In October 2011, I went to visit Dr. Grace Alessi for the fatigue and weight gain I was experiencing. Since I’m an ironman athlete, it is normal to be tired from the heavy training load. However, the weight gain shouldn’t have been an issue. Dr. Alessi ran several tests to check my thyroid, adrenal glands, and others. Dr. Alessi was the first doctor that went into this much detail and helped me FINALLY find a solution for my problems.
