    my obgyn suggested adding victoza to metformin to help loose weight. I doubt my endocrinologist will be able to make it state funded. It costs over 100 euros for package, how long would I go with one package? How many pens are there?

    Hi. Have you tried all diet options before moving to Victoza? That means keeping the carbs way down probably below 100gm/day. For most people that would produce a weight reduction and help reduce insulin resistance.
