Yes: You can try. There is certainly no harm in trying as long as the medicine you try is safe and you are monitored. But there is no evidence that any form of therapy works well to reverse the ovarian failure. Treating symptoms is different. ...Read more

For centuries children and adults did ok treating polycystic kidney disease with home remedies. Why can't i?

For centuries children and adults did ok treating polycystic kidney disease with home remedies. Why can't i?

We know more now: Polycystic kidney disease has been around for a while, home therapies had the advantage of not being scientifically tested. Thisdisease also causes different degrees of illness in different victims, fooling docs into thinking that the "home remedy" was effective, when the disease was just not as bad in that patient. Home remedies should be used with the help of a doctor. ...Read more

Am faced w/ choices of lupron (leuprolide) or surgery for endometriosis. Unable to tolorate hormone contraceptives and have gilberts syndrome. Which option is best?

Am faced w/ choices of lupron (leuprolide) or surgery for endometriosis. Unable to tolorate hormone contraceptives and have gilberts syndrome. Which option is best?

Choices: Only a doctor who met and examined you can answer this. But, i recommend surgery for patients who are good candidates. Surgery is the only way to make a firm diagnosis, results are generally excellent, and though recurrences happen, they often don't. Lupron (leuprolide) can defintiely help with pain, but: no diagnosis, no fix, expensive, symptoms, and pain comes back when you discontinue. ...Read more

91 yrs.My GP not interested in my enlarged scrotum also not on Anticoagulation with diagnosed Heart Failure.Is there alternative to taking digoxin ?

91 yrs.My GP not interested in my enlarged scrotum  also not on Anticoagulation with diagnosed Heart Failure.Is there alternative to taking digoxin ?

Many physicians: believe that at 91 a "minimalist" approach is indicated. IFor example the scrotal swelling is most likely a hernia but if not symptomatic surgery probably not wise in the nineties. Likewise unless Digoxin is causing problems , why replace it (There ARE alternatives). Finally ANTICOAGULATION is probably more risky than their BENEFITS at age 90 plus! In other words IF IT AIN'T BROKE DON'T FIX IT! Z ...Read more

F 56 yo having lvc vasculitis many years

thx.

Not really: I assume that you mean lcv, leukocytoclastic vasculitis. There are no good data on alternative therapy. Dhea has been shown to be a possible adjunct to conventional threapy in lupus erythematosus. Others have no good data. Lcv can range from mild to life-threatening disease. Accordingly, conventional therapy is mandatory, unless (rarely) a cause for the disease can be found. ...Read more
