Doctor here. Shots are unnecessary and anyone trying to charge you for them is taking you for a ride. First of all, Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin so it absorbs better when ingested with food. If the level is below 20 then prescription orals once a week for 12 weeks and then OTC. If over 20 then...Jump to post
While I can understand France is upset over the diplomacy of this, recalling ambassadors seems like an overreaction. I also find it interesting that all the French rage is directed at Australia and the US, when it was initiated and coordinated by the UK. All the more telling that this reaction is a ...Jump to post
Family should have known their PCP's political leaning long before. I know very well what my Doctor's opinion on COVID-19's origin. Whether I agree/disagree it is not my business as long as he is good in taking care of our health. It's generally a good idea for patients and doctors to NOT discuss p...Jump to post
Doctor here and sadly, a small number of people like that exist in my profession. That being said it's estimated that 98% of doctors are vaccinated. It's infuriating and saddens me that with all this knowledge, a doctor would actively discourage a patient from getting a vaccine for no logical reason...Jump to post

None of these people can ever again say that BLM is violent. Smashing windows and spray painting is nothing compared to these MAGA supporters.

Good to sea that AZ is being called. Counts were getting close.

I have heard this point made several times in different places: All those Republican wins are fraudulent as well since the Biden win was on the same ballot. Haven't you figured it out now that the only legitimate wins are for Republicans. They're fine with the media calling Republican wins, but if ...Jump to post
A far bigger question is why the Medical personell at the hospital allows the President to leave in his condition. He is clearly not well and certainly not ready to continue as president in his condition. Highly suspect by the doctors. As a doctor who has COVID patients, technically I can't hold th...Jump to post

I'm surprised that your doctor has you on doxazosin for so long. It's really not as effective for high blood pressure than it is for prostate enlargement.. I assume that you are referring to Hytrin which I was put on in the 90's. My urologist told me at the start that is was a pretty poor treatment...Jump to post
I'm a primary care doctor. I'm surprised that your doctor has you on doxazosin for so long. It's really not as effective for high blood pressure than it is for prostate enlargement. You have much better options. Usually an ACE-inhibitor like lisinopril or thiazide type diuretic is the first choice. ...Jump to post
A.net used to be a blast back in the day. People argued about politics back then too but it was less personal and there was still good banter despite those differences. There were memes before they were called memes.
The gkirk sheep threads were great including OYRJA's clogs.
Southern California. Doctor here so going back to work starting tomorrow after the weekend off. The hospital has been eerily quiet for the last week. The following week I do hospital rounds. Hoping that the surge doesn't come to fruition or that it's manageable. If anything it gives us more time to ...Jump to post
Trump is banning all Travel to Europe, even while lying about the European response. Yet he is not applying the restrictions to the UK who are just as deep in it as we are. Opening up some treatment options which is ok, but still a late turnaround for "not an issue" Yeah I don't get this....Jump to post
I’m not sure he will get much pressure to pick Abrams. She doesn’t bring the liberal wing of the party. Harris doesn’t help a whole lot either on that front. Warren would be a better fit for the demographic weaknesses of Biden. He will get some, there are many that still wrongfully believe she got ...Jump to post
So, your doctor and nurse are villains? Neither said nor implied. This is evident based on the fact that one here is discussing the removal of Doctors or Nurses. If you going to reduce medical costs, you’re not doing it on “waste” or trimming insurance companies overhead. The big money is in medica...Jump to post
United 226 Union in NV not endorsing a candidate. LOL. What a waste that presser was. Word! But quite a troll move.

A Sanders nomination would be fodder for the GOP and Trump. I think the only ones with a real chance to beat him are Buttigieg, Klobuchar, and Bloomberg.

So much for complaining, the guy apparently won Iowa, though the fiasco hasn't ended yet, at the very least he was tied to first place with Sanders.

I said it before and I'll say it again, there's no way a gay man will be elected as President. There are too many people in this country who will not be able to look past that and will vote for Trump just because he's gay. https://www.airliners.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=1420957&p=21303...Jump to post

Didn't Trump campaign on getting the US out of the Middle East and to not get involved with wars there? Now he's trying to start a war with Iran which was ultimately his own doing after ripping up the Iran Nuclear Deal, just because it was done by Obama.

Nothing is wrong with California other than the constant "opinions" made by people who don't live here. Sometimes I feel like California is to the US, what the US is to the world.

IMO the Explorer II is a bit of an ugly duckling, if you're going for a Rolex GMT then the GMT Master II is the one to have, although I think there is certain stigma to wearers of Rolex tool watches. https://www.tidssonen.no/cms/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/rolex-gmt-master-ii-126710blro-06179.jpg Fa...Jump to post
As said above, the Rolex will retain its value more if you care for it, and is more recognizable. On the other hand, Rolexes are kind of common and played out, and the Explorer will always be the 'other' Rolex, after the submariner and the GMT master II. Which is totally why I dig the Explorer II. ...Jump to post
