I would like to edit a very old post of mine, several in fact, to remove some personal information. Is this possible? I have gone over the thread and can not find a edit button. Is there a time limit or am I missing something. Thank you.
so ,I want to get this straight...you have 4 daughters? One not tested, one tested positive for celiac but you don't know her genes, and two more listed here.
after you clarify, I'll repost, but for now....
yes daughter #3 has a strong possibility of having the complete celiac gene.
You have at least half, hubby has half, daughter # 2 has half
the half genes can cause gluten intolerance and celiac, though not at as high of a rate as the complete gene.
my daughter was get 3 kinds of mouth sores
cold sores, sores in the corner of her mouth, and white sores in her mouth
the PA said the ones in the corner are from a bacteria/ yeast combo
the white sores in the mouth are associated with celiac, which my daughter does not have
the cold sores are herpes. I thought her sores may have been from gluten, I put her on a gluten free trial diet. I ended up getting her sore swabbed and it was positive for herpes.
Yesterday was my one year anniversary of being 100% gluten free!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I feel pretty good, so much better than I did for years. Even when I didn't eat wheat I still had bad symptoms at times. I wish I had gone gluten free years ago.
I don't feel poisoned
I don't have weird visual effects where everything would seem further than it really was
I don't get brain fog
I am not dizzy all the time
my blood pressure went up to normal
my skin doesn't itch constantly everywhere
I don't have a rash on my hands anymore(that had started to spread)
I don't have chronic constipation
I don't have hemoroid pain
I don't feel like vomiting when I have to go to the bathroom
my facial skin doesn't break out nearly as much
my hormones have stablized- I have a bigger libido and am far less moody, PMS is greatly diminished
I am less likely to get irratated and bitter
my blood sugar is stablized- I don't go from fine to starving in a second, I progress to hungry
When I am hungry, I don't feel like I will vomit
I can't believe how many facets of my life have been touched by this
sometimes I have a bad day, or a symptom, but it is not the norm for me anymore
I still use bananas as medicine, I would have died without them long ago
When people find out that I can't eat gluten and they say how that's too bad or say,
NO, what is too bad is that I was undiagnosed and sick for so many years, since I was a child. I have no problem not eating gluten because I never want to go back to how I was before
I don't remember clearly, but it started to go away within the first week. I went from itching ALL the time to barely itching. I do still itch more than most people probably, but they may be just my make up. I have sensitive skin in general- very fair, sunburn easily, react to chemical soaps, etc.
I also itch if I eat too much sugar, like around halloween.
The only other food problem I know for sure I have is with nuts, but they give me D, not itching.
several people I know felt triggered by stomach bugs,
My next door neighbor is in his late 60s and just got diagnosed. His only real compaint for years was heartburn, then he got shoulder surgery. About 22 months later, he was horribly ill. He believes the surgery triggered him, but then it took a little while to get deathly ill from it.
Also, some of us Knew we needed to avoid wheat, so we did, but still ate other glutens. Then it gets real confusing.
plus, everyone has a unique immune system. Some may go full throttle right away,whereas some my slowly build up to a crescendo.
