ive just been to my pharmacy as i woke up this mornin with THE most horrid cold sores on my lip and alllllll over my chin!! ive had the odd cold sore now and then but never this bad! yuck! hes told me i will have to go to the docs tomorrow and get some anti-biotic cream. the last time i went to see my doc was about the lipotrim diet and he was completely unhelpful and unsupprotive and basically told me all i need to do is eat less and exercise more. WELL YES...if it was that easy the world would all be slim!! so i know he'll tell me to come off the diet cos cold sores are a sign of being run down. wat do i do? do i tell him im on it or just get some cream and leg-it!? :confused::confused:

Aren't doctors funny. Mine was all for it. Now she was realistic and said she wouldn't recommend it for everyone. But for me she weighed it up. I am 4.5 to 5 stone overweight. I have a strong family history of diabetes and heart disease. I have lost 4 stone before doing ww and maintained it for 2 yrs. So LT is a bit harsh but very effective. If you don't do LT right you will pile back on the weight. She said refeeding is the most important part. She asked why not ww again? I told her I had to powerwalk 2 to 4 hours a day to loose weight on it and that frankly I could be bothered doing that again..... she said fair enough and she wouldn't do that either and to knock myself out and do LT but if I did it to stick to it rigidly. Also said they use it on patients with weight issues prior to surgery and it had no long term ill effects.

Sorry rambling. I agree the cold sores are a virus in your system and nothing to do with LT>

I always believed in telling people on a "need to know" basis and I don't think he needs to know. He was so against it in the first place, and this would only make him feel he was right all along when in fact he isn't. My doctor was the one who set up Lipotrim at her surgery for people wanting to lose weight!

thats fantastic, my friends doc has offered her all sorts of things to help her loose weight too. shame mine doesnt lol you'd think these 'medically educated' people would realise its better and probably more cost effective for the NHS to help people sort these things early on! amazing weight loss by the way!! you look fab! x

Just tell the doc about the cold sores and run I suffer from cold sores most of the time but now take the homeopathic remedy nat. mur. 6c you can get it from boots it really shortens the life of the cold sore once its there but if you catch it as its coming it prevents a full outbreak. Also its not just being run down that causes them uv light can too so in the summer i really suffer!!
