Hello. I thought I would share this with you. My friend asked me recently to explain an underactive thyroid, T4 and T3 etc. (Which I am convinced I have, but TSH, doctors and endo, say NO). So, in my simple language, I explained it like this : What do you think?
If you have a car, and things start to go wrong with it, you take it to a garage. The pistons aren't working, then the gears, then the speedometer then the.........etc. etc. By this time you'll be lucky if the old banger can still get you from A to B without breaking down.
Unfortunately, on the next visit to the garage they tell you there is now irreversible damage been caused to your car, because it has been running, all this time, without the essentials - Oil and Water !!! and Nobody, at the garage, thought to check it !
T4 and T3
I was given a present, a box of teabags. I said, Thank You, kindly, and put them in the cupboard. On each visit my guest gave me another box, until eventually, the cupboard was full of boxes of teabags. Unfortunately, these teabags turned out to be useless to me, my guest had never enquired if I owned a kettle! Which would have allowed me to boil water and make and enjoy the benefits of having a cuppa. !!!
My friend wondered why doctors could not see things through, common sense eyes, and suggested that they all be prescribed a pair of "common sense" glasses to see their patients with. I recon that a lot of them are too vain to admit that they need glasses in the first place. So, their patients are going to continue to go thirsty until they are completely dehydrated ! Like me.
