- HEALTH TRACKER
Rose, a couple of things are jumping out at me here. First, nothing against your GP, but as a general rule the people on here can be a much better guide. Most often we generally end up educating our family doctors to some extent. You'll want to post your labs, vites with amounts and times, typical daily menu, and other pertinent info. When you said that you have a lot of food allergies, that caught my attention. I recently experimented with giving up eggs (I hated to do it). It made a huge difference in my nightly bloating and pain.
Also, what probiotic do you take and how often?
Lactose is in a lot of stuff other that milk. Read labels. Try only using cheddar cheese for a while. Hard cheese is sometimes the only kind that is tolerated.
I was really hesitant about starting infusions. Ha! Now I love it. It's easy peasy and makes a big difference in how I feel. I just get regular ole cheap iron dextran. You need to get hooked up with a hemo that understands and has worked with WLS patients who malabsorb iron.
I'll be interested in hearing the results of your CT.
