what is this drug, or a medical book of curesron ## Hi Ron, Based on my research, DBX-13 is a comprised of 11 natural ingredients that are each shown to fight diabetes (by balancing blood sugar levels) without many of the harsh side effects of prescription medications. The strange part however, is that I can't find much information on it other than what is mentioned above; not even a list of ingredients. It makes me wonder if it's really legitimate to be honest. Where did you first hear about it? ## I seen it on a video with Jenny Thompson Director of Health Sciences Institute. ## DBX 13 is touted in one of those "we can cure anything" advertising circulars put out by a group called "Health Sciences Institute". Always wondered, if their "cures" are so gre...

DBX- 13 scam
7 Replies RSS
In January 2013 - I recently purchased a subscription to the Health Sciences Institute (HSI) newsletter and got the book "Miracles from the Vault." I scoured the pages to find DBX-13 which they advertised as the diabetes miracle cure, and couldn't find it anywhere. I called HSI, and after three attempts and by threatening to take them to court for false advertising, a response finally came by email. DBX-13 is called X-Cravings. But get this... it is no longer being manufactured. X-Cravings appears to be a formula to help you stop craving food... a diet product... and I guess they apparently felt this would help you lose weight which would help your diabetes. I placed a call to the manufacturer of X-Cravings, Nutricology. Tel: (800)545-9960 who claims they don't know that...

In 1970 I took Bendectin for morning sickness. My daughter developed type one diabetes at age 7. I've read a lot of the post from 2011 but nothing more recent. Has anyone out there had this health issue? ## There have been many reports of health problems in children whose mother's took this medication back then. However, as far as I know, there has actually been no definitive proof as to what problems it did, or didn't cause. Learn more diabetes mellitus details here. Did she suffer any other health problems? Have you? ## I was given Debendox for morning sickness in 1978 - my daughter was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes when she was 2 years old.

I went to the pharmacy yesterday and they told me that the discount card I used is has been discontinued (I had only used it 2 times) When I attempted to obtain a new one on the farxiga website, it registered me but when I attempt to print the card I get an error on their site. Has anyone else had this issue?

In what country is SOLCO Metformin made? ## Solco Healthcare is a U.S. based company that is FDA approved. Have you had some problem with this product? There are more Metformin details available here. ## Solco metformin is made in India like so many other generics of this drug. This is according to the label facsimile shown on the NIH Dailymed site (search on metformin and then locate Soclo in the results), Solco metformin is made in India. ## I obtain my Metformin meds at Publix. Since Publix changed to this manufacturer I noticed this med has a bad rotten odor to them . . . disgusting. I also noticed that since taking them, my body is reacting more -- with nausea, loose bowels and stomach cramping. How is this medication different from the one Publix was previously dispensing? Why the...

How to take medication, before or after meals
6 Replies RSS
I am unclear as to how to take this medication. My doctor just told me to take in the a.m. I have been told to take it before meals and others say after meals. I am unable to reach my physician at this time. ## In our facility we administer the med at 9am; once we are sure that breakfast is available and is eaten. Every individual has a special case and deoendant on how fragile your diabetes is, the doctor may have more specific concerns on when to take the drug(ie if you are fasting or vomiting etc) Since the doctor stated that the AM is the time frame the doctor may not be concerned about the before or after aspect of the dosing too much. But do folow up with the question. The key to diabetes control is the diet/weight management and prescribed exercise with the medication regimen tak...
