      Can Celiac Disease Be Related To Small Bowl Obstruction?
      I have been gluten free since February 2012 after a biopsy diagnosed celiac disease. Recently, I experience stomach pain that was so intense (nothing like I had ever experienced before) and went to urgent care where they then rushed me to the emergency room and I was admitted to the hospital with a diagnosis of a small bowl obstruction.

      Reading about small bowl obstructions, a main risk factor is a prior stomach surgery which I have never had. So I was wondering if celiac disease could have been the cause.

      They also said my tests showed my small intestine was twisted, could this have also been related to celiac disease.

    3. sharilee added a post in a topic Ethical (And Legal) Question On Enterolab   

      How did you find out that you live in a state that requires the order be submitted through the doctor? A lot would depend on why it is illegal to do so in your state. Which would depend on your state's particular law. It may only be illegal to order it directly if you intend to use those results for submitting to insurance or something like that. But using the results for your own personal information may not be illegal to order.

      I can't say for certain but I do not remember having to sign a disclaimer as to the state I live in when I ordered from Enterolab. I only remember having to sign a disclaimer as to who I am, my date of birth, weight and height (information I guess they use in interpreting test results).

      I doubt seriously they pay attention to the amount of orders they receive that the shipping address and credit card billing address do not match. Also that is probably fairly common with their orders anyway as a family member may be paying for another family member's test so they would not match.

      I doubt you would be slapped with a federal fine as although federal law would apply because of more than one state being involved and the mail, the feds have much bigger problems, if you were to get in trouble it would more likely be with your individual state but that is unlikely to as your state is probably not concerned with minor violations either.

      It does get better with time. I have been gluten free since late February and it took about three months for things to start to return to normal. I still have problems but not every day like I was, now I will go several days with no problems. I am sorry it cost you your marriage, any type of illness can put a strain on marriage.

      The first time I had a normal bowel movement after being diagnosed with celiac I was so excited and even more excited when I went several days in a row without an attack. I wanted to throw a party.

      I was diagnosed with hypothyroid in 2004, discovered during testing for infertility. My main symptoms were dry brittle hair, dry skin and fatigue.

      Soy Intolerance, Questions
      I have an intolerance to soy in addition to celiac. I am giving up soy but see it is in so many foods.

      For those who do not eat soy do to an intolerance, do you avoid all forms of soy?

      Also are there any good marinades that do not contain soy? I eat a lot of chicken and frequently marinade it but all my gluten free marinades contain soy as an ingredient

      Welcome! I was diagnosed with celiac late February 2012. It is very overwhelming at first. But it does get easier with time. When I was first diagnosed I took my list of ingredients to watch for and checked everything. Would spend a long time shopping. Now I have learned the ingredients to watch for and it is easier and quicker to read the labels. At first (as others have said) it is best to avoid dairy and try to eat natural foods not processed foods while your body heals.

      I did not know that about soy. It would explain why I have so much trouble with it during PMS and my period.

      Both PMS and my periods got worse after quitting gluten. I haven't had gluten since late February 2012. Since then my periods are heavier, PMS is worse and lasts longer. I also noticed that during my period I am unable to tolerate soy and lactose which I can tolerate when I am not having my period. My doctor said it would get better with time as my body heals and my PMS and periods will get better.
