Health Q&A: January 14, 2019


Hey Dr. Glidden, I have a young lady in her mid 70ís, approximately 5í6î and 100lbs. Iím not sure where they come up with this stuff but due to her low sodium levels, her doctor has diagnosed her with something called SIADH, Syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone secretion. She has been restricted to 32 oz of total liquid per day which has brought her sodium level up to where it should be but I just canít believe dehydrating oneself is the answer. She eats healthy(organic), salts her food with Himalayan salt, I believe is gluten free and does supplement(not YoungevityÖ yet). Not sure if itís related but she has been dealing with thyroid cancer and recently had her thyroid removed along with some lymph nodes. I would love to hear your thoughts. Thank you!

5:50 Question : Good night. My son's jaw hurts and is swollen. We observed it is kind of lopsided. One side of his jaw is higher than the next and it hurts when he eats. We think this has been an ongoing issue for a while since he was 14. He is now 17. At 14 years old he yawned really wide and he said he felt tissue dropped down in his chin. He was in alot of pain at the time. I took him tho the doctor back then and recently since the pain and swelling came back. He was prescribed Cataflam for the pain. He recommended to go to a dental surgeon. But I think he should go to a chiropractor. What are your thoughts? And what nutrients should I give him? I know about osteo fx, Glycogen, flexi care, or sta restored from your book. I need something to help him heal asap as he is in pain. Please help. Also is Cataflam medication too harsh for him? If so what should I give him for the pain? Thanks alot doc. Should he get an xray also?
