Every profession is influenced by a half a dozen Professional Influencers (PIs). And just like that all the Lyme Illiterati will start diagnosing their patients with Mold. Immediately becoming Mold Illiterati.
Most Doctors practice in a manner that is a direct reflection of the expectations of their peer group and Professional Influencers. The Social Media PIs will quickly become Mold Illiterati, leading to more misdiagnosis.
Two recent patients diagnosed by nationally know PIs had Diabetes. But the PIs never bothered ordering a Complete Blood Test. Just labs for Mold and they fudged their analysis to support the Mold meme.

Signs and symptoms
The signs and symptoms for mold illness are very similar to chronic Lyme disease:
- Fatigue, weakness
- Focus/concentration issues, word recall, memory issues
- Confusion, disorientation, mood swings
- Muscle aches, cramps, joint pain, morning stiffness
- Skin sensitivity, light sensitivity
- Cough, shortness of breath, dizziness
- Excessive thirst, increased urination, static shocks
- Numbness and tingling, unusual pain, “ice pick’ pain
- Abdominal pain, diarrhea, appetite swings
- Headaches, tremors, metallic taste
- Temperature regulation problems, day/night sweats (more at night)
- Red eyes, tearing, sinus problems
There is NO Way these symptoms could be related to some Un-Cool condition such as Insulin Resistance.
- Brain fogginess and inability to focus. Sometimes the fatigue is physical, but often it is mental.
- People with pre-diabetes or insulin resistance also can have low or normal blood sugars, if their high circulating insulin levels are further challenged by a prolonged period of fasting or dietary restriction.
- High blood sugar. Mild, brief periods of low blood sugar are normal during the day, especially if meals are not eaten on a regular schedule. But prolonged hyperglycemia with some of the symptoms listed here, especially physical and mental fatigue, are not normal.
- Red Blood Cell aggregation has been consistently associated with insulin resistance.
- Feeling agitated, jittery, moody, nauseated, or having a headache is common in Insulin Resistance, without immediate relief once food is eaten.
- Intestinal bloating. Most intestinal gas is produced from dysbiosis.
- Insulin Resistance sufferers who eat carbohydrates suffer from gas, lots of it.
- Sleepiness. Many people with Insulin Resistance get sleepy immediately after eating a meal exceeding their Carbohydrate Tolerance.
- Fatigue after meals, craving sugar after meals, must have
- Cut back on carbs until you are no longer sleepy after meals and/or do not crave sugar after eating.
- Weight gain, fat storage, difficulty losing weight. The fat in IR is generally stored around the midsection in both males and females.
- Increased cholesterol and triglycerides.
- When triglycerides are equal to or greater than cholesterol suspect Diabetes.
- Increased blood pressure. It is a fact that most people with hypertension have too much insulin and are Insulin Resistant. It is often possible to show a direct relationship between the level of insulin and blood pressure: as insulin levels elevate, so does blood pressure.
- Depression. Because carbohydrates are a natural “downer,” depressing the brain, it is not uncommon to see many depressed persons who also have Insulin Resistance.
Most Doctors never bother checking for Insulin Resistance.
Symptoms of Red Blood Cell Aggregation
- Brain fogginess and inability to focus
- Nerve pain
- Cold hands and feet
- Numbness and tingling in arms and legs
- Muscle cramping
People with pre-diabetes or insulin resistance also can have low or normal blood sugars, if their high circulating insulin levels are further challenged by a prolonged period of fasting or dietary restriction, e.g. food sensitivities, AIP diet, GAPS, Keto, etc.
