I am: 37 year old female, two children, 175 lbs, 5'9, computer job
I eat (in order of duration): gluten-free (2010); grain-free (2010); 80% dairy free (2011); 100% caffeine free (since Oc 2011); 90% FODMAPS-free (since Nov 2011)
I move: not nearly enough. I'm more active in summer (biking/hiking); weight training and elliptical sprints 2-3 x per week in winter but this depends on the usual excuses: work deadlines, family chaos and sheer laziness on my part.
I struggle with: my weight, but at the moment, mostly with my bowels and IBS-like symptoms (but I'll spare you the gory details)
This blood work is my physician's second stage of inquiry to try and figure out what is wrong with me (Stage one indicates no uterine/ovarian cancer so that's a relief!). I don't have a science background so these results mean little to me.
Hack and translation would be much appreciated!
