Could Your Blood Pressure Medicine Be Causing Your Hair Loss?

Could Your Blood Pressure Medicine Be Causing Your Hair Loss?I am taking Diovan HCT since 4 yrs or more,since then I have great loss of my hair.I am 51 yrs old.Any exp you want to share with me?

no ! actually no -it can not!!

anyway as we know - hair loss can be caused by many different reasons! There are many causes of loss of hair such as stress, poor nutrition ,medications, thyroid dysfunctions, illness, fungal infections, hormonal problems, to mention a few.

year ago my husband suffered very much from dandruff and hair loss too and he started trying everything you can imagine to stop his hair loss. the things that really worked for him was:

1) Vitamin A - an anti-oxidant which promotes healthy production of sebum in the scalp;

2) Vitamin E stimulates circulation. Good blood circulation in the scalp is important in keeping hair follicles productive. The 'B' vitamins contribute to melanin, which gives hair its healthy color and also stimulates blood circulation;

3) massage is also beneficial. Massage stimulates circulation. As already noted, good circulation in the scalp keeps hair follicles active. Experts suggest a few minutes of daily head massage by hand. Circulation through massage may be improved by using a few drops of lavender or bay essential oil in an almond or sesame oil base with massage;

4) Try rubbing your scalp with garlic juice, Onion Juice or Ginger Juice (you can either of one out of three, Do not mix any of two or three);

5) also he used herbal treatment - TrichoZed (do not use Rogaine - it will not work!)

It is a good product that helps prevent hair loss and contains Biotin and the clinically tested ingredients approved by the FDA to help re-grow your hair.! I think it is very important!

It worked and still works for him!

I do not know if any pharmacies carry TrichoZed but I do know that you should purchase it directly from the manufacturer and read more about the product here http://www.trichozed.info/ingredients.php

It enhances hair growth by blocking DHT (Dihydrotestostrone) - a major cause of hair loss!

good luck!

Does blood loss affect how tired you get?

I have lost quite a bit of blood due to being a Haemophiliac and having frequent long nose bleeds, I don't get any blood put back. I feel tired a lot, even with sleep, like falling asleep in lessons. Is this connected? What should I do?
Also any advice on how to stay awake?

Yes that can affect your level of tiredness. You should discuss this with your doctor.  (+ info)

What can I do to alleviate hair loss and thinning due to taking medication for high blood pressure?

I am taking two types of blood pressure tablets which is causing my hair to fall out and it is thinning quite badly. I have been advised to take vitamins? Is this correct? Can anything else help?

Vitamins will help by making your skin and hair stronger. I use Nutrilite Complex for Hair, Skin & Nails. Nutrilite is an organic company with farms all over the place and all neighboring farms are also organic. Amazing vitamins. Go to http://Arcameda.com and search for skin hair. Go to my profile to email me if you need further help. Hope all is well.  (+ info)

How often do people die from surgery by the loss of blood?

My boyfriend's mom is going through surgery tomorrow (may 13th) well... she has bloodclots in both her legs, stomach, and her neck. I guess they have to keep her awake so they know if the blood went into the lungs... I don't want to believe it but yea.... Well were really..... worried about her. How often do people die from surgery by the loss of blood? I'm just hoping the hospital knows what they're doing....

Not very often in the general answer. The more emergent the surgery, and the more trauma there is likely leeds to higher bleeding. So in your case, with a non-traumatic, elective procedure not at all likely to lead to significant bleeding.  (+ info)

How do haemoglobin levels help the diagnosis of anaemia in a patient who has suffered severe blood loss?

I lost a litre and a half of blood in the week and had blood taken today to check my haemoglobin levels. I thought that in bleeding I would lose all blood components rather than just haemoglobin and that my blood volume would go down rather than just my haemoglobin levels?

How does blood loss affect the brain?

This is with the assumption that the brain itself sustained no damage. In other words it's like blood being drained or a drop in pressure.
Edit: Blood Pressure

how does blood loss affect the brain?

hmmmmm though it is confusing

generally, if there is a decrease of blood supply in the brain, then you can suffer from cerebrovascular accident or what we call stroke.

blood contains oxygen which is very essential to the brain. if there is decrease in supply of blood in the brain, then there is also no supply of oxygen and nutients to the brain tissue.

loss of oxygen supply will cause tissue death or in medical term is ischemia. ischemia can lead to stroke or eventually comatose.

now i'm not sure what "blood loss" you're talking about. what i've discussed above is blood loss due to plaque in the arteries and veins. plaque is the build up of fats in the vein and arteries that occlude the blood supply.

if you're taliking about blood loss due to accident....
still there is a supply in blood in the brain but minimal, still can provide oxygen to the brain

goodluck  (+ info)

How does blood loss kill someone? I mean, suppose the bleeding stops, they get transfusions, what happens?

I'm not looking for a 7th grade biology answer. If the bleeding is stopped and the blood is replaced, what occurs physiologically that the person never regains consciousness? I understand lack of oxygen can destroy brain tissue, but does this lack of blood flow also cause major organs to shut down? Do they swell, shut down, what?

first of all massive blood loss causes volume depletion, which causes circulatory collapse. This causes organs to fail or shut down. The circulatory system carriers oxygen to the organs as well as waste products and carbon dioxide from the organs, if there isnt enough blood to do the job, then organs become oxygen starved and toxins build up. Oxygen deprivation can occur very quickly. Here again organs deteriorate collapse and fail. People start developing multiple organ failure.

If blood losses are replaced quickly then some of this can be reversed, but many times thats simply not the case. In massive bleeding the brain is deprived of oxygen and it starts dying off or it can swell. Only time can heal it, but sometimes its not a 100% healing to who the person was before. Don't give up hope.  (+ info)

Is blood on your stools common after a large weight loss?

I lost 50 lbs in 5 months, and I've noticed some blood on my stools not all the time, but its been happening, and Sometime it is just this goowy red gross stuff that comes out. What is wrong, is this normal after a weightloss?

Blood is never normal, however talk to your doctor who will ask for a stool sample to test to make sure it is blood (sometimes partially digested red food can add red streaks), and to investigate where it's from. It could be a simple hemorrhoid (which is more likely if it's bright red), or it could be further up (less likely such as liver problems).

While liver problems aren't unheard of for those who've had a weight loss faster than is healthy, 50lbs in 5 months works out to only slightly higher than the maximum 2lbs per week rate they recommend as safe, so it may not be related.  (+ info)

What are the best herbs for high blood pressure, weight loss, and migraines?

I am a 30 year old female. I have had severe migranes in the past, which subsided when I was pregnant with my 3rd child. After she was born, I had high blood pressure and went onto prescription meds. During this time, I still get headaches, probably a side effect, but not migraines. My blood pressure is under control, but I am very sensitive to medicines. My meds are causing me to have a rapid heartbeat. My previous meds caused me to hallucinate and have nightmares and start to sleepwalk. Other meds I have been on caused me to have insomnia. I am so tired of being under a doctor's care because it costs so much and the meds they give me always have a side effect and cause more problems. So I am looking for an herb that can help me with my high blood pressure, control my migranes, and it couldn't hurt to lose some weight also. I don't know if my problems come from a hormone problem, because it seems like it when my migranes was under control with my pregnancy. Any suggestions?

Cherries are EXTREMELY effective in lowering high blood pressure. If you take ten cherries a day, this will work. However, you cannot take the meds and the cherries, because the cherries are so powerful in doing this. I know several people who have done this with excellent results. In the summer, cherries are easy to find. So stock up. Spread the cherries in a single layer on cookie trays, and put in the freezer. When they are frozen, put them in bags, and you will have cherries for the entire winter. Personally, frozen cherries are my favourite :) I believe cherry juice, if it is pure, will have the same effect.

For weight loss, a mouthful of coconut oil (make sure it is a good quality- if it does not taste/smell like coconut, it is not good enough) will help to balance your metabolism.

Now, for the "cure-all" -Apple cider vinegar will lower your metabolism. Straight apple cider in warm water with honey to sweeten (easier to handle than straight!) will be more effective than the tablets, but the tablets definitely taste better. Three tbsp. a day is a good amount. Taking two tablets a day in addition will not hurt you.

Apple cider vinegar will also lower blood pressure (make sure it is ACV with MOTHER) so please don't try cherries and cider together!

And last but not least, ACV will prevent/remedy migraines!! It is EXCELLENT stuff! Type in "apple cider vinegar remedies" in a search engine and see what you come up with!  (+ info)
