I just received my test results back after 2 1/2 months of being gluten-free and the GI did not find any evidence of Celiac Disease so I don't know if I have healed so they couldn't see any damage or if I am actually just intollerant of:





Soy Bean

Vinegar (but not wine)

and was curious about everyone elses' diagnoses.

Thanks in advance...Kate

I was gluten-free for two weeks before testing, never had severe symptoms, and don't have many of the complicating factors that would suggest malabsorption (hence, there's likely not as much intestinal damage for me as others may have). My test results were negative aside from the anti-reticulin IgA. The gluten-free diet made me feel better, and I did a dietary challenge after 1 month gluten-free (and may do another one, since that one included dairy), which had positive results.

I did Enterolab stool tests 2 months after going gluten-free and STILL showed both gluten and casein antibodies/intolerances. When I tried to subsitute soy for dairy, my BODY told me (with symptoms similar to my 'dairy' symptoms) that I also don't tolerate soy products. I also limit acidic stuff (tomatoes, citrus, acidic condiments) now, because I just feel better (less reflux, gas, bloating, cramping). My initial symptoms were EXCRUCIATING abdominal pain, bloating, gas, constipation, steatorrhea, fatigue and other less obvious ones. Eliminating gluten relieved the excruciating pain and some of the bloating and gas. Eliminating dairy relieved the constipation, steatorrhea, menstrual like pains, bloating and gas. Avoiding soy prevented the last 3 symptoms. So avoiding gluten/dairy/soy DEFINITELY relieved my symptoms.

    • At the moment it's microwave rice packets as it needs to be something easy for lunch at work. What do you choose for breakfast? At the moment I have gluten-free porridge oats with fruits but also seeing oats are a bit of a gamble in the early days. Trying to figure out how long a reaction takes to show up i.e. if I feel ropey later in the day is it really lunch as I'm blaming at present or actually is it something from the morning or even night before? The food is the toughest bit for me right now; wasn't that great with it before so will need plenty ideas from you good people... seems I'm in the right place though   
    • I know what you're going through - it's that grieving process and it's tough.  I was diagnosed in 2013, and aside from an occasional pity party, I don't look back. I have my restaurants where I feel safe, I have the food I know I can eat, and I get on with my life.  I'm lucky that I live in a big city with lots of options, but you can make this work, and you will feel better and once you do, you'll stop grieving.  The people on this site helped enormously. It is tough in the beginning to know if you've been 'glutened' vs. just going through withdrawal.  For that reason alone, it's best to avoid restaurants for a little while and be careful at home - just to be sure what's happening.  Eventually you'll be able to get back to your version of 'normal'.  Oh, I also have hypothyroid/hashimoto's.  No big deal, I take synthroid. Quinoa, eggs, nuts and beans for protein.  You don't have to go crazy on the cooking.  Just eat a lot of whole foods.  There are a lot of complicated recipes out there, but now may not be the time.  Rice noodles in veggie bouillon - easy and cheap.  gluten-free pasta with olive oil, parmesan and garlic - easy.  I eat a lot of rice and have never had a problem - you're not getting it out of one of those bulk bins, are you?  That could be contaminated.  Go with packaged.  Do you have access to the Macro Vegetarian brand of prepared rice dishes (in the refrigerated section).  They have several that are gluten free, they're delicious heated and with a little gluten-free soy sauce.  They're my go to on days I don't want to cook. Good luck!  
    • I also think that the HPV/Gardasil vaccine triggered something in my body. I had some Celiac symptoms many years before this vaccine but I felt ok. I was physically very active. However, after I received the third dose as well, I began having more problems including a more persistant pain, overall body weakness, lack of concentration, hair loss, etc.
    • OK so been to the doctor, they've sped up my referral and I should get the appointment booking form in the post shortly. They've said stay off the gluten until I have a date for the appointment then in the weeks leading up to it go back on - thoughts? Did my bit of sport last night which was a great relief to be free of any illness-related thoughts for an hour or two; didn't think I'd have the energy at the start but soon got going and was OK so that's a plus I seem to be getting some strange symptoms at the moment that have only happened since trying to remove gluten, do these sound familiar to anyone? dry forehead, just starting to go red \ itchy in places. Treating with E45-type cream tender scalp and sides of head, almost like a pulling feeling and a bit sensitive to touch. Scared this one matches the symptoms of GCA, a particularly nasty autoimmune disease that can lead to blindness 
      Edit: having said that just found this thread and funny enough did wash my hair this morning... one eye watering and associated fuzzy vision at times, trying to reassure myself it isn't blurred vision due to the point above sometimes bit of a lump in throat sensation, seems to come and go Been reading that some people can't handle rice - I was OK with it whilst eating gluten but have been having it for lunch each day and seem to get worse around 4-5pm so could that be a culprit? How long after coming off gluten would I be able to say I'm at a baseline to know if feeling ill is down to "glutening" vs. blaming it on the body adjusting to the change in (lack of) gluten in food?
