>Would the combination of metformin and liraglutide cause hypoglycaemia?

I doubt it. Like metformin, it normally only reduces blood glucose when it's abnormally high.

>Is liraglutide stronger in its weight loss properties?

Than metformin? Probably, yes. Liraglutide is being developed specifically as an aid to weight loss. The dose being studied for weight loss is higher than the usual anti-diabetic dose, but standard anti-diabetic doses do often produce some weight loss too.

>Can liraglutide be taken by myself via injection into stomach fat?

Yes, you inject it yourself using the pen injector. It's not difficult to use. Only the lower anti-diabetic doses are approved in Europe. It is approved in some parts of the world for weight loss, but not here. Still, the lower dose would probably be adequate for you, especially since you're on metformin. The brand name is Victoza. The higher strength approved for weight loss in the US is called Saxenda.

>I was looking at Alpha-glucosidase Inhibitors like acarbose and voglibose. What about them for weight loss?

They cause a lot of bloating and farting (flutelence)! Orlistat would be a more sensible choice. Orlistat can be tolerated well with a very low fat diet. It will always be difficult to tolerate if too much fat is consumed.
