I am the Dearborn Mi. ophthalmologist who has now been taking Belviq since 6/12 13.At that time I weighed 242 lbs. had diabetes a heart stent hypertension and back problems. Today I weigh 214 lbs. and am off insulin.I was taking about 100 units a day! I am still taking two oral hypoglycemic. My weight loss is 28 lbs.My waist size has shrunk by 5 in.My sugars are under great control. I m 68 yrs. old and now have a chance to live another ten to 20 yr. before I probably would have been dead in 5yrs. or less. I intend to loose another 40 lb. to reach my ideal weight of about 175.lbs. (I am 6 ft. tall) I feel so much better it is a miracle. I have put at least 12 people on BELVIQ AS THEY SEE THE PROGRESS I have made and want to do the same. I am on a no carb. diet eating meat(fish meat and chicken) vegies and salads). I have not increased my exercising.I am eating half of what I used to and am not hungry. Absolutely no snacks.Belviq has exceeded my expectations. It is working as well as bariatric surgery without the danger or expense.My blue cross is paying for it (100 dollar co-pay for 3 mos. supply.I will report again in 2 weeks.

doctors 14 weeks experience with Belviq

am the Dearborn ophthalmologist who started Belviq on June 7.My initial weight was 242lbs. My weight now is 207lbs. I am 68 y.o and have had diabetes for over ten years, hypertension, and a cardiac stent. My Hba1c was 6.5. Since I've been on Belviq. and a reduced calorie protein diet, I have lost 35 pounds, my current Hba1c is 5.5. I previously took over 100 units of insulin daily, I have discontinued insulin and continue to check my sugar five times a day, which has never been under such good control. My present Hba1c is normal for a non-diabetic. My endocrinologist said he has never seen anything like this and jokingly asked it I really did have diabetes in the first place. He is putting patients on Belviq now. I have recommended Belviq to five people and all of them have lost twenty to thirty pounds in two months or less. My blood pressure is now 120/70 and was initially 140/90. Belviq is a MIRACLE. All the "short bashers" can go to hell with all their misinformation. The facts are that the drug works, it is a lifesaver. I will probably live and additional ten to twenty years because of it. I have no side effects. Even my golf game has improved. As a religious man, this is God's truth. Thank God for Belviq. I will report again in two to three weeks. Less
patton you owe it to your physician to post his name address and phone number so people in your area know a trend setting doc. Great docs need their practices to grow and laggards need to be retired or be poor docs.
