Dr. Crisler Recovering Nicely - Wishing Him the Best
« on: March 31, 2016, 04:16:25 pm »
For those who don't know, Dr. Crisler has been for years an apostle of good TRT protocols and all of us enjoying TRT today owe him.  Apparently, he had a minor heart attack but is doing well.  Nelson has a thread on it:

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.

See Dr. Crisler's post at the link Peak has above.  My only two questions would be what was his blood viscosity and has he been donating blood every couple of months.  When I was on TRT if I didn't donate regularly or my numbers would go way up.  The first time my TRT doc alerted me after blood test he wasn't in a panic but suggested I donate no later than the next day.

Thick blood seriously raises the risk of heart attacks.  There are lots of things that lower the risk of thick blood including some of the diet idea found in this forum...

Trust me - Dr. Crisler was  all over that.  He and Dr. Shippen know more about TRT than probably anyone out there.

Sorry to hear that about Dr C.  But I do have to tease Peak a bit.  "minor" is not a proper adjective for heart attack  ;)

Hey Joe -  Crisler set the record straight:  "It was actually considered a major heart attack. I had a complete right side blockage, thanks to a lone anomalous plaque rupture. Had the total situation been any different (i.e. when the ambulance arrived at my home, I was lying on the front steps, and the Cath Lab was already prepped and ready upon arrival) the Cardiologist said I wouldn't have made it. Instead, they cleared and stented the blockage, and scoped the rest of my cardiac arteries--they are "squeaky clean". I have already been returned to full daily activities. God is good"

His description of the plaque makes you wonder if he had a calcium scan score and nothing showed up which does happen.

Most people don't have a thrombosis resulting in a 100% blockage and all is well 24 hours later.  Wonder if he had developed collaterals that kept the blood flowing and saved his life?

For whoever is reading this thread, just keep in mind by his own admission Dr. Crisler was a steroid bodybuilder before becoming a DO. If he took high doses of different chemicals as a younger man, the groundwork for future health problems could've been laid years ago. I realize it's ironic that an anti-aging doctor gets a heart attack in his 50s.

Go easy Davie.  What's done is done.  Almost all of us did crazy crud in our younger days!
