    these labs tell me much.
    #1 stop eating the liver. Krap... cheap and i enjoy it but my iron levels are thru the roof over the last year. almost dangerously high.
    #2 weight loss alters hormone expression ( oh realty :-) ) drastically. and not necessarily for the better. I need to return to my supplementation regimen
    #3 fasting insulin has dropped as well as IGF-1 WOOT. I am doing it right.
    #4 these freaking lab people are stupid, they are stoopid, and never forget they are STUPID! find out as much as i possibly can to maximize my own health. they keep dropping the ranges even over the short term.
    #5 I already knew this but. my doctor lacks the ability to reason. at least he understand that i have no intention of taking his advice, just run my damned tests thank you very much. - <change my diet, high cholesterol, sigh>

    on a non lab verifiable front. i am much much stronger, i can get 1/4 of a pullup about 5 times. I have a much improved range of motion. i ran for the first time in a long time, probably only a 1/4 mile but still as long as it is only a well fed panda after me i think i can make it.

    sleep is much much better now that i have restarted my pregneneolone, found a bulk suppler so that i can take about 4 grams daily without a gallon of water. i find my craving for dhea dropping as i up the pregnenolone so once i get my self back to a level i may reduce the dhea intake a bit.

    i also think that i cna level off the potassium after several days of 20 gram intakes. i no longer taste electricity like i did in the beginning, i sort of miss it but still it is probably for the best. Still have a bit of edema so I dont think i want to drop it totally but....

    Phenethylamine - nuff said

    i think those are all my recent nuggets.

    lab ranges are just an average of the results, if the ranges keep dropping more and more sick people are being tested.

    10 years ago thyroid lab ranges in the US were similar to Canada and Australia, now the top of the range is 65% of the range used in the commonwealth.

    OK!!

    i have no idea when it happened, but i have leveled up again in my thinking ( or is it leveling down) and now i am having trouble connecting with any one or thing i used to find important.

    some examples.

    When did i find it annoying to read fiction versus listen to it?
    When did i lose my taste for Star Trek, or Star Wars?

    When did i decide that most of the information available is so tainted that my own research is totally preferable to some PhD's research.

    I wonder if it has to do with the simple fact that my health is 1000% better with my own guidance and the fact that my conversations with my MD go as follows

    MD: you are looking great, what are you doing

    Me: None of your business, now here are the tests i want run, you find a code which will make my insurance pay like a good little bitch, OK?

    MD: but i dont know how to read these tests.

    Me: I know, dont worry about it, i do.

    MD: I want you to cut back on the fat in your diet

    Me: ........... <smile>

    MD: see you for a followup

    Perhaps the best line ever. Bravo sir.
    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    What the F&#* is a decorum? - Mr. Anthony
