share. learn. thrive!
heres my story. since the last couple of months i have been slowly gaining weight. i have not changed anything in my diet and i continue excersising at the same pace like i did before. i am extremely getting frustrated at this and people been noticing and commenting on the change. i have gotten my thyroid checked and it seems to be normal 1.75. don't know what to do? or what it can be.. i need sum answers
yes thats the thing i have a lot of symptoms of it:
* Weight gain
* achy muscles
* Shortness of breath
* Dry, brittle hair and skin
* Memory problems
* Cold intolerance
* Puffiness in face
* Hair loss
if you can find out the books for me that would be awesome..were you miss diagnosed with it??
Those are the textbook symptoms of hypothyroidism. I agree with Holly...and do it ASAP. I would try to find a naturopath also. There are some great natural ways to treat this especially with nutritional therapies and supplementation. Try to also find the endocrinologist.
Some great advice on this thread... most definitely get tested for Celiac. My daughter has Celiac, and we've learned so much about it. 1 in 133 people (that's 10%) HAVE Celiac Disease, and only 10% of those people are ever tested/diagnosed. Could lead to some serious stuff down the road.
Regarding AF, please be sure your ND does saliva cortisol testing for you. This should test your Cortisol at various points during the day and night (I believe 4 or 5 times a day), as your Cortisol levels naturally rise and fall. Any deviation off this can affect our bodies and lead next to Thyroid issues.
Sleep. Something I still constantly battle. I am hoping that completely changing to a raw diet (or as much as possible without stress) will help here. Sorry I can't comment more on helping in this department (if it is an issue)...
Keep us posted and being aware there is an issue is step one! You will recover...
