I got a new job about a month ago working at an internists office. Right before I started I had a CP and I had to miss a day of work during my first week to see my doctor. I decided to be upfront with everyone as to what was going on, and I'm glad I did.
The internist asked to see my RPL bloodwork that my doctor drew, and then she ran some additional tests. I got all the results back today and found out something interesting. I have a gluten sensitivity! Not an allergy, but apparently my body does not tolerate it. I've never been sick or had symptoms, but they way she explained it was that my immune systems kicks into overdrive every time I eat something with gluten to fight the reaction. Because it's working so hard, my other systems are not running at their optimum level. She doesn't think it's the cause of my losses, but it certainly doesn't help. I'm also low on vitamin B and D, despite taking PNV, so I've got to up the intake.
I find it really fascinating how all of this could be linked. I'm really bummed because bread is one of my favorite things in the world. I know there are a lot of great gluten free options out there, but it's definitely going to take some getting used to. For you ladies who are living the gluten free lifestyle, any suggestions?
Sorry for the long, AWish post, but my mind is kind of blown right now.
