So I got a challenge for you. Do you mind if I check that again now? I don't mind at all. Let's see how did. So, the paradox of being a nurse knowing this staff having checked people's blood pressures for most of your life, how do you phrase it a little bit out of a little bit out of, a little bit high? A little bit high.

Hold these if you don't mind. I want everyone to hear today, so we're actually going to do this in a way that allows all of us. Let's see if we can do a little better than we did last time. So 130 or 90. Alright, I know that's a massive difference in the chance of you living to be an old man.

The two of you have been married five years and you haven't had sex and you blame the weight, any progress on that? We're working on it, we're going to take this whole issue and use the same commitment we're using for our weight loss in our health. And speaking of that, erectile dysfunction, any progress there? A little bit disappointing we started with the testosterone gel and I was expecting that to be the miracle cure, two days later I'd be good to go, but that didn't happen.

I'm going to get some more help though, these testosterone drugs don't work for everybody and that's a Carl Goodman, my good friend Dr. Harry Fisch. He's a prominent neurologist and a colleague of mine at New York Presbyterian Hospital. You've been working with Mike and thank you for that.

Talk a little bit about how you interpret Mike's progress today, and what else is out there that might be able to help him? The simplest way of treating men with low testosterone is the gel, but it doesn't work in about 20% of the men because of the skin, so it's the simplest thing we do but the next step is to proceed with injections, and lets face it injections were tremendously will definitely work because you're bringing it right into the blood system.

Dr. Chris thank you as always for your brained expertise. Mike Grissel, congratulations on the progress you've made so far make you far on the story, because we're not quite there yet although I think we're getting a little closer and keep cuddling. Alright, we'll be right back.
