Well, hubby and I have been gluten free for over three weeks now. I'm feeling GREAT! We did experiment a bit and had a small amount of gluten to "see" if we truly are gluten sensitive.... and we definitely are. We were sick to our stomachs after having just a smidge.
I think our biggest challenge is social acceptance on some levels, mainly with family. Gluten is not the same as glucose. And gluten sensitivity CAN happen even if you were raised on wheat, pasta, etc.... perhaps that is why it happened.
I would like to say that I went to the ENT for a follow up and all of my sinus issues and flare ups as of this time ARE GONE. He doesn't even see evidence of a problem. Our next "hurdle" is good ole cold and flu season. He does feel that gluten free can be thanked for such a clean bill of health. We had a nice chat about the pros of being gluten free.
Now that I'm done with the steroids and I'm done with AF, I'm hoping to see a loss on the scale this week. I will say though that for the 2+ weeks I was on the steroid... I gained no weight! I did have the typical AF bloat but no significant weight gain.
So now.... bring on the weight loss! Here's hoping! :)
