Mood changes are more likely due to other hormone levels, and interactions are complex. ...Read more

Need help with diet for diverticulitis and gallstones?

For diverticulitis, the blockage of diverticular sac openings is the root cause for inflammation. Avoiding constipation by eating more fiber and drinking more water, and to exercise more frequently. ...Read more

Can beta blockers be taken to help relieve symptoms of grave's eye disease , with levothyroxine, and after total thyroidectomy?

No: Beta blockers are useful for the tachycardia that is present with the hyperthyroidism from graves. Total thyroidectomy will cure the hyperthyroidism but since the antibodies against the orbital tissues are still produced there is no guarantee that the eye symptoms will stabilize or improve.
