I have been looking through the thiamine posts and have a question I was hoping someone here could answer. I don’t want to bother Dr C with a question.
My question regards the restart procedure when the dose of thiamine is aggravating PD symptoms. I had assumed the procedure of eliminating the intake of thiamine for a few days and then restarting at a lower dose was to allow the level of thiamine to return to its native level since thiamine is excreted so rapidly in order to determine the proper therapeutic dose. Thereby avoiding residual excess thiamine interfering with dosage determination. But I was wondering if this, in fact, was the reason or is there some other or additional reason. TIA
