I just like learning things the hard way too often because I'm just so gosh darned smart I can get away with anything, right?

My only input on this because I don't have first hand knowledge is did you know that you should not take BIOTIN within 3 days of getting blood work done. Esp thyroid. I have been taking it for years and all of a sudden signs popped up at the lab location. I asked my endo because for years I have been taking it. I mean who thinks that supplements are going to effect bloodwork? Esp non fasting? She said that it gives you low readings so it makes it look like your thyroid is doing better than it is for T3 test.

I don't have any prescription meds except a calcium supplement (osteopenea diagnosis a few years ago). I take an over the counter supplement for my eyes on the recommendation of my optician, as my mother has macular degeneration.
So, today I travelled up to my DIL for a couple of days. The children are having a really difficult time.

Healthy lifestyle has to be key - one area I've been reading about is our gut microbiome...eating a wide variety of fruit and veg isn't just about vitamins, it helps keep this super essential part of us alive and well - which appears to contribute enormously to our immune system. After my pretty horrific 10 days of diarrhea post covid, I took some advice and now take daily a probiotic, plus I drink kefir most days. I've no way of knowing if this has helped me or not, but I am feeling better and I'm hoping it is keeping me healthy! And I have a vitamin D spray now too, since we don't get an awful lot of sun around here from October to April.
I've also started making use of the sauna ay my gym, apparently taking saunas and cold showers are also good for immunity. Plus, it's so relaxing! You can't look at your phone, or even move much, I think it's actually very good for me just to stop and be still if nothing else.
