Unsure Of What To Do..

5 posts in this topic

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 don

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 don't 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 "normal" in fat (for me).

I am just so unsure what to do because I want to take the test. But I don't want to stop enzyme because I get pain.

I'm 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.:)

Carrots

Green peas

Green beans

This vegetable needs to be boiled for 45 minutes

Butternut squash

Kabocha squash

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.

    • That uncle bens 10minute brown rice with the gluten free table on the box, i been going through hell these last few days, this shit is Not gluten free its contaminated 
    • Mnoosh,    Can you give us a link to the article you read about the increased risk after being diagnosed and maintaining a strict gluten-free diet??       IMO,   You are over reacting to a misprint or most likely a misread article.
    • Yes!  With dairy, celiacs can often have a temorary lactose intolerance due to damaged intestinal villi (where the enzymes normally are released to digest lactose).  Of course you could be naturally lactose intolerant based on race or age.  It is best to stick to a whole foods diet while you are healing.  Really, is ice cream or potato chips going to provide you with nutritional value?  Stick with naturally gluten free foods like meat, fish, fats,  veggies (even those with carbs like sweet potatoes or winter squash) and fruit.  Avoid that processed junk as you may react to the additives right now.  Later, you can add back in dairy (test) and other foods you miss and crave.   Good luck!  
    • Take a deep breath and calm down!    The incidence of cancer with Celiac Disease is rare.......it can happen but the vast majority of people never have that experience.  You may have somewhat enlarged lymph nodes due to inflammation from undiagnosed Celiac but that will all calm down and go away once you get going on the diet.  Believe me, there are many of us that have things happen during the diagnosis and early recovery period and everything turned out just fine.  There is an elevated risk for some cancers with Celiac but that risk goes back to that of the general population after a couple of years on the gluten-free diet. I cannot remember the exact time frame but it is somewhere between 2-4 years, I think.  So many of us went years without a diagnosis and when it was all figured out, we have gone on to be healthy with little complications.  Really...do  not worry about this.  Concentrate on learning all the ins and outs of this disease and how to live gluten free happily.  We are here to help you and guess what? The diet is not as bad as some make it out to be. Many things can be made gluten free and are every bit as good as their gluten counterparts. The diet may not be convenient but it is not hard. I would not lie to you!   
    • Well....one common symptom that most celiacs have when they are diagnosed (or undiagnosed) is anxiety.  So, there is a risk of cancers, but science has demonstrated that that risk goes down on a gluten free diet (if you have celiac disease).  In goes down to the same risk as those without celiac disease.   I kind of was a basket case.  I drive my family a bit crazy because I was anxious.  I felt a bit stupid too.  I guess I had a little brain fog going on too.  All that resolved after I healed. Welcome to the fourum.  Read our Newbie 101 thread under "Coping" (pinned at the top of the page) and learn about hidden sources of gluten and cross contamination.  I think most of us do not worry about cancer. We mourn the freedom to eat anything anywhere!   I did not have swollen lymph nodes, but I am sure others have and they did not have cancer.  Hopefully, they will chime in and set your mind at ease.  If not, you can search for "lymph nodes" at the top of the page (little magnifying glass).  There are lots of members with the same issue!
