Can be the person take MuscleTech nitro-tech protein?

Can be the person take MuscleTech nitro-tech protein?

Why?: Supplements like this are only likely to cause problems, such as future kidney disease.

What woul happen if a 15-year-old takes nitro pills for a while without a need (rx)? Would there be any long term effects? Thanks for your answers...

Good luck! ...Read more

Colorec doc found fissure.  Gave nitro ointment. Viola. Problem diagnosed. Recommended colonoscopy. Why? I'm 42. No fam history. Seems premature?

Why colonoscopy?: Fissure may have been only cause of bleeding, but doc needs to make certain that was the only cause. Diverticula, Crohn's ds, polyps, cancer call all cause rectal bleeding. Colon cancer is not something to wait and see; once it's there, it's very hard to treat. Prevention is much better than needing treatment.
