Supplements: 27F of unknown medical Hx other than metformin. Wants to know if can take several supplements. ANS. If u need to waste money on unproven supplements that may contain dangerous additives (the are no standards for supplements) then you might consider it. I never recommend them.

That means nobody really knows what effects they have, how much of each chemical ingredient is truly in each pill, how accurate their dosing recommendations are, and how true or false their claims are. Might be a use-at-your-own-risk situation. ...Read more
