Is glucose balance supplement safe for pregnant women?

Is glucose balance supplement safe for pregnant women?

Why?: Glucose is normally low in pregnant women, and there is no reason to take supplements. Most are tube feeding products which the company markets to people who don't know better and says they help you lose weight or balance your glucose. All they are is caloric supplements. Food tastes better, is healthier and cheaper. Forget the supplements, they may be safe, but silly. ...Read more

Is it true that for obese men, doctors will recommend a strict 800 calorie diet but wont with obese women? If so, why?

Is it true that for obese men,  doctors will recommend a strict 800 calorie diet but wont with obese women? If so, why?

I don't think so: The key to weight loss for men or women is reducing calories long-term. Men usually burn more calories per day than women, assuming similar levels of activity and similar body mass. Every individual's daily calorie needs are different, but to lose weight, one must keep reducing calories until the weight starts coming off. If weight is stable, it means the body still has enough calories to keep it. ...Read more

Are women using hormone replacement therapy at risk for other health conditions?

Are women using hormone replacement therapy at risk for other health conditions?

Yes: The estrogen hormone increases the risk of deep vein clots, a dangerous condition, to about twice the baseline rate. It also increases the risk of cancer of the uterus unless combined with a Progesterone hormone. This combination protects the uterus but somewhat increases the risk of breast cancer, an effect not seen with estrogen alone. Hormone replacement also increases the risk of bleeding. ...Read more

I'm breastfeeding woman and i'm very slim i want to take planet Ayurveda gain weight pills tablets for women & men fast!- and they said 100% safe?

If you are..: ...Eating a healthy well balanced diet, and if you are not losing weight, then stop worrying about how slim you are. As a general rule, slim people live longer and have fewer health problems than over weight people. As for the pill you ask about: i've looked at it and i very much doubt the claims they make. You can't "make women curvier and increase men's mass" with the same product. It's nonsense. ...Read more

Is hCG diet dangerous?

Is hCG diet dangerous?

Its probably safe: It will raise testosterone levels in men. The HCG diet has had side effects, but those are due to rapid weight loss (gall stones) and eating only 500 calories per day, starvation is not a great plan. I doubt the HCG itself causes many or any problems if used in low doses. ...Read more
