Liraglutide Effectiveness: Is There a Real-Word Clinical Benefit? Patients who received the same nutritional and physical activity instructions, but did not use any medication, should be compared with their counterparts who took liraglutide to assess whether the drug was effective against obesity. Elucidation of such issues would require a controlled clinical trial, using different doses of liraglutide, and an assessment of the drug efficacy in addition to physical activity practice and a healthy diet plan.
