Health Q&A: July 11, 2016


 

Question : Hello Doc, I’m male 35 years. In a recent test blood work my My T3, T4 and TSH came perfectly normal but theTestosterone value came out to be 241.4 ng/dl (Reference Range: 241 - 827).  Should I be worried? What can I do get the levels back up? 

Also, in an ultrasound, it was found that I have very very mild varicocele. Not sure if these 2 are related.

Question : Hi Dr. G. I didn’t do the new homeopathic because things changed up for me again.  I am having borderline/high blood pressure at different times throughout the day depending on activity – should I give it a “go” anyway?  Finally what’s the real trick with the sweeteze, take it when you eat or just take it at the same time every day whether eating or not? Thanks!

Question : My experience this week…not all naturopathic physicians are “on board.”  I saw a naturopath here for the first time and had the Boston Heart Diagnostics done just out of curiosity.  It showed that I have the MTHFR variation and she is recommending a different supplement.  When I asked if she could show me how this variation was impacting my health with any of the other measures, I only got some verbage about how it is important for overall health and liver detox.  (Homocysteine was OK.) The test also showed that I have “sticky” LDL.  And of course she was concerned about my “high” cholesterol at 210 (LDL 110, HDL 97).  Do I have a reason to be concerned about any of this?

Question : I’m 28, 120 pounds. This ND I'm seeing though I know he's trying to help me, might just be making things worse!! And was wondering if you could help me make sense of what's going on with me. It's very scary!! So we think I have adrenal fatigue syndrome & he’s got me on adaptogen herbs ashwaganda is one of them to help with electrolyte imbalances because that has become a very scary problem in itself, but now I feel like Hypoglycemic symptoms are getting worse, blood pressure changes I have been… getting some chest pains now!! And joint pain and other weird pains!! There have been times where I feel like I'm having a heart attack or something! I'm still taking BTT only 1 dose maybe if I'm lucky, plus I'm taking the mediclear plus. My ND says it's ok to take both, but I just don't know about this...feel like I have spent money to only have things get worse instead of better! I am very certain my thyroid is low functioning I have a low temperature all the time it seems. I'm going to not take the… adaptogens today and see what that does...wondering what your opinion is on this? I did discover the EFA plus was what was making my palms red and making me look bloated, so I'm taking ultimate EFA instead. I would just like to find a simple program that's going to correct all of these things. It's like I have blood sugar issues now & everything else to boot! Thank you

Question : Hello Dr. Glidden! Larry has no thyroid, since doctors destroyed it years ago with radioactive iodine. What can I give him to get him off of 150 mcg Levothyroxine that he must take daily? This is the last med - he came off of 15 others in one year with the help of you and Youngevity!!! 

Question : My daughter has been deemed a "risk" at work as she isn't vaccinated. She has sent you an email through Glidden.comsubject "Urgent Help Me Stay Unvaccinated." If you'd rather not get into this on air then that's o.k. Have a friend who's child has Periodic Fever Syndrome.Dr's can't find a cause. They want to take tonsils and adenoids out. Child has had about 40 fevers so far this year. What would you recommend we tell her. Not on any supplements yet.

Question : Survival Shield X-2 - Nascent Iodine?

Since it came up some times ago that this Iodine product contains oil, and therefore you said it's better not to take it, I'd like to give the add. Information, that they use vegetable glycerin. Production Process of Vegetable Glycerin. Vegetable glycerin is produced using an extraction process called hydrolysis. During hydrolysis, oils are placed under the combined force of pressure, temperature, and water. The ester bond breaks and causes the glycerin to split from fatty acids and be absorbed by water; at which point the resultant is further isolated by distillation to increase purity. Purified vegetable glycerin has a texture similar to an oil or syrup due to its organic molecular makeup, specifically, three hydroxyl groups.

Since the fatty acids - which may be oxidized - are separated from the glycerin during the process, is it not safe to use products with vegetable glycerine, such as Infowar's Survival Shield X-2 - Nascent Iodine?

Question : Hey Doc! Over one year"All In"on the program and to say I feel great would be an understatement!
