  1. I started seeing a new ND for my hypothyroidism (Hashimoto's) and she mentioned that I ought to get the IgG food intolerance testing done since my 5 year old daughter was off the charts for dairy and eggs. I got my results a few weeks ago and holy moly I reacted to TWENTY-FIVE foods! My worst were all the gluten products (oats, rye, barley, wheat, etc). I also was high for diary, eggs and yeast. So I started a total elimination diet of yeast, eggs, dairy and gluten. After 10 days I was down nine pounds and feeling much better. Last week I had HALF of a vegan cookie (so no eggs or dairy) and within an hour I was sick as a dog, and it lasted 3 hours. It gradually wore off and I felt fine. Well yesterday I had about 1 Tbsp of dairy creamer in my coffee. I thought since it was such a small amount I'd been no. I got sick again! This time it was a lot more immediate and lasted MUCH longer (a day and a half). I'm just feeling better this afternoon. So I'm not sure if I need to proceed with testing for Celiac disease? I've always had low iron/ferritin levels (my ferritin has been as low as FIVE) and B 12 levels. I'm on B12 shots and take an RX for iron that I take with Vit. C. I know that the testing may not be accurate if I've been eating gluten free for awhile. Correct? My ND wants me to do testing for leaky gut but not sure it's even necessary. I know what foods bother me now, so I don't eat them. My diet consists of fruit, veggies, fish, chicken, pork and beef. So I just don't know what to do next? I feel like if I have a Celiac disease dx then people will take things more seriously. Thanks for all your help! I look forward to learning my way around this forum. Yogatwinmom
