The other thing to consider is that you might have more food intolerances. Dairy and nightshades are making me tired right now. It's a 1-2 days delayed reaction that continues for 3-4 days after I eat the problem food.

Are you supplementing with zinc by chance? Too much zinc can make your hair fall out, it was happening to me till I found that out and scaled back my dosage.

Just spoke with the nurse (read the letter to me that the doctor is sending) she said my iron level was on the low side but doesn't think it's causing my symptoms. Vitamin d and b12 were both in the normal range. Thryoid levels were also normal. At this time she recommends that I consider an antidepressant as she feels that is what's causing my fatigue.....sigh I'm not going that route.

I started taking melatonin a couple nights ago also picked up fish oil, b12, and calcium for good measure lol. I'm going to be doing aloe Vera juice with this as it makes my skin feel better.

As soon as I get my actual test results I will double check everything but geez they sure don't want to help me unless it's to take an antidepressant.

Good on you! You are on the right track!!

Having a copy of your test scores helps a lot. Being on the low side for iron can give you symptoms. It's sad, but Dr.s aren't trained in nutrition. It's an elective course, so they aren't much help in guiding you on supplements.
Their training is more chemistry related. They look for what chemicals(Rxs) will ease a symptom. A lot of them don't look for the CAUSE of the symptom. :(

In general, I think most people benefit from fish oil, D3, a good multi with Bs, and a calcium suppliement? Add in iron, if needed, and Glusosamine Chondroitin is wonderful for your joints if you have any aches and pains.

Once you heal more, you may not need supplements, but at first it's a good idea to take them.

You've already gotten good advice but I'd like to reiterate the "find another doctor" part.

If you aren't comfortable with your doctor and feel that he or she isn't listening to you, it's time to look for another.

No zinc and I'm seeing yet another dr sometime this week. Unfortunately my choices are pretty limited as we live in a small community and I can't go to a specialist without a referral, every doctor I've seen wont give me one because they don't feel I need it. They treat me like a hypochondriac...sorry I want to be healthy.

I watch what I eat very closely, only being a few months in I'm sure it's going to get better....eventually.

Yay! Congratulations! That could definitely confuse your symptom-tracking :lol: Is it your first baby? Any idea when the baby is due?

I bet your doctor will be surprised!!!

This is my 3rd my boys are 5 & 9 and I haven't seem my primary doctor yet so she doesn't know but I did call the reproductive clinic to let them know we didn't need their services anymore and the nurse was completely shocked! The endocrinologist told me he didn't expect gluten free to make any difference well apparently he couldn't have been more wrong.

We are looking at an October baby =)
