Igg Tests Back
0

6 posts in this topic

I am not confirmed Celiac but went gluten free due to a Endoscopy that showed lower intestine damage. 2 Biopsies taken came back negative.

I have been gluten free since 3/2/12 and then started having all sorts of food intolerance issues. I stopped all corn/soy/yeast/dairy/avacados etc and I keep a diary. I have nothing processed. I am down to veggies, fruits and meats in their simple forms. I get poisoned at least every 3 days. I was on a rotation diet but I was getting burned left and right so I stopped and just started eating some safe foods but I still got burned on Tuesday of this week. Yesterday I got my IgG test back and I am sensitive to almonds, eggs, bananas and cranberries but no gluten/wheats. I had stopped eggs and almonds 2 weeks ago but I was having a bit of cranberries and bananas up until yesterday. Today I have not had any, i behaved all day. The only thing that bothered me today are fats. If I don't eat them I get terrible and unbearable pains in my back. So I have been drinking little bits of EVOO here and there with food today to add it back into my diet a bit but my stomach burns when I do it.

I am so terrified of getting sick again. My major symptom is dehydration as soon as I fall asleep, it's like I dry up like a raisin immediately and my kidneys hurt from it so bad. It's like every organ inside me dries up and I can feel it and I get very sore on the inside for days and then I get burned again and its just a nightmare over and over again. Of course this causes insomnia, anxiety and night sweats with cold and hot flashes. I fear I can't live through much more of this. I am down to 100lbs and steadily dropping because I am afraid to eat.

A urine test a week ago confirmed blood in my urine but they thought it was a kidney infection and sent a culture out to the lab that came back negative so that was the end of that. I saw my new GI tuesday and she also noticed blood in my urine. She took 6 viles of blood for more celiac, IgG tests and liver tests. I have a HIDA scan scheduled tomorrow if I can stay unsick until then. I wonder if the radioactive dye will make me sick...

I am also nervous that the EVOO burning may cause me to get sick but I won't really know until I fall asleep tonight. (wierd huh?) I saw my ND yesterday and I was so sick but she made me this remedy that has really helped with my symptoms this time around but its made from arsenic and I am not sure I want to keep going to her and paying for poison to treat my problems. I would have to pay $70 for each dose from her as well.

My question is... Do you think just stopping the cranberries and bananas will stop me from reacting? Or am I doomed? I still rotate my dinners and lunches but I stick to safe similar foods during the morning and snack times because of advise from my ND. Is that bad? Almost every thing i eat is on the IgG test and shows as a safe food.

If my gallbladder is bad and they remove it, will my weird intolerance symptoms change?

I almost hate to ask because I'm sure you've posted before... have you looked into salicylates, amines, histamines - those types of intolerances? You seem to be reacting in an unpredictable pattern, to many foods - and sometimes those types of intolerances are the underlying issues.

As far as I know, by food diary and elimination.

Here's a link about histamines/amines. I know there's better info about it, just not sure where. http://foodallergies.about.com/od/commonfoodallergies/p/histamineintol.htm

Here's one about salicylates. Again, I know there's more and better-search the board you should find plenty. http://salicylatesensitivity.com/

I have no clue but I see no need to eat cranberries or bananas. If you think they are causing a problem then stop eating them.

If you do have gallbladder trouble then eating fats will make it worse.

I would drop the arsenic supplement and consider replacing with a soothing (lower-risk) herbal tea. Milk thistle, ginger root, pau d'arco, dandelion root and goldenseal are just a few that are said to have digestive system benefits. Milk thistle is said to be good for reducing liver and gall bladder congestion so that might one to check out first. Some have potential side effects and rx medication interactions so you may want to read up before you try. Good luck.

    • It only takes a minute to make a difference. Celiac disease has been overshadowed by the gluten-free diet fad. Getting diagnosed and staying healthy is no piece of cake – those of us who have celiac disease struggle to stay healthy. We need better. We need to be understood. We need a cure.

    • If you are one of the approximately 2-3 million Americans with celiac disease, ZyGluten™ may be taken before you eat out at a restaurant or a friend\'s house, as it may help break down any gluten cross-contamination that you might encounter. View the full article
    • Advil (ibuprofen) is gluten-free, but can be a stomach irritant, especially if taken on an empty stomach. That said, I will also place my bet on the garlic and onions. As Raven said, eating more than once a day may also help. An empty stomach is likely to be an irritable stomach.

    • Thanks for posting.  I know it is difficult to talk about these sorts of things even on a webforum.  It is good thing for people to be aware though about celiac disease and that it can cause mental problems.  Gluten can cause brain damage and it can cause anxiety. If the brain does heal it may take a long time. I know that gluten can cause anxiety and obsessive thoughts.  My experience has been similar to your experience. When I first quit eating gluten I had a similar constant loop and strong negative feelings. There are lots of people on this forum who get anxiety when they eat gluten. Some people also experience gluten withdrawl where they experience anxiety after giving up gluten. It can take a long time for the body to heal and for obsessive thoughts to go away.
       It is normal for people to socialize with each other and to be comfortable about it. You said you have problems still socializing and being around people. It might be a depressing thought but it sounds to me like you still have problems with anxiety.  I would recommend considering what options you have available to treat the anxiety. When I quit eating Gluten I still had some symptoms, even though I felt much better. I have been slowly recovering over a period of about three years. I had obsessive thoughts even after I quit eating gluten.  Now I very rarely if at all think about those things. My experience is that my mind would latch on to certain things that caused me anxiety and focus on those things. Sometimes my focus would shift and I would latch onto other things. My ability to socialize has also improved greatly with time. I have made some dietary changes which I believe have helped greatly. It sounds to me like you have obsessive thoughts about things and maybe some brain damage. My experience has been that my obsessive thoughts about different things went away with time. I feel my obsessive thoughts were caused by gluten and not by what people did around me or any events. As my brain healed I became more self aware and things became less stressful.  I can't give medical advice on this forum but I can talk about my current diet and my experience with celiac disease. My experience with gluten is different from a lot of other people so it is a good idea to ask other people and to talk to a doctor.  I avoid oats and avoid almost all processed foods. I buy certified gluten free food. I eat healthy and I exercise every day. I take st John's Wort as I have read studies that say it may be as effective as some other anti-depressants for treating certain types of anxiety. It is available over the counter. I started with a small dosage and then stepped it up over time. I think it helps a lot.  This is also something that you should talk to a doctor about first. https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Martin_Mahoney2/publication/7426926_St._John's_wort/links/540d8acc0cf2f2b29a386673.pdf A lot of people with celiac disease have vitamin deficiencies.  Vitamin b deficiency can cause anxiety. Some people do not process the synthetic form of vitamin b (from normal pills)  very well, and do better on an activated form of vitamin b. I take:
      1 activated vitamin b12 daily
      1 activated vitamin b6 every once in a while. 1 regular vitamin b multivitamin
      1 magnesium pill every day.
      St Johns Wort daily.
      1 zinc vitamin daily
      I drink lots of Chamomile tea and decaf coffee. I avoid most caffeine. 
      I think each of these helps lower my anxiety level.  I eat fruit with every meal. Canned fruit from walmart is cheap and good for you. I eat salad and and vegetables and avoid dairy.  I eat frozen fish often as it has healthy proteins. Eating healthy is very important. I eat potatoes and rice. http://www.livestrong.com/article/454179-what-is-methyl-b12/ I avoid eating soy sauce, soy, cheese, aged meats and fermented foods (I do drink certain types of alcohol in moderate amounts.) These foods contain lots of Tyramine. I might (or might not) have "monoaine oxidase deficiency" and if so high Tyramine foods should be avoided.  I thought I might have problems with elevated ammonia in my blood, but I am not convinced of that anymore. I limited my consumption of meat for a while as well as dairy but I am not sure if i helped.  I have heard that Celiac disease can effect other organs besides the brain and those organs can have an effect on the brain.  My current diet is working so I am going to stick with it for now. I try not to worry about things that are outside of my control. Be patient as it took me a long time to recover.  Let me know if you have any questions. There is a lot of information on this site and people who are willing to help.
