Feeling Worse

My naturopath/MD suggested two years ago that I remove all gluten from my diet as I had salivary antibodies to gliadin. As a "food enthusiast" and serious bread baker, I was unwilling to do that until the end of January this year. I felt so rotten after baking like a crazy person for my family's Christmas visit that I was willing to try anything. I have had symptoms for years: anemia, vitamin and mineral deficiencies, a rash that moves around my body, fatigue, other embarrassing symptoms. I began to feel better fairly quickly and was encouraged until about three weeks ago. I got the stomach flu that is going around, and was sick for several days. Since then I have not been able to shake a low grade nausea and a great fatigue than I experienced before. I wanted to check here and see if others had had similar experiences. Thank you!

That virus affected the part of your body that was damaged by the gluten. It is a major setback for you. Try to get extra rest, and eat light. It takes time to heal. No help, I know, but it's all I know to tell you.

Keep in mind too, if you took any medications for the flu. they may have had gluten in them.

Thank you, both of you. I hadn't considered that the intestinal/stomach virus could have further weakened a system that was just beginning to heal. I had wondered when friends and family seem to recover so much more quickly than I did. I spent some time reviewing this topic before I wrote in. This helped as I realize I'm not the only one who gets discouraged or fearful. I am in a fortunate position as I enjoy cooking/baking and have for years and therefore have many more options than most. . .Thanks again. It helps to have a place to post my concerns!

A P.S. . .I took no meds, except Coke, wait a minute, I did have an anti-nausea pill that a physician prescribed and it didn't occur to me to check before I took it! I will do that. . .

Thanks again. . .
