- Can i connect by email with other patients that have hypoglycemia and stevens-johnson syndrome? (1 answer)
I have had hypoglycemia since childhood, and I have managed it easily until just this weekend. I got S-J two years ago from Bactrim. As I have healed from S-J very slowly and painfully, I was exercising hard, and working hard and slipped a little on not eating enough protein. I started dropping into sugar blackouts and it scared the crap out of me! Still working at being able to eat enough to straighten out low sugar levels. Any suggestions helpful, Thanks, Leann

- Aleve and erythema multiforme
I started exercising (walking outside)and due to sore knees I started taking Aleve. Within days I developed blisters on my chest, back, face, and inside my mouth. Mouth blisters were severe enough that I could only consume liquids. After 7-10 days the blisters scabbed over. This occurred three times within a two month period, the last time I had blisters around my eyes with physician concern of eye involvement but it did not happen. During the second round I went to a dermatologist and he determined that I had Erythema Multiforme and the cause was either a strep throat or Aleve. A second opinion determined it was Aleve partly because strep throat is not normally associated with EM. I have stopped taking Aleve and am EM free for 15 months.

I was given a 3 day course of Trimethoprim for a UTI last thursday after teethe first day I woke the next morning with excruciating pain down one side of my tongue and throat. I was surprised I had a throat infection while taking antibiotics. I continued to take the pills but the swelling pain and soreness of my tongue and throat became more severe. On saturday I went to see the out of hours GP who told me not to take the last tablet………..he said I was either having an allergic reaction, or a severe bout of thrush or I had another infection. He gave me something for thrush. Within minutes of using it my body was bright red, hot and itchy. My tongue and throat has continued to get worse. I have only been able to eat smooth soup and porridge since the inset and I've been feeling quite unwell. I went back to my usual GP this morning who took one look at my tongue and said it was SJS. For the moment I have a mouth wash, I'll see how it goes………..if I get a UTI again, I'll seek a natural treatment.

My partner and I have been assisting hundreds of people in many countries around the world using the Lifewave Glutathione patches with great success for various conditions. These are Non Transdermal patches (Nothing ingested or induced into the body), that communicate with the body with Infra Red light to produce a continual highly raised level of Glutathione. There have been no known negative side effects other than in some cases the adhesive may cause a minor rash and if concerned the patches can be applied with a suitable medical tape or placed on the clothing. The patches can produce nausea initially because of the powerful detox effects but this usually passes quite quickly once the body adjusts. Drinking extra water also helps ease the nausea and improve the results with the patches. If the initial nausea is too uncomfortable the patches can be removed for a time to allow the body to adjust. The patches far more effective than any other know method to raise glutathione levels, are low in cost and easy for anyone to use. While raising the Glutathione levels and creating a safe detox the patches also create a huge boost to the immune system. The patches are extensively clinically studied and researched to confirm their effectiveness.
We are seeking feedback from various sources and notice many in this forum have been using various methods to raise Glutathione levels with varying results. We would welcome any response from people that have been using the Lifewave patches toward some guidance for various conditions. email@example.com (M age 72, Adelaide, Australia)
