Re: B12 question

Oh, wow. Mind-boggling, JL. No wonder it took so long to get it worked out. If only we had our own personal owner's manual from the get-go, right? I honestly don't know if I have the mental aptitude for all of this. There's just so much. It's particularly interesting to me how you rotate the multis....

Re: B12 question

I have had the blood tests but results aren’t back yet.

Re: B12 question

Ugh. Plastic. Even in the air we breathe. I envy your buck a shuck situ. Sorry about the veggie wrap. :-( So I have two people scouting for dietitians for me and an appt with a neurologist in June. In the meantime, I’m just going to continue working on making sure I’ve got basics covered. Where have...

Re: B12 question

Oh, yum! That soup looks great! Have to used canned, though, because I can’t get fresh anything seafood where I live. I like soup, too. I’m a fan of bowl-y foods. :-) Thanks for the info on the oysters. I don’t eat them much because they have to be canned and that’s not as tasty as fresh. But I can ...

Re: B12 question

Ok, my husband tested me at registering the taste at 3 seconds. It never really got nasty for me. It was a strong taste but I kept waiting for it to get horrid, which it didn’t. That seems like a subjective opinion. But I’m going to focus on zinc rich foods for awhile and see if it changes. I do eat...

Re: B12 question

Thanks for that info, JL. I’m going to test it again with my husband timing it so it’s less subjective. That’s interesting about your cough. There’s so much to know, so much to learn! And it’s like every individual body has it’s own manual but it’s only revealed a bit at a time. Overwhelming and fru...

Re: B12 question

The estimation of “close to immediately” is my own. Product info https://prlabs.com/liquid-zinc-assay.html
Can you link to the research you mention?

No, I’ve not had problems with acid reflux taking the magnesium at night.

Re: B12 question

JL, I believe the zinc assay test indicates that I don’t have a deficiency but I’m not sure I know exactly what I’m doing with it. According to the directions, you hold the liquid in your mouth for 10 secs, if you taste metal immediately or close to immediately, you’re ok. The longer the delay, the ...

Re: B12 question

Have you ever tried adenosylcobalamin?
No, I haven’t but I’ll give it a try.

Re: B12 question

Mm hm. That’s how I processed the residual neuropathy two years ago after bringing b12 up. Damage done. And it’s why I’m worried about this new bout with neuropathy more extensive and b12 levels high. Will learn more with next blood tests results. Or eliminate consideration of it as the problem, I g...

Re: B12 question

JL, thank you for the diary link. :-) I'll be sure to prep with it. Yes, I still take the magnesium glycinate. I shifted one of my capsules to take with the Vitamin D3 because I saw you post about that somewhere. It was an easy shift but I'm just winging it because, honestly, I don't really know wha...

Re: B12 question

JimmyLegs, the situation sort of evolved over time to me dealing with these nutrients in isolation. I began using magnesium glycinate a few years ago as a suggestion from somewhere as a help with headaches. Then when I found that I had a B 12 deficiency a couple of years ago, I added that. Now vitam...

I was dx with B12 deficiency a couple of years ago when I was presenting with symptoms of peripheral neuropathy,muscle spasms, fatigue a...
