They Took Him Off Of 5 Medications!

My Dad, who will be 82 at the end of this month, has kidney damage due to years and years of medications for various conditions.  But he has been on a full regimen of Shaklee supplements for a while now and has, over time and under his doctor's supervision, been able to eliminate five medications - two for cholesterol and one each for arthritis, blood pressure, and diabetes.  Not only have his cholesterol count, blood pressure, and blood sugar improved, but he has less pain from arthritis and the Creatine, Potassium, and other blood counts that are markers of poor kidney function have improved.

The med Dad eliminated most recently was Avandia, which the FDA placed a black-box warning on due to increased evidence of cardiovascular risk - after Dad had been taking it for some time.  He was relieved that he wasn't taking it any more and that his blood sugar was more, rather than less, stable.

It's NEVER too late to invest in improving one's health nutritionally.  Dad is living proof!
