Well the diet is for alot of things, if your levels are to high you could experience alot of things like headaches, tremors (or shakes), lower IQ, musty odor, very irratable, agressive, lots of mood swings, skin rashes and if untreated for a long period of time it can result in being mentally retarded. Those are some of the many problems that can come with having to high levels.
