Man, just got back results from another blood test and boy are some of my hormone levels crud. My thyroid is all off even with being on Armour. I have low leptin levels, low B12, low iron and low DHEA. Based on some feedback I am going to have my female hormones rechecked but at the “optical” time and also going to do a cortisol saliva test and iodine.
I knew there was something still not right and I am pretty sure that they have been off for years now. I am eating right but the weight seems to be creeping back up. I will NOT get on the scale since it is irrelevant right now plus it is part of my mental healing. I can’t say that it is not my fault because it is. I tanked them due to years of chronic exercise and trying to starve myself thin (does not work by the way)
Once I get the other tests done (I ordered them, way cheaper than going through a doctor’s office but just as reliable) I will get into see a doctor about all of this. It is all been like a giant puzzle that I am learning how all the pieces fit and if some are off how the others are all effected. I am the only one responsible for my health.
I am still plugging away at the leptin reset and started doing cold thermogenisis (that’s been interesting too). I am trying to not let any gain get to me since I KNOW that my hormones are out and until I get them better, nothing I do will make a difference. No eating plan, no amount of exercise, not even another round of HCG.
So, if someone is out there that feels like they are doing everything right but nothing is working, have your hormones checked. I went in with a list of tests that I wanted and I got them since I am the consumer, I was going to be paying for it and I am in charge of my health.
Oh and hopefully this weekend I will post pictures of my new boys (new kittens and how I got them) and some of my garden on sterioids.
Have a great day everyone.
