What's up people?? Happy Hump Day! And whoa...today is a big day. I am heading to the doctor AGAIN this afternoon. So as I mentioned in my LAST POST, I had to cancel my trip to Phoenix this week (sadness) because I'd had horrible cramping all last week in NYC. So I ended up going to the doctor (OB/GYN here in IL) on Monday night. I thought I was getting an ultrasound that night but nope they were too busy and booked with all these pregnant women. Annoying. So I have to go back today -- to get the ultrasound done and then meet with the doctor who will- based on that and my bloodwork, which I just reviewed today-- will decide what is the best treatment. Here is my babble-on-a-thon about it and other things below AND CHECK IT OUT MY VIDEO IS UNDER 10 MINUTES!!!
So- I mentioned my bloodwork. I just looked at it and of course I am not a doctor or a specialist but I can see some interpretations and so far I see that I have:
- Glucose issues
- Very high estrogen
- Low insulin
- A couple other things elevated LH was one of them
CLEARLY I have no idea how to interpret this but what I know is this, I have been on a hormonal rollercoaster since 2010 and I didn't ever really research anything or give attention to it. I just listened to some very misinformed regular MDs that put me on a TON of antibiotics and then the last one put me on a steroid (!) to solve the accompanying skin condition that I got - -and it did, but I had NO idea that spironolactone is a steroid that jacks your hormones....It was Whitney that really helped me see and understand how serious of a situation I was dealing with.
Thus-- I am EXCITED to have this data and excited to start moving in a new direction and addressing all of this instead of "just dealing with it"-- no way. Whitney told me she has had dozens of clients in my age group with the same circumstances-- high stress work life, travel etc. and hormonal imbalance- burning the candle at both ends and getting nowhere. She said when they got straightened out with a natural hormonal plan by Dr. Riske it's like they felt in every way 20 years younger. And she said Kelly if you think you cannot lose that fat around your core-- this is why, and when you are more balanced, you will have a new EVERYTHING, you will sleep better, feel better and achieve more in every way.
SWEET MOTHER OF GOD-- BRING IT!
