Victoza and weight loss
This was approved by the FDA, one of the things is people are seeing massive weight loss with it. My doctor is putting me on this and Test E. Has anyone taken this.

No, it's too new. I like to wait for a couple of years to make sure everything's cool. Let us know how you do with it. I'm interested to know.

Going on it in 2 weeks under Doctor supervision. The Doctor has about 50 patients on it and the results are staggering.

Any sides? Saggy skin, fatigue, dizziness, headaches, anything?

I start this week, I will keep you posted. A guy I know dropped 30lbs and did not change his diet nor did he work out much, my diet is clean and working out 5 days per week so we will see. The Doctor told me its going to melt off so I am excited to see what happens. The Doctor told me headaches and maybe a little nauseous but after about 2 weeks, they subside.

I am in to it 1 week, I am down 9lbs already this stuff just makes you not hungry at all. I am running Test E not to loose muscle with it and forcing myself to eat high proteins.

"In animal studies, Victoza caused thyroid tumors—including thyroid cancer—in some rats and mice. It is not known whether Victoza causes thyroid tumors or a type of thyroid cancer called medullary thyroid cancer (MTC) in people which may be fatal if not detected and treated early. Do not use Victoza if you or any of your family members have a history of MTC or if you have Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia syndrome type 2 (MEN 2). While taking Victoza, tell your doctor if you get a lump or swelling in your neck, hoarseness, trouble swallowing, or shortness of breath. These may be symptoms of thyroid cancer."

Update down 32lbs 15 more to go then the doctor is going to taper me off it and increase the test dosage. I feel awesome, he did blood work again and everything looks perfect.

Are you still feeling good? Lots of energy?
02-02-2011, 05:18 AM #20
Down 30lbs feel awesome no side effects and the test is really doing me well, it is adding on muscle and the fat weekly continues to come off. Your just not hungry, many would think you would loose muscle I am only eating lean high protein and I think the test is helping big time. 15lbs to go, then I will taper off it.

I am glad that you lost the weight.
Allthough it is very good to lose unwanted and unnecessery weight, I think it is more important how you lose it then the fact that you have lost it.
The reason for the 'how' to be important is that this how reveals the true problem the weight is there in the first place.
Losing weight through correct diet and excercise is an indication that the person understood what the real problem in the first place was, namely wrong diet and lack of excercise, and has effectively changed that for the good.
Losing weight in other ways that are mostly facilitated through medication will in some cases bring the same results but will not adress the real problem underneath (such factors as motivation, knowledge, consistency).
Also losing weight without knowledge of the body and diet will produce less total weight, but the qualitative results will be a lot less then when using correct methods to lose weight and preserve muscle.
In many cases the subject, once off treatment, will continue doing the same as before because this root problem has not been adressed.
It is like a see-saw, the person is in the middle and there are two compounds doing the work ('weight off' on one side and 'muscle preservation' on other).
The results will be that the total weight of the see-saw will be lowered but the person wil remain unchanged.

Good read..the doctor who I am under see's it as a way not only to aid in weight loss but to also retrain your brain. On this I can't even look at junk food, it just smells and seems like crap. I do not know how it effects the mind, but I have no desire to eat anything junk food related. The real test will be when I taper off it, but I can say smelling junk food at this time makes me sick. I have been eating tuna right out of the can and its yummy, were a year ago I thought it was gross.
