Working on the fatigue issue
This was originally posted on blogger here.
So on tuesday I talked to a doctor who trains with us at the gym. When we talked the whole thing about electrolytes, and I said I thought I was getting enough, he suggested I really up my intake of potassium, calcium, and even sodium. As he put it, 'putting salt on your food might be bad for most people, but with your volume of physical effort 5 - 6 days a week, it might be what you need to do.'
Now I haven't put any salt on my food yet. But I am drinking more electrolyte water. Eating more bananas and looking to buy some more suppliments. I think I feel better but it might be too early to tell.
The other thing he mentioned is that with my kidney issue I might just be anemic. He said that if upping the body salts doesn't work to try upping my iron intake.
He also said I might want to go to the doctor.
