I am not one to make new year resolutions. Usually my new year resolution consists of simple non life changing things like wear nail polish on my toes more often. Two weeks ago I went for my normal 6 month check up at the endocrinologist, and the PA added regular blood work (cholesterol and triglycerides) to my usual T4 and T3. As usual the numbers came back too high. In the past these numbers have been attributed to thyroid being out of whack and I had been encouraged to exercise more. Years ago I was faithful in walking 3 miles a day 3 or more times a week. Life changes and other people have taken priority over me.
