I hope everyone is having a great weekend so far.
Well I went for my regular 6 monthly check-up with the endocrinologist on Friday. A little nervous as always before I receive my blood test results. But before they were revealed to me the endocrinologist checks my blood pressure ( low range – quite normal for me) and I also got on the scales to find out that I have lost 5 kilos (last check-up I weighed 52.5kg, now down to 47.5kg) . I was quite surprised as it was not intentional. I still eat and exercise regular, but the only changes I made over the past few months was giving up chocolate and eating less to nil gluten free / wheat free/ sugar free / dairy free products.
The endocrinologist was a little concerned with my weight so I hope it stays steady as I can’t really afford to be losing weight.
Then she asked about my general health and well-being. Well my Anxiety hasn’t been good lately so i’m trying Rescue Remedy drops and lollies. They seem to be helping quite a bit. I would certainly recommend to everyone.
Now for the blood test results. ~ Thyroid – good, Growth Hormone – good , Cortisol – at the highest end (range 138-690) my levels are: 681 nmol/L, Prolactin – up again (range 0-500) my levels are: 1226 miU/L
Although the Prolactin levels have doubled, the specialist said there is nothing to worry about yet as the last few times my prolactin levels have gone up ~ down ~ up. Also my menstrual cycle is regular so my reproductive hormones are functioning normally.
The endocrinologist wants to wait for the next blood test results and another MRI in 3 months ( a bit closer to check-ups due to the increase of my levels. ) then go from there whether to discuss options for medication or continue without. Fingers crossed for no HRT or the pill, as the side-effects are not pleasant, and a family member got cancer from several years on the pill.
Well that’s it from me for now. I hope for some positive results in a few months. My MRI is scheduled for June and my next endocrinologist appointment is scheduled for August. I’ll keep you updated on any other changes.
I hope you all are going well on your journey. Also hope I am helping people further by telling my story. Any feedback or comments regarding my content is always welcome. Feel free to visit my Facebook and Twitter fan pages.
