My mother is 74 and has never been able to sweat. I am trying to help her get her blood pressure regulated. She jumps high to low and my worry is the diruretics that are prescribed for her; is it dangerous to have those if you can't sweat? She has also been plagued with kidney stones all her life. She had parathyroid surgery 10 yrs ago when Dr.s thought that would help stop her stones. .NOT. They don't recommend parathyroid surgery any more, but I wonder if all this is somewhat connected to why she cant sweat and why her BP is so irregular.

  • sounds like a magnesium deficiency. Try some magnesium chloride or a product called Ultra Mag. Magnesium plays a very key role in many things including blood pressure, maintainence of other electrolytes in mag def has been shown to form kidney stones.

  • Magnesium is probably the culprit - too much calcium will reduce magnesium effectiveness. Exatest.com has a test that can check this, it is non-invasive and reasonably priced. Use a high quality magnesium (not magnesium oxide) something like magnesium chloride or UltraMag from Source Naturals.
