Is there a supplement out there that you can recommend? I just visited the doctor and my blood level is good according to him. How can everything be okay when I just had a part of my body removed. According to Cardiologist, I'm not hypo or hyper. I just turned 52 and going thru one of the phases of menopause. My energy level is terrible; I feel sometimes depressed for no apparent reason; my hair is brittle and dry; my finger nails are brittle and break very easily; my skin is not the same (elastiscity). I'm having hot flashes and sleep with a fan on; yes I do. Sometimes I get a chill, but it's very short lived and nothing compared to the hot flashes throughout the day and night. I refuse to do hormones. Cancer and Breast Cancer runs in my family.
