I am mid-50s and hypothyroid, which is very common in women my age as the thyroid just starts to give out. I am on medication for this. Yet, I'm eating well, drinking my water, 10 pounds from goal weight and work out very regularly. I do not have diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, etc.
So I have to disagree with DIDS70 on only one count ... "no evidence of disease." Hypothyroid is a disease, yet there is NO PART OF IT that I can control. I do not believe this makes me unhealthy.
I totally believe that being healthy combines many things ... including physical, emotional, spiritual and for me, the key is balance.
