How to Recognize Gluten Intolerance

Doctors estimate that 1 percent of the population has celiac disease, which is damage to the small intestine caused by an intolerance to gluten. Gluten is a protein found in wheat, rye, and barley products. Even people who don’t have celiac disease may display intestinal or immune system reactions to gluten, and doctors think that about 15 percent of the population may have a gluten sensitivity.[1] While no medical test for gluten intolerance currently exists, you can take several steps to recognize gluten intolerance in your body and start down the road to a healthier future.

Part 1

EditImmediate Symptoms

  1. Image titled Recognize Gluten Intolerance Step 1
    1
    Pay attention to energy your energy level after you eat foods containing gluten. Occasionally, energy levels may slightly dip after consuming a large meal, while your body works to digest the food.

    • Because gluten intolerant individuals have to work harder to try to fight the effects in the digestive tract, they commonly feel fatigue after eating.
    • Unlike the occasional lethargy that may occur from time to time, people suffering from gluten intolerance may be completely exhausted after their meals.
  2. Image titled Recognize Gluten Intolerance Step 2
    2
    Examine your mental and emotional status after eating wheat or products containing wheat. Many individuals suffering from gluten intolerance complain of irritability after eating.

    • Irritability may be related to fatigue or can occur as a result of feeling run down in general, similar to how one feels when sick with a cold or flu.
    • Some people with gluten intolerance report having a “foggy mind” right after they eat. In other words, they easily lose their train of thought and find concentration difficult.
  3. Image titled Recognize Gluten Intolerance Step 3
    3
    Notice when headaches develop after a meal. Headache symptoms are non-specific, and can mimic migraines, tension headaches or cluster headaches. While there is no specific type of headache associated with gluten intolerance, the headache pattern consistently occurs within 30 minutes to an hour after eating for many individuals.
  4. Image titled Recognize Gluten Intolerance Step 4
    4
    Observe changes in your extremities. Often, people with gluten intolerance experience joint pain, and they sometimes experience numbness or tingling in their arms and legs.
  5. Image titled Recognize Gluten Intolerance Step 5
    5
    Watch for symptoms associated with poor digestive health. While people with gluten sensitivity tend to have more non-gastrointestinal symptoms than people with celiac, they can still experience GI discomfort. After a meal, they may experience bloating, gas, diarrhea, constipation and stomach pain.[2]

EditLong-Term Symptoms

  1. Image titled Recognize Gluten Intolerance Step 6
    1
    Make note of fluctuations in weight. Gluten sensitivities are most notably associated with weight loss, but gluten intolerance can also result in unexplained weight gain over time.
  2. Image titled Recognize Gluten Intolerance Step 7
    2
    Pay attention to prolonged changes in mental status. The onset of depression, behavioral changes or mood fluctuations can be caused by gluten intolerance. Include all details associated with your mental symptoms, including the severity of your symptoms and how often they occur.
  3. Image titled Recognize Gluten Intolerance Step 8
    3
    Keep detailed notes about any rashes that develop, including eczema. Photograph the rash if possible, and measure its circumference if the rash is in a localized spot. Make the following notes for yourself:

    • Describe the appearance and characteristics of the rash. Is it raised, flat, circular or blotchy? Do you notice blisters?
    • How does the rash feel? Is it itchy, painful or inflamed?
    • Which conditions make it worse? In other words does tight clothing, hot showers or baths, or humidity make the rash more irritating?
  4. Image titled Recognize Gluten Intolerance Step 9
    4
    Keep track of women’s health issues such as irregular menstrual cycles, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), severe menstrual cramping, miscarriage and infertility. Some doctors now routinely investigate the possibility of a gluten sensitivity in couples who are unsuccessfully trying to conceive and are suffering from unexplained infertility.

 

Part 3

EditWhat to Do

  1. Image titled Recognize Gluten Intolerance Step 10
    1
    Make an appointment with your doctor to rule out celiac disease and gluten allergy. These are 2 serious conditions that can cause long-term health complications if left untreated.

    • Gluten allergy: Symptoms include itching, swelling and irritation around the mouth; itchy rash or hives; nasal congestion and itchy eyes; cramps, nausea, vomiting or diarrhea; difficulty breathing and anaphylaxis. Gluten allergies are most common in children and are usually outgrown by the age of 5. A skin test or blood test can identify gluten allergies.[3]
    • Celiac disease: Celiac disease is an immune reactions that progressively destroys the nutrient-absorbing villi in your small intestine. Your body may not absorb nutrients properly, and your small intestine can become permeable, meaning that its contents leak into your gut. Celiac disease can be identified with a blood test and an intestinal biopsy.
    • If both tests are negative and you suspect you may be sensitive to gluten, a gluten intolerance may be the underlying cause.
  2. Image titled Recognize Gluten Intolerance Step 11
    2
    Speak with your doctor and inquire about diagnostic tests that can detect conditions related to gluten intolerance. Although the tests cannot confirm a sensitivity to gluten, they can confirm the presence of some conditions that commonly occur as a result of gluten intolerance. Some related conditions include:

    • Low iron levels
    • Fat in the stool
    • Poor dental health due to malnourishment
    • Poor calcium absorption
    • Delayed growth in children
  3. Image titled Recognize Gluten Intolerance Step 12
    3
    Eliminate all gluten containing foods from your diet for 2 to 4 weeks. Be on the lookout for hidden sources of gluten in salad dressings, condiments, soups, sauces and even cosmetics. Even vitamins and supplements can contain gluten. Always check ingredient labels on all food and cosmetic products.
  4. Image titled Recognize Gluten Intolerance Step 13
    4
    Keep a symptom tracker journal to note any changes that occur over the course of the diet. Revisit the symptoms pages and notice whether any of the listed symptoms have improved or disappeared since eliminating gluten from your diet.
  5. Image titled Recognize Gluten Intolerance Step 14
    5
    Reintroduce gluten into your diet after the elimination period has ended. Pay attention to how you feel when you begin eating gluten again. If vanished symptoms return after you reintegrate gluten and you feel worse than you did when you were on the elimination diet, you may have confirmed a gluten intolerance.
  6. Image titled Recognize Gluten Intolerance Step 15
    6
    Eliminate gluten permanently from your diet once you have discovered a likely gluten intolerance. To correct the conditions that develop as a result of a gluten intolerance, you will need to eliminate the cause and not just treat the symptoms.

    • Replace gluten-containing foods such as wheat, barley, rye, semolina and spelt with comparable replacements that do not contain gluten, such as arrowroot, peanut flour, quinoa, rice flour and soy flour. Try these tips from the National Institutes of Health to learn what you can and can’t eat.
    • Unlike a gluten allergy, which may improve eventually over time, a general intolerance to gluten is a permanent condition in most individuals.

Miley Cyrus Makes Announcement That Has Shocked The World

#1

Miley Cyrus has a broke the Internet this morning, once again – but this time her announcement is something that has shocked the entire world. “I’m so happy after such a long struggle to be living my true self. Welcome to the world, Miles. Can’t wait for you to get to know him/me,” Miles Ray Cyrus.

#2

The announcement came after what friends and family members are calling “a lifelong struggle that has finally come to an end.” According to sources close to Miley, now Miles, this has been something she has talked about for a long time. Just last year Miley supported #InstaPride on her Instagram page, showing her support for “transgender and gender expansive” people.

#3

Around the same time, her dad, Billy Ray Cyrus, made a comment that had people thinking. He told People Mag in an interview last June, “I hear I might become a father of another son. I just want my daughter to be happy with who she is.” When Billy Ray was asked what he meant by that, he said he was unable to elaborate on the subject. He did say that it was going to be a controversy they were well prepared to handle.

So we applaud Miles and welcome him to his new life. We can’t wait to see what the plans are for his future!

Talk about flip-flopping! Bruce Jenner AKA Caitlyn Jenner is making headlines again. Sources close to Jenner have disclosed that she’s now having doubts whether she’s really a woman and is in the process of asking everyone to call her Bruce again. Jenner claims that after lots of soul searching, she is certain about this decision.

#2

Maybe this scathing depiction of Jenner on South Park or the constant media attention is the source of this latest flip in the ongoing drama that is Jenner’s life. It could also be related to the pending vehicular manslaughter charges Jenner faces.

#3

Earlier this year, Bruce Jenner made national headlines when he revealed on a 20/20 interview that he was going through a gender transition. Jenner’s announcement was a huge victory for the LGBT community that was lacking a high profile celebrity. Jenner, is a retired professional athlete who won the men’s decathlon at the 1976 Olympics and a member of the notorious Kardashian family.

Coming out as LGBT is definitely a courageous but nerve wrecking experience which enables a person to live a more authentic life. Let’s hope that this is a final decision for Bruce and that he’s completely comfortable with himself now.

10 Cancer Symptoms Most People Ignore

And why so many people blow them off instead of heading to the doctor.

December 9, 2014
Before you discount that persistent cough as just another part of flu season, you might want to ask your doctor to give it a second glance. According to a new study by Cancer Research U.K., more than half of adults have experienced alarm bells that could mean cancer, yet just two percent of them believed cancer could be a possible cause.

They asked participants if, in the last three months, they’d experienced a host of different symptoms (some of which could be possible signs of cancer), ranging from persistent coughing and unexplained weight loss to having low energy. If they had experienced any of these symptoms, they were asked to write in what they thought caused it and whether it was serious.

“We aren’t sure why, but it seems there is a mismatch between what people know in practice and whether they apply the knowledge to themselves,” says study co-authorKatriina Whitaker, Ph.D., senior research fellow at University College London. “So while awareness of many of these signs and symptoms is quite high, very few people mention cancer as a possible cause when it’s them who is experiencing the symptom.”

Here, we take a look at the 10 symptoms researchers consider to be red flags. While they could be nothing, the researchers say the point is to recognize that they could also be cancer—and to ask your doctor to check your symptoms out.

1. Persistent Cough or Hoarseness
While a cough here and there is nothing to worry about, a consistent cacophony or a cough accompanied by blood is definitely cause for concern. “Most coughs are not cancer,” says Therese Bartholomew Bevers, M.D., professor of clinical cancer prevention and the medical director of the Cancer Prevention Center at the MD Anderson Cancer Center. “But certainly a persistent cough needs to be evaluated to see if it could be lung cancer.” Your physician should recommend a chest X-ray or CT scan to rule out cancer as a possibility.

2. Persistent Change in Bowel Habits
When your bowel movements aren’t as easy as they once were or your stool appears larger than normal or somewhat deformed, this could be a sign of colon cancer, says Bartholomew Bevers. “It could be a sign that there is a mass impeding the transit of the stool from the bowel,” she says. “This is a symptom where a person should go to the doctor and schedule a colonoscopy to see if there indeed is a mass.”

3. Persistent Change in Bladder Habits
“If there is blood in the urine, that could be indicative of bladder or kidney cancer—but more commonly this is a sign of a urinary tract infection,” says Bartholomew Bevers. Check for an infection first, then pursue other treatment options.

4. Persistent Unexplained Pain
“Most pain is not a sign of cancer, but persistent pain must be checked out,” says Bartholomew Bevers. “If you have persistent headaches, for example, you likely don’t have brain cancer—but it is still something that must be looked into. Persistent pain in the chest could be a sign of lung cancer. And pain in your abdomen could be ovarian cancer.”

5. Change in the Appearance of a Mole
While not all moles are indicative of melanoma, spotting a new mark or one that has changed is something you should bring up with a dermatologist who can screen for skin cancer, says Bartholomew Bevers.

6. A Sore That Does Not Heal
If you have a sore that’s hanging on past the three-week mark, you should bring it up with your doctor. “We would have expected our body to have healed itself by now,” says Bartholomew Bevers, “and you should absolutely get that checked out.” That kind of sore could be a sign of carcinoma.

7. Unexpected Bleeding
Vaginal bleeding—outside of your normal cycle—could be an early sign of cervical cancer, while bleeding from the rectum could indicate colon cancer, says Bartholomew Bevers.

8. Unexplained Weight Loss
“As adults, we try very hard to lose weight,” says Bartholomew Bevers. “But if weight is falling off of you without any effort on your part, that is a big concern and can be indicative of a serious medical problem.” One of those problems, she says, could be malignancy or a tumor.

9. An Unexplained Lump
“Any time you have a lump that is new or a lump that is changing, that is something you should absolutely have looked at by your doctor,” says Bartholomew Bevers. While it could be a benign cyst (and likely is), it could also be “a cancer that is in the subterranean tissue. A lump in the breast, of course, is a very common symptom of breast cancer.” See your physician to get more information.

 

10. Persistent Difficulty Swallowing
Two cancers may be behind this symptom, including neck and esophageal cancer. “People who see these symptoms will often start to modify their diets, eating softer foods without thinking there could be a more serious issue.”

“The bottom line,” says Whitaker, “is that if people are experiencing any persistent symptoms, they should go to their doctor for advice.”

Complete Keto Diet Food List: What to Eat and Avoid

Ketogenic Diet Food List - what to eat and what to avoid

I know it may be challenging to follow a healthy low-carb diet, especially if you are new to it. I hope this comprehensive list of keto-friendly foods will help you make the right choices. The KetoDiet approach is simple: It’s about following a low-carb diet where the focus is on eating real food, not just food low in carbs.

To help you stick with the diet, I’ve also created several FREE meal plans including some that are dairy-free and sweetener-free – check them out!

In short, you should eat REAL food (meat, eggs, nuts, yogurt, vegetables and occasionally some fruits). Apart from the obvious limitation of net carb content in foods, it is also recommended to avoid processed food and any food that may contain preservatives and colourings.

KetoDiet is not just about losing weight at any cost; it’s about adopting a healthier lifestyle.

Below is a list of the most common low-carb foods recommended for the ketogenic diet. If you get my iPad app, you’ll be able to search through thousands of foods included in the KetoDiet database.

EAT Freely

Grass-fed and wild animal sources

  • grass-fed meat (beef, lamb, goat, venison), wild-caught fish & seafood (avoid farmed fish), pastured pork and poultry, pastured eggs, gelatin, ghee, butter – these are high in healthy omega 3 fatty acids (avoid sausages and meat covered in breadcrumbs, hot dogs, meat that comes with sugary or starchy sauces)
  • offal, grass-fed (liver, heart, kidneys and other organ meats)

Healthy fats

  • saturated (lard, tallow, chicken fat, duck fat, goose fat, clarified butter / ghee, butter, coconut oil)
  • monounsaturated (avocado, macadamia and olive oil)
  • polyunsaturated omega 3s, especially from animal sources (fatty fish and seafood)
  • You can find a complete guide to fats & oils in my post here. (which to use for cold use, which for high-heat cooking and which to avoid)

Non-starchy vegetables

  • leafy greens (Swiss chard, bok choy, spinach, lettuce, chard, chives, endive, radicchio, etc.)
  • some cruciferous vegetables like kale (dark leaf), kohlrabi, radishes
  • celery stalk, asparagus, cucumber, summer squash (zucchini, spaghetti squash), bamboo shoots

Fruits

  • avocado

Beverages and Condiments

  • water (still), coffee (black or with cream or coconut milk), tea (black, herbal)
  • pork rinds (cracklings) for “breading”
  • mayonnaise, mustard, pesto, bone broth (make your own), pickles, fermented foods (kimchi, kombucha and sauerkraut (make your own) – best homemade with no additives (my recipes for home-made condiments are here)
  • all spices and herbs, lemon or lime juice and zest
  • whey protein (beware of additives, artificial sweeteners, hormones and soy lecithin), egg white protein and gelatin (grass-fed, hormone free)

Eat Occasionally

Vegetables, Mushrooms and Fruits

  • some cruciferous vegetables (white and green cabbage, red cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, fennel, turnips, rutabaga / swede)
  • nightshades (eggplant, tomatoes, peppers)
  • some root vegetables (parsley root), spring onion, leek, onion, garlic, mushrooms, winter squash (pumpkin)
  • sea vegetables (nori, kombu), okra, bean sprouts, sugar snap peas, wax beans, globe or French artichokes, water chestnuts
  • berries (blackberries, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, cranberries, mulberries, etc.)
  • coconut, rhubarb, olives

Grain-fed animal sources and full-fat Dairy

  • beef, poultry, eggs and ghee (avoid farmed pork, it’s too high in omega 6s!)
  • dairy products (plain full-fat yogurt, cottage cheese, cream, sour cream, cheese) – avoid products labeled “low-fat”, most of them are packed with sugar and starch and have little sating effect
  • bacon – beware of preservatives and added starches (nitrates are acceptable if you eat enough antioxidants)

Nuts and seeds

  • macadamia nuts (very low in carbs, high in omega 3s)
  • pecans, almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts, pine nuts, flaxseed, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, hemp seeds
  • brazil nuts (beware of very high level of selenium – don’t eat too many of them!)

Fermented soy products

  • if eaten, only non GMO and fermented soy products (Natto, Tempeh, soy sauce or paleo-friendly coconut aminos)
  • Edamame (green soy beans), black soybeans – unprocessed

Condiments

  • healthy “zero-carb” sweeteners (Stevia, Swerve, Erythritol, etc.)
  • thickeners: arrowroot powder, xanthan gum (keep in mind xanthan gum is not paleo-friendly – some people following the paleo diet use it, as you only need a very little amount)
  • sugar-free tomato products (puree, passata, ketchup)
  • cocoa and carob powder, extra dark chocolate (more than 70%, better 90% and beware of soy lecithin), cocoa powder
  • beware of sugar-free chewing gums and mints – some of them have carbs

Some Vegetables, Fruits, Nuts and Seeds with Average Carbohydrates – depends on your daily carb limit

  • root vegetables (celery root, carrot, beetroot, parsnip and sweet potato)
  • watermelon, Cantaloupe / Galia / Honeydew melons
  • pistachio and cashew nuts, chestnuts
  • Only very small amounts, better avoided completely: apricot, dragon fruit (Pitaya), peach, nectarine, apple, grapefruit, kiwifruit, kiwi berries, orange, plums, cherries, pears, figs (fresh)

Alcohol

  • dry red wine, dry white wine, spirits (unsweetened) – avoid for weight loss, only for weight maintenance

AVOID Completely: Food rich in carbohydrates, factory-farmed meat and processed foods

1) All grains, even whole meal (wheat, rye, oats, corn, barley, millet, bulgur, sorghum, rice, amaranth, buckwheat, sprouted grains), quinoa and white potatoes. this includes all products made from grains (pasta, bread, pizza, cookies, crackers, etc.) sugar and sweets (table sugar, HFCS, agave syrup, ice creams, cakes, sweet puddings and sugary soft-drinks)

2) Factory-farmed pork and fish are high in inflammatory omega 6 fatty acids and farmed fish may contain PCBs, avoid fish high in mercury.

3) Processed foods containing carrageenan (e.g. almond milk products), MSG (e.g. in some whey protein products), sulphites (e.g. in dried fruits, gelatin), BPAs (they don’t have to be labeled!), wheat gluten

4) Artificial sweeteners (Splenda, Equal, sweeteners containing Aspartame, Acesulfame, Sucralose, Saccharin, etc.) – these may cause cravings and other issues

5) Refined fats / oils (e.g. sunflower, safflower, cottonseed, canola, soybean, grapeseed, corn oil), trans fats such as margarine.

6) “Low-fat”, “low-carb” and “zero-carb” products (Atkins products, diet soda and drinks, chewing gums and mints may be high in carbs or contain artificial additives, gluten, etc.)

7) Milk (only small amounts of raw, full-fat milk is allowed). Milk is not recommended for several reasons. Firstly, from all the dairy products, milk is difficult to digest, as it lacks the “good” bacteria (eliminated through pasteurization) and may even contain hormones. Secondly, it is quite high in carbs (4-5 grams of carbs per 100 ml). For coffee and tea, replace milk with cream in reasonable amounts. You may have a small amount of raw milk but be aware of the extra carbs.

8) Alcoholic, sweet drinks (beer, sweet wine, cocktails, etc.) – you can try my healthier versions of popular cocktails and drinks.

9) Tropical fruit (pineapple, mango, banana, papaya, etc.) and some high-carb fruit (tangerine, grapes, etc.) Also avoid fruit juices (yes, even 100% fresh juices!) – better to drink smoothies if any, but either way very limited. Juices are just like sugary water, but smoothies have fiber, which is at least more sating. This also includes dried fruit (dates, raisins, etc.) if eaten in large quantities.

10) Mainly for health reasons, avoid soy products apart from a few non-GMO fermented products which are known for their health benefits. Also avoid wheat gluten which may be used in low-carb foods. When you give up bread, you shouldn’t eat any part of it. Beware of BPA-lined cans. If possible, use naturally BPA-free packaging like glass jars or make my own ingredients such as ghee, ketchup, coconut milk or mayonnaise. BPA has been linked to many negative health effects such as impaired thyroid function and cancer. Other additives to avoid: carrageenan (e.g. almond milk products), MSG (e.g. in some whey protein products) and sulfites (e.g. in dried fruits, gelatin)

8 Things I Never Knew About Lyme Disease—Until I Got It Myself

This editor never even saw a tick on her. But the effects of her Lyme disease didn’t stay nearly as hidden

October 5, 2016

One morning in the beginning of August, I noticed a tightness in my upper left thigh as I got out of bed.

I had just powered through an intense leg workout the night before, so I wasn’t too concerned. It was probably just soreness, I assumed.

I reached down to try to massage it out, when my fingers stopped at something unexpected—two rubbery, pea-sized lumps an inch or so from the top of my inner thigh.

They were swollen inguinal lymph nodes, a fact I knew since a few other ones had popped up the previous summer.

Back then, my doctor assured me they were nothing to worry about—anything from a tiny cut on the leg to a nick shaving could cause them to swell up, thinking there’s an infection to fight. They eventually went away.

So when these new ones emerged, I figured I’d just give them some time to go back down, too.

But two days later, an oval-shaped, red rash appeared in the same area. It quickly spread to the size of my hand, fingers to palm.

I called my primary care doctor, who was able to squeeze me in for an exam later that day.

The eventual diagnosis: Lyme disease, a bacterial infection that can cause joint pain and other frustratingly non-specific, flu-like symptoms.

That was the beginning of my first-hand crash course on Lyme disease. Turns out, a lot of things most people think about Lyme are just plain wrong.

Real fact #1: You don’t need to recall a tick bite to have Lyme disease.

Real fact #1: You don’t need to recall a tick bite to have Lyme disease.

Each year, around 30,000 cases of Lyme disease—an illness transmitted by the bites of infected blacklegged ticks—are reported to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

But in many cases, you’ll have no knowledge that a tick even bit you.

In fact, only 30 percent of people with Lyme disease remembered a tick bite, a 2010 study in Clinical Infectious Diseases found. And that was in Wisconsin, a Lyme-prevalent area where people would probably be on higher alert for the insects.

As for me? The possibility of a bug bite causing the rash—let alone a tick bite—never even crossed my mind.

That’s not to say it shouldn’t have: I live in Pennsylvania, a state where about 25 percent of all Lyme cases occurred in 2014, CDC data found.

What’s more, two of my regular running courses included short sections of wooded areas, where ticks like to hang out.

But I never even saw a tick on me—scary, considering that the tick was probably attached to my skin for 36 to 48 hours, the amount of time it generally needs to transmit the Lyme bacteria, according to the CDC.

Turns out, ticks are pretty skillful evaders: Because they like warm, moist areas, they often move to your armpits or groin—spots where they easily escape detection, especially since immature ticks can be as small as a poppy seed, says my primary care doctor, Cynthia Martin, D.O., of the Lehigh Valley Health Network.

Real fact #2: You don’t need a bull’s eye rash to have Lyme disease.

Real fact #2: You don’t need a bull’s eye rash to have Lyme disease.

Not only did I miss the tick bite, but I also didn’t think my rash looked like Lyme: It was just oval and red—nothing like the stereotypical “bull’s eye” often associated with the condition.

But while about 70 to 80 percent of people with Lyme disease develop some kind of rash, the bull’s eye rash, which resembles an archery target with red and white circles, is not nearly as common as you may think.

In fact, after analyzing 53 studies, researchers from Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center concluded that only 19 percent of people with the disease in the U.S. develop a rash with the bull’s eye appearance. (Some people don’t even get any rash at all.)

To the professional eye, though, my rash did look like Lyme: Its large, well-defined area of redness had my doctor considering Lyme from the beginning.

But it wasn’t quite that simple: Other skin conditions, especially cellulitis—an infection characterized by red swelling, where bacteria enter through breaks in the skin—can mimic the rash of Lyme.

And my other symptoms—a low-grade fever, fatigue, and swollen lymph nodes—can be indicative of either cellulitis or Lyme disease, too.

Plus, complicating my situation were two unrelated, small, healing wounds on the periphery of the rash from an injury a few weeks prior.

“Open wounds can often be a portal where bacteria can enter the skin,” says Dr. Martin.

As a result, cellulitis can develop—and my rash appeared to be a pretty strong candidate for it.

So I left the office with a diagnosis for cellulitis, but also with orders for blood work to make sure nothing else was going on, either.

Real fact #3: Diagnosing Lyme disease can be tricky.

One of the tests on the order was for Lyme disease.

Diagnosing Lyme isn’t exactly clear cut, so doctors use a two-tiered approach to nail it down: The first is called the enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay test, or the ELISA test.

This test shows how many total antibodies you have for the pathogen in question, which in Lyme’s case, is a kind of bacterium called Borrelia burgdorferi, says John Aucott, M.D., the director of the Johns Hopkins Lyme Disease Clinical Research Center.

But it’s not perfect—it can produce a good chunk of false positives, meaning people show antibodies even if they are not infected with Lyme, he says. (This can be due to other infections like mono, bacterial stomach ulcers, or even autoimmune disorders like lupus.)

So when my ELISA test came back positive, doctors had to take one more step before confirming a Lyme diagnosis: the Western Blot test.

This test looks at the antibodies your body makes to several different specific proteins of the Lyme bacteria. It weeds out most of the false positives seen with the ELISA test.

The Western Blot detects two classes of antibodies: the IgM, which appear soon after infection, and the IgG, which can take up to 4 to 6 weeks to show up.

My Western Blot came back positive for antibodies in the IgM class—showing that my infection probably occurred within a four-week period before the test, says Dr. Aucott.

Real fact #4: The treatment for Lyme can make you feel worse than the disease.

Real fact #4: The treatment for Lyme can make you feel worse than the disease.

My doctor prescribed the standard treatment for Lyme disease caught early—100 milligrams (mg) of an antibiotic called doxycycline twice a day for 21 days.

I took my first dosage the night I was diagnosed. The next morning, I felt way worse than before.

My head throbbed, my stomach cramped, and my fatigue increased.

I remember consciously trying to avoid turning my head: It seemed to take way too much effort, and I also knew it would end up creating a pounding so sharp it’d leave me sick to my stomach.

It wasn’t that my Lyme was getting worse: I learned that my symptoms might have been caused by something called the Jarisch-Herxheimer reaction, a condition which occurs in roughly 15 percent of people after taking their first antibiotic dosage for Lyme treatment, says Dr. Aucott.

It actually can be considered a good thing, since it shows your meds are working.

When the antibiotics begin to kill off the Lyme bacteria, the dead bacteria release proteins that trigger inflammation, says Dr. Aucott.

As a result, you can experience new or worsening symptoms, like fever, chills, or achiness. The reaction only lasts a few days, he says.

In my case, the first two days after I started the doxycycline were definitely the worst: Afterwards, my symptoms—minus the rash, which disappeared within a couple days of treatment— returned to pre-antibiotic levels.

Real fact #5: The fatigue with Lyme disease is no joke.

Real fact #5: The fatigue with Lyme disease is no joke.

This past spring and early summer, I’d been on a fitness upswing: I was lifting 5 or 6 days a week—continually adding heavier weight to my workouts—and running at least 3 to 4 miles almost every day.

Then, by mid-July—right around the time I suspect I was bitten—I hit a wall.

Running one mile felt like 5. Weights I could easily press by myself the week before were suddenly at risk of smashing me in the face.

I even remember consciously choosing to do one exercise over another because it used a bench—and I could lie down on it after I was done for my “rest.”

I figured I might just have been pushing my body too hard, so I dialed it back a little to give it time to recover.

But when my Lyme test came back positive, it was actually a relief to know my body was stalling for a reason.

I wasn’t alone: The exhaustion you can feel with Lyme is often much more severe than with other fatigue-causing illnesses, says Dr. Aucott. And it could come on well before the Lyme rash shows up.

The gym wasn’t the only place I felt it: My transitional stand-up desk at work remained in the sitting position. I cleared my weekends so I could fit in long naps.

Female Weight Chart: This Is How Much You Should Weigh According To Your Age, Body Shape And Height

#2

While we have seen extremes on both ends of the spectrum – some women dieting down to skin and bone and other women taking pride with being excessively heavy – it turns out finding a stable middle ground which is optimal in comparison to one’s height, muscle and bone mass, is indeed ideal.

#3

While there are different types of weight charts out there, this one has been created by specialists and takes into account a woman’s body type. Many other weight charts have a “one size fits all” model which completely ignores the fact that women of the same height have different body frames.

This chart does not support the notion that the overly thin models we see in magazines have healthy weight. The chart takes into effect height, and most importantly, body shape.

Check out the chart and see where you stand and what your ideal weight should be.
