@retiredteacher I know how diligent you are. This must be terribly frustrating. I will be interested in hearing what your endo says.

@merpreb Thanks, I will look into this. Some lactose intolerant people can eat goat cheese but unfortunately, not me.

@merpreb I am not aware of imitation goat cheeses. I have found lactose, real dairy yogurt, cream cheese, and half and half at Whole Foods. There is no lactose, or just a trace, in hard cheeses so I content myself with them but goat cheese in a salad was soooo good. I went to goat cheese because it has about half the sodium of other cheeses and then I got sort of addicted.

@musicman2019 I was on tacrolimus after transplant and my creatinine started climbing. I was told to drink 80 – 100 ounces of fluid a day but that did not help much so they switched me to sirolimus. I still drink all of that water but I no longer have a creatinine problem. They really keep track of me, very thoroughly.
I also started having bad diarrhea while on tacrolimus. I was hoping with the change to sirolimus that would go away but it did not. I have come to realize that I now am lactose intolerant. I believe the tacrolimus must have triggered that since it happened right after starting tacrolimus.

@merpreb One of the reasons I like to buy my fish at Whole Foods is that they label them with exactly how they have been produced. It's a good guide. I also think they sell their fish for fewer days than the local supermarkets. I always ask when the fish came in. Some of the local stores are still selling it at five days old. I will only buy fish that came in on that day or the day before. I am very finicky.

That recipe sounds delicious but I would have to leave out the goat cheese. I miss goat cheese so much.

@lioness I only buy wild salmon, and now I only buy it at Whole Foods because they will take the bones out for me. Last week we had sockeye and it was delicious.

@artscaping They really are very special little companions, so loving. I still think of him a lot, and it was 2006 when I had to put him to sleep. My daughter was the person who wanted a dog so together we scoured breed books and decided on a Cavalier. She was in 5th grade at the time, my son was in 6th, so lots of kids in and out of the house. I wanted a very non-threatening dog and he surely was.

@retiredteacher The only thing I have changed is that I am watching my carbs more carefully. I do not test much, never more than once a day. I may need to start doing that. Hopefully, things will even out before my endo appointment at the end of September. I really do not want to have to take any more pills.
You are under far more stress than I am though. I definitely think that, along with the lack of exercise, are the causes of your problem.
