Good News!

Got back from my doctor visit and I don’t have Hashimoto’s!!! Doctor was thinking that it was a possibility because my TSH readings kept jumping from high to low, a tall-tale sign. However, I may not have Hashimoto’s but it seems I do have Hypothyroidism. Even on the low dose of medication my TSH was reading a little high. So he is upping my dose. Ug, I hate getting use to a medication. More good news though, if it adjust my thyroid then perhaps a lot of my typical problems will get resolved. Yay!

I’m really relieved that I do not have Hashimoto’s though. I was going to be really mad if I ended up with another Auto Immune disease. The things I read about that one did not sound fun. Doctor thinks that it was going up an down now because of all the stress I was having with my stomach problems and that painful surgery. orz

Oh, and new layout again. This one I like a lot and will probably keep for a long time.

I’m really working harder on my FODMAP diet. It is frustrating at times, there are a lot of things that seem like they would be good for me but then I read the labels and shake my head. Not to mention a few fruits that I’m not allowed to have they they tend to use for a lot of things such as…


Damn that evil fruit! I wouldn’t care if I didn’t have to eat another apple (don’t really care for them) but when I look at the ingredients on a lot of things, they add apple stuff in their product! I was getting so annoyed. I even looked at this one sweet that was suppose to be strawberry flavor and it was practically all apple stuff! I don’t even think it has strawberry stuff in it! Weird!

Not that I can really have any of that anyway, but I am sad about no peaches. I love peach season. Sniff

I’m going to try hard to follow this and then slowly bring back things to see how I react to them. I even added an app to my phone so that when I go grocery shopping I can look stuff up to see if it is on my good list or bad list. It will take a while to remember.

Some of the hardest things for me that I can have are…
Apple, Peach, Avocado, Cherries, Garlic, Artichokes, Okra, Cabbage, Onion, Wheat, Rye

I’m not suppose to have Gluten or anything with Lactose but since I never notice much reaction to eating those things I will trying them again when I have been on the diet for a while.

I have even gone through my kitchen and thrown away any temptations of food that was not on my list (and gave away what anyone would want). My 21-Day book and diet still works great for my FODMAP plan. I just have to substitute a few things here and there but since that book was suppose to help people with gut issues and IBS then it is pretty much the same as some of my FODMAP books. Yay, because there is one dish I LOVE and I really need to share it with you guys soon.

I want to feel better! I don’t want to end up with more problems – especially chronic headaches! Damn that was an awful few weeks! Wish me luck!

    I’m glad you don’t have Hashimoto’s! I hope managing your TSH will solve your other problems too!

    I’ve noticed that apple is used as an ingredient for many things that you don’t expect to see apple in, which is kind of weird. I have issues with certain fruits like apples, peaches, and cherries when they’re raw. I seem to be fine with them otherwise though!

    I hope things get better soon!

      Me too! I was starting to get really depressed when my doctor thought I had a high chance of it.
      It is weird! There are so many things I pick up that just have apple or apple concentrate!
      Thanks ♥

  2. I hope you feel better. Hyperthyroidism is very closely related to the food you consume too & can be reversed without medicine (in some cases) so long as you really take care of yourself, get some exercise, & eat better. I hope you can stick to your FODMAP! I personally love gluten, so this diet will be very challenging, but your health is incredibly important so take good care of yourself. Don’t give into temptation & try your very best to plan out your meals ahead of time so you’re not tempted by…uhhh whatever it is that might be around you at work!

      I don’t really know if I need to take the medication right now. I know my doctor is concerned but since I am changing my diet and exercise I would like to try that first. I’m tired of taking more meds.
      It is a challenge but I love rice so that makes a good substitute for me. Thankies ♥

  3. I actually know something about Hashimoto’s disease, because I watched a documentary about rare diseases or auto immune ones. It would suck to have another one. I may not have a physical ailment, but I deal with many different mental illnesses, which sucks so baddd. Let me tell you. I, too, have to watch what I eat and exercise daily. Gotta take good care of myself, like you. I think that’s a number one thing, anyways.

      Yes, it certainly would. Asthma is bad enough, and whatever is going on with my stomach. I bet they do. I can’t even imagine. Yes, eating healthy and light exercise can help as long as your not having a bad flare up of whatever your illness may be.
