Can herbalife be taken while being on medicine for thyroid, BP and diagnosed aortic regurgitation?

Hi I have hypothyroidism, on 125mcg levothyroxine, I also have high bp, on 100mg losarten and 10mg bisoprolol and have just found out I have aortic regurgitation. I am overweight and have been unable to lose weight, would herbalife be safe for me to take?

Hello

Thanks for the query

There is no known reaction between these medications. You can take them together. However I would like to add here that you are on high dose of Losartan, you will have to check potassium levels once in 2 weeks.

I hope I was of help

I was diagnosed with aortic regurgitation 15 yrs ago. I go for echo cardiograms once a year. The cardiologist I see repeatedly says I will most likely never need surgery. Everything I have been reading basically says this will progress. When first diagnosed I was told it s extremely mild. Now I m being told it s mild/moderate. My question is - will I eventually need surgery? I am 50 yrs old now
