Liraglutide is an injectable medication that is sometimes given to patients with Type 2 diabetes along with oral medications to help keep blood sugar levels under control. This medication stimulates the pancreas to produce more insulin when blood sugar levels rise too high. It cannot be used for Type 1 diabetes because this type of diabetes involves the complete inability to produce insulin.
