  1. My fasting level has been between 99 and 104 for the past 5 or so years. No idea before that. I am already very active as I row an average of 5 kms a day and that has had no impact on blood sugar levels. I have reduced my carb intake too, but again, no difference.
  2. I just recalled a term we used to use back when I was a kid more than 40 years ago, which seems a more accurate description (although it had a different meaning then) = Gender Bender.
  3. A very interesting article: https://wjmh.org/DOIx.php?id=10.5534/wjmh.190076
  4. The tax payer ID update was a clusterf*&k for me. The local tax office (Prakanong) was adamant that it could not be done. Wasted half a day for nothing. In the end when I submitted my next Por Ngor Dor 91, I just used my Thai ID card number and everything was okay. Used my that number ever since with no problem. It seems it was automatically linked to my former tax payer ID no. anyway.
  5. What were the negative outcomes from Rezum apart from the need to use a catheter for a few days (they often failed to mention this when this treatment started to take off), potential higher risk of infection due the the presence of dead tissue while the body has not yet absorbed the same, and the small risk of retrograde ejaculation or erectile disfunction (much smaller than TURP and GreenLight laser). Must admit that I have not looked into aquablation as a treatment.
  6. Interesting, but I wonder how long it lasts. From the little I have read on the subject, there would be up to a 30 percent chance of narrowing happening if the stent is not permanent (like a balloon), which seems to be the case with this treatment. This is unlike procedures that result in the removal of tissue. Having said that, I would like to avoid TURP, for a number of reasons, including those just touched on in the podcast. In the meantime, I will continue to look into Rezum in Australia, which seems to be the most cost effective place to do it. Hopefully, sometime next year
