Hi everyone…When I post on here, I am usually trying to help others. This time, I am in need of some emotional support.
Had my 3 month bloodwork on Monday and went for my results today. Good news is although still not great, A1C down to 7.7 after being 8.4 (yay me!), that's what healthy "clean" eating does :-), on the down side, Cholesterol up to 229 from 196, and the big "T" (trigylcerides) up from 300 to 700! How did this happen eating healthy? I'm so discouraged! Then after being dx'd w/ Hypothyroidism 3 months ago, TSH was at 7 which is "borderline treatable since they like for it to be at 10 before treating), but since I had symptoms, they started me on a low dose of Levothyroxine. Today, it had skyrocketed to 39! So needless to say, they increased my Levothyroxine.
WIth all the hard work making changes to my life by eating healthy, watching portions, and just living better, I feel discouraged. But I know things have to get better. Sorry for all the negativity. Hope all of you are doing well. Thanks for listening.
