Basically I wake up early morning with hunger and have to eat something before I start feeling dizzy and horrible. Sometimes I get very hungry even after eating a protein and fat heavy meal. But not so much since the Iodine supplementation.
However the waking up at night thing is a real pain, and stops me from getting good sleep. I take 1.5mg of melatonin to help me drift off, without it I have terrible sleep. 3mg I find is too much and makes me drowsy in he morning.
I have been doing magnesium injections for around 2 years, two injections a week 0.5ml. This was to correct a deficiency confirmed via magnesium red cell test.
I take chromium in a general multi vit an B3 is included in this also (for general blood Sugar support).
When I eat Sugar I get an abrupt surge of energy (even one medium apple) then followed by a slump. Not sure if thats the Sugar come down or because fruit is high in potassium therefore I need more sodium from salt. I did a salt push earlier with approx 1/8th tsp salt in approx 500ml water. I repeated this again 2 hours later till I peed a lot. I did actually feel a bit better. I think I will continue with the salt push. I also salt my food 'to taste'.
