15 posts in this topic

Hello to all my friends,

Well the 2nd round of cocktails are done and I am happy to report that this time was much easier, mainly fatigue but nothing I couldn't handle. I have one more round the 28th then surgery to remove my stomach in February. Ok so that is freaking me out a little I am doing all I can to get my body ready, physically, mentally, and spiritually so that my healing process will be easier. I just want everyone to know that I am doing well the doctors are very pleased with my progress, they actually thought by this point I would need a feeding tube, but I fooled them all and I am actually gaining weight!!! So I have this break now to enjoy Christmas with my family, so for now the words, Cancer, surgery, and chemotherapy are banned in my house. I just want to enjoy this next week and only have some fun!!! Have a wonderful day my friends and thank you again for all your support. B)

You're a warrior princess!

      Thanks all for your replies. I know by my last couple of blood tests it has shown signs of anemia so this may have escalated. I did tick a few of the boxes. The loss of appetite is very unusual for me and the anxiety is (I'm hoping) the main cause of this it just seems funny that it all started from the Vitargo a bit over a week ago.
    • Daughter with celiac- need test result help
      You are not crazy!  She needs to learn to wash her hands before eating every single time and no fingers in her mouth!   Do you have a 504 plan in place at school? http://www.beyondceliac.org/SiteData/docs/504%20Roadmap/e4630d030351770a8cc47e9280fb19bd/504%20Roadmap.pdf Other parents have had this issue, so you can search the kids section of the forum.    
    • Testing After Celiac Disease if IgA deficient
      Yes, both these tests can be ordered.  The DGP test is typically better for dietary compliance. Insist on both! Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgG -Deamidated Gliadin Peptide  (DGP) IgG
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      I was diagnosed a couple years ago and started gluten-free diet then. Test also showed damage to my small intestine. I explained to this doctor how I was barely able to get out of bed when I ate gluten in the pastand my intestines are still recovering from the damage. I only discussed this briefly. I consulted with this doctor concerning my dizziness explaining that I get dizzy/migraines when I eat gluten due to my celiac disease. I further explained that my dizziness has been cut in half since I went on a gluten-free diet so I am better able to get out of bed. The consult was about taking tests to figure out if something in my brain was causing my dizziness or this doctor specialized in testing the brain for impairments. In her summary, she stated that my memory impairments were probably due to being precoccupied with thinking about my psychosomatic symptoms. However, I only though about the test when I took it. And I only think about whatever task I am trying to remember when I try to remember it! I feel my symptoms rather than think about them all day long.
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      If you don't get the diagnosis you are happy with go to another doc.  Try to find a Celiac Friendly doc.  OR you can do what i did and give up and just go gluten free.  I didn't need a doctor to confirm that if my gas, bloating, migraines, depression, joint pain, rash, dry skin and brittle nails went away when i went gluten free that i must have celiac.  AND 6 months after i went gluten free on my own i had some blood tests repeated that i had done when they were trying to figure out what was causing my severe rash, all the things that were "wrong" with me or abnormal in the the first blood tests, went to normal on the second test.  INCLUDING MY THYROID LEVELS! Oh, i didn't mention that during this time they diagnosed me with early hashimotos.. 6 months later i was miraculously cured from this progressive thyroid disorder according to the blood test results.  I didn't have hashimotos to put it bluntly.   I am almost 10 years gluten free with no positive Celiac diagnosis.  But let me tell you this,  My daughter's neurologist did a DNA test on her 1 year after she too went gluten free and it came back positive for Celiac.  so.  js.     That's my story..  in short.

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
