Beetroot Juice

Hi I am taking part in a study as a volunteer subject at a university hospital in London on the effectiveness of Beetroot Juice to aid hypertension. Many journals chronicle the link between Thyroid disorder and hypertension so I am guessing there are quite a few good subjects here who wouldn't mind participating in the research, like me. If you want to help the study and would be interested please private message me for details.

Btw, This research study looks at the relationship between beetroot juice and its blood pressure lowering effects.

This study might be suitable for those whose blood pressure are not under control. Volunteers should be on at least one medication for high blood pressure.

Accepting all volunteers aged 18-80. Not suitable for people with diabetes. Additional medical conditions will be screened by the research doctors to assess eligibility.

Email Clement Lau on c.lau@qmul.ac.uk for more details

Good luck

Lisa

  • It might help people know whether or not to contact you if you edit your post to include details like the stated age range, gender, any excluded diagnoses etc. etc. for volunteers?

  • Ok, I will ask the team for this information. Thanks.

  • I would be interested, had read about beetroot juice lowering blood pressure, and have been drinking it for a couple of months, as yet no significant reduction, already on two tablets, and others prescribed have given me terrible side effects. Also take t3and t4.

  • I am not totally convinced that the non movement in your blood pressure is due to taking beetroot juice. That's a bit like saying I put a bit of unleaded fuel in my diesel engine but because I put the diesel in (car takes diesel, btw) it will be ok. No!! The problem might be the T3. It was for me. Details follow for the study in next message.

  • Thanks..were you told t3 had a bearing on blood pressure?

    I have been taking combined t3/4 for over ten years, and two bp medications.

    I will email the details given.

    Thanks

  • I wasn't told it would have a bearing on it but evidence of my own situation and how my body instantly reacted to it as I am on the ball with my hypertension taking daily readings for the hospital. It peaked very high at one stage and I had a turn on holiday which put me in another hospital for two nights under observation.

    Wouldn't touch it again.

  • Had you been on t3 for long? And is it since being on this trial you became aware of t3 being something that raised your bp?

    I have just received paperwork from dr Lau, but think it would be difficult to get up to London for the visits required.

    It is a very interesting subject, and I will continue with beetroot juice...ever hopeful, thank you for bringing it to our attention.
