I remember from the past that i cannot take kelp either, it makes me hyper and aggressive. Also I do not have a cold skin or lack of energy - most of the time - which I think are thyroid deficiency problems. So I came to the conclusion that it would probably be best if I do nothing further about it, just the LR and hoping that will finally make me lose weight. BTW I gained all 7 pounds back in a few days after I stopped the DHEA Keto 7. Must have been water, for I got rid of half of that again, but am still not where I was at my lowest.

    I am going to see my doctor next week, for my annual blood test. He asked for me to do that because of my crazy diet - carnivore - and the past few years all values have been just wonderful. I will get the regular cholesterol test, blood sugar, liver function and kidney function, and the normal thyroid stuff, which isn't very specific. I am thinking of asking about D3, cortisol and the T3/rT3 ratio, which I seem to have read somewhere is important. Anything important that I'm forgetting? Should I ask for estrogen and progesteron? (I'm a 62 year old woman) Is HCG something they can test?

    Thanks for all input!
    i cannot take kelp either,

    one have a problem taking iodine
    selenium is low

    check selenium

    may be simpler

    Super Selenium Complex, 200 mcg 100 capsules
    2/day--> Super Selenium Complex, 200 mcg 100 capsules

    Do that for a month then try kelp again.

    I prefer


    First vial
    dropperful/day in liquid
    next vials
    2 dropperfull/week

    Is HCG something they can test?


    Ask for Lutenizing Hormone test

    I doubt that it will show much.
    And if it would show LH level for you, doubtfull if that would have any relation to the HCG you taking.

    I am a men taking testosterone injections.
    That is suppresive to my LH & FSH
    Lack of at least LH causes testicular and scrotal atrophy.
    I am taking
    HCG-shot=400iu EOD

    Tested my LH, nothing there.


    adventure with the DHEA Keto 7

    Possible problems,
    neurosteroid imbalances

    progesterone/estrogen imbalance

    Try to keep track of this list, and attempt to solve items that are out of range or out of ratio.

    5α-Androstane-3α, 17β-Diol Glucuronide
    Estradiol, sensitive
    Cortisol, AM/PM

    Anything important that I'm forgetting?*
    insulin, fasting

    (should be <2)

    Oh, sorry, thanks for correction. Yes, very complex and fascinating. Was reviewing the Quilt this morning again and realized how much I didn't see before and how far we have to go.

    How about taking both


    Before you start eating all that, do inventory, see what you are missing.
    Approach problem in iterative way.
    test, eat, test, eat, test .....................

    I just came from drawing blood for my next test. 12/12/11

    I keep track of what I am doing here:
    JanSz Labs & Tests - Page 23

    11/3/2011 protocol=
    450mg MLM preg,
    200mg DHEA,
    100mg 7keto-DHEA,
    667iu-Ovidrel/EOD, (same as HCG)
    Arimidex 1mg/E5D

    Each tablet has 200mg of mag, 960gm malic acid. I take 3 a day, a few hours before bedtime.

    Calcium isn't exactly a no-no, just usually not necessary while eating paleo, because we're getting enough from our diet.
    Just asking;
    Is this the "approved" version?

    I got
    Source Naturals Magnesium Malate 1250mg 360 tablets $17.15

    Nice story, wish you success.

    eat magnesium malate up to a tolerance,
    that should increase insulin sensitivity (decrease fasting insulin).

    Totally agree.

    Go Astroglide, or CO.

    FWIW, the part which mentions KY comes from the original recipe by Doctor Myhill .

    painfully explicit
    sorry for causing you pain

    thanks a lot Jan! I did actually start the selenium a few months ago, so if that's OK now, I should not have had that crazy reaction to the DHEA Keto 7 either - if those two reactions are related, that is.

    The VERY BEST lube on Planet Earth is the ALL NATURAL Sylk, made from the Kiwi Fruit. We tried them ALL, and sylk is by far the very best. My wife just LOVES it.
    Sylk Special 2 Bottles

    Anything made by K-Y is pure junk in comparison to Sylk. Just my opinion.

    Hoping you can help - I've been on reset now for 15 weeks. Seeing some LS signs (sleep is great, wake refreshed, clear thoughts, stomach is healing with CO - no weight loss yet testing this week). Struggling with keeping the weight off - may be thyroid or hormones which I am testing. Also...

    I just tested my blood sugar readings again & this is what it was (higher than before as well)

    FBG - 89

    Breakfast - grassfed roast, CO, small slice pumpkin custard with HWC & coffee & HWC

    BG - 30 min after eating - 104

    BG - 1.5 hr after eating -110

    BG - 2.25 hr after eating - 106

    Does this mean the HWC is spiking my insulin too much????

    Appreciate any insight... you guys are better than any doctor's office I have visited....amazing amount of knowledge here. Thanks in advance!
