Lorri's Story...

I went into early menopause at age 31, I am 43 now and have fought with my weight for 12 years. I orginally weighed 130 to 135 lbs, and am 5'7", but now I weigh 182 lbs with diet and exercise.

I gained 12 lbs in one month so my family doc ran blood test to find I had complete ovarian failure and high cortisol. I have had high blood pressure, cholesterol, tryglicerides, sugar for years. I just turned in my 24 hour urine test today (7/9/07).

I just got married 2 weeks ago on the beach, please pray they will find this thing quickly and of course take care of it also. I am really starting to fall apart quickly now, especially my muscles and it scares me.
