Re: Surgery

I have severe osteoarthritis of my left hip but I am afraid to have surgery. I am concerned about the possibility of developing Postoperative Cognitive Dysfunction (POCD). I have an ApoE4 gene which I know increases my risk. If you do a search on "anesthesia", you will find prior discussi...

Re: Bredesen practitioner - Minneapolis MN area??

Nancy; The "Searching for a Healthcare practitioner" link that Lisa G offered to you shows how to search for a Bredesen trained provider from the IFM website. This may make your search a little easier! Many of these practitioners are available through telehealth, which opens up access to m...

Re: statins and antibiotics together

On the same day I had an appointment for a recurring sore inside my nose. It turned out to be a non-issue but doctor prescribed mupirocin antibiotic for two weeks. Mupirocin is typically a topical antibiotic, with less body wide distribution and much less possible negative effect on the gut. I like...

Re: Help from Amen Clinic for elderly parent?

They have a Bredesen-trained DO, but I don't think he's able to do much for them. Hi Debbie; We always want to do everything we can for our loved ones. Three years does seem like a long time to be working hard and not seeing the results you were hoping for. Has the DO addressed all of the many aspe...

Re: high HDL

Some numbers, all nonfasting: Total cholesterol: 229 LDL: 129 HDL: 86 (cut-off for "normal" by this lab was 65) Cholesterol HDL ratio: 2.7 Triglycerides: 66 Blood glucose: 85 A1C: 5.1 These results look pretty good to me, especially for non-fasting. You might want to read our wiki chapter...

Re: Bad experience with propofol

I had one polyp removed on my 50-year-old colonoscopy, and it was considered precancerous. The doctor recommended another colonoscopy in five years. At the 55-year-old colonoscopy, no polyps were found and I was paroled for 10 years due to good behavior. If there's nothing on my 65-year-old exam th...

Re: The Ketogenic Diet: A Neurologist’s Warning

Just as saturated fats are thought by some to cause arteriosclerosis of heart arteries, SF is also associated with stroke . The process of arteriosclerosis, regardless of cause, gradually restricts the blood flow to the heart, brain, muscles, etc. There have been lively debates elsewhere on our webs...
