Losartan and weight loss

Common Questions and Answers about Losartan and weight loss


Avatar f tn I don't know this doctor very well as mine has retired, and he is aware of my medical history obviously, and my struggle with weight loss as well as my attempt to keep my diet as healthy as I can (despite occasionally messing up from time to time due to lethargy, stress from work and genuine hunger...) Can I trust that my blood pressure won't skyrocket???
Avatar m tn Although I have only been on Victoza for 2 weeks, I personally did much better with the weight loss when I was on Byetta. Good luck to you and your weight loss, I know first hand how hard it can be.
Avatar f tn Barb, would you mind sharing what you eat on a typical day? I am so inspired by your weight loss story, and dieting (counting calories) hasn't been working for me at all so I'm thinking it's the type of foods I am eating. (my thryoid levels are not optimized yet but am working with the naturopath on that). Thanks!

Avatar n tn Even if the effect from any one medication is small, the effect can be enhanced when multiple medications are given, particularly if there are other problems such as weight loss as well. Examples of medications that may contribute to anemia include ACE inhibitors such as lisinopril; ACE receptor blockers such as losartan; antibiotics such as sulfa-trimethoprim; and certain anticonvulsants.
Avatar m tn Planned to work Up for Sketetal Myopathy as well..!! Pls. get back.
Avatar n tn I experience anywhere from 100 to 800 PVC's each day and can get pretty depressed some days. Since 2004 I've been on numerous prescribed medicines, stopped coffee, cigarettes and alcohol and sex (just kidding), all in an effort to reduce or remove the symptoms of PVC's. I don't want to get my hopes up but 2 days ago I went to the chemist(drug store) and bought some vitamins from the health section. One of the supplements I choose was coenzyme q10 (See http://en.wikipedia.
Avatar n tn I have talked to the neurosurgeon who did the surgery and he shrugged his shoulders and said I have no idea and sent me back to my neurologist. He gave me a series of injections in both shoulders and the pain stopped for a couple days but then came right back. Then we tried massage therapy, it helps but only for a short period.Then I have to go back to the massage therapist again and again, my insurance will not pay for that.
Avatar n tn Obviously good blood supply brings blood and warmth to all parts of our body Additionally the loss of body fat (weight loss) can make us easy to chill. Loss of appetite causes decreased nutrition. Eating well balanced meals helps generates heat through the digestive process as the cells assimilation the nutrients into them. There are medical conditions that can cause us to feel colder then others around us. Hypothyroidism is one that can cause you to feel cold.
Avatar m tn I switched to a low fat diet with lots of fruit and whole grains and I lost about 3 lbs lbs woop de do. Keep trying different things. Weight loss will definitely help and diet and excercise will as well but most people can't be consistent with diet and excercise.
Avatar m tn The two of you could discuss whether a RHC would be indicated and the pros/cons. But I would focus on BP control, weight loss, stopping any other bad habits (smoking, alcohol), possibly being tested for sleep apnea and getting this treated if you have it, etc. Long and short of it is that you do not have the type of PH that requires PH-specific drugs. You may have mild PH as a consequence of other things---and the treatment of that is the "other thing". Good luck. Dr.
Avatar n tn At any exertion, sweat would pour from his head and the rest of his body and he would continue sweating for a long time afterwards. Heartburn and acid reflux, especially at night. Flushing in the face, without apparent reason. His doctor diagnosed him with depression. Against his grain, he agreed to try different anti-depressants but things kept getting worse. Apart from all of the other symptoms, he started having some episodes that his doctor described as panic attacks.
Avatar m tn I also take Diuretics and I add a Banana to my breakfast to make up for the Potassium loss. Caffeine and extra adrenalin (emotions and anxiety) can trigger these miss beats/extra beats and you should try to avoid that.
Avatar n tn thank you do you think I have to blame FT4 for my abnormal weight loss and increased heart rate during nights? I also take metformin (for blood sugar), losartan (for HBP),osteoporosis meds,atrovastadin (for clostrol).
Avatar m tn insufficient erection or erection which I cannot maintain for some time. My wife gets irritated due to thjis reason and I also feel a loss of self esteem and reduced pleasure. I consulted a specialist who advised me to relax as, according to him, my problem is mainly stress related. He appears to be right since when I take a break from work or proceed on a vacation, there is a marked improvement. I have almost perfect body weight and exercise regularly. I also do not drink or smoke.
Avatar n tn 3) The most important things you can do without medication are tobacco abstinence and weight loss. Both can have a dramatic effect. Outside of these the caffeine abstinence and stress relaxation techniques can also have some impact. Those are all a good place to start.
Avatar n tn Blood Sugar under control. Chest X Ray OK No Weight loss. Normal appetite. No blood in sputum. Thyroid Function tests T3,T4 & TSH. Urea, Creatinine, & Lipid Profile OK. TLC/DLC – Normal. Absolute Esnophilia Count (AEC) -450 CT Scan chest – Normal. Chest Physician Confirmed Lungs clear Echo – No major abnormality I daily walk for 30 mts slowly without any problems. Please advise what are the possible causes for this cough?
Avatar n tn I wonder if my high blood sugars contributed to the PVC's as well? I've lost about 13 lbs. so far, and I wonder how much the weight loss has helped, too. Since starting the diet and carefully using food as my "medicine" to control my blood glucose, I haven't had any PVC's at all (in about 5 - 6 weeks). With the calcium/magnesium, I would get MAYBE one or two pvc's per week as opposed to every third or fourth beat for days on end. Has anyone else had this happen?
544292 tn?1268886268 Welcome Tram Warriors! Part 60. Wow. Over the years of recovery and reading about others, seeing others recover the main thing I have learned is that everyone's life is better without being a slave to Tramadol. You might be stuck and scared right now, but you can make the decision to get yourself off the hamster wheel of Tramadol dependency and even addiction. You don't have to live that way. There's lots of people here to help.
20202111 tn?1492379275 I'm not a doctor and I can't tell you what to do, so I'm not saying you should/shouldn't stop the thyroid med, but if it were me, I'd try to take steps to get all the other issues under control - blood sugar, blood pressure, cholesterol, weight - and see if that helps. Diet and exercise is very important and no matter how much thyroid medication you take, if you have other things wrong, you aren't going to get well. We still have that cortisol issue to work on...
Avatar f tn I am hypo and I was given .50 Levothyroxine and I started filling shaky and light headed, I had trouble breathing and felt pressure in my chest, stomach cramps, headaches, and high blood pressure so my doctor told me to stop taking them and referred me to an endo who put me on .
Avatar f tn However for the past 2 weeks it started to happen more and more until finally it became a constant flutter in my throat. I went to hospital and had blood tests, chast x ray and ecg all came back fine and they said it could be down to reflux. Tried to get over Christmas as best as I could but its gradually getting stronger in my throat so I saw an out of hours doctor who said my Thyroid gland looks a bit swollen so I have to see my GP today to see if he will send me for tests.

646318 tn?1261185094 Let's use these drugs when needed, but not as a first line defense (let's try diet/weight loss and exercise first) or because we think that someone *may* develop IR on treatment when in fact they are not.

Avatar f tn Im posting this in hopes that somebody out there is going through the same thing as me and has found a "cure"! I get heart palpitations and episodes of afib from stomach and intestinal gas. Been to the doc, heart is fine, blood work is fine, blah blah blah. Been reading FAR too many posts where Dr's do NOT believe that there is a connection between stomach issues and heart rhythm and Im starting to get VERY frustrated.
192055 tn?1263559137 Are you taking Liothyronine? Does it help your lethargy and weight control?? Sorry I realise this is off the topic but i just wanted to know. On the topic I am in a position to try some different ideas so if I come up with anything I will deffinately post it.
Avatar n tn Today my husband and I went to see his PCP and she said to stick to whole grains, vegetables, fruits and limited protein (the nephrologist said he could have up to 10 oz a day for his weight). I also asked her about the potassium and phosphorous and she said for right now his levels are fine and he doesn't have to "limit" them. I'll still keep an eye out for how much he eats.
Avatar f tn My new cardiologist told me to increase my activity and lose weight. I am doing both, and although my arteries are 'clear', my chest pain is increasing in frequency and intensity. In addition, I am experiencing decreasing concentration, forgetfulness, and increasing anxiety about my own health. I'm on a variety of medications. They took me off the beta-blocker because it made me dangerously bradycardic. I'm having another sleep study this Sunday (checking for mixed sleep apnea).
