I went to the doctor today. He said I probably have the worst case of hypothyroidism he has ever seen. Nice. I asked what can he do about it? He went over my blood test results (which I have to go back to the lab because our local lab office didn't do the correct tests order) and my diet (recorded before Christmas). I am going to be taking some vitamin D supplements, a natural thyroid replacement called Westhroid and some other supplement to help my immune system. I am to avoid sugar, artificial sweeteners and soda. He said my diet is ok, until dinner. I need to just eat a salad and some lean protein for dinner and not eat 3 hours before bed. I am so hopeful that this new regime helps me. I talked with Sarah and she found a informative website online:
It had some really great info. on it, and I really can't wait to see who is right in the medical world as far as my thyroid is concerned. Read up and get educated. It has taken me 7 plus years to finally do a bit of research. I am posting a picture of how puffy my face has gotten in the last year. Don't judge, people! According to the naturopath I have a good diet! I blame everything on my thyriod.
Here I am last year. I think there is quite a change. I have noticed a big difference in my appearance in the last 3 years.
