Weight Control

Question: (Human)
I have Type II diabetes and have purchased Carboprin to see if it will help in lowering my blood sugars effectively without having to resort to medications, which may have harmful side effects. The only concern that I have is that I am currently on a medication called Novo Gabapentin for chronic pain that I suffer in my feet. Would you be able to let me know if any of the ingredients in Carboprin can be harmful when taken in conjunction with the Gabapentin? I have heard that there are certain herbals that do not interact well with certain medications. I have tried to talk to my doctor about my concerns and he is basically just telling me that there are a lot of people claiming that they can help people with diabetes, but most of it is just a lot of bunk. He just wants me to start taking Avandia and forget about using anything natural to help myself. I disagree with him and it is not the first time I tried to find a natural alternative to a medication that he has wanted to prescribe. Any information you could give me would be greatly appreciated.

We understand the difficulty in trying to get most physicians to think in terms of prevention and cure rather than simply addressing symptoms. They are not trained in this area and thus will tend to advise only on what they know. Our Resource Directory may be helpful to you (Wysong Directory of Alternative Resources). The more knowledge you can gain, the better.

We do not have information available regarding prescription drug interactions. Don't hesitate to contact the drug manufacturer for their opinion on possible interactions.

Please consider the advice in our weight loss program since it would benefit type II diabetic conditions.

We would also recommend the Origins Un-Cereal products and the Protein Key Shakes. These products do not contain refined sugars and are highly nutritious as a snack or meal replacement.
