  • Supplements products (TRUCARDIA)

    I am going to discuss this with my doctor next visit but I was wondering if anyone here has any experience with using supplement products?

    Anyone ever heard of a company called Trucardia??

    I was recommended these will help improve mitochondrial health and cardiac muscle energetics:

    -Q-best 100 (2 daily)
    -Amino Complex (2 servings daily)
    -Niacel (2 daily)
    Cardiologist Testing: Early September, 2014
    HCM COE Testing: Late September, 2014
    HOCM diagnosed by Dr Marcos Hazday
    AICD implanted: Oct 7th, 2014

    Hi Gomrad,
    Most of the specialists recommend against supplements like this.

        Until there are definitive studies and standardization of dosing in supplements... You probably will not get approval by any traditional MD. They may help, There may be a future for them, they may interact with your meds and so it is basically experimenting on yourself with unproven outcomes.
        I did get my cardiologist to admit, off the record, that there is good evidence that statins reduce CO Q 10. And I take a CO Q10 supplement.....
        It becomes a personal decision but as Gordon said, MDs are very uncomfortable with them for good reason.
        After years of symptoms:
        Officially Diagnosed HOCM 2006
        Myectomy 3/11/13 at non-COE
        Extended Myectomy 7/23/14
        At Mayo with Dr. Joseph Dearani

          Save your money. Unless this person is a cardiologist at a COE, the only interest they have is the commission earned by your purchase.

            Until there are conclusive investigations and institutionalisation of dosing in enhancements, you presumably won't get endorsement by any conventional, they may help, there might be a future for them, they may collaborate with your prescriptions thus it is essentially investigating yourself with dubious results
