I would like to ask anyone out there who knows or has tried taking weight loss aids and is diabetic. Is this something that can be done? After years of tightly controlling my BS, well I fell off the wagon so nowI have been losing weight and getting my blood sugar down. I know that I will eventually plateau unless I increase my current excersize routine, but can you take anything to supress your appetite or any diet pills? Any information would be appreciated.

You might consider Victoza by Novo Nordisk. It is a diabetic medication that is known to help in weight reduction. I have used it but did not continue because I am not really overweight and it is a little pricey. It does require a prescription from you doctor so he/she would know if it is appropriate for you.

My doctor allowed me to take the stimulant that is currently available as prescription. If you have decent blood pressure and no other issues, you may be able to take it. I did not experience mood swings or other symptoms. So I think it may be something individual (like anything else) Check with your doctor.

From what I remember, diet pills might raise your blood pressure. It also caused my heart to race and I bounced off the walls, mood swings were common.
I would check with your doctor. They should know what the pro's and cons of diet pills are.

If you fined one that works let us know I have spent a lot of money and never had one that worked EVER .
But you go for it if you like.
One would think that if there was one that would work my doc would have me on it asap yours would too I think.
