    • How do you know what's causing what?
      Thanks for the replies guys. I'm not having the endoscopy, or at least I'm not doing the gluten challenge. The wait for an initial consultation with gastro on the NHS where I live is 18 weeks and then another wait after that for the scope. I was so ill and had been off sick so often I was at risk of losing my job so decided to go gluten-free and just stick with it.  Thanks for all the info on other intolerances. I'm guessing lactose is not doing me any favours at the moment. Will defi start keeping a food diary. Thankfully have felt a bit better today - just get scared when the dizziness and stuff starts up again (like yesterday) as it makes me too ill to work or drive. I'm thinking about reintroducing meat at some point when things settle but in the mean time I'm just trying to stick with whole foods (not easy though!). Oh and am on a super high dose of vit d from the doc so hopefully that'll kick in soon! 
    • Blood results - odd
      Hi Kyz My blood ferritin was the same as yours.   I was put on heavy duty stuff by the doctor but it hurt so bad, I got terrible diarrhea (mind you, I was still an undiagnosed celiac at the time) and I won't tell you what other horrid symptoms. Once I was diagnosed another GP put me on ferrous gluconate which you can get over the counter.  She told me to take one tablet with water an hour before I ate breakfast.   It worked a treat - much gentler and a little slower to work than the heavy duty stuff, she said, but my stomach didn't hurt anymore.  Floradix is also pretty good stuff. I'm sorry if you have tried all this and it didn't work but thought I might just mention it in case. Now my haemoglobin is high normal they won't let me supplement - seems you just can't win! All the best Cristiana
    • Blood results - odd
      Hi. Thanks for the reassurance  re B12. You can get over the counter iron in the UK but it's a much weaker form than you can get on pescription and I have never tolerated tablets well, when I was pregnant I had injections and they helped enormously so that's what I was hoping for from my GP- but alas he did not think my symptoms were related to anaemia, he thought infection. But my bloods have come back today with no increased CRP and fine white cell count so I am almost certain it's anemia and B12 deficiency ( I don't supplement this, and think my body can't absorb it so releases it back in to my blood). I was expecting my B12 to be low which is why I was so suprised at the blood reading. either that or my gut has a bizarre ability to hold high B12 and low iron which would be unusal.  I will look at getting my Vit D checked, however have been only stopped taking it about 6 months ago after finishing breastfeeding.  I am hoping to speak to my consultant who can fax my GP and I can get an injection soon, in the meantime I am taking liquid iron ( spartone ) with vit c as it's easier on the tummy. its reassuring to know that odd B12 levels can be seen in celiac as I was initially worried having googled high B12.

      I haven't found one worth eating. I would like to know the answer. I just eat my burgers bunless. But I haven't found any loaf bread that I like either.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
