DBX- 13 scam
109 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...

Been it a week and now my blood sugars are higher, and I tried to call them and they will not return my calls, so tell me why am I taking something that is making my blood sugars higher ? Now I eat less and now sugar is higher used to be 140 to 180 now I is 186 to 235 which I have never been this high , so what is the deal , how long do you have to be on it to start working. OR maybe it does not work on me. ## Hi Gary, Sorry to hear about the medication not working. From your description I get the sense that it might just be a good idea to ask your doctor about trying something else altogether. Even though Tanzeum (albiglutide) is meant to be used 'along with diet and exercise', a week in without any sort of improvement is a little nerve racking in my opinion, especially since b...

how many tabs should be taken to treat UTI? ## nothing ## I am afraid that this seems to be an over the counter supplement touted as a drug alternative for urinary problems. That said, it is, therefore, not proven to actually help with anything. I can't even find information on what it contains or exactly what they recommend you use it to treat or prevent. Urinary tract infections normally require an antibiotic, which is prescribed by your doctor, according to the type and severity of the infection. Have you consulted a doctor regarding the use of this or your possible need for an antibiotic? Self-treatment could result in a more severe infection and illness than what you are already dealing with. I am going to try to see if I can find any more information on this. Is there anything...
