First Nutritionist Visit

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Well, today was my first visit to the nutritionist since my dx three weeks or so ago. I liked him; he's gluten intolerant himself, so was completely in tune with what to eat and what not to eat from the sotre (offered a Larabar sample even). What we did was add some things to my diet:

1. nuts/dried fruit (walnuts, almonds, raisins, prunes, figs, pumpkin seeds ) a sort of trail mix I can munch on.

2. slow cooked sweet brown rice with a touch of seaweed in the cooking process AND/OR slow cooked millet with a pinch of salt.

3. more cabbagy type veggies (though I already lean this way - ask me for my Brussels sprouts recipe sometime).

4. fruits like apples, pears, berries, and to a lesser extent bananas

Then we took out eggs and citrus to help calm the old girl down (old girl = my intestine).

Then came the expensive bit, the supplements. He swears I won't have to stay on them - he thinks we can get our good stuff from food, especially as well as I eat - only have to fix the old girl first. So:

B12/combo B (by metagenics)

Folic Acid (by metagencis)

Stuff called Endefen by metagenics) (to rebuild the lining)

Betaine HCI (by pharmax neutraceutical) (increase stomach acid)

Digest Gold by Enzymedical (pancreas juices?)

Zinlori 75 (zinc that goes to your lining)

Anyway, it was worthwhile. We'll see how I feel in the next couple weeks. I'll keep you informed.

you might want to consider being tested for food allergies b/c they contribute to gluten intolerance and other dig problems. and some of the foods your nutrionist suggested to you are common allergens which will only worsen your condition and waste your money spent on those supplements. and even the supplements cn contain ingredients derived from foods to which you may be allergic.

good luck - and enzymedica is a good product line - consider too their Glutenease

For the newcomers to this site: Taking Glutenease does not allow a person with Celiac to safely consume gluten.
