MICHELE’S PERSONAL STORY

I have been struggling pretty terribly this last year and a half. I had to quit my job because the hypoglycemia attacks on my body were so often, I couldn’t do my job anymore and realized I needed to seek help. I had a surgery a couple years prior for my esophagus in which they probably could’ve known at that time I had GP
But no… it’s been over 9 years trying to get this diagnosis and now, the only treatment is metaclopramide that is a very dangerous drug, and it’s not stopping the symptoms or helping my bm’s either, which is supposed to. I just am so sick of this. I’ve lost 80 lbs and can barely keep anything as far as weight on. I’ve tried so many things, so many diets. I’ve stuck with the gluten free diet for about a year now, and it’s the only way I can have any bowel movement because I’m not stopped up with wheat and sugar, that’s the hardest thing to eliminate. As long as I don’t eat hfcs (high fructose corn syrup) then I’m okay to have small amounts of sugar. I think I’m diabetic and they say I’m only pre diabetic but I’m going to demand more tests, I sweat when I wake up like my blood sugar is crashing. I have to eat handfuls of food at a time, and acupuncture is actually working for me too. I missed 3 appointments and it immediately sent me into a flare . So now I know I have to keep going to acupuncture. Try non traditional medicine, that’s all I can say, because it’s the only thing that’s given me any relief
