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

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

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

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

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
