Anna, way to get in that walk this morning. Good for you:)

I took a 30 min walk just now. I makes it nice that my son comes home for lunch so I can go for a walk. I plan on going again after work with my hubby. We like to walk and talk about our day. We have the same work schedule.

Have a great day:)

Good information. I too have been low on Vit D and took about 6000 IU my dr had me increase it cuz I'm still just on the border range after 2 yrs. I'm now on 10,000 and started to feel better after about 2 mos on the higher strength.....no more joint pain!

emoticon emoticon Mzz thank you once again. You have answered all my questions. I do get
sunshine every day as the weather is pretty good. I switched to a magnesium
with D3 but I think I have to up the dosage.
Also love my leafy greens, so will also look into the folic acid after reading
the link you shared. You are a sweetheart. Thank you so much.

Re: Folic acid and immunity

Eating for health rather than simply for taste, is always a good bet.

Leafy greens are particularly good source of folic acid... the words folic and foliage come from the same root word.

I found an article about folic acid and immunity here:
www.nutraingredients.com/Research/Fo
la
te-supplements-could-improve-immune-R>system-in-the-elderly


Folic acid (metafolin, 800mcgs... I cut one pill in quarters and take a quarter per day) and a multi B vitamin are things I take everyday in addition to eating my leafy greens.

I have never thought of it as protection specifically from the flu.
Just as something good I do for my body.

PS

Anna

I just saw what you said lower down in the these posts about sweating.
That can be from your weight gain, in that the ration of your body to your skin surface isn't as beneficial for heat dispersion as it is when you are thinner.

BUT now that I saw you are lower than ideal in vitamin D, that could be the result of extra sweating as well. Particularly if you are sweating from your head!

So pick up those D pills today, or get a bit of sun, or both!

Hi Anna!

Your results look good to me.

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!

That said, you do need some vitamin D, since this is your most recent test.

Your choice is to either take vitamin D3 in a pill, or expose your skin to the sun for 20 minutes or so every day.

Frankly a vitamin D3 pill works for me, they're inexpensive and I don't have to be concerned about UV skin damage.

As for feeling hungry all the time, why not include some leanprotein in all your meals?
Protein helps to keep one satisfied longer.

Another tip, is that sometimes we confuse hungry with thirsty. So you may want to fix yourself a nice cup of herbal tea, or simply sip some water. You can add some mint and/or lemon slices to add flavor to the water. Having a beverage with your meals also helps you feel more full.

Another tip is to include more fiber.
The quickest way to do this is to have a salad with all your meals, or a cooked green veggie.
If you are doing a salad, be careful of the amount of oil you put on it bc of calories.
I love balsamic vinegar and olive oil. Strawberries , mangoes or tangerine slices add vitamins and a nice tang to salads.

Hope you can use some of these tips!
Congratulations on your otherwise good health!

I got my results today. I am not sure if they are the same numbers in the US,
but mine are as follows:
TSH 1.6mU/L Range (0.40 - 4.00)
Free Thyroxine FT4 14 pmol/L " (10 - 20)
FREE T3 4.5 pmol/L " (2.8- 6.8)

Have no idea about all this. Told the specialist I was hungry all the time and he
said just keep doing a little exercise and eat healthy food. I have no diabetes
and no cholesterol problem, so that is a big relief.
Had a Vitamin D test as well and It was a
25-Hydroxy Vitamin D3 60 nmol/L Range (50-300)
The notes underneath states "This is a low Vitamin D result. We occasionally see evidence
of functional vitamin deficiency (low normal ionised calcium, raised PTH ??) and possibly
accelerated bone loss with levels in this range.

Yet this specialist told me my Vitamin D is good and left it at that. What am I to believe?

I guess I haven't heard anything about folic acid and the flu.

Tomorrow I go in for my blood work for my thyroid. Hoping for good news!

Had my flu shot. Apparently it was sent back because they had to put two
new strain in it. The whole lot was held up in quarantine an has only just
become available here in Oz. Meanwhile it is bringing many people down
and lasts for weeks. I spoke to my bus driver this morning and he told me
he never gets a flu shot but instead takes folic acid. Anyone hear about this?
I am going for new blood tests tomorrow as I am seeing the thyroid specialist
on Friday. Let's see what he tells me about my weight gain and sweating...

Hope everyone is over their multiple sadnesses and are hale and healthy once more!

Toni... the first year I taught, I was as sick as a dog, just from exposure to my students. The next year I was "inoculated" and rarely missed a day which was great when it came time to take maternity leave as I used all those days I didn't take as paid leave!

Good afternoon....

I had a tracheotomy last week and started synthroid. I look forward to support on my journey from others who are also on this hormone path.......so I am glad to join this group.

I do live in the northeast and read some of the posts....it is cold but do love the snow yesterday that just covered everything in white diamonds....today it will melt in the brilliant sun.

I do look forward to the warmer weather to start waling again.....take good care of yourselves...Paula

I lived inCanada for 15 years and when I went back 3 years ago for a holiday,
it was nice to be in the cold but now that I am not a youngster anymore, I really
felt the cold. there's no way I could live there now even though my heart will
always be there.

Toni, it is Autumn (Fall) and we still are having to use fans. Today it dropped to 28
so it was much nicer when I went for my walk. Mzz, I remember in '67 catching a bus
from Abilene through to Dallas and connected to Washington DC and the snow was
unbelievable. It was December and I was going to my uncle's for Christmas.
That year, a bridge collapsed in West Virginia and there was no way to let my family
know I was OK. It is etched in my memory forever, just like it happened yesterday.

Glad you are feeling better Toni.
I am moving to Greece at the end of July, but our island does not really have much of
a winter and our village is by the sea. I'll still be able to do my walks.

Toni,
I could never do it!
The Northeast was too cold for me.
After graduating college, I moved to Florida and got a waitressing job while I waited for something to open up in my career.
Just couldn't do the cold anymore.

I'm in Texas now, winters aren't too bad, while I miss the Sea, I enjoy the change in seasons.
Nothing prettier than the sight of bare tree limbs silhouetted against the winter sky!

Good to know you are healing, feeling a bit better.
Surgery of any sort, is difficult so props to you keeping your spirits up!

31 degrees and how come you are so hot at that degrees. I wouldn't even go outside for a walk with that temp. Sometimes I feel like melting when I eat the wrong food but then I'm really sensitive to LOTS of foods. Or sometimes when I go from hypo to hyper I feel warmer but that's cuz I have Hashimoto's.

Have a wonderful day Anna:)

Hi MzzChief, you are totally right about that....bending it kinda hard for me to do right now. Today I'm getting out of the house and spending the day with my mom, she's 89.

Sun is finally shinning and life is good!!! emoticon

hi Toni!

ok, you had me worried. Glad you are not watching Wee ones. Activity ( like walking) is good. Lifting, bending etc. is too soon.

This is a time to dial things down. Not prove how tough or brave you are. .. you don't get surgery every day of the week, this is YOU time to heal.

I'm speaking from personal experience here... what I didn't do but should have done!

I don't have to lift the ones I have and I only took on just my three older kiddos for 2 days this week. Next week I have help coming in so I'm good to go. The dr said I can't push, pull or lift more than 15 pounds for the next 4 weeks. Can't wait till I can get back to exercising again....it's driving me crazy!!! Lol

Toni...

Oy... daycare sounds like lifting small children and bending over a lot to me... is that okay this early on? Or can you get someone else to do that for you?


Hi Anna!
I'm still caught up with the mouth, throat and ear nonsense. Apparently I don't get sick like normal people, I have to have something weird.

White tongue doesn't sound good.
In addition to drinking more water, you might want to use a tongue scraper.
I found I didn't have a film on my tongue, once I gave up milk in my tea.
Now I put in chia seed and blueberries, so my tongue is often black from the berries, like a Chow Dogs!

Off to yoga!

Thanks, feeling much better and but back to doing daycare for me today. I'm keeping my number down for the rest of the week so I don't over do it.

Have a great day all:)

hi Toni!

Wasn't able to get on the computer this weekend, but I did think of you on your surgery day... actually I mentioned you to one of my friends who had hers out years ago.

SO many people I know have gall bladder problems, thank goodness it's something we can live without!

Glad it's over and you are on the road to recovery, please follow your surgeon's directions about activity, what you can and can't do. Very important for proper healing.

Thanks! My surgery went well but I'm still in lots of pain. I guess I have to be patient and rest till I get to feeling better. It's always nice to see my grandkids cheering me on to get better, I have 5 of them....they are so sweet!!!

Kitten, I am back on Levothyroxine. Went on Synthroid for a while because I thought being on this was my problem. Did not change much so went back on Medicare covered pres.

Mizz could shed some light on your question. I read about doing this with Armour and didn't try it because I didn't want a mouth full of yuck ... but I can tell a difference. I don't chew it all the way up ... but bite/crush it with my back molars and then drink 8 oz of water.

What meds are you on???

This was talked about a long time ago ... but I started biting into my Armour before swallowing it with a full glass of water. It has made a difference!!!

I waiting a long time before trying this because I was afraid it was gonna taste really nasty.

You guys are sooooooo smart. I learn something allllll the time.

Gluten Free Pizza substitute!

My 10 year old loves it just as much if not more than regular pizza.

I took an Eggplant and sliced it up. Put the slices through a Egg wash then dunked in Gluten Free Italian Bread crumbs OR Crushed Cornflakes with Italian seasoning)

Lay flat on cookie sheet spray with PAM and bake at 425 for about 15-20 min until they are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.

Spread some sauce on it.

Sprinkle cheese.

Toppings of your choice.

Put back in the oven until cheese gets bubbly.

ENJOY!


Mzzcheif - I haven't had real pizza since the thyroid swelling. It used to happen to me a lot but not so much since I went GF. Used to have to take 800 dose of Motrin to deal with in now I just take an herb packet and the swelling reduces quickly.

I'm getting smarter in my old age! ;-)

Good luck Toni.
Mzz, Thanks for telling me the difference about gluten intolerant and celiac.
i will not be having the genetic test. I monitor what I can eat and have
a pretty good idea of what upsets me. Know thyself.
