Well its been two years since I was DX'd its going pretty good. I was still having problems with energy levels. I finally went to the Dr. and said you have got to do something about this, he did blood work,  found out it was folic acid I was lacking. So I did a search and found I can be low on other stuff also. So tomorrow I have an appointment with my Dr. I am going to ask him if I can see a nutritionist. He asked me a long time ago if I wanted to see one and I was a lil hard headed about it. But then I found I was , corn, and soy intolerant and Lactose intolerant , I think I should go see one. Hopefully he will send me to a good one!  I did find out the folate is the cause of my hair graying, my hair falling out, my toenails falling off, sores in my mouth, I was kinda ticked with all the missed diagnoses. But it is what it is and what can ya do? Most of my friends are pretty supportive, my problem mostly is eating out. I prefer not to. I am going to travel to Mackanaw the end of the month I am going to find a small microwave and bring my own toaster and bread. Aldies has a nice bread that I love and is cheaper :) .... If we go to a restaurant I ask that they change gloves, Talk to the chef and they usually are very good. Sometimes they will lay a piece of foil down to cook your steak. And change to a clean utensil. But I am kinda cringing. Might take some cold meats and just live on sandwiches. Not sure yet.Have a nice day everyone!

It is frustrating how doctors skip things - like your folic acid levels. Glad you are doing better.

When traveling or going out with others, sometimes I find its just easier and less stressful to bring my own! I try to bring a treat, too. Makes me feel less sad/ left out/hungry. Lol

Hi There, good to see you around.  It's a process getting back your health.  Very discouraging at times.  Keep moving forward.

Good to hear from you! Start sautéing those greens with some bacon (good source of folate)! I eat them for breakfast. Plus, they can often be absorbed better by the body than supplements (my opinion!)

Because I have a corn intolerance I have a problem with bacon. Not sure it is corn or nitrates or what. I have only found one kind of bacon I can eat and it's up north. I eat alot of greens! Love to put them in eggs. I don't know why I am low on FA. Maby a part of my Villi not healed??I read that alot of the grains have Folate. I am going to Macinaw Island in about a week and yes I am taking my own toaster and looking for a small toaster oven I can take so I can cook a few things. Funny I first think of Garage sales LOL Nope need a new one! Silly me! I have decided to ban restaurants. I just think I am getting Gutened or some sneaky form of corn .I usually will drink hot tea. Find that some order their Iced tea from sources that put Corn in it. Sometimes maby a salad with no dressing.Some one just asked me how long I have to be on this diet. I said forever! I tell them it is truly a life style change for me.  Thank you for the support

if you have a brand of hot tea that you like <and it likes you back!  :D ), you can make your own iced tea (or "sweet tea" as it is known as down here, lolz)  just brew a pot of tea and mix it with simple syrup (3/4 c. sugar, 1 c. water, heat it until sugar is dissolved)  i like to put lemon in mine :)  sometimes ;)

Hey W8in, it's good to see you! Hang in there. You've been on the diet for two years. It took me over three years to eventually get corn back so here's hoping it happens for you too.


gluten-free since June, 2011

It took 3 !/2 years but my intolerances to corn, soy, and everything else (except gluten) are gone!

Life is good!

notme, and Bartful, I make my own tea all the time!! My latest thing is making flavored water with either lemon and lime or cucumber. Cut it up, put it in water and let it set a day or two. Wow!! Very good!! Bartfull, I hope I can get corn back!! Sooner or later.. It makes eating a lil simpler!!
