Thank you so very much for this article, Vaughn. I’m 72 years old and have been researching this subject for a very long time. Your advice makes far more sense than others, which have sometimes caused more problems. For example, your note to avoid parsley answered a big question for me. I was advised to drink parsley tea in many places. I did so and made a powerful concoction. Drinking only a wineglass full of this stuff caused the inside of my left hand and fingers to totally dehydrate. The skin turned white and seemed to separate itself from the flesh. It looked like a scrunched up piece of paper sitting on my hand. It lasted only ten minutes and was very scary! Dandelion tea had a similar effect. But why the left hand? Could this represent my left kidney I wonder because this is the one that sometimes gives me pain.
Renal replacement therapy , such as with hemodialysis , may be instituted in some cases of AKI. Renal replacement therapy can be applied intermittently (IRRT) and continuously (CRRT). Study results regarding differences in outcomes between IRRT and CRRT are inconsistent. A systematic review of the literature in 2008 demonstrated no difference in outcomes between the use of intermittent hemodialysis and continuous venovenous hemofiltration (CVVH) (a type of continuous hemodialysis).  Among critically ill patients, intensive renal replacement therapy with CVVH does not appear to improve outcomes compared to less intensive intermittent hemodialysis.   However, other studies demonstrated that compared with IRRT, initiation of CRRT is associated with a lower likelihood of chronic dialysis.  
We are becoming quite tired of these senseless and premature steroid deaths. Nasser’s death immediately followed the death of Matt Duval. Matt Duval was another bodybuilder with too much body weight relative to his vertically-challenged frame. Unlike Nasser, Matt didn’t achieve the same level of notoriety with competitions limited to amateur Junior National competitions and ad hoc guest posing appearances. We offer no kind words to describe either Matt Duval or Nasser El Sonbaty following such horrible deaths. In his absence, Nasser adversely affected the lives of family members, American & German friends, and a global fan base. The enormity of their structures was influential to young generations determined to initiate steroid cycles even though they would become too addicted to observe Nasser’s final outcome and deviate from their destructive behavior. For these reasons, we offer no ‘Rest In Peace’ sentiments. Rather, we say “It Is What It Is”.
