Doctor visit today

Wednesday, May 08, 2013

First my physical was canceled due to a an emergency, then they called back and were able to squeeze me in. Was seeing a new Dr, since my old one went to a different clinic farther away.
Was a different physical, getting to know each other and such. She had me do alot of moving checking my balance and physical strength. Did some blood work too and will go back in two weeks for the results. Bummer is that means another office call.

We discussed my weight, since I have gained some back since last years check up. She did offer a new diet pill that allows you to lose weight by not allowing the body to absorb the calories eaten. Supposed to not have any side effects,, but is very expensive.

Not sure that is a route I want to go. anyone esle heard of these kind of pills?

    Let us know what you learn about the pill. It's always hard to change MDs.

    Haven't heard of that one. I try and stay away from pills unless they are truly necessary. Personally, I would just increase the exercise and decrease the food.

    I have only heard of the ones that prevent the digestion of all the fat you eat. However, if you actually eat too much fat, it causes rather embarassing side effects. Did you get the name of the drug?

    I have never heard of this kinda pill But would't that be harmful to your body not getting any calories that your body needs to perform each day. My suggest is just keep eating healthy and stay positive in the long hull you will loss the weight and feel great. I Have tried so many diet pills out there and nothing has worked for me, I have found eating right, doing what you can to workout , the support , and being positive is the best way to go. So Never give up even when you feel like it . emoticon
