Introduction, Forum Rules and Admins Messages / Re: Admin Corner
« Last post by demografx on Today at 12:33:09 AM »

Unfortunately, some of us have needed this message from time to time. This is being posted because none of the admins/mods here are really trained to respond to this level of POIS despondency.


I texted the Suicide Prevention Hotline
(by texting Hello to 741741) to test their system.

It works well.

They also offered me this description to post @ POISCenter:

"We are a support line for all ages, providing free, 24/7 crisis support through text messaging. Learn more at:

Relationships / Re: my life is destroyed

Now my life is ruined. I don't have the courage to bear the pressure during my doctoral study. I don't have the courage to stay away from the places I know

Hang on, there Lihua.
First, abstain as much as you can, and also, try to find a method that at least reduces a part of your symptoms.  Did you try any method in the POIS Types Chart, at https://poiscenter.com/forums/index.php?topic=2338.msg19448#msg19448 ?
There are some very accessible ones, like using niacin, or using fenugreek and garlic.  Take a look at the chart.

And try to get as much sleep as you can, it helps a lot.

I always study hard and plan to get a PhD degree in USA. POIS destroy everything. I have to be single in my life and live like a mouse. I am just a piece of shit.

One factor to consider is that forum members who consider themselves "cured" have no real motivation to post here any more.
Or those who are so ill that they do not have the energy to write.

I agree! :)

Lifestyle Diary and POIS Summaries / Re: IronFeather's case (female, 25 years old)

Look at her medical data, abnormal results. She had low urea (Should it not be high in Hyperammonia?). Acetone in urine was high 60 mg/dl (0-5). The latter can be elevated when you are on a ketodiet if I’m not mistaken. She also said she ate for two people. People complain of bad body odor, I wonder if these things are related. She is also skinny. Is the body unable to metabolize carbs properly leading to ketosis?

There are several other conditions that may contribute to the presence of ketones in a person's urine. Among them are pregnancy, breastfeeding, and sometimes even fever. Each of these conditions can temporarily raise a person’s metabolism. When this happens, a person either eats more to compensate for the body burning glucose at a faster rate, or goes into ketosis, with the accompanying presence of acetone in urine.

Doesn’t glutamine interfere with glycolysis?
Maybe POIS activates ketosis due to hypermetabolism.

IronFeather, interesting points. Your condition is quite severe, I'm really hoping you get to the bottom of what is going on. At least with many of us POIS is a temporary condition.  It has truly been horrible but you are suffering even more.  The body is quite complex but I run with the hope that the answer to the puzzle might be simple after all. Trying make sense of an unknown condition can be quite overwhelming. For many years I gave up on it and just resolved to stay chaste.  I don't come around here very often as thinking about it too much can drag me down.

Some people on the forum have theorized that SIBO could be a contributing factor to POIS. Here is a lady who had hyperammonia that caused swelling in the brain following surgery. SIBO is listed as a possible reason, along with low arginine.
