  • High potassium blood levels caused by vitamin d3
    I have Parkinson's and fell and broke my hip. Otherwise I have good health. While checking my blood, the doctor was extremely concerned that my potassium levels were above 5.0 and wanted to take rather drastic measures to correct it. Since I have no other symptoms, I was resistant. In the meantime, I thought I saw a study that said vitamin D supplementation could cause a false positive reading on potassium. I was taking 5000 units of D a day for over a year. I stopped taking it while I was in the hospital and the blood level potassium began to normalize.

    I need the vitamin D and need to find out if it is truly detrimental or an illusion .
  • Gnc hair skin and nails gave me a severe rash and hives
    I've been using GNC Hair Skin and Nails tablets for about a month and I burst out in a severe rash and hives on my hands, arms and neck. My hair didn't grow much of a difference and my nails, though they were stronger,kept breaking after a few weeks.I discontinued taking the tablets about a week now but the rash has not improved much. I will advise others to go natural and forget these tablets that offers you miracle results because there is always a catch to it.
  • Hydrochlorothiazide and frontal fibrosing alopecia
    I took Hydrochlorothiazide for almost a year to prevent kidney stone formation. Ten months later, I went to see a Dermatologist because I was having problems with my skin. I had lost all of my eyebrow hair and most of the hair around my facial hairline and my hair was thinning on the rest of my scalp. I was diagnosed with Frontal Fibrosing Alopecia and was informed that Hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) can cause this disorder, which is a variant of lichen planopilaris. This disorder causes permanent hair loss due to scarring of the hair follicles all around my facial hairline. The hair I have lost will never grow back. I was advised to stop taking HCTZ.
  • Ampyra vs kidney stones
    Started taking Ampyra Sept 1, 2014.
    Had a severe kidney stone in mid-September.
    Another two weeks ago.
    Another today.
    No family history or them. I also have no history of them.
    Drink fresh squeezed lemon daily and lots of water.
    Take Ibuprofen when it starts up.

    Ampyra is helping with leg strength a tiny bit.
    My MS is 40 years old so it is acting like it is old!

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 weeks ago):

  • I have a history of pituitary brain tumors (one as an infant, surgically removed and treated with chemo, and one at the age of 7 treated through radiation). I had another brain tumor (miningeoma behind the eye nerves) that has led to these latest bouts of headaches and my rethinking of my health. I have always struggled with weight and am on every hormone replacement due to the effect on my pituitary. I am currently on a mostly vegan diet, which I have generally enjoyed but am starting to reevaluate.
