Hi JerryB,jerryb wrote:My wife has m.c.i. And we are following protocol with a Bredesen practitioner...Six weeks ago had a colonoscopy and has had worse g.i. symptoms since then mainly with periodic diarrhea.
Seven days ago she began having swelling in ankles and feet and is quite lethargic much of the day. We have discontinued the Bredesen supplements that include Ashgawanda and discontinued the female hormones. The suspicion is that she has dysbiosis possibly with SIBO...she continues to have symptoms .

I have taken my wife to two walk-in and one regularly scheduled Dr's appointments in the last ten days and and she has had two rounds of fairly extensive lab tests. G.P. is in regular contact with me and she has scheduled Echo cardiogram and a referral to an Internal medicine team in addition to an appointment with a g.i. specialist. If there were an increase in symptoms we would go to an emergency unit. I think it is in part due to female hormone replacement therapy ( now discontinued ) and her gut issues.
jerryb wrote:Good news. My wife’s swelling in feet and ankle is almost completely gone. And she seems somewhat more energetic. Now for the powers that be to analyze what the heck caused it in the first place. I continue to wonder about her IBS and how it has interacted with her cognitive decline.

Curious also in TO area. Would you mind sharing your Bredesen practitioner? New to the site and would really like to learn more from a professional.
