I am having underactive thyroid function & I am on thyroxine medication but I am struggling to lose weight. Is there any  fast acting detox program?

Consider T3, (liothyronine) No but: Many people find that thyroxine does not adequately treat their hypothyroidism and benefit from t3 (liothyronine) or natural thyroid- see http://bit.Ly/15k26u8 ; http://abt.Cm/18gpb3a it is impossible to clear years of toxin accumulation overnite- it's a long process. For great info on a detox program see http://www.Healthy.Net/scr/article.Aspx?Id=1558 it's best to lose slow ; steady- see http://bit.Ly/1dhw9ht. ...Read more

Why do people who go through weight loss start acting differently?

Why do people who go through weight loss start acting differently?

Interesting question: In what way do they start acting differently? Happier or less so? Many folks want to lose weight in a big hurry and that is not very advisable. That ends up "cranky fat" followed by "cranky skinny". If overweight, weight loss is very important but it is not wise to rush it. A pound weight loss a week is 52 pounds in a year and even that might be too rapid. ...Read more

I take seroquel (quetiapine) for my bipolar disorder what vitamin can I take to counter act  the weight gain and help with weight loss?

Seroquel (quetiapine) & weight: There is no known vitamin depletion associated with taking seroquel, (quetiapine) but it is associated with weight gain, Insulin resistance, and type 2 diabetes in some people. For best results you'll need to make sure you're exercising daily, and eating healthy whole (non-processed w/trans fats) foods -- emphasizing veggies & high-fiber carbs (brown rice, if any) rather than rapidly absorbed sugars. ...Read more

Bad wrinkles under eyes. 43 but look 80. Lost weight. Think something wrong beyond age/weight loss. Drink soda, use retin-a, hot showers, need to use eye moisturize. I worry alot. What's cause/remedy?

Cosmetic, treatable: Though you have health issues, this is probably unrelated. Usually hereditary--look at your parents' lower lids. Most likely correctable with outpatient surgery or chemical peel for resurfacing. No otc remedy known to work. Good news-treatment safe ; long-lasting. Bad news-not covered by insurance. ...Read more

I really want to lose my weight fast. Is there any diet pill or any remedy that you use to lose weight fast?

I really want to lose my weight fast. Is there any diet pill or any remedy that you use to lose weight fast?

No: I don't think its wise to take drugs to try to lose weight fast. But just changing your diet drastically can help. I just saw a diet - the "virgin diet" which says if you stop eating 7 foods, for 7 days, you will lose 7 pounds. The foods to stop are - dairy, gluten, eggs, peanuts, sugar, soy, corn. These are common allergens, which contribute to weight gain. ...Read more
