A message from the Magic Foundation

On July 22, 2013, a resolution, H.RES 313, was submitted to the House of Representatives for the national creation of “Growth Awareness Week” to be held the 3rd week of September each year. This is a major accomplishment for MAGIC and will help build awareness of Growth Disorders in Children.

We are asking all of you to help get the support we need for this resolution to pass. A simple email and follow up phone call to your local representative from the House of Representatives in your state and in your district asking them to please CO-SPONSOR this resolution. It will only take a minute of your time but can change the future for many children.

Go to http://www.house.gov/representatives/. Go to your state, find the representative for your district, click on their name, which will take you to their web site. Go to “contact” for their email and phone number and ask them via email and a follow up call to please support H.RES313.

Please take the time to help us get the support we need to pass this resolution. You will be helping us build the awareness needed to identify children with growth failure at an early age helping them reach their full growth potential.


Quick thought on heat intolerance

I have been severely heat intolerant to the point of pretty much being sick all summer long. You would think thyroid medication would make you hotter but I am much cooler and tolerant to the heat now.

“Adrenaline response is decreasing. It makes you feel hot, but falsely. T3 speeds up the metabolism but regulates body temperature and decreases the adrenaline response.”

That’s all for today.
