Thank for asking to HCM
I red your history and I think it is not bad taking protein supplements but I would advise you to concentrate on natural way of protein supplements like high protein diet that will be much helpful to you, you need to take care while taking on counter available product that may some time induce the diarrhea, have nice day.
