Currently take metformin 2,000mg daily. Can I take ubiquitous CoQ10, alpha lipoic acid, GTF chromium & glycinate magnesium supplements with metformin?
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. I would focus on diet & exercise so you don't meet to take metformin either. Get your BMI < 25 & you likely won't need it. ...Read more
Is 100mg ubiquinone (normal Coenzyme Q10) equivalent to 100mg ubiquinol ( active form of Coenzyme Q10 )? Thank you
Not as well absorbed: Studies suggest that the blood level of CoQ10 from taking ubiquinol is 1.5 to 8 times greater than taking the same amount of ubiquinone. Thus, one might need to take 150-300 mg of Ubiquinone to get the same benefits of 100 mg of Ubiquinol. See http://www.lef.org/magazine/mag2007/jan2007_report_coq10_01.htm for more info. ...Read more

Is Whey Protein supplements & glutamine supplement safe for gout users?
None will effect gou: Gout is related to URIC ACID and PURINES, not amino acids or protein supplements. BUT, since everything you mention is a complete waste of money, why bother to ask? There are meds used to control gout in different ways. Low dose aspirin and thiazide diuretics tend to raise uric acid levels. Alcohol, especially in large amounts, often causes attacks. Low purine diets are slightly effective. ...Read more

Is it necessary to take medicine for liver functioning (Himalaya liver 52ds) while taking supplements (whey protein, BCAAs, glutamine, creatine etc)?
Unnatural substances: Taking multiple substances sold as supplements or body enhancers is unnatural (eating food is natural), and such supplements are not tested for effects and side effects, compared to the testing that is required of real medications. Thus, all sorts of claims can be made by sellers and other people, but in reality nobody knows for sure what good or bad things can happen. As they say, "Buyer beware." ...Read more

Safe to take lorazepam w/ nature made magnesium supplement(mag ox, cellulose gel, croscarmellose sodium, mag stearate, silicon dioxide, stearic acid)?
Safe but not best Mg: It is totally safe but magnesium oxide is a very poorly-absorbed form of magnesium- it may work as a laxative but won't raise your magnesium levels! you would be far better off taking magnesium glycinate, taurate or citrate! see http://drcarolyndean.Com/magnesium_miracle/. ...Read more
Yes, but not by much: Human growth hormone can be stimulated by a number of ways, but the stimulation will not significantly increase the daily 24hr amount in any given person. Put another way, one may produce a spirt of hgh by taking l-arginine but the additional amount is just a drop in the bucket when compared to the 24hr amount of hgh that the body make. The best way to increase hgh levels is by DX and rx. ...Read more
Taking glucosamine chondroitin, hyaluronic acid, collagen, resveratrol supplements for back. Will taking all these together create liver issues?
What is diagnosis?: That's always the most important place to start. Have you had an evaluation for cause of back pain with an allopathic doc, or a rheumatologist? Back pain in 28 year olds sometimes can be due to autoimmune arthritis, and the treatments available are far better than your current regimen. Glucosamine is a proven therapy, the rest are likely a waste of money. Consider getting a rheumatology opinion. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

It could have to do with your thyroid/parathyroid and you appear to have symptoms of low thyroid.
