HouseCall: Inositol & Hypoglycemia, Insecticide Detox, Humic Extract, Inositol Review, Amenorrhea & Bioidentical Estrogen, Low TSH
Welcome back to our weekend Cabral HouseCall shows!
This is where we answer our community’s wellness, weight loss, and anti-aging questions to help people get back on track!
Check out today’s questions:
Jenna: I just listened to your podcast explaining Inositol for blood sugar balance and improving insulin sensitivity. I don’t have PCOS symptoms, but I do believe I am insulin resistant. However, I trend towards bouts of hypoglycemia once I get that blood sugar crash which happens frequently. I wanted to know if Inositol (or even the EquiLife blood gluco support) would be more beneficial or more harmful for someone dealing with hypoglycemia?
Emily: Hi dr Cabral! I lived in a place for a few years that sprayed insecticides frequently indoors. I now worry about what that could do to my health. Any suggestions on detoxing any harmful effects or anything I should test for?
Jenn: Hi Dr. Cabral, thank you for all you do. I am a huge fan of doing your seven day detox every quarter and have had great results. I was wondering what your thoughts are on Humic extract if you have worked with it and whether or not you find it helpful for gut health. Thank you so much.
Sean: What product for inositol do you recommend?
Stephanie: Hey Dr. Cabral, thank you so much for committing to taking the time to answer our questions. I’m a Vata 26 year old body type and I’ve had amenorrhea for over 3y since coming off birth control. I’m IHP L2, ran the big 5 labs, did all the protocols over a year ago, progesterone support, all that jaz. My symptoms have dramatically improved and the only issue I’m having is the lack of period. Went to top endocronologists, ran MRI, scans and everything is normal. An an IHP I know all of my hormones are low including estrogen. Took DHEA for 12 weeks as well, progesterone & estrogen support but nothing. It looks like it’s an issue with the hypothalamus/pituitary itself whereby my LH is not high enough for me to ovulate thus functional hypothalamic amenorrhea. Eating plenty of calories, and have gained weight since to reach a BMI of 22 but nothing yet. Since I’m not in a rush to get pregnant, the endo recommended to just wait and see what happens but suggested taking a very very small dose of bioidentical estrogen to support bones in the meantime. What are your thoughts? I obviously don’t want to take them but I’m concerned about my bones.
Stephanie: Me again! I forgot to mention that my TSH continues to go down which is very weird. I’m fully aware of the root causes as an IHP 2 and it’s definitely not heavy metals, fluoride, lack of minerals, etc. It started at 2.3 and now is up to 3.3. Do you think this could due to the hypothalamic amenorrhea?
