..Doc recommends Spark People

Monday, January 28, 2013

well, there was good news and bad news. The "good" in a sense was that for the first time in my life I now need to supplement with thyroid. That may explain some of the exhaustion and the difficulty with weight issues. Most labs were fine but my bad cholesterol had gone up significantly. The plan is, again, diet and exercise and have it rechecked in 4 months. My doc is wonderful and she is NOT about jumping into any drug regime unless necessary. My FBS was up a bit as well. All these things should improve with what goes in my mouth. Another good set of reasons to use that 'Most Valuable Tool'

The other good thing was that my blood pressure was FINE, even with the white coats scaring me!

Doc also said she is always recommending Spark People after learning about it from me! YAY!

Off to do better...............

    My doc told me to eat vegetarian one day a week and that helped with my cholesterol. Sounds like you have a great doctor - they can be hard to find.
