Re: Help with interpreting results......

Hi Denise

Based on past messages, your case history is in ECHisotry3


Please help us help you by saving the link, copying and pasting to your messages. We really need to see the whole up-to-date story.

Some ideas are

Diagnosis: His ACTH may need to be a tad lower, he may have iron over load or lyme issues. If temp was 40 degrees F or less, the temperature at the time of the blood draw may have had an impact.

Diet: He could have minerals tighter, additions of other supps lie ALCAR to help with insulin sensitivity.

Trim: It needs to be very tight to mitigate the affects of high insulin.

Exercise: Has a huge impact as you noted.
