I have been seeing a doctor for two years with very little help. I keep going to her because shes good about doing any blood work I request and finds a way for my insurance to cover it without any money out of pocket.
I spoke to my chiropractor about it and he agreed that it is odd that I had or have roaming tendonitis, especially with the fact that its been two years, my diet is relatively clean, and I exercise, stretch, foam roll, etc. on a regular basis.
He referred me to a Rheumatologist and I saw him. I go back in a couple of weeks to go over my blood work. The rheumatologist did say that it raised a red flag with him considering I have had multiple endocrine issues. I asked him and he said he would refer me to an endocrinologist if it didnt seem to be an autoimmune issue.
Symptoms or problems:
Hypothyroid - currently taking Armour 45mg upon awakening. 30mg around lunch time. 15mg before bed.
Low DHEA - currently taking 50mg DHEA
Low Testosterone - currently taking HCG and more than tripled my test and free scores.
Elevated LDL - I was predominately using cyclo ketogenic diet. However for past month or so have gone back to Zone diet.
Belly Fat - Cant seem to lean up like I use to and a large chunk of fat is sitting on belly and obliques.
Fatigued and tired all the time.
Tendonitis that wont clear up.
Low Vitamin D - around 38 but have been taking 60K iu twice a week so hopefully this number will be much more elevated next go around of blood work.
Insomnia - although since taking DHEA and HCG this has improved to some degree.
Low back pain - also improved since Vit D, DHEA, and HCG. I also switched to front squat only and only doing roman deadlifts and cut out regular deadlifts.
I look more like the before picture in my avatar. I havent been lean in two years. Grant it I havent been able to train like I wanted and went through some mild depression due to either my hormone profile or just feeling like crap.
Been training consistenly for 4 months and although strength continues to improve I am no where what I use to be and cosmetically I am embarassed of myself.
Read where liver can impact the thyroid, allergies, tendonitis, etc. So I thought I would give a cleanse a go.
