  7. Oh, really, I thought that was his accepted nickname. Oh, and by the way, sorry to have confused you even further, but I am neither an FBI agent, nor did I say I was, that was a quote from the Washington Post--as cited. ahhh, ok i mis assumed you were former fbi since theres a wealth of former special forces, navy seals, mi5/6, and delta force and sas living in thailand.
  8. your post especially as a former fbi agent would have more credibility had you not included the pejorative term "dotard" as it could be perceived you are biased. the dictator kim un coined that term so it is surprising an fbi agent would lend credence to an iron fisted murderer by quoting him.

  11. i looked current therapy and it would appear beta blockers can be used for faster symptomatic relief until the thyroid medicine brings function to normal levels Treatment of hyperthyroidism includes symptom relief, as well as therapy with antithyroid medications, radioactive iodine-131 (131I), or thyroidectomy. Symptomatic treatment is as follows: Oral rehydration for dehydrated patients Beta-blockers for relief of neurologic and cardiovascular symptoms For mild ophthalmopathy, saline eye drops as needed and tight-fitting sunglasses for outdoors For vision-threatening ophthalmopathy, high-dose glucocorticoids, with consideration for orbital decompression surgery and ocular radiation therap https://www.medscape.com/answers/121865-25161/what-are-the-treatment-options-for-hyperthyroidism Use of beta-adrenoceptor blocking drugs in hyperthyroidism. Feely J, Peden N. Abstract There is an increasing use and variety of beta-adrenoceptor blocking agents (beta-blockers) available for the treatment of hyperthyroidism. Recent comparative studies suggest that atenolol (200mg daily), metoprolol (200mg daily); acebutolol (400mg daily), oxprenolol ( 160mg daily), nadolol ( 80mg daily) and timolol (20mg daily) produce a beneficial clinical response equal to that seen with propranolol ( 160mg daily). Most beta-blockers reduce resting heart rate by approximately 25 to 30 beats/min, although a lesser reduction is seen with those possessing intrinsic sympathomimetic activity such as oxprenolol and pindolol. While earlier studies employing large doses of intravenous propranolol concluded that beta-blockade reduced myocardial contractility, more recent non-invasive studies suggest that the predominant cardiac effect is on heart rate. In patients with cardiac failure, beta-blockers may, however, produce a profound fall in cardiac output. Nevertheless, in combination with digoxin they may be useful in controlling the atrial fibrillation of thyrocardiac disease. beta-Blockers improve nervousness and tremor (although to a lesser extent with cardioselective agents) and severe myopathy, and they also reduce the frequency of paralysis in patients with thyrotoxic periodic paralysis. There is often subjective improvement in sweating but usually no major effect on eye signs. Recent studies show a 10% reduction in oxygen consumption/basal metabolic rate with long term oral use of selective or nonselective beta-blockers. In addition, many agents (propranolol, metoprolol, nadolol and sotalol but not acebutolol, atenolol or oxprenolol) reduce circulating tri-iodothyronine (T3) concentration by between 10 and 40%, although the clinical significance of this effect (if any) is not established. beta-Blockers may also have endocrinological effects on gastrin, cyclic AMP, catecholamines and other hormone levels. Given in adequate dosage, propranolol has been shown to control thyrotoxic hypercalcaemia. Minor side effects (nausea, headaches, tiredness, etc.) are quite common but overall beta-blockers are well tolerated by the thyrotoxic patient. The major use of these drugs is in symptomatic control while awaiting definitive diagnosis or treatment. As an adjunct to antithyroid drugs or radioactive iodine, beta-blockers will produce a satisfactory clinical response in the weeks to months before these forms of therapy produce a euthyroid state. beta-Blockers are more convenient than antithyroid drugs in the control of patients receiving therapeutic radioiodine, in that continuous therapy and assessment of biochemical response is possible.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 400 WORDS).

  12. Sure, a doctor at Samitivej who saw a close friend of mine who was having spontaneous and persistent arrhythmias. The doctor 'suggested' 15000 THB of tests, and then said he did not know what was causing it. Just like that, 'I don't know, goodbye'. On his way out, my friend was intercepted by the same doctor who wanted to do 'just 1 more blood test', which proved positive for hyperthyroid. Given the symptoms profile as reported, that should have been the first test, Then, he prescribed a medication for the hyperthyroid and another for the arrhythmia (a beta blocker), which were contraindicated so the doctor had to recall the prescription and medicines and re-prescribe a different thyroid medication. what was name of arrhythmia? was friend having it while at hospital? some arrhythmias are associated with hyperthyroidism but many are not if 12 lead ekg is ok then usually a holter monitor is done to record what is wrong and when thyroid is easy cheap test but not all hyperthyroid people have the same arrhythmia as some can have other or in addition to abnormalities. an echocardiogram(sono) is not such a bad test in addition to simpler ones especially in aging people. profit factor is very strong at private hospitals. cannot say profit factor is weak at usa hospitals either as studies show the well insured get the most tests. also anyone that trained in usa learns to do defensive practice though not cost effective.
  13. The safe bet is 500 thb fine because she is of the chosen people. you forgot to add "master race"
  14. can you cite specific examples?

    Best option for flying to Phnom Penh or Siem Reap

    siem reap by land is not that bad after you factor in time to airport, security, immigration waiting, delays. theres a big bus that departs from mauchit station (can buy tickets at ekamai station) trip to cambo is painless. they give baggage receipt. can leave luggage on bus and just do thai exit and cambo entry and board same bus to siem reap. bus company provides free tuk tuk to your siem reap hotel. also give lunch included and water. about 700 baht
