"C4a level was high. 4876"
Thats not real high, but you still have inflammation of some type, lyme mold or candida are the popular ones for this. I was 55,000 one time.
Where are the free t3 and free t4 in their ranges. Top, middle or bottom? Some Drs forget that Thyroid issues are not like an on/off switch, they are more like a variable dimmer.
"suffer fatigue, motor issues, brain fog" - why i asked about
And those three can also be part of a malfunctioning Krebs Cycle - mostly enzymes and acids which effect mental / nuero, and motor/muscle skills. Cant find Decartes post, but I will mention the content and add to it:
Acetylcholine, which comes from choline and Acetyl CoA.
These are found to be low in Alzheimer's patients whose symptoms share similar Krebs cycle defects as some lymies. The sleep agent Benadryl also has the same effect, as it lowers Choline until it wears off. Its been known that the hangover cure for Benadryl is to take choline the next morning.
Choline boost mental ability, awakeness, sharpness, and motor control.
Consider Benadryl lowers choline, thus creates opposite effects, and you sleep.
Choline itself is cheap and not very strong. There are other supplements that enhance it greatly if taken together. But this is not the best step unless you know that you are for sure low in choline or Acetylcholine.
Issue in not knowing is:
Too High Acetylcholine = low serotonin (depression), anxiety, edgy;
Too Low Acetylcholine = high serotonin (happy, but too much leads to depression days or weeks later).
Finding middle ground is the key, and that is done with safer, lower doses that you can add to every day.
**Online, some will say Lymies are low in this too with Alzheimers like symptoms.. BUT, thats not always the case with every lymie. Some lymies are opposite, and have to much choline.**
And, magnesium is needed to ensure the Krebs Citric Acid cycle works properly (it connects all the acids). Supplemental magnesium glycinate, malate or citrate will work for that purpose.
