Hi There,
Get your hormones checked out. High thyroid is responsible for increase BMR.
Do de-worming first with ALBANDAZOLE 400mg & then take an iron capsule like FESOVIT daily.
Include Protein in your diet. 3-4 THREPTIN biscuts 3 times a day is recommended.
Thanks & Take care

Hi, I have been experiencing swelling on my left shoulder (in the neck region) and there s what appears to be a swollen gland in my left neck. The headache is mostly on the right side of my head and breathing is sometimes correlated with irregular heartbeats. I am on HBP medications, but the docs have done tests (ultra sound, EGC, xrays, biopsy) for thyroid, but all are negative. What could these symptoms be and what are the possible treatments?

My husband is 3 months post op Thyroid Cancer. Thyroid was removed as well as 6 metastatic nodes. 148 mc Radioactive Iodine was given & I131 scan showed only residual tissue. He currently takes his synthroid 150 mg. But it has been ineffective. 6 weeks ago he had an onset of pain in tailbone. Which has progressed to severe pain & inability to stand or walk correctly. Along with this his RBC Hemocrit & Hemoglobin levels are low, but his Platelet function times are elevated. He has had several CBC W/DIFF labs. His PFT has been up to 206- 247 ranges & his PFT EPI up to 179. They are consistently high with the exception of 2 different times being normal out of 6 draws. His ENT just removed tonsils with bleeding complications. He believes something is wrong & is sending him to Hematology at Vanderbilt. My question is could the bone pain be related to his levels? Lukemia? Or is that not usual or is it two separate issues such as a blood disorder and possibly a discount issue?
