A Decade of Determination Pays Off

This will be my shortest blog. After a decade on The Specific Carbohydrate Diet, I am once again able to eat occasional moderate amounts of restricted sweets and starches with no apparent consequences. Since my celiac disease was never formally diagnosed, I cannot claim it is curable or was cured but it is now six weeks since I resumed eating foods I have not had in ten years as well as foods purported to be cross reactive with Latex Allergy. Ultimately I decided to be very cautious and not push the envelope since the SCD has been
enjoyable and a great asset to regaining some resistance to chemical sensitivities. I also developed a real enjoyment of SCD recipes and still prefer many of them over their conventional counterparts. I am not suggesting others digress from their gluten free diets, just reporting what has happened in my case so far. Scott has suggested I monitor my maintenance with periodic blood tests for anti bodies and I plan to investigate that as it makes good sense. Finally, I do feel it is easier to maintain a proper weight with SCD although it is not a weight control program.

As always, Celiac.com welcomes your comments (see below).

Carol,
Thanks for sharing your success story with the SCD. Many go gluten free and have a hard time healing because they do not consider other foods. Your story will hopefully be a window for others to get healthier.
All the best,
Dr. O
