You've tapped into a subject that has gotten some interest here recently, although the possible link with ketosis is a new and intriguing idea.

Thanks NF52!

Re: My !POSITIVE! test results for mycotoxins testing through Great Plains Laboratory

Hi, Just adding a few things I've discovered while battling my own mold illness. While there are certain foods to avoid for their ochratoxin content, especially oat-based cereals, pork, and wine , there may also be foods that promote detoxification . I also learned recently that milk thistle (Silym...

Re: My !POSITIVE! test results for mycotoxins testing through Great Plains Laboratory

Hi The Brain! I hope you're continuing to improve through your admirable dedication to doing so! During your treatment for ochratoxin, did anyone suggest you remove certain foods from your diet that are more likely to carry it; e.g., grains? Or was your diet already without such foods? I'm trying t...

Re: ApoE4/4 may have greater risk of COVID brain microvascular injury and neuroinflammation

Yes, I did have my hsCRP tested during my mold illness. My test result was always normal (except for that one time I fell). However, it's not one of the markers that are tested specifically for mold illness. You'd think it would be elevated, but it wasn't. Maybe the fish oil, curcumin, etc. I take ...

Re: Osteoarthritis

As I understand it, osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis have different causes. Osteoarthritis is caused by mechanical wear and tear on joints. Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease in which the body's own immune system attacks the body's joints. I'm not that familiar with it, but there ...

Re: ApoE4/4 may have greater risk of COVID brain microvascular injury and neuroinflammation

My hsCRP has always been low when tested, except for one time. That time, I’d been tested a day or two after falling hard on my right knee and banging it up pretty bad. Thanks, that's interesting. Did you have it tested when you had mold illness? I don't normally hear it mentioned in that context, ...

Re: Moving a loved one and re-homing a pet

Thanks, Nords. Certainly something we need to reassure her, that her grandnephew and wife will take good care of Charlie. I'm guessing they would be happy to send a picture now and then until she starts running with the bingo ladies. She loves bingo! I'm not sure this idea would work, but I'll just...

Re: Moving a loved one and re-homing a pet

Try having the new owner come for extended visits with the pet, take the animal for walks and care for it in the new home for short periods before full-time ownership begins. Small steps are easier on everyone involved compared to an abrupt change. Thanks, NF52, I read that page, too. My brother-in...
