Even products that tell you that they are 'healthy' (a description that is most misleading and prohibited with standard foods in SA) and 'natural' may contain herbal or plant extracts that have the same effects and side-effects as pharmaceutical products. If you check the ingredient list on this product you can check if it contains ingredients such as Citrus Aurantium which is a plant form of epinephrine which has the same side-effects as epinephrine found in other appetite suppressants. Click on 'Diet' and 'Diet Detective' and 'Slimming Pill Ingredients, Positive & Negative Effects' to check out what the different ingredients. In your condition with the hypoglycaemia, I would strongly urge you to consult a clinical dietitian (phone (012) 998-5650 (mornings)) to help you sort out your diet - it really is worth it.
