I have not had a cramp, emergency potty trip or bout of D in 5 days!!!

gluten-free, carb and sugar light. 1 librax at night (can't take it 3x a day. It has valium in it and that just throws me for a loop), 1 probiotic in the morning.

When I mean carb light I mean really light. I am mostly back to whole foods, eggs, boarshead bacon, beans, lean meats, Lots of veggies, watermelon (other fruits kinds tear up my mouth). I have also been dairy light but not on purpose. Not sure if that means something.

I am just so happy that I have been able to go to the store without praying someone isn't in the bathroom!

Oh and I've lost 11 lbs in the past couple of months.

Oh I have been dxed with High blood pressure but on meds for that now too.

So have you eliminated all grains? Potatoes? or just some? I would be interested in knowing. :)

Isn't it heavenly not planning your day by access to bathrooms? I (and I am sure many others) am so happy for you.

Hurray!!! Sounds like we're on a similar diet (although mine is technically SIBO) - basically whole foods, protein in the form of fish, chicken broth, or eggs, and lots of cooked veggies and fruits. It's working for me too!

Mushroom- Not entirely. I will make like a banana bread and eat a piece (rice flour) once a week. I made pizza the other night and ate several pieces but that is the only grain carb I've had all week. I've given up all the waffles, pancakes, bread, crackers etc. I find I don't really miss them though.

Now things like potato, although carb, do not react in my body like grain carbs do. I eat a LOT of potato. Usually baked. One every other day maybe. I also eat carrots. I seem to have no problem from veggie carb, only grain carb. *shrug* Im not going to try to understand why lol. If it works, I'm stickin with it!

That's great, I'm glad for you! I'm mostly grain-free(I'm getting there). I still eat white rice maybe once or twice a week. I use a lot of non-grain(buckwheat and quinoa are okay on the grain-free diet, they're not grains). I do feel better too.

Yay yay yay yay yay! Congats! I'm in a similar boat...been feeling great for over a month now! I'm trying to not let "pessimistic" Heather back into my brain, but it's still hard. My paranoia runs deep because my symptoms of glutening are so intense!

Good job again, and good job for staying vigilant! Mad props to you!

Since Lucia is not around, it stands for Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth.

Hurray! It's great to find what works. It makes it so much easier to stick to it when you feel much better. :)

    • I am sorry that you are sick!   Unfortunately, all celiac testing requires you to be on gluten.  😔.   Testing is usually not over until you get an actual diagnosis, but it appears that you may very well have celiac disease.    Here is more information: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ http://theceliacmd.com/2015/06/six-reasons-to-test-for-celiac-disease-before-starting-a-gluten-free-diet-3/ in the meantime, you can eliminate dairy products temporarily.  It may provide some relief.  
    • Karen, the iodine test was a test for DH used in the 'olden' days. Iodine would be swabbed onto a spot and then it would be covered with a bandage. If someone had DH the iodined area would break out in lesions. I don't know how but we do know iodine can activate the antibodies. That is why some of us with DH have to avoid iodine in foods until the antibodies have cleared the dermis. OP, if you haven't been tested for celiac you should be and if you have active lesions a biopsy done next to a lesion by a DH knowledgable dermatologist may help in diagnosis.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!
