i have for the last 6 or so weeks had really bad diarrhea and lightheadedness etc however if i eat chicken and potatoes only then i seem to be ok for example last night i had some burgers that are

shaped with textured wheat protein

and spaghetti and chips or fries for americans lol now the only part i didnt eat was the chips/fries and about 3 - 5 minutes after eating i felt like vesuvius had erupted in my stomach and off i ran for the worst episode i have ever had in my life of diarrhea i have never had any food related problems before but i find it wierd that if i eat chicken and potatoes im fine but such as last nites meal well lets just say i wont doing an encore :blink: :(

Only one way to know for sure...get tested. Start by asking your doctor about the celiac panel of blood tests. He/she will probably want to check a few hundred other things as well. If you have enough damage, the blood work will be positive and you can move on with your life. Personally, I would not let them do another biopsy on me if I had known then what I know now, but each person has to work with their doctor to make the best choices for their own health.

Read a lot on this site. You may find yourself in many of our stories with many symptoms you had not even thought to associate with the stomach concerns.
