Howdy alf203 (thanks) I had not looked into this one, I thought it might be similar or same as Abiratarone which is like Keto, and 10 times more powerful they claim. Both are used with Prednisone which also could have some strange side effects, some people drop the drug cause side effects bother them and you also need to monitor liver function using this, others say it was not a problem....must vary alot on Keto and HDK useage. In doing Abiratrarone in clinical trials now, you cannot have used Keto prior, is what I thought I read and that kind of thing is common in trials. This drug Abir. might get approved sooner than thought...which would be great. You can google search side effects.
Other info on alternative drug therapies at www.hrpca.org
has many listed.
I am sorry Alf that you got dealt such a difficult level, this may be very useful right now, so let others know the results and possible effects. Always good to hear from a pioneer whom has been there and done that, vs. reading only out of book. I may be taking something like this soon enough with fighting this thing, too. We should look at everything with an open eye and mind.
