Maybe it is something simple to fix, or a temporary situation Krypto. Anyway, I hope so. Let us know what develops with the new doctor if you don't mind.

Thanks for your warm welcome!!! I have the toaster and separate condiments. I checked all my meds & vitamins. No soy I can do, but no dairy will be tough (love my cheese!) I wish I went whole food only right away!!! I am getting there...No doctor told me to avoid oranges while my ulcer is healing...I am in ulcer pain today :blink: I have read that even though I have damage to my kidneys, that going gluten-free will stop any new damage :P love it! :wub:


Welcome Colleen. Good to have you here. Your story of a slow diagnosis is unfortunately pretty common. Maybe that will change someday.

A good way to start the gluten-free diet is with a simple whole foods diet. That means no processed foods, mostly whole foods like fruits, veggies, and meats. Limited spices is a good idea too. The whole foods diet also reduces the chance of cross-contamination and making mistakes in the beginning. Plus the labels are much shorter and quicker to read. Another thing to avoid is sugar and sodas. But add pro-biotics and maybe some digestive enzymes too.

It is not unusual for people to alternate between good and bad days for a while as their intestines heal and begin to stabilize. If you get gassy peppermint tea with stevia may help. Plus it tastes good. :)

Did your docs check you for nutrient shortages? Sometimes we are low on vitamins and minerals due to mal-absorption in the intestines. It's good to know about that early on so you can focus some effort on correcting it.

I am glad the Lord led you to the site and thanks for your wishes that we heal. I don't know if that's possible after seeing those glasses you wear though. eek! :Just kidding. )

ok got some news here.all the blood work that i had done which was out of this world to rule out every disease known to mankind,turned out to be all normal,so i am left with a kidney biopsy to determine what the disease i have i guess.anyone here have one done and do i really need this to be done feedback would be helpful.

saw the kidney doc this week all blood work was great creatine was also good also.he had told me that i am in pretty good shape,because there is no loss of functions anywhere,as of now.he has me on a med that will hopefully cut down the potein passing threw.i am to see him in 3 months he said if the bloodwork is the same we are good.same with the urine work also.biopsy will only be needed if blood is off and more protein is in urine. :D he also mentioned that it is possible that since i have celiac that this is why this is happening.bottom line he said people with celiac have a greater chance of developing kidney issues this doc is out of yale new haven in ct.
hope all is well with all

Sounds better Krypto. Thanks for keeping us updated. I don't know about the biopsy but maybe someone else will chime in on that.

Have you tried an elimination diet? I don't know if that would help or not, but seems like food intolerances can cause an awfully wide range of symptoms. Sore joints, migraines, skin rashes, liver problems, etc. So why not kidney issues too? Just a thought.
