Our expert says:
You don't mention what kind of diet you are using to lose weight? If you are not using an energy-reduced, low-fat, low-glycaemic index (GI) diet (esp for the diabetes) that has been personally worked out for you by a dietitian, then please consult a clinical dietitian (visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area). It is essential that anyone with diabetes and high cholesterol levels should have an individual diet prescription worked out by a dietitian. So first spend your money on consulting a dietitian before you start using CLA supplements that may or may not work, and may interfere with your medications.
