SCALE: Liraglutide increases health-related quality of life in obesity, prediabetes
October 20, 2017

The liraglutide 3-mg injection (Saxenda, Novo Nordisk) was approved by the FDA in 2014, and the FDA approved an updated product label earlier this year to include safety and efficacy data from this study.
