jeremytodd added a topic in Celiac Meeting RoomNew Celiac And Need Some Input On Diet/vitaminsHello, I will try to keep this short. I am 31 yr male. I have all my life suffered in pain, weight loss and gain, muscle/joint pain, fatigue etc. I had my gallbladder removed and thought yeah! that was it. Still had pain and kept going to my doctor who then refereed me to a specialist. I failed the biopsy, and the basic blood work. I did test positive on the genetic test. I had kept a diary of foods and symptoms between my last two visits with the specialist (which confirmed to him that the genetic test was 100%). I do still live at home because I have been unable at times to keep a job because of the erratic off and on again symptoms. I have been pretty much my whole life just pushed around by doctors until recent.
This would be my second day at trying to eat right. I would like to know what vitamins and supplements I should be taking now and all the time. I have been getting very faint and dizzy with the new diet (would guess this is normal?) I would like to know if there is a good starter guide to what food products I am able to buy. I have a Sprouts, Frys Food, Safeway, Albertsons, Fresh-N-Easy close by to where I live. I used to live near a Whole Foods but not sure if any around me. So from the list of grocers what would be the best produce and off the shelf products I could buy? I did buy a few items to get me started but wow! what a change in taste.
Also I do have flaky skin around the eyes and ears. Have been diagnosed with kidney stones and elevated levels in the liver and recently a few oddities of the pancreas (this is what made my PCP refer me to specialist)
Thank you for any input and help given.
This I am sure will be a very hard start to a new way of living.
