Quick Hello
0

8 posts in this topic

Just wanted to say a quick hello. I was out of town for a week with no PC and then Saturday got hit with a stomach/head/body virus. Needless to say it has wiped me out and I have not been able to even sit at the computer. I am still recovering from it and feel awful but at least I didn't have anything with gluten. Imagine how much worse off I would have been. I remember times when I would get sick but never get better.........that's because I was encouraged to eat cereal/bagels for breakfast even when I wasn't hungry......just to keep up my strength! who knew? The gut problem I am dealing with now is the irritation from Advil Liquid Gels ( i checked them out and they are gluten-free) which I know will get better in a few days. I am sure that this bug is starting to leave my body!! yeah!

Hope you are all hanging in there!

Happy Memorial Day!

thanks for the well wishes...........My gut is still sore and sensitive.....My IBS has acted up from all of this. I guess I have to baby it for a few days. I tried eating lentils!!!!...big mistake..oh my gosh........I was so bloated for 2 days and then yesterday had some chips that blew me up too......(no gluten but I think the oil got me). Temporarily back on zelnorm and zantac...(just for a few days to help it along)

kaiti, I noticed you have a new picture up.........boy you look great! who is the other person in the picture?

OK....gonna try to get out of the house today. so much for memorial day weekend!

Take care guys, :rolleyes:

The picture is kind of fuzzy so it doesn't look like it should but it's good enough that I'm not gonna mess with it lol.

The girl in the picture with me is my best friend chelsey. :D

Mel-how are you feeling now? Maybe you can do things this coming weekend that you would have done over memorial day weekend.

Hi kaiti,

i was actually in Miami for a week right before Memoral day and got back that thurs. Who knows....maybe I caught something on the plane!

the weather was nice and the beach was magnificent! We went to the new Hard rock Casino and of course south beach and then my niece's high school graduation. I took my brother and his wife for a few days too and it was a blast...in spite of the dietary challenges. My IBS has been acting up big time but I tried not to let it get me down...I wore loose things and didn't eat too much...but when the spasms hit boy were they bad.

all in all..........a good time!

hope your holiday was good too!

    • Hi Lisa, I completely understand why you didn't do a biopsy on your daughter.  I went through the appendix thing myself...not fun!  I was diagnosed with just bloodwork and no biopsy, but did have the full panel.  I would go back to your PCP and ask for a full panel to include TTG, EMA and DGP tests.  Since she was already willing to test you, I'm sure she would be willing to order these.  Good luck!
    • What a gross title–it bothers me and I wrote it! It wasn't my idea originally. The research paper the data came from was entitled, "Experimental hookworm infection and gluten microchallenge promote tolerance in celiac disease" published recently in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology.

    • katesyl.........this is an older topic so the OP most likely won't answer.  I can, however, offer a piece of advice for you. Just going gluten free will probably not drive your inflammation markers down into normal.  It does depend on how high they were to begin with but with all autoimmune diseases, there will be inflammation going on forever.  Get used to wonky blood work because most of us will have that issue. I have 4 autoimmune diseases in total and, although I have driven certain inflammatory markers way down, my recent sed rate number was elevated.  The normal is supposed to be 30 and under in a woman my age but mine is 50.  With 4 AI diseases, I doubt it will ever be normal and I don't let it bother me. I am not willing to take major meds at all and use more natural anti-inflammatory supplements.  You can do whatever you feel comfortable with in regards to treatment but don't expect normal numbers with Celiac Disease. Inflammation will improve but normal?  Most people never get there completely.
    • My daughter's PCP did not go against anything, she offered to do the biopsy - I was the one opposed to it. My DD, who was 10 at the time had just spent 3 weeks in the hospital, very sick with a ruptured appendix, then had 2 surgeries a few months after. I didn't see the need to put her through anything else with her numbers so high and all the classic symptoms. Apparently, in some other countries, if your numbers are all high, they forego biopsy. Anyway, I was really asking about myself and whether I should push for add'l testing. I am still new this this and trying to get up-to-date and wasn't sure if my PCP should conduct other blood tests before I go completely gluten-free. I have been somewhat gluten-free, but not entirely. I have no problem going gluten-free, but want to make sure that I am doing it for the right reasons. I wasn't sure if the Gliadin Abs IgA was sufficient to point to Celiac and possibly doing a biopsy for me. Or if additional blood test would make more sense.   Thanks!!
    • I would like to know if you have found out the source of your inflammation yet. I'm gluten free three years but my inflammation test was high.
