Well...I can't even remember all the things my doc told me were "wrong" with me!! I wish I had written it all down. Here are the things I can remember:
Hypothyroidism: My levels are on the low end of the "normal" range but I am told that someone can be very ill with a thyroid disorder and still be within the "normal" range and this is why they go untreated. Do you have a thyroid condition? Were your ranges normal?
High Cholesterol (LDL): This is verrrryyyy odd. I am a 22 year old normal weight female who does NOT eat fast food and watches her diet. So, I was told that this must be hereditary. My dad does have high cholesterol but he is a slightly overweight 58 year old man, so that is to be expected. My mom is very thin and healthy and I do not know if she has high cholesterol or not. Luckily,I do have a lot of good ( HDL)cholesterol also to get rid of the bad stuff.
I am deficient in magnesium.
I am high in iron. This is a HUGE mystery because not long ago I was anemic and I have stopped taking iron, eat no red meat, ect. I am thinking it might be mistake!
I am lacking in a certain growth hormone.
I am lacking testosterone.
So... I am being given:
Magnesium Potassium Aspartate
I was told to stop taking my birth control pills because they were causing some hormone problem. I don't know what. Do they mess up your hormones??
And all the other stuff I was taking before.
This is A LOT of pills to remember to take!!
