  1. Struggling

    I do take the vitamine D that looks like green footballs, but they are the ones that my doctor prescribed. What is the difference between the 2 and is it a prescription like the ones I have now?
  2. Struggling

    Thank you all so much for the feedback!!!! After 6 months of IV iron it has gone up enough to be acceptable same with the B12 shots. Even though they made me feel like crap they did work in raising my levels. Unfortunately Vit. D is proving to be a much bigger problem. I have several more months of the 50,000 IU twice a week so we will see if that helps. I do seem to prefer raw vegtables over cooked ones. I do think it has a lot to do with texture. I guess I am lucky in that I don't get deathly ill when I do eat something with gluten just extremly gassy, stomach cramps and then the diarrhea hits. I do like the idea of trying something several times rather than trying it once and giving up totally. Thank You again for the suggestions, Tami
  3. Hi everyone, I am new to this board. A little background. I was diagnosed with Celiac about 5yrs ago. I do believe I have had it for about 20yrs but that's another story. I am REALLY struggling because I HATE vegetables!!!! I always have. I didn't realize what a finicky eater I was until I tried to go gluten free I mostly eat chicken and rice but do like fruits and corn. Because of this, I continue to struggle with raising my levels with Vitamine D, B12 and Iron. I have done IV iron, which has helped, B12 shots which I hated because they made me feel sick and am currently taking 50,000 IU of Vit. D TWICE a week. My level was down to 17. I'm just so frustrated!!! I guess I'm just venting to people who might understand. Thanks for listening, Tami
