Getting a physical tomorrow. And I’m bringing literature! For the doctor.

She’s sweet, she tried to make my tummy feel better by mentioning peppermint and even sending me links after appointment. But obv it didn’t help. And my skin rashes were no fun either, ‘till I cut out gluten about 2 years ago! (only consistent for the last 14 months).

Sooo I printed a few Nature papers on Gluten/Wheat sensitivity and how it’s a new “condition” that actually exists and what protein markers are present in the blood (although they go away after 6mo gluten free? cool). And what are the typical symptoms to watch out for. =)

I hope she’ll listen. But I’m excited to at least tryyy to help my doctor understand. I even highlighted important parts of the papers.

Ah, I’m such a nerd. =)
