Cod Liver Oil

All I can say is that my muscle and joint pain is much better since starting on a good magnesium (ionic). Infact magnesium does a lot for Celiac patients. Too much calcium can be toxic and magnesium is needed to assimilate calcium and doesn't have toxic levels...I have put links to a few good articles on other post about magnesium if you do a search you will see a lot of good discussion on it. It really makes a huge difference.

Thank you Lisa,

I picked up some Now Foods Calcium, Magnesium, and Vitamin D powder, and added it to my diet. I like that it says

Thomas,

Now you got me looking into Cod Liver Oil and Vit D and it is really good that you got the Cal/Mag/Vit D combo (I love NOW, they are a great company). Vit D helps with S.A.D., which I suffer from in a big way and it helps with Calcium retention in the bones and many other things. Only caution is that we probably need more Magnesium than Calcium in our supplements to get caught up, many symptoms people talk about having can be a toxic Calcium build since there is so much Calcium "fortification" going on around us. But of course that depends on how long you have been eating more whole foods and staying away from processed. One article said "symptoms of magnesium deficiency such as sleep difficulties, body tension, fatigue, muscle spasms or stiffness, heart conditions, PMS, depression, dispersal, diabetes, osteoporosis, asthma, nervousness, constipation" would mean you may have to look at correcting low Magnesium levels. Long story short, sometimes what looks like a Calcium deficency is actually Calcium overload. Anywho...Cod Liver Oil is a source high in D and I always like the whole food sources so I think I am going to get some as soon as possible, thanks!

Hey, I just read something on one of the articles on D that I found and thought I would share it, it said

Individuals who have reduced ability to absorb dietary fat (fat malabsorption) may need extra vitamin D because it is a fat soluble vitamin. Some causes of fat malabsorption are pancreatic enzyme deficiency, Crohn

And now that summer is getting started, don't forget to get out in the sunshine (sans sunblock) for a few minutes a day for additional vit D production.

Yes, good point, one article I read mentioned the medical field noticing an increase in lack of Vit D due to extensive use of sunblock. Saying giving your skin at least 15 minutes of sun a day is needed for the skin to produce D.

I was always told to expose the bare skin of the face, hands, and forearms for 15 minutes four times a week to avoud vitamin D deficiency. It is not long enough to get sun damage. It does help the mood to improve, too! Sunlight, sunlight, in my soul today!

I also have to mention that I noticed that I get muscle cramping after staying inside because of rain. My cramps cleared up with additional sunshine and supplements. :D

Hi Dessa,

I was wondering if you knew anything about the joint pain associated with celiac disease. When I did research on fibromialgia, I read where the joint pain was

Yes, Thomas, I had heard of that. Sadly, my joints are damaged by arthritis. The doctor ran blood tests, and found way more of the osteoarthritis proteins than a woman my age should have (according to her, anyway!). I had been told by a different doctor that I have rheumatoid arthritis, but the proteins are not in my bloodwork. Since I do not feel like I am getting aggressive treatment from my doctor, I am looking for whatever I can do to help myself. I tried glucosamine, but my joints really swelled bad and I was in extreme pain. I do not understand the reaction, but the pharmacist said it could have been an allergic reaction to shell fish. I don't have the bottle, and I can't remember the brand, so I don't even know if it was made of shellfish! I just want to feel better all over!

Hi Dessa,

I've been using Now Foods glucosamine with some good results. Their glucosamine does come from shell fish, and the odds are that the glucosamine you took was from shell fish. There are some other products out there now that are not from shell fish. Maybe one of these might work for you. One problem with glucosamine is that it is a sugar, so if you have diabetes it could present a problem.

    • puffiness in face
      The puffiness in my face went down a lot after I went gluten free. Old photos shock me sometimes now! Your doctor should be able to test you for food intolerance? Here in UK I did tests for wheat, nut, mustard etc. You can do a blood test and there's also skin prick tests I think, am sure others here would know more.  Good luck    
    • glutened by lays potato chips?
      Here in the UK I can't eat Lay's owned Walkers crisps as even the ones without gluten ingredients can cause a reaction. I read it was something to do with their production processes. Looks like others have same problems too:  
    • Newly diagnosed and totally overwhelmed
      Don't apologise! Not needed here at least where people know exactly what you're going through. As Cyclinglady says, you're now in a grieving process for the former, carefree attitude to food you've now lost. You may find this helpful in understanding the psychological journey you're on: http://psychcentral.com/lib/the-5-stages-of-loss-and-grief/ It WILL get better. Eating cleanly is very good advice as you heal but you can then find the replacement snacks and treats that are safe to eat.  I now know which chocolate bars are ok, which brands of crisps (chips) are safe etc.  I don't drink now, but I did find there were some fantastic ciders that I could tolerate and you've always got wine! In fact one of the weirder discoveries post gluten was that my past (vicious) hangovers were far more about gluten reactions than the alcohol itself. A cider hangover is a breeze in comparison All the best!  
    • glutened by lays potato chips?
      I ate some baked lays last night and felt very sick all night and haven't been feeling great all day today. Other than that I didn't eat anything different from what I normally eat and there was no risk of cross contamination with anything.. These were the only thing I had that was different. They're labeled gluten free so I figured it would be okay, but I started feeling sick pretty soon after eating them. I'm not sure if it's another ingredient in them or what (and i know it's not the soy).. Has anyone else had a reaction to lays potato chips?
    • Symptoms In Toddlers?
      Welcome Ashley! Here are the current tests.  The DGP versions seem to work a bit better than the TTG in small children.  So, ask for the complete panel (and get it all in one stick....my 15 year still hates to get blood drawn ! http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Your doctors are wrong!  They must be reading old medical text books.  Not all kids or people have failure to thrive!  You can even be symptom free!. I was anemic and had no intestinal issues when I was diagnosed.  celiac disease affects everyone differently and that's probably why so many folks are not diagnosed. Your kids (parents, siblings too) should be tested every few years (sooner if symptoms develop) per all the leading celiac researchers/doctors if a first-degree relative has celiac disease (like you!)  celiac disease can develop at any age! Hope this helps!

      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.
