Week 2 of the dietary changes for Gout / Insulin Resistance…

We are retesting my Uric Acid (Gout) and Insulin levels next week. (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)

This week was pretty good… The changing weather and storms have made things a little rough but in general – I am going okay… Onwards and downwards!

✳️ NEXT MINI GOAL: 223.8lbs
✳️ NEXT MILESTONE GOALS: 198.8lbs (by end of 2021)

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.
