My Mom has Type 2 Diabetes and High Blood Pressure from last 10 years. She is 63 yr old. Her average Blood pressure range is usually 162/91 mm/hg and Random Blood sugar is usually around 390 mg/dl.
She is currently taking diabetes and blood pressure lowering medications including:
- Teneligliptin(40 mg/day) for diabetes,
- Telmisartan(160 mg/day) & Chlortalidone(25mg/day) for Hypertension.
She is a strict vegetarian. Also, she has complications like Diabetic Neuropathy.
Now, below are dietary supplements she takes everyday:
Vitamin B12 (100mcg),
Vitamin C (500mg)
Vitamin D (5mcg),
Vitamin E (400iu)
Omega-369 (1200mg) fish oil capsules,
Co-Enzyme Q10 (30mg)
Now, can she take Co-enzyme Q10 (30mg/day) supplements?
I have done some research and learned that CoQ10 might lower the Blood pressure and Blood sugar levels. Also, it might interfere with Blood pressure medications ir blood sugar medication?
Now, is it safe for her to take a 30mg CoQ10 capsule everyday?
