did a quick search this morning and it seems that Lipolean is one of the products (like Xenical) that causes the fat you eat to not be absorbed but eliminated when you go to the bathroom.If you have D you definitely do not want to take it as it would make it much worse. I'm not sure what it would do to a C person. But one thing to keep in mind with these fat trappers is that the long term effects are not known yet. I'm not sure if vitamins or minerals are lost at the same time the way they are with Olestra. A dietician would have to answer that. If they are you would have to make sure to take vitamin and mineral supplements.So check with Martha McKittrick. Another well know dietician, Elizabeth Somer, answers questions on webmd.com but not in the same format on a bulletin board. However, I just discovered she has her own website, ElizabethSomer.com. I wasn't very impressed with the website setup itself, but she is very good and you can ask her questions on it. I have 4 of her books now and have learned so much (I think). That's not saying I remember it, though!
On Elizabeth's website the first time you visit it is a bit slow because informational blocks come up first. After that, though, when you go to the site they don't come up.Good luck, again.
