This common diabetes and blood pressure drug has been linked to skin cancer - here's what you should know...
Research from the University of Southern Denmark and the Danish Cancer Society found a link between skin cancer and a common diabetes and blood pressure drug, hydrochlorothiazide.

If you take one of these drugs containing hydrochlorothiazide, it's important that you read on: HydroDIURIL, Microzide, Esidrix, Oretic, Amturnide, Oreticyl, Esimil, HydrALAZINE Plus, Hydra-Zide, Apresazide, Serpazide, Serathide, Ser-Ap-Es, Diuretic Ap-Es, Avalide, Zestoretic, Prinzide, Hyzaar, Aldoril, Dutoprol, Lopressor HCT, Uniretic, Benicar HCT, Inderide, Accuretic, Quinaretic, Hydropres, Hydroserpine, Aldactazide, Micardis HCT, Timolide, Dyazide, Maxzide, Diovan HCT...

Exposure to this drug increases the risk for skin cancer four-fold...

The researchers studied a sample of close to 80,000 Danish people with skin cancer who were on blood pressure drugs. They found that those taking drugs containing hydrochlorothiazide had an increased risk for skin cancer.

The people who took drugs containing hydrochlorothiazide daily for at least six years were 29% more likely to develop basal cell carcinoma.

They were also almost four times more likely to get squamous cell cancer.

The risk for skin cancer increased the longer they were exposed to hydrochlorothiazide.

What you need to know if you've been taking a drug containing hydrochlorothiazide

The first thing you should do if you've been exposed to hydrochlorothiazide is to protect your skin from UV light. 

Many sun creams contain toxic ingredients or hormone disrupting chemicals so the best approach is to wear light protective clothing to shield your skin from the sun.

In addition to this, you can combine the following natural ingredients to help protect from UV rays: 
  • Almond Oil- SPF around 5
  • Coconut Oil– SPF 4-6
  • Zinc Oxide SPF 2-20 depending on how much is used
  • Red Raspberry Seed Oil SPF 25-50
  • Carrot Seed Oil –  SPF 35-40
  • Shea Butter – SPF 4-6 
And, remember to take a vitamin D3 supplement daily too. 

Also speak to your doctor about changing your medication to reduce your total exposure to hydrochlorothiazide.
