Chat_Moderator: Questions will be screened prior to delivery to Dr.Carson to ensure that we remain focused on the topic of the evening. Richard: Are there any clinical trials available for Peyronie's patients?Anything applied to the skin has many layers to pass to get to the plaque.
There are several studies of shock wave treatment that also show no significant improvement. I tried 9 months of topical Verapmil with absolutely NO impact!
Dr_Carson: I am not surprised as the Verapamil does not get into the plaque from the topical application. Is there anything that I should be doing but waiting? There are all kinds of treatments being suggested on the internet- Vitamin E topical with DMSO, enzymes, etc.
jlee: has there been any evidence of pd being linked to be diabetic?
Dr_Carson: PD occurs in diabetics but there does not seem to be a higher incidence in diabetic men herm: will rubbing in vitamin E directly into the scar tissue/plaque can that break it up Dr_Carson: No.
