Good morning everyone.
Can I ask if anyone has had the above test with interpretation from a practitioner? I've now had two such tests and the naturopath, whom I met yesterday, was very pleased with the improvements.
He thinks that within the next few months my nutritional deficiencies and mitrochondrial dysfunction (the cause of my CFS as far as he is concerned) will have been completely reversed and I will be able to withdraw all medication.
However, having looked more closely at the two test results and compared them, it seems to me that while some show an improvement, others definitely don't. This leads me to wonder if the naturopath actually knows what he is talking about.
I've long had qualms since he said that a BP of 148/98 wasn't high and a TSH of 3.12 was low (!).
I'm considering changing practitioners, but do not know who to turn to (any recommendations?). I would like someone who would explain the test results more fully, interpret them properly and who would follow up on what is obviously a major problem (i.e. the blocking of translocator sites/function), which is getting worse, not better as I was told yesterday.
Before I explore other practitioners, I'll give the naturopath a chance to explain the difference between my understanding and his, but I doubt I will get a satisfactory response.
To be fair to him, he has actually done more for me in six months than the NHS in over 30 years as the ATP test finally identified the nutritional deficiences and mitochondrial dysfunction causing many of my problems.
This particular naturopath is known within Thyroid UK, which is why I'm being circumspect and not mentioning names, but will do so in private messages.
NB I have never had a diagnosis of hypothyroidism but have had ME of varying severity since 1989.
With thanks, Ann
