Went for a few routine tests namely CBP , LFT and RFT on 23rd Jan 2018 and noticed that my Globulin Serum had further increased from 3.8 (Nov 2017) to 4.0 . I was a little worried and expressed the same to Dr Nithin , my Ayurvedic Doctor who then changed my medication from Turmeric to Curcumin. I was advised to use Turmeric instead of Curcumin , for a few months during the later part of 2017.
I guess it was too early for me to make the change from Curcumin to Turmeric . Curcumin is an extract from Turmeric and hence more powerful. It is the Curcuminiods in Turmeric which are effective in the activation of Apoptosis (cell death) in the cells.
It is now one month since I changed back to Curcumin. Meanwhile I was down with Sore throat and took Antibiotics during first week of Feb 2018. I discussed with Dr Nithin and he decided to increase the dosage of Curcumin (500mg) from 3 caps / 3 times a day to 4 caps / 3 times a day . Ashwagandha (500mg) was also increased from 2 caps / 2 times a day to 2 caps / 3 times a day.
Its been a month since my last tests and hence went for the routine tests yesterday. The reports were very good. All parameters were normal .
Hb is 11.2
Creatinine is .9
ESR is 34 , not yet in the normal range (0 – 20) . Not too bad , it was 65 last month.
Globulin serum is back to the normal range (1.8 – 3.6) . Reduced from 4 to 3.6 .
This is great news 🙂 . This was something that was worrying me. Feeling very happy now 🙂
Dr Nithin also told me to do a test named Metabolic profile c .
Awaiting the results of this test.
