It depends.: It is the increase in oxidative stress, from medical or mental stress that produces free radicals that make us age.

My mother fells energyless all the time she is hypothyroidism patient having body weight 67 kg. What will be the correct medicine dose for her, her age?

My mother fells energyless all the time she is hypothyroidism patient having body weight 67 kg. What will be the correct medicine dose for her, her age?

Highly variable: The optimal dose is not based on weight nor age but how hypothyroid she is. Most doctors only prescribe levothyroxine (synthetic T4) but research (and clinical experience) shows most feel much better by adding T3 (liothyronine) or changing to natural thyroid. Also many doctors do not give adequate doses. See

My age is 41 my LDL is 217 but I don't want to take medicine at any cost what are other ways to reduce ldl?

Be healthy: I have to say that statins are your best option for success. However, since you say no to meds, then I will suggest other options. Lose significant weight (if you are overweight), eat a legitimate heart healthy diet (there is a lot written on this), and exercise, exercise, exercise. Those steps will decrease the LDL your body makes and increase the HDL that you make. Good luck. ...Read more
