Lipotropic injections are a form of treatment that is used to burn fats in the body. The injections contain lipotropic nutrients that are responsible for activating the function of the gallbladder and the liver in decreasing the fat deposits in the body as well as increasing the metabolism of fats. The injections are usually used in dissolving the fats in some of the body areas that exercise is not effective, including the hips, buttocks, necks and inner thighs.
The injection may contain a combination of B6 and B12 or the use of other substances effective in burning fat including inotisol, which facilitates the removal of fat by the liver; methionine, which works like inotisol; and choline which distributes cholesterol in the body, preventing them from being deposited in one part. Some injections may contain a combination of these substances can be used in the injection, which must then be administered for up to two times a week.
The effects of these lipotropic injections include stimulation of the liver and boosting of the body metabolism. One of the main reason it is becoming a popular treatment option is the fact that it is not invasive. As compared to liposuction which is invasive and works by removing fat in the body, this treatment does not invade the body and does not remove fat; instead it helps the body dissolve the fat by increasing the metabolism and break down of fats. The major problem with this form of treatment is that it is temporary. Once the users stop the injection, the effects will go away and the body will gradually return to its original condition.
Apart from that, it is known to come with a number of side effects. Users will experience stomach upsets and urinary problems because the injections place a lot of pressure and strain on the kidneys. Other side effects include depression, and inability to control urine and diarrhea. Since the lipotropic injections alter the function of the system for a short period, the users will be exhausted because the system is not used to working in the conditions and levels presented by the injections. The patients will also experience inconsistent weight loss, with some losing more weight in one session, and less in another.
Besides all these side effects, the patients will also experience pain in other parts of the body. Some of he patients who tried lipotropic injections complained of neck pain and pain in their hands. However it is unclear as to whether the injections caused these pains. Some of the patients have had allergic reactions to these injections, while others have experienced pain in their joints.
With these facts in mind, all people planning to start lipotropic injections are advised to visit a doctor to find out whether they qualify for the treatment. They will also be provided with additional information about the treatment to allow them make the right decision. Once they decide to go ahead with the treatment, the doctors will inform them how to administer the injection. It is important that they read the instructions on how to use and store the injections for effective results and reduction of the side effects.
