    Too many people believe taking an appetite suppressant like phentermine (also known as Adipex-P) is "cheating". They believe that diet and exercise alone is the "right" way to lose weight. Taking phentermine to lose weight is not cheating. Obesity is a medical condition, just like diabetes or cancer. And just like it's not cheating to use insulin to manage diabetes or to use radiation to manage cancer, it is not cheating to take phentermine. This is not a game, this is your health. Overweight and obese individuals are less healthy than people with normal weight. Overweight people are more likely to have health problems like heart disease and diabetes, and tend to die at younger ages. Phentermine can help people who struggle with their ...Read More

    Don't believe in the celebrity sponsored weight loss pills. Don't believe in the celebrity sponsored weight loss programs. And, don't believe that celebrities that are any more able to diet or exercise than you are. The real secret to behind the "celebrity diets" and "celebrity weight loss plans" is Phentermine (also known as Adipex). Phentermine is what allows the vast majority of celebrities to lose weight and keep it off. They are not superhuman, nor do they know any secrets that you do not (besides maybe how great phentermine is). Celebrities uses phentermine because it is safe and effective. It is not "cheating" to use phentermine to use weight. Obesity is a medical condition, just like diabetes, or cancer. It affects some people and not others. Some ...Read More

    Health Circle is a  good old-fashioned family doctor's office, owed and operated by Robert S. Tomchik, M.D., a resident of the city of Miramar.

    Another new study -- unveiled at the annual meeting of the Endocrine Society -- showed that weight loss from dieting alone will improve insulin sensitivity in people with type II diabetes mellitus by 70%. Add exercise to that and you get a 86% insulin improvement. Unfortunately, weight loss from excising alone (no diet) did not improve insulin sensitivity. The study took place for a year, and the subjects that exercised did so for 4 and 1/2 hours a week. This is just another study that has come out that shows that even with type 2 diabetes things are not hopeless. Type II diabetes is one of the only diseases that can be brought under control by diet and exercise!

    (Image ©Pam Roth) A new study -- unveiled at the annual meeting of the Endocrine Society -- showed that half of men, with type 2 diabetes mellitus, showed resistance to aspirin. It turns out the aspirin was not as effective at preventing heart attacks and strokes in half of diabetic men because the diabetes interfered with the anticlotting abilities of aspirin. The solution is simple: increase the levels of aspirin the patient is taking. (The aspirin still works, it just requires more to get the job done). If you or someone you loves has type 2 diabetes it is important to be under the supervision of a medical doctor.

    (Photographer: Anissa Thompson on stock.xchng) Have you ever been diagnosed as having prediabetes? Prediabetes is a condition in which a person has elevated blood sugar levels, but does not yet have type 2 diabetes mellitus. It is a serious condition, and must be taken seriously. Prediabetes is not the same as diabetes; however, if left untreated it will turn into diabetes (if treated it will go away entirely). All diabetics at one point had prediabetes. Unfortunately  once you have diabetes you can never go back to the way things were before. Is that what you really want? Get a blood test as soon as possible. And if you have prediabetes -- or diabetes -- you need to do something about it before it is too ...Read More

    (Image ©everyday-stock235 on deviantART) How do you know if you have Type 2 Diabetes mellitus? Unfortunately, a person can diabetes for years without any symptoms. If you are overweight, or you have a family history of diabetes it is important to go to a family practice doctor or lab at least once a year to get a blood test to test for diabetes. That being said there are signs and symptoms of diabetes that you should be on the watch for. The symptoms of diabetes are: Frequent urination Excessive thirst Increased hunger Abnormal weight loss Blurred vision Dizziness Tiredness   If you or a loved one experiences any or all of these symptoms  then it is important to go see a doctor as soon as possible! Diabetes is completely treatable, but you are going to ...Read More

    (Image ©StockProject1 on deviantART) A new study from the Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale, Arizona (published in the New England Journal of Medicine) has found that one in five patients that successfully treated their type 2 diabetes with gastric bypass surgery experienced a resurgence in their diabetes within five years of the surgery. This number does not include patients that had bariatric surgery which did NOT successfully bring their diabetes under control. It is not immediately clear why so many patients' diabetes returned, but it is currently believed that the longer an individual has diabetes the more likely it is return. This is believed because we know that the longer someone has diabetes the worse it becomes. Many people believe that type 2 diabetes is ...Read More
