- Sodium phosphate sensitivity - chlortrimaton helps
When I eat meat or any product with Sodium Phosphate in it, either in one large dose or cumulatively I get all of these symptoms. It gets worse if I eat it in consecutive meals and/or days. Taking Chlortrimaton eases the symptoms. The Doctor says this is not an allergy but is a sensitivity to Sodium Phosphate. There are other meat tenderizers and preservatives that have one or more of the symptoms listed but I have not been able to identify them.

Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 year ago):
I have been taking warfrin for 6 months. My INR has stayed really low, so they have continued to raise the dosage. My INR then spiked at over 6. He dropped me down just a little and it dropped to BELOW 1! He is trying to figure out why my body will not "metabolize" (his words ... not mine) and I am getting frustrated. I have read all the information on how to manage the med... but it just isn't working. He said something about the prostate having something to do with this. Does that sound familiar?
