Alli Side Effects And Safety Information - Articles Surfing
As the clamour for Alli continues to grow, there is some concern that many people are forgetting the basic of using any medical treatment, whether prescribed or not. Non more so than the slimming industry is the rush for new products more headstrong, with many customers not even bothering to read the instructions fully. As with ANY type of medical treatment, it is essential that they understand how the product works, any potential side effects and treat the safety advice with the respect it deserves.
To get the best out of any treatment, you need to understand and respect what is happening inside your body. A number of factors need to be considered when buying and using Alli weight loss pills, including :-
' It is vital that you purchase your pills from a well known and trusted stockist, whether this be online or a retail outlet. The slimming industry is riddled with 'get rich quick' schemes, and copy cat medicines which have duped millions of dollars out of unsuspecting customers. As a rule of thumb, if the price looks 'too good to be true' it probably is - do you homework first.
' Dosage. While Alli is a reduced dosage variation of the prescription drug Orlistat, all customers need to respect the dosage advice. Under use of the treatment will show no meaningful effect, although abuse of the dosage recommendation may result in unnecessary increased discomfort.
' Weight loss. As the clamour for the stick like figure continues for many ladies and gentleman around the world (most often in the modelling industry) it is essential that Alli is used for valid weight loss conditions. It is not a way for wafer thin models to stay thin, and should only be taken where weight loss is required.
' While the drug has been tested vigorously, and is backed by the GlaxoSmithkline pharmaceutical giant, there may be situations whereby unrecorded side effects may occur e.g. when other medicine is being taken at the same time, or there is an existing undiagnosed condition. Any reactions or strange side effects should be reported immediately.
The potentially uncomfortable, but not serious side effects which may occur with Alli have been well documented. They relate specifically to the drugs ability to supress the absorption of fatty acids into the body, and the disposal of unused dietary elements. Some users may experience some of the following side effects :-
' Oily stools. As the Alli weight loss pill reduces the production of an enzyme in the intestine, which converts fatty dietary elements into fatty acids, some fat from digested food may not be processed. As a result the body will find a way to release basic fat content from the body, usually excreted naturally. Due to the nature of the left over substances, stools can often appear oily and emit an unfortunate odour.
' Flatulence. Another means by which the body has been known to release unwanted waste is by flatulence. While this is a totally natural and harmless release, it can prove potentially embarrassing and uncomfortable as the customer may not have full control of their bowels at all times.
' Vitamin deficiency. Even though Alli is specifically structured to take out the fatty content of dietary intake, some vitamins may consist of fatty content, which may not be absorbed into the body. It is therefore recommended that while using taking Alli, the user also takes a daily dose of vitamin tablets.
While the oily stools and flatulence are slightly unfortunate side effects, they can be controlled by reducing the dietary fat content to somewhere in the region of 15 grams per meal.
We are currently living in a world where over 65% percent of American adults are either overweight or clinically obese. The problem is now spreading quickly throughout the rest of the world, with both developing and developed countries showing increased obesity problems. Not only is this putting a massive strain on the medical profession, but there are increased health issues including possible heart attacks, diabetes, depression and bone / joint troubles.
While Alli will have an immediate impact on its own, it is strongly advised that people using the medication also reduce the fat content of their diet (thereby reducing the oily stools and flatulence issues), and take in more physical exercise. Not only will these changes impact on the weight and fitness of the person involved, they have been shown to improve their disposition and outlook on life.
