Vitamins for Cardiac patient

Posted by Eightieschild @pamelacelia, Mar 25 7:57pm

Hello, I hope everyone is keeping well. My father has been diagnosed with clogged arteries, he's awaiting triple bypass surgery, with the Covid-19 virus pandemic I'm very afraid for him, can anyone tell me, is there any vitamins he can use to help build his immune system? He doesn't smoke or drink, he doesn't have any health issues aside from the clogged arteries.

@eightieschild Welcome to connect a caring bunch of people.I had a triple by pass 24 yrs ago.Immune support vitamins C D3,zinc how old is your Dad might I ask.Vit.E also exercise and healthy diet. Good luck to your Dad .

Hello, he is 64, he cut out all dairy, gives him heartburn and hardly eats meat, more veggies, I want to make sure he can take vit c in conjunction with the other medications he's using, vastarel, gtn, aspirin, pantecta, and a few others I don't remember off hand.

@pamelacelia I would suggest talk to his Pharmacist, that's usually where even Doctors go when it comes to Meds working together.

lioness, check the form of each vitamin and mineral in your 100%. B1 requires the enzymes created with magnesium to become active. If the form of magnesium is oxide you will absorb between 6 to 10 percent, not enough for adequate enzymes since it's also balancing calcium. There is an impressive list of benefits for Selenium, check it's effect on viruses, so the amount in multi's is minimal. A couple of Brazil nuts a day will serve you better. Dr Atkins in 1998 wrote Dr. Atkins Vita- Nutrient Solutions. It's on Amazon. It's easy to understand and guides the reader to better nutrition. You want to be sure each dollar spent on a product or food gives you a full return for your health. .

Hello all, today is Friday morning 3/27/20 and I am on my way to a local urgent care as I have a urinary tract infection and possible the right kidney is affected as it is painful. Must be so very careful to prevent getting this Corona virus. I must take my chances because the last time I had a Urine Track infection it became septicemia so I must go. Need to be on antibiotics and whatever else. Will kiss my pets and be on my way.

If only I could wave a wand and make this all go away so all of us could deal with the conditions we have. Since I can't, I will say this prayer to get us through this…. It doesn't matter if you are a believer in prayer or not, the prayer is there for you. God preserve all of you, Amen.

I am home now. The wonderful place I went to saw me, appraised my health issues gave me a shot in my tuckas and not only that: LISTEN TO THIS: They sent a person to the nearest Publix and picked up my medicine that they prescribed for me and gave it to me to bring home. I then called the para-transit to bring me home, Wonder of wonders. THIS IS AMERICA WORKING TOGETHER WITH CARING AND LOVING. We must salute all the front line workers. Thank you god.

@peach414144 yes that's one thing I always remember Americans stick together in a crisis, I remember 911 for the same thing. We can be a strange bunch but when the going gets tough you can count on Neighbors being good to each other
