Topics I've Started

Could It Be I'm Still Not Healing

19 April 2012 - 06:29 PM

I have been gluten-free for a couple of years now, all of my cooking is gluten-free and I rarely go to restaurants or eat at friends. My dr. called and wanted to do blood work just to check on my thyroid and just general health. Today her nurse called to set up a follow up but she's going to be out of the office for a couple of weeks. The nurse was kind enough to email me a copy of my results. My anion gap was low at 6.4, my triglycerides were 32, overall 154 and HDL at 74, LDL was 59. I need to lose about 25 lbs, and eat pretty high fat/protein. Health wise I'm super tired, my bones in my lower legs a lot and often wake me up at night ( my VIT D was 40, so I ruled that out) and the muscles in my quads really hurts when I go up or down stairs (new and surprising since I've always walked a lot). Is it possible that my small intestine is stilled not healed to explain the low tri numbers? Does anyone know anything about the anion gap? Thanks everyone.

Can't Buy A Good Night's Sleep

28 December 2011 - 06:56 AM

I'm so tired, most nights I'm awake by 3:30 and either can't go back to sleep or stumble into and out of sleep for the next hour or so till I'm so frustrated I just get up. For about the last 6 months I'm waking up almost everyday with a headache and my the bones in my legs feel like I've slept on concrete all night :( I'm exhausted when I go to bed but almost dread it knowing how I'm going to feel when I wake up. In my attempt to find any form of quality sleep I've replaced my pillows, bought a thick memory foam mattress pad, tried all the good sleep hygiene recommendations I could find, including blackout curtains, and repainting my room "earthy, neutral tones" I've been gluten-free for 2 years and looked for cc but haven't found any. Throughout my life I've never felt fully rested when I woke up, but this is different, mainly from the pain and total mentally exhaustion. I have thought about trying some form of elimination diet but quiet honestly I'm too brain dead at this point to research. Does anyone have any straight forward suggestions I could try? I take multiple vitamins, fish oil, baby aspirin, and a low dose levothyroxin daily. Thanks in advance for any advice.

Soggy Pizza Crust

08 July 2011 - 06:16 PM

I have a great pizza crust I really like using a gluten-free flour blend however I can't get the bottom of the crust to get crispy. I've tried pre-baking, on aluminum foil, directly on rack, on parchment paper and I still can't get it to crisp up. If anyone has any suggestions please let me know.
