  1. I mentioned (look into my profile history and all my messages) that I was suspicious of having low libido, the sexual dysfunction caused by Accutane. So I was trying to change a lot of things to see how my body would react. I did a recent blood test, days ago. Not under ideal conditions, since I haven't been following my routine lately (going to bed and waking up in the morning in the usual times), and last days I was vomiting probably due to food poisoning (I am now fine). Also haven't eve
  2. What about drinking alkaline water? I heard some conflicting opinions (like this one) claiming it's just a fad and might end up being worse (in health terms) for some people. Well, at least some say it's worse to do it with a machine rather than buying water that already has a higher pH, from the supermarket. The problem are the costs... P.S. I found a thread discussing this here:
  3. About tinnitus, you might want to look into this... https://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2018/07/26/how-to-treat-tinnitus.aspx Especially the part where it says excessive EMF exposure might account for this symptom. Tips to reduce it can be found here: https://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2019/01/15/health-effects-of-emf-exposure.aspx One thing I always wanted to ask: is it possible that interrupting any Accutane treatment when you are half there (let's sa
  4. Aaron: if it does then it would be interesting to see my next blood tests, because prior to taking zinc my estrogen levels were low. And this is what happens when a man has low estradiol: https://www.renalandurologynews.com/home/departments/mens-health-update/hypogonadism/low-estrogen-explains-some-hypogonadal-symptoms-in-men/ https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2013/09/11/estrogen-aging-men/2794243/ https://www.medpagetoday.org/endocrinology/generalendocrinology/41551?v
  5. I've been taking zinc bisglycinate in the last 5 months. Every single day, 7 mg. Also zinc picolinate. There are days I take 15 mg from the latter. Never had any issue (RDA is 11 mg). Maybe it's the type of ZINC you took or the dose from all these vitamins? I find that most bottles sold in the U.S. and Europe exaggerate a lot, not to mention the crap they put as additives and fillers in them (like soybean oil in vitamin D-3...), if that's the case you can always go to a compounding pharmacy.
  6. I eat beef liver 1 or 2 times a week because it has too much vitamin A. It's a superfood packed with multivitamins, however taking vitamin A in excess (from foods!) is harmful (the same for B-6, which I mentioned in my previous posts. BTW after all this time I am 100% cured of that odd sensation in my left index finger, perhaps caused by this excessive dose I took). https://www.enviromedica.com/learn/beef-liver-natures-perfect-food/ A better idea for vitamin A absorption (which also ha
  7. It would be interesting to try the KETO diet instead of LOW-CARB. These are not the same: https://www.amplemeal.com/blogs/home/keto-vs-low-carb-whats-difference Each one is suited for a different goal: https://www.amplemeal.com/blogs/home/keto-vs-low-carb-whats-difference I am trying healthy KETO now - no plans to do this forever, it would be an interesting experiment to achieve my goal to get rid of the belly fat I still have - even though I have a normal weight I never managed to a
  8. It would be logic to assume that for some it won't do much good to just take a supplement with a dose that would benefit a person that never used Accutane and it's perfectly healthy. So don't assume what worked for me will do for you. And for few Accutane users the higher dose of this drug was more devastating for them (I took 40 mg). Sometimes there's need to increase how much vitamins we take due to what I said before: malabsorption syndrome, some damage to the liver or you are not taking
  9. About the sexual dysfunction I discussed before (look into my profile, and all my previous posts), I am 99% sure my libido increased after the changes I did, including taking tribulus terrestris twice a day (as recommended by the manufacturer - I bought the Optimum Nutrition bottle). I'll do a new blood test to see how my hormone levels have changed, in the upcoming weeks. One thing I didn't consider at the time but I will now is following a KETO diet to lose this belly I have (that I can't
  10. Malabsorption syndrome can be caused by many things... this link lists all of them, what kind of tests can be done to diagnose your specific problem (it isn't just taking your blood...) and what is recommended to fix this: https://www.healthline.com/health/malabsorption#risk-factors The interesting part is that you may have end up having to take a higher dose of a vitamin to compensate for your health problem: "Your dietitian may recommend high doses of vitamins or other nutrients to
  11. Have you tried probiotics? I was prescribed once by my nutritionist but didn’t take since I don’t have a problem in that area, and it was a little expensive. I mean in form of supplement, not fermented foods and stuff like Kombucha and Kefir, which aren't exactly easy to find. Also, eating a lot of sugar or artificial sweeteners may cause gut dysbiosis, which is an imbalance of gut microbes. Too much antibiotics and lack of exercise and proper sleep can cause some damage, too, that’s why I empha
  12. Thick blood? You need to perform a few tests. Shortness of breath is one of the symptoms from this: ********** - Complete blood count: This test screens for the presence of red blood cells and platelets in the blood. High hemoglobin and hematocrit levels could indicate the presence of a condition like polycythemia vera. - Activated protein C resistance: This tests for the presence of factor V Leiden. - Prothrombin G20210A mutation testing: This determines the presence of antithrombin,
  13. Here's a warning for those with sexual dysfunction, low libido and lower testosterone, caused by Accutane: Taking Vitamin B-6 to lower prolactin and raise libido was a bad idea. https://www.forbes.com/sites/stevensalzberg/2013/10/07/the-top-five-vitamins-you-should-not-take/#eaed48b4a27f (This first link summarizes what I am going to say next). And trusting these gurus from the internet that want us to buy their books and supplements (and subscribe to their Youtube channels)
  14. About dry lips, I suggest you all take a good look if you have any vitamin deficiency, since vitamin B also contributes to healthy skin, a deficiency can cause a variety of skin problems such as acne, split lips, dryness, and rashes. Low levels of zinc and iron can also lead to split lips, especially at the corners of the mouth. My advice is to take a complex B like this one, in this case at least 1 pill everyday, I am thinking 2 it's too much: https://www.evitamins.com/b-complex-c-thompson
  15. Here's what you can do (read the italic part): https://bit.ly/35JegEy Also, I recommend reading my previous posts, in them I explain what I am currently doing to improve my health in terms of increasing testosterone/libido (for example: my last addition to my diet is MACA POWDER). Just be very careful of anything interfering/interacting in the wrong way with any med you are taking. I would recommend that you start supplementing with vitamin D-3 right away. Low vitamin D = low test
