In this Q&A episode, I answer the listener's questions. I
had some send through their question on Speakpipe in audio form and
here are some of the written questions sent in:
- I started Hormone therapy almost a year ago and has been life
changing for me. But I want to talk to someone (like you) that
knows their stuff. If what I am doing is the best for me. Is that
something yall can do?
- hello! I’ve been listening to your podcast for a while now and
enjoy it very much. I’m a 39 year old woman who has gained about 8
pounds in the last 6 months with no changes to lifestyle or food.
In fact I have been cutting out all extra sugars and processed
foods. IDK what else to do!
- What are your favorite skincare products that are free of
chemicals? I have hypothyroidism and trying to eliminate as many
toxins in my diet and skincare!
- I’ve listened to your podcasts, but I have a question. I’m 50
years old, definitely in perimenopause. I did a round of pellets in
October, no need to say the least, won’t be doing that again. In
February I started on the low estrogen patch and 400mg ora
progesterone at night. I feel a bit better, but I’m bleeding almost
every day, annoying.. what should I do? What do I need from my
provider? Thank you in advance!
- Hello, all! Okay, I have been on my journey for almost a year.
I have had successes, but... I recently added thyroid meds
(Liothyronine) a month ago and began injecting Semaglutide two
weeks ago. My current concern is that I have become "tired"/low
energy. In the last few weeks. Thoughts or advice?
- Hi Karen, I’m wondering what could cause periods that occur
every other week. This just started happening to me in February
along with awful water retention (sometimes upwards of 10 lbs) I do
have hypothyroidism and possibly Hashimotos(not officially
diagnosed but I have a suspicion) It was mentioned to me that I can
not be on estrogen replacement therapy due to my age (33) so I’m
assuming it low. Am I entering into perimenopause?? What could
cause this to happen at such a young and what can I do? I should
mention I am on 100mcg of Cytomel as well as 100 mg of progesterone
and 5mg of testosterone or one click.. is there anything else I
should look at? How do I manage this water retention? It’s honestly
beginning to run my life
- What do you know about the thyroid hormone T2? Is there a blood
test available to check levels of T2? If so, what is the optimum
range? Should someone with hypothyroidism take T2 or a supplement
that raises T2 levels? Which ones?
Have a question for our next Q&A leave me an audio message
Try the Thyroid Fixxr T2 supplement.
Losing fat and getting your energy back never goes fast enough, and
optimizing your thyroid doesn’t either. The power of T2 to improve
your body’s ability to burn fat without the jittery, hyper side
effects is simply amazing… and that’s what you get
with Thyroid Fixxr™.
