No Evidence Any Do!: No scientific evidence any vitamins good for weight loss. Severe deficiency, esp. Malnutrition ? disease? Yes. Vitamins common in so many foods, humans have not maintained all genes/proteins required to make them; typically missing just 1 key biochemistry step.

Will I be able to eat foods with added calcium, iron and magnesium if I'm on synthroid (thyroxine)?
Food and thyroid...: You can eat any kind of food if taking Synthroid (thyroxine) as long as you take this tablet away from all food and all medications. I highly recommend for it to be taken in the middle of the night so you are sure nothing interferes with its absoprtion. Once absobed - typically in one hour - then any food will not affect this medication. ...Read more
Can i safely take succinic acid to help with menopausal symptoms, especially weight gain? I take a multi-vitamin and cranberry supplement daily.
Safe but not proven : I know of no evidence that succinic acid helps with weight gain related to menopause. It is a component of amberen, which claims to have studies showing it helps hot flashes, headaches & anxiety, but even they don't claim their studies show it helps weight loss. I am skeptical about it helping but it seems safe to try (though I am concerned it contains msg). See comment:. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can I take Xenical to lose weight. I take One Alpha (Rocalcitriol ) and Tums (calcium carbonate) to help with Hypocalcemia. Is this going to cause problems.
Since my levels were high, calcium and vitamin d. Any others that will help with weight loss and energy?
Weight loss diet: To be at a healthy weight, activate metabolism by eating protein serving (size of your palm)+complex carbs every 2-3 hrs/day. Sprinkle 3 fruits, 4veggies, at least 3 tsp butter/olive oil and 3 servings milk (greek yogurt). Make sure you take in 80-100 oz pure water/day (8-10 glasses of 8oz water) try putting in fridge with slices of cucumbr & citrus). Exercise 30-45min/day, ok to spilt into blocks. ...Read more
If i'm taking biotin forte with zinc, but i also eat good diet with lots of beans and B vitamin foods- will this cause excess B and zinc to build up?
No: There is no worry about B vitamins "building up." The only B vitamin that our body stores is B12 and it is non-toxic. The only B vitamin known to be toxic is B6 but one usually has to take over 200 mg/day; it is impossible to get anywhere near that via diet. Zinc toxicity is not known unless one ingests at least 100 mg/day long-term. Diet levels never approach this. So no need to worry. ...Read more
How can regular exercise or dance help for healthy bones and low vit D levels; which is the safest vit d supplement for 5 yo kid?
Movement: Movement forces our bodies to work against gravity and make stinger bones. Dietary sources of Vit D safest - dairy products, eggs, salmon, tuna (any oily fish), fortified breads and cereals. I personally like the calcium/Vit D chewables as some of my patients can't tolerate dairy. A little sunshine is good too but avoid excessive exposures. ...Read more
I am on a low carb diet, using mct oil. Which supplement is healthier to include to speed up my weight loss? Cla or calcium pyruvate? Or others?
Pyruvate healthier: Research on the weight loss benefits of both is limited, but some studies suggest potential hazards of cla so i'd choose pyruvate- see http://www.Med.Nyu.Edu/content?Chunkiid=21676 ; http://www.Med.Nyu.Edu/content?Chunkiid=21633 the key to weight loss is not supplements but long term diet changes (like http://bit.Ly/1dhw9ht). But I am impressed with http://bit.Ly/178bmuf ; http://bit.Ly/1hwyc46. ...Read more

Can I take vitamin C pills (always made of sodium/potassium bicarbonate, (sodium bicarbonate) ascorbate, benzoate...) w. pulmonary hypertension requiring low sodium diet?
Yes, however...: I strongly advise you take Vitamin C, ideally 1000 mg 2-3x/day, but you should try to find forms without sodium. I don't know what's available in Denmark, but in the US you can find ascorbic acid, or calcium or magnesium ascorbate without sodium. Lypo-spheric Vit. C is esp. well-absorbed,but has 120 mg of sodium, but a low sodium diet usually allows 2000mg/day. Vit. C is best with bioflavonoids. ...Read more
I take biotin and chromium picolinate which supposedly promote fat, protein, and sugar metabolism. Is this enough to at least help me lose weight?
Eat more calories!: I wonder why you would want to gain weight. Is it that you are underweight to begin with, are losing weight for unknown reason, or want to gain to get into a certain class for wrestling. The recommendations would be different for each one. If there is any question about an abnormal weight, see an internist (adult medical doc). More calories = more weight--as simple as that. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
