Help My Body Find Balance!
I sent a question yesterday regarding my low anti-diuretic hormone and extreme thirst and extreme urine output. I have been tested for diabetes and am not a diabetic. After some consideration and research on this site I thought perhaps more background information might yield a better solution. In 1998 I had my first allergic reaction to antibiotics. At that time the reaction was so severe I had to be hospitalized. A second reaction in May 2005 was much worse but no doctor wanted to take responsibility to treat me. A dermatologist finally diagnosed Steven's Johnson Syndrome. The external rash and itching were intolerable. I looked like I had been burned in a fire. And my insides felt like they were on fire for three weeks. The thirst I felt was unbearable. I drank at least 2 gallons of water per day and still felt thirsty and hot inside. Recently while taking L-Acytel Cysteine for sinus infection I saw a doctor for a hormone issue and he tested me for low anti-diuretic hormone. The test result did show I have low anti-diuretic hormone, low DHEA, low testosterone, low thyroid (but not low enough to treat, I always have cold hands and feet and low basal body temperature 97.0). It was recommended I see an Endocrinologist for the low anti-diuretic hormone issue but my insurance company does not think it necessary. The extreme thirst and extreme urine output interferes with daily activity and sleep. Now I am experiencing cystic type acne as well as weight gain around my mid-section. I am 46 year old woman, 4'11" tall and weigh 106lbs. Since starting the ACV and baking soda remedy I have a very sore tongue, although my sore throat is gone. I am hoping Ted will respond to my email. I am desperate for a solution.
