You probably haven’t heard of Fenofibrate unless you are being treated for high triglycerides. However, we all should know about this as it could be yet another treatment for the pandemic virus! Much like our previous post on Ivermectin, and the possibilities of it treating cancer, Fenofibrate has been around a long time and has crossover uses! This drug has been on the market since 1975 and in 2018 was the 73rd most prescribed medication in the United States. And now they are finding it can be an effective treatment for the covid-19 virus.
According to a new study, fenofibrate, a drug used to treat abnormal levels of fatty substances in the blood, could reduce COVID-19 infection by up to 70%
Corresponding author Dr Farhat Khanim, of the University of Birmingham in the UK, explained: “The development of new more infectious SARS-CoV-2 variants has resulted in a rapid expansion in infection rates and deaths in several countries around the world, especially the UK, US and Europe. Whilst vaccine programmes will hopefully reduce infection rates and virus spread in the longer term, there is still an urgent need to expand our arsenal of drugs to treat SARS-CoV-2-positive patients.”
While we are seeing the “vaccines” show less and less effectiveness for fighting the virus and halting the spread, one thing we need to do is find more ways to stop this early on. As doctors and nurses make the plea on social media for everyone to put on a mask and get the shot, these same people should be demanding that every avenue of treatment be used. Would it not make sense to have an arsenal of therapeutic drugs that can be used to keep most from having to be admitted to the hospital? The more protocols we can utilize for those who test positive with minor symptoms, the less strain on the hospitals so they can treat those with serious conditions. Makes a lot of sense to a simple health coach and his family having a dinner conversation.
