    Hi all
    I'm trying to find an alternative MD in Chicago who will give me IV glut shots.

    I've found a couple who do it.

    Does $125 seem like a good price?

    Anyone familiar with Dr Rentea or Dr Felice?

    Anyone in Chicago getting this anywhere else?

    Tnx'

    I'm not sure what IV glut shots are. The IV's I get at FFC cost $125, but I don't know if they are comparible products.

    yep, that's the price i've been quoted too.. by the alt docs here in chicago.

    God, it almost feels like there's a price fixing cartel.

    BTW, has yr FFC doc recommended B12 shots, or B12 with glut and AMP?

    And do u see any benefit from the glut shots u are getting?

    Tnx

    What is in my IV:
    Thymus substance
    Glycyrrhizinate
    Licorice root
    Magnesium
    Ascorbic Acid
    B6
    B12
    Thiamin
    Riboflavin
    Niacine
    Dexpanthanol
    Pyroxidine
    AMP
    Sodium Bicaronate
    NADH
    Glutathione
    Acetyl L Carnitine
    Licocaine
    They really do seem to help. I have one every two weeks.
    I also get a gamma globulin shot every two weeks.

    I don't get B12 shots. They do give them to some of the patients, but I don't get them. I think they cost $35 at FFC. My SIL gets hers from a dr in Romeo Michigan for about $5 a piece, but she injects them herself.

    Hi Delia,

    I don't know about the shots but my wife has been seeing Dr. Rentea for a thyroid condition for several years and has overall been fairly happy. Her only complaint has been feeling rushed through the office at times. Rentea was reccomended by our chiropractor whom we hold in high esteem.

    Good Luck!

    I'm not sure how much is in her shots. I will try to find out from her.
