Hanging In There Against The Depression And Anxiety
0

8 posts in this topic

I have had Celiac for years but was only diagnosed recently. I have been reading posts for several weeks and learning more and more. I am grateful for all of the insight and help I received from this forum. I have never had problems with moods or depression until removing gluten from my diet. This is as difficult as the pain is to deal with.

My oldest son was diagnosed with Celiac several years ago. My symptoms were SO different from his that I had no idea that I was suffering with the same thing. He has just posted a song on YouTube that fits how I am feeling with the struggle right now. It is Martina McBride's Anyway. May it encourage all who chose to listen. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ino14YBsHE8

Both my daughter and I suffer from depression when we are glutened, mine is mild hers is pretty severe. She also has panic attacks and we are hoping that the longer she is gluten-free (she's only been doing it a couple of months, at 16 she "goofs" a lot) the fewer panic attacks she will have. Its very difficult to go thru.

I have only been gluten free for about 6 weeks and I have been so darn depressed lately. I think it has only hit me recently that this is a complete life change. Combine this with feeling sick all the time and not being able to exercise.

I have heard people say that depression symptoms ease with the gluten-free diet, I guess I'm just waiting for that to kick in. I feel so bad for my fiance who is so patient with me, he could be out having fun but instead is lounging around the house getting bored because I don't want to o anywhere. sigh :(

You need Green Magma in order to attack depression associated with celiac disease.

It worked on me and when my nephew first got depression it worked on him. It takes

24 hours for it to kick in and then energy level shoots way up. Check health stores

for it but not a GNC. Go to Green magma and it

should be listed there.

That has barley grass and it is certified gluten free and says so right on the label.

yep,

Because its has sprouted and is no longer a grain, it no longer has gluten. No grasses contain gluten as far as I am aware. I used to take something similar in the form of gluten free powdered wheat grass. Must admit it did help the energy levels.

My husband never suffered from depression and anxiety, until after he removed gluten from his diet. Whenever he accidentally is "glutened" he is absolutely unbearably miserable!! It is a hard thing to go through, and I saw the post on the green magma. I will check this out for him! This site is so helpful for dealing with all the stuff that goes along with gluten intolerance. When my husband was diagnosed, we were told, " just don't eat gluten" and given a list of acceptable and unacceptable foods. That was it. This website has been so helpful!

    • I figured I would update those who were wondering.  I have gotten the appt. so far moved up to August 30. I am waiting to have gene testing done via swab for all 3 of my kiddos tomorrow. My daughters celiac antibodies came up negative but her IgA is low which the ped said could cause false negative antibodies for celiac so she will need to see a GI dr. also. The pediatrician is going to call the GI to try to get them in sooner. I am keeping them all on a gluten diet until the GI dr. decides what to do. I am on the cancellation list already for my son, however I am not going to be persistent with my phone calls to them until I have the results of the gene test. I really want that result in my hand before going to the GI dr if I can. Maybe if he is positive, along with his bloodwork and my history they can forgo the endoscopy. But he will eat gluten till then.  My husband and I have been very honest and upfront with him as to what is going on and the possibility of the endoscopy and what that entails and although scared in general he seems ok after assuring him that since I have it he has me to help him every step of the way.  Going through his current diet with him I realized that he is truly on such a low gluten diet that I am actually surprised his bloodwork shows antibodies at all!  So I told him to make a list of allllll the gluten he could possibly think of eating and he needs to pound it until the GI visit or endoscopy. Funny thing is everything he keeps thinking of to want to eat...is already gluten free!  The other night we were at a friends and he asked if he could be done with his hotdog. I made him finish just the bread 😂 Thanks for your help and advise and I will keep y'all posted on both kids!  My oldest is a ok as far as all his antibodies. Just actually had a follow up for other immune issues and all his levels are now normal!
    • I like your plan Cara, I may have to include it in my sons.    Poor little guy is still very very sick. I think he is resisting and cheating, despite having the support of two other siblings and a 100% gluten-free home. 
    • Despite it being a nightmare, I did wait for my kids to get biopsies. At one point I had one severely ill child gluten-free and two more waiting having to eat it. It was worth the wait though and I think long term a biopsy may be worthwhile, especially for school. I have already had issues with schools and camps so having a firm diagnosis has been helpful. 
    • Knowing that the reaction to gluten in celiacs is an uncalled for immune system reaction, I was thinking of how a cure would be possible. Maybe a medicine that somehow turns off the immune system. The only thing that i've heard do that... HIV.  obviously that's way worse than celiac. Just some food for thought.
    • Well, you can probably get an apple or something.  You might be able to get someone to boil you some eggs.  But be careful of things like nuts that should be naturally gluten free.  They have almost always been soaked in a flavor solution that usually containes caramel coloring, "soy" (wheat) sauce and other aditives.  If I am really hungry and must eat in a Chinese restaurant, I order plain white rice and steamed vegetables.  But even so, you must monitor it carefully.  The rice sometimes has other substances added to give it a better texture, and very often the vegetables have in fact had "just a little bit" of soy sauce added.  To be fair, celiac disease is hardly ever found in East Asians, so understandably people are not tuned it to it.  Also, culturally, with the exception of fruits, it is generally thought that the flavor of foods needs to be enhanced, so it is had to find anything natural even in the "western" gorceries. Even in the western restaurants, be careful.  Fish and meat and often vegetables are usually pre-marinated. I will not even attempt to address the issue of cross-comtamination, since that is a whole higher order of things. I do know what I am talking about; I have celiac and have worked here for nearly 7 years.
