I put together vitamins for the next 2 months in my MedCenters. It seems to get easier and easier. I had to double check my list because I thought I couldn't be done that quickly, Everything in it's place and nothing that I needed to run out and buy. A

Hi all,

 

     I'll be doing a road trip from Cleveland, Ohio to Naples Florida next week. I'm trying to figure out if 
there is anything I left off my DS packing list.  I plan to do do 3 or 4 days down there stopping along the way

Hi all,

   I've been working all summer to be able to ride a 25 mile course that is pretty hilly. It was last week and while I finished the 25 (yea me) the last 3 miles were torture and pretty much left me wasted for the rest of the day and

Just finished loading my organizers for the next two months. It always gives me a sense of satisfaction to be prepared. Just that kind of personality I guess.

I'm pretty laid back about vitamins now after 3.5 years. The only real reason my v

I'm not usually motivated to bring up the DS or any WLS unless someone else brings it up. I have no
problem talking about it and I am open with the people I know. It's just sometimes you see someone
that has ruled out WLS surgery because of t

I've been getting back into using MyFitnessPal for tracking. Wanting to keep track of my protein and potassium. I 
recently couldn't figure out why my protein levels were so low on several days. It turns out that when I added meatloaf,

I was surprised they didn't touch on WLS but so many other things touched me that I

Finally done with the doxycycline. I've been on what seems a multitude of antibiotics over the past three years of my DS and this was by far the worst to accomodate with my vitamin schedule.  2 tablets a day and no calcium, etc 4 hours before or after.

I just finished setting up my vitamins for the next 2 months. For me it makes it much easier to have everything set up in advance. I have 2 MedCentre vitamin organizers that I use and they work pretty well for me.

What does everyone else do????

Anyone have any issues of your Potassium going up without taking any supplements? I know I get some
in my multi but my last 2 labs have shown high levels of potassium and I'm not quite sure what I can do 
about it, if anything.  I'm not eatin

This is all about my feet so if that is TMI then no worries just go on to  the next post. I just need to vent a little. Not quite sure why but I'm doing it anyway.

Headed to the podiatrist tomorrow. I really screwed my feet pre-op and while

I just got back my 3 year labs and everything is looking good. I thought people might find it interesting or open up some discussion on what could be better.

Hi all,   I haven't been on for a while but plan to change that . :)

I celebrated by biking outside 23 miles - just be cause I could and it finally warmed up around Cleveland.
A little ambitious for the start of my biking season but it mad

I'm happy this morning. Finished setting up my vitamins and meds for the next two months. It makes it so much easier for me to handle this way.

Everyone does something different but I like the MedCentre organizers. Easier to use once I had a st

I'm about 2.5 years out from my DS. I currently take about 200 mg mag glycinate per day. Lately I try and split this out from my calcium because I understand that at some level they compete for absorption. I don't always do that because I wonder if the

Never the most prompt person I meant to do this when I got back but a week and a half later better late than never. I spent 6 days in Naples Florida with my brother and my nephew and it was great.
I'm 2.5 years post-op and I haven't traveled for a

I've been going around and around, in a technical way, about the best way to take fat soluble vitamins (ADEK) especially the water miscible ones we get from Biotech.

It's very clear not to take any gel caps. Very long standing advice. It is

At my last annual blood tests they found my TSH levels were high pointing to an underactive thyroid. My PCP put me on sythroid with a followup in September but he is retiring so I took it to my endocrinologist and she warned me about taking centrum sil
