Hi,
you may have diabetes and high blood pressure.
you have not mentioned your age and sex and weight so it is difficult to conclude any thing.
Go for blood sugar,lipid profile.
This may be signs of manopausal syndrome if you are female around 50 years,
At this stage I only can say take less fat and carbohydrate in diet.
Avoid fried food and do exercise daily.
Ok and bye.

Hello
Welcome to health care magic.

As you have not mentioned your age and gender my answer might not be complete.

I would suggest you to get an evaluatiion done by a physician for blood pressure and also for hormonal assay. Thyroid functions test and pituitary hormone assay and FSH and LH ( in c/o females).
Disturbances in body fluid levels (blood) could be one reason or your hormonal imbalance could be the other.
Practice mild yoga exercises and also Pranayama for 20 minutes to restore the balance. Also concentrate on good and healthy eating. More of liquids and fruits and nuts. POtassium rich food will give you stregth..

Hi, I am 16, female. I have been very light headed and dizzy the past few days, to the point where things go black and I have to hold on to something or someone so I don t fall flat on my face or bottom. For the prior 2 1/2 months I have had bloating which has gotten worse overtime, but no significant weight gain, not to explain the difference in the size of my lower abdomen, I also eat the same, if not less cause I often feel sick, and extremely tired. Along with sharp shooting pains, and an irregular period. I thought I may be pregnant, so I took two hpt s both negative. So I went to the gynecologist where she had me take another, it came back positive in my urine, the same day no more then an hour later I went for blood work which came back negative. I went for a follow up which was also negative. What is wrong, am I pregnant?

I have been on prempro 0 .3/1.5 for ten years + and never had any problems. I recently have been diagnosed with subclinical Hyperthyroid. I have been working with my Doctor on regulating my dose of tapazole. For the past 10 days I have been having terrible night sweats. I wake drenched. I m irritable and can t sleep. I had an appointment scheduled to see my Doctor to get the latest results of my tsh and t4. I thought for sure that he was going to say I was hyperthyroid and we needed to adjust my dose of tapazole. Instead he said my labs were perfect (right were they should be). So he thought that it could be I needed a little higher dose of prempro. Now I am on 0.4/1.5. I am 65 yrs old. Have you ever increased estrogen dosage in someone my age and why all of a sudden menopausal symptoms after all these years? Thanks

I have severe, constant itdhing of the skin. Have been unable to determine the cause. Nothing has been changed in diet, laundry detergents, etc. The itching seems worse during the night, causing night sweats, dampness of undershirt. Dermatologist has given me AMMONONIUM LACTATE CREAM, 12% to use twice daily and it seems to burn when applied.
