    Fantastic article! My daughter was told that she had little gut enzymes and would have difficulty digesting oxalates. At the age of 23, her weight increased significantly and now at 30 She is morbidly obese. Also a zinc deficiency that can never be satisfied even with significant supplement levels…. so…. is this the missing puzzle piece? I thought it was the thyroid but this is making sense! Could this account for signicsnt weight gain especially around the midsection?

    I would like to know if organic carob powder is low enough in oxalates to safely consume?
    Thank you so much!

    I had the OAT’s test done recently and it showed no problem with oxalates. I don’t believe it was accurate. I have many symptoms (fibromyalgia) that say otherwise. Especially because I can tell the difference on a low oxalate diet. My question is I was given herbal tinctures for adrenal and thyroid support. my aches and pains have returned and I am thinking the herbs in the supplements are high oxalate. Can you give me any advice on what I can take instead? And are you aware that this test can be inaccurate? Thank you!
