BTD Forums  /  Testimonials  /  blood test results after 20 month on BTD
Posted by: yaeli, Tuesday, November 13, 2007, 3:32am
I am very happy to report a significant improvement in my blood test results of last week. For many years I had high TSH values (5, 7, even 11), and it has turned out that I have thyroid antibodies. I never took Eltroxin, the only medication available through Israeli health funds, because even a 1/4 of a pill would cause me horrible intestinal cramps. Last week both TSH and free T4 values came out within range (3.35 MIU/ml and 9.16 pmol/l respectively). It's a bit hard to believe. From time to time I peep at the results form, checking if I see right, if the good news are still there.
My triglycerides too are well within range now (66 mg/dl), which already occured about 10 months ago, for the first time after many years of high triglycerides values.
I am back on meat/poultry since October 5th, and about the same time I began to exercise in the gym in the mornings.
I am truly amazed, and much beyond that I am grateful. Thank you Dr. D.
Love you all,
Yael  :D

Or maybe my body has given up on me completely and decided there's no point in sending anymore TSH  >:( :'(

I have recently lost 2 kg though...  :-/ (think)

That's a real testament to the benefits of the BTD lifestyle.
Congratulations!  Wish I had known about it before I had to have my thyroid out in  1996.
