DBX- 13 scam
98 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...

will krimson 35 help me in loosing weight and curing acne
Post a Reply
I am 19 years old. I have been taking FORMITOL( contains metformin) since my doctor told me that I have PCOS. Recently, I consulted another Gynae, she prescribed me Krimzon 35 saying that I have normal GTT level, so I don't need to take metformin. I haven't started taking Krimzon 35 as i haven't got my periods yet. My breast are large. I am afraid that it may enlarge my breast even more. I have severe acne and hirsutism too. I am not able to loose weight despite of exercising and dieting. Can you tell me whether this tablet will help me in curing acne and loose weight. And its effect on breast and other parts of my body.

how do i know if my metformin 500 mg is real & not a placebo
3 Replies RSS
Hi, i recently bought metformin 500 mg tablets. How can i tell it's a real pill and not a placebo/sugar pill? Please help. ## Hello, Destiny! How are you? Where did you purchase them? Are there any markings on them? This information is what would enable me to check them out for you. The FDA lists the typical side effects of Metformin as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, flatulence, stomach pain and hypoglycemia. ## All of my melatonin is 10mg. I would investigate this. 500 MG of melatonin sounds too good to be true and if it is then it probably is too good to be true. ## She is asking anout METFORMIN! Not melatonin! And their oval with a score down the middle of both sides. One side has #'s C/474. And I am on 1000 mgs. Hope this helps someone.
