Thanks for this info, Lolo. My sister had a similar situation. Her doctor noticed that her calcium was dropping way way low, so they checked her thyroid and COULDNT FIND IT! It had dropped, literally dropped down so low that it was near her spine(!) and they had to operate and pull it back up. *shiver*
Since then she has developed a degenerative bone condition.
If the doctor had been more on the ball, he would have been checking her calcium level years before this.
I had mine checked not long ago and, thank the Lord, I'm fine. But I also try to keep in good shape and I take all kinds of minerals, anti-oxidants and protein drinks and I cut a lot of "goodies" out of my life.
The result has been that even in this last year, I've watched my body go from bad to good. Stopping coffee stopped my headaches. Cutting fats has cut my fat and I'm feeling a whole lot better.
