Hello Everyone,

I am new to this website. I went to a doctor from the

reference of a co-worker, who is very health conscience.

After trying for 4 months to get into see the doctor, he

had a number of tests ran and after 14 vials of blood.

It took about a month for the entire blood tests to come

back.

After having my follow up consult with the doctor (bioidentical),

he told me I have many issues most of which is a high allergic reaction

to the following items: Alfalfa,Gluten, Wheat, Soy, Oat, Nuts(several kinds), Flax, Eggs, Crab, Bran and some allergic reactions to Cheddar cheese,

Cottage Cheese, Yogurt, green bean, clams, asparagus, mushroom, chicken,

pork, corn and corn gluten. He also told me I have Reverse T3 counts

which are very high... he took me off my thyroid medicine and am

now using T3 tablets instead. Basically I was told I am malnurished,

which seems strange for my shape (round). LOL

So far some of the things I've read are very enlightening and

eyeopening. I'm 55 years old and have mostly cooked from scratch

my entire life, so I don't think this will be a huge difference.

I will just adjust to purchasing new items to cook and bake with.

Today is my first day of being 100% Gluten Free. The main issue

I have is I spent at least 5 hours in 4 different stores that have

Gluten free products and most of them are made with Soy, Eggs, Rice

and Corn of which is on my list of no no's.

Any advice would be greatly apprciated!

PS. My husband told me to change the foods to the ones I need, he will

adjust and said "anything you've made over the last 35 years has been

very good, so I don't have a problem with you changing my diet too."

which made me feel even better. His Mother was diabetic, so he knows

I need to change for health reasons.

Thank you in advance for your helpful advise!

Just want to say "welcome"! How wonderful to have such a supportive husband, and how RARE and wonderful to find a doctor who understands and treats reverse T3 issues!

Don't have any advice, but wish you the best!

Thank you! Am looking forward to learning as much as I can.

I see this as a new experience in life... and love to cook,

so now I'm going back to the experimental stages of cooking

and baking... which I'm up for the challenge. My Grandson

(age 8) is also having food issues, will try some of these

recipes on him as well!

Have a great and sage Memorial Weekend! God Bless!

Mickey, I don't know a whole lot about it, haven't been on it but it sounds like the Paleo diet might suit your needs. There are many on this board who do or have done the Paleo of some form or another. I recall them saying grains are not in it. I understand there are quite a few versions of the Paleo. I'm sure someone will be on here soon to help you out.

Welcome to the board!

Mickey, here are some links to recent threads discussing different aspects of Paleo diets. You may find them informative & I'm sure if you pm some of those posters they will be happy to help you out --- OR --- start a new thread inquiring about how Paleo might work for your situation & sensitivities.
