A Review Of Three Weight Loss Medications

A Review of Three Weight Loss Medications Medications for Weight Loss When You Have Type 2 Diabetes Millions of overweight Americans struggle with their weight every day. Diabetics, especially type 2 diabetics, are often told, when diagnosed, that they must lose weight. The most common strategies for weight loss are diet and exercise; however, when obese people are unable to lose weight using these techniques, medications may be prescribed to achieve a healthier weight. Here we look at three of these medications in order to educate our readers so that you can ask informed questions of medical teams. Phentermine was first approved for the treatment of obesity in 1959, and it became very popular when articles were written about its efficacy in 1992. It was used in combination with both fenfluramine (Pondimin) and dexfenfluramine (Redux) until studies showed a possible link between fenfluramines and heart-valve problems. Today, phentermine alone is used as an appetite suppressant. It activates the adrenergic system (ie, the "fight or flight" response), causing it to release norepinepherine.

    i was diagnosed with PCOS and taking metformin... im losing 1kg every day. ive been taking metformin for 3days now and lose 3kgs. my doctor prescribed me take metformin for 3months... im afraid that ill become underweight..


    Metformin has done some wonderful things for me but weight loss is not one. My endocrinologist did not want to put me on it since I didn't appear to have any metabolic dysfunction. I asked if I could try it anyway. Two years later the calcified cysts on my ovaries are gone and my body pelt has disappeared in some areas or become very fine. My arm hair is normal now. I have been on birth control and spironolactone since 2001 for PCOS symptoms but I wasnt diagnosed until a few years ago. I just had my 6th month blood work done for my endocrinologist and all my levels were good. Its so nice not to have elevated testosterone and be told its because I am fat.


    Metformin helps you lose weight as long as you meet a certain set of conditions. For example, if you're type 1 and have good blood sugar control, Metformin can help you lose weight. If you're type 2 and you don't have good blood sugar control, Metformin will not help you lose weight (though it will help lower your blood sugar).
