Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. i am afraid its just in trial basis and not that much helpful. You may use honey a tea spoon ful twice or thrice a day to sweeten your tea etc. reducing caloric intake is mandatory.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
