I have had celiac for 10 years and for 2 years ago I got a huge antibiotic dose and I got very bad and I know have dysbioses, leaky gut ++ I have been on strict SCD for 10 months and have shown great improvement. Specially after starting with digestive enzymes in December. I am now able to eat 10 soft vegetables, meat and some type off sea food without getting pain and bms are good.

I am going to take a CDSA stool test to see if I (and my doctor) can figure out what is wrong with my gut (there is something more then only celiac..). But before I going to take CDSA I need to be medication free for 2 days and not take medication and supplements when I take the test (to days). So total of 4 days with out any enzyme or medication.. And because my stomach is very slow it will be best to be 3 days without enzymes.. So that will be 5 days without anything.

I just started with Bio Gest and S.A.T and I has really helped me. I have been able to introduce new food and I am able to DIGEST fat! I eat the chicken skin now and I donít get any pain and the BM is very good. Before if I tried eating skin I got bloated stomach and floating poop with undigested food pieces.

Now I am taking digestive enzyme to every meal and S.A.T + Bio Gest to meals that are higher then ĒnormalĒ in fat (for me).

I am just so unsure what to do because I want to take the test. But I donít want to stop enzyme because I get pain.

Iím just so confused :(

The stool test can tell you a lot, so it might be worth a bit of suffering to have it done. Just lay off the foods that normally set you off, like the chicken skin - you really don't need that anyway, use herbs and spices to give it good flavor. Eat sparingly so you don't over load your system and give it easy to digest foods, no cruciferous vegetables, no raw food; eat apple sauce, rice pudding, fin fish, cooked veggies and rice, skinless chicken, canned fruits. Hey, you can do this for a few days, really you can.:)

Antibiotics are notorious for killing all our good bacteria, which assist digestion in our small intestines. Digestive enzymes can help somewhat with protein and fat digestion. However, you may have very low levels of good bacteria or even some bad bugs (bacteria, parasites or fungus like candida) which moved into the space created when the antibiotic killed both bad and good bugs in your gut.

The stool test should indicate your levels of good bacteria and whether you have any bad bugs which you will need to treat. If you take more antibiotics (or antiparastic or antifungal drugs), you will need to take high dose probiotics both during and after treatment in order to prevent another gut bug infection. A good stool test lab will also test whatever gut bugs they find for sensitivites to specific drugs or herbal supplements which can kill those bugs.

I've had 8 different gut bugs (5 bacteria, 2 parasites and candida) during the past 8 years. I always take high dose probiotics during and after treatment for any gut bugs.

I use the SCD too and have been able to tolerate more foods. A few months ago I started eating goat's milk yogurt and no longer have to take probiotics or betaine to acidify my stomach. The gas and bloating problem has almost gone away after using Candida Herbs and Neem. I've had to flush out my gall bladder (liver flushes) and improve my bile pool by using gluten-free oat bran with meals. I avoid antibiotics when possible and use well tested natural methods of improving my digestion. I often visit the Forums at Curezone to see what has worked for other people.
