Talked briefly with my chiropractor today, will be going in for in-depth test results on Monday morning. According to the hormone panel I had done, I AM deficient in iodine and I AM estrogen dominant. (I'm also perimenopausal and no longer ovulating.) We'll discuss what it all means and the treatment options on Monday. But I did already get the liquid iodine and started using it as soon as I got done with the collection of saliva and urine for the detailed panel.
So there may very well be a physiological reason for my inability to lose weight. And maybe it will just start falling off once I start treatment? Hey, a girl can dream, can't she? ;-)
And, you know, I have to wonder how many women out there have a "totally normal" thyroid blood panel, but have these other things going on that the blood tests don't target?? I'm going to wait a few weeks before scheduling the ultrasound/fine needle biopsy of the nodule in my thyroid.
