Thanks so much Dr. D,
You had told me to start her on baking soda in the beginning but I just didn’t do it. She takes so many pills every day and she was doing so well on the Diamox that I wimped out – but she will just have to add in a few more if she wants the Diamox to work. And she does! Being headache free was a very pleasant thing and I know she will do what she needs to do to get there again!
I am actually just taking a break from making some capsules right now, so she can start taking them this morning. We won’t be waiting for the blood work results! I grabbed some empty capsules at our local health food store so I could make her some right away but will eventually order a filler kit so it is easier to make them.
Oh, and they are looking at her potassium levels as well, so we will keep an eye on both CO2 and potassium.
Thanks so much for answering so quickly – I know how busy you are. You always give the best advice, even if I didn’t follow all of it originally!
Have a wonderful day!
