I LOVE LOVE LOVE my new doctor! She had a medical student with her and when I showed her my lab results from my old doc, said "Wow, these are interesting, come here and look at this!" Then explained that my body is NOT happy with me and my brain is crying out for fuel. Said I need to force myself to eat, protein when possible, add salt to everything (as per cardiologist and naturopath's advice, too!) and set a timer if I need reminding to eat every 2-3 hours. Told me I looked like a wilted flower. She also said that yoga might be good for me with gentle stretching, but to take it extra slow with the change in elevation because of my low bp. I told her that I also go to the chiropractor and love him and she said she's a big fan of what works and that she also goes to a chiropractor, so I loved hearing that. Plus, the fact that her immediate answer was NOT to put me on some kind of medication is a BIG BIG point in her favor.
When my old doctor was giving me the results of my lab work, she started to talk about redoing the blood work to check again, she said NOTHING about what I was eating or what kind of exercise I was getting or my habits. That's what drives me crazy about the typical MD. New doctor is also checking my thyroid and my gluten tolerance. Uh oh. :-) I had a fresh baked muffin at HEB before she tells me to go gluten free.
I told my husband - how many people are going to hate me - doctor's orders to FORCE myself to eat, setting a timer to remind myself if necessary. :-P
