Thyroid Medication

Hyperthyroidism occurs when too many thyroglobulin proteins bind to iodine, increasing the amount of hormones produced. Hyperthyroidism is treated with drugs that bind to iodine and partially block the production of hormones, bringing the hormone level back down to normal.

Blood Pressure Affected by Work, Home

Your boss can raise your blood pressure -- and so can your spouse, researchers say. A British study found that women had higher blood pressure when working for a supervisor who was considered unfair than when they worked for a more favored supervisor. A U.S. study found that husbands and wives had higher blood pressure when they were in a marital spat. Those with the highest blood pressure were men and women who were trying to change their spouses in some way.
