Have I ever told you about the crazy shit I take? No, I don't mean the Revlimid. I mean the vitamins, etc.
When I was being good and Atkins-ing, I took a multivitamin and a super-B and biotin. I had read biotin helped people on low carb diets or people who didn't process carbs correctly.
So then I go to the physical in June and she tells me that I am completely vitamin D deficient. So, she puts me on a prescription strength D for a while and when that's finished I am advised to take 1000 mg of D per day.
Then came the MM DX and based on input from doctors and what I have read I added some stuff.
Biotin - 1000 mcg
Ester-C - 500 mg with 55 mg calcium
(2) "D" - 2000 IU each
"E" - 400 IU
"B" super complex - that's the one Jen and I both notice if we miss it for any amount of time, we feel sluggish
alpha lipoic acid - 200 mg - this is supposed to help with neuropathy which my meds can cause.
Magnesium - 250 mg - Dr. Miller recommended this for leg cramps
Plus generic Prilosec for heartburn.....they were all peeved with my use of Rolaids, too much calcium.
Low dose aspirin for the CVTs and PEs I could be at risk for.
Now I am adding 1000 mg of Cinnamon.
I thought about germanium based on some stuff someone sent me, but Memorial Sloan Kettering says don't, so I won't.
And maybe something called Resveratrol, it's got grape seed extract....can't hurt.
It's probably just voodoo....but what the hell.
