Default Jenny the experiment

Not sure if anyone is interested but here goes anyway.

I had purchased some (human) sam e for Buddy and he hadn't started it before he passed away. I thought what the heck so I have been taking it until it ran out last month. I have Osteo and Rheumatoid arthritis and am taking some pretty unfriendly drugs so I have monthly blood tests. Well, my liver function numbers have jumped in the last month since I stopped the sam e.

AST was 23 now 41 (<35)
ALT was 34 now 68 (<40)

I have restarted the sam e and will be very interested in the numbers next month.

Jenny

Jen that is interesting. I often laugh that I worry more about the dogs than I do myself. My dogs need their own medicine cabinet for all the "additives" I put in their food to keep them healthy. Thanks for sharing. Kim

My sister is on a fairly high dose of an anticonvulsant which gives the old liver a bit of a workout, too. Her ALP is elevated but everything is within range.

Next time she goes to the doctor we'll ask about her taking Milk Thistle - I've got heaps of Mia's left over for starters. It will be interesting to see if that brings her ALP down. She only has tests done every six months or so though so it'll be a while before we see any "results".

I go to all her appointments with her as she needs an advocate and "explainer" present for a lot of things.

Did you confess to taking "Buddy's meds"?

I don't tell my doctor anything because I think he is a bit of a nuf nuf and I only see him for the referral and scripts in between visits to the rheumatologist.
I don't see the specialist now until August so I will have another couple of months to see results if I can keep getting the "illegal" copies of the path results.

Anyway they are human meds! The ones I am taking now are called Mood Lift by Naturopathica and claims to "Support emotional wellbeing, joint and liver health."

Here's the Urban Dictionary definition for nuf nuf.

Quote:
1. nuff-nuff
A Retard.

Someone that can't integrate properly in society.
Someone that has a very low IQ usually due to learning disabilities of no fault of their own as opposed to a ning-nang or general idiot who is stupid because they never engaged their brain or tried to learn anything.

Used in a derogatory way to describe idiots who behave as if they never received an education or to decribe a person who behaves in a way that contradicts their IQ level.
Gosh, Jenny, now I'm worried about the quality of your health care or as Alison would say; I'm gobsmacked. I had to look that one up too the first time I saw it. It means being totally speachless....unable to think of anything to say. I had no idea that I would need a dictionary to communicate with you Aussies.

Glynda

P.S. I had no idea that for most of my life, I've been surrounded by nuf nufs and some of them are actually related.

I'm gobsmacked over the behavior of my ex-nuf nuf.

There, did I get it right in a sentence???? I could say it freely here and no one would know what I was talking about. In fact, I can't wait to call him a nuf nuf to his face! LOL!

Jenny, stay on your meds! and isn't it the truth??? I make sure Bailey takes his pills and yet I forget half of mine!

Love ya! Beth
