Submitted by mlandstra on Tue, 2017-12-19 19:22

Hi all,https://www.medpagetoday.com/Endocrinology/GeneralEndocrinology/68137?i… seems that biotin supplementation above 10 mg/day can interfere with thyroid hormone tests. Perhaps vit D & PSA as well?To be sure we should stop using biotin at least a week before getting any of these tests.Just FYI!Mark

Few questions about chlamydia trachomatis

Submitted by Avocado on Sun, 2017-03-05 15:32

Hello to everyone.First of all I am very sorry to write in this forum, I am fully aware, that it is dedicated to CPN and not chlamydia trachomatis, but maybe someone would still be able to share some knowledge about it.I am struggling with CTR for about 3 months, trying to read as much as I can, but in the end I have just a huge mess in my head. I have few questions, but before writing them, I would briefly describe my situation.

Porphyria Help

Submitted by kimomile on Wed, 2015-07-15 02:21

I am really struggling and need some guidance.  I believe that I am dealing with porphyria, but can't seem to get a handle on it.  I have read ALL of the discussions on this condition in the handbook.  I just feel lost.  For almost a week and a half I have been dealing with some crazy symptoms, and I believe they are porphria, but I just don't know.  I've had chest pain, anxiety, stomach pain (like I got punched in the gut) no appetite, body agitation, memory problems, weakness, back pain (like I got punched in the back) and fatigue.

Got sick in 2001 after infection with Mycoplasma, Chlamydia pneumoniae and Epstein-Barr.Have over the years been diagnosed with ME, Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome, ADD and OCD.Started CAP in october 2013.

It is hard beeing responsible for your own treatment. When I use flagyl I get so confused and feel like I am not doing it right.

I am very sick and think maybe I have a bacterial infection baseline adding to a lot of other things

Submitted by t316 on Sun, 2015-02-22 09:37

I am not on CAPs, but have CNS/autoimmune like mystery symtoms that I attribute to some bacterial or viral infection I may have gotten in my childhood. I grew up in an Eastern European country with most probably lots of chemical and pesticide exposure. I also had 10+ amalgam fillings starting at the age of 9 and until about 25, at which point they were incorrecty removed (no amalgam vapor protection).

Treating Chronic Cystitis

Submitted by Louise on Mon, 2015-01-19 12:41

Treating Chronic CystitisHere is a q and a from the Blaylock Wellness Report (Dec 2014) that a few folks might find interesting;Apigenin removes the biofilm that keeps antibiotics from curing this condition.Here is a scientific reference about the substance;http://pubchem.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/compound/apigenin#section=Mechanism-of-… have to say that I had never read or heard that word until today.  This is not a new substance  and for those that cannot get rid of chronic cystitis I think to few docs are awara of this substance.    Swanson Vitimins apparently markets it.  Personally I am open to neutracuticals it is just where do you get somewhat reliable info.???  Louise

New and Need Help

Submitted by sandyg on Tue, 2014-12-30 20:37

Hi everyone, I have recently joined this group and have been trying to read up on CPN as much as I can, I have been suffering with Arthritis for near on 35yrs, gradually more joints are being affected, plus numerous other health complaints, and found out earlier in the year that I am HLAB27 and DRB 1*01:01 and DRB1* 11:01 positive, so it does appear that I have an autoimmune disease going on.I'm in Australia and it's hard to find a doctor who is willing to help or even understand about intracellular bacteria, the closest I got was a Rheumy who did prescribe me Doxycycline on my request,but unfortunately I had to stop taking it on a couple of occasions and only took it for about 3mths at a time.
