Gastric Band Diet Pill

Gastric Band Diet Pill Review

Fern Britton and Gastric BandingStomach stapling or gastric banding has been featured in recent months with several high profile celebrities posing the “Did they or didn’t they” question.

Possibly the biggest celebrity to be embroiled in media debate was  Fern Britton.

More recently Fern admitted that she did undergo surgery for the fitting of a Gastric band in 2006. At first Fern attributed her weight loss success to a change of diet and cycling.

Later fern admitted in a public statement:

“As interest is so high, I am making public, as a personal choice, that I had a gastric band operation two years ago”

Fern’s surgery did prove a success but plenty of others have not been so fortunate…

Which Diet Pill Was Voted Best in Class 2008 and 2009

Gastric Banding should be as last resort when all attempts of a more natural weight loss process has failed, not only due only to the high cost but also the potential dangers. Anything that involves evasive surgery on a major organ carries risk.

Gastric Banding involves an almost torturous peice of equipment planted internally and adjusted at regular intervals…. yeagh

How Does A Gastric Band Work

Dangers That Could Result Of Gastric Banding Include

  • Infections
  • Internal Bleeding
  • Deep Vein Thrombosis
  • Digestive Disorders

The Gastric Band Diet Pill

The Gastric Band Diet Pill, conversly does not involve surgery – it is a generic term that several manufacturers have “coined” – it is really nothing other than an appetite suppressant

One of the originators to jump onto the  “Gastric Band” concept was Clinico – the product was simply called the Gastric Band Diet Pill

The Gastric Band Diet Pill How Does It Work

The ingredients within the formula are supposed to expand in the stomach creating a smaller capacity – this in turn creates a feeling satiety or fullness.

The Clinico product was the original and still available today, the official website is something of a bizarre one – as other than the usual positive comments from “satisfied” cutsomers there is no reference to how the products works, clinical data or indeed what the product looks like.

We could have ordered one for our own examination and imagery – but quite frankly we couldn’t be bothered. Check it out for yourself

Incedentally, and for the record, Fern Britton as not to our knowledge used a Gastric Band Diet Pill – and we are not suggesting that she has.
Do Gastric Band Pills Really Work

The real lack of any kind of clinical proof raises major doubts. Most of the success stories involving Gastric Band Diet Pills do seem a tad manufacturerd.

Alternative Appetite Suppressants

The most popular, widely discussed and universally disagreed on appetite suppressant is Hoodia Gordonii

HoodiaHoodia has centuries if not milleniums of usage

Hoodia extract products are quite litterally ten a penny and usually eminate from the United States.

Raw powder Hoodia products are few and far between – the UK does, however, have two premier products.

Hydroxycut Banned Diet PillHydroxycut has been a popular inclusion in the over counter diet pill industry for several years and has always had a checkered existence even dating back to its arrival onto the market due to its association with Ephedra.

Hydroxycut is advertised as America’s best selling diet pill – Read the Hydroxycut Review

Now it seems that Hydroxycut (the brand) is recalling over a dozen of its products voluntary but under the authority of the FDA (Food and Drugs Administration – the departmental body that oversees products to ensure that they are fit for human consumption)

What Are The Potential Side Effects And Dangers

Hydroxycut has been the subject of an independent report over the last 5 years in which over two dozen cases of serious liver problems have been documented.

Although the percentage is relatively small in term of the sheer volumes that have been sold – the FDA suggest that consumers should not be subjected to “unnecessary risk”

How To Return A Hydroxycut Product For Refund

Customers are advised to contact the company responsible for selling the product for a full refund  rather than Iovate directly.

Diet Pills Side Effects And Safety

Every year it seems that at least one high profile diet product becomes subject to safety concerns – in almost all cases the products that come under fire are either the chemically produced prescription diet drugs or the over the counter fat burners.

Herbal diet pills - free from side effectsDiet products are considered essential by many – but not at the expense of good health.

The herbal diet pill market continues to go from strength strength as consumers are passing over the more pharmaceutically produced products in favour of the more natural and relatively side effect free herbal counterparts.

Diet Pills On Prescription

Prescription Diet Pills

Prescribed diet drugsIf you are considering using a diet pill there is one very big decision to make.

Should I use a prescribed or prescription diet pill or choose one of the over the counter products via the high street or from the web.

In reality though the decision is out of your hands – a prescribed diet pill does not really involve a choice, it is your GP or doctor that makes the choice if he or she considers your current health issue to be to such an extent that a drug is your best chance of reducing your weight.

A typical benchmark is your BMI (Body Mass Index) if you have a BMI of 30 or above you may stand a chance of being a prescription, any lower and you will have little chance.

Prescribed diet pills are chemically produced substances and classed as drugs – there is nothing natural about prescription diet pills.

If you are offered a prescription you will have to think about the possible side effects – prescribed slimming tablets significantly raise the possibility of causing side effects. Some are just a minor irritant but others can have more severe implications.

Commonly Prescribed Slimming Tablets

Typically there are only a handful of products that your GP is likely to prescribe should you qualify:

Xenical – a high strength fat blocker that uses the active ingredient Orlistat.

Xenical can block around a quarter of dietary fat food consumed but can cause side effects. Xenical is by far the most commonly prescribed slimming drug. More about Xenical

Other slimming drugs that are often prescribed are Reductil, Phentermine, Meridia and Bontril – these are appetite suppressants and dramatically reduce your want or need for food.

Just as with Xenical, prescription appetite suppressants can also cause a wide range of side effects. More about Appetite Suppressants

Can I Buy Prescription Diet Pills

One of the most frequently asked questions is “Can I buy prescription only diet pills over the counter or via the web?” This is where the the concept gets a bit cloudy.

Prescription diet pills should only be available via GP or doctor consultation, however the black market does exist.

It is highly advised to refrain from purcahsing any drug classed weight loss product from the web – at best the chances of recieving the legitimate “ordered” product are extremely low and at worst you will be unsupervised during your administration of the drug into your body.

So, if you are considering the use of a prescription diet pill – your first point of call should be with your GP!

Alternatives To Prescribed Diet Drugs

Non prescription or over the counter diet pills can be obtained without any recommendation or approval from your GP.

Herbal diet pillsOver the counter or OTC diet pills are usually herbal based an present a much lower chance of experiencing a side effect.

The choices available in this market can be overwhelming.
