Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (1 year ago):

  • No matter how much I exercise or try to eat the right food I can't lose weight. I have gained 42 pounds in the last 3 years. And just recently I've noticed swelling in my hands. I have hemochromotosis and my trigylcerides are extremely high. My liver has cysts on it and I am afraid that some of these drugs are causing me to have more bad symptoms, then good. I also have fibromyalgia, osteoarthiris, carpal tunnel, reynaud's.
