Re: Diet pills

Ask your doctor to give you a diet. My doctor did it to control my blood sugar and while it is tough, it works.

Diet pills won't control your sugar. Now be honest, you wouldn't ask for diet pills if you didn't want to use them for the purpose they claim to be.

Re: Diet pills

Pretty much all diabetic drugs are prescription only, as are test strips for glucose testing. If you take the list - even the uk list - the new doc may know the swiss equivalent.

I am confused... Is she asking for her diabetes medications or diet pills?

Re: Diet pills

Do go to the docs... Make sure you get all your drugs through the health insurance.

I do not understand how diet pills would help control blood sugar and glucose though

No idea. She says she's diabetic though.

Appetite suppresants suppress the appetite, so you eat less, thus keeping down blood sugar levels. Or something like that.

I dunno. I'm not a doctor but I once pretended to be one behind the bikesheds.

You get told to buy something - but don't know what you get told to buy.



(Come on guys, no one going to ask her whether it is type 1 or 2?)

So it is a drug to control diabetes - specifically type 2 - and according to the entirely useless wikipedia:

Metformin (BP, pronounced /mɛtˈfɔrmɨn/, met-FAWR-min; sold as Glucophage) is an oral antidiabetic drug in the biguanide class. It is the first-line drug of choice for the treatment of type 2 diabetes, in particular, in overweight and obese people and those with normal kidney function.[


You couldn't make it up really could you

Are you sure that you're English (NB press and hold shift when you require a capital letter; and the little dot can also sometimes be used).
