Clash With The Doctors On My Colonoscopy Prep

colonoscopy, natural medicine and 1 more...

I am normally a very shy person just wanting to blend in and willingly do what I am asked. However, when doctors told me that I needed to drink high fructose corn syrup, corn in my medications, and plastic (Mira lax) they had overstepped their power and I felt threatened. I swell up if I smell corn, so I knew I couldn't eat it. They dismissed my concern a...

3 Weeks Today

Posted by JesikaBeth in JesikaBeth's Blog, 22 July 2014 - - - - - - · 1,164 views

Today marks 3 weeks since going gluten free. Overall I feel a world better!!! At first, I was sleeping really good (like the first week and a half), but for the last week and a half or so, I've had horrible insomnia. Now, I am a chronic insomniac anyway, but I was rather enjoying that week and a half of restful sleep <_<

Not sure if it's a glute...

Hope For A Less Challenging Gluten Challenge

Posted by jebby in The Patient Celiac , 20 July 2014 - - - - - - · 1,395 views

The current “gold standard” tests for celiac disease include testing for celiac antibodies in patients’ blood and performing an endoscopy to obtain small bowel biopsies. In order for these tests to be accurate, one has to be eating gluten up until the time of testing. If a patient is already on the gluten-free diet when these tests are done, the diagnosi...

Stay At Home Mom

W ith two kids to tend to, glutened by who knows what, and allergic to other stuff, I am finding it hard to survive. At night I have horrible nightmares, have had since I was a kid, but the glutening makes them worse. Also having heart palpitations, tightening, lethargy. Very tired all over as well. The last few weeks the glutening has damaged my gut and...

The Discovery Of My Gluten Allergy

Posted by cru423 in The Gluten Synapse , 27 May 2014 - - - - - - · 2,993 views
gluten

When I discovered my allergy to gluten, I initially felt very dumb. How could anyone be expected to understand that the pain and anxiety I felt inside were really related to an allergic reaction, when the reaction was not clearly related to the intake of a specific substance? The symptoms I felt: esophageal reflux, "ulcerative colitis", anxiety attacks, i...

I'm Back!:)

Well, I guess I haven't been on since around last Fall or sometime around there. Either way, it's been a while! I just finished my Sophomore year of college with a 4.0 :rolleyes: and am finally back home for the summer! Some of you may have heard about us on the news recently actually... we had quite a lot of rain a few weeks ago that basically destroyed...

Week 2: Monday, May 5, 2014

Okay so, where do I begin. On Tuesday, April 29, I went to see my naturopathic doctor for the first time. We talked about skin issues and food sensitivities, and he mentioned that a patient of his had rosacea and was tested for food sensitivities. After being tested positive for yeast/wheat sensitivities and giving both up..his rosacea cleared up. I didn'...

Wonderful Friends

Posted by KCG91 in KCG91's Blog, 21 April 2014 - - - - - - · 935 views

The last few weeks have been a bit fraught over here with uni finals and The Job Hunt beginning, to the point where I ducked out of a dinner and night out with old school friends on Saturday because I didn't want to join in with the chat about uni and jobhunting, or to once again grill waiters in front of my friends. My friends are fine about it, I just h...

Celiac Blood Work Negative. Should I Have Endoscopy Done?

Posted by Mia'smommy in Mia'smommy's Blog, 28 March 2014 - - - - - - · 819 views

I was diagnosed with IBS when I was 12 years old. I am 37 now. I have what I call "IBS episodes" of diarrhea, SEVERE pain, sweating, chills when I eat certain foods. I can't pinpoint it to wheat alone. It doesn't happen all the time, but I suffer from these "episodes" at least 4-5 times a week.

My 4-year-old was just diagnosed with Celiac. She was asympt...

1 Year Ago

Posted by itsmebiancap in March On, 04 March 2014 - - - - - - · 1,195 views

Ok so here goes..

A year ago I was having all these problems with my health. I used to be very fit and active. However, I had to relocate and became very stagnant and caught up with my situation and improving it. I started to eat 'on the go' which I had not really done so much previously. After about two years of eating mostly fast food, with no exercise...

I Went Camping For The 2Nd Time Since Diagnosis

Posted by moosemalibu in moosemalibu's Blog, 11 February 2014 - - - - - - · 939 views

Well... my boyfriend is a HUGE 4x4 truck enthusiast. He has 2 rigs that are specifically for off roading purposes. Consequently we take these rigs to remote places and drive over lots of rocky terrain. He has rock crawler and a prerunner or something like that. It is very confusing keeping all the classes straight. It's his hobby that I support but not qu...

Not Eaten Gluten In 4 Years . . . Is It Safe To Now Eat Gluten Again

Posted by Posterboy in Posterboy's Blog, 28 January 2014 - - - - - - · 542 views

I was/had been gluten free for 4 years.

I have heard that (maybe urban myth) that gluten doesn't bother me anymore.

How do I know gluten is bothering me again before it is too late?

I am still regular even when I ingest gluten accidently or can't resist cheating.

All I can think is my gluten allergy has gone away.

Is this possible? Or am I just pres...

What Do I Do Next?

Posted by alfgarrie in alfgarrie's Blog, 17 January 2014 - - - - - - · 956 views

Ok, so this is all new to me. I have never done a blog, or dealt w/ Celiac til just recently. Never have I worried about the food I have put in my body, and didn't give much thought to what my kids had either. My middle child showed signs of having an allergy. We took him and had him tested, and the only thing that showed up was a mild wheat allergy....

I Just Want To Scream

Posted by Porcelina in Gluten Challenge, 10 December 2013 - - - - - - · 1,225 views

Test came back 'normal' even though IGG and IGA was in the normal/high range after a 7 week test (previously I was almost gluten free for a year). My ALP was normal/low.

To even speak to a specialist for a biopsy would take at least 6 months. There is no way I can continue with this challenge as depression has set in, my skin rashes on my legs looks horr...

I have read that you need to take vitamins if going gluten...
