Going to a gluten free lifestyle
I have been having more "foggy head" moments in the past six months than I care to remember which led me to talking with one of my best friends from high school (not as close now & to be honest that's ok). I was talking to her about my forgetting stuff & she suggested that i get my thyroid levels checked. So last Friday that's exactly what I did. I had labs drawn that morning and most of my labs were back the next afternooon (some were back way before than). No thyroid issues but i do have mild eczema and a vitamin D deficiency. Both being treated. So what's up with my blog title? Wheat is a trigger food for eczema flare ups. I met with a nutritionist yesterday and the meeting was wonderful. I got some help for me & a little help for my daughter (she thinks she doesn't need breakfast). When I was in that meeting I mentioned my eczema diagnosis to her & what set off that morning's flare up. She suggested I go gluten free due to a possible gluten intolerance. Great not only can I not have regular dairy bye bye every cake i love from the bakery :(.
