Wow, I didn't realise all you were going through. Interesting about
the hypochlorhydria....what is it that you're doing about
that..taking HCL supplements?
Have they checked your thyroid? Have they done all the relevant blood testing for specific markers..etc?
What type of doctor are you seeing? I can relate to the feeling 90.
What are all the meds you're taking at this time?
It's great you're looking good and keeping your food intake healthy and nutritious.
I hope the docs will help find you more answers.
