Is it bad to take sports supplements with diabetes? Currently consuming protein/creatine shake, sd matrix, fat burners, fish oils vitamin C tablets?

Is it bad to take sports supplements with diabetes? Currently consuming protein/creatine shake, sd matrix, fat burners, fish oils vitamin C tablets?

Since all that: Junk is a waste of money, doesn't do anything positive for you except spend your money, why do it? Besides, you don't know what's in any of that stuff, what harm it could possibly do to you, how it could interact negatively with medication or other supplements, etc. Save your money and use it on monitoring strips, healthy food, valid medication, etc. That can help you live better and longer. ...Read more

Help vitamin shopping is a pain i'm looking for omega3 with high potencyw/1000mg pure omega3 fats per pill + added vitamin d no luck! any suggestions?

2000 u vit d: Take 2000 units vitamin d3/day and forget the omega 3's - or find them somewhere else if you feel you must have them. Eat healthy and exercise. I doubt there is a quality combo pill available. Eating healthy is a lot easier and cheaper than vitamin shopping. ...Read more

Does not matter: I would not take ANY of these. Some are harmful. All are useless in the absence of specific indications. If you have medical problems, see your DR. If you have no symptoms, realize that the purveyors of all these are making a sucker out of you. ...Read more

Is vitamin C extra usage bad for health?

Is vitamin C extra usage bad for health?

Maybe: The World Health Organization recommends 45 mg/day of vitamin C for healthy adults. Vitamin C is an antioxidant & some have recommended high doses to prevent disease & promote health. It does seem to be fairly well tolerated at high doses, though it may cause kidney stones or problems in those with certain gene changes. The biggest issue is that the evidence that it is truly beneficial is weak. ...Read more

Is it safe to take levothyroxine50mg, adipex37.5mg, vitamin b complex, c & e, magnesium & iodine supplements in morning? I'm on atenolol25mg @ night?

Is it safe to take levothyroxine50mg, adipex37.5mg, vitamin b complex, c & e, magnesium & iodine supplements in morning? I'm on atenolol25mg @ night?

Safe not advisable: Taking all those medicines together is probably safe but not advisable. Levothuroxine has to be taken on an empty stomach with a glass of water and no bother meds. This means an hour before or 2 hour after a meal. Food and other meds affect absorption. Vitamins and minerals best absorbed with food. Adipex should be taken with a meal i believe. ...Read more

Is it essential to take a multi vitamin? I'm currently taking vit d3, magesium & executive b stress formula

Is it essential to take a multi vitamin? I'm currently taking vit d3, magesium & executive b stress formula

Absolutelynot: The majority of studies show no. Enefits from taking multivitamins unless you are deficient! in which case you should first turn to food sources to address the deficiency. Don't buy into the hype about the value of these pills. There is little to no value, and potential harm in taking them. You definitely don't need them at your age and you are probably duplicating between the products you alread. ...Read more

Is vitamin C or drinks contain vitamin C harmful for patient with ckd?  I have ckd

Depends on amount: Vitamin c is an essential vitamin. However, excessive amounts can lead to kidney stones, which could possibly affect your ckd. I would avoid taking any extra amounts of vitamin c, such as supplements/tablets, but the normal amount you get in your diet should be fine as long as you're not consuming excessive amounts. ...Read more

Is b complex vitamin  good for cancer patient ? And does surbex xt medicine contain b complex vitamin?

See http://cancertherapies.Org/bkinfo.Htm no one has studied b vits alone. Surbex xt has four b vitamins but not the full b complex. ...Read more

Is it safe to take 2-b12, 2-b6, 3-lysine, 15000ui of d - vitamins, 4 tbls of crushed flaxseed and also 4 jillian michaels fat burner per day?

Is it safe to take 2-b12, 2-b6, 3-lysine, 15000ui of d - vitamins, 4 tbls of crushed flaxseed and also 4 jillian michaels fat burner per day?

Why do that?: No good reason to be taking that combo of stuff. Don't know doses of b6 (too much- nerve damage); 15k iu of d (d2 or d3-different dosing) daily is too much (liver toxic, etc). Jillian michaels product at least says it has 100mg caffeine/dose (from guarana). You have no idea how much of anything else is in the proprietary blend. Can't recommend this regimen-it's wack. ...Read more
