Well itâ€™s been a month since my last check up and things are really on track. My BP is controlled using Valsartan (average 123/58) so far with no problems. Amazingly, my total Cholesterol is in the good low range and the HDL (good ) Cholesterol is up. Kidney function has returned to acceptable levels and my new arches and posture supports are working and the back pain is going away. AND 1/8 Cialis tab/day is keeping me me on the cutting edge, so to say â€“ also helping with the BP.
I am finding out that the â€œFolic Acidâ€ that the doctor in Chiang Mai had me taking to help the weakened kidneys was affecting my sleep and seemed to be making my muscles ache â€“ so I have now cut it down and that seems to be working good â€“ going to stop taking it and the blood thinner Pavlix â€“ both of these I am slowly reducing so there are no sudden stoppage that can cause side effects.
Solution: I start every day off with a large hot bowel of Oatmeal ( Hahneâ€™s Trauben-Nuss Sultanas-Nut) and I add Honey for taste, then I make sure I walk about 2 miles/day, eat 3 squares of a â€œRitter Sport â€“ Fine Extra Dark Chocolate 73% CoCo bar daily â€, have grilled fish for dinner at least twice/week and enjoy great lunches and dinners of sautÃ©ed vegetables/rice, salads, fresh fruits and pastas, everything cooked using only olive oil and no salt.
I did try â€œFish oilâ€ for a while, but through research I found the version I was taking did not have high enough levels of DHL (600mg) so stopped until I can find a product with the high DHL levels. Maybe I wonâ€™t need it if my cholesterol ratios keep getting better as they have been – . So at this point NO OPERATION. Weâ€™ll see what the reports are like next month.
