Sara_UK added a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsGot Glutened - It's So True!Hello!
I've been gluten, dairy and egg free now for a couple of months (I think) - tested some chocolate blamange on holiday, and know that dairy def gives me D now! So now I believe that.
Was thinking about trying some bread, just to see if anything happened to me - but last night, for yesterday lunch, and night before, I'd done a stir fry with plum and hoi sin sauce (totally forgetting for the first time to read the ingredients!).
all day yesterday my stomach was making horrific noises (am known for my loud tummy rumblings!), which I realised it'd not done for quite a while. then after eating last night i was just so bloated and in a bit of pain, and in a foul foul foul irritable mood! thought it was just me being a cow, and eating too much, then read the hoi sin sauce and found it had wheat flour in it!
weird that some things seem to have cleared up that i didn't really notice as being a problem (loud stomach noises), until I get them again!
so now I also believe that wheat gluteny stuff is def a problem! can't believe i felt like i did last night for ages before i did the blood test and just thought it was normal!

Sara_UK added a topic in Other Food Intolerance and Leaky Gut IssuesHiHi
I only just saw this thread down at the bottom of the list!
I'm new (though have beenr eading and posting a bit higher up the board), so I'll just recap
Have had D, migraines, bloating, gas, acne etc for ages and bought the York IgG Elisa test a year or so ago, but only just got around to taking it.
Apparantly I have higher than normal amounts of things that came up - scoring 1-4 (4 being highest it can be):
Egg white 2
Egg yolk 1
Molluscs mix (!) 1
sesame seed 1
and 15 that came up in the moderate reaction so I should rotate those
I spoke to a nutritionist and she said to cut out dairy and gluten definitely, and eggs - which I have done for 3 or 4 weeks now (I hope! not used to all the things they can be found in yet). Another nutritionist said I should also cut out yeast, as that might be one of the main probs, even though it only came up as a 1..which I did for a while, then forgot and had a wine sauce..so leaving that one for now.
They both mentioned that I might have a leaky gut (also nearly died from spontaneous peritionitis, so was on strong antibiotics after my op - not sure if I think that the bacteria got across through my leaky gut, or that the antibiotics caused some inbalance, which lead to the leaky gut), so I've got some good probiotics too (just got them yesterday)
Anyway, enough of the rambling..now I'll read this whole new set of posts I've just discovered!

Sara_UK added a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsFood/symptom DiaryHi
I've been meaning to start a food diary since I got my IgG results back a few weeks ago, and never got round to it.
I was just wondering what symptoms you put down, how often you assess yourself through the day etc, how you know if something is just normal, or may be due to food?
I still feel a total fraud for even trying this (Had the IgG antibody test, and wheat/gluten and dairy came up really high, amongst about 10 other things - someone mentioned leaky gut?) - cos I don't have anything like what you lot have (thankfully). I'm 26 - if I did not do the gluten thing, is this something tht would just get worse (I have no probs with excluding gluten at the moment - apart from bread! Seem to have got over most of my cravings)? Like someone else posted, I just thought I was someone who just had lots of gas, random D, mildish depression, horrible migraines etc, and I'm having a hard time convincing myself that I'm not just making this gluten thing up in a hypochondriac kinda way! I know what the test results said etc, so I;m going to do it (so far cutting out wheat/gluten/dairy and eggs - was also doing yeast as that came up, then forgot and had beef in red wine - was the only thing on there anyway without any of the other things in them!).
Seem to have eaten out a lot lately (unusually so!) and it's been driving me mad trying to find something I can have!
So yeah, after all the rambling - what type of things should i put in my diary. Migraines, obvious. Do you gauge the softness of you poo?! random tummy pains? acne? how happy you feel (felt bizarrely happy last few days, putting it down to having my own music on in the lab where I work, quite loud as noone else is here!)
Sorry for the ramble
