i'm new on here. I'm 32, recently signed up for Personal Training at my local gym, as part pf my well-being assessment my instructor asked me if I had experienced any digestive problems, I explained that I get bloated, tired, abdominal pains. So alongside my exercise He suggested I cut out wheat/gluten, dairy and processed foods (as much as possible) to see if these symptoms improved. I cannot believe the difference! I feel so much more energetic, the bloating all but cleared up (I had assumed this was normal), along with all the other unpleasant issues I was having. I've tried colonic irrigation in the past which had resulted in the suggestion that I suffered with wheat intolerance, although at the time I was unwilling to go GF and dismissed the advice (I regret this now). I've been reading about your experiences with unhelpful GPs and the difficulties faced obtaining difinitive diagnoses which puts me off seeing a doctor. In you experience is it worth the hassle? or should I wait and see what happens? i have a family history of autoimmune problems on both sides which along with the recent improvements to my health is difficult to ignore.
would love to hear from you! J
