29837 tn?1414538248 In the US, dieticians are often recommended for trying to figure out certain health issues pertaining to reactions to supplements and/or lack of sufficient vitamins that may cause a situation such as yours. When I had my hip replaced in 2007, a dietician was sent to my hospital room, who bombarded me with questions trying to figure out why my platelets were so low. The hospital was ready to put a pint of blood in me.
179332 tn?1273250959 Yes, u are not alone! Seeing so many posts about reactions to blood pressure meds. And meds. To lower cholesterol, I really believe they should develope something different! I am very angry, my Doctor acts like it's just me! I ve been sick for over 5 mos.! I ve always been pretty healthy! Wouldn't I think a Doctor would take that into consideration! So, I'm done, I'm not going to spend the rest of my life being sick! Am researching other alternatives!
Avatar m tn You are presently taking prenatal vitamins so you do not need additional vitamin/mineral supplementation. To help lower your blood pressure is to lower your salt (sodium) intake. To keep your sodium levels down, avoid high sodium foods, prepared/prepackaged foods, cold cuts, cured meats, and take away the ‘salt shaker’. Adding extra herbs and garlic/spices (without salt) to your food will add more flavor and you will not miss the salt. Hope this helped you.

4939681 tn?1361302899 I would lay down, the nurse would take my blood pressure it would be normal. I stood up and my blood pressure dropped dangerously low, about 30 points less which caused me to pass out or become very dizzy in less than a minute. Not sure if yours is like that but I would say Lyme does have an effect on BP because of all the people I know that have that. In my non medical opinion.
Avatar n tn He works with chemicals so he really has to be on the ball. He was taking ginseng to stay awake, and his blood pressure with was on the slightly high side started to spike up. We talked to our pharmacist who said that ginseng increases blood pressure, revs up your body. My husband stopped taking it, and within a week or so, went downward again. Consult your Dr. before taking any herbal supplements, that are not as safe as one would believe. Good Luck and Happy Thanksgiving.
Avatar m tn Taking too much vitamins may lead to intoxication and cancer ....
Avatar n tn Imagine someone like that taking licorice extract thinking it's going to be helping them, only to raise their blood pressure to potentially lethal levels. Do you know what high blood pressure can do to a person? I do, I know several people that have had strokes as a result of high blood pressure. Strokes can kill, strokes can maim and leave you permanently debilitated. And sometimes high blood pressure can even trigger an aneurysm, which is usually outright fatal.
Avatar m tn He told me not to take calcium since these two work against each other. When I google vitamins for cramps, websites say to take calcium. I don't drink much milk. I don't want to get calories from liquids (I almost exclusively drink water). Does calcium help with cramps? 2. A physical therapist told me to take Tonic Water with Quinine. Anyone try this? One bottle before bed time. 3. Should I take potassium? I eat a banana/day. 4. As stated I eat very healthy. Had a physical fine.
Avatar n tn So I went to the health food store to ask a friend of mine what would be something that I can take to fill into my diet. She recomended I try a green drink. I was like yuck. She told me about earth's promise which taste like fruit. Here is a little blurb about the drink. Earth's Promise has 20 vitamin-rich ingredients - one glass provides the essential nutrients needed to enhance energy, support digestion and boost the immune system. High in potent antioxidants including green tea.
Avatar f tn So will magnesium make low blood pressure lower if it reduces high blood pressure?
Avatar n tn I am borderline hypertensive and take 20mg of lisinopril a day. I have attempted to determine if there is a particular type of food, or food additive that might trigger the symptoms, and have noticed the symptoms always occur when I eat peanut butter or the snack crackers that are sold in vending machines, and will occassionally happen when I eat homemade macroni and cheese. Other that these foods, I can find no relationships.
Avatar f tn Vitamin D supplements reduce blood levels of C-reactive protein, or CRP, an indicator of inflammation that is linked to cardiovascular disease. But supplements help only up to a point. In a study of more than 15,000 adults ages 18 to 85, researchers at Johns Hopkins University found that after blood levels exceeded 21 nanograms per milliliter — the lower end of what is usually considered normal — any additional vitamin D led to an increase in CRP.
Avatar m tn 5 to see if it can control my blood pressure. Last year I had chronic prostatitis but it seemd to go away and has no come back, well the same pain and the doctor is going to have some test done to figure that out too. I was diagnosed with high blood pressure in 2004. Can someone give me some advice or help, i have constant headaches that are not very painful, but just the need picking is so worrysome because I always think that I am getting a stroke. My cholesterol is fine.
1097839 tn?1344583542 I'm well aware of the origins of the RDA and don't use them as my guide to how much of differenct nutrients to take. I'm glad the Usana supplements are working for you. I know my friend at work also likes them a lot. I will investigate the PDR and Lyle MacWilliams Guide, thanks for the tips. I find the £1m guarantee re.
Avatar m tn And also is there a way to counter this naturally with vitamins rather then the blood pressure meds? I don't want to take those blood pressure medications because those mess up the liver..
Avatar n tn Do you take any vitamins,or other supplements? In our busy days we often forget to look after ourselves and provide our bodies with the essentials it needs to keep the thyroid healthy. My partner is in Turkey at the moment and he said it has been stinking hot! LOL!
Avatar f tn Still no answers as to what this pain is sitting on my right side that is a constant dull pain all day long every day that becomes angry when I walk, sit and drive. The pain gets in to my lower back. They put me on Provera. 3 to 4 weeks in to it now and the constant dull pain is still there and now I have breast tenderness. Now there is this sort of pinching feeling, sharp pain that appears when I cough or sneeze or do some sort of sudden movement. I'm 40 years old. My tubes are tied.
Avatar n tn First things first. If you haven't already, you need to find a liver doctor who specializes in treating hepatitis c. They can usually be found in the larger, city teaching hospitals. Unless you have someone local, it's worth the trip at least for an initial consultation. You doctor will explain treatment options and answer questions. You can also run by him any and all medications you're taking or want to take. But generally, yes, avoid alcohol if you're a stage 4.
Avatar n tn I will be finished with my Augmentin today and it seemed to get better for a day or so but now I am urinating every hour as before and still have pains in my lower back. I have yet another urinalysis on Saturday to see if the blood is gone. If it is not, any suggestions on what it may be? I do drink alot of water, close to a gallon a day, but that does not explain the blood in my urine. The blood is not visible to me, only in the urinalysis.

Avatar n tn In the last few days I have noticed the pain starting to radiate to my lower left abdomin. I dont seem to have any lumps on my testicles. Does anyone know what this could be? Thanks.
Avatar f tn Also I was wondering if maybe I should not be sleeping on that side or applying pressure to it? Will I be able to go for a facial or will that further bruise the nerves? Any advise would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Avatar n tn I am about 1 and 1/2 month with high BG, as insulin or food tries to lower BG, blood pressure tends to increase. I ate at 11am, hence no humalog is present in my body,Now time is 3-30pm, sugar is 10.5, I ate a chicken leg, I am feeling shaky, blood pressure increased, and sugar went down to 9. Due to lack of food, sugar was going up, liver was dumping, chicken leg helped to stop dumping. As soon as sugar will be stabilized, blood pressure will be stabilized.
