Today we were honored to meet-up with some exceptional people. We were incredibly moved and inspired by each of their journeys for different reasons. However, what struck us was the common thread…. each of these peeps tenaciously seek answers, are incredibly smart and courageous. They have undoubtedly earned the title of “Para(thyroid) troopers” and we are in awe of their ability to persevere.
Our Northern California group is definitely a growing contingent, as you can see in the above photo taken at the event. Several others had hoped to attend but unfortunately couldn’t make it – however we look forward to meeting each and every one of you really soon! We are excited for one of our peeps who will be having surgery later this month and we wish this dear friend all the best. Perhaps we will hear this story in a future blog post.
Osteoporosis Awareness Month We have been making a concerted effort to reach out to the Osteoporosis community, as we imagine many are suffering from primary hyperparathyroid disease being the root cause of their condition and they simply do not know it. Earlier this month we participated in a webinar with Dr. Lani Simpson. She specializes in osteoporosis and hormone health and is the author of No-Nonsense Bone Health Guide. If you missed the webinar you may LISTEN AND WATCH now.
We are also excited to announce that we have been interviewed for an online article coming out in Health Central later this month and we will let you know once it is published. The timing is also coordinated with Osteoporosis Awareness month.
Podcast Update….Our WordPress stats for our podcast page have exceeded our expectations to date….750 views in just a month! A new podcast “In The Operating Room with Dr. Deva Boone” will be coming out soon. This is one you won’t want to miss!
I want to thank you so much for your answers and that it made going into surgery with so many of my questions finally answered. I am two weeks post-op and my levels are down to 9.3. The first time in over a year. My levels had been staying around 11.2 so that is great News! Keep up the good work and I am spreading the news myself that women need to have these levels checked!
