    Anorexia nervosa can be difficult to overcome. But with treatment, you can gain a better sense of who you are, return to healthier eating habits and reverse some of anorexia’s serious complications. ‘,–

    Have a good one

  2. Bonnie Saks, MD says:

    There is an ongoing controversy about the efficacy and safety of testosterone in pre- and even post-menopausal women for enhancing libido. Is there any accurate way to measure if a woman is testosterone deficient? When, if ever, do you recommend testosterone use in women? By what modality?

    I have lived in an all male (4 brothers) household and had SEVERE hemorrhaging for over 40 yrs. Even though my mother was diagnosed later in life w/ VonWillebrands & contracted hep c from a transfusion, my conditioned was continuously ignored by Drs & kept being referred to GYNs instead of Hematologists. The horror stories got worse & worse, even after my diagnosis ( due to my both sons diagnosis!)I know the Hemophilia soc. is trying to educate Drs more…but I want my story told so others wont die & suffer alone in hiding feeling inferior embarrassed their whole life like me.
