Unsure Of What To Do..

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.:)

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.

    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      I was diagnosed a couple years ago and started gluten-free diet then. Test also showed damage to my small intestine. I explained to this doctor how I was barely able to get out of bed when I ate gluten in the pastand my intestines are still recovering from the damage. I only discussed this briefly. I consulted with this doctor concerning my dizziness explaining that I get dizzy/migraines when I eat gluten due to my celiac disease. I further explained that my dizziness has been cut in half since I went on a gluten-free diet so I am better able to get out of bed. The consult was about taking tests to figure out if something in my brain was causing my dizziness or this doctor specialized in testing the brain for impairments. In her summary, she stated that my memory impairments were probably due to being precoccupied with thinking about my psychosomatic symptoms. However, I only though about the test when I took it. And I only think about whatever task I am trying to remember when I try to remember it! I feel my symptoms rather than think about them all day long.
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      If you don't get the diagnosis you are happy with go to another doc.  Try to find a Celiac Friendly doc.  OR you can do what i did and give up and just go gluten free.  I didn't need a doctor to confirm that if my gas, bloating, migraines, depression, joint pain, rash, dry skin and brittle nails went away when i went gluten free that i must have celiac.  AND 6 months after i went gluten free on my own i had some blood tests repeated that i had done when they were trying to figure out what was causing my severe rash, all the things that were "wrong" with me or abnormal in the the first blood tests, went to normal on the second test.  INCLUDING MY THYROID LEVELS! Oh, i didn't mention that during this time they diagnosed me with early hashimotos.. 6 months later i was miraculously cured from this progressive thyroid disorder according to the blood test results.  I didn't have hashimotos to put it bluntly.   I am almost 10 years gluten free with no positive Celiac diagnosis.  But let me tell you this,  My daughter's neurologist did a DNA test on her 1 year after she too went gluten free and it came back positive for Celiac.  so.  js.     That's my story..  in short.

      Were you officially diagnosed with Celiac Disease at the time she wrote that?  And, if so, for how long were you diagnosed & gluten-free but still complaining of those symptoms?
    • Weird Reaction
      Hi Richie By the sounds of it you could have gluten sneaking in somewhere, or maybe blood sugar issues,  or just plain anxiety, but it would be good to know for sure so you know what to do next. I think maybe the best course of action would be to see your GP and  tell him/her all your symptoms.  Book a double appointment as we say in the UK (but that isn't always possible!)  I dread seeing my own GP because as lovely as she is she is very fond of sending me for blood tests (which always seem to include liver function, thyroid and full blood count) which for someone with health anxiety isn't the recipe for a peaceful night's sleep!  But she is right, those particular blood tests, and others, can hold important clues when one has a lot of vague symptoms.   Celiac testing is of course another set of tests, which Flowerqueen has described well above.    If you do have all these tests and anxiety continues to be a problem, whether caused by by celiac disease, another medical condition or just being a stand alone problem, one book that I would recommend that really helped me understand the condition is 'At Last a Life' by  Paul David. I found it an immensely helpful tool in my recovery.   There is also a website. http://anxietynomore.co.uk/   Keep us posted Cristiana

      Unfortunately I feel this may be common.  For 6 years I was told I was fine.  Lungs fine, chest fine, just anxiety.  It was not until I pressed the anemia issue that I got a blood test.  Now I am a bit of a squeaky wheel to my doctor.  She referred me to Mayo Clinic in Rochester MN which has a celiac center.  I will meet with Dr. Murray (who is a leader in celiac research) next Friday.  If nothing else, you could always come to Mayo Clinic.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
