Re: LDL and fats, two new studies

Therein lies the rub. Oxalate mast cell degranulation also releases histamine. Whereas I never, ever had a histamine problem at all prior to oxalate toxicity I now seem unable to tolerate fish.

Re: Jim's Journey

I also have oxalate issues although they are body-side due to antibiotics depleting Oxalobacter and not kidney stones.
