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.
