D-Ribose Bringing CPn Out Of Cryptic Form?
Paula has been starting to use d-ribose primarily to increase energy and reduce porphyrin production.
As you may know, she does have a lot of trouble tollerating new supplements which is why we add anything new, very slowly.
She is currently putting 1.25 grams of powder into a 75ml bottle of water and taking a few slogs. Over the past couple of days, her tollerance level has increased, as previously she would get a large increase in fatigue when taking it. She has attempted to take ribose a few times these last couple of weeks, but had reactions to it.
These reactions seemed to have now calmed down today - EXCEPT after she takes the Doxy and Roxy. She will take a slog of ribose water about 30 minutes before the abx, and then swallow the abx using the same water. Within 10 mins or so of taking the abx, she will crash, meaning greatly increased fatigue, other CFS symptoms, and nausea. About an hour later her fatigue will abate somewhat and then she will be back to her usual energy level. She will then continue taking the ribose water ad hoc without as much reaction. She hasn't crashed after the abx like this for quite a while.
So could this be die-off of new RBs (previously cryptic)?
I know it is early days. She has only been taking the ribose for 2 days, but it is quite a co-incidence that she is starting to tollerate the ribose a bit more now and has had what could be short term die-off reactions to the abx for both of her doses today.
Maybe ribose can be used instead of pyruvate to bring cryptic CPn out of hiding?
Food for thought.
