March update - allergy testing

Sorry I haven't written .... well not really ... I haven't written because I'm just feeling good and there's nothing to add.

Oh, I got allergy testing done. Remember how I ate at Bonefish Grill and had a crusted trout, so thought that since it was Bang Bang shrimp night that I got sick from shrimp contamination? Uh, surprise surprise. It wasn't the shrimp ...... it was the pecan crust on the trout! I'm allergic to pecans, peanuts (I knew), and sunflower seeds, but not shellfish.

I got a blood test done to confirm and don't have those results yet.

Still taking:

1 drop Lugol's iodine
Blood Builder, 1 tablet
5HTP at bedtime
Armour Thyroid
Vitamin D3

Sometimes take:

Vitamin C
other antioxidants (resveratrol, or something else)

Update: My blood test came back as mildly allergic to clams, oysters, squid, and scallops.
