86: What's the Underlying Issue?

Remember Jim Chialtas from Episode 75? If you haven't heard it yet, I recommend you check it out! Today, we welcome back Jim to dive a little deeper into Functional Blood Chemistry, as well as review some of my personal blood and saliva tests that may have revealed something I would've never expected. After my last podcast with Jim, I had a consultation with him and mentioned that one of my biggest physical set-backs was EXTREME bloating combined with eczema.

I don't like to abuse the word "suffering", but I'm telling you; most days I would look like I was 4 months pregnant, and I would scratch my legs so bad in my sleep, I'd wake up with wounds. I don't eat meat, don't eat dairy, I've recently cut out gluten and I eat mostly whole foods. I was really confused as to what it could be.

The blood test showed I was low in iron, but there were other results that I didn't quite understand. The funny thing is, I track my macro and micronutrients, and get PLENTY of iron in my diet! So, what's the underlying issue? My first thought was that I may have developed Celiac, which could be preventing my intestines from absorbing the iron. So, I started eliminating gluten. But, it seems I may have been wrong!

Curious what may have happened? I think you may be as surprised as I was!
