Gluten Free 5 Weeks Some Symptoms Getting Worse

Yes, sadly some of us do get worse before we improve.  If you have not, remove dairy -- it is the most common intolerance for those with Celiac Disease.

 

Hang in there!

Hi again ,

when I couldn't get up from the sofa , I drank the broth from the chicken , please ask someone to boil up a chicken for you so you can at least drink the broth ,

also your dietician can they prescribe food drinks for you whilst you cannot eat , I had some prescribed and they did help ,

plenty of water and the chicken broth will help until your doctors find out what the problem is for you

Wow!  We have a lot in common!  I recently posted a thread similar to yours asking for help.  I'm now six months out from diagnosis and I feel worse all the time!  And, like you, I continue to lose weight.  I haven't seen any blood, and I'm not in the bathroom quite as many times as you are, but other than that we are quite similar.  It seems like every week I discover something else that I can't seem to tolerate.  I've had two endoscopes a year apart.  The first showed "slight inflammation - non specific, and I was told that I didn't have celiac.  The more recent one "moderate inflammation", and this time I was told I tested positive. I can't find a protein drink either, so the dietician told me to try pea protein powder. I haven't tried it yet.  I've been drinking MuscleEgg for awhile.  You can order it online.  It's simply pasteurized egg whites that comes frozen.  I seem to tolerate it well.  I have an appointment with a new gi in a few weeks.  I'm hoping he can help figure out if there's an additional problem.  I hope you see some improvement soon.  Keep writing!  I'm so anxious (for both of us) to hear what you find out.

My nutrient levels fell somewhat after I went gluten free.  They have since gone up again.  Keep on it you should get somewhere!

Just an update for anyone who was wondering. My colonoscopy was completely normal so I was sent for a CT Scan to rule out lymphoma. I do not have lymphoma, however, during the CT scan they found inflammation near the end of my small intestine (not anywhere outside of the small intestine though) indicating Crohn's disease and recommended a colonoscpy to confirm. My GI, however, thinks the CT scan is a false positive because my colonoscopy was negative and has prescribed hysocyamine to stop the diarrhea. I am having a second opinion given by a separate hospital that has a highly regarded celiac program since I have many symptoms of crohn's including eye issues. I also dropped below the minimum sodium levels so I was tested for addison's disease too waiting on the results. My b12 also tanked and I am dumping more than half of my shot in 3 days or less so I was moved to every two weeks again. I think we are finally getting somewhere it's just slow going...

This is old but I know when people google these or search the forums there aren't always follow ups when the problem was solved. We solved my problem, it was not crohn's or hidden gluten, I have fructose malabsorbsion as well as bit of a sorbitol intolerance. Ironically I figured it out at the gluten free expo because most of the samples were sweetend with HFCS or Fruit Juice and it left me sick as hell since I wasn't eating processed food the samples wreaked havoc on my insides even more so than day to day eating. I met with my celiac specialist GI shortly after and she confirmed it. At 4 months post diagnosis my ttg IgA went down and was a weak positive and both DGP's went back to normal/negative so I am following the gluten-free diet carefully. It is not SIBO it's just fructose malabsorbtion. So I am now Gluten free, dairy free, very low fructose/fructans, low sorbitol/polyols. Within 24 hours of going fructose and sorbitol free in addition to gluten free and dairy free I was feeling like a new person. Thank you for all of the advice here. Hopefully if anyone pulls this up with the same situation this info can help them.

    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
    • I don't have a lot of faith in the allergy testing naturalpaths do. I had them done, but really it wasn't very helpful. Foods that were okay on the blood work- I was still having obvious reactions to. Skin testing through an allergist didn't show up food allergies either. I agree the food elimination diet is a better way to go and doesn't cost a bunch of money. I did a whole 30 diet a while back that could have been helpful if the foods I reacted to were corn, dairy,  soy, grains and sugar- but I react to more than that.  I do need to do a major elimination diet- just haven't gotten up the willpower yet.   
    • Quick search gave too many responses to TGI Fridays but none to TGI Fridays Buns (or similar) so... I was talking with my sister-in-law (Gluten Intolerant) and she spoke highly of a pre-packaged bun from Fridays. I was hesitant but she gave me one (apparently you can buy them from the restaurant?) and I tried it. Since I'm slow to react I won't know about gluten for a bit but I can definitely say it is the closest to "real" I've had in years! Spongy, doesn't crumble while eating a sandwich and tastes good. Color me impressed! I tried to determine the manufacturer or if Fridays actually makes them but I can't locate anything worth pursuing. Anyone have information on this? Thanks in advance.
