Ok so I have been hesitant to say (even though all testing is done) that I am gluten intolerant possibly even have Celiac. Well after emailing back and forth with Dr Vikki Petersen (author of the Gluten Effect) I can offically say I have a very serious autoimmune gluten intolerance. I am double DQ1 with Lichen Planus, Iron deficeincy anemia, Severe Vit D deficeincy, Osteomalacia, RLS, GERD, PCOS, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, elevated liver enzymes, severe pitting edema, mild tricuspid regurge.

I have been Gluten Free for 2 weeks now and on vitamins. I can already see a major difference in my energy levels and my muscle weakness is starting to get better. Instead of tolerating only 3 mins on my feet I made it through a 15 min trip to CVS today! I haven't gone shopping in over a month because I can barely walk from the house to the car. Granted I still have a LONG WAY TO GO but this is a fantastic start! :D SOOOOO SOOOO Happy!

Thank you everyone! I have to say I have been tempted a few times to go off track. Especially when they bring yummy goodies in to work. Then I thought about how much better I am feeling and wanting to be able to walk and play with my son and all thoughts of taking a bite go bye bye. ;) I still have a lot of work to do before my cruise next month wish me luck! :D
