    51 until January. Been away for a couple of years, but fully back to it. Quick question - didn't the food tracker calculate percentages of fat/carbs/protein and that you could set up a custom diet plan, say for Keto? I don't see that anymore. Did they get rid of that?

    You can look up myfitnesspal tutorials on youtube.

    Hey all..been away for a bit..fell off the wagon...and .some health stuff going on...my eyes, after wearing contact for 20+ years, have seemed to reject the concept...and Ive been dealign with swollen itchy eyes for the past few months
    Ive been on antibiotics 3x, drops and now topical steroid ....fun fun...

    Ive had to invest in some new glasses and hopefully this will resolve itself..but when I stop the meds the swelling comes back..anyone deal with something similar?

    annoying but I'm back to tracking and getting my act together...
    hope everyone is well

    What does the Dr. think is the reason?

    Hi Kim
    What does the Dr. think is the reason?

    Hi....at first the Dr said it had nothing to do with my contacts...but didn't offer any input as to what it was/what was going this reaction.....the issue was only affecting one eye for weeks..but when it started affecting both eyes, the Dr chalked it up to allergies...
    Ive never had issues with allergies or eye problems before..ever..ive been taking Claritin daily since this started
    out of desperation I stopped wearing my contacts, even though I was told I didn't have to, and the issue seemed to get better...so for now I'm going to try to stop the meds and continue wearing glasses and hope my eyes don't swell again..sigh

    I guess out bodies change as we get older....not for the better..LOL

    Hi again.
    I used to be a us army flight medic. One of the things that we as flight crew could not use was visine and epinephrine and pseudeo ephedrine due to an effect called rebound. When the meds wear off the swelling would return and what was advised to us, was not to stop all of a sudden, but to taper off.
    Maybe this helps.
    Take care and good luck.

    Yup....I tapered the steroid...3x a day for a week, 2x a day than down to once a day for a week...but the swelling comes back each time :(
    Thanks for your insight though... Im hoping this time it doesn't return....
    Next step might be to an allergist
