Why is my hubby having to take tablets for both high and low pressure? I need some advice.

Why is my hubby having to take tablets for both high and low pressure? I need some advice.

This is weird: "Low blood pressure" in someone who's out walking around in the ordinary world isn't a bona fide illness. This may be a case of a common truism -- seeing too many physicians. You can't make his health care decisions for him, but you can develop your own discernment for charlatanism. ...Read more

Hi,my husband takes his high pressure pill in the morning,what should he do if he forgot then remembered late in the afternoon?Thx.

Hi,my husband takes his high pressure pill in the morning,what should he do if he forgot then remembered late in the afternoon?Thx.

OK to take it: If he takes one pill a day, he should take it in the afternoon. If he forgets for a whole day, he should just resume his regular medicine regimen in the morning. Blood pressure management is a long-term affair and is unlikely to be seriously compromised by missing a single day. ...Read more

Whas the best OTC fertility pill with a high conception rate?

Whas the best OTC fertility pill with a high conception rate?

There is none: No fertility pills are available over the counter in the us. There is a good reason for this. Any drug that stimulates ovulation (as fertility drugs do) will increase the risk of multiple pregnancy and may raise the potential risk of ovarian cancer so it is best to use under a doctor's care. ...Read more

My iron level is 24 can I increase it with iron tablets and loads of high iron foods in a month of time ?

My iron level is 24 can I increase it with iron tablets and loads of high iron foods in a month of time ?

YES: but to raise the iron in the RED BLOOD CELLS and make more red cells if you are "anemic" requires a high BINDING CAPACITY for IRON and enough FERRITIN to CARRY the iron to the cells!
Its a PART of the story and dietary intake will increase the ironlevel as long as its being absorbed!

Hope this info is useful!

My body temperature rises very high for no apparent reason . I has only happened twice about 8 weeks apart?

My body temperature  rises very high for no apparent reason .  I has only happened twice about 8 weeks apart?

High temp: Not sure what you mean by "high" but if over 101 f and it occurs again you need to be evaluated for a possible occult (hidden) infectious process. It is preferable to have blood tests (including possible blood cultures) at the time your fever is spiking, so if it happens again, be seen immediately (same day). ...Read more

My granulecyte percentage is high and rising over 6 months. From 66% on the first CBC to 74% on the last one I got recently. Should I worry?

My granulecyte percentage is high and rising over 6 months. From 66% on the first CBC to 74% on the last one I got recently. Should I worry?

Not necessarily: There is an art to reading CBC's. First, take a look at the total WBC count. If under 10-12k (depending on the lab reference range) I wouldn't worry. We generally don't monitor serial granulocyte percentage, as it fluctuates daily in response to infections the body is fighting. ...Read more

My older sister has t2dm, is taking oral hypoglycemics, but is still finding her bgls are rising as high as 15 fasting. Should she be taking insulin?

My older sister has t2dm, is taking oral hypoglycemics, but is still finding her bgls are rising as high as 15 fasting. Should she be taking insulin?

Quite possibly: 15 (270 mg/dl) is quite high and she needs something changed, whethe it be higher doses of her diabetes pills, adding more pills, calibrating her blood sugar meter, adding insulin, she needs the sugars to improve. She should also meetwith a dietician to improve her diet, bc drastic bg changes can come from cutting down on foods that sneak sugar into your day (syrups, candy, bread, soda, ketchup). ...Read more

Recently placed on ramped up dose of bystolic (nebivolol) to 20mg. No problems with 5 or 10mg. Hanover feeling with 20mg pill. Is that a high dosage?

Recently placed on ramped up dose of bystolic (nebivolol) to 20mg. No problems with 5 or 10mg. Hanover feeling with 20mg pill. Is that a high dosage?

Incomplete data...: Yes, of course. But, it would be wise to re-ask this question with more facts such as what is your blood pressure now; what was it before? How soon or fast did the ramp up to the 20 mg dose happen. But, without your current blood pressure and a bit of history this question is not easy to give a full answer. ...Read more

Is there a type of diabetes that you only go high if you eat? Very sensitive to insulin. Normal weight.Not eat bs never rises over 128. Do eat bs 250

Not really: In patients with pre-diabetes, they can present with high sugars after eating (> 140), normal fasting sugars (<100).

But patients with diabetes (fasting number >126, after eating >200 usually have both types of sugars elevated, but can a a tendency to much greater sugars after eating than fasting sugars.

How quickly can your hemoglobin rise in high altitude?

How quickly can your hemoglobin rise in high altitude?

Hemoglobin at altitu: Weeks to months depending on the altitude. The immediate response to altitudes over 10, 000 feet is an increase in the depth and rate of breathing to help maintain the level of oxygen in the blood. As the length of exposure persists, the kidneys will start producing a hormone to increase the rate of production of red blood cells to pick up and carry more of the available oxygen at that altitude. ...Read more

Is 50mg of hydroxyzine Pam considered a high dose for one pill?

Is 50mg of hydroxyzine Pam considered a high dose for one pill?

Depends: The basic principle in medicine is to give the lowest dose needed to achieve the objective. Some people can take 100mg of hydroxyzine without problem , others just 10 mg would knock them out. Usually the drowsiness effects tend to decline with time. I prefer to start patient on 10 mg first then work it up over a week until the desired effect has been reached without causing side effects . ...Read more

Could i get pregnant for missing one pill on a high fertility day?

Could i get pregnant for missing one pill on a high fertility day?

Possible...: A woman can get pregnant if her body somehow managed to ovulate because she missed a pill, but it is not very likely. One cannot tell for sure! so, a urine pregnancy can be done after the next period, or 2-3 weeks after having sex. At those times, the test is quite accurate (if done correctly and read correctly). ...Read more
