Starting Weight: 298.8lbs
Current Weight: 252.4lbs
This Week: – 4.8lbs
Week 1 of the dietary changes for Gout / Insulin Resistance / High Potassium + Calcium.
Had repeat bloodwork done this week for the Sodium / Potassium / Calcium – test results just came back – all back within range.
We are retesting my Uric Acid (Gout) and Insulin levels in another few weeks. (Insulin Resistance is not diabetes – it is a malabsorption issue which causes the cells to block the absorption of insulin so your pancreas continues to produce it in an overabundance)
Glucose, thyroid and parathyroid levels are all normal.
I also sent off my hair sample for the intolerance test I bought… I should have results next week…
Onwards and downwards!

If you aren’t familiar with my situation, basically I live with several autoimmune issues… an “inflammatory overstimulation response” brought on by my basic blood cells thinking they are Spartan Warriors and attacking everything in sight. [Mast Cell Activation Syndrome or MCAS is a main one but also fun things like Fibromyalgia, POTS, Histamine Intolerance, Insulin Resistance and on and on… ]
This is not water weight, not sodium retention and it doesn’t go away until the cells calm down and the actual muscle inflammation decreases. Everything swells – my muscles, my organs, my eyes…
Foods, chemicals, weather changes, environmental elements… literally, sometimes just existing fires them up. Some things I can control and otherwise it is a #justkeepswimming kinda life.
