I've had this shite for five days and it sucks. I caught it in Atlanta watching that miserable excuse of a bowl game.

Not necessarily.

It really all depends on the strains they are using.

But many of the "natural" probiotics are acid tolerent in the first place

re: The U.S. Flu Epidemic


And you think that just because your explaination can fit (and I already stated how), it's the best one. So you need not only two conditions converging, but you need atypical presentation in lacking all shortness of breath/pain.

Missed the whole point of the zebra/horses deal?

Is it true that the only good probiotics have a vegetable coating to survive the upper GI acids?

Don't know about that. Have never heard that. Stomach acids can break down meds but I don't know if it matters what type of coating. I'm sure some are better than others, but there are so many out there it's hard to recommend something other than a name brand. GNC usually has good stuff. Unfortunately, our medical resources don't give us a lot of info on natural or non-prescription treatments. We have to search this out on our own.

Is swine/Avian flu covered in todays flu shots. I made fun of the panic of these years ago but a local woman in her 20's died from one of these in my local hospital.

I was explaining to him how he could tell if it was his heart or not. I told him to check his pulse at his wrist when he felt the twitching in his heart. If it didn't match, it wasn't his heart. If it did, then it obviously was. I never said that was the "most likely diagnosis".

If you are pre-med or whatever...write this down. Don't take the easy way out. Yes, common things happen commonly. But, the first thing I do when I see a pt is think to myself "What's the WORST thing this can be?". Then through history taking, exam and labs/test, I rule out all the life threatening things and focus on the "most likely diagnosis".

It's the things that you don't worry about that will get you and kill your pt's. So...I worry about everything!

The swine flu was an extremely mild flu strain this last go around. Yes a few died with or from it, but far fewer than our yearly run of the mill flu epidemics. It's mild nature and heat resistance helped it's spread. People didn't realized they had the flu because of the milder sx's and the time of year they got it. So they continued at work and school spreading it around.

Holy crap!!! Let's see if they are the same people. It was many,many,many years ago. Their kids names are Chad, Christine <-----dark hair. I can't remember the rest of the names.

The guy I remember was named Willie Delcambre. Black hair. He might be their grandfather.

True.

I'm mostly saying you dug your heels way too damn much over your PAC.

Which was brought up over a semantics game at that.

All the more evidence that you do! No one knows everything. And you obviously don't! Your problem is that you don't know what you don't know, and that's a dangerous deficiency. Arrogance kills more pt's than ineptitude every day!

Gotcha.

Back on the probiotics subject.These work.

Just in case you ever get desperate and a patient begs and is out of any traditional med solutions.

As well as candida freedom.

Also a Duke specialist confirms the natural remedy D-Mannose works for frequent UTI's.

I leave to you why people recommend things that don't work. Explain Dr Oz.

I recall a Bill or William Delcambre. I THINK was their father?

I just white paged a basic search for Christine M Delcambre and sure enough she still has her maiden name and lives in NI on Jefferson Island Rd.

There are just as many studies saying that they do. Studies can be manipulated to say anything. For example, honey was long considered the best treatment available for open wounds and burns. Science said this was bull shite and only the RX stuff works. Now big pharma has come out with MEDI_HONEY and it's the best shite EVER. Guess what it is. It's f$%king honey. Only it's several hundred dollars of tube.

By the way Tigah, where'd you go to med school?

I'll give you this. Dr. Oz promotes alot of stuff that's pure bull shite. It makes me sick to see him criticize dr's recieving gifts from drug reps while he takes million dollar checks to promote some shitty arse vitamin supplement that cost a $100 a month and doesn't do jack shite.

frick Dr.OZ!
