Finally K moved Last time it did it was the 5+ g of Kcl. This time I had 300mg from TEI. But I dont think that those 300mg are the reason for it to be that high.
So I guess Cu went into a range where K is allowed to go up.
High Zinc and Manganese intake did not change Zn or Mn levels. Again. Zn declined with 100mg/d.
(Interestingly Mn does lower copper but copper increases Mn - so maybe manganese levels are somehow connected to available copper?)
Copper is lower again. Actually 0,1 lower than my lowest ever. Still a bit disappointed as I wished to see either really high levels or a good 1-2 level.
Need to watch Mg and Na levels.
Also Fe levels. After Gastritis with ppi etc hemoglobin probably will be at 5 again.
First time that Im in a pattern with excessive adrenal function. Also increased thyroid.
Something I posted yesterday in another thread - this study shows that certain steamed vegetables are superior at binding to bile - things like steamed beets, aubergine, kale are all up there. Broccoli is also good;
Calcium d-glucarate is also good at binding to toxins (including bile). Broccoli actually contains high amounts, so double plus for steamed broccoli!
During liver detoxification, some compounds—including various hormones, such as estrogen—are modified via glucuronidation, a process whereby glucuronic acid is attached to a toxin or normal metabolic product (for example, excess steroid hormones) in order to create a less toxic conjugate that can be more easily eliminated from the body. In the case of liver detoxification, such substrates include xenobiotic substances—compounds that are foreign to the body—such as environmental pollutants and pharmaceutical drugs, as well as endogenously produced compounds like excess estrogens and androgens, mineralocorticoids, glucocorticoids, fatty acid derivatives, retinoids, and bile acids.
May be we have impaired glucuronidation - could be that fin/accutane etc has overloaded this pathway
Glucuronidation, the combining of glucuronic acid with toxins, requires the enzyme UDP- glucuronyl transferase (UDPGT). Glucuronidation is a major inactivating pathway for a huge variety of exogenous and endogenous molecules such as pollutants, fatty acid derivatives, retinoids (similar to Vitamin A), bile acids and bilirubin. Many of the commonly prescribed drugs or medications (such as aspirin) are detoxified through this pathway.
Actually just reading through that liver detox PDF I posted above, and although I've read that tons of times, this stands out;
According to environmental medicine specialist William Rae, the process most often disturbed in the chemically sensitive involves methylation reactions catalysed by S-adenosyl-L-methonine-dependent enzymes.
Feeling pretty nauseous lately. And am bloated but only night time.
Only thing that helps eliminate this is doing molybdenum with every meal.
Not sure whether its because its binding and helping to excrete copper or because I developed some problems with Candida / Sibo after acid inhibitor (ppi) use.
Both have symptoms like nausea, vomiting, gas bloating etc.
And both is helped with moly
Pretty much fixed by some carnosine/ histidine. Probably aftermath from ppi. Low stomach acid - low histidine vice versa.
Bloating was only on days eating protein so that matches.
High mineral intake from TEI (esp. Zinc, Iron, Molybdenum) needs Amino acids like Histidine. Having that in mind, I prolly did run low on protein after eating pretty little (protein/food) while and days after Gastritis.
Am back to normal though + back on track to have this solved soon.
