The medication plays an important role is increasing the production of hormones to regulate your metabolism, however, that is often not enough. Diet and exercise can help to improve weight loss results but this can be a difficult process to embark on lone. For sound dietary advice and guidance we recommend that you set up an appointment with a dietitian. The dietitian can do an in-depth analysis of your current intake and by looking at your blood resuts can guide you accordingly. For a dietitian in your area please visit www.adsa.org.za.
