It's been years since my gallbladder was checked...It was fine the last time, though. I have not had f/u upper endoscopy.

I say no dairy in ANY form for the next three months. Research lactose, casein or whey intolerances. That is a good place to start since most people with celiac disease develop a temporary lactose intolerance due to damaged villi. Do not forget that you can sustain damage to villi from milk but that is rare!

If symptoms persist, do check your gallbladder for not only for stones but to test for how it functions (squeezes). That is the HIDA scan.

Just curious...if you have a lactose intolerance but have not had it in 3 days...should you still feel sick from the effects of the LAST time you had it? Like still nauseous etc...(do I even make sense lol?)

It takes me about 4 days to feel better after eating a food that I do not tolerate.  My nurse caregiver says that it takes about 4 days for the antibodies to die down.  Three days seems to me within a reasonable time.

 

My dentist removed my mercury fillings very carefully.  He used what he called a "rubber Damn" to avoid having mercury go down my throat.  This felt like he wedged a balloon between my teeth.  He also didn't remove all of my fillings at once, but left time between them.  There must be reasons for the care he took in this.  I hope similar cautions were taken for you.

mercury overload  can be  dangerous.....Did  your  dentist  use  the  mercury  protocol when  removing  your  mercury fillings? Many  dentist  just  drill out  the  old  mercury filling  without  precautions causing the patient  to  end  up  with  a lot  of  medical issues....WE  all have  lead & mercury in our  systems,  it is when we  get  an overload  the problems  begin....

Our  son  went  through a mercury/lead  detox  for  months.....we  used  a  specialist  for  the  treatments ( IV injections,)  Some  made  him  pretty sick  ....Please  seek  a specialist  in this  field......

The dentist did use proper precautions. I also have many of the symptom of yeast overgrowth and candida...which apparently go along with mercury toxicity? I am not doing the chelation (sp?) I'm taking multiple supplements, along with IMD (intestinal metals detox)...

Jamie,

No offense, but have you even read and understood everyone's comments on mercury toxicity? You have three kids that need a mom. You should be under a medical doctor's supervision. I know you live in MS, but drive to New Orleans or Memphis for a consult.

Regarding candida, unless you have something like AIDS or chronic thrush in your mouth or vagina from taking antibiotics daily for years, you probably do not have an issue with yeast. More than likely you have a problem with MILK because folks with celiac disease usually have milk issues. It costs nothing to test that theory and it is safe. Just take a calcium supplement to protect your bones. With three tiny children, you probably can not get a good handle on a gluten free diet or you are giving it your all to you family (as mothers do).

There are no quick fixes for celiac disease.

Yes...I said I have seen a doctor in Nashville. I also have a friend who is a dentist in Colorado that is going through the same thing. I ordered the mercury test her naturopath suggested and am going to take it from there. I was just curious if anyone else had similar experiences...I am here to tell you it is not gluten though...I do not think I could be more careful than I am...If you would read about candida...it goes hand in hand with mercury toxicity...Mercury feeds yeast...So you do not necessarily have to have the conditions you stated...Especially if it's in your gut...

This is just my personal opinion, and it probably isn't worth much to you, but.... I wouldn't let a dentist diagnose or treat me for anything but dental things. I would read info from reputable researchers/ medical centers on mercury poisoning and yeast. Theses issues are not that common. I would hate for you to hurt yourself with the treatments or mis- diagnose something serious or easily fixable. Trying to be dairy free for a few weeks is cheap and easy and shouldn't cause you any harm.

I think that is what everyone here is trying to say.

However, it is your money and your body...... I wish you good luck and good health. If we can help you with any issues related to Celiac, please let us know. :)

Wow....you've got a lot coming at you! I just thought I would pipe in and further muddy the waters :wacko:  -- yesterday I was reading an article that was addressing the increase in incidence of lyme disease in the southern US. Big numbers in the northeast and mid-western states and in southeastern Ontario have been known for some time, but suddenly this disease is appearing, quite noticeably, in the south. Your symptoms rang a bell, so I thought I'd chime in. Wow, lots to deal with -- I do hope you get this all figured out.

What feeds yeast even more is sugar.  The odds of anyone having mercury problems, unless directly exposed to/ingested it, is pretty slim.  You will not develop mercury toxicity from amalgam fillings.  That is pseudo science perpetrated by people who will make money off of people's lack of knowledge on it.

 

I know a lot about Candida issues and Celiac Disease is often the culprit in yeast problems because it throws your whole GI system off kilter.  If you have no good gut bacteria to keep yeast in check, it can cause systemic problems.  You need to go on an anti-fungal and take sugar out of your diet.  Nothing white/refined to eat at all for about a year.  It works beautifully but many people cannot do it because it's much harder to kick sugar than gluten.  I did it twice and I never felt better in my life....aside from quitting gluten.

Once I discovered the Celiac also, and my gut healed, I have never had a candida problem since.
