Yeah, but what IS it?

The doctor's office called and reports that I DO NOT have diabetes or thyroid disease. Yea!

On the other hand, I still rather suddenly have thinning hair, fatigue, dry eyes and a fuzzy memory. So while I'm glad I don't suffer from the more consequential conditions, I do still want to know what's going on.

My doctor herself is going to call me later in the week to report on my full labs -- including my pesky cholesterol -- and I hope she'll have some suggestions for me. If not, I think I'll visit my dermatologist. He can address the itchy scalp and thinning hair.


  1. So glad you won't have to deal with meds for those two things!! Still a worry and a puzzle. Hope your doctor has some answers for you!

  2. Congrats on the news so far! I hope your doctor can come up with a solution other than "it's the aging process."

  3. Well, that is something. Keep looking, though. If you know you don't feel right, then you don't. Take care of yourself.
