Today was an IF support group meeting. Its a great group, that seems to be growing weekly. We cry, laugh and learn from each other. As much as I hate that we all suffer from IF, its so nice to get together with women who understand.
They had a Creighton instructor come in and give an overview for the people not already charting Creighton. But it was also good for the Creighton charters too. I think she may have convinced me to go gluten free...AHHH!! She was talking about Cortisol levels triggering high testosterone levels, insulin problems, feeling yucky, etc. I thought all those things equaled PCOS. She said yes in a way. So I asked her how/why. She explained to me (and I'm never going to be able to say this as nicely) but basically after years of abusing my body and my adrenal glands, they are saying I QUIT! It has something to do with immune issues and she said she encourages her clients to go gluten free. Removing a outside source of inflammation can help calm the adrenal glands. WHY didn't my RE tell me any of this?
Lord give me the strength to do this!!
