lab tests are in

Dr appt today showed my hormones are all normal! Imagine that.... (sarcasm here). She even said to not continue the bioidentical hormone therapy for several months.

She's doing a Free T3 blood test, among a couple others. I am curious with the T3 because it shows how much T3 my body is actually absorbing. The normal tests show how much my body is making. SO if this test is 'off' then I will be correct with my idea that the whole Wilson's temperature syndrome is my problem that needs T3 therapy. (That would be awesome, wouldn't it? That I may have been right all along? hmmmm..... )

She also has no idea why my weight is not stabilizing and thinks I should stop eating dairy because my blood iGA tests from awhile ago showed I was allergic to caseine (milk protein). I asked if raw milk protein was the same as processed milk protein because the processing changes the structure. And she was stumped. Since I was eating both processed milk (ice cream) and raw for the test, it is inconclusive to know what the truth really is.

She also wants me to start some very expensive cleanse and supplements for gastric upset/ulcers even though I don't have an ulcer. The dairy fasting will be hard, but my cravings haven't been so much lately anyway. I drink the raw milk smoothies to get food and probiotics in me since drinking food feels better in my gut than solid food. The other things will have to wait because my money is being spent carefully on more important things. This could all be a regression healing since I remember having similar gut-things happen in College. I lost weight then because I couldn't eat from a stupidly-traumatic event. This will be interesting to see what happens. Maybe I'll stick with the homeopathy and find if my constitutional remedy has changed.

On another note, my 9 yo is having increased seizure activity and it's been overwhelming this past week. My 4 yo gets his cast off his leg tomorrow (hopefully) and soon summer weather will stay and keep me warm. Strawberry picking time is upon us and I'm hoping to get to the fields in the middle of all this rain! My 6 yo son is showing a special talent with Fencing and his instructor wants to take him to his college class and show off! LOL! My other 2 are glowing in creativity and are starting a homeschooling magazine like 'Highlight's for Kids'.

Life is always interesting, eh?
