First the smart A remark: That will be attractive to women!

Now you get my Mom remark: What have you learned from this, Dear?

I wanted to bring a couple out of town friends to the best pizza place in my town...and I was also kind of curious what would happen after 6 weeks gluten-free... all that really happened was I got extremely bloated and felt kinda feverish...weird :blink:

I'm back on the wagon now...kinda concerned about an upcoming vacation, but I'll just be extra careful! :o

Don't cheat Deltron! A pizza place is a danger zone. There's flour that goes airborn and settles on everything. :o Your friends won't take your diet seriously if it appears that you can can go off and on it?

PS..I kind of like a guy with long arms. You'd be handy for reaching things on the top shelf of the cabinet. ;)

Hmm...yes it would appear some of my neuro symptoms have also resurfaced...I guess even occasional "cheating" is not worth it!

Good point...I'd never let my close friends see me eat gluten...these were out of towners I was trying to impress at the expense of my health lol.

Doh! I forgot to add...once I went gluten-free my blood pressure lowered on it's own. I was able to quit taking my blood pressure meds. I guess the inflammation that gluten causes can raise one's blood pressure?

Nope, occasional cheating is NEVER worth it---it just reboots the autoimmume response. Neuro issues are the SLOWEST to resolve, so those ugly buggers last a few weeks. :blink: I hate that anxiety stuff...yuck.

I'll give you my "mom" tsk, tsk (waggling my finger) and then say---"Hope you learned your lesson, young man!!" :lol: Seriously, though---not a good idea to ingest gluten, okay??

As for impressing people---yeah, but what if you had to leave the table suddenly to vomit or "expell" something?? THAT would be very impressive, huh?? :rolleyes: So attractive. <_<

You have a serious condition that requires care, hon--I know, you are probably in your 20's and think you are bullet proof (yeah, I was once, too

and wouldn't have given a rat's butt about such things--smoke, drink, whatever,,,,I thought, nothing can hurt me :lol: ) but kiddo, please don't mess with gluten anymore. Live a good, long healthy life!!

Be well--be happy---now, that's attractive ;)

I hope that happens with me! It only seems logical inflammation would cause higher blood pressure... I'm getting a BP monitor so I will keep an eye on it.

I would also like to get off my GERD meds someday too although that's a bit more doubtful b/c I think I have some mechanical issues that are unlikely to change. :blink:

I have been on PPI med for a long time for severe GERD. Since I think my gluten and soy were causing it, I recently asked my new Dr. if he thought I could try going off the PPI? He said to give it a try and use an H2 blocker like Zantac if really needed.

Those GERD meds can cause all sorts of bad side effects,especially with long term use, so I hope you can get to where you can try going off them too.

Thanks for the info...I'm going to ask my doctor about that. I don't want to take PPI's for the rest of my life. I already have Osteopenia as it is.

Just a little update on my progress for you folks:

All inclusive resort buffets are the devil!!! Eat at your own risk! :ph34r:

Not sure yet, but it seems like I've got an enlarged spleen...I have an ultrasound scheduled. I can't help but suspect it's Celiac related.

Cross your fingers for me!!! :blink:

Hi Good to see more guys. I havent been diagnosed with celiac, but I am pretty sure I am gluten sensitive. I figure it out a few years ago but kept backsliding. Cant resist my toast!

Started agin Jan first and getting better slowly-I am 52 so it will take longer.

I also have GERD, anxiety, hypertension, I.B.S., A.D.D. (real bad as an adolescent), and sleep apnea.All are improving. The worst is the big hard distended belly but it is beginning to soften up. At my age I dont expect to get washboard abs. Looking back I lived on toast, and my Granny fed me her delicious home baked bread. I was the only kid that 'had to lie down and take a nap' after eating it!

Well, a bunch of organs I had were enlarged due to celiac--really, my GB, Spleen, liver, pancreas, thyroid--I had all kinds of "itisis"--so it is possible. Inflammation can cause lots of problems. :rolleyes:

Fingers crossed, of course!

Are you sticking to your diet, kiddo?

Yup, I've got all those symptoms too! It's nice to know there are other people out there going through the same thing.

I've probably got a lot of other 'enlarged' organs in my sizable abdomen... I've only been getting fatter since going gluten free though...I guess I need to cut back a bit on the hard cider haha.

I've been sticking to the diet except for the few transgressions noted above, although my diet could still use some work!

You are the only one that controls what goes in your mouth, kiddo.

You have got to be more careful!! This is not something to mess with.

You know this already because we already "Mommed" you enough with it.

But I do hope your spleen is okay. Keep us posted.

Good news! My spleen and other organs all appear to be normal. I think my guts are just going through a lot of upheaval since I went gluten-free. I may also be getting some cross contamination, but I'm usually very careful.

It's been 4 months now gluten-free and the doctor says all my gluten markers are coming way down.

    • I was only asking because when ferritin is low that you can experience hair loss/fatigue etc. even if your other iron levels are in range. This just happened to me so I thought I would share just in case it helps you. Ferritin should be above 50 to be optimal, not just "in range."  I've been on iron supplements and much better now. This may not be your problem at all, but I would have them check your ferritin levels. Low iron or anemia is common with celiac. The ferritin test is measuring how much iron is stored in your body. FYi: Iron binding capacity is really telling you how much protein your liver is making in order to carry that iron around. Usually, iron binding capacity will be higher in the range when iron is low. Edit: Also my blood pressure was low when my ferritin level got very low.
    • Hello I'm happy to join, any help is greatly appreciated as it can be difficult by times for sure. Unfortunately, I have been told my doctor has definitely not been doing anything correctly and very backwards about Alot of things. I live in canada, and there are celiac support groups I have found but I am about 2 hours away from any. I live in a pretty rural area. Although,  I have still received some help from them , they prefer a diagnosis before helping out to much. My doctor has me on a waiting list to see a gastrointestinal specialist but whenever I called her office to inquire about an appointment time I was told there was a very long wait and that I was considered to be a non emergency. So I am waiting to get an appointment. I have seen a dermatoligist for some of my rashes and she said it was dermatitis and gave me different creams for them.  It is frustrating because I don't know how to go about getting a actual diagnosis besides this biopsy. I was told to request a different specialist, but supposedly there is a waiting period for most in our area. 
    • Thanks for all of the replies. I've just found out I'm not getting to see a dietician because of not having a definite diagnosis which is another blow. I've had loads of bloods done but they just say they're all normal. I did have low vitamin D and high parathyroid but it's sorted itself out after a course of high dose vitamin D and they're not checking it again for a year. No chance of getting referred to endocrinology, gastro won't do it and neither will my gp. I've tried giving up coffee and all fizzy juice and it hasn't made a difference. I'm exhausted and scared and still have no clue what to do next. My gp has zero experience dealing with this type of thing - last time I was there she said it could be because I've restricted my diet too much and I should eat more gluten-free replacement products - everything I've read online says this is the worst thing to do! I'm asking for a copy of the last blood results this week so I can go through them myself but other than that I'm pretty stuck. 
    • I really am iffy on talking about this side of my gluten issues, I think I am about to ruin my reputation on this forum coming about as some extreme crazy guy saying this but I wanted to get this off my chest and perhaps see if anyone else might share a similar trauma. I get emotional recalling it, this side of my reactions, as it is most ingrained and very traumatizing experience, and I am not proud of it as the mentality I have now disgust me but I am going to come out about it. One of the scariest things in this world is when your own mind turns against you, when you can not think about what you want to think about, when you can not do what you know you should be able to do. When I got glutened really bad these where things I felt with my own mind would start looping, and thoughts would not come together. I would loose comprehension, feel like I know I should be able to think about something but my mind was not working. The same thing looped over and over and over like a broken record, This led to anger, anxiety, depression, panic, top it off with loss of feeling in my hands and feet, and the pains in the gut......it was a nightmare. I would go as far as beating my head against walls and punching them out of frustration as to why my own body and mind where not working, I just wanted it to end the pain to stop. I still have scars on my fist from punching into a nail in a stud once and kept going.....I scared everyone and myself distanced my self from loved ones. And started running a bucket list accepting that I was going to die soon. Hell to this day parts of the brain damage seem to be permanent as I can no longer do computer programing or some forms of math, they just no longer make any sense or connect. Then we learned what was causing it, and once the symptoms started to fade, I would get very angry if someone in the shared house did something stupid and got me sick again. The fear of going back to that caused violent and drastic actions to get away from what was making me sick. The sheer fear of my own mind turning on me led me to drastic actions to prevent it, throwing everything away I thought could make me sick, making sure no one else used that kitchen, used freezer paper and gloves when fixing my foods and working in there. I really destroyed and burned all bridges I had then and alienated myself from others. In the end it motivated me to learn how to cook, to get and renovate my own apartment in a building downtown, and start a business to pay for my new diet, by selling safe food to others with this issues locally at farmer markets. But it changed me on a very deep level, that traumatic experience to this day I have a issue looking at others and dealing with other humans who eat that stuff.......the stuff that breaks my mind and body so horrifically. If I have to compare it to something its like watching aliens drinking antifreeze and eating poison.....it causes a subconscious level of disgust and slight envy. I really can not even look at the stuff without recall what it does and feeling a twitch. I know I am the alien here, but it feels vise versa, and I look down on the normal people as odd creatures.  I go to the store and find myself overly avoiding contamination, keeping stuff in my own bags, asking the cashier to scan and bag it as I pass it not letting it touch that flour I see on the belt. I am hyper sensitive to the stuff I know and that fear semi dominates my mind as crazy as it sounds.  I am recovering and am forcing myself to try to mingle with other humans overlooking that one thing, but that deep rooted trauma still flares up as a protective measure especially around foods.  I could talk on and on about the other side effects but this one is the hardest to talk about it, and I feel others might be able to relate to it.    
    • Time.  You need time to heal.  Yeah, I am like a broken record!  😄 So...Lycra is your best friend for now (that and old baggy sweats!).  Hang in there!  Hugs!
