Can these cause any issues with hearing :potassium chloride, disodium phosphate dodecahydrate and sodium dihydrophosphate dihydrate?

Hearing: It is unlikely that any hearing loss is related to the items you list. Hearing tests are essential - I have had them and am wearing hearing aids. Many big stores offer hearing tests at no cost. In my area it is Costco or Sam's Club. There should be something like this all over the USA. ...Read more

Can I take vitamin C pills (always made of sodium/potassium bicarbonate, (sodium bicarbonate) ascorbate, benzoate...) w. pulmonary hypertension requiring low sodium diet?

Can I take vitamin C pills (always made of sodium/potassium bicarbonate, (sodium bicarbonate) ascorbate, benzoate...) w. pulmonary hypertension requiring low sodium diet?

Yes, however...: I strongly advise you take Vitamin C, ideally 1000 mg 2-3x/day, but you should try to find forms without sodium. I don't know what's available in Denmark, but in the US you can find ascorbic acid, or calcium or magnesium ascorbate without sodium. Lypo-spheric Vit. C is esp. well-absorbed,but has 120 mg of sodium, but a low sodium diet usually allows 2000mg/day. Vit. C is best with bioflavonoids. ...Read more

Can you please describe the breakfast menus i can have for low sodium diet?

Ckd patient with hyponatremia. Is it safe to take 650 mg sodium bicarbonate with 40 mg lasix (furosemide) to prevent water retention? Is sodium bicarbonate renoprotective?

Depends: Bicarbonate (sodium bicarbonate (sodium bicarbonate)) is not reno-protective. However, high acid levels in the blood affect heart function, muscle function and kidney function. Reducing the blood acid level (seen by a rising bicarbonate (sodium bicarbonate) level or pH level) improves muscle function including the heart which improves kidney circulation. It also allows the kidneys to better control potassium levels. You can help the process by avoiding sodas! ...Read more

My wife been diagonsed with hypothyroidism.She has been prescribed for sodium thyroxine. We are looking for that medicine from vegetarian source ?

It is vegetarian: All sodium levothyroxine is derived from vegetarian sources so no need to look any further. The only animal-derived thryoid medicines are thyroid glandular extracts like Armour Thyroid and nature-throid. Most who are hypothyroid also benefit from liothyronine, which is also vegetarian- see http://thyroid.About.Com/od/t3treatment/tp/t4-t3-thyroid-treatment.Htm & http://bit.Ly/15k26u8 for more info. ...Read more

Being used to spice rich curried food over the half century of my life now with high BP 140/90 I am advised to cut down on sodium and weight. How?

Only reduce salt if:: While on a average increased sodium increases the risk of heart disease, actually only about 25% of people will have reduced blood pressure by limiting sodium. Try a low-sodium diet for a week- see if it lowers BP ; if it goes up when you eat more salt then keep it low; for most it makes no difference. For weight loss i advise dr. Fuhrman's diet and exercise. See comment for links. ...Read more

Can acesulfame potassium cause diarrheal?

Can acesulfame potassium cause diarrheal?

Sweeter than sugar : Scientists found that acek increased glucose uptake by 20-30 % compared to regular sugar. Although it has been approved by the fda, its safety is still questioned by the center for science in the public interest. Acek's side effects are headaches, liver complications, mental confusion, precancerous, visual impairment, and kidney problems. I would be cautious about using acek sweeteners. ...Read more

No : If you have intestinal parasites you will need a proper diagnosis and the appropriate anti-helminthic (treats worms) or anti parasitic prescribed for you. You need to know exactly what you have.

Thyroxine sodium vs levothyroxine. Which one is more effective?

Thyroxine sodium vs levothyroxine. Which one is more effective?

Stick with one: Thyroxine sodium and levothyroxine are simply different forms of generic "synthroid". Neither is better than the other. Whichever form you take, stick with it. The bioavailability of each thyroid preparation is a little different. If you switch from one form to another, your thyroid numbers may change, and you may start to feel hypo or hyper. Sometimes pharmacists switch you to save $. ...Read more

How long does it take for mylan's generic  of Lexapro (escitalopram) to fully work? I've been on it for 1 month & my anxiety is out of control & sodium makes it wors

3-5 weeks or so: 3-4 weeks is common before ssris show clinical effectiveness. Usually a 2-4 week follow up after initial prescription is planned. If symptoms remain severe by that time, worsen, or are out of control, this should be promptly brought to the attention of the prescribing physician. Combination meds and psyhotherapy by a psychologist is often better than either alone. ...Read more
