Liraglutide helps control blood glucose in people with Type 2 diabetes. The drug — sold under the brand name Victoza — was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2010.

Serious Health Risks

In trials, Victoza increased the development of pancreatitis and papillary thyroid cancer versus other diabetes drugs. Because Victoza affects the pancreas, it can alter blood glucose levels and influence other bodily functions.

These effects mean Victoza can cause serious health problems, including:

  • Renal Failure: Victoza can cause dehydration, renal failure, or worsening of kidney function. Symptoms include abnormal heart rhythms, blood in urine, bone damage, or muscle paralysis.
  • Pancreatitis: Victoza directly alters insulin levels in the body and may cause an inflammation of the pancreas. Severe pancreatitis may lead to infection, pancreatic cancer, shock, or death.
  • Thyroid Cancer: In animal studies, Victoza increased the risk of thyroid cancer. Throat pain, difficulty swallowing, voice changes, and swollen lymph nodes are common symptoms.

FDA Requires Warning Label

Given the serious health risks, the FDA has required Victoza include a warning label. This label advises patients of the possibility of acute renal failure and worsening of chronic renal failure. The label also warns against allergic reactions that may require immediate medical attention.
