I had been wanting to find the time to re-listen/view the webinars and finally did get back to one today- the one with Prof Agar answering questions on nocturnal. With the technical problems that have occurred, I would always miss parts and wonder what I had missed. And I found I could not read or contribute to chat and concentrate on the presentations at the same time. So, it is great that I could go back and fill in the blanks.
With this presentation, there was a delay. Prof Agar would ask you something and you were on the screen not saying anything. I kept laughing because this kept happening and you were sitting there just so perfectly still not even flinching a facial muscle. Then Bill P. and Dr. L had direct lines commenting to you and Prof. Agar, so with the delays and everyone talking at the same time, now I remember why I had so much difficulty taking everything in. By listening to this presentation again, I caught info I missed the first time.
So, I have a question. Prof Agar said with nocturnal there is improvement in pth, cal. runs on the high side of normal and phos/cal levels/balance improve. I believe he said over there they give a small dose of cinacalcet sp?, but you were saying that you had attended a seminar where they said nocturnal patients should no longer need cinacalcet ( is that the same thing as vit D analogs?). Could you clarify what was said in this portion of the presentation?
I’m going back yet another time just to read the speaker’s teaching notes. I’m not a person who can take in multiple stimuli as with all the technical bloopers, but I love the webinars : )
