Here is the deal. I have a normal facebook feed. I’ve posted just enough stuff so that they know, if they are curious or concerned about themselves or someone else, they can contact me or my digital publishers who I also promote, because they know more than I do. Even after twenty five years. IBPF’s free downloadable book, “healthy living with bipolar disorder’ takes an unflinching, unmoralizing look at many aspects of the illnesses that drug company sponsored websites just plain ignore.
But there is new stuff on the horizon. The wave of increasing numbers of obese and overweight in our nation has partly to do with all the psych meds that affect our hunger, cravings and metabolism rates and I’m researching this subject so I can write an informed blog with links called “Meeting Metabolism slowdown Head on.” That will help people. There are advances in the medication of people with metabolic disorder or prediabetes conditions, the FDA just approved another drug last week. There is beginning to be a proactive movement to combat this problem. But I know some other stuff, some wholistic stuff that can help beyond ‘diet and exercise’ stuff that is really frustrating to many of us. So that’s one issue of research that is multi pronged because apparently the meds I’m referring to cause physical changes in our pancreas. But I want to research this more before I print it. I just wanted you to know that this page is going to be an extension of living healthy with bipolar but more current science than once a year.
Also there is the exploding field of genetics and individual protein enzymes, with which the info will help decide which medication the patient will be more likely to best metabolize, with least side effects and more able to get the benefit. This has been Mayo Clinic’s standard of Care since 2011, along the lines of ALL health problems, not just psych. So why don’t we have it. What’s been holding it up? I want to find out and bring the info to you. It just takes time and I need you to be patient.
