Early Spring: Awareness, desire.
Posts: 13
Sooo...A while back, when my dysautonomia/POTS/migraine problems started, my neurologist looked at my CoQ10 blood levels and they were low (.6 for that lab). He recommended 1200mg of CoQ10 and 1g L-Carnitine per day. Said it could be indicative of mitochondrial disorder.

Now that my neuro symptoms have improved after going gluten-free, I wonder if I still need all the Co-Q10. (aka should I write it off as undiagnosed celiac nutritional deficiency?)

Do Hunters typically burn through CoQ10 because of their active metabolism? Could this be a persistent characteristic of my type? Is high supplementation of CoQ10 and LCarnitine advised for ONeg Hunters?

I wouldn't write off any deficiency as a celiac.  Maybe get retested at some point after more healing. CoQ-10 does seem great for all Os.  You may not need as much after a time.  You should be absorbing it better than before.

Sounds like you had a better neurologist than I did.  She did many tests, some painful, and wanted to do a lumbar puncture...without doing a single blood test.  All that was wrong with me was a vitamin D deficiency.  My sister had a similar ordeal with a B12 deficiency.

Yeah, celiac is loads o' fun.

Thanks Amazone ... I use similar methods now, and wish I'd been into that then.  My NeuroModulation Therapist has since saved me many doctor visits and tests.

glutenismyenemy, I LOVE your moniker!     That said, I think your doctor sounds AWESOME, that he tested your blood for CoQ10 level--I didn't even know they could test for that!  Wow, a good, thorough, naturally-oriented doctor is PRICELESS!  I DETEST my current primary care doc and her practice and am about to switch to one recommended by a co-worker who raves about him and I am tantalized by the possibility of actually finding a good primary care doctor.  I have NEVER had one.  Never.  I think the odds have GOT to be in my favor at this point *lol*.  But I digress:  back to you and CoQ10:  it could not possibly hurt to supplement with this vital substance.  I am not big on supplementation, yet CoQ10 is the ONE thing I take regularly (other than DPN's Proberry Capsules at the first tiny hint of anyone around me having a cold or me feeling even a hair under the weather).  It is so important for so many aspects of our health.

I remember the first time I took CoQ10.  I started taking it for gum health.  But as soon as I started taking it, I noticed SO many wondrous, unexpected things:  my mood/outlook improved, my sleep cycle improved, I had more energy, I was like whaaaaaat?  What IS this stuff?  I realized that it was something I really, really needed.  You know how certain beneficials/superfoods are like that?  As soon as you eat them, you feel deeply nourished and just revitalized and you realize:  "This food is for me!"  Well, that's how it was with me and CoQ10.  The stuff is nothing short of magical.

It can take  a while for nutrients levels to restore to normal after a period of reduced absorption- and you still don't know if your  gut has healed enough to allow for "normal" absorption yet, although you do know there has already been significant healing. I'd stick with the supplements for at least a few more months. When the next blood test shows your levels are high enough (or perhaps even too high) then you might experiment with lowering your dose or stopping it altogether- with blood tests to monitor the results.

CoQ10 is very safe to take long term; I'm not familiar with any dangerous side effects from that particular supplement.
