Thanks, Judy :D Makes you feel good when someone actually listens!

This is a good thread for you--lots of histimine talk. (Could prove very helpful if what you have are allergies!) ;) With all the sneezing, I'll bet that's what it is--the doctor in the paper today said that it was due to begin as early as this week--earlier than usual.

Matt and I have been sneezing a little bit, too. The ragweed must be creeping over the bridge from Philly to Jersey :o

well i'll try to capture that and keep it over here :lol:

i know nothing of histimines so guess i better read up..

just never had allergies this bad if that's what it is.

are people saying that food+ histimines+ ragweed = sneezing :lol::huh::blink: ???????

I don't even know what the fast reply is :lol:

Chelse!! Look at you! I love your new picture :)

Rachel, I have more research to do but I though it was an interesting connection between histamine and thyroid. I have hypothyroid so I wonder if the same could be said, they mentioned it had to do with normalizing thyroid, so my thinking was mybe it could be for both hyper and hypo??

Copper is an interesting component as well.

TheDave,

Such random things I said 200 pages ago are not to be resurrected.

Maybe he's trying to make a statement ... after all, he's read over 100 pages so far!! ;):rolleyes:

Yes....new rule....all things said more than 50 pages ago shall remain lost in the thread. No more pulling out random things from the past.... :blink::ph34r:

Only pertinent scientific info shall be resurrected and thrown back at us. :P

Andrea, I seriously doubt he's read the whole 100 pages. Me thinks he's skipping the scientificness (it goes over his head anyways) and just looking for the things he can have more fun with. I'm sure I'll be hearing about it today....the things I posted in my crazy sweet potato stupor....coming back to haunt me. :ph34r:

What was I thinking?? :blink:

Miamia,

Did they tell you when to expect your test results?? I'm wondering how long it will take. I'm very impatient....want to know now. The lady at the lab wasnt very friendly...I wanted to ask how soon they get their results back but she scared me a little so I kept my mouth shut....since she was the one who was gonna be poking me with the needle. <_<

Rachel-

I am the same way. I get so impatient!!! If I can I try to get my doctor to call and tell them to put a rush on the results. I never get why they always take so long. Yes always good to be nice to the people with the needles- I have really deceptive vanes they look like they are right at the surface and then when you try to draw blood from them it dosen't work and one of my arms is easier to draw from than the other - when I warn nurses or doctors about this they get so defensive because they think I am trying to tell them how to do their job so they always ignore me and then end up poking me a million times til they end up doing exactly what I said. I have come out of many tests looking like a heroine addict- Lots of needle marks plus the skinny factor- yes I get some strange looks!!

About the copper thing- I don't know how I tesst with that but I know I do have a zinc deficiency I wonder about that in connection to all this- ahh more to research

Ok Julie and everyone else-

I did some mor eresearch and I have a doctors appt this morning so these are the things I found and am going to run by him-

They are all supplements so I know these are always questionable-

Wobenzym N- thats the systemic Oral enzyme

-Biogenesis Bioinflamatory- Its a medical food powder to support gastro intestinal healing and remove toxins (inc. environmental toxins)

- Daystar Quick Relief- For food allergic reactions -you can take this one daily or when you feel like you are having a reaction from food

Ok I hope some of this is helpful

CarlaB,

Did you get the golcose test? Did you test yet? How did it go? Sorry if I mnised it.

I walked over to the pharmacy, it's locally owned, and the least expensive test kit was $19 with no needles or test strips. So, I thought I'd wait to go to a chain pharmacy that might have a cheaper one.

Then, I get to debating in my head whether to do it or not ... I don't think this current dizziness is from it, and now that my jaw has moved to accomodate the mouthpiece and the inflammation in my face seems to be going away, I'm not so dizzy. Plus, Morgan just woke up sick this morning ... apparently I had a virus! Yah! Not another food intolerance! ;) I'm sorry for Morgan, but glad for the confirmation I was just plain sick.

I do think hypoglycemia may be a problem as I've always had a problem if I eat simple carbs by themselves. I end up really tired later. If I eat something sweet at night, I have a "hangover" effect from it in the morning. One night we went out to eat, had two or three drinks with dinner (not enough for a major hangover), and then watched a movie and split a pint of Haagen Dazs, but the ice cream was a couple hours after dinner. The next day I was so delirious that I didn't understand simple things Adam was saying, so I started giggling, he realized there was a major problem and sat me down with some Propel. (This was before I was casein-free so some of the reaction was due to the casein ...)

Ever since then I've been careful to eat protein with carbs and have not had another problem ... so from now on it's STEAK with my SORBET!! :P

Do you think it's worth doing the test if I'm aware of the problem and have adjusted the way I eat? I didn't have a problem with the glucose tolerance test when I was pregnant, but the last time was, well, she's 8.

Thanks for asking! It's nice having all of you here who care ... no one in my circle of friends/family (excluding those I live with) seem to even think of asking. It means a lot.

Hmm the one I got from CVS was $15 I am pretty sure, had the needles, and 10 strips. I might be a bit off on the price, but taht is ballpark, so yea look for a chain store.

I would. Reverse the question, why not? For me, I would want to know. TarnalBerry on this site is hypoglycemica and did not do the test, neither did penguin, so you would be in good company at least. For me, it was nice to have an objective test with objective numbers to back it up. Plus it was nice to rule out diabeteas.

If I did not it would always be wondering "what if..."

I tested a couple times after Vincent mentioned it, but it gave me the ooglies to stick myself, so I stopped. I'm in the "hmm, I'm starting to get a bit shaky, better eat something" camp of hypoglycemics. It helps to just eat balanced and often throughout the day...

I have blood tests run occasionally, including fasting, and I'm always in normal ranges, so for me it's reactive hypoglycemia. It's also one of the gazillion symptoms of celiac.

Yea Random testin wil not catch reactive, only the process I describe will work for the blood test.

The doc did the morning blood sugar test for diabetes, so I think that's ruled out ... at least that's what my doc said ...

Why not? Needles ... I'm a baby. :( Next time I have a problem, I'll do it ... for now, I'll just keep doing what I've been doing ... which isn't cleaning the house ... really need to get off here and get started!! Sick three days, this place is a disaster!

Whoops, meant to say that's how diabetes was ruled out for me and how they figured out which hypoglycemia I have. If you're hypoglycemic first thing in the morning, it's fasting hypoglycemia, which is considered a pre-diabetes sign, or at least a risk factor.

I've never checked my blood during a crash, I chickened out before I got that far.

Carla, I bought a cheap one from Long's...it was called "FreeStyle" and it had all the stuff, including 10 test strips. I really just wanted to do the testing for the one day, so this was perfect. I ended up buying another kind...just a bit more expensive as well, and I used it ocassionally just to see if my symptoms are related to blood sugar...they never are though, but I'm still glad I have it to erase the doubts.

(Still trying to get used to you as a red head....)

Yea fasting/diabetes is done that way , but reactive is trickier. BTW I am STILL screwing up my diet, how long will it take me to learn have a freaken clue about it! As soon as the crash hits I know what happend Stuff like YOU STUPID IDIOT ALL YOU HAD WAS ICE CREAM ALL DAY!

BUt I guess at least I know.... :lol: if a bit late :lol:

Miamia and Rachel,

When Talitha had her blood work done we always had results within a couple days. Maybe they do some things faster than others.

I was looking for Susan's post about her neice over here. Susan if you come over and read this....sounds like your neice could benefit from being tested for celiac as well as challenging the histamine with a low histamine diet. I would think that you aren't the only celiac/gluten intolerant in your family.

Carla,

It's nice to have such a caring community isn't it?

Vincent,

Come join us over in R-2. Of course now this thread is probably easier to keep up with. :P

As soon as the crash hits I know what happend Stuff like YOU STUPID IDIOT ALL YOU HAD WAS ICE CREAM ALL DAY!

Sounds like you pulled a Rachel. :P
