radley posted a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsHello, I am self-diagnosed Celiac as I definitely feel better when gluten-free and I had all the symptoms of Celiac: - Fatigue - Muscle and joint pain - Stomach cramps - Anxiety - Depression - Malabsorbtion - My fingers became crooked (arthritis?) - Thyroid issues - Diarrhea/Constipation However even after going fully gluten-free I sometimes get diarrhea. It's really strange as sometimes I react and other times I do not. Symptoms come and go as they wish. I believe in New Age stuff and binaural beats really do work in curing some health issues but I should know which ones to use as listening to too many has diminishing effect. However I don't want any doctor to mess with my body and I don't want to have a My Gluten blood tests always come negative. Although I am gluten-free now I get diary very often, especially when drinking lots of milk or eating too much apples for example. I felt bloated while fully gluten-free and eating apples. Could that be Fructose Malabsorption? Can it be as dangerous as Celiac, e.g. can FM cause autoimmune things or is that only Celiac? But if I have it why I do not react to smaller amounts of fruits, e.g. an apple or two a day? I also don't react to berries, I seem to have problem mostly with oranges, apples, apricots, plums, and pears in large quantities. In small quantities I have no problem usually. Sometimes I get problems with eating too many peanuts as I get an itch after going to WC (sorry about that) but I am not allergic to them. Could my problems be Gluten Intolerance + Candida? I no longer want to see any doctor as their 'treatments' made me sicker than my own treatments and therapies, so please give me some advice from your personal experience. I guess I am totally suitable for a Paleo diet with eating only berries as fruits? I am certain a vegan or vegetarian living is not for me as I lost 30 kilos on a vegan, raw food diet in just a few months, I became almost anorexic, so my body is omnivore. I've discovered that I thrive best on seafood, chicken, berries and veggies. Thanks!
I have been gluten-free for about 2 months now due to intolerance. One of the books I have recently read in researching the topic of celiac and gluten intolerance is book "Wheat Belly". This book talks about the reasons why EVERYBODY should be gluten-free regardless of whether or not they have celiac or gluten intolerance. Based on the info in this book and to support me, my husband has gone gluten-free. As a result, he has already experienced several improvements with arthiritis in his hand and plantar faciatis. He also is slowly loosing inches from his waiste. I also have recently heard and seen talk about the "Gluten-Free fad diet" and how for people without celiac issues, it is a fraud and an unnecessary lifestyle change. I am just curious about any opinions you all might have on people without gluten issues following the gluten-free diet and how to encourage others to follow the diet if indeed it is a healthy thing for all people. Thanks!
KnightRobby posted a topic in Celiac Disease - Post Diagnosis, Recovery/Treatment(s)I was wondering if anyone has tried it? It keeps getting mentioned all over the internet, wherever I go. I was wondering if anyone had experience with it for long durations or if it has helped anyone at all? I am having gallbladder problems and diagnosed with Celiac Disease. Now my GI doctor is telling me, "Well, could be Chron's as indicated by your blood work. But your biopsy was normal." Or it could be IBS, if everything comes back negative. However, I was tested positive for Celiac. I have no idea what is going on at this point, but I do know that this diet keeps getting mentioned in relation to my gallbladder, Celiac, IBS, and other research. Thanks for your help.
