no, i havent had weight loss since the cidp,with the exception of the few months i was on the trial of prednisone. In fact, Im kind of worried about gaining, without the ability to run or go on long walks anymore—so now i have to watch what i eat instead, uggg –have never really had to do that before:(
I do think that my fatigue and numbness feel worse right before my periods . Im not sure if its due to the hormone changes or that there might be a little more inflammation/water retention at that time of the month?
Do you think going gluten free has contributed to your weight loss? That’s a lot of weight to lose unintentionally. I have never looked into malabsorbtion and how it might effect cidp….but i do know that when Im naughty and eat something real fatty like a mcDonalds cheeseburger that it seems i get an energy burst from it–Im thinking it’s the fat?? but not sure.
I do take fish oil daily because i have read that the good fat in it helps the nerves heal, and it supposedly helps with inflammation—-still it doesnt seem to have the same effect, energy wise as that fatty cheeseburger.
