Perhaps another A1c test in in order. Labs are not infallible and maybe the test was not correct or had a mess up in it. I would ask for that first. When you say high at night and in the morning, how high are you running? If you are having prolonged high numbers over night, they can contribute to a higher A1c even if your daytime numbers are good. Maybe even changing when you take your Victoza might help. I am not sure how it functions, but that could be something to ask your doctor.
