Gluten Free
0

6 posts in this topic

I'm curious to know how long it took for you all to start noticing health improvement once you cut gluten from your diet? I won't have my endoscopy for at least a month and am considering cutting gluten for a week just to see if I notice any difference. I have constant muscle aches and have been diagnosed with benign fasiculation syndrome and have read that this could be caused by my low Vit D. As I posted earlier my blood tests came back negative so if I respond positively to cutting the gluten then I can always load up again before I schedule the endoscopy.

You might have trouble going back on gluten after being off it for even a week. Our bodies react more strongly to it when we've been away from it for a while. So yeah, you might notice a positive change in the way you feel in only a week, but I doubt it would be worth the negative change in the way you feel when you start eating it again.

Take this time to enjoy all of the gluteny things you will never be able to eat again. Even though we eat well, there are some things that can't be duplicated. Have some donuts! Have some clamcakes. If you know someone who makes homemade bread like my Mom used to do, have a whole loaf, fresh out of the oven. Put lots of butter on it while you're at it in case you develop an intolerance to dairy.

And then, once you go gluten-free, if you can, learn to cook so you can make your own substitutes instead of having to buy them all like I (the most incompetent cook in the world) do.

I'd agree it may be hard to back on again. I had a short break gluten-free and then ate it again after the lab lost my results (grr). It was much worse much more quickly when I ate gluten the second time.

Don't do it. I went off gluten for a week after my blood tests, not realizing I needed to be on it for the endoscopy. I'm much more sensitive now even after that short time. Not feeling well at all.

So don't do it. Just wait until after the endoscopsy.

I agree, I had stopped eating it for 9 days and then dr told me i had to eat it again for 6 weeks before I could have a blood test/endescopy and when I started eating it again i felt awful, especially the first few days back on it

    • Hey guys so question. I still am going through some of the motions to finally be diagnosed. I has a really bad case of acid reflux a few days ago and now i feel soo sick. Im still eating gluten because i got a negative biaopsy test but ive been told thag i more than likely still have it because its really hard to detect. Well i drank beer last night and had a poutine today stupid i know and now i feel soooo sick. And only felt really sick after the poutine. Now my question is can your symptoms get worse all of a sudden??  I have many other symptoms thaat read celiac deisease for most of my life. But since all doctors told me you have anxiety ibs and fibro at 28 years old. I just baiscally gave up and figured this was going to be my life feeling like crap for the rest of my life. Any thoughts??? Thanks guys. Sorry for the novel lol

    • I have 2 insurance policies, one with my husband's company and one through mine. I also stretch out the more major work into the next year, so I can make the most use of my benefits. So, a dental implant for me takes about a year for me to complete.  I have the post put in at the end of one year and the tooth made about 6 months later. Honestly, the insurance company probably hates me because I max out my benefits every year. You do what ya gotta do!  I still have to pay for some of the work out of pocket but about 75% gets covered. If you pay cash for procedures then they usually charge a lower price. Haggle with the dentist over price. They like getting cash.
    • Did your doctor check for SIBO, H. pylori, ulcers, etc. when he was obtaining biopsies to check for celiac disease?
