    Carolyn, thank you for your continuing coverage of women’s heart issues.

    This month, I shared your blog, and other articles that I clipped with my cardiologist. Some of the articles were related to my conditions, but most were the newest, most updated stories and advances in heart health that I thought could positively impact other patients like myself.

    I also went to my endocrinologist with your blog in hand. I am almost 1 week in on thyroid medication now, and am ever hopeful that my coronary microvascular disease will calm itself down. Fingers crossed.

    Thank you for caring and continuing to share.

      I really appreciate your kind words, Jana. Good luck in your current round of treatment! 🙂
