Top Sexual Medicine Doc treats POIS
« on: November 08, 2017, 02:10:58 PM »
I have something great to announce to the forum. In 2 weeks I have a big phone meeting with the top Sexual Medicine Doctor in the world. Yes the world! And he knows about and treats POIS! I am going to try to get him to agree to do a study and talk to him about testing and maybe even speaking to the group if enough people can participate! Anything you all want me to ask then comment below!!

Also I spoke to the person who runs his office and she said a study on the level we need can't be done for $30,000. They said to save money we might just have to all go there, be tested and then just do a retrospective study on our results.  I will talk to him about this. I will get a list of all the specialized testing he runs. He does not take insurance so I will also get a list of the costs. I don't plan to personally see him because I have other illnesses preventing me from traveling.

He is an American Urologist who deals with every kind of sexual disorder male or female including POIS. I want to get his permission to give out his name first and also to see if I like him. All I spoke to was his office manager. Sounds like he has a large practice and people travel to him from all over the world for for other illness. So I will update after our phone meeting in 2 weeks.

Just curious why he wouldn’t want his name revealed if he’s the top sexual health doctor in the world.

Excellent question, Limejuice.

Usually have major POIS-reduction, treatment consisting of daily (365 days/year) testosterone patches.

TRT must be checked out carefully with your doctor due to fertility, cardiac and other risks associated with it.

40+ years of severe 4-days-POIS, married, raised a family, started/ran a business.

Thank you for asking, CP2

It's a good thing to see another doctor interested by our condition :)
But I am a little skeptical. In a first time, you have to see if this doctor can help your personal set of symptoms. We have hundreds of guys here with different sets of symptoms and "remedies".

Thanks for sharing, Disaster, and keep us informed.

Even if $30000 is not a lot in the research world, it wold be great f this doctor would make the commitment to do a small POIS study and publish it.  This would help to put POIS on the medical research map.

I agree with Quantum. And I would add that $30,000 is not much in the world of medical research, but I suggest that it’s a HUGE accomplishment for a rare, self-funded disorder such as ours.

I don't understand why you all can't be patient and wait. Smh. I want to make sure I like the guy otherwise I don't want to help his medical practice in any way by having people go to him. I have questions and since I am calling on the behalf of our entire illness community I want to see how much time he will take in addressing my questions. He know Barry from the Rutgers study and he apparently treats POIS patients in his practice already. So why hasn't he started a POIS study already? His office manager explained it a little, but I would rather hear all the answer from the doctor.

I don't know is he will consider doing a smaller study for $30,000 especially after The Rutgers experience. Also I want to hear his take on the Rutgers study. I think it was a waste of money and bad theory. And it ultimately wasted our times so I wasn't so far off.

I want there to be basic testing done. Bloodwork is the natural place to start, most likely male sexual hormones. After that basic anatomical testing is the next logical step. I think ultrasounds before, during and after done on all related male sexual parts including the prostate, blood flow into organs, testicles, groin, lymph system, heart, sinus, etc. very low budget.

The office managers claim is that advertising for the study is expensive. I want to see what the doctors take is. Are they looking to make money off this study or are they serious about helping us find a cure.

Lastly I might set up a POIS medical board so that we don't have to run studies approval through NORD. I would rather have Sexual Medicine Experts decide on studies along with a competent patient Board. The problem is that the office manager told me the sexual medicine community is a small close knit group so off course they will approve each other's research proposals.

Anyway it's more complex then just finding the top Sexual Doctors. I could list 30 top Sexual Doctors just below this one. It's getting them to have the right mind set and be willing to really help us not just help themselves..

I think the focus should be #1 on inflammation.  I believe that is the source of this issue.  Many people helped by ibuprofen, antihistamines, niacin, diet... They all seem to link inflammation in some shape or form.  So inflammatory biomarkers -> hinting at the source of inflammation which may vary from person to person.
My POIS 100% managed with modified Paleo Diet (@ diet that 100% manages my pois)Believe my POIS stems from inflammation in the gut. O and stimulation = neuro POIS from diverted inflammation from the gut. Can O freely. Supplements: currently only chamomile tea, experimenting

Going Less Crazy. I personally have Autoimmune disease, but by going straight to what a patient or even 1 doctor theorizes is not how you conduct research. You start with the basics because it is the first of all the cheapest cost and you might get lucky and spot an abnormal testing in all patients. Then you work your way to basic anatomical changes. For example in Rheumatoid Arthritis they do simple X-rays. In heart disease they do simple ultrasounds. All the cheapest first to detect changes. Then later you move on to more complex testing like like complex blood testing. Then you move on to biopsies and other invasive testing. The more complex and rare the testing is the more expensive that research is. For example certain Autoimmune tests like for Lambert Eaton Myasthenia, just one Autoimmune antibody blood test is over $1,500. Multiply that cost by 100 because researchers won't know which antibodies to look for and that $30,000 is gone on one patient.

So need to cross off basic land cheap research to justify more expensive and complex research..

I think it is a matter of raising awareness even further. I estimate the number of POIS patients worldwide to be over 100,000. In America maybe 35,000. Probably about 750 -1,000 who have it know what POIS is. And I have yet to meet a doctor that heard of it besides this one doctor I am about to talk to. And I am not sure just how much he really knows about it.

Why do you think Antihistamine, Niacin and diet translate to inflammation? Also inflammation never leads to a cause it is just a symptom. Almost every illness known to man causes inflammation but steroids and NSAIDS besides being terrible longterm doesn't cure all disease. Someone can have a tapeworm, a fungal infection, a bacterial infection, an Autoimmune illness or Lyme disease and they will all be positive for inflammation... just saying

Look at inflammation and see if the source (cause) of it can be found through tests or whatever... sorry if I screwed up on my point since I'm typing cellularly. The source can be different from person to person. IMO all these treatments seem to link inflammation in some shape or form and the cause is yet to be found in many of you.  Just my opinion.  Inflammation can lead to a cause if you figure out you have it, than go through all of your options from there to see if your inflammatory biomarkers go down.

But I don't know how research is done so just disregard my posts.
