  1. Knitty Kitty, you might be on to something! I did not know B1 could elevate liver enzymes! I know choline deficiency can cause fatty liver, so these things are worth looking into. Thank you.
  2. Hey Kate! I am certainly not a doctor by any means. All I can do is give my scenario and let you do with the information what you will. Your lethargy/fatigue sounds different to mine. Yours seems more physically based. Mine is more central nervous system; like chronic fatigue. My...
  3. I finally had my blood work done. All micros, except iron, are well in the upper ranges of normal. Woot! I guess that means intestines are healing. Fatigue still plagues me, though. Not as much as it used to, but I feel only 25% better. The average news is my ALT and AST levels are sitting...
  4. Thanks for that. I just watched it. My diet is high in protein and I do not eat as much fat as what is recommended on most ketogentic diets. Like I said, my diet was so severely lacking for so many years that this is the first time I have ever felt I am close to getting what I need. But I take...
  5. Well, well! It has been a while. I needed time away from social media and only inching back towards the more sensible ones now. I hope you are all well and keeping sane in these very ... unique times. I decided to try the carnivore diet. I had been listening to Drs Ted Naiman and Paul Saladino...
  6. I do not know, RobMass. I have been on the carnivore diet for two plus months now. I can eat without fear, I hit all my nutrients, I am absorbing a lot more of my food and my skin is better than ever. It is a bit of a cop out to live this way, but my mind is so much more at ease than...
  7. The grief... Oh yeah, it is real. I mourn for the opportunities I knocked back food wise, for I was one of those women you spoke of! I avoided fattening foods, and I had no guidance on how to eat, and THEN I took up body building in 2010. Been clean eating since then. All those croissants I never...
  8. Like everyone here, it is a personal journey. The pain and bloating were the first to subside. Migraines and hay fever then disappeared by the second week. The horrid exhaustion was lessened by the end of week three. My arthritis has decreased substantially and I noticed that by my sixth week. ...
  9. Sheesh! 11 days in?? Oh no, my sweet! I am 4 months in and only just starting to see any weight gain. I dropped for three months and just had to have faith. I have been 64-65 kg for the last five years, eating 50% more calories than a healthy woman of my age and size would eat normally. And I was...
  10. Hi. I'm only four months into life post diagnosis, but have been lifting weights since I was 18, on and off over the years. Been serious about it since 2010 and I am now 46. I sought medical help for myself when I found my weights at the gym were declining rapidly and I literally cried even...
  11. Yes, BuddhaBar, I can relate! I thought I was bullet proof til mid 2019. Was a rude shock to discover my frailty.
  12. I left off my last blog entry about to see my GP for my ongoing lethargy issues. My iron stores are now in the normal range (yay!) and my fasting blood glucose is 5.4. She left me with the advice to allow time to heal things and that there is nothing she can find that is wrong with me. Resting...
  13. Ok, saw my GP. She seems to think there is something else going on. If my blood tests come back normal for iron and fasting blood glucose, she'll refer me on to a gastroentereologist. I think it is a little beyond her expertise. At least she is honest. I have started taking B complex. A tiny...
  14. Thank you for the very kind welcomes! Dark chocolate (95%+) fan here. And I am really enjoying organic cream. My body feels starved of fats, so I am lapping them up. I am looking forward to getting hold of animal oils to cook in. Food does taste much better cooked in them.
  15. I am finding, as I get to reset my body and start to know a gluten-free version of me, that my job is a place of stress and angst. I do not want this sort of life any more. I need a job and work environment more in tune with who I am becoming. Have any of you found the same happening to you...
