Diet Pills The Side Effects

By: Terry Sandhu

Diet pills or often perceived to be a quick solution to a long term problem. A quick solution often covers up deeper underlying problems, without really addressing the real issues that are involved. Diet pills can fall into this category. Taking diet pills will cover up the fact that you may be living an unhealthy lifestyle, and just taking pills to hide that lifestyle is not a long term solution. Apart from this diet pills can often have severe side effects, which may go far beyond the problems that you may have with weight issues.

Diet pills do have a place in losing weight, but they should only be taken by people who are seriously overweight, and when their health is in more danger because of excessive weight compared to the potential side effects of diet pills. People who are not clinically obese, but are around thirty or forty pounds over weight should avoid diet pills and instead turn towards changing to a healthier diet and a good exercise program. Taking diet pills could potentially give you more health problems than the excessive weight that you may carry does.

Some of the side effects can include:

Hair loss, high blood pressure, heart attack, strokes, headaches, insomnia, dehydration, dizziness, hyperactivity, and a multitude of digestive problems.

As you can see, a quick fix can often have major draw backs. One of the biggest issues of diet pills is that they are not legally required to be regulated as many are classed as supplements. The only time a regulatory body will intervene is when any particular pill has proved to be dangerous and has had regular negative effects on the people that have used them. However that will not really help the people that suffered form the side effects from the diet pill or died from it.

Another problem is that the people who market diet pills often make ludicrous claims and promises in their sales literature. Often these claims regardless how fantastic, are going to appeal to people who desperately want to lose weight. The warnings about side effects have to be displayed, but are often hidden somewhere on the packaging or on a leaflet in very small writing. This is done because manufactures want people's main focus to be on the possible benefits, and not on the potentially dangerous side effects.

If you carefully read all the writing on the way diet pills are marketed, you will actually see that the manufactures don't actually promise or guarantee any results. The way the words are written make you believe that they are promising results. You will find statements along the lines of 'may help you lose weight' or 'could help you to reduce weight'. What this means is that their product may help you lose weight or it may not. 'May' and 'could' do not really mean anything. This way the manufactures of diet pills are absolved of any responsibility whether their products will work or not.

If you do decide to take diet pills, think very carefully of the side effects, because many of them can be dangerous and some may even cost you your life. Always consult a medical practitioner before taking any diet pills. Learn if the benefits you may receive will be more advantageous than the possible side effects you may encounter. The question you need to ask yourself is that will it be worth taking diet pills and potentially endangering your health further, or is it going to be healthier and more effective to lose weight through exercising and a good diet, which have no dangerous side effects. It's your decision!
