Gluten Was Causing Schizo Problems
0

29 posts in this topic

I understand GFinDC,

But i think there are so many open questions.

Like, why did grains eliminate my problems (not eating them).

Why did I sometimes feel crazy even from eating too many carbs.

So, what im trying to say, is maybe im not celiac, maybe its some sort of other issue.

There are just so many theories out there. Like what if a gut imbalance causes this or that. And maybe not eating grains (if u cant fully digest them), your gut bacteria come back to normal.

I have no idea, but i think personally i can cheat, but my last grain free 2 month stretch i never cheated.

Thanks

I think you have answered your own question.  While removing grains you feel better.  Up to you.  Life is so much better when your body is functioning properly.

 

I do not recall if you were ever tested for Celiac Disease -- to me -- it does not matter.  You have found you are healthier without grains which likely means you should remove all gluten.  

 

Again, up to you.

CanineGluten, thanks for making me smile. Your posts are quite entertaining, especially the one that has you not eating any grains but drinking a beer.

I can't imagine trying to eliminate all grains all at once. It doesn't surprise me at all that you keep going back to having them in your diet.

How about focusing on just gluten, which is highly likely to be causing problems for you, but keeping other grains like rice, which would be less suspect ... and would give you the carbs you need for energy?

So that means getting rid of anything made from wheat, barley and rye, and all of the hidden sources of gluten. Think you can get by on wine and tequila until you can track down a gluten-free beer?

And though it is tough at first, doing some more research into what to avoid  when it comes to hidden sources of gluten (such as malt) and ways to avoid contamination can make going gluten free a ton easier and less painful.

Best of luck to you. When you do get things sorted out, Netflix would be a great way to catch up on all of those movies you've missed.

Im now simply removing gluten. Still eating rice.

But doing this 2-3 days and already noticing 100%

improvement.

Medication cant always help so if this is the root

Cause then hallelula.

Just weird how gluten took so long to manifest into

auditory hallucinations. Hate saying that! But

Its crazy.

    • I think the gene tests are accurate.  Not sure if thier interpretation of them is.   If you actually think have Celiac, you need to know that.  You  need to know how careful you must be.  You need a diagnosis to get gluten-free food in hospitals or nursing homes (if you can find one that does gluten-free food).  Because thsese "stool tests" are not medically accepted, it is unlikely that a real medical facility will consider you to have Celiac.   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/why-dont-you-recognize-tests-stool-tests-or-otherwise-for-gluten-sensitivity-that-are-currently-available-through-companies-like-enterolab-or-cyrex/
    • Why would your doctor order an endoscopy and check for celiac disease, but not order a celiac panel?  Had you been gluten free already?  
    • Thanks cyclinglady ... just wondering, do most of the people on this forum believe the Enterolab stool / gene testing to be non-trustworthy? Or are you just recommending a diagnosis from my MD so that she is also treating me with full belief/knowledge of my condition? I've been gluten free now for 2 weeks - by the time I get in to my doctor, she orders the bloodwork and I get to a lab it could be another 2 weeks before the bloodwork is done. From what I understand, just a month of gluten free eating could skew the results of the blood test. Supposedly, the stool tests are much more accurate. I hate to go backwards and start eating gluten again just so I can have a blood test done that may or may not substantiate the results of the stool / gene testing. I'm so confused ...
    • Try to stick to a whole foods diet.  Things like unseasoned stew, soup, etc.  Things easy-to digest, preferably not processed by a anyone except you.  Too often new celiacs start using gluten-free foods (cookies, bread, crackers).  Your body is not used to these grains and they often contain lots of junk.  For example, I react to Xantham gum.  It does not bother my gluten-free hubby, but it gets me every single time!   Did you read our Newbie 101 thread under "Coping"?   It contains lots of valuable tips.  Make sure those meds are gluten free.  Supplements too.   I hope you feel better soon!    
    • Here are the actual tests.   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Insist on the complete panel.  Let them know (your doctor) that your father had celiac disease.   Document in writing!  If you have celiac disease, your life can be improved.  All the things I attributed to aging were actually related to celiac disease.  It is never too late to feel well!  I am in my 50's but my Aunt iis 81.  We celebrate a Gluten free Thanksgiving every year!   Oh, my kid does not have celiac disease, but she is tested every few years even though she is symptom free!  There are silent celiacs.  My symptom?  Anemia.  No tummy issues.   Please advocate for your health.  Keep all records.  Doctors can not ignore written facts and requests.
