Good work, Lila.  I am so happy for you (and totally jealous ).  Keep it up.

Also just got good results on calcium (which had been high) and vitamin D (which had been low). Corrected and I got instructions to reduce my weekly vitamin D supplement. Thyroid hormones are better, but T3 and T4 still not in the optimal range (but improved over last time). TSH is the lowest it has ever been at 1.90 and I have fewer hypo symptoms. My endo thinks the improved cholesterol results are because thyroid numbers are so much better.


Still don't know about liver enzymes but will find that out on Friday. My endo did not say anything (and she could certainly see them in the medical record system) so I imagine they are OK.



Now if I can get off the BP meds, I'll be happy. I don't mind staying on the thyroid medications because I feel so much better on them.

Lila,


Isn't this upward spiral wonderful?!!!!
It can take from months to several years for every system to correct itself so you really are making great progress.   :)
Great going!

Delighted with my PCP visit this morning! He always "grades" my lab results (he knows I'm a teacher) and today's report card was A+. AND he said "cholesterol is great and you're not on the zocor anymore." He also said that with my NMR HDL so high at 98, it is nearly impossible for total cholesterol to be under 200 so "that's not a problem."  He liked the triglyceride number (75), but I've never had a real problem with that, relative to the "normal" range.


My next visit (6 months instead of 3!) will be to get LDL-P down to around 600-700 and triglycerides down around 60. Gotta pay more attention to carb counts before things go in my mouth (to avoid an unpleasant surprise yesterday I got with the "all-fruit" spread I talked about in the Food Elements forum).
