I'm nick and this is my first post to this message board. I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease over 3 years ago. After years of people thinking I was faking and pure intestinal torture, i adopted the diet and finally began feeling relief. Granted, I do make an occasional mistake(I was taking Maalox up to this year!) but overall I am much better than I originally was.
My current progress is that I have roughly 3 days wear I feel excellent and 3 days were a feel not so good. All I consume are Gluten-free foods and I was just wondering is it "normal" to never feel perfect?
I have some brief questions, if that is okay?
1. What symptoms did you have with Celiac? I had numerous symptoms (sexual, strep, fatique) that weren't clearly defined under any celiac-symptom guide.
2. I consume rice crackers that say they are gluten free on the package, but also say they may contain wheat due to cross contination in little print. Should I stay away? I also consume Gorilla Munch cereal and that says it may contain traces of peanuts and I have been tasting peanuts my last four boxes
3. Has anyone hear ever gone to see Dr. Peter Green in NY? I saw him a few months ago(as a belated second opinion)and I thought he was really unprofessional. At first he said that I didn't have Celiac Disease without looking at any tests. He also prescribed an anti-depressant just because he thought it was all in my head. However once he the test came back that I had low cholestorol, he now wants to put me through the full testing procedure. I heard he was one of the best in the field, does anyone have any experience with him? He hasn't returned my calls for two weeks, but I think testing may be a good idea right about now..
Sorry about ranting
I look forward to talking to all on here.....sorry for any mispellings, I'm bad at checking my work
