Thanks Woody. I looked it up and it's not pretty!! Here's a lINK to a list of the side effects.
Estimated cost is $1300 to $2500 per dose and it is covered by Medicare. Not sure what my cost of that would be though because the Part D plan I have doesn't cover much. I'm suppose to be able to upgrade to a better plan if needed but they cost much more per month.
The apple cider vinegar one is looking good about now. Hey, wonder if just plain old hard apple cider would work?
Thanks for the info guys. By the time I get to see a Dr on this, I may have a fair amount of knowledge about this stuff and will be able to make a more informed decision on my treatment.
Apple Cider Vinegar that still has the "wort?/must?/mother?" in it if not mistaken. The crud that settles out like in a bottle of Home Brew that they haven't filtered out.
I think it is Braggs Vinegar if not mistaken?
