Next PSA test coming Monday

7 months ago I was diagnosed with PC and opted to go the Active Surveillance route. 5 months ago I went vegetarian and started learning the benefits of an organic, cancer reducing diet and lifestyle. 3 months ago I went vegan and started juicing lots of carrots, etc. I put the cancer reduction protocol into full swing.

Yesterday, I went in for blood work to get my PSA. In June it was 9.7, Sept 9.1 and we'll see what Monday brings. Next I will be following with and MRI in Feb.

Meanwhile the diet and lifestyle that I have adopted makes me feel amazing. I feel so alive!

Well done! Here's hoping your PSA continues it's downward path. And, if not, you have all of us here and in the other Malecare communities on healthunlocked.com to support you.

Thanks Darryl! I'm optimistic and determined to maintain a healthy, organic, spiritual, fitness filled, vegetarian lifestyle.

123-Anoka you have made a great choice going vegetarian, how you added exercise to this also. Next step would be food plan for life and not a diet, you could look at pescatarian, vegan with some macrobiotic thrown it. I have been a combination of all 3 food plans for 9 years and in the best health of my life living with cancer. My PSA has slowly raised up to a high this year of 30.2 however I stayed in 20's for 3 years and my last PSA came down to 30. I also run a PAP test and that was 2.7 and dropped to 1.9 1st time in 9 years. This test is an old type PSA but lots of Dr.s like it and I have for nine years. Keep up the good work and keep researching. If you want to put the cancer to rest than a plant based food plan is the best with exercise and a few other things.

Thanks PMA! I'll keep you posted and thanks for the encouraging advice. My perspective is one of a total lifestyle shift. This is part of my life forever and I'm feeling great!

crossing my fingers for you

Thanks all, still waiting for results ... stay tuned.

Here's some good news. When I was diagnosed back in June my PSA was 9.75. Six months later, with a pretty intense dietary approach (Chris Beat Cancer protocol) I am now at 8.1. I know that PSA is not the end all measurement but if sure feels good that this number is reducing. My next move is an MRI in 90 days.

Try to go with the T3 MRI

I found this on the web, " The superb reliability of high-field MRI allows radiologists to differentiate between benign and potentially hazardous medical conditions with confidence." Sounds like a good choice! Thanks!

The emerging science is that cancer cells feed on glucose but don't do well on ketones, so a ketogenic diet is being tested as an adjunct to standard cancer treatment. I did Keto all last year (low carb) and my PSA went down from 8.3 to 6.4 during the 6-month period after my DX of cancer Gleason 3+3. The follow up biopsy showed no growth, so I was pleased. One confounding factor is that I was also on prednisone during all that time, and I've read that it can lower PSA scores. So I don't know whether it was the ketosis or the Prednisone that contributed to the PSA lowering. Continuing on Active Surveillance.

Why were you on prednisone?

Autoimmune disease, Polymyalgia Rheumatica, for which long term, low dose prednisone is the preferred treatment. Pred raises blood sugar levels throughout the day, hence the need to eat low carb.

i did, and i am doing similar but im not all vegan yet . went to doc for 3 month PSA it was 2.94 ... I agree diet does make you feel better. My initial PSA was 3.9 ....
