Like "Watch that. Its according to what KIND of meds. you are wanting to come off of. I want to loose weight too and I think I would not have to take so many,but I'm afraid to. I'm not a diabetic but because of what a doctor said, my other Dr. wants me to test once a day for a while. I have had 4 back surgeries and a lot of nerve damage,so I don't know if I could live with the pain without meds. "
