Thu, Oct 17 9:44am · Chronically ill without diagnosis and don’t know what to do next in Just Want to Talk

Nice to finally know what is wrong. Yes, reading labels is good. Just about all packaged foods are enriched. Aldi's has foreign made (German foods usually) that are not enriched. Aldi's is a supermarket chain in the midwest and here in Maryland also but is German based. There are some graham crackers that are not enriched also. It will be a long process and may be slow to feel better as you stop the enriched foods and that will allow the vitamins and nutrients to get into your body and nourish it the way it is need. Can't go wrong with meat/fish, potatoes, and fresh veggies and that is what she/we eat all the time now. Canned soups sometimes have flour in them so are enriched so watch out for that. Hope this is helpful and let me know if have any questions. An issue is not taking anything that has folic acid in it but need to take natural folates and she takes folate in dose of 800mcg made by Solgar(?) and that helps her. Happy to call and have you talk to her if desired. Let me know. best wishes.

Tue, Mar 5 8:38am · Hyperhomocysteinemia with MTHFR C677T mutations. Does anyone have this in Depression & Anxiety

Hi, my wife and her three daughters have this. she had done a lot of research and her eating habits have changed drastically in not eating any foods with enriched flour or anything enriched. She has the double gene mutation. A lot of people are helped by following the gluten free diet since it eliminates enriched food from her diet but it is the enriched part that is an issue not the gluten. If you google MTFHR, there are many references and places to read. Most doctors do not know about this. She was diagnosed at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore. She has found one person who works in a local pharmacy that has been a great help in knowing what to do. Avoid folic acid which is a lot of what is in enriched food items. You want the natural folate not the synthetic folic acid. The natural folate will be absorbed by your body but the folic acid will not be absorbed since the MTFHR gene will block it. This is an on going issue and she would be happy to talk to you more about this. Symptoms were exhaustion and her body felt like it was trying to kill her but her blood tests came back ok but the nutrients in the blood were not being absorbed by the body. An "extreme" blood test is needed to determine what is being absorbed by the body not just what is in the blood. MTFHR is genetic and can be passed down to kids. This problem can also have significant implications for women interested in having children. has articles on this and to search. Let me know any other questions.

hi, I am a candidate for bladder/prostate and bowel removal. somewhat concerned on how this will impact sex life. yes, at my age, I have a sex life. Have used viagara and cialis before and not had any luck. do take penile injections now that work wonderful. blood flow to penis shouldn't be impacted and don't ejaculate when orgasm now. doctor says not and issue, right, he isn't having the surgery and injections should still work. Is that true?

present next door neighbors have no kids by choice. I dated an up and coming opera singer in college and she had tubes tied at age 21 and said never regretted it. Married to her singing and career. She is now 71 and is happy with that decision. She never married.

Sat, Feb 16 2:12pm · Down in the dumps again – challenges with adult children in Depression & Anxiety

One of the newspaper Ann Landers type had a survey on whether they would have kids. Interesting. Over 70% said would have kids. Those that didn't have kids, still liked that decision. Letters to her still discuss that topic and how it fared. Have 4 daughters and would do it again. Wife has 3 daughters and probably wouldn't have kids. Each to his/her own.
