Gluten Free Diet Relieved My PCOS Symptoms
by Paola B.
I was never tested for PCOS but I strongly believe I have it. A couple of weeks ago, after eating a high carbohydrate meal (wheat) I felt terrible. Being an Italian, I know that pasta dishes with a salad are well tolerated by almost anyone. Thus, I thought that either I have a problem with carbs in general, or only with wheat products. I tested this hypothesis and noticed that within 4 days of leaving wheat (but still eating carbs such as rice) I felt much better.
That was about a month ago, and since then I have eaten only a gluten free diet. And my life has changed. Before I used to spend my weekends at home to recover energy from the working week. Now I go out with friends and spend more time for the house and myself. I also noticed that my concentration is much better, and, true miracle, I have been able to put myself again on a diet, which I haven't been able to follow in years.
Hopefully, I will also be able to stay on the diet this time. Could it be that gluten intolerance is a fact with people with PCOS?
Thank you very much for the support you website is giving to people with PCOS.
