Now I know why I've been so down

Wednesday, July 21, 2010

I went to the doctor a couple of weeks ago and found out my thyroid is overworked and has a cyst on it. I also have a major Vitamin D efficiency. My doctor has me on kelp and high doses of Vitamin D. I go back the end of August for more blood test. This explains why I have been so exhausted.

Monday I started logging my food and exercise minutes. I've down better staying on plan because of it. Hopefully the scale will show it's appreciation by the end of the week.

    Dear Rose,
    Just a note of encouragement....it might take more than a
    week, but you will see results for your efforts.

    The other THINGS I would like to point out as "just like me"
    are this: I have thyroid problems also, I have a mass on mine,
    not classified a cyst (I had the nuclear test-it is clean for
    the bad word stuff) and also had a Vitamin D deficiency. My
    Rheumatologist (also have Arthritis) found my thyroid mass and
    I believe God had a hand in it (he is a Christian dr.) and he
    asked if I minded if he checked it. Yes, go ahead....so he sent
    me for the tests immediately. He also found the Vit. D thing
    and put me on 5,000 units a day.

    I cannot spend much time in the sun because my High blood pressure meds disagree with it, plus I am fair skinned and I burn easily and blister worse. Thankful I never was a sun worshiper...lol

    Just wanted to tell you to stay on top of this, and be sure to
    eat healthy.....
    I'll be cheering you on...
