I just want to thank the five of you who took the time to reply to me. It made my day. Sorry I haven’t got back & this is brief. I’m just taking 5 mins out from my work time and come an evening after I’ve gone for a walk after work, had a shower & dinner, and watched Masterchef (how lovely are the final three?!), I’m nodding off on my sofa, barely having the energy to wipe my make up off, take out my lenses etc and crawl into bed…
Ok, I’m all set to go in armed with info / extracts from Dr Toft etc next time. From my experience, the NHS don’t like it if you know what you’re talking about, but I’ll keep trying all of the drs in my new surgery until I find one who is willing & keen to read the info / evidence / case studies that I present to them. I may need to book a double appt!! My next blood tests are Thurs 26th, so reckon I’ll see a doc on 01 September – I’ll keep you posted. I have already booked my bloodtest for lunchtime, as I definitely think later in the day does give an unmasked result and I won’t take my levothyroxine on that am.
I’m also set this weekend to get my new food processor / blender out and make lots of soups for next week to take to work. I’ve really got to try, even if my metabolism doesn’t want to play ball yet.
I especially need to kerb the carbs as I recently had a hair mineral analysis (with my winnings from Spain winning the world cup!), which showed that my body isn’t a fan of wheat or yeast (dairy was ok), so that should be even more incentive for me to get on with it.
Anyway, best sign off for now.
Look forward to finding some time to read up properly on all of your overviews / stories…
