Hey Nstocks, I got my thyroid checked a month ago on the NHS! Just go in complaining of all hypo symptoms (particularly exhaustion and depression) and tell your doc you want to get checked out for hypothyroidism. They can't really say no to that!

I made blueberry muffins (with almond flour) last week and used honey and a tone of sugar that I have left from kombucha I no longer make (organic raw cane sugar). The muffins were amazing but they bloated me too. I really need to find a good source of candy which doesn't have HFCS. I can't just eat sugar from a jar and making my own candy won't work - these type of foods just don't turn out when home made.
Why do you need to make candy anyway?
"I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.
In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."
