Dr Folts did the research on aspirin and it's roll as a anti platelet, he also found it does not work when the human body is under stress (when most heart attacks occur). He has been researching other alternatives and the best one to date is Grape seed extract. He has a patented formula marketed through a private company but it would be solicitation to say who it is here. But regular GSE is good for you also.

Is Korandil 10 any way responsible for fall in platelet count. It is now 125 against range normal of 150-450. Can you enlighten please, if any caution is necessary.

I have a high platelet count, what does that mean? I was just diagnosed as anemic also. Ive been having stomach pains, and stopped taking aspirin and advil in the last 2 weeks because I was afraid I caused myself a stomach bleed. But since I ve been taking aspirin daily for months, shouldn t my platelet count be low?

Hi Doc

I am a male, 68yo, widower, Chinese (not from China). I lead an active sex life.....I have sex at least twice a week sometimes with different women (not prostitute). For the last 1 month, 5 out of 10 times that I have sex...I couldn't ejaculate although the sensation of ejaculation were there. I have Type 1 Diabetes..I inject 52mg of insulin everyday plus captoril and simvastatin. I also consume 80mg of Aspirin everyday for the last 20 years.



My question is.....Is there any kind of medication\drug that I can take so that I can ejaculate each time I have sex.



Thank you.

Numerous symptoms: Upper spinal pain at the base of my skull; Lower spinal pain in the Lumbar region; frequent urination; diarrhea; occasional dizziness and tired a lot.
