Can someone help me troubleshoot this bread recipe?
So I made the recipe. Trouble is that my bread isn't as "light & fluffy" as this one. It was a little "sticky" even after I cooked it until it had a nice crust on the outside. It also tasted a little yeasty.
So do you think I didn't put enough water in? Put too much yeast? Any thoughts?
Just made a shepherds pie for dinner for the first time. (onion, carrot, zucchini, with leftover broccoli, gravy and lamb from last night's dinner; potatoes on top.) Way more potatoes than we should be eating, but mmmmmmmmmmmm. I am stuffed.
But boo! the mosquitoes are back. It's Houston, they are thick through half the year, and, well, it's that half again. I should check the schedule as for when the chemical-spraying trucks are going to start up--no, I'm not making that up, once a week or so a truck comes through the neighborhood late at night spraying chemicals out the back to kill the mosquitoes.
CS--my 2 cents is that 2.31 with symptoms is indicative of an issue, but how you treat it would vary. Do you want Synthroid, in order to feel good/functional? I can understand needing to not feel so bad. If it's a regular endo, they won't have other ideas for making your body work better. Childcare is probably an issue for the acupuncture, right? Cause I think the needles have mellowed me in the past few weeks, and my mood is continuing to improve, though there are other things combining to help that. You may have to work to get a whole panel run; the endo office I saw was very numbers oriented, and it took me pointing out... 1.05, 1.55, 2.4, 4.3 as an increasing TSH pattern before they'd do anything.
As for the iron--weird, very weird, I don't understand that at all, but yes, I think you need to run that down. You don't think you have any bleeding in your GI tract, do you? What anemia test is it? Um, in order to have happy red blood cells, you need iron, copper, and B12. You think you've got plenty (too much) copper, right? Any ideas on B12? Beyond that, I'm clueless.
|A deficiency of vitamin B-6 may be recognized by anemia, convulsions, headaches, nausea, flaky skin, a sore tongue, and vomiting. Other possible signs of deficiency include acne, anorexia, arthritis, conjunctivitis, cracks or sores on the mouth and lips, depression, dizziness, fatigue, hyper-irritability, impaired wound healing, inflammation of the mouth and gums, learning difficulties, weak memory, hair loss, hearing problems, numbness, oily facial skin, stunted growth, and tingling sensations. Carpal tunnel syndrome has been linked to a deficiency of vitamin B6 as well.|
|Iron deficiency can contribute to hypothyroidism, which can contribute to altered mental state. This is due to irons role in the conversion of phenylalanine to tyrosine (a precursor of thyroid hormones).|
