I wouldn't take a multivit. You would have to analyze each vitamin one by one. For example, vitamin E should be natural, not synthetic. It should be in the form of tocopherols, not tocotrienols, and it shouldn't contain just alpha-tocopherol, but... (more)

Thyroid levels should be tested and don't take "normal" for an answer. Ask for the specific levels because the lab norms are often too high. A TSH level over 2.0 requires further testing. Hypothyroidism mimics PCOS.

I have never heard of such a test and I would not consider it worth it. Fixation on lab numbers is silly. I am not a lab number.

Hi all, regardless of how people feel about vaccinations, what's the deal with the TB skin test? Is it injecting something into you? Is there anything potentially harmful being injected?

From what I understand, live bacteria is not used in the TB skin test, so apparently you are at no risk of developing TB from the test, according to my immunologist.
