Trump's medical exam accidently revealed that he's gravely ill. Like... seriously ill.

https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2019/2/15/1834996/-Is-the-President-s-liver-failing?utm_campaign=recent

The President is prescribed 40 mg Rosuvastatin per day, the maximum dosage. Rosuvastatin is mainly an anti-cholesterol medication, but also reduces inflammation and lowers blood-pressure.

But... (here comes the but)

BUT for patients older than 70 (Trump is 72) such a high dosage damages the liver and is lethal in the long term. And a Rosuvastatin-treatment has very little effect if the patient refuses to go on a low-fat diet.

So, why is he still getting the maximum dosage of Rosuvastatin? That's the big question. There are three possible explanations:



Possible Explanation 1: Trump is battling dangerously high levels of cholesterol.

His doctor figured that destroying his liver in the long term is worth it if he can prevent Trump from dying from too much cholesterol in the short term.



Possible Explanation 2: Trump has a heart disease.

Rosuvastatin reduces inflammation. One possible source of inflammation is a heart-disease. A heart-disease serious enough to risk destroying his liver.



Possible Explanation 3: Rosuvastatin is an early-stage treatment for Alzheimer's disease.

Additionally to its main uses, it has recently been discovered that Rosuvastatin can also be used to delay the onset of Alzheimer's disease. Alzheimer's serious enough to risk destroying his liver.





TL;DR
There is no fucking way Trump is possibly healthy. There is some serious shit going on and his doctors refuse to tell the people what is going on.

11. Rosuvastatin

or Crestor

Oh boy, he could have a damaged liver. Maybe that's why he has a fake tan.


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rosuvastatin


He could be overdosing himself on the dose too. Plus what he eats isn't low fat which the dr. recommended.

Read this: Side effects and contraindications[edit]

Side effects are uncommon. The following side effects should be reported to the prescribing doctor if they persist or get worse:[11]

constipation
heartburn
dizziness
sleeplessness
depression
joint pain
cough
memory loss or forgetfulness
confusion

The following rare side effects are more serious. Like all statins, rosuvastatin can possibly cause myopathy, rhabdomyolysis. Stop taking rosuvastatin and contact the prescribing doctor if any of these occur:[11][12]

muscle pain, tenderness, or weakness
lack of energy
fever
chest pain
jaundice: yellowing of the skin or eyes
dark colored, or foamy urine
pain in the upper right part of the abdomen
nausea
extreme tiredness
weakness
unusual bleeding or bruising
loss of appetite
flu-like symptoms
sore throat, chills, or other signs of infection

If any signs of an allergic reaction develop, contact an emergency medical service immediately:[12]
rash
hives
itching
difficulty breathing or swallowing
swelling of the face, throat, tongue, lips, eyes, hands, feet, ankles, or lower legs
hoarseness
numbness or tingling in fingers or toes


Bingo, Jaundice that could definitely be a reason why he spray tans. Oh boy he is physically nor mentally well.

160. ..."swelling of the face, throat, tongue, lips...."

This could explain his slurring of words, and those funny sounds that sometimes spring forth when he's attempting to talk.

It could be any one of a hundred things though. The man has no business being in any position that requires split-second decision making skills. The only jobs for which he's suitable would be crash test dummy, speed bump, or a bookend in the library.

runny nose (seen to occur during some of his speeches on TV) [oops: noted by others before me -- apologies]
blurred vision (perhaps caused trouble reading teleprompter and notes during some of his speeches)
loss of interest (doesn't want briefings)
loss of pleasure
trouble concentrating

81. nope.....

pelosi would stay on as speaker, but would be the defacto president if pence left office before a new vp was chosen.

Pence, once president would get to nominate a vp, just like any other open position requiring confirmation. But in the case of a vp, the person would need to be confirmed by both the house and the senate.

So the house would get to hold confirmation hearings and they would need a majority of members to confirm the nominee. The senate alone can't confirm a vp.

Which could also explain his speech issues - like he is struggling through lock jaw.

"There are several ways that carotid artery disease can cause a stroke: Narrowed carotid arteries may not supply enough blood to the brain. A piece of plaque can break off and lodge in one of the smaller arteries of your brain, blocking blood flow. Blood clots can form in your carotid artery, blocking blood flow." https://www.healthline.com/health/carotid-artery-disease

Regardless to the type, maker, or dosage are pure and absolute POISON to the human body. Big Pharma has US consumers convinced that the only way to reduce inflammation, coronary artery disease, heart disease, high cholesterol,...etc.,...is to take one or better yet MANY of their poisonous drugs. If he is on the highest dosage of any statin allowed, he not only is seriously ill, but at serious risk of numerous system failures, the least of which is his liver.

I'm speaking from experience, having been on a very high dosage of a statin that was never reduced over time, even when my total blood cholesterol dropped to 65! Subsequently I developed Rhabdomyolosis and damn near died!

Sure, the Left will discuss this here, and it is a grave health situation for our President that should be huge news. But the difference is that if this had been Hillary or Bill taking 40 mg of Crestor the Right Wing Media (FOX) would have 24 hour a day coverage with a full roster of experts talking about what 40 mg of Crestor daily means. The entire country would be talking about it.

The left simply won't go there, because we're still bound by the rules of common decency even though this is very clearly a huge story that should be getting a lot of coverage.

Every time I see anything about his health, I feel inspired to do more cardio exercise. I'm going to make grilled salmon and sauteed vegetables in avocado oil for dinner today. I don't ever want to end up as fat as him.

132. I workout every other day. But I do love my comfort food.

I am a southerner, I guess some bad things are hard to shake.

Your meal sounds great though. I have never had the patience to infuse oil, I just buy it already done.

108. Well, his lifestyle and his obvious cognitive impairment would make the drug indicated.

For some anecdotal information, my 85+ mother had never had any problems with high cholesterol, but she did have significant cognitive issues the last five to seven years of her life. Her doctor had told me her cholesterol levels were those of a person in his early twenties who had never been allowed to eat junk food on a regular basis, so when he prescribed simvastatin for her, I balked. He told me that the statin drugs are indicated where cognitive impairment is present. As far as I could see, it did nothing positive for her and it made her muscles ache and weakened them to the point that she required a wheelchair to move around after about eight or nine months on the drug. Frankly, after her issues with a statin I will refuse to accept a prescription for them for myself and I would seriously warn others about using them, especially if they aren't at an advanced age, and if they start to have issues with muscle weakness or pain to notify their prescribing physician STAT and stop using them.

109. Not long after his election I dabbed orange marker on a packing peanut and stuck pins in it

I will concentrate on the liver and brain. One can hope. I’d do non stop incantations if it would help him keel over

119. With such a high dosage of this Rosuvastatin

 

seems like a Heart Ultrasound would have been performed? That is a pretty high dosage when 10mg is average

So Explanation 3 makes a lot of sense.

150. I take 40mg a day.

Some of us are just genetically prone to high cholesterol.

My dad lived a little over 3 months shy of 92 and took the same dosage I and apparently, Trump take. Neither of us had or have Alzheimer's disease that I am aware of.

129. I'm hoping the answer is "all of the above"...

Sorry, I know it's bad taste to wish harm to anyone...but since this is self inflicted, and his time in the White House is a complete threat to the entire world...yeah, I'm hoping it's all of the above. After this life, I'm also hoping hell has a nice not spot set aside for him and most of his administration and family as well.

Damn...I've turned really evil in the past two years. Wonder why...?

153. This thread is wishful thinking. This statin drug is NO BIG DEAL.

As are any of the other statins that people of an age take. Those side-effects are only possible side effects and probably occurred very rarely in trials. This drug wouldn't be as widely distributed if it was so dangerous.

154. Medical balancing act

Most doctors are aware of possible long term negative side effects of the stuff they prescribe.

In Trump's case, short term benefits far outweigh long term complications, because at age 72, 'long term' is relatively meaningless.

Doctors are going to take less notice with Trump than if they were prescribing the same drug for long term use by a 20 year old, for instance.

The drugs he is on for his hair loss, his cholesterol, and probably for other things as well, are keeping him moving. For a 72 year old, he has a fairly active schedule - most 72 year olds are probably more inclined to NOT take plane journeys, or address big crowds.

But the long term effect of short term help from drugs? When the final collapse comes, it will be a big one.
Don't be surprised if you wake up one day, and hear on the news that Trump didn't.
