After all these years of trying to loose weight and not being able too. I may have finally found the answer. I started researching my symptoms, especially the one that causes women to grow facial hair and loose their hair and constant weight gain inspite of healthy eating and working out and the trail lead me to a hormonal inbalence. So I asked my primary doctor to check my adrenal and pituitary gland to see if their is an issues. Well he refused and seem very bothered at my efforts to get myself well and continued on with the best life I can possibly have. So I turned to naturopathic medicine and ask the Dr. to check both glands and He diagnosed me with Conn's disease. The exact same thing I concluded after my research. By the way I don't tell them up front what I suspect I have. I want to know what their diagnosis is. From this point forward I will never trust any MD's any more. It seems to me they used scare tactics to keep people coming back so they can make more money. At one point I told him I went to free lecture given by a person who was both an Md and Naturopathic dr. His response was maybe you should make her your primary doctor and maybe she can help you. So he thought I wouldn't because of my income looks like he was wrong and stupid at the same time. this Dr. choses to use both forms of medicine to treat her patient. whatever's best for the patient.
Medical doctor's chose to do what ever helps the wallet to grow. So they will sit by an watch their patiet slowly die and get sicker while making money and laughing all the way to the bank. So I just ignore their advice and continu to get better and better.
