Another Round of Bloodwork

I'm not sure what I want the results to be!

I met with a doctor that I found on the hypothyroidism website.  A very nice and patient doctor who told me that based on my medical history, symptoms, and family history, I may havePCOS or hypothyroidism.  Here's what I was told (in my own words, ok?)  While my TSH score is in the low-normal range, my bloodwork did not show my T3, which could be outside the normal range and cause my symptoms.   As for the PCOS, insulin resistance is often related to that condition, and carbohydrates would aggravate it.  Of course I eat a lot of carbs on a vegetarian or vegan diet (raw or not).  The doctor hates Atkins but says a low carb diet might be worth a try just to get the weight off.

I've been trying to get information on eating a raw diet when suffering from PCOS and as usual, nothing is conclusive.  Raw foodists who don't have PCOS seem- for the most part- adamant about raw food being fine for PCOS sufferers.  As is my norm, of course, I'm more interested in what raw foodists who actually have PCOS are doing.   Now, I have no idea if I have hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, PCOS or whatever, but I do like to educate myself on an issue as well as collect firsthand stories from people going through a similar challenge. The power of theinternet is most evident for me when people with similar experiences use it to share information and help each other out- especially when the medical establishment and gurus don't have the knowledge.

I get my results next Friday. I'm not sure what I want the results to be.  I want to eat 100% raw, so I don't want the raw diet to be the cause of my problems.  Yet I don't want to have to take thyroid pills orglucophage or that other PCOS medication I read about. I want to be all natural, darn it!
