Conflicting Lysine-Arginine ratios in food

Recommended Posts

Bethany

So in trying to figure out what foods I'm eating that might be high in arginine and increasing my outbreaks, after scouring the internet for hourd theres definitely ALOT of conflicting information! As an example one source will say grapefruit is high in Arginine and another will say its high in Lysine. I understand any given food can have both in them and its the ratio we're looking for but some lists don't have the ratio or some lists only a very limited amounts of food. Is there any books or online sources of more foods listing the real Lysine-Arginine ratio?

I find I get out breaks with mainly chocolate, coffee, wheat products like bread, pasta, junk food. Peanut butter and nuts is also a trigger. I found if I stick to a diet of mainly meats, vegetables, fruit, potatoes for carbs I tend not to get breakouts, but once I go back to the other foods I tend to get an out break. Dunno if that might help you

I have found this website to be helpful- http://nutritiondata.self.com/   There is a search at the top where you type in the food and search.

Most charts I have run across have conflicting information or articles that tell you to eat one thing that another does not.  I have found that it is a lot of trial and error and eating things in moderation.  Hope this helps out some!

      Your symptoms and photos match exactly what I've been dealing with on and off since October 2018 after I had a a really bad flu that brought about tingling on my lips. It felt like a cold sore was going to develop, but a bunch of tiny white bumps showed up that doctors have yet to fully explain what it is. I also have a constant feeling of a dry, chapped upper lip. A few weeks later the white tongue showed up. I'm also currently dealing with a change in taste in my mouth. I eventually tested positive fro HSV1 months later, but I don't know where on my body it is. I also have discoloration on my the tip of my penis. One dentist told me I had bacteria covering my tongue, and another dentist said nothing looked suspicious. I also get the cut on my tongue.  Prepare yourself for a journey of doctors telling you that you look normal when, in fact, you do not.

      @CheekyMunkey there is absolutely no way you, me or anyone has any chance of diagnosing what issues inside the mouth might be. There are simply too many issues that create similar looking outcomes. All I can say is that issues inside the mouth are way, way less likely to be related to herpes compared to if you were having issues on the lips.

      Hi mate.  Thank you for responding. I do feel better but I think the oral might be the issue. I was looking at my tongue and it looks white. Well whiter than normal. Also about 3 days ago I had a really sharp pain in my tongue which lasted like seconds. Later in the day when I saw it it had like a line cut into it. Is it a lesion? I have no pain in my tongue at all, no fluid filled sores but I noticed that Its shape isn't right. Like a bits missing on the tip of the right hand side. I've added two pics. It looks whiter in the pics then it actually is but I noticed red dots all down near the tip. Could that be something? Herpes? Also, where the tongue goes out of shape there is nothing on that side. I did burn my mouth on some pizza on the day I felt that sharp pain so not sure if that's got something to do with it.  https://ibb.co/zhphnMD https://ibb.co/G0pPRLh Thanks in advance.

      Personally, I'm still wondering how likely is it China will cure HSV before the States does ?...
