Is it possible for you to obtain a referral to a nutritionist right away? There are all sorts of diets to follow and supplements to take for gut inflammation but all that may be different if you are pregnant. A nutritionist can be of great help to you in this situation. People usually follow lactose free, low carb, and gluten free diets for inflammation but that may not be feasible for a pregnant woman.

Hello, @alfanny, this is @mamacita, from the Adults On The Spectrum page. I was very interested in your situation and just wanted to pop in and give you just a good word or two, of encouragement. I personally have been on the Lazy Keto diet for over a year. I am Diabetic and also have IBS and Diverticulitis. When I am faithful to my low carb diet, I have no stomach or gut issues whatsoever. My A1C went down to 6.2 and my blood sugars are normal. I have plenty of energy to do what I need to do. I take no medication at all for my stomach or gut issues. I have the medication, I just simply do not need it if I eat what I know is good for me.

My young friend has a one year old, a five year old, and an eight year old. She has extremely high insulin levels, and has been told by her physician that she should eat like a diabetic does. She follows a looser, less strict version of the Keto Diet. Throughout her pregnancy, she continued the Keto Diet with rare "cheats." She did not gain a ton of weight and was carefully monitored by her OB/Gyn. Most Nutritionists are connected with the ADA and they are hooked on fifty carbs per meal. Fifty carbs per meal may work for some people but to me they were a death sentence. There was no way I could keep my blood sugars down, and worst of all, the pain in my abdomen never went away. I think that a good nutritionist at this point would be someone who recommends lots of vegetables, a little bit of fruit here and there, a small handful of nuts/seeds, and protein from a reputable source. Organic if you can get it.

Grains seem to be the culprit in body inflammation. Maybe not for everyone, but for me, definitely. Many people with problems eating typical grains can manage with a couple of slices of something called Ezekiel Bread. It is made from sprouted grains. Definitely keep a food record, to try and track what seems to bother you. Find the medical/nutritional help you need and work with them on the best diet you can manage. Drink lots of pure water and do your best. You have everything going for you! You probably won't have all your questions answered immediately. Good things take time. I have confidence in you!
