Got Results - Negative!
0

10 posts in this topic

hi there

well i eventually got my results -six biopsies taken.no significant inflammation. mucosa with villi of normal size and architecture. no granulomata,no giadia. no evidence of celiac or malignancy. duodenal biopsy; within normal limits.

so ive not got celiac but i have got gastro-oesophageal reflux disease - not sure how i feel really. i was hoping for some answers!. anyway i did remember to ask for copy of results. mentioned abt my palm rash getting worse since reintroducing dairy and if the rash on my face could be caused by my vitamin e face cream( possibly wheat based) and reminded her of the food intolerance,s( that originally brought me to the docs in the first place) to my complete and utter shock she said she would refer me for allergy testing!!!! this put me off my stride and i completely forgot to ask for blood test results and for new tests to be done.although i expect they will be done when i have the allergy tests.

i also asked for the notes from the hospital when i was told i had scleritis- i wasnt told what it was so i never went back. just to check if it was a definite diagnosis or the doc was just surmising it could be that.

so got some meds for the reflux, but i dont really want to go an get them- id rather try to modify my diet - any suggestions anyone?? ta!

also been having probs with my teeth and now i think ive got yet another abcess, so another trip to dentist!!!

the other thing is - if my bloating is not celiac- its prob dairy .so now im faced with eatin it till i get my allergy testing done even though its gonna make my rashes worse. soz if it sounds like im moaning abt not havin celiac - just a bit miffed thats all. any imput welcome thanks...

My basic guidelines for GERD is as followed: no greasy, no rich, and no spicy. Sodas can be done depending on how tolerent you are.

Endoscopys are falling out as the gold standard. Try the gluten free diet and see if it makes this all go away.

hi there, thanks for your reply

iv,d been reading some of your posts coz id noticed you mentioned gerd in a few. odd thing is ,reflux wasnt one of the symptoms i complained abt to my doc as its one of the newest symptoms and id put it down to my age lol. as for sodas- im fine with diet coke , but anything else especially lemonade sets me off. ive noticed in mornin i get it abt an hour after breakfast and thats toast, sunflower margarine(dairy free) and coffee. so im guessing the coffee may have to go... oh yeah and chocolate- thats bad!!!! ( not for breakfast lol- just generally) ha!

I used to have stomache aches in the morning after my breakfast; I thought it was the coffee or sugary syrup on my waffles... turns out it was the waffles. I would stop with toast for breakfast if I was you. It could be non-celiac gluten intolerance (NCGI) or they missed the damaged parts in the biopsy.

Like shadowicewolf sugested, I would try the gluten-free diet for at least 3 months before you rule out gluten as a cause.

... My boys tested negative for celiac but 2/3 has seen their health improve after going gluten-free. Don't rule it out yet.

I really want to say, lol just to keep from crying. Celiac was ruled out for me also, stayed gluten free anyway because I felt better. Accidentally had some and ended up in ER from anaphylactic shock. So I headed the allergy direction to. On a positive note, you can avoid the the things that bother you and still have accurate skin allergy tests (it's really not as bad you will think). Now I'm at testing for a mast cell disorder (it's means you have allergic reaction to triggers, but are not allergic in the sense that allergy shots help) and have been placed on Zantac 300mg and Allegra 360mg a day. Hang in there, the answer is out there.

hi

i,d actually be glad to give up the toast- im absolutely fed up of it. i only started to eat it coz i was trying to up the wheat for the tests and id given up dairy (kinda) for a while, so that meant no cereal - although i cant think of a wheat free cereal. im a bit flummoxed as what to eat for breakfast as im veggie and not a big lover of eggs or fruit. a major overhaul of my diet is needed i think.!!!! its nice to hear your boys are feelin better on a gluten free diet - good luck. oh organic cornflakes should be ok - i,ll try them..

Every few days we make gluten-free pancakes. I'm lazy so I start with a mix but change it from there. For instance, the recipe calls for 1/4 oil, 1.5cups mix, 1cup milk. I use 1c mix, 1/2 to 1 cup of golden flax, 1/4 coconut oil, about 1.5 c coconut milk, 1/4 protein powder, bee pollen and cinnamon to taste (sometimes add cocoa). I try to "healthy it up" a bit. This would make left overs so we have frozen pancakes to toast or nuke the next day.

There are a few gluten-free cereals. Chex is a good one. There are other rice or hemp cereals that are in health food stores. Be careful with organic since that doesn't mean gluten-free. Evenstuff like Rice Krispies has wheat as a general rule.

If you like toast, Udi's is our favourite store bought bread; it's good as toast...not so good plain but the bagels are good untoasted.

Good luck to you! :)

I do gluten free bisquick for pancakes. I normally eat chex though.

Be careful with corn flakes, sometimes depending on the brand, they can use a barley sweetener I believe.

My celiac test was also negative. I did have allergy testing done, because I was already allergic to peanuts. I am allergic to wheat on the blood test and skin test. They did do Igg testing on me and I was allergic to alot of things, but the biggest were gliadin, gluten and wheat. I decided to go gluten free completely, it's been two years now and if I am glutened I can tell the next day (strangely it doesn't hit me right away) I was also diagnosed with gerd and IBS about 9 years ago. My heartburn only bothers me if I have bad seasonal allergies now.

I love chex and vans gluten free cereal. Sometimes I have a hershey bar with my cup of coffee in the morning and it is wonderful!!!

Good Luck

Sarah

thanks for all your replys

ive been food shopping today and decided im going to buy a few things each week until ive got a stock of gluten free foods i can rely on when i try goin gluten free. im gonna concentrate on the gluten free and not think about the dairy for now - sort out breakfast and lunch and then slowly over the next few weeks try a few recipes for tea. im no cook so god knows what they,ll taste like!!!!. think i,ll start with soup. haha!

im british, so im not sure if we get the brands you,ve mentioned, but we have holland and barrett- which is a wholefoods shop, so i,ll have a trip to that an see what i can find- and look in the recipe section on here. bought the organic cornflakes they were in the gluten free section in the supermarket - im guessing they should be ok - but i.ll check and hazelnut milk to try. oh and some fruit smoothies which i thought would be ok for breakfast- no additives at all -just blended fruit . im gonna google american brands and see if anywhere here sells them . not sure wot a hersey bar is but im thinking chocolate lol!

    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.  
    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
    • Hi everyone, I am doing job in restaurant at evening 5 to 12 during working hours no time to do a dinner. I'm thinking to make a shake but don't know the gluten free vitamin or supplement brand which one is good for me and easily available in Berlin Germany to make me fit cause last one week i feel weak. I'm 28 year old. Sincerely
    • Hey there just wanted to warn anyone that has other allergies- these crackers may not be a good choice! I'm mildly sensitive to MSG- I only react if there's a giant amount like in Chinese food or Ramen noodles, etc.  I literally have a to eat TONS of a the offending food before reacting.  Anyway, I was excited to try these Trader Joes pumpkin crackers, kept hearing about them on the radio .... and they're gluten free!  (I have Hashi's).  I ate about 3/4 of the box last night. Woke up this morning with a red itchy face and nasal congestion, headache, anxiety. Hallmark symptoms for me of high MSG intake. (It does say yeast extract on the side but it's pretty far down the list). So if you're sensitive.... stay away! Apparently these particular crackers are loaded with it.
