Cysts Went Away!
0

9 posts in this topic

I self-diagnosed gluten intolerance a year ago and went to a gluten-free diet. Gradually, all kinds of small irritations I had had but not connected to gluten went away. For years I had breast cysts and was getting an ultrasound every summer. Time came for this one. Guess what? No cysts! 13 months into going gluten-free I now have one thing which changed that is provable by lab report. This was not even something that I thought was related, but it must be one of those systemic inflammation things. Anyone else have such an experience?

Yes, most definitely.

I have had two lumps of tissue (I read that they are cysts) for about 25 years (about the same time as I was experiencing all these problems). They are now shrinking a lot. I expect them to go away within the year, I hope.

Inflammation can very systemic!!

I've had cyst problems for a year or so (got them ultrasounded and everything). They've gone away since I went gluten-free. I had no idea it could be related!

I really noticed mine shrinking after I'd been gluten-free about nine or ten months (the first few months I kept discovering new things that had gluten in them). Keep up that diet! Hope they go away for you as well!

Okay, don't want to rain on anyone's wonderful cyst-free happiness parade but, I had terrible fibrocystic breasts ALL of my life. They finally are not bothering me after being gluten-free for over 3 years. Just wanted to add that so people who may have been sick for a long time, prior to diagnosis would not get discouraged when they aren't "cured" quickly.

I was always getting called back for extra mammo films and ultrasounds, had four neg. biopsies; since gluten free 1 year have had no further callbacks.

    • Welcome!   You were smart to think about cross contamination.  Although it is great that there are so many gluten-free options out there, in the beginning it is best to try a whole foods diet, until your son feels a bit better.  The learning curve for the gluten-free diet is steep.  It is better for you to get everything down before letting others feed him.   When I was diagnosed, my hubby had been gluten free for 12 years.  I thought I knew the drill and converted right over to those gluten-free goodies I baked him.  Turned out, like many of us, I had some food inolerances not related to gluten but as a result of gut damage.  So, additives like Xantham gum made me think I was getting glutened, but I was not.  So, again, try to stick to naturally gluten free foods that are less processed for a while.  When you do venture out, I use "find me gluten free" and read the reviews from celiacs (not a person who thinks gluten-free is a way to lose weight! )   Here are some great tips from out Newbie 101 thread:  
    • I have the same problem. Was told it was psoriasis but no treatments worked even injections. I was daignosed celiac in may, and noticed a year ago the palm of my hand would itch intensely then get small blisters. I believe they are both dh. Have been gluten-free since diagnosis but still have issues with both areas. Thankful digestive issues cleared but would love to know how long before they clear up? I hope we both get feed back and best wishes to you!
    • Yes it most certainly could be a false negative, and I would bet you a dozen donuts that it is (gluten free, of course.   )  At the very least you can be sure it is related to gluten.  These gluten rashes take forever to clear up.  I don't know about you, but whenever I start to doubt my gluten intolerance, I just look at my skin, and the old blood stains on my sheets, and I am reassured that it's not all in my head, and I need to avoid gluten as if it were a bucket of battery acid.
    • Hello, My fiance and I are going to Singapore for our honeymoon next year and I was wondering if anyone knew any cafes/restaurants etc that have gluten-free dishes? We previously went two years ago and enjoyed ourselves so much that we definitely wanted to go back our our honeymoon. Catch is I got diagnosed as being gluten intolerant a few months ago, negative for Coeliac though. If I eat gluten I have bad nausea, bloating, diarrhea etc. Not pretty for a honeymoon :-) I am more than happy to eat fruit at breakfast and make do with steamed rice at dinner etc but if anyone has any ideas on anywhere I can safely eat that would be much appreciated. I don't care how much it costs! Also is it possible for me to bring packaged gluten-free food into Singapore from Australia? I am not sure on the rules. Thank you!!
    • Went in and talked to the manager of our pm and asked about the gluten free pizza, and he told me he can't guarantee its 100% gluten free because of the flour in the air from the other crusts being made.  I value the honesty.   The other employee also mentioned changing gloves.   I was thinking wow great, until I walked out and got to thinking about cross contamination from everyone grabbing the toppings out of the same bins and spreading the sauce with the same utensils.    My son was just diagnosed this week so we are new to the whole lifestyle.   So any help or info is greatly appreciated.    Thanks
