    Thanks @JasonUT. Did you get any benefit? How long did it take you to get normal test results?

    My doctor tried to order a thiamine test for me before I embarked on my experiment but this was refused so I'm flying blind and have only my symptoms to go by. Maybe I should try telling them I've been overdosing and therefore urgently need a test now;) This strategy did work for a magnesium test once:rolleyes:

    Has anybody here been able to judge just from symptoms when/if they can reduce their dose? How?

    Yes, improved energy and cognition. Improvements seems to be continuing, but at a much much slower pace. I complete a SpectraCell Micronutrient panel every 3 months. With that said, it took one 3 month test cycle to show improved B1 levels with Lipothiamine 400 mg. Additionally, I had several deficiencies which needed to be worked concurrently. There is still work to be done based on my latest results highlighted in post #89.

    I wish I new an answer to this. I struggle with this everyday.
    sb4 and Ravn like this.
