I use the regular Sudafed - the ID one. Actually its Walmart's generic brand.
Lynda, what steps do you take now for your constipation, specifically?
they say no more than 600 at a time, I don't know if anyone has any proof for that???? Calcium is suppose to be a bit of a hog with other minerals for the receptors, I've heard ...
lacognata, I know you said you have tried everything, but have you tried taking 100k dry A in the middle of the night (without any food). This technique helped me get my D levels up.
how many batches are you taking per day? It might be one particular one that is bothering you, like zinc, for instance. But I think it would be fine to spread them out during 15 to 30 minutes after a meal. Just don't forget. I have often made the mistake of trying to get my vitamins down when there just wasn't enough room left in my tummy. I felt like And you might want to disolve Calcium Citrate horse pills on a spoon with a little water.
Hi Jazzy, If you think your lab missed running a lab test that was on the orders, just tell them and they will do it without you having to get new lab orders. That happened to me once.
I'd go with the 100K daily...just from my own experience with getting my D up. I was too conservative initally.
Hi Becky, you might like to read this:
It would seem to agree with your endo's statement.
As far as you bf's GP, I've been hearing a lot of talk about normies getting their Calcium from food more so than supplements. Maybe this GP is of that school....
leanmama, hey, it's like that song "So you had a bad day."
Maybe Michelle did, too. I happens to all of us, right? So just pick yourself up by the bootstraps and move on.
I remember the day Scott ask Vitalady to come to our board and I've got to say that since then I've been singing "Halleluiah!"
Of all the words of advice, I think if you can only remember one thing the first couple days, remember
sip, sip sip
Just lots of tiny sips add up. Dehydration is bad news, so try to avoid it. When you get home, even set an alarm to wake yourself up to sip. Otherwise you will sleep way too long.
Best of luck!
What time of day was the blood drawn for your latest PTH?
Interesting tidbit in here about the dosage used in a 1981 study of Strontium Gluconate....
??? seems like you should have been referred to a hemotologist
Aww, bean, I'm sorry. You just call that doc and demand something that will help. Be a real pain in the arse. Opps, poor choice of words, huh?
Estherjane, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I hope things will get a little better for you as time passes. It must be hard. I ususally light several matches and candles and blow them out and then repeat untill there is a little smoke in the room and that covers up the bad smell. It will float through the house, too.
I'm not quite constipated, but it's definitely a struggle, if you know what I mean!!
Barb, let that be a big red flag. If its a struggle now, you are headed for trouble. Trouble you don't want like hemoroids and tears. One day it will just happen and then it is too late. It's not a slow process. Eat some butter, mayo, oil, or whatever now.
Yeah, I'm sure I did. But you can call the Westmount Surgical Centre and ask what they charge.
Get some Zofran, or something. In the mean time try ginger tea or peppermint. Don't get dehydrated, it will just make it worse. Hope you feel better soon. :o)
It's great to hear you are doing well and home from the hospital. With the pain pills, you may find yourself sleeping too long without fluids. You can set an alarm to get up and just drink. Keep us posted on how you are doing. :o)
