I am 62, have mild arthritis in l lower back, varicose veins in legs that are ugly but not serious, allergies. I have taken flo nase for my allergies, but this has declined since moving from La to Los Vegas.My weight has dropped from 235 to 180 on a low
calorie, low carb diet. I have started Isometric exercises and been bike riding. In the past, I have had some asthma
. The worst it has gotten was wheezing. I have never had a problem breathing. I have Advair I take if I wheeze. I used to have sleep apnea,
but I thnk the weight loss handled that.I occasionally have tiny spots on my torso, and doctor recommended liver tests I have not done yet. I do not drink alcohol or smoke or do drugs. I also am not as energetic as I like, and have a tendency to dope off.
I drink coffee. I want to achieve optimal health. I have taken MSM and Glucosamne Chondroitin for my arthritis. This may have helped, but has not corrected condition. It is not debilitating, but I avoid bending over as it hurts X rays showed mild arthritis.
I am against pain killers and drugs in general. I am not against hormones per se. Is there anything- exercise, supplement, hormone- you recommend for arthritis? What about Vericose veins? Also, a younger colleague recommends HGH therapy. There are doctors
here in LV who would probably find me deficient in HGH and Testosterone
, and prescribe these. What are the pluses and minuses of this? Are these effective in increasing muscle mass? What are the dangers? Also, K recenlty moved and had health care insurance
in Calif. Are any of these things likely to be covered by Health Insurance, and if so, what type? What do you recommend?
