DVT is an abbreviation for Deep Vein Thrombosis which are bloodclots in my legs.
I don't want any of them to 'break-off' and go to my heart or lungs. That could lead to a
PE(pulmonary embolizism) which would kill me.
Take care of your legs and watch your fat intake. Avoid foods that cause plaque buildup
in your veins and arteries.
I've eliminated about 90% of my salt intake. A low sodium diet is really the only way to go.

Warfirin is what I use to control the field mice that seem to get in the house in the colder months.Uncle Al wrote: ↑Sat Jan 25, 2020 11:39 pmI've been able to go from checking Warfirin* blood levels every 2 weeks to every 3 weeks. Soon, hopefully, I'll be able to go to once a month blood testing.
*Warfirin is a blood thinner. I have to be careful when using sharp items as it takes
longer for the bleeding to stop, on this medication.
Very effective too!! Most mouse and rat poisons have Warfirin in them some a lot more that others so be careful when using it..

Yes, I quite often have that sort of problem. I have a few pairs that don't fall down or strangle me. I use various techniques to combat that. Exercise shorts over them, sewn on heavier elastic waistband, or conversion to stockings. My all time favorites are thigh highs or stay ups, but finding good ones at a good price is next to impossible.Shilo wrote: ↑Sun Jan 26, 2020 3:57 pmI've tried tights but found I spent a lot of time hiking them up. Stockings are a lot of faff to put on. If anything I opt for bare unshaven legs with knee high socks. If it's hot no socks and sandals. Sometimes white ankle socks to stop my delicate feet from getting sunburned. As has been said elsewhere, I have no problem with hairy legs it's just a cultural preference for men and women in some parts
