This new medical team (5 Journeys Functional Medicine, Newton, MA) is really on top of it. After one appointment they ordered a ton of tests and discovered SIBO (both kinds) and that I am diabetic .
Not one Dr in the past 8 years of specialist after specialist after specialist even suggested those tests!
They also tested food sensitivities, and i am intolerant of bovine dairy, eggs and gluten. The nutritionist assures me that once my gut heals i may be able to slowly add those back.
So now I’m eating gf, dairy free, sugar free and fasting for a minimum of 12 hours overnight. And i just got the blood sugar kit, starting tomorrow I’ll be checking blood sugar/stabbing myself every few hours. Yikes.
But----I’m feeling better, the constant bloat is gone (tbh i looked 19 months gone and my belly was as hard as a drum—So uncomfortable!), I’ve def got less stomach pain, and far less burping. The question is—can I live like this forever? ME? The bakery queen?!!
Stay tuned lol!
