Trump’s 2019 Physical — Cholesterol Levels Are Actually VERY Bad!

by Anura Guruge

The three images that I put together above tell the whole story.

His cholesterol levels are very bad. Yes, his total cholesterol number went down, slightly … BUT …

Here is the KICKER.

After the 2018 physical his statin (anti-cholesterol) medication was increased from 10mg a day to 40mg a day. That is a HUGE increase. With such an increase his total cholesterol number should have come down DRAMATICALLY. It did NOT.

Moreover, BAD cholesterol went UP & his GOOD cholesterol went down. Not good.

On 40mg of Crestor his numbers should have been close to perfect.

If these were my numbers, MY DOCTOR would have an heart attack! They are that bad.

I know about cholesterol, cholesterol medication & cholesterol numbers. I have watched my cholesterol for 40-years & have been on Lipitor (a Crestor equivalent) for 22-years. During all that time my dose has stayed at 10mg.

Here are MY results from 2018. They are NOT great, but a damn sight better than Trump’s. And that is with 10mg of Lipitor. If my dose had been increased to 40mg my total cholesterol number would be in double digits.

Doctors Now Recommending AGAINST Taking Zyrtec Antihistamine DAILY.

by Anura Guruge

Cetirizine Hydrochloride = Brand Name: Zyrtec.


I have been taking 10mg of (generic) Zyrtec, i.e., Cetirizine Hydrochloride, DAILY, without fail (but maybe at most a few times) for 5 years and 8 months; 2089 days.

I would swear by it. I thought it was a miracle drug.

My primary care doctor, at the time, i.e., 2012, had told me that I should do so.

I used to be haunted and plagued with severe bronchitis. At least twice year, once in Spring the other in Fall, bronchitis would cripple me. So, in November 2012, after I nearly DIED from a bout of bronchitis and coughed so hard that I broke a rib, my doctor told me to start taking Zyrtec.

IT WAS MAGIC.

It stopped my bronchitis — dead. I really haven’t had a debilitating attack in those 5.6-years.

I was so happy. I would tell others about it. I had my 12-year old on daily Zyrtec — and her doctor was fine with it.

** ** ** ** ** ** **

Today, I had my dreaded physical. Different doctor, same practice. The other one, who told me to take Zyrtec had left.

This doctor, who I have been seeing for the last 4 years is an Indian, my age and we share a very similar background.

So, he goes through ALL my health woes, my unstoppable weight gain up near the top since some of my other problems can be attributed to it.

He tells me that he is CONVINCED that most of my problems are due to my daily Zyrtec. I spluttered and choked.

He, then, makes it worse.

He said he tried telling me last year at my physical, but when he saw how happy I was with the Zyrtec he decided to wait. BUGGER.

He told me to take 10mg Loratadine (generic Claritin) instead, daily — and ONLY take Zyrtec, occasionally, if the Loratadine “wasn’t cutting it” on days when my allergies were real bad. WOW.

Click to access Wikipedia entry for Anna Teresa Tymieniecka.


First and foremost there are two things wrong with the TITLE of this PBS special. The title for the pope is dead WRONG! He is “Saint Pope John Paul II” or “Pope Saint John Paul II“. It is important that ‘Pope’ is in the title along with Saint. Plus, and this is important, he is NOT, and I REPEAT, NOT “John Paul”. He is, was and will always be “John Paul II“. There is another Pope John Paul who will one day be a Saint. They actually got this pope’s name dead wrong too! When talking about his election in 1978, and then Cardinal Karol Jzef Wojtyla paying his homage to the new pope, they referred to the pope as “John Paul”. NO. He was NEVER, EVER “John Paul”. From the moment he accepted the papacy he was “John Paul I”. These are small but important things that PBS should have got right.

Then the title claims “secrets” — in plural. But from what I can see this program is all about his relationship with Polish Anna Teresa Tymieniecka (who by the way had a Hanover, New Hampshire connection). The program tries to insinuate that it was a platonic relationship with no physical element. But there is no proof either way. Plus popes are notorious for their scandalous very intimate relationship with women, married women as well, over the millennia. So in the scheme of things this is not such a big deal.

What would have been more interesting is the oft stated belief that the Pope was a widow or a divorcee! He supposedly having been married, young, ahead of WW II.

So bit of a disappointing and tedious program. Just one SECRET and it is not that intriguing unless there is proof that she was actually his mistress in the accepted connotation of such relationships.

As a father of three daughters and a 59-year old, overweight guy who labors 1 1/4 miles up (and then runs down) Prospect Mountain Road (Alton, NH) five to six times a week, wearing 6 pounds of wrist weights, I was conflicted when I read this article in yesterday’s ‘Laconia Daily Sun‘.
