finally Doc Lodoli (you can find the E-mail in Doctors section of CH.ORG)has published his new treatment for CH.
On a total of 9 patients, the success is full on 6 (probably 8, because 2 did not return to the follow visit) The last one have had success at the next cycle.
It means a high success percentage....near 100% (perhaps the sample is low, but......)

The treatment is so easy, with known meds (prednisone). It change only the way of 'feeding'.

Only ONE huge dose of prednisone (approx 2 GRAMS)! This means that the side effects of prednisone are near zero.
Obviously this have to be done IN HOSPITAL, under strict control.

Here is the guideline:
30 mg of metilprednisolone sodium succinate per every Kg of patient weight, in 500 ml of glucose 5%, intravenous, in 45-60 mins.

This treatment is to be avoided from high BP people and pregnant women (plus other cases defined by the doctors.)

I give this to you, hoping that someone could find a doctor ready to try this cure.

I don't want to declare CH is won, but it worth a try
