Which Thing Should I Try?
0

5 posts in this topic

I'm in a rotten mood all the time lately. Irritability, depression, anxiety, fatigue. What should I try? I am taking some gluten free vitamins right now. Also some L-glutamine powder. Not doing the trick.

I'm thinking of getting some probiotic supplements, or some sublingual B12 that I keep reading about on this site. (Anyone know if the B12 is vegan?)

Thanks

You'd need to check the particular brand of B-12 you are considering to see if it is vegan. I'd think about something you are eating as a cause of the symptoms. So take a look at all the things you usually eat / drink and vitamins and look for common ingredients or something that you are consuming on a regular basis. Do you eat a lot of soy? That's trigger a for many people. You could take it out of your diet for a couple months and see how things go. Dairy could cause symptoms too. Really anything you consume can cause a problem, there are no limits to what we can react to. So looking at everything is a good idea. Starting with the top 8 food allergens is a good place to begin.

OK thanks. I don't know what I'd do without soy. I'm vegan on top of celiac, so I eat a lot of tofu for protein... But maybe I will cut it out for a while and see what happens. I am so careful about cc but I'm still sick so maybe it's not gluten that's getting me...

Please don't think I'm taking your complaint lightly. I know exactly what you're going through. But my first impule when I read the title of your thread was to tell you to get a banjo and learn how to play it! LONG before Steve Martin said it, I said that if we want to have world peace we should get everyone a banjo because you can't help but feel happy when you have one in your hands. :lol:

Anyway, GFinDC is right. It might well be the soy. But you might also be on the right track with the B-12. I have been through a lot of emotional turmoil this past year, and the very worst instance was when I was vitamin deficient. I would try both dropping soy for a while AND getting some good B-12's. Being vegan, the liklihood of you being B-12 deficient is much higher than for most people anyway. Add Celiac to the mix and it seems HIGHLY likely.

I would add...D3 helps improve mood and Fish oil/or other source of Omega 3 oils. They're anti-inflamatory.

Do you eat dairy? I get very moody if I eat it. Soy could cause a bad reaction too, in some people.

    • by the way, I do find the lab who does the gluten sensitive test Gluten Allergy IgE Test This test is used to determine if a person has an allergic reaction to gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley, and rye.  Roughly 1 in 30 adults and 1 in 40 children suffer from a Gluten Allergy.  An IgE test looks for antibodies which develop in a person who has a particular allergy.  Gluten Allergy can display symptoms similar to other conditions such as Celiac Disease.  Unlike an allergy, Celiac Disease can do permanent harm to the body if left untreated.  Allergy testing when a person is experiencing symptoms can help identify or rule out an allergy as the cause.

      Gluten Allergy is typically less severe than other Gluten related conditions like Celiac Disease.  People with Gluten Allergy will often experience abdominal discomfort, bloating, gas, constipation, or diarrhea when they eat products containing gluten.  These symptoms usually stop when a person cuts gluten out of their diet.

      A Gluten Allergy IgE test can be ordered to help determine if someone allergic to gluten.  This test can also be ordered when a person is testing for Celiac Disease and has had negative results on Celiac specific antibody tests.  An allergy test can also be ordered prior to Celiac testing to rule out Gluten Allergy as a likely cause for a person’s symptoms.
    • so does it mean a person who carry dq2 or dq8 gene will have high chance to develp celiac disease if they continue to eat gluten or some other stuff trigger it??      
    • I just wanted to share my experience. I started with the endoscopy because I was having symptoms of a hernia + I had a colonoscopy at the same time to test for Chron's. While getting the scope the doctor noticed damage of the small intestine and did biopsies and they came back positive for Celiac disease. We followed up with the necessary blood work to confirm and those all came back like yours, negative, however my genetic testing was positive. So although rare, it is possible to test negative on the blood work and still have damage and be a positive. I don't know why my blood work was off, but I am glad I had the scope first because I would have never known the damage I was doing if I relied solely on the blood work. 
    • You're welcome. Good that you're having the gene test as well. If you DO have the gene(s) then you realize one can present with celiac at any point in life -- any age -- so you would need to be tested like you were, every 2 years in the absence of symptoms. If one develops symptoms then they need to be tested right away instead of waiting for the 2 yr. mark. It's not common, but is possible to test negative on the blood and still have villi damage on endoscopic biopsy. So depending on the results of the gene test....... you might see if your doc will do a endoscopy for you OR you might be what they refer to as something like a pre-celiac where you're not testing positive yet but most likely will soon.
    • Just don't give up.  Good luck and best wishes to you.  Let me know how it's going for you.  Been there, done this.  It ain't fun.
