How To Raise Norepinephrine Levels
Sugar: Hi. Are you talking about diabetes and treating hypoglycemia? I hate to guess. Insulin therapy is the BIG risk for hypoglycemia. But as you would imagine (and your doctor should have told you), treat low sugar with sugar. If you're very low but conscious, use liquid sugar (e.g., juice, sugar soda). If you're unconscious, someone can give you glucagon or call paramedics. Good luck and be safe! ...Read more
Think yours are low?: This is about the nervous system. What makes you think your "levels" are low? Neurotransmitters don't HAVE "levels". They don't just float around or circulate in blood. They're made in the terminal boutons of neurons, released into the synaptic cleft, & immediately either recycled & replaced or taken back up. Neurochemistry isn't just a New Age fad. REAL knowledge is power. Go arm yourself. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Naturally means?: Do you mean WITHOUT use of typical pharmacological agents which are prescribed in the U.S. and elsewhere? Tyrosine is an amino acid which is a building block for dopamine. When taken in greater quantities than we get from ingestion dopamine levels will rise in the brain. However, at such necessarily high levels, significant side effects can occur. Needs to be monitored closely by physician. ...Read more
You can take it but.: Dhea can be bought in certain stores selling vitamins and nutritional supplements and it will raise your blood level. Problem is very few studies show any measurably benefit from doing so, except perhaps in people whose adrenals have stopped working. Lots of hype about various benefits (energy, immune system) but no hard data to show it helps. ...Read more
Speed metabolism.: Weight training builds lean muscle which is metabolically active around the clock, day and night. While some studies suggest that cardiovascular exercise may stimulate the metabolism for as much as 48 hours after the exercise, it may be much less time. Both are best in combination. As well, eating a small healthy meal of lean protein and complex carbs every 2-3 hours speeds the metabolism. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Exercise & lose fat: First, let's clear a common misconception that's used to separate you from your money. There is no dietary supplement that will naturally & safely increase testosterone. In other words, there are no testosterone boosters, at least not in the States. Maybe in India but not here. Instead, get rid of fat that converts T into female hormone.

Relax: Although there are rare tumors of the adrenal gland that make too much adrenaline, for most people it is stress/anxiety. Try to find a way to de-stress. Behavior therapy may help. Beta blocker drugs will block the effects of adrenaline and may be very helpful. Talk to you doctor about them. ...Read more
May not need to: Lab testing isn't "one size fits all." a lab may list 1.2 as the "upper limit of the reference range", but a muscular patient can and should have a higher level. When i was lifting daily, my creatinine stayed at 1.6, and an elite bodybuilder's is likely to 2.0 or so. The level itself doesn't make you sick; it's just one piece of information to tell whether there's kidney disease. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Then discuss with your Dr. ...Read more
Some simple steps: A fueling strategy to optimize running requires focusing on 3 parts. Prior to the run, make sure you are eating enough carbs by including complex carbs in your diet. During a run of longer than an hour, consider refueling with gels, sports drink, or any other source of simple sugar (jelly beans). Within 30 min of finishing, refuel. Chocolate milk is the right mix of carb and protein. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
