Exhaustion, Anemia, Gi/flatulence/headaches
Posted 03 November 2011 - 11:09 AM
Eggs and cheese can be migraine triggers, but cheese is not so bad now. Doc wants to send me for tests. He put me on iron tablets and said it may take 3-4months to feel better. They want to find out what is making me anemic by putting a camera down my throat and taking a biopsy for celiac - which would mean taking bread beforehand for a while to show up in tests.
within 2-3days of going gluten free, my GI/flatulence gone, nausea gone, headaches radically reduced. So am happy to stay on this although it's going to cost a fortune.
Sourdough bread seems to keep coming up as a good idea. I love bread, cakes and biscuits, but since going gluten free, the substitute bread seems a lot more filling so you eat less of it. I put on over 2stone this last six months to. is sudden weight gain normal?
Am thinking of doing a hair test for intolerances, to idenitfy things properly, any thoughts on this?
My doc gave my some peppermint oil tablets to try 1/2hour before food, which seem to help. also I'm taking the Acidophilus

Just remember you have to be eating gluten for at least 2 months prior to testing for celiac. Tests are not real reliable so if they come back negative don't worry. You can go on a gluten-free diet yourself to see if your condition improves. I have a feeling buyt your symptoms that gluten is the problem and I think you will be surprised what happens when you get off and stay off.
I don't think I can put my body through that again, I was soooo ill to the point of vomiting..I thought just a week or two would be enough to show up. I feel 100% better just after a week on gluten free. It does seem very common to have anemia pre diagnosis from what I've read on here and internet.
What do most people do about bread? do you bake your own? what do you think about gluten free sourdough bread?
