“Lost 40 pounds…even more important, the fatigue was gone” – Linda
My problem began when I quit smoking 4 years ago. I started gaining weight. I tried to lose weight on my own, but to no avail. I went to a weight loss clinic and started their program. They kept telling me that I must be cheating because I wasn’t losing weight and I was not in ketosis.
In August, 1988, I moved to Florida and tried another weight loss clinic. After 6 months of staying on their program of 800 calories a day, I lost 4 pounds. Discouraged and very depressed I went to an endocrinologist for help. My thyroid was under active and I was given Synthroid. A year later I was even more depressed, constantly tired, headaches every day and still overweight. I talked to my doctor. He told me I would just have to live with myself as I was, overweight and tired. I told him I refused to live the rest of my life the way I felt. He told me I needed to see a psychiatrist to help me accept the way I was. This caused me to feel even more hopeless, depressed and discouraged. I even felt I must be going crazy. Every night for months I cried myself to sleep, growing more and more despondent.
Fortunately, I was told about Dr. Wilson. He explained to me what could be causing my metabolism to be so sluggish and that the depression and fatigue could be related to Wilson’s Temperature Syndrome. In just a few short weeks of beginning treatment, I was beginning to feel less fatigued and the depression was lifting. In just a couple of months, I lost 40 pounds, and even more important, the fatigue was gone. Depression, fatigue, and headaches are no longer a part of my day. I eagerly face each new day with energy and a positive outlook. I am so thankful to Dr. Wilson, his staff, and the many hours of research he has done to find help for me. I have truly been given a new lease on life.
