shery added a topic in Celiac Disease - Post Diagnosis, Recovery/Treatment(s)ConstipationI was diagnosed with inability to tolerate gluten (as well as dairy, eggs and yeast) from entero lab last week. I have been misdiagnosed for 58 years. Yes, it would have been very helpful if a doctor had caught it earlier and I might not have had so many years of health problems as well as frustrations at being told that I was hypochondriac or needed stress management meds or something. However, blaming the doctors doesn't really help. To be fair, the symptoms are vague, and with the brain fog that often goes with it, I can understand the doctors confusion. Over the years, I was aware that something I was eating was causing me a problem, and with an elimination diet many years ago I knew that wheat was a problem and tried to limit it. Eliminating wheat and most gluten has helped, but the entero lab test showed that I am still getting gluten and I have malabsorption.
I have been being very careful for the past week (since getting the diagnosis) and am avoiding all gluten, and also egg, dairy and yeast. The strange thing to me is that instead of the constipation I used to be plagued with, I now have almost the opposite! Has anyone else has this experience?
