hey everyone! so, i have been vegetarian for almost 20 years, i am 34, female, seemingly healthy, but after after 2 kiddos, i found out that i have congenital adrenal hyperplasia. i have had this all my life, it is inherited, and it explains some of the stuff that i have gone through over the years. i have had cystic acne as a teen, little breast development, hormone issues, hypothyroidism (even though i am thin), hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia. so, yeh, i thought that i was healthy. it all adds up. however, thanks to a vegetarian diet, my endocrinologist was happy to see that i haven't fallen into the same trap as others with CAH. so, my intuition lead me back to a raw lifestyle, but not the one i followed 8years ago . :( thank goodness for some education on 811.
i have been 811 for 3 months and decided to have my doc do some blood work. here it is...
BUN 3mg/dl *flagged as low, but is thanks to the diet
creatinine 0.53 mg/dl
sodium 139 mEq/l
potassium 4.0 mEq/l
chloride 104 mEq/l
CO2 32 mEq/l
calcium 9.1 mg/dl
protein 6.6 g/dl
eGFR 140 ml/min *this one i need to do some research on it is high
cholesterl 91 mg/dl
triglycerides 74 mg/dl
LDL 32 mg/dl
risk factor 2.1 mg/dl
TSH 1.07 ulU/ml *no more hypothyroidism*
vit D 54ng/ml
folic acid 21.3ng/ml
iron 67 ug/dl
plus, i had hemoglobin, WBC, RBC and more, all of which were normal.
so, here i am a raw mama raising two raw little girls 4 and 2 (they have a blended diet with some cooked food when they request it), but they love good food.
now i have proof that it is all GOOD!
much fruity love to you all!
Were you taking any supplements?
i had to mention my blood tests to my family tonight. i don't see them all the time, maybe every 3 mths and they always ask a ton of questions about what we ate for the day or what the kids have been eating. so, tonight i brought up my results just to calm any concerns. they are generally curious just for the sake that i am very different than them. they usually aren't rude about it, but they have their moments. :)
i take jarrows methylcobalamin b12 lozenge. i have used it for years.
oh, any thoughts on the eGFR being high?
