AN ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE! Blog for Friday May 10 2019
For the past three months I have been extremely fatigued and sleeping 12-14 hours a day.
Something wasn’t and isn’t right.
My iron or ferritin level in my blood had climbed to 491 when my doctor checked my Thyroid activity.
Two years prior it was above the safe range (50-275) at 325 (whoops)
I had a liver scan today by a doctor (Dr Thomas) in St.Thomas Ontario who studied under DR. Paul Adams of U of H in London who was asked to go on Oprah a few years ago and turned Oprah down!
The results….after months of waiting…no scarring, no cirrhosis and NO CANCER of the Liver!
It will be MONTHS before my energy resumes normal levels, but my head and heart are in a MUCH BETTER PLACE today!
There is a gene test that identifies clearly the presence of hemochromatosis called HFE C282Y that EVERYONE with ANY history of high iron levels in the family should be checked for.
AVOID CANCER of Pancreas, Liver, Heart disease among many other diseases caused by high levels of iron in the blood.
For me, I have taken a PRO-ACTIVE approach to my own health and before I saw Dr Thomas a) Learned from my baby brother and his daughter about Hemochromatosis and had the GENE TEST ordered than gave blood to blood services who WANTED MY BLOOD WITH EXTRA IRON on March 27 to then get my iron or ferritin level down to 275 Or NORMAL levels! (Down from 491 a few months ago when looking at the THROID FUNCTION WHICH WAS NORMAL!)
I love my Doctors BUT they no longer have the last say on my health and wellness. No sir. I DO.
DR Thomas is all over my situation like white on rice from close monitoring of blood ferritin or iron levels to ultra sounds of my stomach and regular visits to see him to monitor my case closely in order that I LIVE LONG AND FULLFILL MY DESTINY!
