Calcium appears to be a factor with the use of BENICAR and may be a factor for CFIDS caused Obesity.

Benicar

See http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/InfectionAndInflammation/surveys?id=923664 for people experience with weight gain using Benicar and following advise given at www.marshallprotocol.com.

  • Increased Calcium has been associated with weight loss -- The process may be reduced calcium --> weight gain. A compounding of factors below may push individuals over the cusp.
    • CFIDS patients have increase demands for Calcium  
    • The reduction of vitamin D (helps with Calcium absorption) is suggested at www.marshallprotocol.com  may result in further decrease of Calcium and thus weight gain.
    • B12 is also a factor for calcium absorption  , and CFIDS patients typically are low in B12.  www.marshallprotocol.com discourages the use of B12.
    • "It is concluded that minocycline inhibits K(Ca) channel-dependent Cl(-) secretion via a blockade of Ca(2+) influx" Minocycline is used at www.marshallprotocol.com.

Inhibitors of Calcium Absorption

  • "A diet high in sodium may also interfere with calcium absorption."
  • "A diet high in phytic acid, which is found in the bran of whole grains,
    is likely to interfere with calcium absorption."
  • "Phosphoric acid, as found in soft drinks, has also been argued to
    interfere with calcium absorption"
  • Inositol phosphates
  • Zinc
  • Oxalic acid

Factors to improve Calcium Absorption

  • Thyroid medications produce PTH which moves Calcium from bones to the blood
  • B12, Vitamin D (see above)
  • Magnesium
  • Amino acids: arginine-lysine-lactose
