    @brookway17 if I recall correctly you have been on or are still on either immunosuppressants, steroids or both. Your N=1 may be significantly different than others and I think you'd want to be very careful with this type of experiment.

    Always be careful.
    Whatever you do is your own responsibility, nobody else.
    The other thought.
    Having (Urine - Breath) deuterium difference of almost maximum expected proofs something (positive).
    What is it?
    Not sure if it means that your mitochondria are in the top shape?

    I was born to a 40-year-old mother, so I am not sure

    @drezy I am not on that the steroids anymore, and hope to never take them again. My skin has improved markedly, no longer ripping big patches of skin out when I bump into blonde objects. Still trying to get rid of all the discoloration on my forearms that was caused by the steroids. I’m using red light therapy and it seems to be helping. Unfortunately , I had to increase my Imuran( The drug that gives in the squamous cell skin cancer ) dosage to get off of the steroids
    I really do not think that I can get much below 1.5 L /d, especially when it is hot. The color of my urine is usually pale yellow which I believe means I am properly hydrated. Also because I am susceptible to kidney stones, although I believe they were caused by the steroids, it is advisable to drink lots of water

    As far as drinking 32 ounces of ice water before I use my ice vest ,this would get prohibitively expensive on DDW.

    My new neurologist at university of Pennsylvania wanted me to go to an ophthalmologist due to the fact that I take planquil which can damage your retina. I went to the ophthalmologist two times over the last month for testing . He did not find any problems with my retniasBut he has referred me to a retina specialist to double check. I am going to see him in two weeks.
    The planquil has destroyed my short term memory and I also think it has damaged the visual processing in my brain.

    Latest lab results
    Somewhat concerned about my iodine level
    I guess it was not the steroids that was causing my high homocysteine
    I am somewhat disappointed that my testosterone went down, maybe I am using too much red light

    I suggest that you do
    Spectracell Micronutrient analysis and lipid profile (2x/year)

    and in the LabCorp
    Potassium RBC

    @JanSz any comment on my iodine level
  12. JanSz

    JanSz Gold

    I have no comments, possibly someone (who is not outright against iodine) would comment.

    FreeT3 is very low, TSH and FreeRT3 are high.
    I would start with
    checking Selenium level, likely low
    made corrections
    eventually use NTH 2-4 grains

    I have been illuminating my ponsThrough my open mouth for about a month now and I have not seen any improvement in my clippers symptoms. So I decided to try increasing the duration of the treatment from 8 minutes to 9minutes. Right after my treatment session my balance was off more than normal. The good news is this probably means that I am getting NIR into my pons, but probably too much. I have decreased the treatment duration to five minutes now.
    I am going to go back and look at the biphasic curve and see if I can determine the optimum points and I should be using

    While we are waiting for someone to comment, I was wondering what level do you try to maintain your serum iodine level?

    I have been taking the life extension selenium that you had recommended for several months now, I think I just finished the second bottle. I was borderline on my last spectra cell so I would think that my selenium in good shape now.

    I went to the retina Specialist last week and he told me that everything looked good.
    He had an interesting facility, all the lighting was incandescent, I complimented him on this and he said that blue lite was very bad for you Retina
    He told me that I had mild cataracts and that I should avoid blue light. He complimented me on my RA optics yellow glasses
    It is good to see that at least some doctors are getting the message

    I do not measure my iodine level.
    I imagine that it is hundreds of times over any laboratory limits.
    Iodine is one of the super important elements in our bodies.
    Likely next to the water.
    It is not about thyroid.
    It is about halides that we are exposed to that are inserting themselves in places where iodine should be.

    At first, I was taking one pill daily of that LEF selenium, then two.
    So after my recent Spectracell test I should have added third selenium pill daily.

    Instead, I changed to BodyBio drops. I am taking now 20 selenium drops daily. That is my best estimate, I will make adjustments after next test.

    For a long time, I was planning to change to as many BodyBio supplements as I could.
    In my personal experience, I had two times already when I was not able to correct the deficiencies identified by the Spectracell.
    A variety of supplements that I tried were not making any dent.
    One was chromium. Lack of it was screwing insulin and carbohydrate metabolism.
    That was corrected when I changed to BodyBio chromium.
    The other was Pantothenate. A variety of supplements did nothing until I got B5 that is really meant for shampoos, so there must be a really lot of b5 there.

    I have been reading a lot about autoimmune diseases. I have learned that people with AI Usually have high estrogen levels. I would like to get my estrogen levels tested but I’m not sure if I should test for
    Estradiol or Estrone. Any suggestions for a good at home test company
