I ran a few errands this morning and rushed home super hungry for LUNCH!I used all this stuff plus cashews (cannot stop eating them – are they addictive to anyone else?).
I wanted something sweet for dessert, but don’t have anything good in the house. I thought this would be genius, but I just keep eating PB&J to help quiet my sweet tooth. Unfortunately, my sweet tooth is very smart and realized this is a trick. It’s still not quiet.
In September I had a blood test. The results came out positive that I have blood. Whew, I was worried.
The blood test also read that I was low on my T3 hormone. I didn’t know what that meant and spoke with my doctor about it. Basically, your thyroid gland makes T3 and T4 and releases it through out your body to control your metabolism.This sight gives a good explanation – How the thyroid works
So, my doc prescribed something to me but I wanted a second opinion. Then, I recently had the chance to try 2nd MD! On this sight you can set up a phone call or video chat with a specialist in your area of concern for a fee. The appointments are charged based on time (ex. $200 for 20 minutes). It is pricey, but similar to what you would spend getting a second opinion without insurance most places.
I scanned my test results and saved them to my file so when I had the call with the doctor yesterday he knew exactly what my T3 numbers were. Overall the experience was very helpful and I’m really glad I got the opinion of someone who specializes in thyroid issues in addition to my own doctor (who I trust very much).
I still haven’t decided what (if any) action I’m going to take on this medical issue – taking medication, natural methods or surgery. Yeah, even surgery – just not the kind you think! I think I heard breast enlargement surgery is a good cure for all that ails ya.
In partnership with Clever Girls, I was given a free appt on 2nd.MD in exchange for this post. I have not been compensated by my thyroid for lowballing me T3. All opinions written by me on RER are my own.
