AliS posted a topic in Whole30 with medical conditionsSo, one of the reasons I decided to start Whole30 was: 1. I've gained 30 lbs over the last year and a half (20 have been in the last 6 months) after having kept off weight for over 2 years. 2. I was diagnosed with high blood pressure May of 2016 and I was hoping to have it back down to normal by now. 3. I was diagnosed w/ abnormal thyroid functions November of 2017 4. My eating habits were getting out of control. I was a much healthier eater but after 2 & 3 I had the pity party and found that no matter what I was doing (before we found out about thyroid)... I couldn't drop weight or keep it off. Well, now I have 2 more reasons... I had some pain in my left side and we've had it check and all my other blood work done..... organs are all good, But they said I'm showing inflammation in my blood work so they want me to start a baby aspirin everyday & my cholesterol is high so they want me to reduce my carbs (which I told them & they were happy that I had just started Whole30).
