    Hello everyone, hope you are all keeping well and safe!

    I've discussed with my consultant about starting Liraglutide, I will be starting it next week. I am just wondering if there are any other Type 1 diabetics who are on this medication too? How have you got on with it?

    Hi. Are you taking this to lose weight otherwise I would question why you are taking it? Are you also reducing your carbs as part of your diet?

    karen8967 & Daibell, it is normally for type 2 but my consultant mentioned it and we have talked about how it could help me along with the pros and cons but I really wanted to try it. It's worth me trying it if helps with my diabetes and weight lose, mainly the weight loss as then I'd need less insulin. Over the next few weeks when I start it, I will be speaking to a diabetic nurse and how I can change my carb ratio. X
