My friend got pregnant on a weight loss prog. Taking b12&hcg &lipotropic inj evry week, dr. Conf she is pregnant.How is that posible, she was on the pill?

Pill is not 100%...: The birth control pill is not 100% effective, so occasionally a woman will still get pregnant while on the pill. A woman is more likely to get pregnant if she misses pills sometimes, or forgets to take them at the same time each day. ...Read more

Are hypothyroid and lipotropic injections safe?

Are hypothyroid and lipotropic injections safe?

Different issue: I do not know of any commonly used thyroid injections. Synthroid (thyroxine) can be used IV at half the dose of your usual oral dose. Lipotropic injections may vary. Many of them may contain B12 which can help if you are deficient, but i prefer just a good balanced diet plan for weight loss. ...Read more

Can lipotropic injections cause problems with gall bladder (with no prior history of gall bladder problems)?

Can lipotropic injections cause problems with gall bladder (with no prior history of gall bladder problems)?

Unlikely: "lipotropic injections" are touted to enhance fat metabolism. The principal agent used is vitamin b12. If there is truly any effect, it would actually be to decrease the risk of gallstone formation, rather than causing problems. The principal risk group for gallstones are being female, fertile and overweight. ...Read more

B 12: Very unusual to require vitamin b-12 injections without a full evaluation showing deficiency and the reason for it. It is very unlikely, however, to be making you feel tired and sleepy. ...Read more

Taking b12 lipotropic injections weekly for a month. Period 1day late, never late. pregnancy test, negative. Seems others are reporting the same help!

Taking b12 lipotropic injections weekly for a month. Period 1day late, never late. pregnancy test, negative. Seems others are reporting the same help!

Unrelated: B 12 injections are unlikely to affect the period. If you did not have sex since your last period, there is no concern. If you did, you may wish to repeat the pregnancy test in 4-5 days, unless you get a period by then. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

Do b-12 injections help with fugue and or weight loss?

Do b-12 injections help with fugue and or weight loss?

Not really unless...: you have anemia from a vitamin B12 deficiency. Then they would help with the fatigue associated with the anemia. But there is no convincing evidence that supplemental B12, given by injection or pill, helps fatigue or weight loss. Surprisingly, it is taken quite frequently for these conditions, and any perceived benefit should probably be chalked up to placebo affect. Best wishes:) ...Read more

Can b12 injections hinder weight loss? I have these every 3 months and go to the gym at least 3 times a week sometimes more and eat healthily.

No: B12 injections would not interfere with weight loss. You may need to reduce you intake of food more than you have done. Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco or alcohol in any form. ...Read more
