Subject: Re: [ferrethealth] Lupron vs Surgery
Message-ID: <>

Patrick, We have a male with insulinoma and is adrenal. He was never a
surgical candidate due to his health. We have been giving him lupron
shots once a month for over a year now, as well are using Pred each
day. The lupron has helped control the symptoms very well but of
course, does not stop the advance of the illnesses. I feel that by
doing this, we have helped him to have a much better quality of life,
which was our main goal.
