Got Results Back Its Not Lupus
0

6 posts in this topic

so once again i get a negative result!!!

 

not sure how long i can cope with all this .im so fed up at the moment. i dont have lupus but my blood sugar is a tiny bit high ( the nurse said its hardly worth commenting on)- but they are gonna do a diabetes test anyway. my b 12 is low so ive got some tablets to take. when the doc was looking at the computer i was having a sneaky read - my b12 was 138!! i thought that was really low- so now im taking tablets for 3 months with no way of knowing if they are being absorbed or not.

she has said that shes refered me to a dermatologist for the rashes which is good- hopefully i,ll get some answers from them.

i did think i saw a few abnormals on the test results when i was having a sneaky peek so im gonna ring up tomorrow and ask for copies and copies of the last one that had the celiac tests on. that should be interesting to see exactly which tests they did.

 

so ive had my moan lol. hope i get some answers soon..

I'm glad to hear that it is not Lupus.

 

There is enough evidence to show that gluten is "more complex" for the human digestive track and that auto-immune disorders do better on a gluten free diet.When your testing is complete, try a gluten free diet.  If you feel better not eating gluten, then don't eat it.  Your body's reaction is a "scientific" proof.  (You will unfortunately have an accidental glutening that may prove this.)

Low B12 can really mess with your nervous system and more. Hopefully the tablets you are taking are sublingual. Sublinguals are absorbed by the mucus membranes in your mouth and bypass a damaged gut. Hope you get some answers soon and once your celiac testing is finished be sure to give the diet a good strict try for a bit.

Celiac can mimic lupus, there are a handful of us around here who thought we had it because our symptoms were the same. Luckily, if it is celiac disease, our symptoms will improve over time (years). It's toughto have no diagnosis because we aren't given meds to treat symptoms in the short term, but at least we have the potential to get better in the long run.

 

I hope you feel well soon.

hi thanks for answering

 

i am doing gluten free - since january. i felt fantastic at first then other symptoms kicked in. gave up dairy, soya and nightshades. but any testing i had done was all negative. i still have joint pain and so tired. but now im b12 deficient im now thinking that all my problems are down to that and maybe im not gluten intolerant at all. this not having a diagnosis is really getting to me. i did get my results off the doctor but theres only one test been done. dont know if you know anything about the tests but here's what was done.

. iga level       0.7          u/ml       (<6.9 u)        nk         normal

oh forgot to mention that ive started to "grow" lumps on my middle knuckle of my middle finger. worst on my right hand but my left is starting to go the same way. thats why the doctor tested me for auto immune disease. but the only thing they,ve found is the low b12- dont know if the knuckle thing could be coz of that ?

    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      I saw this the other day too & like Karen, wondered at the last line of the article. The article had me once again thinking about my deceased brother who was dx'd paranoid schizophrenic in his late 20's. He also had alternating constipation/diarrhea  but "they" always blamed it on his meds for the schizophrenia. We, his family, knew he had those issues prior to him being prescribed the meds but there is no telling the medical community something when you're talking about a mental patient.  Okay, I know the guy is selling something but the research noted in the article is valid: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2013/06/22/gluten-grains-cause-schizophrenia.aspx We knew about this back in the 50's & going forward. They even coined the term for it "bread madness". Why have we not recognized this in the psychology/mental health/institutions community for all these many years? Why does it seem to have been just shoved under the rug like some dirty little secret?  Wondering what kind of life my brother could have had - if  he had celiac - constantly haunts me.
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      My first thought was how many people that have been labeled as mentally ill or psychotic actually have Celiac Disease and never get diagnosed?  Their whole lives spent battling these conditions, being flooded with various meds and no one looks at their diet or does other testing!  It really is tragic.  I always wondered whether Patty Duke was an un-diagnosed Celiac.  She was finally diagnosed with bi-polar and ended up dying of a perforated intestine, at the young age of 69.  Ya gotta wonder........

      I think the company knows what the ingredients are better than us.  If you mean Amaretto, I have had it.  
    • Gluten free before biopsy???
      My doctor required me to continue eating gluten before the endoscopy for biopsy. She did say I could let up "a little" to ease some of the terrible pain I was having, but wanted me to eat gluten-containing foods every day until the biopsy. As it turned out, they were able to get me in quickly, so it was really only a few days for me. Both bloodwork and biopsy confirmed the diagnosis and now I am happily gluten-free! It has been a challenge, but having a gluten-free kitchen, checking labels on foods and being super-careful when going out has worked wonders. I am not 100% recovered yet, but getting energy back a bit at a time as my nutrition status improves. We don't eat out much - mostly at vegan places that declare they are gluten-free (although I still eat chicken, eggs, milk, and beef sometimes at home). One day, I'll go somewhere else - but not without checking first! Best of luck to you. I think it important to always double-check with the doctor when there are any questions at all. My doctor welcomes questions and I hope yours will too.
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      Thanks for posting I was just looking at this a short time ago. Something I found interesting was the last line of the article- " The psychosis that the woman experienced was an extreme condition and very unique, Fasano said. " While not common I am not sure that it is that unique.  There is a fair amount of research that has been done on the effects of gluten on the brains and nervous systems of celiacs.  Doing a search with the words neurological and celiac at places like Lancet, PubMed and the NIH can bring up some really interesting studies. Thankfully this impact is slowly becoming more common knowledge in the medical circles. Many of us have experienced in our families or first hand the way that the antibodies can impact our mood and thinking. It does seem miraculous when the clouds finally lift. I wish more doctors would test for celiac before pulling out the prescription pad, especially with kids.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
