I just googled one of the meds that the dr is trying on me to see if it helps called endial digest. Says it is prescribed for pancreatic insufficiency... Have you heard anything about this?
Lorielynnjackson wrote:Hey Jimmy, Thanks for your feedback. I got my MRI of head back today and they say it looks clean, but am sure about Drs opinion. He is a very good cardiologist but I think he is missing the point when it comes to my other symptoms. I am currently doing a 24 hr urine tiers to check hormones in adrenal glands etc. If that comes back clean I will request neurologist appointment. But at the moment I have decided to go for a second opinion on the GI stuff. He blew off the hiccups, pain, nausea and is trying to push drugs until they figure it out. I think these drs have been watching my body for too long and it needs fresh perspective, he didn't even mention the magnesium level. Perhaps a neurologist will see that. Also, is blowing off pancreatic issues, and this other GI specializes in that, so it's worth a try. Appt next week I think... Thank you for your suggestions re magnesium I hesitate to start treating before I see drs or get some form of diagnosis tho, in case it masks the symptoms... And they are terrible right now. For some reason the barium swallow has reacted badly and it has been a rough couple of days...
Oh, Jimmy. As for the track Lyndacarol was on, re pancreas and insulin, or celiac or gluten sensitivities.. Maybe, as I sit here after chicken potatoes and veg, with a stabbing pain in my left back and pain in my abdomen, I feel like she might be on the right track? What do you think?
organs need nutrients to function, period. taking nutrient removal to the extreme, consider: "Thus, after periods of starvation, the loss of body protein affects the function of important organs, and death results, even if there are still fat reserves left unused ... The ultimate cause of death is, in general, cardiac arrhythmia or cardiac arrest brought on by tissue degradation and electrolyte imbalances."also, refrom where i sit all our various perspectives are pretty interconnected, eg:my personal suspicion is that gluten sensitivity, excess insulin, and resulting insulin resistance are players in many MS (or "neurological") symptoms.
Is Serum Zinc Associated with Pancreatic Beta Cell Function and Insulin Sensitivity in Pre-Diabetic and Normal Individuals? Findings from the Hunter Community Study

"Beta cell function, insulin sensitivity and insulin resistance were calculated ... higher serum zinc concentration was associated with increased insulin sensitivity (p = 0.01) in the prediabetic group."
Lorielynnjackson wrote:P.s. Lyndacarol, your hypothesis is not too unconventional I have heard this mentioned somewhere before, and jimmy you are correct. I suspect if there are nutrition issues it may be amplifying an existing problem and symptoms. Both of your ideas I have suggested to Drs already to open up more room for ideas, thank you again for brainstorming with me.
