Well, my AHA moment didn't last all that long.
I had tests and trials and more tests.
Oh, I was anemic. So took some iron drips..each week for.three weeks .
Okay, I have a little more energy.
But the trots to the bathroom continued. Groan--then the oscopy tests.
No polyps to worry about, everything looks great.
I was told: No, I didn't have gluten intolerance again. Uh-huh.
Well, It's nice to lose the weight, but not a pleasant way to live my life.
I finally self-diagnosed my problem: I DO have gluten intolerance again! Doctor's remark: Well, maybe you'd better get a second opinion. (Snipe, snipe)
She'd already told me that because of my age I shouldn't get more "colonoscopy" tests for fear of puncturing my colon.
So, I decided to take matters into my own hands, and:
1. Gave away everything in my house that contained gluten,
2. Got new food items that did NOT contain gluten.
3. Thought out my menu for each meal BEFORE sitting down to eat.
Then one morning not too long ago, I got up and felt good! No--make that GREAT!
In addition: My blood sugars are reading more normal.
My FHN has lowered the amount of insulin I need by half. Plus, she and my primary physician know this is what I'm doing and why.
There's a smile on my face
I guess my message is that it's wise to get your doctor's opinion. However, if you're familiar with how certain conditions affect you and you're experiencing them. NOW is the time to act on your own behalf: It's your body.
Take care and SPARKle today and every day
