What To Ask My Doctor
I am on my first official day of BPD (doing IF). I have been researching and trying things for about a week, but not perfect enough to call it official. I weigh just over 300 lbs and am hoping to lose weight through BPD, focusing highly on toxin reduction.
I see a lot of people (esp women) having little success with weight loss because of hormonal issues, thyroid problems, and other medical conditions. I have not seen a doctor for quite some time, and I want to go in prepared to ask all the right questions and discuss all the right tests.
So far in my notes, I've got that I should ask my doctor about:
-Hormonal Imbalances - Potentially getting tested for low thyroid and testosterone, high estrogen
-Severe micronutrient deficiencies
-Extreme toxin accumulation
Can you recommend anything else that could help me identify issues that could affect my weight loss success with BPD? Thanks so much. -Laura
