Orion, I think it was you on another thread who warned about lutein/zeaxanthin content of oat. Thanks for that. I have dropped them. Humous is another food I have now dropped because of chickpeas Vit A level.

lutein/zeaxanthin is definitely harder to avoid, barley, quinoa, in many foods...   noticed that tapioca is VA free.

I bought some organic russet potatoes the other day and ate them for the past two days. I usually eat conventional white potatoes. I noticed that the organic russets were dark yellow in color and very firm, but didn’t think anything of it. I have itchy bumps all over again, as well as dry eyes. Back to white potatoes!

Are you sure they were Russets? Yellow on the inside sound more like the yukon gold potato.

@janelle525 I think that they must have been mislabeled. I didn't sleep again because of the hives and itching. Hopefully it gets better today!

I couldn't find anywhere the exact vitamin a content of gold potatoes, but I did find this link which states, "Dark yellow potatoes contain beta-carotene, a nutrient that your body can use to manufacture vitamin A."

Another thing I've had which I believe to be caused by vitamin A: Chilblains (itchy inflamed skin on fingers and toes that causes infections, and for me, occurs in winter): https://patient.info/health/Chilblains

What kind of potato do you usually eat? like what's the name of it

I usually eat conventional (not organic) white potatoes. Occasionally I eat organic russet potatoes, but I believe this batch was mislabeled and actually organic gold potatoes. They were very yellow in color and I suffered a reaction, so I will stick to the white potatoes. I also wrote to Kettle Brand to confirm what potatoes they use in their organic potato chips, and they use only "white round chipping potatoes". I eat about 5-10 oz of potato chips every day, and they don't bother me. I actually feel that they make me better. As long as they are made with sunflower, safflower, or canola oil - I don't do well with cottonseed, corn, or peanut oil.

I just looked back at what I used to eat, when I was trying to consume lots of leafy greens, carrots, oils, and ground chili pepper that I read would help with Raynaud's disease, and I've calculated my daily intake of vitamin A to be around 46,000 IU!!! I ate like that for five years or so. Is it even possible to recover from such a chronic overdose? Does anyone have a similar history with positive results?

Two rounds of accutane(millions of IU), and 500K IU retinyl palmitate daily for few months, CLO, butter, eggs, leafy greens, carrot salad.... and I improve daily, so you can heal 🙂
