I was sick with uncontrollable diabetes. I would puff up and my face would look like a strawberry. I got Cushing's disease. It affected my left leg and I kept falling. My bones deteriorated and I broke my ankle in 3 places. I was anxious and depressed.
I had surgery for 3 adrenal tumors and cortisone therapy. It took a while to adjust - for a while I couldn't stand the smell of food and would throw up including my medications.
But thanks to Dr. Livhits, I am not swollen, I am back to being the active person I was before. Now I don't need insulin or pills for blood pressure.
Doctors told me I avoided a heart attack because so many things in my body were uncontrolled. I feel like I have a second chance at life!
