Mario,

Sorry to hear that you are not doing as well as you had hoped. Maybe this is what your system needs for a while, is to pare things to a minimum and then start adding back.

I hope you get to feeling better.

Try getting some acidopholous to balance out the good bacteria in your colon and digestive enzymes to take with your meal to help absorb (any health food store will carry them). The amino acid glutamine would help to heal your gut as well.

I wish I had a nickel for every time I've said, "Why didn't my doctor suggest this or that...?" Believe me, you have to stay on these doctors left and right, they're just too busy with too many patients and simply don't know enough about celiac disease to begin with. Also, doctors generally won't suggest something like acidopholous, that's something you just should try on your own, and see if it works for you. I've heard it may cause more diarrhea, though, but that may be different for each person. I'm so sorry to hear you aren't absorbing properly, I'm not well either, and I know how that feels. Have you had the major tests such as floroscopy (a live x-ray that takes a look at the small bowel after drinking barium) to rule out a few more serious things? Or a CT scan? This is almost certainly diet-related, but it would give you peace of mind to rule out the big stuff. And both a floroscopy and a CT scan are non-invasive, so it's just a good idea to have those done if you're still having trouble.

Our doctor actually suggested acidopholus.. ok I can't spell it.. but anyway.. you should be able to get it in capsules at a good health food store. It should be stored in the fridge. I would suggest yogurt but most comercial yogurt even though it has acidopholus also has lactose which would probably be a problem. What are you drinking? I suggest apple cider and 100% grape juice both cut in half with water.

It's sad but doctors don't know a lot about natural therapies and how they can assist in digestion and healing.

I've found I need to educate myself and not rely on doctor's. I figured out I had celiac on my own after my doc said I had IBS.

    • Yes like a protein powder. I visit a local store there is so many brands and on every brand have write gluten free.that's way I confused which one is best any suggestions ! 
    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.

    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
