Wife's friend is going through a contentious divorce with a POS buy-side guy from Incline (Lake Tahoe). He's fighting for custody of the four kids and has cut-off all cash. She has been forced to sell her jewelry and the second car for living expenses and owes her D-attorney $60K. The stress has been overwhelming. She is addicted to benzos and is a manic depressive. My wife and I stayed over one night when the mom had to travel to UCSF for a cardiology appt. My wife was cooking for the kids and I was doing an oil change on her Rover (had 1qt in the pan!). Now, I hadn't seen the woman for perhaps six months and I could not believe her condition; CHF, 200/120bp, ankles the diameter of her calves; ortho-hypotension, ARF--urinating every 30-40 minutes. She flies to UCSF and wife stays over for the kids. She flies back three days later after being admitted for the CHF and edema. She get the Acuson US and her LVEF reads 16. She AMAs and flies home. Ostensibly she's going to see her kids and admit locally in Reno or Tahoe Forest. I pick her up at the airport and we talk about my grad-school emphasis (ubiquinone). I tell her about the UTA program and that I recommend large doses of CoQ10 for the ARF, CHF/CM, BP and edema. I stop by Vitamin Shoppe and buy her the 400mg sofgels and tell her to take two/day (800mg) before 10am. I told her the immediate reduction in symptoms will be a reduction in edema. Greater output but then less frequency once the edema corrects. A 20-30% reduction in BP. That was a week ago. Her edema is gone. She walked a mile today. BP is 165/95. She has yet to get another US but she went to be admitted at Renown in Reno and they saw no need to admit for observation. The head of cardiology told her to increase the CoQ10 to 1200mg and asked for my number. lol.
