High Ttg After 2 1/2 Years On Strict gluten-free Diet

27 posts in this topic

As I had expected, the appointment was more of a formality. Now that DS is considered a patient of Dr. Fasano we hill help guide this process from here on out. We live in Ohio so a trip to Boston isn't a) ease 2) cheap. Now, my sons health is worth whatever it takes but there is reality that going there again and again isn't going to happen.


As it stands now, he wants to see DS's biopsy slides again.  If the were negative, he wants to do a challenge till a) he can't any more, B) his levels rise or c) 6 months.  If they were positive then he wants to scope now and compare the damage. We will have to decide if we go back to Boston for a biopsy or the Celiac center about a 3 hour drive from here. 


So we walked away with a picture of DS with Dr. Fasano and a plan ;)


I would really delve into the other autoimmune issues even if you hold off on the biopsy.  When after a year we still had high levels we did a full on food lockdown and even tested things we were not 100% confident in.  We did find one thing and I though "Oh yeah! This is it, problem solved!" but alas, it wasn't that easy :(  Again, if you need to vent or ask things or throw things out there, let me know! I'm no Gemini but I have some mad food issue management skillz ;)

I think that your plan sounds good.  That is similar to what we did.  We came to the more strict diet gradually.

We did have problems with the cafeteria.  My son's school was unwilling to make any chances to cafeteria protocol and he seemed to get constantly glutened there until we arranged for him to eat elsewhere.  That was around age 12.  I imagine that there are precautions that could be taken instead if the school is willing.

I found a review of autoimmune conditions and celiac disease done by Dr. Fasano that might interest you:

    • Yes like a protein powder. I visit a local store there is so many brands and on every brand have write gluten free.that's way I confused which one is best any suggestions ! 
    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.

    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts,'s basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
