Customer Question

Does Lipozene 1500mg effect people with Diabetes and a pacemaker?

Expert:  Dr Khan replied 2 years ago.

Hello and Welcome to JA
Thank you very much for your question and coming to this service

The main ingredient is glucomannan, a natural fiber supplement that is clinically proven to lower cholesterol and decrease body weight

There's green tea, which increases energy while suppressing appetite; Kola-nut, a natural energy-boosting herb; and vitamins B6 and B12, which speed up metabolism.......among other ingredients though in small amounts

Glucomannan may be useful as a therapeutic adjunct for type 2 diabetes. It has been shown to improve the lipid profile but has been shown to interfere with blood sugar control

It has not been studied in patients with pacemaker so unpredictable effects may occur

Always make sure that your primary physician is in focus while you take any natural or herb supplement in addition to your usual regimen as unpredictable side effects may occur becuase these drugs are not routinely tested with prescription drugs

Let me know if any further query

Best Regards

It says on the label to take with 8 Oz of water if you fail to do thisyour throat could swell and block your esophagus and may cause choking. Should I be consurned? I willdrink a lot of water because I do any way.
Expert:  Dr Khan replied 2 years ago.

That will be helpful to take it with plenty of fluids

Let me please emphasize again that such supplements do interact with diabetes control as i mentioned and also interact with many sugar lowering drugs so a chance that they can bring your sugar down to dangerous levels even without warning

So please keep your physician informed about new addition and any such use should be supervised

Take very good care

Expert:  Dr Khan replied 2 years ago.

Do you have any previous illness or taking any drug at present?

May I know your exact worries? Which aspect concerns you the most?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

have no illnesses just the liquids and the choking sacred me. that's all peobably stupid.

Expert:  Dr Khan replied 2 years ago.

By taking plenty of fluids i am sure that this should not be a major concern...so just stay calm

Without any other medical illness or medicines it is reported safe otherwise in literature
