Trying to Manage Interstitial Cystitis while Following the Bredesen Protocol

After several months of severe pelvic pain, a trip to the ER, and follow up appointments with a urogynecologist, I've been diagnosed with Interstitial Cystitis. The pain was so intense that I was willing to try any of the recommended treatments. I've received a bladder instillation, started on 5mg A...

I was just about to leave the house to go to...the Goodwill in Cape Coral Florida. 😁😁😁 I actually live in Chicago, but we're here visiting our grandkids.

Re: Worst Labs Ever

Grommet,
I'm hoping to have as much success with lowering my LDL-P as you did with dietary changes. Thanks for the encouragement!

Christina A,
Thanks for your recommendation of Pure supplements. I appreciate it!

Re: LifeSeasons ReCode supplements

I guess I'm constantly learning. I was unaware that people with the ApoE4 require more DHA than EPA. A functional medicine doctor that I saw recommended that I take Metagenics EPA-DHA 2400. It has: EPA (Eicosapentaenoic acid triglyceride) 1410 mg DHA (Docosahexaenoic acid triglyceride) 990 mg Other ...

Re: Worst Labs Ever

Nebo, it looks like both you and I have a lot to try to figure out regarding our cholestrol results and which path to follow to get back on track. It's so challenging because there's so much conflicting information! Good luck to you. Thanks, everybody, for your comments!

Worst Labs Ever

My doctor just called to discuss my latest test results. I thought I was on the right track, but I have to admit that I am in shock and starting to freak out. I know that I need to quickly figure out what's wrong and come up with a new game plan, but I'm panicking. For the past year, I've cut out pr...

Re: Targets for Ketosis using BioSense

Thanks so much, Tincup. Unfortunately, I'm struggling to understand what this means. Is my ratio of .6 where it should be? Are you saying that you would assume that my HbA1C would have been lower than 5.5? I wonder what could have caused this discrepancy. Is there something else I need to be aware o...

Re: Targets for Ketosis using BioSense

Thanks so much, Julie! I have a doctor's appointment in 2 weeks and I'm hoping to see an improvement from last year's results! My homocysteine was still high last year at 8.1, but down from 12.1 the previous year. My hbA1c was still too high at 5.5, but it was down from 5.7. My doctor expressed a re...
