    Read this article today and it was very interesting. I especially found the chart to be helpful, as well as mind boggling... GOOD nutrition is so important to fertility, why aren't medical doctors promoting this more for those of us struggling? And I'm not talking about approving and pushing the government approved way of eating... I'm talking about individual-specific diets based on our test results, because each of us is different!

    Anyways, for what it's worth, just something to consider....

    Thanks! I've found a few medical journals that also say the same thing. Here are some articles:

    http://www.thelancet.com/journals/la...572-6/abstract

    I'm going to be asking my GP for a test for it when I have my physical in a few weeks, just out of curiousity. I mean, we pretty well know what my issues our now (the best ovary is on the side with the blocked tube) but you never know, it might help.

    I hope I'm not stepping on any toes by being a lurkey mclurker...

    but I got pregnant after a month on the paleo diet, so all grains were eliminated. I've tested positive for gluten allergy on an ALCAT test (used by naturopaths, taken with a grain of salt by MDs) but not on other lab testing. Just a piece of circumstantial evidence to throw into the ring.

    Congratulations on your new baby and thanks for chiming in!

    What is an ALCAT test?

    Geez, I feel totally unqualified to explain what an ALCAT entails...its all WAY above my head. My basic understanding is when you go to an MD allergy specialist, the skin-prick test only tests a single, acute reaction. The ALCAT is much more sensitive in that it picks up on sensitivies and delayed reactions by looking at several types of reactions, including non-immune and delayed.

    HTH a little! And THANK YOU
