Thyroid Disorders board


Asscen,

Howdy, I had a terrible bout with Shingles about 4 years back.....I had a severe case........I recommend Olive Leaf extract capsules..or liquid........3 caps a day until outbreak is gone and then one cap daily for a while.......natural anitviral.........It is cheap and great stuff. Glad to hear from you

Mkgbrook.......I had PCOD or PCOS.......At my age now they call it Insulin resistance or Metabolic syndrome.......low blood sugar and high insulin......I am being treated finally after many many years of this with Janumet and Magnesium. Plus my thyroid meds help.....and a low glycemic diet......
Any time you want to discuss it let me know.

I have a cool Endo who listened to me real close when he was evaluating my nodules/ goiter and falling labs.......he did a 2 hour PP glucose and Insulin on me......My blood sugars were good but 1st insulin was normal but 2 hour sky high...I have had several insulins drawn and they were always normal but he did 3 insulin tests...on pre drink one a 1 hour and 1 at 2 hour.......my 2 hour was about 5 times higher than normal.......so I am now on Janumet twice a day and I was soooo resistant to taking it. But I have to admit I feel 100% better.....losing weight...30 pounds now total.....not napping during day, not craving carbs and sweets as much.....can eat more normal and not gain. Also my triglycerides and cholesterol are normal for the first time in 20 years...I think it is the Janumet and the proper thyroid meds...I am on thyrolar 2 and Cytomel now. I have probably had this for years......So I am getting straightened around.

We all have so many worries and stress.........all of this gets to us. I am so grateful for this board........Oleander

Grateful to all my friends and advisors on here.....:angel:
