I am a 53 year old female with diabetes. In the past two years I have had 7 stents put in and one subclavian bypass done. They can not figure out why. My arteries in the left side of my body keep closing. Now my cartoid artery is 75% blocked along with the rest. I have been to cardiologists and rhuematologists still no diagnosis other than "I guess we will have to continue putting in stents". I don't think so. No insurance. :confused:

My diabetes is under control so there are no sugars or carbs. They are talking about a thing called Takayasu Arteritis. But there is no for sure way to diagnose this. They have suggested that I go on large doses of steriods but doing that will create a problem with my diabetes. The only other thing they can suggest is chemotherapy to stop my immune system from fighting my veins. Then the problem of infections occures. What makes things even more difficult is that when they did the bypass they nicked the nerve going to my diaphram which at the time created a problem so I ended up in ICU for 13 days cuz I couldn't cough the junk out of my lungs and four different types of infections filled my lungs. Now since the diaphram holds everything in place my stomach sits on top of my left lung.

  • your immune system is not functioning well- I suspect that your intestinal flora is dead. Specially because steroids and antibiotics kill it. A single meal high in saturated fat can affect the health of your arteries.You need to take probiotics. Do you take flaxseed oil and oilfish for essential fatty acids (omega 3)?Do you eat processed food or milk or artificial sweeteners? if you do cut them right way completely and forever.Read the book "Never Be Sick Again", by Raymond Francis.go to Beyondhealth.com and listen to the radio show audio file and read the articles.
