What is Diax Od used for? - Online Doctor Chats
Please proceed with your query
i hv been prescribed diax od for 3 months
can you tell me the name of the drug it contains?
am looking it up online, but this would be fater
alpha lipoic acid
Are you pregnant?
why were you prescribed this?
i am over wt
by 20 kgs
so along with protein pwdr
the doc suggested to take this for 3 months
and precisely that was my question to u ?
well, no i understand the purpose of the diax
and what is that
see, when trying to lose weight, sometimes we have difficulty actually mobilizing the fat cells if we are deficient in lipoic acid and cgromium
So, you would end up exercising and dieting to no avail and would not lose much weight
it has been shown that supplementing lipoic acid in small amounts will help with the weight loss
its been 15 days
that i hv taken it but dont see results
you will probably need more time
weight loss is a slow process
anything else that i need to add to it
diet hasnt helped either
What kind of exercise are you doing?
6 kms walk 3 times a week
thats the XXXXXXX i hv been doing
hv long working hours
n a highly stressful job
i see, it would pay much better dividends if you were to try and increase the cardio that you are doing
instead of walking, try swimming, or an elliptical
you may need to increase the intensity of the workout
other than that
and also remember, 15 days is not that much time, you can only lose 2-5 kgs in a months with maximum intensity dieting and exercise
i travel a lot and work odd hours so most of the excercise is on the weekend
You may want to go to a good gym and speak to an instructor, they could fashion a good workout for you
thats where i hv a challange
i dont hv a fixed routine
I unerstand its difficult. Maybe you can speak to the instructor about finding cardio exercises that you can do, no matter where you are
Like jogging in place, or running, etc
honestly i am confused bcoz my nutritinist says u need strength training
Strength training will build muscle and make it easier for you to burn calories in the long run
think of it like this, cardio will help you lose the weigh, strength training will help keep it off
both are important
tnx for your help
Do you have any more queries?
is there ny other medication that can help reduce weight faster
u there ??
