I'm listening too...I'm just a little slow to respond. :P

I get all those symptoms you described but they're not related to gluten.

I think my symptoms are from having a bacteria overgrowth and candida overgrowth which I didnt get diagnosed with until a few weeks ago. My symptoms are worse after eating. Some days it doesnt matter what I eat...I feel sick. Other days are better. I'm on a restricted diet.

Maybe you have other food intolerances??

Hi, I feel the same way when I have anything sweet or potatoes. I think it is a blood sugar rise. I also get really hot--lasts for about 15-20 minutes. Do you get that? Anyone out there get that or am I just plain weird?

Does this happen when you have dinner or does it happen after any meal

Because if it happens after a larger meal where you mix a flesh food with a carbohydrate it takes a long time for you body to break something like that down. (ie: steak and potatoes; rice and chicken) It is harder for the body to break this combination of food down becasue both of those foods require a different enzyme then the other in order to break down. Actually if you do end up eating this combination of foods, the food usually ends up spoiling in your stomach and that is what makes people sick

A combination of food like this takes about 6-8 hrs. to empty from the stomach. As apposed to eating chicken and vegtables which does not take as long to break down and it is alot easier for your body to break donw not making you as tired....takes about 2-4 hrs.

I hope that this has helped, if you would like me to expand a little bit more just let me know :D

    • Biopsy confirmed?
      Sorry  To give you more info I had the endoscopy because I was diagnosed last year with Barretts Esophagus and gastritis. I've been on medication since but still had issues so they went back in to check how everything was going and to make sure the Barretts hadn't turned into anything nasty. I had a celiac blood test in 2014 ( negative) and the endoscopy in 2015 didn't show lymphocytes in the duodenum well that's if he biopsied that. I also had a colonoscopy with this years endo and all of that came back fine - I thought if I was celiac that would be affected also? As far as I know the biopsy only showed lymphocytes (white blood cells?) in the duodenum no damage to the villi but he used many big words that I didn't understand so he could have said more. With the blood test all I know is that I had a blood test for Celiac - I didn't know there were different tests for it. I'm a complete newbie with all this stuff so I just don't get what questions to ask him.  I'm so impatient I just want to know. I have a big family, a husband that is FIFO and I'm a stresser. 
    • Help interpreting biopsy results after gluten-free for 7 months
      Hi there, Just got my follow up biopsy results after being dx with celiac 7 months ago (dx with blood test + biopsy). Could anyone help interpret these new results as the doc wasn't much help... Basically he said good news is it looks like gut has healed up due to gluten-free diet. Bad news is that he has no explanation as to why I still have all of my symptoms.  Any help interpreting the attached results would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

      By now, you've likely heard about people going gluten-free, ridding their diets of foods such as pastas, breads, cereals, and processed foods that ... View the full article
    • Biopsy confirmed?
      Right, usually they do an endoscopy after a positive blood antibody test.  The biopsy confirms the antibody results.  Doing them in the reverse order doesn't hurt anything though.  Sometimes people "fail" the antibody tests but still have gut damage.  Not everybody makes the same antibodies or in the same quantities.  Anyway, you should make sure they are doing the complete celiac antibody panel, not just a ttg test. And don't worry if the celiac tests are positive for gliaden antibodies.  Going gluten-free is an adjustment to your diet. Quite a few people around here have managed to adjust successfully.  It takes some effort, but anything worthwhile does they say.

      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.
