A quick google search tells me I'd have to be taking 40,000 - 50,000 IU a day for at least a couple months for that to happen. Between my multivitamin and sublingual D3 I'm getting about 5,500 IU a day and I don't get it from anywhere else, like the sun, since I can barely go outside. I've only added the 5,000 from the sublingual a couple weeks ago. I'm not too worried about it.
It looks like us newbies just need more time to recover. Thanks again everyone. It's good to know that we're not alone.
Yep I nailed a JAXpac meal prep kit on amazon day and have been leaving my house more with it packing my own gluten-free herbed flat bread, salads, almond butter, and seeds with me. Made a nice vegan taco soup the other day with my own cheese sauce, keto salsa (watered down low carb version thickened to a sauce with konjac) miracle rice, and jackfruit meat sub, was great with some taco seasoned thin flat breads from my newest recipe used as tortillas. Lifes been good for me this month celiac health wise. >.< everything else is SUPER bad lol.
Yep, we really have it good when you think about it. The only treatment for us is eating gluten free. No pills, no chemo, no radiation. And there is plenty for us to eat, especially now with so many gluten-free foods on the market that are tasty. Labeling laws make it easier too. 20 years ago, these things were not true and celiacs had to be wary of so much. I am glad to hear you are taking your own food when eating out. Kudos!
I am only 7 weeks gluten free and it hasn't been that bad. I am a silent celiac so I may be glutening myself without knowing it. However, it hasn't been as bad as I thought. There are a lot of foods I can eat. When I have had to eat out, I bring my own salad. At home, whatever I prepare is gluten free. A friend of mine who had breast cancer a few years back, contracted Parkinson's last year and the. Found out her cancer is back. It really put this in perspective for me. I don't have to take pills and deal with side effects, I don't have cancer. I have to watch my food intake. I can do it.
