Can a non diabetic who has some kind of numbness on the feet take mecobalamin? ## Yes, as long as their doctor approves, it just a b vitamin supplement, vitamin b12 to be precise. It is often given to diabetics to help support nerve health and function. The U.S. FDA lists its typical side effect as just being nausea, due to it's potency. Is there anything else I can help with?

How are you doing? Has there been any change? It is most likely due to the Cardace, this class of medications is well known for causing such side effects and, once they start, they don't usually go away, so you may need to see your doctor about trying a different medication, as reported by the NIH. Other side effects may include nausea, headache and increased urination. Is there anything else I can help with?

I want to know what is in this medicine, the amount of eash property- how much more than an over the counter drug/ ## Please explain what is in this medicine and also is vitamin C and B12 over the counter just as good. Thank you ## I just started this metanx a little over a week now. I was given a pamphlet on it. It states that metanx contains the active ingredients of folic acid, vitamin B6, and vitamin B12 which allow the body to absorb them without having to break them down first like you would have to do with OTC vitamins. It is only available with a prescription and you take two of the pills a day. Hope this information helps. ## The ingredients list provided by Krystal is correct, it is generally given to help Diabetic Neuropathy patients. The breakdown is 2.8mgs of Folic Acid, 25...

My blood sugar readings are going up
1 Reply RSS
Started taking 25 mg Jardiance daily about 2+ weeks ago, and have noticed that my blood sugar readings have been going up pretty consistently; from around 7 to 10 - 12 in the morning; and from 8 - 9 to 15 - 17 in the evening. Have not changed any other prescriptions and my diet has been the same right thru. Anyone else seen this? ## Hello, WayneM! How are you? Not every medication works for everyone that tries it. Have you experienced any of the other issues the FDA reports it as being known to cause, such as yeast infection or dehydration? Can anyone else that's been on it chime in with their experiences?

DBX- 13 scam
90 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...

DBX-13 Diabetes Miracle Cure
1 Reply RSS
I too have received a similar email "talk video" on this same topic. Only, it is from a British (U.K.) based outfit, but with exactly the same format as the HSI one that is being mentioned throughout the discussions here. It is being narrated by a "Rachael Linkie", "Managing Director", supposedly of the "Journal of Natural Health Solutions", and the subject title is..."7 Riskiest Drugs Big Pharma Wants You To Swallow". In it, is also the mention by name, of DBX-13, as the Diabetes Miracle Cure, along with a few other medical conditions and their appropriate natural cures like, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, dementia, etc.. This particular site is offering free download of their book offer "Treasury of Underground Remedies: 167 Natural ...

metformin smell

why does it smell like fish? ## I got my script refilled the other day and the new one smells like fish too! My first bottle (different manufact) did not smell like fish. Beginning to wonder if it is of good quaility ## It is an odor from one of the fillers they use in making the medication, nothing to worry about. Since each company that makes the generic version of med can use different fillers, then some might have the odor and some won't. ## Yes, it is too something to worry about! With all the horrible cheap fillers being used these days by money grubbing foreign countrues - killing our animals and probably us too. The brand I got from Walgreens is fine - even old pills dont take on a smell. But the cheap kind sold by Walmart and as I know of, Strogers hospital in chicago smell...
