Hello! I went to the dermatologist today. She was very pleased with my blood work. I asked her if my cholesterol or triglycerides went down and she said no. I was surprised that she was so pleased and asked her why. She said that when I told her that I really was watching my diet, she said "you don't know how many times I have heard that...but when I check their blood work, their levels gave skyrocketed. Your levels have stayed the same when I fully expected them to have gone up. You are doing something right!". That made me feel good. I have been vigilant and have dropped some weight this month because of eating so carefully.
Tried to get my prescription filled and could not. Of course, I have to call I-Pledge first. What a pain in the ass. My husband got his just fine.
Side effects update - the dermatologist did not raise my dosage, as I guess she thought things were progressing well. My eyes were very dry today and lips very chapped. No new pimples, just tiny blackheads.
My husband is experiencing more dry skin on his face and chapped lips. He also has a cold.
