African American Sleevers



Recommended Posts

My PCP's nurse gave me a sample of this powdered Calcium +D called UpCal. She orders it from Amazon.

Calcium citrate +D is taken twice a day two hours a part. The liquid multivitamin I take my B12 with my Biotin. My doctor said to take the multivitamin in the morning. Also drink your Protein Shakes and stay hydrated. Walk walk walk.I have to tell myself lol

Heartburn EVERYTIME I eat!!! Anyone else? It does go away eventually. So tired of it. Any advise?

Prilosec is my friend. Talk to your doc. Heartburn is extremely common with the sleeve.

I don't have that problem yet. Are you eating acidic food or sauce. I think it's best to ask your doctor. I pray you find what it takes to relieve your discomfort. :)

Did u lose a lot of ur curves? Did u skin bounce back? Thanks for any input...have a great day!
