Stomach troubles again!
Sunday, July 21, 2013
I know I've been rather quiet on SP for a while. I'm having stomach trouble again. I was sick last year with nausea for about 4 months with no real resolution found with my GP. I've been seeing a naturopath since then in the hopes that he can find a cause. I'm doing better than last year though, I'm actually eating some, though not enough for the most part.
He also diagnosed iron deficiency anemia. I'm finding that really difficult to deal with right now. I'm on an elimination diet as I suspect some food allergies or sensitivities as well. In general I don't eat enough red meat and right now beef is off limits. My naturopath gave me an iron supplement that is supposed to be really easy on the stomach but I still get nauseous every time I take it. I'm also a really picky person lol, so green veggies are hard for me as well.
I saw a nutritionist last week and I hope she'll be able to help me get the iron in my food as much as possible. I'm waiting on my next appt where I'll get a meal plan. She said she should also be able to help me figure out what the allergies are as I've been having issues with that. I'm sticking to the elimination diet as much as possible in the meantime. I'll try to keep everyone updated on my progress with the nutritionist and the naturopath, I figure someone may find it interesting. It'll also be a good record for myself to keep track of how things go, whether or not there's any improvement.
