06 Feb Lupus and Ulcerative Colitis Reversed!
Linda came to the Goldberg Tener Clinic suffering with Ulcerative Colitis and Lupus. Her Gastroenterologist and Rheumatologist prescribed numerous drugs including antibiotics, Lialda, Imuran, Cymbalta and muscle relaxers which led to side effects including diabetes, mood swings, hair loss and weight gain. Seven months later, Linda is drug free and in excellent health. See before/after lab work below.
C-Reactive Protein (CRP) is a measure of systemic inflammation. It is commonly elevated in patients with autoimmune / inflammatory disorders and can be used to measure patient progress. Linda’s CRP was elevated initially at 4.59 (normal is less than 1.0). Her result now is excellent at 0.3.
Hemoglobin A1C is a measure of blood sugar regulation commonly used to screen for Diabetes. Linda’s result was elevated initially at 6.3 (normal <6.0) which resulted from the long term use steroids (Prednisone) prescribed by her Rheumatologist (click here to read our article Problems with Prednisone). Linda is now off all drugs and her Hemoglobin A1C is healthy at 4.6.
