One Daily Diet Support Medication
None: Almost every diet med is a stimulant which cannot be taken over the long run without side effects. Long lasting weight loss has only been achieved with 3 meals a day minimum, usually high in fruits & vegetables with some protein like chicken or fish, some whole grains, like quinoa, plenty of water, and moderate daily exercise. Figure the # & size of meals by satisfaction and weekly weight loss. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Diabetes treatment: You have diabetes and are taking metformin. A glu of 7.5 (135 mg/dl) is a relatively good level. It is better to follow your a1c. If you have only had diabetes a few years, and are only on metformin, you should aim for an a1c less than 7.5. Focus on exercise and diet. Your glu will vary day to day. Perhaps stress. But take a long term approach. ...Read more

Dr : Dr lin provided excellent input. Your diet is extremely restrictive. There is a rainbow of colors when it comes to vegetables and fruits. Each contain different enzymes. To get a balance, you need to be eating a variety of colors. It is not surprising that your vitamin d levels are low with your limited food intake. Since you do not appear to take in red meat, you may also have a low carnitine level. I very much agree with the recommendation of working with a nutritionist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Whats the best over-the-counter drug thats the same as the phen fen diet drug since they took that one off the market?
No OTC meds exist!: I wish there was an alternative to phen/fen. On a brighter side, the phentermine-still able to be rx by a knowledgeable weight loss physician was responsible for 11% of the 14% total avg. Wt loss of the combo. Fenfluramine (pondimin) was responsible for about 3% of the total avg. Weight loss. The attractive aspect of Fenfluramine was that it mitigated the negative side effects of phentermine. ...Read more

Tried Melanotan 2 (tanning product) injections 4 years back, body fat went up 10% in one month and haven't been able to drop it since despite daily exercise and strict diet. Can hormones be fixed?
It would not be: possible to "undo" injections, especially one given that long ago. However, your fat gain may have been coincidental or at least only modestly influenced by the injection of melanocyte stimulating hormone. I suggest your best alternative is the tried and true one: reduce daily calorie intake by 250-300 cal/day and expend that many more daily through exercise, especially weight training. Good luck! ...Read more

How about the drugs?: There is nothing you can add or subtract from diet to pass a drug test, except eliminating the drugs. You don't need all that water, and it will cause a dilute urine which will automatically flunk the drug test. This idea that we need lots of water is bogus; thirst is the best guide. We get all the water we need from our food (60% water), if your urine is dilute you are drinking too much. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
