Hi Jay! :)

Soooooo glad to see you are doing better :) and that those supps we discussed are helping!! HOORAY!!

(just curious--did you ever get the other test results back?? must have been neg--good)

I know everyone's system is different, but the digestive enzymes and probiotics seem to help most of us.

I use Custom Probiotics and Enzymedica digestive enzymes.

I am really happy for you, kiddo!! ;)

You keep getting better and better!!

Cheers,

IH

Hi IrishHeart!!

Thank you soo much for all your help! you have given me hope and invaluable advice over the past few months your really sweet :) BTW My tests all came back NEG I still aint got my hair mineral analysis results back (due next week!)my doctor is almost convinced I suffer from CFS but I have told him I disagree as I know my problem stems in the GUT!!

I have also decided to ignore my weight loss and concentrate on healing my gut which in theory should calm my immune system down! My diet at the moment is very restricted i eat just boiled chicken and rice trying to ensure I eat small meals thoughout the day SLOWLY I have a terrible habbit of eating food wayy too fast it literally doesnt touch the sides which must be causing my digestive system so much stress! an I took your advice an ditched my old probiotics which contained bizarre ingrediants such as sulfites and gelatine and replaced them with the new ones mentioned above which are way more powerful and more importantly more natural! I feel about 60% which is not amazing but its a start considering the past few months ive wanted to jump off a bridge its been that bad! lol

How are you anyway? you recovering from the snickers incident? :P

Jay :)

60% better is AWESOME!! considering how lousy you felt, kiddo!!

WHOOOOOHOOO! Just hang in there---you're on your way!

yes,hon--- just forget where you've been--look forward!!! B) I was so emaciated and yellow and messed up at one point, I would not look at myself in the mirror. Six months later, I put on 13 lbs., some muscle (I had lost major muscle mass with those 90 lbs.) and now, I really see how reversing the malabsorption is helping me heal.

You may want to try to add in other foods...slowly....one at a time---so you can alternate food proteins. AVOID dairy, soy, coffee, citrus and raw veggies for now so your gut won't revolt!!Try a baked sweet potato! Poke some holes in it, place it in an oven proof dish (it will leak) and bake like a regular potato at 350 for 50 mins - hour. Yummy, full of antioxidants and vit. A and very digestible.

Ah, this is great news, Jay!! Please keep me posted!! I'm really thrilled for you.

And yes, the "Snickers incident" :blink: was an experiment that failed :( ...ah well...we just got some ridiculously sweet strawberries from a local farm--and man, I felt like I went to heaven. :)

    • Below is copied & pasted from this thread:   My celiac doctor is Dr. Syed Jafri, in Webster, TX (just south of Houston -- basically the Clear Lake City area), saved my LIFE.  I would recommend him to the whole, entire world.  I was desperately ill, and am still struggling, and he's a wonderful, sweet man who listens and is very proactive in helping you solve whatever problems you're having.  I wish all doctors were like him.  I have to fight and struggle with too many doctors to just listen to me and what I live with, day in and day out.  He's not like that.  Good luck to you.     There are recommendations on this thread too:  
    • I never worried about cross contamination because i was originally told i was just intolerant. after going gluten free i felt so much better up until this last march. dairy and fructose have been giving me problems but both lactose and fructose test came back negative.  this is what my gi doctor emailed me today 
    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • 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.
