Yesterday I had to take my eldest down to the drs for a Blood Pressure Check, which is ok , and staying on his usual meds, Anyway whilst I was there i though i better check that this Gluten Free Diet is really what i should be on, considering i have a intollerance to sugar,
It turns out I that I should not have been told to go on a Gluten Free Diet at all. the Gp had sent a little not via the PC inticating (Low) glu and + Fibre.. Admittedly the nurse thought it was odd but was sent away to follow the GF diet..
It turns out what the Dr meant was a Low Glycemic/Glucose diet and high Fibre, so i need to re-stock the food cupboards again, but since i can eat bread I have had about a slice of brown bread, and all i have had since is sodding pain.. if anyone out there can adivice re low Glycemic/glucose diet i would be grateful,
As you may have read on a previous Blog I suffer with IBS-D for past 6 years or longer and PCOS for the past 13 years, well diagnosed but had it since Puberty,, Anyway I had to have a routine medicine appointment at the Drs surgery on Tuesday last week just to make sure i am on the right meds for my conditions….
My Normal Dr is off on long term illness so i had to see one of the others, this is not a problem to me as they are all great at my practice but their treatments are all different for the same conditions.. This time my Dr blew me away… He has stopped my anti sugar tablets that i have been on for the past 13 years well on and off as they stop them now and again but now i have had a Hysterectomy some say i need them some say i don’t as they are normally given to people who are trying to conceive as it can help overweight women to loose weight..
I was also on a drink to help me go to the loo (IBS-D) but this was hit and miss as one dr would say take every day and another would say take only when you feel pain, so as i don’t get much pain i was not taking the drink..
Tuesday became a new day to the rest of my life I think… like i said the anti-sugar tablets known as metformin and my drink meds Fybogel with mebeverine has been stopped and changed to the normal Fybogel that i must take 2 times a day (breakfast and dinner) after the meals…
But the biggest change is
Yep No Gluten Diet, Yep panic kinda set in as i do like bread, cereals and chocolate. But i better do it, i am not a coeliac but the Dr feels that i may be intollerant to the the Gluten and its not helping my guts or bowels.. i did find this on a web site so please do take a read http://www.mindbodygreen.com/0-7482/10-signs-youre-gluten-intolerant.html
So far things have been ok with no gluten but the biggest thing is that Gluten Free Products have double the sugar and more calories than normal foods, and more expensive too, but i have to do it and so far i my tummy has less bloating and i seem to have more energy about me, then again i have not had any cravings for anything that i should not be having.. watch this space…..
