If you ever had (from your entire past) a deficiency or excess you choose one of those (red or blue) and leave the normal result (black) unchecked.

Votes can be changed anytime by pressing remove vote (you will remove your entire selection).

Deficiency means a lower level than the lower limit of the normal reference range.

Excess means a higher level than the upper limit of the normal reference range.

Just ignore the 4th option 'not tested' for every vitamin/mineral, I can't delete it from the poll ('Total members voted' at bottom already indicates the amount of people that did not test for the specific vitamin when comparing it to the votes on deficiency, excess and normal combined).

If you had a history of both a deficiency and excess then only select the one that was measured first. Example: Vitamin D deficiency at age 10 and vitamin D excess at age 16 ---> select only the vitamin D deficiency.

Sources (Chemical names included, like B3 = niacin etc):

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vitamin

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mineral_(nutrient)

Most are measured in ion form. I'm not sure which ones, names could be slightly different as in bromine and bromide.

Also I haven't checked if deficiencies or excesses exist for all of the parameters. If some options are invalid then just ignore them.

Most of my vitamins and minerals are low presumably because of poor digestion due to leaky gut.

Thanks, Limejuice.
10 years of significant POIS-reduction, treatment consisting of daily (365 days/year) testosterone patches.

TRT must be checked out carefully with your doctor due to fertility, cardiac and other risks.

40+ years of severe 4-days-POIS, married, raised a family, started/ran a business

"...iron malabsorption appears most common and usually responds to simple H1/H2 histamine receptor blockade."

"Other observed deficiencies include copper and assorted B vitamins."

"...vitamine D deficiency by laboratoria criteria is often present in MCAS [192], though often with no clear correlation to clinical effects..."

Same here, low on all vitamins/minerals according to hair-analysis.

Intracellular iron regulation, infections and the effect of LPS endotoxins

"Withholding iron from potential pathogens is a host defense strategy."

"As alluded to earlier, iron is essential for the survival and growth of almost all organisms. Furthermore, an important strategy of mammalian antimicrobial defense is based on depriving pathogens of this essential nutrient"

It may be interesting, but these are also three of the most common deficiencies in the general population, if I'm not mistaken.

Trying to fix my folate deficiency I had the worst allergic reaction of my life last night to guess what: folic acid 5mg, I was covered head to toe in itchy red rashes unraised, I've never had rashes so bad.

Recognition and Management of Medication Excipient Reactivity in Patients With Mast Cell Activation Syndrome

Have you experimented with individual B vitamins? I've read that B1 (Thiamine) can affect breathing at night.
I've tried a B complex and had a bad reaction. I am looking at individual B vitamins now.
Yep same here vitamine B complex gives me a bad reaction as well, tested this multiple times. I haven't tried testing them separately for long periods.

I used to take vitamins B and never had any problem with them, and now, after the bleach exposure, I can't tolerate them, they give me POIS symptoms - plus a killer headache and insomnia. And it seems that my main symptom, fever, is gone, I never get it anymore, not even after an orgasm.

By the way, D3 aggravates my inflammation!

"Ive tried K2 mk7 and mk4 bit got terrible side effects so I decided to try the regular type. ...did not react well to Vitamin D"
Vit K1 helped him.

Too bad for me that cbd does not work for me anymore. I think I am allergic for things that go with the cbd. I am also allergic for vitamin D.

I tried two types of vitamin d3, one with K2 mk7 and one with k2 mk4, I didn't feel good on either. I am interested to try vitamin k1 and vitamin d2, vegan d3.
