    What's your take on attacking cancers that have low metabolic needs, which is common in thyroid and prostate cancers ? Regardless of the oncogene or metabolic theories about why the cancer started, which is an ongoing research topic, depriving energy for a low energy malign tissue isn't much of a challenge for those tumors.

      Try extracting and storing as much as possible of your own milk before starting chemo, and use that some days reserve to find a source of someone else's breast milk in your community.

        Try seaching for "SEF Chemo" and see if it fits your father's condition. This treatment is available in California and looks like a good option that balances conventional chemo with some unconventional measures to avoid side effects.  I had a good result of treatment with LDN and I'm now trying DCA, but your father's condition looks like something stronger and decisive is needed.

          I wonder if there is some kind of combination similar to SEF Chemo that could apply for Thrombocythemia. Carboplatin + Mesna would probably not work, but the overall principle of applying chemo and making it less harsh on healthy cells is possibly something to be explored.

            The alternative part of your treatment is a good thing, but not doing the conventional treatment as well is not. Keep having a good diet and good supplements, but also applying whatever the standard of care for your case might be. You already did one conventional treatment, hormone therapy, which seems to have done good. Perhaps keep doing it or adding others; consulting an oncologist instead of an urologist might be...

              Just CT or a PET-CT with FDG ?

                Just to update the progression of my metastatic thyroid cancer (which once was classified as Stage IV, but with new staging criteria is now Stage II): after being controlled by LDN (Low Dose Naltrexone), which made nodule size stop growing and tumor marker down, I tried adding ALA (Alpha-Lipoic Acid). With the new blood tests, I can now say that ALA didn't change the scenario. While this doesn't mean LDN wi...

                  I think it's just human nature... most people are only concerned while they are affected. When it comes to cancer, even though some people live with it, most people either get rid of it or die.

                    Adenomas may stay adenomas for a long time, including all your life... but to get a better assessment, an MRI is the best indication.

                      Hi there. I have been with a steady dosage of levothyroxin of 188 mg for some time now; recently my diabetes has gone a bit out of control, and now I discovered I am a bit hipo (less T3 than needed, T4 on the upper normal, TSH 0.10). Since I'm losing weight I expected the opposite to happen...  ... any idea why ? Search only led me to the effects of hipothyroidism on diabetes, not the other way around.  ...

                      I was diagnosed with Thyroid Cancer in 2012, had 2 hemithyroidectomies and was hopeful that I would make a full recovery. After radioactive iodine there was still traces of Thyroglobulin with no findings in PET/CT, until end of 2016, when I was diagnosed with lung metastases. Genomics testing indicate NRAS mutation, and let's see what can be done to fight this formidable foo.
                      After receiving LDN (Low Dose Naltrexone) and High Dosage Vitamin D, the exponential growth curve has turned to a slow decline, showing incredible results of this very simple, cheap and effective treatment.
                      Now adding alpha-lipoic acid to the combo, but it's soon to say if it helps or not.
