A few very basic APS questions... Just curious

I'm curious about what you do daily with APS and what makes you feel best? And some other stuff.... I tend to feel best when I can actually get the energy to exercise and cook right.... Sometimes it's so, so, so hard...

what is your treatment (warfarin, aspirin only, etc)?

How long have you been diagnosed?

Other AI diseases?

Type of exercise, if any?

Diet?

Supplements?

History of APS events?

Have you/ do you smoke?

Alcohol?

For me:

what is your treatment (warfarin, aspirin only, etc)?

-- currently on aspirin only (81 mg, sometimes double when I feel 'weird')

How long have you been diagnosed?

--6 months, only found because I had a pre- conception test

Other AI diseases?

--Hashimotos- hypothyroid. And currently being tested for others

Type of exercise, if any?

-- walking at high pace, pilates, weight training (at the very least 30 min. Per day++)

Diet?

--low inflammatory foods, low gluten, low sweets/ saturated fats, less white carbs, less processed, less dairy--- more whole natural organic foods, lots of veggies/ fruits, and fish and healthy fats

Supplements?

vitamin D, B-12, folic acid, dha multi- vit (also take synthroid)

History of APS events? Migraines, dizziness, foggy head, problems getting pregnant, severe fatigue, and other stange anomalies....

Have you/ do you smoke? Yes- quitting

Alcohol? A glass or two of wine a night, sometimes three. ; /

  • Hi there, I am sure a lot of us will be keen to give a rough idea of what we do... and do have a trawl through the polls which have been done over the months, as quite lot of these questions have been answered with visible charts attached. However I exercise and pace myself, diet good, drinking virtually never, makes me feel worse, natural foods, low gluten as well, processed foods avoided and also only apsrin, however I have four other diseases as well including hypothyroid M x
