Building a Kidney From Scratch With Stemcells
« on: August 12, 2016, 10:29:28 pm »
Someone asked me if anything useful had been done with stem cell therapies yet.  It is true that the industry is very young.  But here is an interesting example in some animal research where they were able to build a mock kidney from stem cells in rats:

If you are on medications or have a medical condition, always check with your doctor first before making any lifestyle changes or taking new supplements.  And low testosterone is a medical condition.

Now if only they could do a heart...

It was I who asked about stem cell tech.  What I was getting at is that we see interesting stuff like this all the time, but to my knowledge, after all of these years, we still do not have any real human treatments in wide use today where we are actually using stem cell treatments or therapies to help people.

Will we get there someday?  Maybe.  But I'm not holding my breath.
43 years old
5'7", was 220 pounds when trouble started, now down to 165
Trouble began with abrupt ED Early May '15
Initial T level 130
Started Clomid in hopes of rebooting system June '15
Currently taking 25 mg eod and .25 mg Arimidex every 4 days
T level 480 or so at last reading
ED in check with 2.5 mg Cialis eod and supplements:
POM juice, L-Cit, Pycnogenol

Morning anxiety currently in check with GABA taken every night

Biggest current worry is heart health:
Aortic stenosis (very mild for now)
CAC score 156(!) at age 42
Lp(a) is a shockingly bad 390 nmol/L -- TRIPLE the "extremely high risk" level!
Homozygous for the bad "G" variant of SNP rs10455872, which increases Lp(a) as well as odds for aortic stenosis and coronary artery lesions. 
I think I know what trashed my heart...

40 mg Crestor and baby aspirin every day
CoQ-10, Vitamin K2, and Kyolic Aged Garlic Extract every day too
Walking 10,000 steps a day

Great post on a regenerative cell therapy that looks like it will grow new hair follicles in humans.  Hallelujah!
