  1. Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin, B6, Folate, B12, Calcium, Copper, Vitamin D, Iron, vitamin K, Magnesium, Zinc. These have all been flagged for Celiac patients as high risk for deficiency. There are others. Potassium is high risk for inflammatory bowel disease patients. Choline and iodine are high risk...
  2. Posterboy, thanks for the links. I read Armin Schroll's http://www.mgwater.com/schroll.shtml convincing discussion of the importance of magnesium. Magnesium is the power source for the cellular Potassium pumps needed to get K from the blood into the cell. Potassium without magnesium is like buying...
  3. I do have some bottles of Mag Citrate. Kathy was drinking it like soda pop until she was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer. The stuff is nasty tasting but has 1745 mg an ounce so I'll try a 1//2 oz a day and see what happens. The RDA upper limit for Mag supplements is 350 mg. The RDA minimum is 420 mg...
  4. I apologize for my outburst in the previous post. I have not replaced my D3 supplement (10k iu) since running out two months ago and it appears to be having a subtle effect on my mood. Our bodies were designed to be half naked in the sun most of the day. Among the hormones that research shows to...
  5. Recently upped my magnesium to 500 mg magnesium oxide b.i.d. and it may be helping. I've always been a night person. Wide awake at 2 am., sleepy when the sun comes up. There is always something. For a while it was prostate every two hours (male by the way), that went away with gluten-free, then backpain...
  6. I'm 69, been on prednisone, it saved my life, for 8 years now, so I know I have depressed adrenal activity. As I understand it pregnenolone is converted in the adrenal cortex to DHEA and so on. What I wonder about is what causes the slowdown in production of pregnenolone from cholesterol in the first...
  7. cholesterol to pregnenolone to DHEA to testosterone and a whole host of others like estrogen, etc.. It is well documented that DHEA production starts declining in everyone at the end of our 20"s. Apparently DHEA level can be used as an accurate predictor of age. (give me your DHEA level and I can...
  8. My post nasal drip was so thick I had to pull it out of my nose like rubber cement glue. As an adolescent they removed my tonsils. I think that helped only because now there are fewer obstacles for it to stick to. C-Pap helps my son and brother, but begs the question: Why? Since increasing my vitamin...
  9. You need to be in the 20's before you are considered medically deficient. After insurance declined payment the doctor only charged me $20. I'll add to that: or supplement to guaranty sufficient absorption until your gut heals. One of the references above, concerning hypovitaminosis and obesity...
  10. After taking 10,000 i.u. of D3 a day for two years, when I was tested my level was 44.7 ng/mL. Optimum is in the 70's. And my health insurance declined to pay for the test as it was unnecessary. That level of supplementation would have put a normal body at 80 ng/mL. That was after 5 years gluten...
  11. ...And the world wide obesity epidemic is simply gluttony and laziness.
  12. I believe you wish you could have a donut, still addicted, because you appear to be defending wheat. There was a clinical trial: "In 2013, scientists at Careggi University Hospital in Florence decided to see if health markers changed when people switched between eating modern wheat and KAMUT® brand ...
  13. I believe it safe to say that there are no health benefits to eating gluten. The benefit of a celiac diagnosis is that celiac causes a comorbidity with malabsorption syndrome and subsequent vitamin and mineral deficiencies. With diagnosis you know your risk. Unfortunately the medical profession continues...
  14. Ariadne100 your symptoms are not weird, just side effects of the damage done by a diet that includes wheat. As you heal you'll likely be able to reintroduce those foods. In the meantime ensure you are getting a minimum 100% or more of all the essential vitamins and minerals, through food or supplement...
  15. Easy and profitable for him. No wonder you don't trust him. Maybe he broke a glow plug and is CYA. If he got air in the injector lines and did not get it bled out or left one or more loose it could cause the shaking. If air in the lines and not leaking it will eventually self bleed and you are back...
