Dr Oz: Constant Mood Swings?
Dr Oz heard from a woman who said she feels like her moods have a mind of their own, although she tries to start her day with the best intentions. She said she can be extremely happy, and then the smallest thing can set her off and she’ll become extremely angry or upset. She said when she’s getting dressed, she gets agitated and can become really frustrated. Her husband nicknames her the bear because she can be in a fun-loving mood but then all of the sudden, she’s not. She admitted that sometimes she pushes her husband away.
She said hunger can be a trigger for her and also kept referring to a warm feeling inside.
Dr Oz: Mood Swings Interrupting Life
Annemarie joined Dr Oz and said she’s not a horrible person, but her mood swings affect her home life a lot. She said she makes her husband feel very shut out. She said that there are a lot of little triggers at home that can easily set her off, whether it’s her husband or her kid, but it’s not something that should cause that much of a mood swing.
Dr Oz wanted to share some of the results he got from testing her, so he turned to the Truth Tube. They tested her blood sugar and found that it was normal, and then they tested her thyroid, which was also normal.
Dr Oz: What Causes Mood Swings
Dr Oz then explained that there are three other factors that could be contributing to her mood swings: caffeine, sleep, and diet. He explained that because Annemarie drinks three regular sodas a day, her caffeine intake is way above normal. As for sleep, she’s only getting about four hours a night. She’s also eating too many carbohydrates and simple sugars, creating a sort of wave.
The good news is that Dr Oz thinks he has a plan that can help Annemarie go from the up and down to a nice, steady line. Annemarie said she would love to make her husband feel more loved and would love to be a better person overall.
