Hello Like2play, I lost my adrenal glands down to .28 of my cortisol score. This is a flat-line of an extremely weak unit. The healthy morning score should be a 1-1.40. I hear you are into baking. I am too. Bread was my favorite hobby. I would make 2-10 loaves of sourdough in many shapes and sizes per week, oh so delicious. I am looking for a quick bread rising leavening called aluminum-free baking powder. Have you ever heard of it? My body does not like the sulfites in the cream of tarter in the classic baking powder. I ask because I am looking for some for currently home use. My Pamelaís Baking and pancake mix has this version of baking powder. I do well with Pamelaís stuff but wish to bake without the buttermilk and almond flour in the mix. I am sorry you are not at your best. You may want to see a nutritionist as PCOS is curable for some. The healing does occur long before the menopause full shift to stop and all the hormones are out of balance.

The greatest love story is your own.
If you miss out of life to the fullest; they win.
You are the happiness master of your own mind.
Thought is an active dynamic energy to harmonize and corrolate good.
Clear all paths to love thru forgiveness.
I may not recognize the significance until some time later.
Is my resistance to change really that strong?
Impatience does not provide the time to learn the lesson;
Awaken new ways to approach the dissolving of a problem;

Oh thank you for this! It's been awhile since we did GF so I have to "remember" all the stuff. Menus would be very helpful!

I did make GF pancakes with mixed berries this morning and GF cranberry muffins. I make them in big batches and freeze them so I have quick snacks or meals always ready.

I too have PCOS and am way better physically when I an gluten free. The brain fog going away was absolutely a fabulous turn around for me.
Have you tried reading and working with Diana Scwarzbein's books. I currently have The Schwarzbein Principle Program. Here first and second books talk extensively about the physiology behind various metabolic disorders, PCOS being one of them. I lost seventy five pounds when I was really doing what she recommends. Then I went back to eating gluten containing foods and not enough protein, I gained most of it back. I've gone back to eating gluten free and am slowly releasing the weight. More importantly I am functioning better and losing inches in my waist.
One of the great resources in her book is the week of sample menus and list of appropriate snacks. It takes some of the stress of thinking out new menus for me.

Happy healing emoticon

Isn't PCOS related to elevated levels of testosterone in women?

I don't have stomach issues at all. Mine is more fatigue, brain fog, weight gain around the middle, etc. With Polycystic Ovaries my body does not process carbs well, similar to a diabetic.

I have read article after article that describes my "symptoms" so well and they all say gluten intolerence but I have resisted it. I know it can be a royal pain and GF stuff is more expensive.

However... One of the articles I read a few days ago said that gluten intolerence can get worse as you enter perimenopause and I'm 41......

Welcome :)

I am just starting Week Four of a 6 week GF trial. It's certainly a new way of doing things! The good news is, I'm feeling better, and my daughter (who is a week behind me on the trial, long story) is no longer having the debilitating stomach issues she was having.

Good luck! I too was not diagnosed w/celiac but decided to try GF to see if it would help. It really helped a lot. I struggled w/going dairy free. That I was really stubborn one, but was 6 mo later diagnosed with IBS-C.

I gave up grains, dairy, red meat, etc...and am finally feeling healthier than I have in years.

Just take it one step at a time and see how you feel.

Good Luck on the GF baking business!!! May you have more success than you can imagine. emoticon

Hello all-

I do not have an offical diagnosis of gluten intolerance or Celiac, but I am trying for at least the next 2 weeks, to eliminate as much gluten from my body as possible. I have read and read and have resisted this as much as possible, but I think I really need to take this step.

I have done gluten free in my house before. My son was living at home and we met with an Autism doc and other professionals who suggested we go gluten free, casein free and red free. Did this while son was at home so I'm somewhat used to gluten free, but it's been a few years.

I am also starting a baking business and doing gluten free products since I've met many people who have found out then are allergic or sensitive. So.... I'm trying out many new baking recipes. emoticon My sweet tooth is my biggest downfall so going gluten free there will be a big help for sure! I also have issues with PCOS, which have gotten better since I've dropped nearly 80 pounds, but I still have 25 more to go.

Looking forward to all the discussions, resources, etc.
