Not eating and throwing up don't help you slim down. Cut portion sizes down, don't eat after dark, and get some exercise. Make all your own food, no fast foods or sweets, eat veggies and fruit. Start walking more and being active.

If you don't eat you get hungrier and may go on binges and overeat. If you throw up that won't help any either. Just eat fruits and other healthy foods. Try to eat small amounts throughout the day instead of larger meals. Also try to walk more that might help. Good luck :D

Have you tried talking to someone? Your parent, grandparent, sister,cousin, aunt?

Tell someone how you feel what is going on. Try an organized sport. Drink more water, study nutrition. You should get a check up from a doctor to see that your body is functioning properly.

You want to do something about your weight, that's good. Do it in a positive, informed way. You may even find that this could be a possible career focus for you. Start in the library and maybe a jumprope. Pretty nearly free, how much does a jumprope cost? If possible, walk to school instead of riding the bus.

Yes--not eating will make your metabolism slow down--thinking that it's starving. Thus, you will not only have the discomfort of not eating, but your body will cling to every calorie it can. That's why diet programs always stress eating breakfast to get your metabolism going and not skipping meals.

Do try to get some support from someone you can see face to face, as well--it doesn't need to be a parent, but try to find someone.

Anorexia and bulemia make obesity or being overweight worse. Once you stop vomiting or begin eating again after having anorexia or bulemia, your metabolism has changed and you gain more weight. I have several friends who are recovered from bulemia and have to live with being heavier than they were before they started because of all of the purging.

Other than that warning, please get some help. These disorders don't go away by themselves and you need someone guiding you and helping you through this. Do you have a trusted friend or guidance counselor? Family member?

The only healthy way to lose weight is to eat healthy and exercise. That isn't easy but if you have a good support group you can accomplish it.

Good luck and write us if you need more support.

    • Thank you cyclinglady! We'll just keep pushing forward and we'll get things figured out one way or another. You have been most helpful and informative and given me some great resources and things to consider. I really appreciate it! I definitely feel better as I've felt like a crazy mom lately thinking through the test results and everything. Even if it turns out to not be celiac or gluten related, at least I can say we did our due diligence and looked under every rock to find the source of his troubles. Thanks again!  Take care! 
    • Anxiety is quite a common symptom with undiagnosed celiacs. It should improve if not disappear when you go gluten free. Be sure to CONTINUE eating gluten until the endoscopy!   Welcome to the club!
    • Although serological tests are useful for identifying celiac disease, it is well known that a small minority of celiacs are seronegative, and show no blood markers for celiac disease. A team of researchers wanted to define the prevalence and features of seronegative compared to seropositive celiac disease, and to establish whether celiac disease is a common cause of seronegative villous atrophy.

    • This was absolutely me before diagnosis.  The worst of all of my Celiac symptoms occurred in the morning.  The anxiety was terrible in the mornings, I had horrible nausea, no appetite, felt light headed, dizzy and shaky, diarrhea, stomach cramps... the works.  Honestly, I don't know if it was the symptoms causing the anxiety, the anxiety making my symptoms worse, or a combination.  I almost dropped out of school because I felt so terrible every morning I didn't want to leave the house to go to class.  The first few doctors I saw insisted all of my symptoms were psychological and tried to give me anti-depressants/anti-anxiety meds, but I knew there was something else wrong with me.  I had always been a bit "high-strung," but for the year I was really sick before diagnosis, the anxiety got out of control. I was diagnosed with celiac disease 6 months ago and have been gluten free ever since.  It took time, but everything is gradually improving.  The morning anxiety is much improved and some mornings, is completely gone.  I realized a month or two ago that I no longer spend the first hour after waking up gagging and dry-heaving, something I had done for so many years that I just thought it was normal for me.  I can brush my teeth and my tongue without feeling like I'm going to puke.  I eat breakfast now, which I have never done, because I was always too anxious and nauseous in the mornings to be hungry.  I am not "all better."  I still have bad days and even bad weeks.  If I get glutened the anxiety comes back full force.  If I'm super-stressed out or letting my health slide (not eating well, not sleeping enough) the AM anxiety seems to return.  But, it has been slowly improving over the last 6 months and has become so much more manageable.   Your anxiety could be a separate disorder from the celiac disease, but for me, it seems it was absolutely related and continues to get better.  Don't get discouraged if you don't see an immediate improvement or experience relapses after improving.  Often, I feel like it's a two-step-forward, one-step-back kind of thing, but it is getting better.
    • I have suffered with GERD for 20 years and accidently found out it was a gluten intolerance. I had gone on Atkins years ago and noticed that I had no GERD symptoms while on the diet. I didn't make the connection at that time. Then I went on the Mayo Diet back in the winter and once again, the constant was having no bread primarily. I had also noticed that I would have major attacks anytime I ate Italian food. I blamed it on the onions, the tomatoes, herbs...but I could tolerate all those foods separately. Then, like a lightning bolt...it hit me...the culprit was the "innocent" pasta. BINGO!!  I went gluten-free in March 2016 and I have had no GERD now in 5 months. I feel as if it is a gift to me.
