    bypass surgery, stents, and drugs
  1. The problem I have with this obamacare bill is the manner that it was rammed through, as if in a panic. As of yet, nobody really knows what is in it. I have already seen some effects from it--about a 30% increase in my health insurance premiums and a corresponding 30% decrease in coverage.
  2. Wow! I haven't been on here for quite a while, but I do still remember how much Gilbert loves butt rubbing.
  3. Although not healthy, it's GOOD !!
  4. Sorry about that, George. Don't know where I came up with that 20% from. Still the same advice, though. If you let this disease dominate you and take over your life, it'll wear you down in no time. Go for the gold !! (or the brass ring)
  5. Hello, George While reading this entire thread, I had figured out just what advice you needed. But, Dr. Reich stole all my thunder.......... The cath is the best diagnostic tool for these blockages. And it told you that the clerk apparently did overread the 64 slice CT. I'm just guessing, but I think 20% blockage is probably considered to be very minor. I probably have a bunch of 20%s going on my own self. So, long story short, I thinks you're making a mountain out of the proverbial molehill. You're doing all the right things it seems. Don't let it get you down. Now, go o
  6. Mayan calender? I'd say probably not. U S politics? Pretty darn good chance.
  7. Our "heros" in Washington made a very poor choice of wording, saying "end of life counselling". If indeed what they are talking about is living wills and medical directives, it would have been far less inflammatory to just say that. End of life counselling sounds pretty ominous, no matter how you cut it.
  8. kalip, have you come across any info regarding the dose levels of statins as related to the good effects? Specifically, statins stabilize plaque and help prevent blood clotting. But, does taking a larger dose make for larger benefit? I'm told that aspirin therapy works even with a very low dose (81 mg) and that taking more (325 mg) gives no further benefit. Wonder if the statins work the same way? I know that larger doses do lower cholesterol numbers, usually, but there seems to be other ways to do that part that are less risky. Jim
  9. Word on the street is that for the same money, they could have sent every man, woman, and child in the US a check for $50,000. Now that would get your economy going. Suppose that's correct?

    Now Gilbert, ya gotta be a little discreet rubbing those butts...... I've been thinking along those same lines. The butts are so darn cheap right now that they're hard to pass up.

    Just a thought for Denise (and, maybe Gilbert)--Whenever I use a bottled barbecue sauce (Kraft) I thin it a little with white vinegar, like maybe 25% vinegar. Really makes it taste good, at least to me. And I'm pretty sure the vinegar makes the barbecue very healthy for us.
  12. Our new hospital has the stuff to do the 64 slice CT scans, but I don't think it's ever been used for that particular test. I thought it was because the local docs did not think it was reliable. More likely, the insurance not paying is the culprit.
  13. I think you're right Kalip. I think living is one of the most hazardous activities we can participate in. At least it seems to me that most people that live, die sooner or later. Guess we just have to decide what we are willing to give up in order to live that extra few minutes or days. I'm into moderation in all things, myself.
  14. The pills have a very short useful life once they are exposed to air. The spray is good forever (or until the expiration date on the bottle) whichever comes first. I like the spray.

    I'm sure they are not heart-healthy, but the instant taters I like is Ore-Ida. They come in envelopes flavored variously, and are very quick to whip up.
