Blood type diet debunked

Common Questions and Answers about Blood type diet debunked


Avatar f tn VITAMINS AND MINERALS The liver is the body's main warehouse for storing nutrients. It absorbs and stores excess vitamins and minerals from the blood. If a person's diet does not supply an adequate amount of these nutrients on a given day, the liver releases just the right amount of them into the bloodstream. However, the liver has only a limited capacity for processing vitamins and minerals. Any excess amounts that the liver is unable to process are generally eliminated from the body.

CVD is virtually unheard of in individuals with total cholesterol < 150 and strict vegetarians have 80% less chance of developing heart attack or stroke.
1344197 tn?1392822771 Steven Clinton, a committee member and a professor in the division of medical oncology at Ohio State University, says part of the uncertainty over the nutrient comes from the blood tests that are used to measure it. "There are no national guidelines for how vitamin D should be measured and what levels are appropriate," he says. Clinton recommends that national standards be developed.

Avatar n tn Are either of you having a lot of aspartame in your diet (diet drinks, diet products, etc.)? I know this is debunked by medical professionals, but three months ago I had similar problems (numbness in my torso and upper legs, tingling sensations, "electric shock" feelings through my legs, plugged ear, etc.) and finally went to the doctor. He diagnosed the start of MS.
Avatar n tn The neurologist I saw asked if I drink a lot of diet coke or have a lot of aspertame in my diet. I said no but apparently aspertame can cause MS type symptoms and many have been misdiagnosed due to this. I am definitely not saying this is what you have but I thought it would be worth mentioning.
Avatar n tn I still feel that the virus must have transferred blood to blood. Assuming there is no IVDU the doors are still wide open for blood transfer. Alcohol causes aggression in many -- lots of bloody fights, lots of falling and spilling blood . Probably more bloody intercourse as well. There are just too many opportunities for not remembering what went on. Once the little virus enters the body, it would have a wonderous breeding ground.
Avatar f tn For one thing, it keeps talking about calories as though they are a useful measure, and it mentions eating a low-fat diet as a good thing, which is by now a debunked approach. I had both articles in a row in my bookmarks, and posted the first thinking it was the second. The article I do recommend, and the one I found compelling, was the second one.

Avatar m tn This unique tropical fruit is extremely high in potassium yet low in salt, making it the perfect way to beat blood pressure. So much so, the US Food and Drug Administration has just allowed the banana industry to make official claims for the fruit's ability to reduce the risk of blood pressure and stroke. Brain Power: 200 students at a Twickenham (Middlesex) school were helped through their exams this year by eating bananas at breakfast, break, and lunch in a bid to boost their brain power.
Avatar n tn Turns out accupuncture lowers blood pressure in some people and I have low blood pressure to begin with. So take heed on the bp issue, that made me stop doing it.
Avatar m tn When my blood pressure first went up about six years ago, I immediately went on my little daily pill which keeps it handily under control. Will my diet, care of my bp, reliance on procrit in order to keep normal blood oxygenation in order to avoid taxing the heart and avoidance of smoking and other excess protect me from the damage to my blood vessels that caused my father a heart attack and other early havoc in his arteries, and caused my grandmother a quadruple bypass three years ago?
Avatar n tn There has NOT been a link between shots and autism. What you are finding are extremist type websites meant to create a sense of panick and alarm. Some children react to vaccinations, my sister did, but the vast majority do not and the vaccinations are well worth it versus the illnesses they prevent running rampant again. Research accedited medical websites like the CDC, the AAP, and the JAMA/AMA.
Avatar n tn Streaming nose, which I have to blow while coughing Coughing up loads of watery phelgm Occasionally retching and vomiting Streaming eyes which go blood shot Extremely itchy tickly throat Gasping for air between coughs I am now into the sixth month of this coughing. And although it is not as bad as it was a few months back it is still a major problem for me and makes me feel so down . Also I think my children need a break from rushing to grab me some water everytime I start to cough! lol ...
Avatar m tn I thought I would just start a new post rather than add to the post by Quix since it is getting long. First, the old vitamin D ranges given for blood levels were 15 to 60. Most hospital labs in the Northeast have updated the level of normal to be 30 to 60 ng/ml. A deficiency of vitamin D is now anything less than 20 ng/ml. insufficiency is 20 to 29 ng/ml. Possible toxicity is thought to be anything greater than 80 ng/ml, though that is somewhat debatable.
Avatar n tn 96. I went and had more blood work done monday and still have not received a call from my doctor. I am just nervous and feel bad. I was just talking with guys at work and they never heard of men having thyroid problems, and then I check on line and it is rare. I was just wondering if anyone here knows of any men who have thyroid problems? And if my 16.96 TSH is something to be concerned about. THANKS!
Avatar n tn Many of those alternative treatments have been evaluated by the medical research community and they can let you know if it is harmless, harmful or might actually have a minor effect in reducing the amount of virus in your blood. None, so far, has been found to kill the virus. Only interferon, in combination with other helper pharmaceutical drugs. has been proven to kill the virus.
1554262 tn?1374243601 on my thyroid (one spot does about 85% of the work of my thyroid and all blood levels are fine) which makes me look like I have a bit of an Adam's Apple. I was told by an internist that some day I will have to have 1/2 my thyroid out and that when that time presents itself, I will probably get shaky of hand. ...I have not as of yet (it's been over a year since that diagnosis). I also was told I have Barrett's Esophagus. You should look it up for details but here are some points to ponder.
Avatar n tn Their are pills that reduce nicotine craving,but your problem was originally smoking and the carcinogenic substances in tobacco smoke like tar,nickel carbonyl and others,also carbon monoxide is not good for your red blood cells oxygen carrying capacity.The pills are a bit suspicious,as they are Psychoactive and possibly worse than the gum(Nicotine).Of course you know Nicotine is a poison,with no known medicinal use.
931415 tn?1244681111 ” If she drinks wine, she goes to her doctor to rejuvenate her liver with an intravenous drip of vitamin C. If she’s exposed to cigarette smoke, she has her blood chemically cleaned with chelation therapy. In the time that’s left over, she eats right and exercises, and relieves stress by standing on her head. Somers makes astounding claims about the ability of hormones to treat almost anything that ails the female body. She believes they block disease and will double her life span.
436516 tn?1382388265 I'm so glad I'm not alone. I started coughing in October 2007. It started as a bronchitis type cold, then just stayed as the typical tickle cough described by most of you. Its starts whenever it wants, for NO reason... A horrid tickle/sting in my throat which no matter how hard you try to ignore or fight it, you start coughing...and coughing... and coughing. Due to the cough my bladder is rebelling, my eyes water constantly, and occasionally vomit.
Avatar n tn They say she has sarcoi (excuse my spelling) but the medications they gave her actually just seem to make her worse, they had put her on this certain medication and it ended up makin her blood pressure go up, and she started to have blurry vision and see light streaks, and she was disoriented she went to the hospital her bp was 205 over 105 , she was pretty much on her way to having a heart attack.
Avatar f tn I hate to be the bearer of bad news but it is possible you will never gain feeling. I had a "average" removal of my wisdom teeth (impacted).. I stayed awake through the procedure( not a great idea) Next month it will be a year since I have have had any feeling in the right side of my tongue, and severe nerve damage over my entire bottom gums and my right upper face... nerves are weird...My days are a constant battle of pain and burning sensations...
