What Good Things Have Happened To You Since Being Gluten Free
0

34 posts in this topic

Well, I can't prove it's due to the gluten-free diet...but my eye sight has always gotten gradually worse every year (since 3rd grade) I go to get my eyes checked. This year, they got better! How weird is that? Also, every time in the past when going to the dentist, they had to scrape my teeth a good amount, the last two times they have hardly had to touch my teeth other than to polish them. I'll take it! Other than that obviously feeling WAY better physically and emotionally since going gluten-free. :D

I love that! There is something so gratifying and rewarding about doing repairs, etc. around the house. Way to go!

A unique one for me is I don't mumble anymore. I used to mumble really bad and people couldn't understand me and phone calls were annoying for both me and the person I was talking too because they couldn't hear me and I got tired of repeating myself. About a month in my Mom commented on the phone, "Jason, I heard every word you just said clear as day" instead of "are you sure the phone is by your mouth?" I never would have thought of that. So add that to anxiety levels dropped, always being sick gave me a fear of dying and leaving my young children alone and that is much better, headaches, dizziness (nothing worse then feeling dizzy all the time), asthma is better, and of coarse the GI issues are much better as well. When I couldn't figure out what was wrong with me, my wife used to say when she put her ear to my stomach it sounded like boiling water with rapid bubbling and popping. I am so glad that is gone.

I'm on week 5 of being gluten free. I don't have to go to the bathroom as much but still don't have normal stools. Earlier this week I was having stomach cramps in the evening. I don't think I glutened myself as I've been eating the same stuff and hadn't had symptoms before. I hope my brain comes back too.

    • Annual celiac antibody testing is, in my opinion (and based on what celiac researchers have published), is critical, especially for a 12 year old.  Life is going to get harder for her.  Peer pressure is huge (I have a 15 year old daughter), and remaining diet compliant can be tough.   In Dr. Fasano's, Gluten Freedom, he discusses a young patient who became ill in high school after being gluten free for years.  His parents were perplexed.  Dr. Fasano took the young man aside and he confessed that while on a date, he didn't want to bring up his celiac disease.  So, he ate pizza.  He was too embarrassed to tell his parents.   My daughter does not have celiac disease.  She was first tested two years ago.  Since she is symptom free, is not anemic and her other lab work is fine, we'll wait to test her in another year.  It all depends on the patient, but every few years, testing is recommended for all undiagnosed first-degree relatives.   It certainly sounds like your younger children should be screened.   I wish you both well!      
    • Perhaps you should consider asking for a GI referral.  You might just skip the blood tests and go directly to an endoscopy/biopsies while you are still consuming gluten.  It is the "gold" standard for a celiac diagnosis anyway!   Here's the deal with going gluten free.  You can do it.  It costs nothing, but you must give it six months or longer.  You'd need to think like a celiac, but it can be done!  I'll tell you my tale.  My hubby went gluten-free 15 years ago per the very poor advice of his GP/PCP and my allergist.  After a year of mistakes and learning, he got well.  It worked!  Thirteen years later, I was formally diagnosed.  (It was a shock as I was only anemic at the time.)  Hubby would be the first to say that I have had way more support from family, friends and medical.  I must say, it's nice to see those lab results.  It really helped me adhere to the diet in the beginning too.   So, you know your medical situation.  You must do what's best for you!   I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I'm sure going to have a long talk with my doctor.  Then I'll find a new one that will support me and make sure that my daughter and I both have the proper testing done yearly.  
    • also:  glutendude - i don't get it.  shouldn't it be glutenfreedude?  lolz i eat out few and far between.  most of the times i've been glutened it's been eating out.  this weekend i'm getting my bacon cheeseburger on at red robin  i always get my 'good' waitress - lucky, i guess, paula takes good care of me   and i will eat at bonefish but they have a limited 'safe' menu.  look for places that have the 'GiG'  training they know their stuff.  mellow mushroom, melting pot, california pizza kitchen, pf changs are all supposed to be trained that way.  they know to avoid cc and change their gloves, etc.  
    • I have Common variable immune deficiency (CVID) which has impaired my IgA and my IgG. I have infusions monthly for immunoglobulins. I had a blood test for celiac which showed negative however, I have nearly every celiac symptom. Everything else I have been tested for and believe me I have been tested. Kidneys, Gallbladder, emptying studies, and on and on have all been o.k.    I did go partially gluten free once a long while ago and I did feel better. I wonder if I just go gluten free if it would make a big difference.
