As anecdotal support for "constantly tasting everything", I offer my high school scientific calculator. After one year of 2 hrs per day of chemistry class, its crevices around the display had a permanent collection of precipitate.

I suspect that even without intentionally tasting things, nearly everything in a lab is ingested as an aerosol. It would be unsurprising if months of such exposure led someone to develop a hunch about a molecule.

If you're looking for an experimental protocol, the ADHD MTA trial's protocol looks pretty good.

It is described at https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/10591283/ and explains in detail how the doctors decided when to try increasing the dosage. It supports evand's assertion that improvement should be noticeable quickly.

How much ambient light is there? Is it all from sunlight?

  1. Find a company that makes or sells high quality LEDs
  2. Buy their largest lighting fixture.
  3. Install fixture.

Sample companies:

  • Waveform
  • Yuji LED

If you're feeling down, here's a recent project that seems to have worked out.

San Diego Mid-Coast Trolley Extension:

I got a little weirded out at the OAuth prompt because it said "johnny" wanted to get my account. I know who Neuronpedia is. I didn't know who "johnny" was until I did some more reading and figured out that you're Johnny.

Please consider registering a dedicated account for the organization ("Neuropedia", perhaps) and doing the OAuth through the organization's account so that the prompt doesn't surprise users as much.

In a later comment, the original poster said that the Total Protein seemed fine. Unfortunately, https://www.ajkd.org/article/S0272-6386(99)70278-7/fulltext suggests that the person looking at the labs would have to know that they ought to look closely at the albumin level, specifically. It wouldn't be the first time that "Reality has a surprising amount of detail" where overlooking 1 thing is enough to get into trouble.

It would be unsurprising if the albumin level turned out to be low, if the A/G ratio was slightly off despite the normal-looking total protein values, etc.

As SirTruffleberry said, this situation would be a place where having long-term trends could help.

It is also possible that his lab values fell just barely within the normal ranges.

FYI, the Waveform article promotes the use of the Kruithof curve but that relationship between lumens and preference could not be replicated by a study from 1990 (https://doi.org/10.1177%2F096032719002200102).

Chapter 5 of a 2005 thesis ("Human lighting demands : healthy lighting in an office environment") from TU/e has specific recommendations for brightness, contrast, etc. Its DOI is 10.6100/IR594257 (https://doi.org/10.6100/IR594257).
