Jardiance and magnesium
Post a Reply
I started with 10mg of Jardiance around three weeks back. I am already on 2000mg of metformin. Since I started Jardiance I've been suffering badly from thrush, around every 90 minutes I am peeing. Initially I showed around 10 pounds of weight loss and now again I am gaining the weight back. My other concern is that my magnesium levels have gone down as I am peeing too much and the absorption of the nutrient is less. Please advise...

is sambong releaf forte good for UTI

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...

DBX- 13 scam
189 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...

what particular ailment does renalin capsule cure? I am suffering from UTI because I used to eat salty foods. Can I take this medicine? ## Hi Mayie, sorry to hear about the UTI. From what I have gathered, Renalin is a combination of four herbs that are supposed to support kidney wellness. The ingredients are reported to be: [1] Orthosiphon aristatus (Balbas Pusa or Cat’s whiskers, a source of essential oils and flavones) - listed in the Philippine Pharmacopeia 1 as a traditional medicinal plant for bacterial and inflammatory diseases of the lower urinary tract and approved by the German Commission E for urinary tract infections and for kidney and bladder stones. Lagerstroemia speciosa (Banaba, a source of corsolic acid) is traditionally used for diabetes, as a diureti...

Victoza and Hives

I have been on Victoza for about 2 weeks now and I have broken out in hives/rash around my mid section. My body itches but I'm not sure if it's related to this or not. Anyone else experience this? ## It would be best to have this symptoms checked out by your doctor, according to FDA reports, there is a chance that it might be an allergic reaction. Have you been exposed to anything else new, such a a different detergent, soap, or perfume? Have you eaten any new foods? Are you on any other medications?

has metformin been known to cause overactive bladder
1 Reply RSS
I'm a diabetic and i want to know if metformin can make you have an overactive bladder to the point where you lose control of your bladder at night and wet the bed? ## That is more likely due to the diabetes itself, and not the medication, according to NIH reports. The FDA lists the typical side effects of the medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, flatulence, and hypoglycemia. Have you been checking your blood sugar? What have you levels been, recently? What types of foods do you eat? Are you on any other medications?
