In Topic: How To Cope After Negative Blood Results

Doctors (and the medical tests they use) don't know everything. It was just a very short 60 years ago that the polio vaccine was developed. Heck, bloodletting was still in use in the 20th century! Listen to your body...it knows...

In Topic: Update On My Plans

22 January 2012 - 10:36 AM

Yesterday we went to a Chiropractor and an eye doctor. Last year when I had back pain we went to a normal doctor who ran tests for kidneys, bladder, and I would assume any other organ that could have been a culprit. I believe all came back fine and my back pain went away. So yesterday I had a massage and an adjustment. I'm not feeling much better in the way of back pain, and the chiropractor says I don't put my shoulders back far enough in my posture. He was telling me how much better people feel after adjustments and how much better they sleep. I didn't sleep any better and I don't feel any better. But maybe it takes time.

At the eye doctor I got a prescription for a pair of glasses, my eyes are way too dry for contacts.

Ok now to my diet plans. I'm going to try to eat a cleaner and healthier diet. Fruits and Veg with meat. I'm not going to cut out meat for my cholesterol, because my cholesterol is in healthy ranges. And here in Utah meat is always apart of dinner. This part might make you guys a little angry but I'm not going to cut out gluten either. I am surely going to cut back on processed foods which means cutting back on gluten but I am going to allow myself a piece of pizza on pizza night, or a roll at Sunday dinner. I'm not going to be eating half as much gluten as I do now, but I will be eating some.

Here are my plans. I am sure they will make me healthier and happier. I am now enrolled in a gym class at school. We stretch every day. We also run and lift weights. For now these are the plans I have decided on, if I don't get any better then I will have to cut out gluten. One step at a time. Thanks for all the responses and help you guys are amazing.

FYI...dietary cholesterol--eating meat and eggs--has nothing to do with serum cholesterol levels.

In Topic: Dad Meant Well.....

I feel so bad. My dad knows all about my gluten issues (yet he won't get tested himself). Anyway, last night he called me and told me he made meatloaf and made an extra one and wanted to bring it down for us for dinner. I asked if it had any bread in it. His response? "Yes, I put a tiny amount of Italian bread crumbs in it, but it's not enough to bother you." I seriously almost lost it. I said I was sorry, but there was NO WAY I was eating it, that ANY amount would bother me and I can't have ANY bread crumbs, bread, gluten, etc.! I feel really bad for having to tell him I wouldn't eat it, but geez.....he KNOWS that I can't eat that!

I guess it just goes to show no matter how vigilant we are some people just won't get it. <sigh>

I hear this type of thing all the time from my mom...I've read some good analogies on this forum but can't remember them this morning. Fellow Celiacs and Gluten-Intolerants...what say you?!
