Because I will be diabetic two years as went by still no signs of being diabetic. On victoza and my health started to change I started to get bigger and bigger the doctors all said I was eatting to much. My body took a turn for the worst. Test after test after test. Nothing found. So not being able to find anything wrong with me.it all came to a head when my dog was nose butting me in the tummy. For a week. I thought I had a chest cold coming on. So I went to hospital and hit the floor with pain in my face and lose of one eye use. Dec 2013.
