Highlights This population-based real-world prescription study characterized all new users of liraglutide in northern Denmark from 2009 to 2015. More than half (57%) the patients had liraglutide prescribed as part of drug combinations outside the originally approved indications. Comorbidities or diabetes complications were present in most patients, with the highest prevalence observed among the 73% of initiators who would have been ineligible for the Liraglutide Effect and Action in Diabetes (LEAD) 1-5 trials that led to liraglutide registration, underscoring the need for further post-marketing studies.
