Osteopenia And Gerd

Recommended Posts

I would greatly appreciate some advice.

I have a diagnosis, verified, of POTS and acid reflux, gastroparesis (food doesn't move through my stomach) and CFS. My hair is thinning and I have chronic constipation. I have severe osteopenia. I have severe cognitive disorders and anxiety and depression, no job, and no insurance. Does this sound like I should try the elimination diet? I can't afford the testing, and it doesn't sound so conclusive. My gastroenterologist has never suggested that I am gluten intolerant.

My sister is gluten intolerant from experimentation.

I am concerned about eating vegetables and meats only because of the osteopenia. I am intolerant of the bone strengthening meds because of my stomach and severe muscle pain. Any suggestions? Many thanks! I GREATLY appreciate any advice. Elegiamore

Wow, sounds like things are really tough right now. I'm so sorry that you're having such a hard time. You have nothing to lose by trying the diet. You don't need to cut out milk (unless you discover other issues) so you can still get calcium.

A lot of the symptoms sound like symptoms others on this forum have experienced, so, give it a shot.

Start with the obvious: breads, pastas, cereals, and go from there.

I hope the diet brings you some relief.

Leap, and the net will appear.
