My youngest is a migraine sufferer, she doesn't get them often but she does get them.

    I have no desire to get into healthcare as a profession and actually just left a DME. I really have no desire to go back again.

    - Dr. K, merehart is asking about copper *EXCESS* and whether it can cause those or other problems. And how common is that?
    Very uncommon. There is a disease called wilsons disease that this is seen. In twenty yrs i have never seen a case

    "Normal Fasting Blood Sugar
    A normal fasting blood sugar (which is also the blood sugar a normal person will see right before a meal) is:

    83 mg/dl (4.6 mmol/L) or less.

    Many normal people have fasting blood sugars in the mid and high 70 mg/dl (3.9 mmol/L) range.

    Though most doctors will tell you any fasting blood sugar under 100 mg/dl (5.6 mmol/L) is "normal", there are several studies that suggest that testing with a fasting blood sugar in the mid 90 mg/dl (5 mmol/L) range often predicts diabetes that is diagnosed a decade later.
    Post-Meal Blood Sugar (Postprandial)
    Independent of what they eat, the blood sugar of a truly normal person is:

    Under 120 mg/dl (6.6 mmol/L) one or two hours after a meal. "
    My answer is a fasting bg below 88

The TJ's doesn't have enzymes or natural flavors, but the others have enzymes. Do these added enzymes create too much MSG in the final product? How does this compare with "background noise" glutamates in other foods?
    Yep.....you got to read labels

It's exciting to see another positive change occurring.
    Awesome sign

I could probably skip lunch occasionally but I don't want to put myself in the "Snack Zone" b/c I really wasn't ready to skip lunch... now if I'm out to lunch & I'm being served something and Don't have control over lunch...well then... I can either skip lunch... or eat after the event
    You wont need a doc.......youre well on your way already to repair. Keep it up. Serum cortisol is a waste. Very innaccurate and you can tell your endo i said so

    Thanks!
    This is a great sign too keep it up leptin is regaining control

    Dr. K, my husband's results came back with high levels of copper, and from everything I researched there is a direct link. Copper can elevate just from stress, partly because it reduces zinc. Its also present with a deficiency or other minerals- iron, selenium....

    It is linked to adrenal insuffuciency because even if you have sufficient amounts of copper, they may be biounavailable, which then leads to an excess. What I found interesting is that women usually have higher levels, but my husband is showing them. I thought it may be connected.
    If stress is the cause then the follow up test should be a dhea-s and free and total testosterone which should be bad......if so 50 mgs a day of zinc and adding adaptogens for six weeks then retest. If those labs are still low then i would consider replace of dhea and testosterone to jump start him

    Ask the cheese folks at whole foods. They all know which ones are
