Can liposuction reverse diabetes and lower blood pressure.?

Weight loss is key: Liposuction per se is not a weight loss procedure. It is well documented that adequate weight loss, when you're overweight, can result in a reversal of diabetes and can lower blood pressure. I see many of my patients who are on my HCG true diet lose 20-30 pounds of fat and significantly decrease their meds for these problems. Some don't even need the meds after the weight loss. ...Read more

My reverse t3, serum is 35ng/dl. It seems really high for my age (35/m), with normal blood pressure.  Any suggestions on how to lower rt3?

Not a valid test: You may be reading too much nonsense on the internet. Reverse t3 has little to no value in the diagnosis, treatment, or monitoring of thyroid disorders. It has very limited value as a diagnostic test in people with "sick euthyroid" syndrome. Any symptoms you have are not related to this level. ...Read more

330 lb male with blood pressure of 150/80, is there a way to lower this? And is this very high? Hes also 6'1

BP too high: You may have hypertension (htn). You should get several BP readings at different times of day. The best way to get BP down is weight loss using exercise and diet. Medications are probably also needed. 330 lbs is considered morbidly obese and increases your risk of htn, heart disease, diabetes, and stroke. You should speak to your primary care doctor about it as soon as possible. ...Read more

How can I lower blood pressure?

How can I lower blood pressure?

Depends: Hi. If you're obese or overweight, weight loss may lower BP. Regular exercise may help lower BP. Weight loss is easier said than done, however. The most direct and proven means is to take BP meds ("antihypertensives"). Personally, I would never put off treating high BP with the hope that weight loss or exercise might control it. High BP injures and kills. Ask your doc. Good luck! ...Read more
