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.:)

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.

    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
    • I don't have a lot of faith in the allergy testing naturalpaths do. I had them done, but really it wasn't very helpful. Foods that were okay on the blood work- I was still having obvious reactions to. Skin testing through an allergist didn't show up food allergies either. I agree the food elimination diet is a better way to go and doesn't cost a bunch of money. I did a whole 30 diet a while back that could have been helpful if the foods I reacted to were corn, dairy,  soy, grains and sugar- but I react to more than that.  I do need to do a major elimination diet- just haven't gotten up the willpower yet.   
    • Quick search gave too many responses to TGI Fridays but none to TGI Fridays Buns (or similar) so... I was talking with my sister-in-law (Gluten Intolerant) and she spoke highly of a pre-packaged bun from Fridays. I was hesitant but she gave me one (apparently you can buy them from the restaurant?) and I tried it. Since I'm slow to react I won't know about gluten for a bit but I can definitely say it is the closest to "real" I've had in years! Spongy, doesn't crumble while eating a sandwich and tastes good. Color me impressed! I tried to determine the manufacturer or if Fridays actually makes them but I can't locate anything worth pursuing. Anyone have information on this? Thanks in advance.
    • Thanks cyclinglady! I will!
    • You could ask the allergist to give you a starting point for an elimination diet. You would start out with 5 or so foods and then add in one new food a week to see if you react. If you react you of course drop that food. It is a bit of a pain as everything has to be basically single ingredient to start.  My allergist felt that was the best way to go and more accurate than blood testing.
