Effer-K enabled patient with congestive heart failure to take a diuretic to control edema and avoid painful spasms and severe muscle cramping.

We received a fantastic e-mail from a patient who says that Effer-K changed his life.

Hello – I am just writing to say thank you so much. [Effer-K] changed my life. I have congestive heart Failure and was unable to control my Edema due to muscle cramping but Effer-K changed all that!

My doctor had a sample given to him and I was in serious trouble and the pills just did not work. I was taking 2 -20mg horse pills with a diuretic each day but could not maintain the regiment due to muscle spasms. I believe this product enabled me to take a daily diuretic and saved me from a heart attack. I was literally on the brink of calling 911 – I could not breathe due to fluid buildup and the Effer-K enabled me to take the diuretic without painful spasms and severe muscle cramping.

Anyone taking the huge pills would prefer Effer-K and it is more readily absorbed by the body. I can now take 1 -20 mEq Effer-K where 2-20mg pills did not even work. My cardiologist never heard of it. I am lucky my primary care doctor had this given to him.

No BS, it changed my life and I am sure there are lots more folks that could benefit from this.

Thanks, Bill for the feedback. We are so happy to hear that Effer-K has made a difference in your life.

Effer-K and Cardiovascular Diseases

Earlier this week we received a sample request for Effer-K from Lisa, a Pennsylvania-based nurse practitioner who works in a heart failure clinic.   We soon realized that this practitioner was one of our first fans of Effer-K. We traced our encounter with Lisa back to 2007, when we attended the 2007 AAHFN (American Association of Heart Failure Nurses) Conference in Miami, FL.

The AAHFN is “a specialty organization dedicated to advancing nursing education, clinical practice and research to improve heart failure patient outcomes. Heart failure is our exclusive interest and passion. Our goal is to set the standards for heart failure nursing care.” In late June of 2011, they will be holding their 7th annual national convention in Seattle, Washington. And we are thinking about exhibiting again.

Our Effer-K advocate, Lisa, is in charge of a large heart failure clinic and has seen the difference that Effer-K can make in a person life who is living with congestive heart failure or other heart failure disease.

“I think you have a fantastic product. I have recommended to my patients”.
Lisa, Heart Failure Nurse Practitioner

A lot has changed since we met Lisa in 2007. Back then, we had only one source of wholesale distribution, now the big 3 phramaceutical distributers (Cardinal, McKessson and AmerisourceBergen) as well as many smaller, regional distributors such as Smith and Kinray Drug all stock Effer-K so virtually any pharmacy can order it.

It’s always nice to see a contact made years ago come back and compliment you on your product. It also gave us an opportunity to reflect on how far we have come.
