Amenorrhea, Osteoporosis and Anorexia nervosa
Although amenorrhea is something that many women face throughout the year, it is not something that a woman will want to be a permanent occurrence. A woman’s body was designed to have a monthly cycle and it is not healthy for her not to have one long term.
One of the reasons that amenorrhea can be dangerous is because it can create osteoporosis in the woman if it is present for an extended period of time. The reason for this is because amenorrhea causes there to be a drop of estrogen levels. When the body has a prolonged decrease in estrogen levels, osteoporosis may occur.
While amenorrhea may be caused from many things, one item that can create this problem is anorexia nervosa. This eating disorder can have a huge negative impact on a woman’s health in a number of different areas. Not only is the woman not able to get the right amount of nutrients that she needs to be healthy, but it can alter her hormone levels as well.
When these hormone levels are out of balance, amenorrhea becomes common. For women with anorexia nervosa, it is important that they speak with their doctor regarding treatment. This is the best way to correct amenorrhea so that osteoporosis does not surface in their body.

Be careful when and how you use it
I bought into the hype and broke down and tried this product. After all, how can you resist something that claims that the fat is literally taken out of some of the food that you eat! I must say, though, pay attention to the directions on the package. I used it for a few days with none of the negative effects that many people experience. But during those times I ate fairly healthy meals and nothing too fatty. Then I went out with friends and didn't think about the fact I had taken these pills. I ate chicken wings, blue cheese and french fries. And spent most of the night and a good portion of the next day with several occasions of racing to the bathroom because of digestive issues. I suppose it shows that it does remove "stuff" from your diet because I sometimes have issues going at all and with using this product I went several times a day. But is it worth the risk? Besides, I have no idea if taking the pill was making a difference in my weight loss or if I was having success because I was being more careful in my food choices leading to lower calorie intake.
Weight Loss through Fear of Embarrassment
Was excited to try Alli, heard such great things. Did not see anything for the first couple days I took this. Then came the HORRIBLE side effects. Oily, greasy residue in your underwear and the toilet, and the smell. Oh my gosh. It was awful. Talk about eating healthy - for fear of what this will do to you. Didn't even finish the first bottle it was so terrible.
