I went to the doctor today as a follow-up for the two-week lactose-free diet followed by a two-week gluten-free diet. My doctor did not officially diagnose me as gluten intolerant but suggested I continue a gluten-free diet.
Hands down I feel better without gluten. In two days the constant pain I’ve experienced since July diminished. In a week, I was in no pain at all. I’ve also lost 25 pounds and a pants size since July. Not bad.
Because I never want to be in as much pain again, I am going to continue a gluten-free diet. I bought my first gluten-free cookbooks, and I have more from the library. Almond flour and guar gum is in the mail. Cheers to healthy living and eating well!
