Re: Moving a loved one and re-homing a pet

Try having the new owner come for extended visits with the pet, take the animal for walks and care for it in the new home for short periods before full-time ownership begins. Small steps are easier on everyone involved compared to an abrupt change. Thanks, NF52, I read that page, too. My brother-in...

Yep, this is the type of M&P she used. I think you're right that crushing gives more flavor.

Moving a loved one and re-homing a pet

I know this forum is not for caregiving per se, but I'm wondering if anyone has faced moving a loved one to memory care, who has a beloved pet. My brother-in-law has recently passed, and my sister-in-law can not live on her own. She has a dog she absolutely will not give up - a 70+ pound pit bull - ...

I have a friend from South America who has a large set just for making guacamole. As a taste tester I can say it was really, really good!

For once, I seem to have hit the genetic lottery, but getting a baseline bilirubin and CoQ10 would be smart no matter what.

Re: 2020 Deep Dive into Statins with Roberta Brinton et al

...would anybody be able to simply describe the relative advantages/disadvantages of each of the four clusters of statins? I don't know if it's that simple, but if we look at it through the lens of precision medicine, this research might suggest that certain statins work better for us based on our ...

Re: 2020 Deep Dive into Statins with Roberta Brinton et al

I'm not (yet?) educated on interpreting the statistics, so I welcome feedback on that and anything else. Very interesting paper. I'm certainly not an expert in statistics, but what I found interesting was their protein/gene pathway analysis for statins in which 4 clusters emerged based on mechanism...

Re: Alzheimer's triggered/sped-up by prednisolone?

Soon afterwards she was diagnosed with Alzheimer's after a scan showing temporal lobe atrophy, and since then the classic pattern of decline. Sorry you are seeing such an alarming, drastic decline. Try searching on "steroid dementia", because prednisolone is a steroid. Here's a link to wh...
