K so Ive been exhausted for like 2 months. The only thing ive changed is my ADD medication (Teva-Methylphenidate ER-C)
the ingredients are :methylphenidate hydrochloride 54 mg. Nonmedicinal ingredients: hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, lactose monohydrate, microcrystalline cellulose, polyvinyl alcohol- polyethylene glycol copolymer and colloidal silica, simethicone, stearic acid, iron oxide yellow, iron oxide red, polyethylene glycol, and titanium dioxide.
Ive been on google for over an hour and cant find anything other than the non generic form is on the safe list (Concerta)
Does anyone have a link to share or some insight on this.
It takes time to heal. Your illness did not happen overnight, therefore neither will your recovery and healing.
That said, could there be any cross-contamination to where you are actually ingesting gluten? This can happen in restaurants, at friend's homes even if they say they cooked you something gluten free, and at home if your household is not 100% gluten free.
I have the same question as Karen.
I suggest you ask your doctor to explain those tests and what he believes could be the cause. I would think finding the cause, whether it be celiac, lactose intolerance or something else, would indicate your next treatment step.
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.
