Age To Use Hyaluronic Acid Serum?

I was at the mall yesterday and Nivea went around offering these free skin tests, so I got one. I have pretty dry skin. I'm 36. I have read quite a bit about hyaluronic acid and think that perhaps it has the potential to hydrate my skin, so I asked whether they had that at Nivea. The lady said yes, they have a serum, but it should only be used from age 40. They recommended some other anti-age range for dry skin to me, not hyaluronic acid. 

So this leaves me being baffled really. Is there any truth to the idea that hyaluronic acid is not for people under 40, or was the lady wrong?

Levothyroxine Sodium :: Weight Shoots Up

I started to take levothyroxine last August for hypothyroidism. I have always been slim, no problems with weight UNTIL NOW. Since I started taking the medication my weight started to creep up. In six months I have put on a stone and my tummy is sticking out as if I'm pregnant. I have been on various internet sites to find out why this is happening and I can't find the answers. I believe it is the medication. I spoke to someone from British Thyroid Foundation and she was very rude and unhelpful. She insisted that it wasn't the medication. Well, I had no problems with weight for 35 years and all of a sudden when taking Levothyroxine my weight shoots up, there is something going wrong and I'm not at all happy.

This is very depressing. I feel are we all being tried out as guinea pigs and then in years to come they will admit to it.

Has anyone else had the same problem cos I'm at my wits end. I want to come off this medication its made me feel a lot worse than before.

Parkinson :: Bad Tremors - Sodium Valproate / Lovan?

I suffered severe depression and anxiety and began to get bad tremors around 6 months ago, this was a first for me. My psychiatrist and GP thought it was because I was taking Sodium Valproate which is a mood stabiliser, however I have now come off that (still taking antidepressants, 80mg Lovan daily) but I still have the tremors.

My GP suggested Parkinson's but that I shouldn't have the brain scan now because medicare are not covering them.

Could anyone give me their thoughts on what I should look for in Parkinson's other than the tremors?

Levothyroxine Sodium :: Heat Rash, Allergies, Hay Fever Symptoms

I have been taking Levothyroxine for about 8 months now and since then I seem to be suffering from increasing allergies. I already suffered with Hay Fever during the months of May and June but suddenly I started being allergic to my rabbits. I knew I was allergic to their hay but not the rabbits themselves. The doctor gave me an inhaler for when I needed to use it if I inhaled some of the rabbit fur as I found I was struggling to breath. I then started to be very sneezy at night and in the mornings sometimes sneezing up to about 15 times which is quite wearing. Then my skin started to start feeling really itchy all the time. I went to the doctor and he said that it should not be down to the levothyroxine and prescribed me some antihistamines to take to see if that settled the allergies. I am now getting a heat rash which seems to appear when I exert some energy. I am not talking about a great deal of energy though just a brisk walk or so and the rash starts on my chest and raises up past my ears. Today the rash was even on my legs and my fingers swelled so much that I had to quickly remove my jewellery. Has anyone else experienced this?

Levothyroxine Sodium :: Side Effects - Hot And Then Cold Flushes, Burning Ears And Lips

I have many negative side effects from this drug. I recognise that some may be down to my having Hashimoto's and hypothyroidism but I think I am allergic to some of the medicine's contents. The medicine contains lactose and acacia. I know little about the latter but know that I have become lactose (as well as wheat) intolerant since being diagnosed (9 months ago) and given levo. Some side effects are - hot and then cold 'flushes', burning ears and lips, dizziness, continual headache. I have altered my diet and lifestyle to manage the condition as best as possible but cannot manage these side effects. Any help - or just sharing - very much welcomed. I wonder if there is an alternative drug on the NHS in the UK.

Gestational Diabetes Can Hurt Your Baby

So I went to see the specialist today and let me say first off I was devastated when I found out I had it last week Wednesday ftm @33wks bc it doesn't run in my family and I never had it before. But listening and talking to the specialist it's not that bad and my scoring wasn't bad at all either just by a couple points but I realize that if you just go by the diet and that the things they give you that everything will be ok. But I didn't realize that having high sugars can literally make the babies heart stop at no matter what week you are she's seen it at happen to a lady at 38wks :( that hurt my heart. Bc I don't understand how mothers to be can't follow and do what they have to do for the time being of your pregnancy in order for you  and your child to remain healthy . But I pray daily so I have confidence . Everything will be ok !
