But then I used the method of Claire ( not her real name)  but she uses that

name in her blog /article and got herself healed.

 

It should be a good idea to follow one  who has been there & done something that

gave good results.

I followed her method and it worked.

The hardest part is  learn & be gluten-free because gluten antibodies causes HS.

Once you are well you can go back to eating gluten.

Hi Bernie, I managed to find the article and copied into my email so I can print it off later to read. You are a wealth of both information and help - I know I've just said so, but I am ever so grateful.

Lianna, I can't believe that I found this link as I only had the essay in printed form but I did. This is written by Tammie Ferris who I consider a friend though I've never met her. She used to run the HS Hotline and I spoke with her more than once when I was trying to find treatment for HS. She is the one who guided me to the IR and AD aspect of HS. Read this.....it should help you a lot. Your link test"http://forums.horsecity.com/index.php?showtopic=47064237 Hope the link worked. If not search for " Birnbaum Androgen Dysfunction Tammie Ferris " it will be label Long Article. Bernie

 I am a healed case of Hidradenitis or HS.

How did I do it?

 

I’ve tried everything  most HS patients would do but never got the healing, I

   was   frustrated.

 

But then I used the method of Claire ( not her real name)  but she uses that

name in her blog /article and got herself healed.

 

It should be a good idea to follow one  who has been there & done something that

Hi Lizzie, Hirsutism is connected to excess male hormones in women...that was the connection I made that led me to the Spironolactone prescription. The low sugar and weak symptoms point to insulin resistance....make sure your doctor orders a HbA1C blood test. If you are insulin resistant your doctor should start you on medication (I take Metformin). And btw, while some doctors will say a result of 6 on the blood test indicates you are not IR, other doctors would. You might want to do some research on PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome). See if you can find a paper by Dr. Samuel Thatcher called PCOS 101. It was thru his work I made the connections between HS and insulin resistance and androgen levels. Editing this post to add that the paper I referenced above is really titled PCOS: The Hidden Epidemic. Bernie

Thanks Bernie, I think these ideas will help me at my next visit! Just a few questions, did you have hirsutism as well (thats male pattern hair growth)? What about excessive vaginal mucous, was that an issue? I get low sugar and no matter how much I eat always feel "wafery." Not strong, but weak. Did you feel this way? Lizzie

The following link is to an essay written by Tammie Ferris who ran an HS hotline some years ago. She did tremendous research and has written a very easy to understand translation of serious research done by two doctors, Dr. Samuel Thatcher, and Dr. Michael Birnbaum. Please read it. http://forums.horsecity.com/index.php?showtopic=47064237 If you read my profile you'll see I've applied this research to myself and have been in remission for many years. Regards, Bernie

Clinical Trials


Cords registry

CoRDS, or the Coordination of Rare Diseases at Sanford, is based at Sanford Research in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. It provides researchers with a centralized, international patient registry for all rare diseases. This program allows patients and researchers to connect as easily as possible to help advance treatments and cures for rare diseases. The CoRDS team works with patient advocacy groups, individuals and researchers to help in the advancement of research in over 7,000 rare diseases. The registry is free for patients to enroll and researchers to access.

Enrolling is easy.

  1. Complete the screening form.
  2. Review the informed consent.
  3. Answer the permission and data sharing questions.

After these steps, the enrollment process is complete. All other questions are voluntary. However, these questions are important to patients and their families to create awareness as well as to researchers to study rare diseases. This is why we ask our participants to update their information annually or anytime changes to their information occur.

Researchers can contact CoRDS to determine if the registry contains participants with the rare disease they are researching. If the researcher determines there is a sufficient number of participants or data on the rare disease of interest within the registry, the researcher can apply for access. Upon approval from the CoRDS Scientific Advisory Board, CoRDS staff will reach out to participants on behalf of the researcher. It is then up to the participant to determine if they would like to join the study.

Visit sanfordresearch.org/CoRDS to enroll.
