I layed up for four years after college.
In the Walmart parking lot one night in 2017,
a few hours before I went home to sleep,
I consumed a 1lb bag of pretzels & 1.6 quarts of CALCIUM enriched orange juice
which was about 500 grams of sugar.
I woke up tingly and numb.
I started working in Sep 2018 and have medical benefits with my employer.
I didn't check my blood pressure even once until I was almost 29
after ongoing intracranial pressure that seems like encephalopathy set in last Aug,
and woke me up each night for about five days.
I don't know if it's diabetic, hepatic, hypertensive, or renal. It was 170/110.
I know way more about nutrition than I did then.
I know calcium is bad for blood pressure and magnesium is much preferable.
I know you don't need molybdenum often because your liver reuses it,
and selenium, manganese, chromium, and iron are similarly lower priority.
Mg, K, Cu, Zn, and I are the main minerals to worry about.
Vitamins A, D, and E are lower priority than B vitamins, C, and K.
Omega-3 and choline are concerns, but you'll get your aminos from pretty much whatever you eat.
I can't eat salt, excess calcium, or carbs without feeling pressure in my head
like a balloon inflated or a boiled egg slithered inside my brain causing it to press against the skull.
I also feel my heartbeat inside my skull, pressure behind+inside my eyes, and facial tingling when this happens.
I've had several episodes after trying to start an olive/avocado/algae oil keto where I felt
light headed, faint, and queasy that went away when I drank a couple swallows of something sugary.
