Hi CreekPrincess, I'd love to know how you got on with the specialist. My biopsy has shown mild intraepithelial lymphocytosis including intraepithelial lymphocytes on the tips of my villi - doctor is suggesting Celiac but blood test came back negative. Would love an update from any of you in the same position.:-)
..."Harvard, UCSD, and the American College of Gastroenterology all agree that stool tests are simply not sensitive or specific enough methods in screening for celiac disease...."
Vitamin deficiencies may delay healing. Ask your doctor to test for deficiencies!
Many Celiacs have poor absorption for an extended period of time and their vitamin stores get depleted. Some vitamins can't be stored and must be absorbed every day. Yet with poor absorption, eating enough to make up for a deficiency is very difficult.
Vitamin deficiencies can cause other health problems. CyclingLady had anemia due to a vitamin B12 deficiency. I had a niacin deficiency that caused pellagra. A deficiency of vitamin D causes depression. Vitamin A deficiency causes nightblindness.
Check with your doctor!
Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you? Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉 Do you know how to fix it? You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do
Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Here is the link if you have never watched it.
