Lysine question, a bit confused about some things

Recommended Posts


I have a question someone can help me with.. I have taken a lysine supplement in the morning for years and it has decreased my outbreaks a bit. But I have been researching and now I have confused myself with info regarding arginine lysine. So basically some clarification on this would be very helpful as it has been causing unnecessary stress!

Basically, I have read that chocolate, nuts, even whole grain are a no go? I am worried to even eat a little bit of this stuff now even though I don't remember getting an outbreak before due to eating them.. but anyways, so we can NOT eat this at all?

Or since I take a supplement can I eat some of these things and really how much is too much?

Is it best to take lysine in the morning? that's the way I have done it, I'll take it with my multivitamin and vitamin c.. but maybe there is a more effective way?

I truly love whole wheat bread and the thought of completely giving that up makes me sad so what is your opinion on all of this?

I just want to know how much to truly follow the lysine diet I want to be able to enjoy things and even a little chocolate here and there without worrying about the lysine/arginine ratio so much..but I can't find answers really anywhere that will help me.. so help here from you guys who have experienced this would be so helpful! Thank you!!

      I'm 99% confident that these are caused by Herpes. This is what they looked like when I first caught the virus, and in the same spots as well, although now much milder and smaller in size.  I have tested positive via swab when I first got the virus, and two times via blood test. However, since several people here are doubting my symptoms are caused by HSV, I might do another swab just to be sure. It's still good to rule anything else out beforehand.

      And btw  @ayekayelle I’m sorry you’re considering divorce. I hope you are able to work it out with him. But if you’re not happy I think it’s worth taking the risk of leaving! You deserve to be happy!

      Ikr! I’ll have guys be like “oh yeah you’re right, you’re not gross or less valuable but it is a deal breaker” I don’t really blame them (because I am still coming to terms with it being “not a big deal”)

      It's very possible he or you were mostly a carrier. Neither one of you have to have sores all you have to do is shed.
