DBX- 13 scam
47 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...

is sambong releaf forte good for UTI
15 Replies RSS
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...

Is a round white pill with a "D" and a "12" indicate a 500 mg Metformin? ## Hello, Douglas! How are you? I believe the marking you're looking at is actually an A 12, the A is rounded and does look like a D if you hold the pill sideways. And yes, it is manufactured by Aurobindo Pharma and they list it as containing 500mgs of Metformin. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, flatulence, stomach pain and hypoglycemia. Is there anything else I can help with?
