  • From this study (8 months ago):

  • I've lost 70 lbs in two years, 40 lbs. in the past year. I am having significant atrophy in my legs, specifically my right leg. As a 52 year old man, I cannot walk normally nor can I walk up stairs.

  • From this study (5 years ago):

  • Was never a smoker, but have intense cravings for cigarettes and seek to smoke 5-10 per day. Unusually/easily emotional. Highly agitated - take 5 or more walks per day to try to relieve the feeling. Significantly changed behavior and misses social cues, so may continue to repeat questions or opinions.

    Behavioral and physical changes came on seemingly all at once, not gradually over time.
