Is ELEOTIN® Safe?
Yes, the safety of ELEOTIN® has been scientifically tested and demonstrated. For example, test rats were given huge dosages (50 times the human dosage) over an extended period of 7 months. There were no adverse side effects or damage to the organs. Furthermore, all the ingredients in ELEOTIN® have been used for several thousands of years in various countries. They are all recorded in pharmacopeias in these countries as safe to use as food. Also, 40,000 customers have used ELEOTIN® with no problems.
This kind of remarkable safety record could be one of the most important distinctions between ELEOTIN® and other diabetic products. ELEOTIN® is basically a food. It is so mild and gentle that one can use large quantities over a long period of time.
From the 40,000 users, only 3 users reported minor discomfort. One user experienced constipation and the other two users experienced diarrhea. An immediate investigation revealed that this was due to the high fiber content in ELEOTIN®. Their dosages were reduced and the problems disappeared.
The safety of ELEOTIN® has been officially proven in various government agencies, such as South Korea, Taiwan, Japan, China, and other countries issued seals of safety for ELEOTIN®. Also, independent safety testing labs confirmed the safety of ELEOTIN®. There are no herbicides, pesticides, or heavy metals. This is the question you need to ask all the producers of herbal products: how do you know that the herbs you are using are free of herbicides, pesticides and toxic heavy metals? Simply claiming that “it's herbal so it's safe” is not true. At Eastwood Bio-Medical Canada Inc. (EBMR), the manufacturers of ELEOTIN®, each batch undergoes rigorous testing.
One may also ask whether ELEOTIN® will interact with other drugs. In general, ELEOTIN® is a gentle and mild herbal combination that does not interact with existing treatments. ELEOTIN® users have used a wide variety of hypoglycaemic drugs and other diabetic drugs. There has never been any interaction complaint. However, although ELEOTIN® does not interact with these diabetic drugs, there is no way to absolutely exclude the possibility of a negative drug reaction.
Imagine that a new drug appears in the future. How can it be guaranteed that ELEOTIN® will not have negative interactions with this new drug that has not yet appeared? What if someone designs a special drug for the sole purpose of having a negative interaction with ELEOTIN®? The most that can be said is that so far, there are no known or reported negative interactions between our present day drugs and ELEOTIN®.
Here is a rule of thumb you can follow: if a drug appears on the market and does not come with any specific warnings against some food, then you may feel relatively safe that there are no interactions between this drug and ELEOTIN®. Remember that ELEOTIN® is basically a food. When some drugs come with warning against some food, then consult a doctor regarding this issue. This is suggested as a hypothetical issue. So far there has not been a single case of adverse interactions between ELEOTIN® and other drugs.
Does ELEOTIN® Have Any Side Effects?
ELEOTIN® has shown no negative side effects other than mild and temporary constipation and diarrhea, which were reported by only 3 users. These situations were due to the user's sensitivity to the high fiber content in ELEOTIN®. This was easily controlled by reducing the quantity consumed or drinking the liquid only.
ELEOTIN® does provide many positive side benefits. In addition to controlling your blood glucose levels, users have reported many other positive benefits. For example, they have indicated the following: improved general health and energy, more peaceful and comfortable sleep, less frequent urination, improved sexual energy, better skin condition, improved vision…etc. Some of these benefits are discussed in more detail later.
According to an Asian medical insight, if one herb combination is beneficial to one health concern, it will also be beneficial to many other related health problems. ELEOTIN® definitely helps with glucose control. It also helps many other health concerns and complications. We know that diabetes is the source of many diseases and hundreds of other complications. If the very source is improved by a certain treatment like ELEOTIN®, it is only natural that ELEOTIN® would benefit its related concerns and bring about many positive side effects, as well as control blood glucose levels.
What Precautions Should I Take?
If you are taking both ELEOTIN® and an oral hypoglycemic agent, please monitor your blood glucose closely. When you begin to experience the beneficial effects of ELEOTIN®, your blood glucose levels will naturally fall. However, the hypoglycemic drugs you are taking also make your glucose levels temporarily fall. These drugs, if taken along with ELEOTIN®, may cause too low blood sugar levels—more commonly known as hypoglycemia. Those individuals who are taking oral hypoglycemic agents should consult with their doctor to properly reduce the dosage of the drug when they begin to experience the effects of ELEOTIN®. But, do not discontinue the drugs without consulting your doctor. Premature reduction or discontinuing your drugs may lead to serious consequences.
Can My Blood Glucose Levels Go Up?
A small number of users found that their blood glucose levels actually went up when they first started taking ELEOTIN®. The reason is simple to explain. These individuals discontinued or adjusted their current methods of glucose control before the full effects of ELEOTIN® started to appear. Remember, it is very important to continue with your current drugs and insulin treatments until the full effects of ELEOTIN® begins and when your doctor advises you to reduce your drug consumption . ELEOTIN®'s effects usually appear slowly, so please be patient.
One thing that should be mentioned is that many diabetics are anxious to experience the benefits of ELEOTIN®. So many people jump to the conclusion that “My diabetes is cured!” at the first sign of improvement. Nothing could be further from the truth. There are going to be many ups and downs. Only after a long period of careful and consistent treatment will you be safe to make such conclusions. You should check your numbers and levels such as Plasma Insulin, C-Peptide, and HbAlc to tell whether your diabetes is really being treated. A lower blood glucose level over a few days is just too unreliable to make the conclusion that you are cured.
There can also be a second reason why sugar levels rise. The increase in some people continued for a few weeks, and then subsided. Afterwards, ELEOTIN® began to work quite well. It is very likely that these people experienced the “homeopathic symptom,” or detoxification effect. The homeopathic symptom occurs when individuals are not accustomed to herbal treatments, which can cause mild headaches and mild dizziness. This homeopathic symptom is a temporary problem as people quickly adjust to all herbal treatments, including ELEOTIN®. This is usually not a big concern. If this happens to you, reduce the dosage by half or even to a quarter of the recommended dosage. Go back to the recommended dosage when these discomforts disappear.
Rarely, but it is also possible that people with serious liver problems and kidney problems may experience a sudden increase of blood glucose when they take ELEOTIN®. These people experience this increased level of blood glucose when they take any herbal product, not only ELEOTIN®. It seems like that the liver of these people tend to release the glucose stored in their liver when stimulated by herbal products they take. It is recommended that these people stay away from any herbal products. But, if they still want to try ELEOTIN®, they can start with 1/8 th of the recommended dosage and gradually increase the dosage as their liver and kidney conditions improve.
Is ELEOTIN® Safe To Use With My Present Oral Drugs Or Insulin?
Yes, in general ELEOTIN® is safe to use in conjunction with oral hypoglycemic drugs. It is always recommended that your doctor be informed and that the customer should monitor his/her blood sugar level closely. With close monitoring, the person will be able to tell when they need to reduce their oral drug consumption. Otherwise, there may be a risk of hypoglycemia (low blood glucose levels) if the patient keeps using the same amount of hypoglycemic medication after ELEOTIN®'s long term benefits become established. Imagine what would happen when a healthy person uses hypoglycemic agents. He will have hypoglycemia. For exactly the same reason, if a person keeps on using the same amount of insulin and other oral hypoglycemic agents even after the body develops its own ability to control blood levels as a result of ELEOTIN®, then for sure, he will have hypoglycemia!
ELEOTIN®'s mild and gentle effects cannot possibly endanger your current glucose management. By improving the health of your pancreas and insulin receptors, ELEOTIN® works in a natural and non-harmful way. Over time with ELEOTIN®, you will require less dependency on insulin and drugs; however, always consult your doctor first before you reduce and discontinue other treatments.
Does ELEOTIN® Interact With Other Foods?
Since everyone reacts differently to food, it would be impossible to conclude that there are no negative interactions. What is known is that the consumption of alcohol diminishes the effectiveness of ELEOTIN® considerably. Please try to abstain or limit your daily alcohol consumption when you are taking ELEOTIN®.
In fact, this is true of any herbal treatment. Alcohol consumed in conjunction with herbs tends to reduce the effectiveness of herbal treatments. Intuitively, alcohol tends to wash out the effects of herbs. Medicinal ingredients of the herbs tend to wash out when a certain amount of alcohol enters the body.
ELEOTIN® is made from 100% all-natural ingredients and it does not interact with other foods that we usually consume daily. ELEOTIN®'s all-natural ingredients are gentle and mild and usually do not affect other foods. With over 40,000 satisfied customers, there have been no complaints on ELEOTIN® interacting with other foods.
Are There Any Restrictions In Diet When A Person Uses ELEOTIN®?
ll customers usually understand the importance of a good healthy diet in their glucose management, so all users should use their common sense and maintain a balanced and healthy diet. However, there are no restrictions on any food item when a person is taking ELEOTIN®. The only restriction is that they minimize or refrain from consuming alcohol. The reason is simple—alcohol diminishes the effectiveness of ELEOTIN®. Remember; do not abuse your body with unhealthy food or alcohol. Create the best environment for your body to heal while taking ELEOTIN®.
