b12 1668 high (normal 211-946) After 3.5 months of 20,000/day supplementation
Vitamin D 27.5 low (normal 30-100) After 3.5 months of 4000-8000/day supplementation
Magnesium 2.1 normal (normal 1.6-2.6) After 3.5 months of 360/day supplementation
Zinc 96 normal (normal 56-134) After 4 months of 50mg/day supplementation
Cortisol was really weird. There is a normal range for am and pm. AM normal is 6.2-19.4 PM normal is 2.3-11.9
Free Cortisol 5.8 at 3.33pm
So...I'm thinking this is how CAP and mino work. They suppress cortisol and aldosterone...maybe allowing the hippocampus to heal if the right dose is taken? I dunno.
I'm not sure if that even works to explain the normal cortisol level because I stopped taking doxy (and all supplements) 5 days before this test. Also, it wasn't exactly the best test to get an accurate measure of what my cortisol levels are doing. Maybe I'll ask for a better test in April.Doxycycline treatment decreased both basal (58%, P < 0.01) and Ang II-stimulated (46%, P < 0.01) cortisol levels
At any rate, those results are very messed up by CAP and the recommended supplements in the Wheldon protocol. And if my cortisol and zinc were in normal ranges as a result...what the heck is blocking my D absorption?! Yes, I took calcium too.
