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...

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...

metformin hurts
2 Replies RSS
I took Metformin once a day. Then the Dr. wanted me to take two a day. I took 2 a day then saw it was making me feel bad, tired, sleepy, no energy in the afternoon. I stopped the 2 dose & went back to 1. A month later I tried again with 2 a day. Now my muscles hurt like they have arthritis, hurting in muscles not joints. After 3 weeks of trying I stopped the 2 dose & went back to 1. My question is should I go to Dr. & have they change it all together or take 1 metformin & something else with it. I am afraid the Metformin is hurting my body because I am having bad reactions to 2. ## Hello, Debbie! How are you doing? I'm sorry about the way you're feeling. However, some of your symptoms were likely due to your body adjusting to the lowered sugar levels from taking ...

Glycomet 500 Mg Side Effects

my mother has been prescribed Glycomet 500 mg. But after she has started the medicine, she is experiencing problem of Piles. Is this problem related to glycomet ## Glycomet contains the active ingredient Metformin, it is an oral antidiabetic agent, used to help lower or control blood sugar. It is not known to cause hemorrhoids. Has she consulted her doctor? It is difficult to say how any medication will affect any individual and thus, it may or may not be related. It could also be due to dietary changes, if she's had to adjust what she eats, due to being diabetic. If she's been constipated, at all, and straining to have bowels movements, that may be contributing to the problem. ## effects of glycomet on pregnancy ## i was given glycomet 500mg but soon problem started wth me that...
