    I found Choco's posts defensive and aggressive at first but now I have the context to understand the reason why - the resistance from low-carb fundamentalists.

    I find your recent comments on this thread equally aggressive and certainly far less rational in comparison to Choco's. Choco has an excellent handle on the science, and that matters, whether you like it or not.

Get your cortisol, adrenaline, serotonin and blood CO2 levels checked. I mean c'mon, we're obsessed about our HDL's and triglycerides around here right? Suddenly adding 4 little things to the list is too much? I bet your first 3 will be high and your CO2 will be in the low 20's


    Yeah, I agree, since stress hormones are interconnected and promote each other in cycles, and loops, it causes nothing but prolonged degeneration.

    Yeah but do you think that telling those of us that our experiences are wrong is OK?

    But I do feel good, and can sleep etc etc among all the other things i mentioned recently. Does this look like my body is suffering, seriously?
    This is just irresponsibility. I don't think anyone can take you seriously at all anymore after this statement. You don't need to go to a doctor to a get a lab test, btw.

    Some symptoms are only noticeable after they accumulate over time.

    Um here in Aus you do. But thanks.
    Its not irresponsible. Sick people go to the Dr, I feel perfectly fine. If I don't, then yes I will go.
    Geez.

    Because of my particular health issues and medications I have my CO2 tested regularly (bi-monthly to tri-monthly when I see my doc I have to hit the vampires too).
    The normal range for CO2 is 23-29 mEq/L.
    I always test in the 25-28 range... hardly "low".
    My neurologist is very happy.

    I'd be willing to bet that my cortisol, adrenaline, serotonin are just fine too.
    BTW, do you know the symptoms that you will generally be showing if your serotonin is high enough to test high, or who your doctor will be referring you to? Just askin.

    Oh, and severe bloating from a specific macronutrient isn't a sign to you that you're not as fine as you claim to feel?

    And, no you don't. You can order kits online. I'm staring at mine right here.

    I have looked before.

    Yes i feel like I also got bloated after the pumpkin and sweet potato the other night, but it was temporary and feel much better now.
    So yeah, sick of explaining. This is right for me. That is all that matters to me.

    Pretty sure lef.org will ship to Australia. I don't know, your customs are jacked up.

    Oh so I can send my blood back to the US?
    Hmm doubtful. Doesn't matter, am not testing for anything at this stage.
    BTW I have had blood tests in the past, when I felt like crap eating all those amazing carbs. And every thing was "normal" it was the crappy carbs making me feel bad.
