In brief: The highest

Victoza (liraglutide) is a great medication for the treatment of diabetes.
It is a GLP-1 analog. It increases insulin production, suppresses glucagon production and slows down gastric emptying suppressing appetite and often times leading to weight loss. The most effective dose for reducing the appetite and slowing down the stomach is 1.8.
