thank you for this. are you also ok with the kelp? would you have an opinion as to what is causing the weight gain (20 pounds over the past year) and fatigue? I exercise 3 times a week (brisk walking or jogging for about an hour). I eat healthily as well, no junk food.
thank you Dr Love, one last thing, she has prescribed 100mg per day to be taken in the morning. Does this sound right? Also, If I start the aldactone only, when would I start using the estradiol?
is it ok to carry on with the kelp or must I stop that?
