NEW STUDY! Parasym Plus™ for Multiple Sclerosis › Forums › PrettyIll.com Discussion › EDS/MS/Chiari › question RE: c02 level at 21 and on diamox
I have EDS, POTS and possible mcad and I have a standing order to check my c02 levels for six months. My results came back and my c02 is 21… I know it should be at 22.
I feel like diamox is not working as well as when I started it a year and a half ago.
My question is, I know some people on this forum make their own pills to keep themselves alkaline… But I dont have the energy to do so.
Can anyone recommend something for me to take to stay alkaline and also how much???
Thank you 🙂
Hi Kelly, On Prettyill.com’s store, you’ll find some sodium bicarbonate tablets (although you need to dissolve them in water). Alternatively, you could dissolve baking soda powder in water. You can also take the CITRATE form of magnesium, calcium or potassium and put lemon juice in your water to help. 🙂
Hello Dr D!
Thank you for answering. I saw the tablets on your website but they are no longer available at this time, so I also looked into the pills that are right next to the tablets on page 6 of the store.
I know every person is different, but what is the baseline of how much I should be taking? For instance, if I buy the bottle of 1000 pills, how many pills should I take a day? …. And should I spread the dosing throughout the day?
Also, if I decided just to use baking soda, how much of that would I use???
Since they are in different forms, I am not sure what the equivalent is, if that makes sense.
I do apologize if my post does not make much sense… I am plaques with fatigue 🙁
So, if you, or anyone, can enlighten me on how much to take for either the sodium bicarbonate pills or just plain baking soda, I would be very appreciative.
I am worried I will take too much…
Thank you again!!!
