"Let me add that the body builder sites have an awareness of the advantage of T3 only approach to revving up the body and they wisely say it should only be done briefly because there is always a problem of a body down-regulating if you give it an…"

"I did get his book "the 4 hour chef" but have not seen the other one. Here is a doctor who mentions reverse T3. By the way, if you do not even get the reverse T3 blood test done, then all the other tests may appear OK and in range, as mine…"

"This is why I find the concept of fasting somewhat misleading. I know we are said to be fasting as we sleep and often I won't eat actual food for even longer, and I was having about 2 meals a day too, but I didn't consider it fasting…"

"By using the term up regulation of T3 you show you really do not understand. That would be the solution. It is not what actually happens and I am not even talking about a low carb diet. I am talking about fasting which actually down-regulates T3 and…"

"I was doing that a lot too, but there is a risk of creating high reverse T3. So I suggest you check it out because I learned of Reverse T3 from Gerri in 2011 and did not get around to having it measured until this past June 16th and low and behold,…"

"Here is another factor that could cause lower T4 and hence lower T3 even being made, even though you maybe still quite able....Do you get enough fish and food that would have iodine in it? I know I avoid salt, so cannot count on the iodine in salt,…"

"When I was doing the injections, I did 5 a day for 2 weeks and improved 50% but then reduced to 3x a day for the next 4 months and by then was completely healed but continued for a total of 1 year and 5 weeks, then tried an experiment of no…"

"I think anemia is not considered a serious problem. But if you're trying to live with it, IT IS! In Canada, do you have a minimum hemoglobin count in order to receive Procrit? The FDA did a number on us in the U.S."

Tell us more about you (optional)
Prefer the Orthomolecular Medicine approach and always look for solutions with supplements. It reversed neuropathy for me over 10 years ago and recently my low red blood cells have returned to what they had been before the 2002 disaster. So as I repeatedly find that supplements work, no one will shake my conviction.

I do eat meat, but not very much...less than what I used to. I also take various oral supplements, none of which irritate my stomach. D, B Complex, Iron, E, Taurine, Krill. What neuropathy symptoms were you experiencing that were solved with the B injections over 8 months? Which 6 B vitamins were they specifically?

Janina I am the same guy. I just changed my picture a few years ago. But yes, I did start dinner and a movie and I did become part of the care team. After I graduated this past year I decided to restart the dinner and a movie group, and I took a little more active role here on TUD.

Thank you for asking.

Rick

Hi Janine! Thank You for adding me as your friend! I am very interested in finding out what supplements you used to reverse your anemia. I feel so tired and sluggish with the anemia and need help! It is so nice to have a fellow diabetic be a friend. :)

Hi ,

You may have noticed TuD hanging around the site. It's his 6th birthday this month, and his big international family of people with diabetes is growing. Our 6th birthday fundraising campaign is on! Every dollar you donate allows TuDiabetes to reach 6 people touched by diabetes, giving them the opportunity to not be alone!

Please consider making a donation, as well as asking your friends and family to give what they can. TuD's birthday party will keep getting more guests as we raise more donations (see top of the home page). Let's help keep our family thriving and growing! Please share this message. Thanks!

I don't take supplements ... I prefer to go directly to the root excuse the pun. Here in Asia we get plenty of organically grown greens, herbs, sprouts and roots that form the primary ingredients in most of the supplements. The beef here is mostly Australian grass fed beef (as well as the dairy). As for what started it, it seems to be PTSD. I was in combat immediately before the onset of symptoms.

Hi Janina, I missed some of your comments - thought I could accept your friendship, then answer but your comment was gone. So, greens - I try to but it's hard in the winter, need to do better (I'm hoping to have a winter growing box this fall). As for supplements - I take Nopal juice from cacti which has helped my joints amazingly well. I also take cinnamon, krill oil, and chromium ploynicotinate.

And how are you doing?
