Hi Kerrylad.  IMH, It looks like a whole lot of fat is in your diet, although I don't know what "chipper" food is.  If your symptoms don't improve with cutting out some fat and lots of water, then maybe look closer at your whole diet, vitamin and mineral levels and general overall health.

 

I hope things resolve for you.

Maybe its not Celiac but your awful diet?  Try to eat better - less fried & fatty stuff, add a vegetable or some fruits that aren't fried or sauced or cheese covered?  The lack of fiber in your diet and excess fat are hard on your intestines.

Don't think 4 biscuits at one time is ever a good idea.  If you think you may have Celiac, you should ask your Doctor to run the appropriate tests.

HI Kerrylad,

 

Since your test results are negative you may as well try the gluten-free diet for a few months and see what happens.  Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease and you need to avoid even tiny amounts of gluten to stop the autoimmune reaction.  It can take weeks to months for the immune reactions to stop.  So cheating once a week or so will keep it from ever stopping.  You will need to avoid any wheat, rye, and barley.  You should also avoid oats at first.  I suggest you write down your symptoms first and then compare them to how you feel after 3 months.  It wouldn't hurt to record your blood pressure, glucose, heart rate and weight also.  Just an interesting set of info to compare later.

It's becoming pretty clear it's the gluten, regardless of what the test results say.  That food you ate was contaminated, regardless of whether or not you actually ate the pastry, and who knows what was in the sauce??? :rolleyes:

 

The verdict looks likely to be either non-celiac gluten intolerant, or else still celiac despite the tests, since those with primarily neurologic symptoms often test negative on the celiac tests because they are designed to look for the more gastro manifestations.  This includes the endoscopy with biopsies in the small intestine.

 

As GFinDC says, you can't do an attempt at somewhat gluten free -- it has to be all the way, or nothing.  It will take a while to learn how to do real gluten free, but this is your first lesson - taking the pastry off and trying not to eat the sauce is not eating gluten free because anything that sauce and pastry has touched is contaminated.

Hi Kerrylad,

 

Just guessing you are in Ireland?

 

Eating in restraunts is a bad idea of you are just starting out on the gluten-free diet.  Most are not safe for celiacs.  Some restraunts do have gluten-free menus but you should still wait until your body has adapted to the gluten-free diet and you have learned how to avoid cross contamination before trying to eat out. And that is not a 5 minute process to learn those things.  You should mostly eat food you cook yourself from scratch at first, using whole ingredients.  That way you learn what ingredients are safe for you and begin to understand how your body reacts to different foods.  Nightshades, (peppers, tomatoes, potatoes, and eggplant) are  known to cause joint paint for some people.  They contain alkaloids that are not easily processed by your liver.

 

Some starting the gluten-free diet tips for the first 6 months:

Get tested before starting the gluten-free diet.
Get your vitamin/mineral levels tested also.
Don't eat in restaurants
Eat only whole foods not processed foods.
Eat only food you cook yourself, think simple foods, not gourmet meals.
Take probiotics.
Take gluten-free vitamins.
Take digestive enzymes.
Avoid dairy.
Avoid sugars and starchy foods.
Avoid alcohol.

Cool, Ireland is a beautiful country!  I used to get those mouth ulcers fairly often myself, but haven't had one in quite a while.  I guess its one of those thing that went away with gluten-free although I just didn't notice it.  Yep, gluten is in a whole lot of the processed foods these days.  You really need to learn to check labels every time you buy something.  It gets to be a habit after a while.

 

Time for improvement varies and awful lot between people.  Some people feel improvements within a few days, for others it can take months to even longer.  Gluten doesn't hang around in your body a long time.  What does take time is for the antibody reactions to die down.Think about measles.  You get exposed to measles once and you become immune to it for life because every time you are exposed to the germs your body kicks up a storm of antibodies and kills them all.  If it stopped that attack too soon you might still be in an area that has measles germs and get reinfected.  So it keeps making antibodies for a while even after the immediate threat is gone.  But any time you are re-exposed the immune system will go on full alert again and start attacking.

 

You are right, some of the gluten-free baked goods have a poor taste compared to gluteny versions.  But some are pretty good too.   You should mostly not eat those type of things at the beginning of the gluten-free diet anyway.  It is better to eat whole foods instead and just avoid the processed foods, including gluten-free baked goods.

Hi Kerrylad,

 

Yes, you can develop celiac disease at any time of life.  It is learned autoimmune response, just like your bodies immune system learns to respond to germs.  If you have the genes for celiac disease, it can be triggered at any time, as a child, an adult or even people in their 80's sometimes develop it.  there are also other gluten related illnesses that are recently discovered.  The links below describe them.  You won't

 find any testing for these conditions yet, as they are too new.

    • As a GI specialty nurse who also has celiac I can tell you that it can not be diagnosed by CT and rarely unless you have severe disease can it be diagnosed by colonoscopy.  Those that have had it diagnosed by colonoscopy have such because their MDs were above to get into the small bowel from the bottom and take biopsys.  Celiac damage is not seen in the large intestine.  Also many people do not have diarrhea, many have constipation or a 50/50 mix between the two.  Celiac has 300 connected symptoms and sometimes no symptoms at all.  It's called the " great pretender" because of this.
    • Okay, thanks! I am 24 but my husband and I don't plan on having kids. However, the more I thought about it, the more I think I should get one for my brother's sake. Especially after my doctor's office called this evening to say my bloodwork tested positive for Celiac. Guess I will be on this forum longer than I thought!
    • You just got diagnosed Celiac and are wondering how serious this really is. What if there is just a little gluten in your food? What if you use the same toaster for your gluten-free bread as your wife's/husband's regular bread? What if those french fries are gluten-free but they fry them in the same fryer as those nice gluten coated onion rings? View the full article
    • Hi, I've never been on a forum before but thought I might find some answers here.  I have never been tested for celiac but a nurse practitioner I saw a few years ago told me she thought I would benefit from a gluten free diet.  At first, I thought I could never do this but after some encouragement I did try.  I did feel much better after going gluten free.  She never tested me for celiac. I turned 50 years old last year and I had a colonoscopy for the first time and had three polyps removed.  The surgeon said that my colon looked like I was a chronic laxative user.  I haven't used a laxative for a very long time.  I was at the time drinking a natural tea to help me to have bowel movements.  Before starting the tea I had always had difficulty with bowel movements and never had them once a day but with the tea I was able to go once a day. At the end of last month I developed severe pain after I would eat (I had my gallbladder removed at the age of 19).  One night the pain got so bad my husband had to drive me to the ER.  My liver functions were high as well as a few other things.  They did a CT scan of my abdomen and pelvis that showed wall thickening of my transverse colon and minimal irregularity involving the transverse colon.  My descending and sigmoid colon were collapsed.  There were a few tiny mesenteric lymph nodes present on the right.  They diagnosed me officially with colitis but said that most likely I had a gallstone (even though I don't have a gallbladder) that had come from the liver and had gotten stuck in the common bile duct (it did not show up on the CT scan).  I usually have a high ferritin level too.  I've been home from the hospital stay for about a month now and still have tenderness in the epigastric area. Some of this may not have anything to do with celiac but was wondering if anyone has been diagnosed with celiac by CT scan or colonoscopy or if anyone has had the same problems that I have had and found out what has caused it.  I cannot see the gastroenterologist who saw me in the hospital for a couple of months.  Can you have celiac and not have diarrhea as I am just the opposite? Any help would be appreciated!  Thanks!  
    • I had an acne flair up after going gluten free but it ended up improving and some long-term back acne I had been dealing with actually went away.  I think going gluten free was a shock to my system and at first I actually felt worse but after about a month things got better.
