Diabetes Overview

Diabetes mellitus (DM), commonly referred to as diabetes, is a group of metabolic diseases in which there are high blood sugar levels over a prolonged period.[2] Symptoms of high blood sugar include frequent urination, increased thirst, and increased hunger.

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...

DBX- 13 scam
19 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

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...

HL02 small round white pill

I've tried looking this up on the internet but with no luck. It has HLO2 on 1 side and nothing on the other. It's white and round. Not sure if it's a zero or an O. My niece found it on the floor and just need to know if I should be freaked out or not. ## Hello, Haj! How are you? Is the marking possibly H over 102? If so, this tablet is manufactured by Heritage Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 500mgs of Metformin. The FDA classifies this as an oral antidiabetic medication. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, stomach pain, flatulence and hypoglycemia. If this doesn't match, please post back and let me know, so I can do some more searching. Thanks! ## Hello Haj, I am currently taking some small chewable homeopathic pills from a com...

Doctor is recommending Farxiga along with Metformin to lower my A1C. I'm a little afraid to try it. Has anyone taken it? ## Hello, Nancy! How are you? Exactly why are you afraid to try it? If you can post back and be specific about what side effects or risks concern you, I'll be glad to find information on them for you and help you. :-) The normal side effects can include nausea, sore throat, back pain and flu like symptoms. ## I have an A1C of 7.7 - it was as low as 6.3 when I first went on Metformin. I take 3 a day - tried a 4th one but made me little queasy. So she suggested the Farxiga and when I said yes to it I thought she was switching me not adding another med. Anyway I went home to research it and the bladder cancer bothers me, along with the major complaints about the ...

I take 1500mg in the morning after breakfast and 1000 mg after dinner. I was told it can lead to early memory loss. Is this true? I've been taking this for quite a few years now. ## Hello, Mary! How are you? No, I've not seen that listed among its possible side effects, the only psychiatric one listed is headaches, according to the FDA, Others may possibly include nausea, dizziness, hypoglycemia, flatulence and diarrhea.

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...
