    I finally got the name of the procedure that my urologist was recommending. It's called a uro lift
    I watched several videos about it and it got good recommendation, but of course these could be plants by the manufacturer

    I broke my left hand Monday. My dog was attacked by a pit bUll in the park where I was walking her. I was trying to get the pit bull off my dog, he had a death grip on her lower jaw and would not let go, so I punched him in the head as hard as I could 3 times and he finally released. Funny thing is that I did not break my right hand thAT I punched him with, I broke my left hand and I don't know how. I broke the bone on the pinky side of my hand . I got a open splint put on yesterday but it still makes it difficult to do a lot of things. I need one hand to steady myself

    Sorry, to hear that.
    Are you right or left-handed? I assume right-handed.

    Right handed, but because of my balance issues I really need 2 hands, one to grasp on to things to maintain my balance and the other to be able to carry stuff.
    I can only do a very abbreviated yoga routine and I am unable 2 put my ice vest on

    since then I have found new guidelines
    Look it over, It looks like you could use some amount of straight T3

    NOTE: we discovered it’s not necessary to do the ratio anymore.
    Reverse T3 (also called Reverse Triiodothyronine)

    I have a hammer, everything looks to me like a nail.
    There is a chance that pituitary may be the reason for your balance issue.
    There is a chance that pituitary may be the reason for your kidney stones.
    There is a (big) chance that your new Total Testosterone is low because the pituitary has not got a good signal to produce enough (LH)
    It has been found that the hypothalamus hormone (TRH) may be helpful.
    In trials affected positively size of testicles and work of kidneys.

    Pituitary adenomas are common "brain tumors", but only on rare occasions are they sources of dizziness or imbalance.

    Most of my information about TRH I posted here:

    I am using it now since 2/16/2020

    OMG. That must have been traumatic :(
    Strong that you hit that pitbull in the head, huh! I cant believe people keep their dogs not tied up. Especially the more dangerous ones that are breed to fight.
    Hope the owner of that dog took some responsibility and offered you some compensation for your and your dogs suffering.

    thanks for caring. The dog was on a leash Unfortunately no one was holding the other end.
    After the attack I was mostly concerned with getting my dog into the safety of my car and heading home to tend to our wounds so I did not get their information
    dogs like that should wear muzzles

    I am pretty confident that my balance issues are all caused by the Clippers

    the kidney stones caused by my protracted steroid use

    had blood work last week and I'm just waiting to get the results

    is cytomel considered to be T3?
    I read through all the reasons for having high reverse T 3 and the only one which seems to apply to me is chronic inflammation which is quite common in AI conditions
    it is strange that I don't have any of the symptoms have hypothyroidism

    Levothyroxine (Synthroid) is a synthetic version of T4,
    liothyronine (Cytomel) is a synthetic version of T3.

    My T3 is in range but my TSH and T 4 is now low.
    BUN/ Creatinine ratio is improving
    strangely my testosterone measurements have flipped now my total is in range in my free is low
    another unusual thing is that my sodium is now in range, now that I eat lots of salt, when I wasn't eating much salt my sodium was high

    DHEAs is low
    I would use 100mg/day DHEA pills (for life) without much of other analyzing. But likely you would need more.

    DHEAs is a very big part of the steroid hormone panel.
    When low caused many other imbalances.

    You would get a better view of your Steroid Hormone Panel by doing DUTCHtest.com

    the DHEA # seems very low, I may have forgotten to take my DH EA the day before I got my blood tested
    when I was taking 4 pills my results were above 1200 and labeled abnormal
    when I was taking 3 pills my levels were 800
    when I was taking 2 pills my levels were 400
    I am currently taking one pill

    I talked to my doctor and he said at DHEA sulphate is a measure of your DH EA reserve end should not be affected by skipping one or 2 dosaes. So we decided that I should take 2 pills (25 mg) and retest. This may be why my testosterone went low

    As you see from the table I posted above,
    DHEAs is (by weight) the major steroid hormone (95%).
    Its status affects the whole Steroid Hormone Panel (including cortisol without which we cannot live).

    I am thinking about DHEAs in a similar way I am thinking about Water Tower in the city.
    By itself, it does very little,
    but it affects them all.

    I am isolating 4 the coronavirus, I am over 65, have and AI condicion and take immuno suppressive drugs to manage iT. 3 strikes
    I am on my last case of DDW and I will not be procuring anymore for the time being. Jack has recommended increasing water intake, I cannot afford that with DDW
    also had to give up my chest freezer for food storAGE so no more ice VEST
    Jack said that CT will not help with the virus
    I am trying to get more sun 2 improve my redox, even though it causes me squamas cell cancer. Skin cancer doesn't usually kill you.
    Maybe we will learn something from this pandemic, this virus was spread primarily by air travel. Also it may not be any good idea to offshore all your production

    Hi Peter!
    Consider reviewing some posts after this one:
    I am trying to make a summary of the situation that we are in.
    Hopefully, this will work.
    We all eventually will get exposure to the corona COVID-19 virus.
    All who were exposed will get AntiBodies. (Not really sure here).
    Most will live through it, without realizing it.
    Some will get sick, basically going through influenza.
    Few people (that initially were in poor health) will die.
    we have a pool of people in poor health, and only some of them are in grave danger.
    But instead
    everybody and their brothers clog hospitals. And that scare has created the current problem.
    I say, poor health, that would be by definition of MD
    but not
    by @Jack Kruse definition (who is MD).
    For Jack, just about everybody is sick, or most precisely, everybody could improve his circumstances when listening to his advice.
    When looking for a better definition of poor health (that could be used for coronavirus circumstances)
    that would be someone who is a few steps away from having sepsis.
    Looking for suggestions on
    how to figure that (very small) group.

    I suspect that you are not in that group.

    5G could certainly be the culprit
