Best supplements for nutritional deficiencies
Got results of a ton of lab work from the doctor yesterday. I won't post them all as it's too much. But for the following I was deficient:
Manganese was too high, which the doctor said should come down with enough magnesium. He also did food allergy panels, thyroid panels (TSH came down from 52 to 6.94 since my last increase in meds), candida panel (negative), and tons of other levels (vit A, D, E, zinc, selenium, progesterone, testosterone, cortisol, and so on were normal). My fasting insulin is <2. He said my HbA1C is good at 5.3, but Dr. Bernstein says that's high.
So, my question is what is the best supplementation for the aforementioned deficiencies? He told me to take a good multi and each of the above supplements (recommending mag glycinate, but no other specific types for the B & C). I see that there are some "co-enzyme" type B-vitamins and fat-soluble B1 & C. Should I be taking both the water-soluble and fat-soluble forms?
Thanks in advance.
ETA: I got a B-12 shot, so that is taken care of.
