My pcp informed me i had slight elevation of vitamin d3. I do not take vitamin D3 supplements. What would cause that and is it dangerous?

My pcp informed me i had slight elevation of vitamin d3.  I do not take vitamin D3 supplements.  What would cause that and is it dangerous?

Vitamin D: Vitamin d intake is the most common, but it is uncommon unless someone has taken in a significantly excessive dose of vitamin d for an extended length of time. It is also rarely seen in some uncommon malignancies, rare genetic metabolic abnormalities and hyperparathyroidism. A mild elevation may just signify sunlight exposure, and it probably insignificant. Check w/your doctor. ...Read more

I take benazripril for high blood pressure makes me urinate more always has thats why i believe  my potassium id low?

Potassium level: Benazipril (b) is a drug of the ace-inhibitor class and by its self is not known to lower potassium (k) levels. Unless b is combined with a diuretic, it has no action to stimulate a person to have increased urination. If your k level is low, ask your doctor to check your blood pressure, magnesium level and why you have this increased urine production. It may not be due to b. ...Read more

If I take coricidin cough and cold and I don't have high blood pressure, will it effect me adversely (I'm taking it for the right reason, I'm sick)?

If I take coricidin cough and cold and I don't have high blood pressure,  will it effect me adversely (I'm taking it for the right reason, I'm sick)?

Safe medication: For a young healthy person a short course of over the counter medication is unlikely to be harmful. The other side of that, though, is that most OTC meds aren't very effective. For a serious cough a prescription medication might be best, but if the cough is minor you're better off to try home remedies.

Does mthfr cause miscarriage? I know i need to increase my folic acid but  some dr's prescribe aspirin for pregnancy. My dr says no

Likely, no: New data has shown that a diagnosis of mthfr mutation is not a likely culprit for miscarriage. New recommendations from the american college of ob/gyn state: screening homocysteine levels or (mthfr) is not recommended, b/c mthfr has not been associated with poor pregnancy outcomes. Folic acid is always a good idea in pregnancy. A baby Aspirin for women with unexplained miscarriages, also good. ...Read more

Need some help taking zoloft (sertraline). Realy worried it will make me dizzy. 25 mg is what I am prescribed. Does eveyone get dizzy and how bad is it?

Need some help taking zoloft (sertraline). Realy worried it will make me dizzy. 25 mg is what I am prescribed. Does eveyone get dizzy and how bad is it?

No, not everyone: No, not everyone gets dizzy with zoloft (sertraline) -- and 25 mg is a very low dose. You can make yourself believe it will harm you, though. This is known as the "nocebo" effect -- similar to "placebo" but with a negative, rather than a positive, expectation. If you're really worried, you could consider taking your first dose in the doctor's waiting room. Then if you become concerned, help will be there. ...Read more

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

Although the headaches may not be completely eliminated, they should go down in intensity and how often you have them. You need to see a doct who is interested in treating and preventing headaches. This could be a family doctor or internist, pain specialist or a neurologist. ...Read more

My TSH level is17.2, Is this a dangerous level? I have tried using Tirosint but feel that it makes me dizzy. Could I avoid taking medication?

My TSH level is17.2, Is this a dangerous level? I have tried using Tirosint but feel that it makes me dizzy. Could I avoid taking medication?

Potentially,consider: A TSH of 17.2 is diagnostic of hypothyroidism, but you should check levels of Free T3 (liothyronine) to see if you have adequate levels of thyroid hormone. Even if you do, it tends to worsen. This might respond to taking iodine but that usually is not enough. You could start with a lower dose of Tirosint, but most who try natural thyroid feel better than with synthetic. Also test for thyroiditis. See comment: ...Read more
