That’s what we are this afternoon… speechless!
We had Addie’s blood tested again today – 2 months since the last test. Here are her results by month:
|Test||July, 2011||Sept, 2011||Dec, 2011||Jan, 2012||March, 2012||Normal Levels|
|Glucose||94||98||87||89||53||75 – 125|
|Protien||6.9||6.3||7.2||6.5||5.5 – 7.6|
|Creatinine||1.7||1.4||1.5||1.9||1.1||.4 – 1.4|
We don’t have comps for ALP or Protein, but her ALT, Glucose, AND Creatinine all went down. WAY DOWN!! They are not perfect, but they are astonishing to say the least as they had been trending very rapidly in the upward direction. We had been very concerned as they pointed to either liver and/or kidney failure.
So… the question we asked was why the drop? There really were only 2 things that have changed in the past 60 days:
- We added the Chinese herb Shu Gan to her diet.
- We moved to Costa Rica.
Which one caused the positive effect? We don’t know. But we plan on staying in Costa Rica for a while, and we will definitely be ordering more Shu Gan!
