  1. Just got mine today. F 25OH Vitamin D 62 30-100 (ng/mL) So I guess that is good. I take 2,000 IU a day.
  2. Just a quick look. The main consequence of vitamin D toxicity is a buildup of calcium in your blood (hypercalcemia), which can cause nausea and vomiting, weakness, and frequent urination. Vitamin D toxicity might progress to bone pain and kidney problems, such as the formation of calcium stones. And another: However, taking too much vitamin D in the form of supplements can be harmful. Children age 9 years and older, adults, and pregnant and breastfeeding women who take more than 4,000 IU a day of vitamin D might experience: Nausea and vomiting Poor appetite and weight loss Constipation Weakness Confusion and disorientation Heart rhythm problems Kidney stones and kidney damage
  3. My wife had some numbers that were a little high and with my cholesterol numbers, we have been weeding out more and more processed and high sodium foods. It does make it more of a pain in the butt to eat day to day but we'll live.
  4. Thanks, I generally avoid any drug (apart from mild antibiotics) unless everything else won't work and it's very necessary.
  5. Years ago I read that soy causes low testosterone and really doesn't look appealing so I've never tried it. If I can use it in place of eggs and don't hate it, might be worth a try. Let me know your trick. https://www.mensjournal.com/health-fitness/how-much-soy-can-you-really-eat-before-it-affects-your-testosterone-w479484
  6. Any foods shown to lower Cholesterol?
  7. There sure is conflicting information on eggs out there.
  8. So I haven't been to the doctor in about three years so I thought it wouldn't hurt to go. All my specs (blood work) came back within range except for Cholesterol, LDL Calculated and NonHDL Cholesterol. Triglycerides, VLDL, HDL and Chol/HDL Ratio all within range. I haven't spoken to the Doc yet about it but I'm sure I can improve the numbers with diet. So I normally eat two or more eggs everyday so now I only eat one and haven't ate red meat or pork in years. I force myself to eat broccoli almost daily with other veggie's and could lose five pounds or so which I will do. Any suggestions to improve my numbers without becoming a rabbit?
  9. Just as a side note, we have checking all foods lately for sodium content and I was shocked when I looked at the spaghetti sauce we had, 600mg per serving and I'm guessing we would consume more than one serving. Just about everything packaged is loaded with it.
  10. Good stuff Scott. I word of advise about weight lifting as you age, be sure to work up slowly. Once I hit 60, had a warning sign trying to push more than I should have while bench pressing even though I have been doing it most of my life. It scared me enough that I have become content with moderate weight.
  11. But you know while you heard from someone that wasn't grateful for the info you provided there was others in the background that was helped by it.
  12. Now I feel bad about making you more work. Thank you for keeping the wheels turning. Edit: Just looked at my Droid pic size not that I post many photos from it here, 12.6mp. What size do you recommend?
  13. That would be scary not having at least one to jump on when nice riding days come around. Riding brings a certain pleasure that is different from anything else.
  14. I wonder how many other folks here are close to maxing out their space? Maybe this should be information that everyone should know, like you could start an informational thread on the subject? I myself never thought about this subject here and wouldn't knowingly do something that would increase cost. You can't know you are doing wrong unless you know you are doing wrong.
  15. I would go clear but with your color either would look OK.
  16. There are many things that I could live without that would save me more money than the meat I eat daily but few would make my life less enjoyable as going meatless. My mother in-law will be 95 (hopefully) in August eating like a regular American her full life. Each to his own. I'm glad you found something that works well for you and can live with.
  17. It's been a few years but I remember it's main problem was trying to accelerate from idle. Just so we are talking about the same part it's #41 in the part diagram.
  18. I always have tubes of paintable white latex caulk in stock because it is so useful and they end up sitting for years without issue. Where was yours stored, a hot garage? Mine is in the cool of the cellar.
