FDA Approval of Metanx

Is it FDA approved? My prescription plan stopped paying and the reason was it was not FDA approved at that time. Since I stopped taking Metanx my circulation is not that good and I want to restart. ## Spoke to FDA approval is not required as Metanx falls under a food supplement. It is not a drug it's a combination of vitamins and folic acid. It is monitored but it does require a prescription. ## That is correct, Metanx is considered a medical food, not a drug, so it is registered with the FDA, but not approved by them. It is basically a nutritional supplement that is formulated to help meet the nutritional needs of people with diabetic nerve damage. Given the expense, if they are no longer covering it for you, it might be best to ask your doctor about trying other alternatives, if t...

Invocana, Victosa and Basaglar negative reactions

I am a type 2 diabetic and I'm taking other diabetic meds along with Invocana. I'm taking other meds, such as Basaglar, and Victosa.

DBX-13 scam

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...

Metformin 850mg Side Effects

Can metformin 850 mg can cause a loss in weight of the diabetic? Thanks ## I've been diabetic since 2000 and have been controlling it by diet, but after 6 yrs it is not in control so i started metformin 500 x 2 daily. But after, in 2010 my sugar was staying too high so i was prescribed janumet which caused me to gain 5kgs in a year. Plus my feet hurt a lot and I'm feeling very weak. Please help me. ## Sandy, many type 2 diabetics tend to have gained weight from the diabetes, then they will lose some once they start getting it under control, such as by using the medication. However, if it's a severe weight loss, then you should seek medical attention to have it checked out. Rozy, how have your blood sugar levels been recently? Are you also continuing to watch what you eat? ##...
