    1. BRob66 added a post in a topic Hi New To Forum And Have Questions   

      Have you considered taking her to a naturopathic doctor and maybe trying a saliva test for celiacs? I have been diagnosed this way and was off gluten for 2 months before the test. I tested extremely high positive and the naturopath says he sees alot of false responses from the blood work and the endoscopy you have to be on gluten for as well. Maybe something to consider. I would try her on a gluten free diet and see. As well she could be reacting to soy,dairy,citrus and eggs. These are all things i also have to be off of with the celiacs. Good luck!!!!!

      Hi i am a new member as well. Thought I would share with you what I've read about spirits. Vodka is started with grain mash,,so is not safe. Potato vodka is okay and a brand called belvedere, I have tried. Rye,whisky ,,all grains and wheats. Rum is from cane sugar and is okay,,as is tequila,most wines if not fortified are good as well,and i hear vermouthand cognac and sake is also okay.

      Does Anyone Else Use Benadryl To Treat Reactions?
      Recently i was using up to a bottle of benadryl every other day,until I went completely gluten free,,soy free,milk and dairy free and a host of other things. Is this normal and do we have to carry it with us at all times?

    11. BRob66 added a post in a topic Day 2 Gluten Free-- General Questions   

      I was also misdiagnosed years ago, I am currently seeing a naturopathic doctor and he is trying to heal the villi in the small intestine which could take 6months to a year. I was just diagnosed with celiacs but have been gluten-free for about two months. It took about a month for my muscle/joint pain to go away,,and i thought I was just getting old...LOL. the last couple of weeks have been great and i was living on Benadryl. i would seek out a good naturopathic doc and maybe see what other foods you may be reacting to. i am soyfreee,egg free and dairy free as well as a host of other things right now because of the damage to the small bowel. I hope u feel better real soon.

    13. BRob66 added a post in a topic Blood Test And Endoscopy   

      My naturopathic doctor did a blood test,,allergy testing and a saliva test. In my opinion medical doctors don't test for this enough. they usually do the small bowel biopsy,,but I have been told that if you are off gluten/wheat for a while the tests can be negative and conflicting. In the past I was diagnosed with IBS,depression,and environmental allergies. also the villi in the small bowel can be damaged and you can have other food related reactions. i am currently soy free,egg free and dairy free. I also hear some of the syptoms are like crohn's disease and that if untreated celiacs can cause crohns. good luck
