Something Is Wrong...
Posted 11 September 2012 - 04:32 PM
It's always been that way. I took nothing from it, just figured I shouldn't eat it. I've eliminated dairy for the same reasons. It hurts my stomach, gives me very loose stools.
Well, like I said... I'm constantly hurting now. It does not matter what I eat. If I eat a piece of toast, it happens. If I eat meat, it happens. Veggies, same story.
It was suggested that I go gluten free. That it might not solve my issues right away but it could help.
Does any of this sound like it could be helped by a gluten free diet? Do I need to take any kind of tests or something? I just want to be healthy. I know that if my body is attacking me (loose bowels, back pain, fatigue, obesity) then I'm going at it wrong. KWIM?
Thanks for reading all this. I had less than 4 hours of sleep, went to the dr and she wasn't that helpful... I have a UTI, am in pain, and I just want relief. *sigh* I want to feel GOOD for once.

I agree, the testing for celiac should come first. It is much easier to do testing now before you go gluten-free. After going gluten-free it may be too painful to go back on gluten for the testing.
Your symptoms do sound like they could be celiac. A celiac blood antibody test panel is the first thing to get. An endoscopy is sometimes done after that but it is not always nessecary depending on the doctor you see. They may diagnose you after a positive blood antibody tests and a positive response to the gluten-free diet.
Some starting the gluten-free diet tips for the first 6 months:
Get tested before starting the gluten-free diet.
Don't eat in restaurants
Eat only whole foods not processed foods.
Eat only food you cook yourself, think simple foods, not gourmet meals.
Take gluten-free vitamins.
Take digestive enzymes.
Avoid sugars and starchy foods.

I still can't eat greasy foods, however that is due to my GERD.
