To Test or Not to Test? My thoughts on ordering your own medical checks, and what I discovered about my cortisol, thyroid and weight loss difficulties! And why it’s easier to take a pill than take responsibility!

If you’ve been following for a while, you probably know I’ve always had issues with weight loss – PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) and imbalanced cortisol are the main factors for me.

I decided to get some tests by a UK company called Medichecks that offer blood tests (I paid for these, this is not a promotion!), just to help me discover exactly what all my levels were doing. 

My body has long been struggling with hypothyroid symptoms, and this finally gave me some answers!

It was really interesting to see the results, and to try and play detective with my own health. 

I also discuss that I was somewhat disappointed not to find something ‘fixable’ by a pill – cortisol reduction relies on me… and I go into why I find this responsibility heavier than a medical prescription!
