I agree it is important that people understand that any drug treatment has some risks attached to it. However to avoid unnecessarily alarming those seeking or undergoing treatment we need to be mindful of how significant those risks are and careful to explain what the actual figures mean.

The "fungal infections" is listed in a group of side effects that are present in less than 3% of trial subjects and in all instances of these trials the Sovaldi was used in combination with Ribavirin +/- Interferon. It may still be applicable to members and guests of this site even if few are using these combinations but there is absolutely no evidence presented in the attached documents to confirm that.

The "6% blood sugar >250 (13.9)" is in one arm of the trials and is at least three times the levels of the other four arms. That particular arm is marked as PBO . So I checked what that meant and page 8 states "71 subjects who received placebo (PBO) for 12 weeks."

Retinal detachment is a known risk associated with Peg/Riba treatment, to the extent that I was required to have an eye exam prior to participation in a clinical trial where I would receive that combination. Do you have any evidence to support its occurrence when using DAAs only?

Re oral thrush section: that topic went off on a tangent and I have interest in sharing real information about oral thrush not caused by ANYTHING except meds

*I DO NOT HAVE any illness that causes oral thrush.

*So here are the strategies I used, as a person with NO OTHER FACTORS to fix the thrush:

*Himalayan salt gargle
*Apple cider vinegar swill (it's not very nice but works)
*Daktarin gel in morning
*Fungilin lozenges I took were okay but I am still maintaining a regime of the salt gargle.
*I'm far past writing up my diet (farm organic blah blah blah)

My GP is involved so I am okay for medical advice about my body. (So please rest assured that this post is simply to try to help anyone who might have uncomfortable oral thrush)

I was dealing with five years of chemicals being put into me, that is all. It can cause imbalances in the pH etc.

I hope that I have helped anyone who simply has mouth thrush from lots of tx over the years

I'd say having Oral Thrush is evidence enough.

You reminded me to mention:
(And maybe this too could relieve anxiety for someone with this sx alone) because post DAAs everything else seems A1 here :)

*My GP said it can take a while to clear and not to stress and I saw him two days ago for a check up. I told him re salt and vinegar all good.

*It took about four to eight weeks to resolve for me but I had let it go; not knowing what it was because I am desensitised by old tx sx. Silly me :)

Stay away from sugary drinks too of course still :)

I don't know about the best. As far as accuracy is concerned, however, this one diabetes patients took 10 meters and measured the accuracy of each to see which one is the best. You can check it out at best blood glucose meter .

Welcome Steve67,

As you say, the test was conducted by only one diabetic patient and reading through the article I found this disclaimer.

"Nonetheless, do take into account that these numbers come from the measurements of Chris Hannenmann, a diabetes patient, and cannot be regarded as a scientific proof."


My recommendation would be that anyone who suspects they may have symptoms of diabetes per this thread should see their doctor for a diagnosis rather than purchasing a meter. Most doctors will already have or will have access to a meter which will avoid what will turn out to be unnecessary expenditure if you aren't diabetic. When you are diagnosed diabetic seems like the best time to start researching the most suitable meter for your own use.

You are 100% right but do the doctors know which glucometers have the highest accuracy? Its there some data on the meters - after all, we're doing the evidence based medicine but I didn't find any official test or clinical studies that would support why a doctor would think this one or that one meter was the best, as per accuracy.

Basically, what do doctors have going for them to know the accuracy of the meters?
