Post stroke treatment

    Hi Dr.Kruse! A month ago my brother Edwin had a second stroke at 44 y/o (lives in Chicago). Since his first stroke in June 2017 he's been an avid follower of yours. He was in the hospital for 3 weeks and now in rehab for 10 days. He just got his vit D levels:54.3, homocysteine: 6.8.
    1) He's wondering what labs would be helpful (maybe 23&me or Genova for snp's and haplotype)? any specific protocol?
    2) The doctor wants to give him deplin - any thoughts on that?
    3) very difficult time with BM/bloating and urinating. None of these were an issue prior to second stroke. He's thinking that Pivot (feeding tube food in hospital) was the culprit as it had dairy and then the thickener in rehab had xanthan gum. Any insight on how to improve flow?
    Lastly, we've been able to collect funds for the Vie Light Neuro Duo (brain) - he's been using their other products for a few years. Before we purchase this is there anything else you would recommend? Many thanks for your time and dedication - Edwin has been very thankful for your insight over the years. Since he can't talk I've been his scribe and mouthpiece. Thanks again for any pointers you can give us!

    The key issue is not even asked here..............

    He needs to leave Chicago at once.
