Back On Regluar Diet..
0

4 posts in this topic

Well a couple of weeks ago my sons GI doc told us to put him back on the regular diet after his endoscopy.. (which was negative) we have not had blood work done on him yet and I am trying to get a stool sample in for testing..

anyway.. I also went back on the regular diet.. and hey.. even though I am eating all kinds of stuff like candy and ice cream and all.. I have lost 6 pounds. Now fitting into my old jeans is cool and all.. but every day it seems I get on the scale and am a pound lighter.. I have also had bloating and gas and all.. I have fallen three times.. ( am normally klutsy but not this bad..) and have been feeling spacey..more than usual..

makes you think...

Has this wieght loss been related to diet? my son did not lose any weight.. didn't gain either.. his bms have been about the same..but he is avoiding most gluten containing items.. you would think if I am on a HIGH carb diet... eating lots of ice cream etc.. (i've been bad) that I would not be losing wieght.

I just wish I could mainly get some answers about my son.. and mabye after another two weeks of this if I am still losing Mom will have to go to the doc.. that'll give me four weeks on the regular diet.. good for testing..

Ugh UGh and triple UGH

D,

Are going to the washroom like crazy?? That could cause the weight loss. I used to be under 100lbs before diagnosis, but that's because every time I ate I could keep anything in my body!! I'd rather gain more weight and be healthy than underweight and malnurished.

Somewhat..I would have to say yes more than before.. whats worse is being an adult and having accidents.. :angry: I started having trouble when I had the last baby Mr 11 pound boy.. I chalked it up to that.. didn't accociate it with my other son's problems till now that I am having this trouble again..

I weighed 90 pounds till 7 years ago when my first son was born.. now I am getting progressively lighter..about 2 pounds a week.. and I am eating high carb high fat ice cream cookies etc etc.. all the bad stuff..

so it's not like I am trying to lose weight

Hi D. It sounds like your body may not be absorbing nutrients (and calories). Doesn't sound healthy to me. I'm not a doctor, but I'd sure go see one.

Good luck.

Kim.

    • Hello, I have frequent canker sores (roughly comes back every couple of months). Some blood test results are as following. Component Your Value Standard Range TISSUE TRANSGLUTAMINASE IgG 0.31 Index <=0.90 Index Tissue transglutaminase IgA 0.96 Index <=0.90 Index My doctor said that result is unspecific, and I unlikely have celiac disease, since I do not have other abdominal symptoms. For reference, I do have frequent constipation, excessive gas, frequent canker sore, etc. Do you think an upper endoscopy is recommended? I am a little hesitate considering the risk of this procedure and the fact that my symptoms are not that bad. I appreciate all suggestions.  
    • Hello, I see you posted this a long while ago, and perhaps--I hope-- it's no longer a matter of concern, but I thought I'd mention that shortly before I was diagnosed for celiac's, I had distinct yellow blotches on the corners of my eyelids toward my nose. Some months after I had stopped eating gluten, the yellow gradually went away, and--as it just reappeared now several years later, I googled the issue again.  I am only speculating here, but I do believe it is related to liver problems, which, in turn, are related to celiac's. I don't think liver function tests cover all aspects of liver health. I say this because when I was pregnant I developed a temporary liver condition called interhepatic colestasis of pregnancy (ICP), but my liver function tests had been fine. (The condition is diagnosed based on bile levels in the blood, not on liver function). I discovered upon some research that (of course!) ICP  can be associated with celiac's disease.  My hunch is this-- that celiac's presents two problems to the liver: 1) the malabsorption of nutrients--esp. Vit. K2-- that are vital liver health; 2) since gluten registers as a toxin to the immune system (I think?), perhaps the liver gets overloaded processing so much toxic material. Or perhaps there's some other reason. At any rate, poor liver health and celiac's do seem to be linked, according to a few articles I've found. Anyway, hope your problems are resolved now.  
    • my daughter did stool test from enterolab but this gluten sensitive blood test is from http://requestatest.com/tests/search    
    • OK, was your daughter tested by a doctor or did you do one of these order online stool tests? And the same question goes for your tests. Can you give a link to the company?
    • NO. Approx. 1/3 of the population carries the genes for celiac but that does NOT mean they will ever present with celiac. Only a small percentage of them will. A gene test is really used more to rule out celiac rather than to diagnose it. What I meant was that since your daughter is diagnosed and IF you carry one or both of the celiac genes then there is a greater chance you are celiac or "early stages" especially in light of your symptoms. All 3 of those factors weighed together was what I was referring to.
