    @neweimear I have not read this entire thread but just wanted to add my voice to please not give up hope yet. I was so inspired by you and your kids starting "Coins for a Cure" (I hope I am getting the title right) and you have a fighting spirit and there are still things to try when the timing is right. Maybe you will go to Kolibri for Rituximab or maybe you will find something else that improves your quality of life. But please do not give up hope... it is still out there. I was so close to giving up in 2015, when I was having daily anaphylaxis to all food and ended up in hospital, but am now so glad that I didn't.

    The last one I was using for the past few years on and off was Life Extension Foundation's Two-per-Day multi. However, I've had the same problem in the past (without realizing the cause at the time) with other brands. For the time being I'm not taking anything at all but am considering slowly reintroducing some vitamins and minerals one at a time and see if I can figure out which one(s) is/are the culprit. Presently, I'm now trying to get my vitamins and minerals from my food, not supplements.

    @TigerLilea I hear you. All multis are not the same and there are some unscrupulous manufacturers out there who will sell you the cheaper non-absorbable or inactive form of an ingredient, or just fairy dust things in there, or include lots of binders, colorants and excipients that may be intolerable...or oils that have gone rancid.
    There are some major gut wrenchers out there that can really make things worse.

    I've had very good luck with Andrew Lessman's Procaps Labs brand sold on HSN: Very high quality, no hard pills with binders and excipients, just fine ground powdered effective nutrients in gelatin capsules that are in easy to digest forms, very soothing to the gut.

    Also Thorne brand has been a good excipient free and effective find for me.

    I suspect the work of Lipkin, Nath, and Davis will converge nicely in next 3 years alongside Fluge / Mella's trials. It will not be a cure, but likely repurposed treatment options that will get 60-70% back to functionality

    I can't offer you advise, it's a personal decision. I can speak regarding my journey. I always had hope, found a great doctor, and have been taking repurposed meds for several years. My health has improved, and I am very happy.
