Re: Slightly tenuous question.....

Yeah, I mean naturally occuring testosterone. Its basically a steroid as you say. It is a sex-hormone but it also assists with physical development and some think it affects cerebral development. High-T individuals show tendencies for risk taking and dominance but also according to a theory called r...

Slightly tenuous question.....

I think the answer is no or nobody knows but if you don't ask..... Testosterone is a hormone which varies in amounts from person to person. I know that high levels of testosterone can suppress the immune system and high-t individuals tend to carry a high parasite burden. Does anyone know of a link w...

Re: Unable to to wear contact lenses.

Lynn, so glad you pointed that out about the lenses. They will not stop progression but they are the best option if you can make it happen. The main thing is try different techniques and lenses at first. That's certainly what I tried. I also found this time of year is pretty pants if you have hayfev...

Re: Q for graftees - eye drops

Hi, I've been on Maxidex since my PK in November. The doctor is very relctant to stop prescribing them, although I also react badly to the drops with bad congestion and nose bleeds.

Re: which KC symptom that affects you the most?

I would say the dependence on lenses because I just don't get on with them. So you get 'what the world could look like' and then the pain, discomfort and finally the 'back to bad vision' phases :x Hopefully the graft will sort all that out once it starts to improve my vision. I do hate the photophob...
