First get his kidney levels checked,since high BP is an indication of underlying kidney problem.there are medications to control,besides look out for hidden salt in processed,bakery and ready made foods. Take adequate water and ample rest to bring down the BP naturally.

I have thyroid. I feel like I'm losing my memory a lot bcoz of it. I am taking required medication but still I feel very worried about this memory issue. Please suggest me a way out.

Hi, I can understand your worries. Take medicines as directed. Along with this you must do some physical exercise. Brisk walking is the best exercise but put the sport shoes on. Also have some proper healthy diet. To enhance memory 3r's are important i. E. Review, repeat and revise. If you are preparing for some exam then visualise topics. Record your answers and play them again and again. You might discover your own techniques also. Mnemonics may also help.

Hello, if your mother has Type 1 Diabetes then there are good chances of the inheritance, you may catch it in the early age. If your mother is having type 2 Diabetes then there are chances of the inheritance but you can save yourself with the modification of your life style. If you are following a good lifestyle then the chances of getting Diabetes are very lessen.

She needs to start thyroid replacement in the form of oral tablets. If she is already taking them, then her dose has to be up titrated to keep her tsh between 1& 2. Make sure that her bowels are regular & clean. Eat healthy nutritious & simple food. Avoid iodised salt, you can use plain non iodised salt instead.

What if I take thyroid medicine for hypothyroidism after meal, will it still work?
In routine it should be taken on empty stomache for better absorption and effect. It will work if taken after food but its absorption will be erratoc hence its alright if you have taken it after food once in a while.
