Thesmophoria > Hemochromatosis + Fructose-Free, Gluten-Free Diet = Fun Times

Posted 13 February 2013

I'm a 35-year-old woman with hereditary hemochromatosis. I'm supposed to have zero problems til menopause, but in my 20s I had severe iron overload.  

After the bloodlettings, things went along OK. But now I'm diagnosed celiac and gluten-free...and my celiac anemia tendencies are removed, allowing the iron free rein in my system.  It's...


Thesmophoria > Celiact: A Brief Experiment

The probiotics seemed great.  I mean, no problems...
