Now Slim

Now Slim are a UK based diet supplement that claims to be 40% more effective than its competitors, although makes no effort to explain where this claim comes from. We examine whether Now Slim works and look at possible side-effects. Now Slim Pros Available from a range of well-known high street retailers Now Slim Cons Company refuses to disclose the full quantities of ingredients No clinical trials to back up the claims made High price tag Now Slim Review Claimed weight loss benefits Now Slim is a range of products with the most popular and longest running products being Now Slim Day and Now Slim Night tablets. They have been joined by Now Slim Sweeteners, Now Slim Hunger Strips and Now Slim 24/7 which includes all four of the aforementioned products in one box. The company has also recently released Now Slim Power plus vibration plates; this is a vibrating machine that claims to give you an hours’ worth of exercise in only 10 minutes. Learn more by reading our article on The Company Behind Now Slim. How Now Slim Works This review will focus on the two most popular Now Slim products, Now Slim Day and Now Slim Night. Unsurprisingly, the day and night products target those specific times of the day. The day product comes with 160 Now Slim tablets, with two capsules to be taken twice a day. The night tablets only feature 80 capsules but are to be taken only before going to bed. Now Slim targets weight loss through boosting your metabolism. This means that food you eat is converted into energy quicker than usual, which allows you to focus on getting rid of the stored fat within your body without the risk of adding to it. The energy boost might encourage you to do more exercise too. This is the theory, however it is not clear whether either product really has any major eff Continue reading >>

We recommend you get access to your GP electronic health records if you have not already done so to check what type of diabetes mellitus you have - your medical record should clearly state this. Please send an email to [email protected] to find out more or leave a message for Katie Rumney to call you back on 0161-367-7910 Why are we raising home testing of blood glucose now? Many patients are test their blood glucose without really knowing how to do it or why or even how often they should do it. We wish to highlight the reasons for testing blood glucose to ensure you are testing appropriately and also to bring to your attention two devices that have been recommended for testing blood glucose by NHS Tameside & Glossop and Haughton Thornley Medical Centres. When should patients test their blood glucose? The Map of Medicine clearly describes the indications for testing blood glucose for Type 1 diabetic patients (insulin dependent diabetes mellitus) and Type 2 diabetic patients (non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus or Insulin treated type 2 diabetes patients).

Diabetes Blood Glucose Monitor Only £4 In Store @asda (usually Around £10)

Diabetes Blood Glucose Monitor Only £4 In Store @asda (usually Around £10)

samoyed;4669190 Its not a plaything dude, they are available on prescription if you are … How much is a prescription these days? £4 is cheaper than a prescription I'm sure :thinking: I see you're replying to the tool but still this shows how much of a deal it is that you can get it cheaper than from the NHS. 4 quid might seem like a really good deal but Blood Glucose monitors only come with a few testing strips. If you want more you have to buy them or get them on prescription. A box of test strips is 15 quid ish depending on the machine.... and a prescription is £7.10 Remember if you're diabetic and you need to test then you can get the Blood Glucose Monitors for free from you doctor and you'll get a prescription for the test strips. Not all diabetics need to test, if you're diabetic but you don't need to test then your doctor or nurse will tell you.... (e.g. if you're diet controlled) Also lots of pharmacies will give you a blood glucose test for free so if you're worried it's worth going down to a local pharmacy to get yourself checked out. trust me! i'm a pharmacist! sometimes people are stubborn and say there is nothing wrong, I dont need to go to the docs..... How many people do they say have got diabeties, but are not diagnosed.... For £4 if you are concerned for someone...its a no brainer. IMHO. Doctors advice can be a bit off sometimes. (diabetic for 17 years) More to the point though this is a great deal. Sorry but i couldn't myself with this quote, "the sweetest people in the world are diabetics" Continue reading >>

Ketosis – Are You “looking For Purple”?

Ketosis – Are You “looking For Purple”?

Two questions I’m asked a great deal are about ketosis. “What colour am I aiming at on the “Ketostix (TM)” testing strips? Where do I get them?” My answers are always this: “Benign Dietary Ketosis” as a concept was championed by Dr Robert Atkins when he published the first version of his plan in 1972. He mentions that you should measure your excreted ketones via urinalysis and be looking for a purple result. Where to get Ketone Urinalysis sticks Either, via Amazon (pretty much the easiest option) or at the Pharmacy counter of any dispensing Chemist. They are a “P” grade medicine, so you have to ask for them. However, being in ketosis is like being pregnant. You either are, or you aren’t. The colour is irrelevant, any shade of Pink/Purple will do. In fact, purple may well be a sign that you are pushing too hard. You may be eating too few vegetable based carbs. Purple means that you are dumping a great deal of excess ketones into urine, rather than burning them. If you are “purple” but find that you are not dropping fat, your body may well be fighting against your mind’s want to drop your excess fat. Your body wants to preserve its homoeostasis and keep you alive. What are the signs of Ketosis? If you are following Dr Atkins’ plan and so testing regularly, the preferable colour really is a pale pink. This is an indicator that your body is in its optimum fat burning zone, using everything that you are producing and not dumping any excess. Once you are effectively burning body fat, most people can tell they are “in ketosis” by the slightly metallic taste in their mouths. Some people say that their body odour changes (Not a BO odour, just personal smell) to incorporate metallic tinges. Others report that their urine has a more noticeable “he Continue reading >>

Are Keto Sticks Fat Burning Indicators Or A Fat Waste Of Money?

Are Keto Sticks Fat Burning Indicators Or A Fat Waste Of Money?

You will no doubt have come across keto sticks if you’ve ever done a ketogenic diet planor read any message boards about low carb diets. Whilst a lot of dieters use them, they do not always understand how to read the results and adjust their diet to optimise it. This article aims to resolve this and clear up the facts about keto strips. Ketogenic diets force your body to adapt to using fat for fuel when glucose (from carbs) is not present, this is known as ketosis Ketones are a by-product of ketosis and keto sticks (also known as ketostix or ketosticks) are urine testing strips which detect the presence of ketones in the blood. They are small plastic strips with an absorbent pad on the end, you urinate on the absorbent pad and it changes colour to reflect the amount of ketones present in your urine. They are also sometimes referred to as keto diastix, don’t get confused as these are two different products. Keto diastix are usually used by Type I diabetics to detect the presence of glucose, they are of no use to keto dieters. Where Can I Purchase Keto Sticks? Amazon is probably your most convenient option – the best I have found online is this: Nurse Hatty Ketone Strips. Diabetics use keto strips also, so sometimes they are with other diabetic products or behind the counter. Ask a shop assistant for help if required. Keto strips are cheap to purchase, no more that a few pounds and a pot will last you a long while. The pot contains a number of strips and a colour chart on the side which ranges from clear to pink to purple. Once you have urinated on the stick, you wait 10-15 seconds and then match the colour of the stick to the chart. Clear: No/trace ketones in your urine Pink: Some ketones in your urine Purple: High level of ketones in your urine Quite simply, No. P Continue reading >>

Buffalo Balls (no, Not Really) Low Carb And Gluten Free

Buffalo Balls (no, Not Really) Low Carb And Gluten Free

Superbowl is coming up in a few days and like most of you, we’re having a few friends over. In the past, classic buffalo wings were a must at our parties, and they are still pretty awesome. But from a logistics point of view, they can be annoying – especially with a large crowd. Chicken wings are incredibly messy for one thing, and it’s not easy to eat them gracefully. So if you are an unattached woman looking for the man of her dreams, gnawing and slavering over a saucy piece of chicken like a dog on a bone may not be the best game plan. And so there you are, staring longingly at them, but not partaking so you can look all graceful and demure and stuff. But after a few drinks the three grapes you ate aren’t cutting it, so you cave and resort to sneaking them into the bathroom, where you can attack them in private and hide the bones in your purse. Or if you are desperate and really, really brave, flushing them down the toilet and praying it doesn’t clog. Or maybe that’s just me… Anyhoo, all you single ladies rejoice! Behold the buffalo ball – all of the flavors of a buffalo wing, in a low carb, easy to eat package. And they are super good! I may never make wings again! Ok not really, but I’ll make them when nobody else is coming over, so I can ravage every last piece of meat off of them like a good wing deserves, without a mortified audience looking on in horror! I just giggled out loud picturing that…heh heh…. Anyway, these buffalo chicken meatballs have all the flavor of your favorite classic buffalo wings, with none of the bones, skin or mess. If you’re like Mr. Hungry, this is a plus, because he doesn’t like the skin and hates eating chicken meat off of the bone! If you’re a crockpot lover, you can totally form these and place them in the Continue reading >>

Food Choices Finding appropriate low carb wet foods in the UK can be a challenge. As in most countries around the world, the formulas for tinned foods change without notice. Most of the well known supermarket brands such as Felix or Whiskas contain vegetables or vegetable proteins and/or sugars, as do many of the supermarket store brands. This makes them unsuitable for FD cats even though initial carb calculations may seem to be safe. For this reason many in the UK buy food online because there is greater access to more variety of low carb wet foods. Please visit the Food Info section of the TR College of Knowledge (COK) to help assist you when calculating carbs based on dry matter for wet foods appropriate for diabetic cats. The downloadable Carb Calculation tool is available here. Wet cat food with a lower than 10% carbohydrate count based on dry matter is best for cats with FD and is required when practicing TR. Avoid foods containing grains such as rice, wheat and corn, glutens, sugars and syrups, gravies, supermeat varieties and those containing vegetables and fruits. Foods containing soy and/or ‘vegetable protein extract’ can significantly raise the BG even if the percentage of calories from carbohydrates is below 10%. These species inappropriate ingredients can render the liver useless to do its job of protecting the brain in the event of low BG, potentially resulting in clinical hypo and are not at all recommended for cats when starting TR. Your vet may have prescribed Purina DM (Diabetes Management) prescription food. While lower in carbs than most tinned cat foods, the dry matter carb content is 18% and is still considered to be very high for an FD cat on TR. Before switching a cat already receiving insulin to an all wet low carb diet, it is very important Continue reading >>

Ketone Testing

Ketone Testing

Tweet Ketone testing is a key part of type 1 diabetes management as it helps to prevent a dangerous short term complication, ketoacidosis, from occurring. If you have type 1 diabetes, it is recommended that you have ketone testing supplies on your prescription. Ketone testing may also be useful in people with other types of diabetes that are dependent upon insulin. Why test for ketones? Ketones are produced by the body as an alternative source of energy to sugar. The body produces ketones by breaking down fats, this process is known as ketosis. Ketones may be produced as part of weight loss, however, it’s important for people with diabetes on insulin to note that ketones can be produced when the body has insufficient insulin. When the body has too little insulin, it means that cells of the body cannot take in enough sugar from the blood. To compensate for this, the body will start to break down fat to provide ketones. However, if a high level of ketones is produced, this can cause the blood to become acidic which can lead to illness and even potential danger to organs if not treated in time. This state is referred to as diabetic ketoacidosis. Where can I get ketone testing kits and sensors? The most accurate way of testing for ketones is to use a meter that measures blood ketone levels. The following blood glucose meters are able to test blood ketone levels in addition to blood glucose levels: Abbott - FreeStyle Optium Neo Menarini - GlucoMen LX Plus If you take insulin, you should be able to get these prescribed by your GP. You can also test urine for ketone levels, however, urine ketone testing is not as accurate as blood ketone testing as the levels of ketones in the urine will usually only reflect a level of up to a few hours previously. When to test for ketones? Continue reading >>
