I've been going to the dentist to have some cavities filled and after having these cavities filled, my swollen parotid glands and lymph nodes seem to go down...but nothing sure yet...there might've been an issue with with teeth affecting them... I read about swollen salivary glands being related to a localized gum infection or a problem with a tooth...and the first doctor (the ENT doctor) who

Yesterday I went to the family doctor with these recent results and the conclusions from the endocrinologist. I told her I won't take any artificial calcium pills and no Euthyrox. She said it's my choice not to take Euthyrox and that no one can force me to take it. She said to take at least calcium extracted from plants, if I don't want to take lactic calcium, but I said I'd rather not take c

Guys, I really need your opinion and advice on this issue. Today I went to the endocrinologist with the blood test results. She said that based on my low FT4 and high TSH (not with much low / high though), I may have hypothyroiditis. I also got tested for thyroid anti-bodies and they came back negative, so I don't have autoimmune thyroiditis. She said it may be a secondary hypothyroiditis or i

Thank you, jtprindl. Yes, you make good points there. I take vitamin D2, 10000 IU / day, with my huge veggie meal in the evening or throughout the day after my fruit meal. I was hoping that taking it in between or after my veggie meal with greens is ok. Maybe I should include fats in my veggie meal too. Actually before starting taking the sea/ocean calcium (combined with D2) for a year and a

Today I had the appointment to have my heart checked. The doctor consulted me and I also had an EKG. She said that my heart is perfect and she recommended to take magnesium even if my level is fine. I told her I am a raw vegan so she said to take magnesium from nuts and seeds then as I know better the plant sources of magnesium She said she could only recommend magnesium in the form of pills. Sh

I also told her that I noticed that in the morning the parotid glands are more swollen and towards the evening they get less swollen. And also that when I massage the parotid glands, they get smaller.

I just came back from my appointment with the immunology doctor. I say it's good news - She said that I don't have an autoimmune disease. - Seeing that my TSH was a bit higher, she mentioned hypothyroidism, but didn't say for sure. - She said that I may have been overworking my parotid glands by chewing so many raw fruits and veggies. - Also, she said that I may have certain anoma

Prana, thank you so much for sharing your opinion, it's good to know SueZ, why did you have your salivary glands removed? Was there a reason for that or you went for a biopsy and they just removed them altogether? The immunology doctor told me to have just a biopsy of the salivary gland in the lower lip - which as I understand should be taking out just a tiny bit of the inner lower lip to

Thank you so much, Prana. Yes, removing stress from my life is so important for my health. I've been reading about deep breathing for helping the lymphatic system, but I need to find a good explanation on how to practice deep breathing (which I rarely do and not correctly). ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Today I had the appointment with the best orthopedic hip surgeon in my country and it went really well. He is such a wonderful doctor and person, he examined me, explained my MRI and X-Ray, and took the time to answer my questions (he even told me to ask him questions). The conclusions are as follows: - my left hip is very bad, the situation is very serious - it's a miracle that I don't have

Today I had the appointment with the best orthopedic hip surgeon in my country. Some of the conclusions were: - the left hip is in venous stasis (I'm not sure if it's the same with bone avascular necrosis - which is part of my illness). The venous stasis causes the alteration of the metabolism (but not hormonal imbalances): the cells aren't nourished, the waste isn't eliminated (it made me thi

Thank you so much, NuNativs. It's great that your wife is fine. I guess an important factor in my life is too much stress as well, I need to let it go and solve that part. I will go soon and have my heart checked out. I hope nothing is wrong too.

Thank you everyone for your advice For today's menu, my magnesium is at 166%. In the past (when I was still entering my foods into Cronometer - I stopped doing that lately, I did it today for this thread) it was between 76% and 121%. My menu is usually made of apples, oranges, mandarines, butter lettuce, lemons, carrots, zucchinis, fresh dill, cucumbers, tomatoes (in colder seasons). D

Hi, SunLoving, May I ask what is your age? If you look in my diary, recently I've been dealing with the possibility of having an autoimmune disease (I so hope it's not the case). My thyroid turned out great in ultrasound, but my TSH is slightly higher which could be a sign of hypothyroidism. It all started from noticing my lymph nodes in the neck and my parotid glands being swollen after

Yesterday I posted my concern about my parotid glands on Dr. Graham's forum. He asked me if I could post photos and my current diet. After telling him my menu, he asked me if I had my tonsils removed. He hasn't seen the photo yet. Then I took a pic of my face and posted it there. Here is the photo of my parotid glands. Excuse the quality / lighting - I took the pic in the bathroom, in the mirror.

Some details I forgot to mention about my ultrasound appointment: - The ultrasound doctor told me that my parotid glands are connected with my submandibular glands (I understood that they usually aren’t connected). - I also told her that I have a teeth issue on my right side so I chew almost exclusively on my right side, so she said that could explain why my left parotid gland is more swo
