Avatar n tn I do admit feeling alot better, my saliva doesnt taste as bitter in the mornings, and my liver is not aching anymore (only if i sit for hrs in front of the pc will it become sore, but it may have to do with posture more than anything else) Also on a good note, my knee seems to be responding to the 1500mg of glucosamine. I feel quite distinctly like my knee is getting stronger and better supported. It feels rigid and not loose as before.
Avatar n tn The only reason I even went to the doctor was that I was dieting and exercising allot daily and not losing anything and that’s when they took blood and that’s what they told me. I also was given that test that they give you the radiation I guess it was pills and you go back a few times through out the day and they put you under a machine to be tested. Again I was told it would go away never given medication.
Avatar f tn I also have diabetes, gluacoma, cataracts, osteoarthritis in most of my joints (can't take meds for the pain because of kidney desease) , a temporal lobe seizure disorder, kidney failure, thirteen surgeries, high blood pressure and cholesterol and yes, an anxiety disorder with panic attacks. But I made it this far and don't plan on giving up. It is tough, but if you get in some good habits like diet and exercise life will probably get better for you.
Avatar n tn ACE inhibitors or ARB in the presence of a normal blood pressure? I understand that there are combinations of ARB and diuretics. Are these ever appropriate for heart failure? I am looking to decrease the financial burden that I have with all the separate medications etc. but want to do it safely etc. Thanks for answering my questions.
Avatar m tn Joint pain about gone, much improved digestion. TSH measured 1.83 in November. Blood pressure under control. I am an avid fitness swimmer and swim seven or eight miles a week. I run too. My latest cholesterol level measures 235. My cardiologist endorses my swimming, did not prescribe meds, and only suggested doubling my supplement of red yeast rice, which I have done. I am bewildered. Why is my cholesterol and LDL increasing? I try eating healthy.
Avatar f tn Propananol is used for stress, anxiety, high blood pressure, tremor, essential tremor, heart palpitations. Levetiracetam is used to treat seizures. If you experienced the chills these may be due to the medication if they began soon after you started taking your medication. Otherwise it is likely that you may have picked up a virus. Simvastatin is well documented for having adverse side effects and can cause damage to nerves. It can also worsen symptoms of dementia and Altzheimers.
Avatar m tn He sent me for blood work (not sure what exactly he had tested, but he stated that he tested everything that would have to do with muscles), and the blood work came back normal. So being more confused, I decided to wait it out alittle longer. After going back for a check up and talking to him further, he told me that this may be something to do with my nerves, and he set me up an appt for a neurologist. I thought that this was a good idea seeing that MS runs in my dad's side of the family.
Avatar f tn With Hashimoto's, the thyroid levels swing back and forth -sometimes too high, creating irritable bowel symptoms and high blood pressure and palpitations, -and sometimes too low, creating leg swelling, joint inflammation, fatigue, poor memory, feeling cold all the time, low blood pressure, menstrual irregularities, etc... If anyone has these symptoms several months after treatment, get your thyroids checked! -Especially the antibodies! (Even if the other lab values are "normal").
Avatar n tn If you are reading this right now and you are feeling horrible, please, I beg you, please go and get a high quality live blood analysis done. Anyways back to the story, my blood had showed everything. You get to see your own blood under the microscope. The alternative medicine doctor layed out everything that was wrong with me, EVERYTHING. My red blood cells were all clumped together, a formation called rouleaux where the red blood cells look like stacks of coins all stuck together.
1331115 tn?1401672466 Krill oil is used for heart disease, high levels of certain blood fats (triglycerides), high cholesterol, high blood pressure, stroke, cancer, osteoarthritis, depression, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), and painful menstrual periods.
Avatar n tn Everyone is different so best to find a doc that will throw in DHEA-S and T to your blood work just to see that you’re not having some strange hyper reaction and getting very high Testosterone levels. These blood tests are very inexpensive. 7. DHEA BEST WITH ACCUPUNCTURE AND BABY ASPIRIN. Because DHEA increases your testosterone your red blood cell count will increase thus actually thickening your blood.
Avatar n tn My husband is a very active 26 year old with very high blood pressure 190/75 - 200/80, high heart rate 92-106, and has PVCs which were caught while he underwent knee surgery to repair his patellar tendons. The doctors told us that it was a cause for concern and he should see an internal medicine doctor. He lifts VERY heavy weights 5 days a week (he competes in strong man competitions), and he plays professional arena football. He does not drink soda or coffee, he does not smoke or drink.
317787 tn?1473362051 The activity helps the blood flow, the water flushes the liver and kidneys and keeps you hydrated which is important also for your skin, blood pressure and muscles. Eating smaller meals does not put the stress on the liver all at one time as a large meal would since your liver works to filter everything you intake into your body at this point and at my point will sap my energy. Not as much if I eat smaller meals.
351404 tn?1299492730 If the kidneys are failing to get rid of all the calcium, it may gather up in the blood, which may cause high blood pressure and some say it may cause calcification in the arteries. That's the reason for an assumed increased risk of heart attacks. Glucosamine is not such a supplement, and honestly I have never heard about it before.
Avatar n tn Either we have some ongoing autoimmune after-effect from the tx, or the HCV itself changed our physiology and nervous systems, OR there may be something to the viral persistence research, which may cause ongoing immune system dysfunction, even though the virus is mostly eradicated in our bodies (as far as can be detected in blood and liver). The skeletal symptoms are very discouraging, and need to be addressed by the medical community. SVR's deserve to be HAPPY SVR's!!!!
Avatar m tn High blood pressure CoQ-10 can lower your blood pressure while boosting your levels of ecSOD, an enzyme thought to protect blood vessels from damage. CoQ-10 may also improve sperm quality, Italian researchers say. Japanese researchers found it can increase fat burning during exercise. Dose: 30 to 200 mg/day Vitamin D Problem: Bone weakness Vitamin D3 is a hormone that helps your bones absorb calcium.
Avatar f tn My story is similar to so many in this group...comforting to know there are others out there experiencing the same issues. I limped along for about 6 months at age 12...chalked up to growing pains until the pain in my left hip became visit to an orthopedist and I was in the hospital the next day in traction diagnosed with a severe slip...11 days of traction to stabilize the leg...then 4 pins. Months of rehab and crutches.
Avatar f tn I have always had slightly low blood pressure, perhaps 100 over 65 or thereabouts, and I have been prone to fainting for years, but I suspect the faintness is getting worse. My total cholesterol used to be ~165, but around the time my joint pain generalized a year ago, it dropped to 141 in about two months and was no higher as of January (I stopped donating blood then, so I do not have more recent numbers).
Avatar f tn Mayo Clinic: Evidence from several studies has suggested that amounts of DHA and EPA in the form of fish or fish oil supplements lowers triglycerides, slows the buildup of atherosclerotic plaques ("hardening of the arteries"), lowers blood pressure slightly, as well as reduces the risk of death, heart attack, dangerous abnormal heart rhythms, and strokes in people with known heart disease. However, high doses may have harmful effects, such as an increased risk of bleeding.
1916673 tn?1420236870 When was his last blood tests undertaken and do you have the results for BUN, creatinine, phosphorus and calcium? And finally, did your vet take your dog's blood pressure? Sorry for so many questions, but just so we have some background info to work on.
1930941 tn?1400111122 had blood work done on Monday and its showed positive Arthritis and high sed rate. I have been clean and sober for 308 days and the pain recently has really been pushing my limits. Maybe I never noticed that last few years cause of the pain meds I took. But I am only 42, and now this crap. My doctor started me on Meloxicam to help remove the swelling in my joints and help with the pain. She knows full well my hx... and I know that Meloxicam is not a narcotic. Does anyone have any thoughts?
1550149 tn?1340004330 However, when the parasympathetic nervous system is active it produces the opposite responses to the sympathetic nervous system, i.e. pulse and blood pressure are normal, blood vessels relax, saliva and mucus production is increased, gastric juice is secreted and motility of the digestive tract is increased, digestion is increased, pupils relax, etc.
Avatar f tn (It is important to note that hemoglobin is the standard measure for iron in the blood, and while hemoglobin levels can diagnose anemia, they do not always correspond with low serum ferritin hair loss. A woman can have plenty of hemoglobin, yet still suffer from low serum ferritin levels.) When it comes to ferritin levels and female hair, ferritin levels are simply more important to the body.
Avatar m tn As I said the lady at doctor not to worry about spoiled blood or anything like that because if there was a problem that laboratory would notify the doctor. What is relevance of diabetes and high blood pressure?
211940 tn?1267884866 I don't want to second guess my doctors, but at the same time, the constant pain, the resultant very high blood pressure (even though I've been on bp medication) which I think comes from the high stress of living with this terrible pain in my upper arm, elbow, and shoulder requires that I search on my own, like everyone here is also doing, for an answer that will work for me. One thing about my doctors, they are very slow to move towards surgery. I used to think that was good.
Avatar n tn My current medication is Arimidex for 5 years, caltrate for my bones and glucosamine for joints. I do not have high blood pressure or high colesterol. I am 61 yrs. and although my Mother didn't have gallstone problems, my Grandmother, Aunt and female cousin all did. I do not see my Oncologist until June for a checkup and hope there is a simple solution to this persistant problem. Please help.
560501 tn?1383616340 Aside from high blood pressure and heart disease, these medications are also used for headache control and anxiety prevention. sildenafil (Viagra), vardenafil (Levitra), and tadalafil (Cialis) dilate blood vessels, and this class of medication may cause orthostatic hypotension.
