Ι believe molasses is great for iron (except meat)
i had to work my way up to the food intakes that feel like restrictions to others. i found out how many different nutrient issues i had had slowly over time, after already diagnosed.
there are many things you can do to improve iron status eg ensure adequate zinc status, cook in cast iron, store an 'iron fish' with any flour, combine non-heme (veg) iron sources like spinach and kidney beans and/or molasses with healthy sources of vit c eg bell pepper.
i don't have an 'iron fish' but i do cook in cast iron regularly (about to cook breakfast in it, cooked dinner in it last night), and i am working through a batch of homemade tomato-based soup right now, which contains kidney beans for (non-heme) iron and bell pepper for vit C among other things.
i am not familiar with the fine details of oms but if clams are okay, those are rich in iron. a weekly bowl of clam chowder could be useful (i myself am way too picky when it comes to seafood).10K is still a high dose. a late member of this forum maintained 10K daily d3 for a long time and even with daily magnesium intake his serum magnesium level remained deficient which implies he was in terrible shape re magnesium status in tissue. he suffered extreme spasticity (consistent with his lab-documented magnesium deficiency) and ultimately he ended his own life.I stopped taking high doses of vit d in april.since then I took 10000 iu D3 and I stopped taking D3 completely on 3 january 2019.how can I remove D3 from my body?I don't drink enough water the last few months.
the d3 will come down with time. it hasn't been that long since you stopped high dosing with 10K per day. if you can, set up your environment to support regular water consumption through the day (not forgetting multimineral intake to go with).the range info above is augmented with different research sources. my local lab's reference info on a lab report is much more basic. eg they are happy with anything from 75-250 nmol/l.-yours ref.range of 25-oh d have more details than minekeep it upI started taking magnesium supplement after the blood exams.I hope mg will increase slowlyprobably a bit much, especially considering daily needs are negligible by comparison. a multivit/min product would probably be fine. at the moment, i personally take 2/3 of a regular 3-a-day multi vit/min and 1/3 of a 3-a-day b complex. i definitely used to take a lot more, but i had also been severely deficient. the single time i ran a test after a proper washout period using no supplements, the lab assay was not sensitive enough to detect any b12 in my system at all.I take ever day 1000 μg b12,I think 20 days-1 month nowoh i remember seeing that uric acid number now, sorry (or maybe someone else had a similar result recently??). either way, i didn't bother to do the conversion at the time. 4 converts to 238 umol/l, which is consistent with ms patients in remission. healthy controls' uric acid levels sit around 290-300 umol/l aka 4.9 - 5 mg/dl.the high urea number, prompts me to ask if you have ever had serum ammonia or serum uric acid tested.
serum uric acid from last week:
4 (ref.range 2.4-6 mg/dl)
urea,serum 52 (10-50)
if your system is functioning at all like mine was, correcting low zinc might boost serum uric acid and reduce elevated urea (and presumably elevated ammonia too). careful food choices and combinations are key to retaining zinc, especially if animal sources are not part of the picture. i personally can't get it right without a supplement. i just can't stomach oysters, and there are the pcbs to consider in those as well.not right at the momentAlso HbA1C: 4.8 (4.8-5.9 %)
glycose : 71 (70-110 mg/dl)
i don't know if it helpsi can't be sure what will happen in your case but in my own, for sure when i identify nutrient issues and work to correct any problems, things improve. when i do supplements wrong, i make things worse. eg vitamin d3 at 4000IU/d made my magnesium status so bad i literally thought i was going to die.do you believe if zinc,copper,ferritin etc will fixed, ms worsening could be reversed a little? Do you believe high doses of vit d3 and less nutrients damaged my body?can i reverse that?
sorry for my english
re the reversal question, it depends. in my case i let some things go on for too long and ended up with some permanent damage. in other shorter term situations, my body was forgiving and i was able to turn things around. do what you can, and hope for the best.
no apologies for english! what is your first language? i'll try yours and you can have a laugh ;)
My first language is Greek.
I am thinking to change OMS diet to paleo or swank diet,as to take daily essential macro and micro nutrient requirements.I hope the damage is reversable.What is your opinion for both of them?
I want to take zinc supplement,but i've read 've just learned that taking zinc supplement in high dose (25-50mg) in long term (over 2 months) without supplementing with copper may cause copper deficiency which may lead to anemia and neurological disorder.Zinc Picolinate seems to be better absorbed than Zinc Citrate and Zinc Gluconate. so,I think to take that: https://gr.iherb.com/pr/Solgar-Zinc-Pic ... lets/10035
As for iron,I think to take molasses and start eating meat.
Because of these exams
HbA1C: 4.8 (4.8-5.9 %)
glycose : 71 (70-110 mg/dl)
I must start eating sweets or honey.
generally,now I follow meditteranean diet without meat,dairy,so I will follow the same diet with some meat.I am so confused.I just want to be independant.could you help me?
