- Just found out something, inositol, by ring5100
I had been taking Inositiol, 500mg. everyday for the past 3 weeks for helping with depressoion and anxiety, but also feeling worse overall, as into the 2nd-3rd week. Idid some more research on Inositol, side effects and there are plenty.!
It lowers testosterone, androgen, lowers blood pressure and significanly lowers blood glucose.
I beleive this is what my night from hell was and the past 3-5 days getting worse. I've had blood sugars from 130 (with anxiety attack than dropping 40 pt.s in just 2 hours. This has never happened to me. I've been having to eat in the middle of the night, waking up hot and with anxiety, and checking with my monitor, low again.
So anyone taking this already with low BS, stop. I found mounting tests and evidance of this.
I don't know howlong it will take for my insulin to get regulated again. What is said was, Inositil sensitizes insulin. Making it more abundant. It also axts like Niacin in a way, with burning skin, which I've had too.
Paulette ( having another 24 hours of horrible anxiety.)

I honestly don't mean to be rude in suggesting this, but I feel that researching side effects is better done before taking drugs/supplements.

I assume your numbers are in mg/dL. 130 is high.
If you're eating in some way that spikes your blood sugar high, you'll get an attendant insulin spike. And if you're sensitized to insulin, it seems likely your blood sugar will drop fast. Which would make you feel horrible.
Lots of refined carbs? Or a lot of food? Not much fat or protein? Low fiber? Even if you weren't insulin-sensitive, spiking your blood sugar is hard on your system. Part of the way your body compensates for the blood sugar plummeting is by making cortisol to raise blood sugar. Which stresses the adrenals. Which is why all Adrenal Fatigue literature advises us to smooth out our blood sugar curves.

If inositol sensitizes you to insulin, that means it makes you more sensitive to it. Meaning, your body reacts more to insulin. Someone who is more sensitive to insulin will have a bigger blood sugar drop than someone who isn't, if you give them each the same amount.
I did some research just now and it looks like inositol actually reduces the amount of circulating insulin. It does not make it more abundant. In any case, inositol does things that push your blood sugar down. Which is bad news for Adrenal Fatigue sufferers.

Good insight. Yes. I do eat a very well balanced diet, lots of veggies, protein and complex carbs, very very low on any simple carbs and no sugars.
THis has not happened for along time. Usually, if I wake up or can't sleep, I may get a small burst of feeling hot and a moment of anxity, Than I go get a snack ( in the middle of the night)
But, these past few nights, I had terrible shaking, sweating, nausia, all muscles tense, light headed-like delerious, lasting all night long, even after I had something to eat.
This indicates to me, the signals in my brain, don't want to shut off the signal to my adrenals that excelerate the adrenaline. This has been in a hyper state for the past 3 years now. I wonder if PS (Seripros ) would be of benefit for this. I need something to keep those signals from charging, even once the stress has been resolved, they keep firing. And, to don't know if this or Ashwagandha would be of more benefit. I will wait till I can see a new doctor and that will still be another 1-2 months ( need to save up about $300 at least, as naturopaths is't all out of pocket) I know I will need to have the 4 times a day, saliva test on the cortisol too.
Anxiety is the main issue that is preventing my adrenals from healing. I seem to have a low grade of it all the time and stress much more so.
Thanks for your reply. I'm only doing better, because I took a Valium yesterday. My body just would not relax.

I've been looking into this matter, I think one of the issues with using Inositol is that it is a cellular activity generator- aka, it speeds up some processes in the body, and depletes others.
After my first round of exposure to Inositol, (1 day, 600 mg), I was as sleepy as heck and happy as a clam. I'd also used Epsom salts (magnesium sulfide) to try and balance out a high blood sugar from using a b-complex vitamin.
It turns out from my experience that Magnesium sulfate (or any other form other than magnesium taurate and magnesium malate) causes a HUGE brain fog (Candida albicans and the like!!) flareup across my whole body. I've had inner thigh rash, huge difficulty thinking, tongue thrush, blood in the eye whites, ringing in the ears, a minor headache, and high blood sugars after that round of internal epsom salts!
Namely the nasty buggers like Magnesium SO MUCH--
--- And it's those nasty little buggers that CAUSE insulin resistance and high insulin requirements! They live inside body tissue, and create the low energy levels inside human cells- and it's low vit D3 blood status that is the tip of the iceberg in creating a leaky gut.
I'm a type 1 diabetic, dealing with a lot of mercury-induced issues.
I'm going to go heavy on marmite, brewer's yeast or nutritional yeast, whatever is the best I can find today out at Naturkost.
That stuff is namely loaded with B-vitamins and magnesium, and those are the two things that are going to ease up my problems without exacerbating them.
YOU HEAR THAT, FUTURE READERS? EAT THE BREWER'S YEAST, NOT PILLS!
Because freakin' hell, I know very well that pills throw folk into this sort of mess to begin with. You have to microdose with them and be your own freakin' pharmacist with a private stash of the right ingredients to do good that way.
Thiamin, riboflavin, choline and magnesium are all very high in nutritional yeasts. I wish I could grab ze marmite! Thiamine and Riboflavin with magnesium and choline with balance out Inositol issues.
Magnesium Taurate allows B-complex vitamins to be used -without- BG spikes.
The best source of magnesium are very dark green vegetables.
Magnesium's other vital co-factors are C-complex (ester C and whole lemon juice, FRESH), selenium, and E-complex (Vitamin E with mixed alpha-tocopherols).
Here's information concerning the effects of B-vitamins on the body, and what they are used for, from [ https://www.medixselect.com/page/vitaminbandglucose ]
B Vitamins and Blood Sugar
A healthy body needs vitamin B to produce blood cells, maintain healthy skin, regulate metabolism, and maintain the nervous system. Of course, your body doesn’t generate enough vitamin B on its own. The following is a list of the essential B vitamins everyone needs for wellness.
Vitamin B1 assists in converting carbohydrates into energy. It is essential for healthy heart, brain, and nerve function. Vitamin B1 can be found in enriched grain products, meat, beans, nuts, and whole grains.
Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin)
Vitamin B2 helps in the production of red blood cells and assists in in converting carbohydrates into energy. Vitamin B2 also helps the body maintain healthy skin and eyes. Vitamin B2 can be found in milk, meat, poultry, fish, lettuce, eggs, nuts, enriched grain products, and beans.
Vitamin B3 (Niacin)
Vitamin B3 is vital for the body to regulate the release of energy from foods. Skin, nerves, digestion are all impacted by Vitamin B3. It also helps to lower bad cholesterol. Vitamin B3 can be found in fish, nuts, poultry, meat, dairy products, peanut butter, and enriched grain products.
Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid)
Vitamin B5 helps the body produce the essential chemicals for regulating the metabolism. It can be found in eggs, liver, whole grains, beans, and milk.
Vitamin B6 (Pyroxidine)
Vitamin B6 is a life or death vitamin. It plays a pivotal role in regulating the chemical reaction of proteins and producing hemoglobin, which helps carry oxygen to red blood cells. Without vitamin B6, a person will die. Vitamin B6 is found in nuts, poultry, fish, whole grains, bananas, meat, and beans.
Vitamin B12 plays a key role in normal brain and nerve function. It is also necessary for the development and nurturing of red blood cells. Vitamin B12 can be found in poultry, eggs, meat, dairy products, fish, and shellfish. "
God bless, you folk, and see you on the flip side of life some time ;) (heaven, hopefully, but later-than-sooner!)
