Shortage of Testosterone

Posted on October 23, 2019 by Optimal Health Staff

Hey Humans!

Happy Wednesday.....

The summer is passing quickly and school is about to start. The fall and holiday season is always a busy time at Optimal Health Associates.

I thought I would post a note in regards to a notable drug shortage occurring which will directly affect many of our patients and multiple millions across the country. Injectable TESTOSTERONE will shortly no longer be available for a period estimated to be 3 months but more likely 6 or greater.

The primary substitute will be BioTe Testosterone pellets. The pellets are usually more effective, absolutely more physiologic and consistent with better clinical outcomes.

We will, of course, be monitoring the situation closely. Over the last couple of years, we have had multiple shortages of needed pharmaceuticals. These include....

Armour Thyroid
Nature’s Thyroid
Westhroid
Lidocaine with epi
Bicarbonate
Evamist
Estragel
Elestrin
Doxycycline

Such is life in these United States. I could explain in detail how the Affordable Care Act destroyed the generic manufacturing of drugs. But what is done is done.

All the best!

Vaccinate!

Posted on April 28, 2019 by Dr. Noel R. Williams

Humans....

Happy Saturday!

I will be posting on Pap smears and cervical cancer screening tomorrow but I can’t help but editorialize a bit on vaccines right now. The meme from the satirical website “THE ONION” summarizes it best. The uninformed, fearful and selfish do not get vaccinated. This may offend some of you. If it does.... be offended. It is because of the rest of us, who are vaccinated, who have vaccinated our children that the entire COMMUNITY has better health and survival. The recurrence of measles and whooping cough illustrate the effects of the diminishment of vaccinations and the national disaster of poor immigration policy (more unvaccinated people... who don’t receive vaccines at entry). In 2000 measles was declared eradicated in this country. No longer.....We will break at least a 1000 cases this year perhaps 2000. This will result in a significant number of permanent disabilities, preventable embryonic injuries and finally child/adult mortalities across our entire population.

Completely preventable with a safe, easy intervention... the MMR vaccine. Don’t be foolish, vaccinate your children, make sure you still have immunity. Keep in mind if you’ve had a baby in the last 30 yrs your obstetrician checked your measles status and vaccinated after delivery if your immunity had waned. That’s what us responsible OB/GYNs do😀!

All the best,

Noel
