If I consumed coconut or almond milk, I would have D every single day (that includes all milk products too). Perhaps you have an intolerance to either of them. Something to consider.......


This is what I was thinking too. Too much milky stuff does me in.......

Thanks, Everyone! To be honest I am starting to see the 'symptoms' of other diagnoses calm down a great deal. To the point it's shocking! I feel very, very hopeful and optimistic.  AND to be honest I feel better than I have in years, and I'm only just over a week in!


Amazing, isn't it? It just keeps getting better.

Nvsmom beat me to the punch and she gave her usual excellent advice! With all of those associated conditions and especially the lymphoma, you must stay strictly gluten-free because it will help to make you better and calm your immune system down. Do not be overwhelmed. It is new, at first, but you will discover just how much you can eat. Not everyone gets the pleasure of knowing what caused all their medical problems and has the ability to do something about it with diet. You will find that eating gluten-free is small potatoes compared to having chemo.

JesikaBeth.......looking at your signature list of all your health problems, almost every one is a screaming symptom of Celiac. The fact that a doctor told you you could keep eating gluten with positive bloodwork is what should make you angry, not the gluten free diet.  The cancer you were diagnosed with is strongly associated with undiagnosed Celiac.

But you know now that you have Celiac so keep eating strictly gluten free and watch yourself get better!  I also have Hashi's thyroid disease so watch as you heal for symptoms of hyperthyroid because once your GI tract heals, the level of medication you are on may be too much.  That happened to me and I didn't sleep for a week.  :ph34r:   But it was at the 4 year mark so it won't happen (if it happens at all) right away.

 

Best of luck to you and keep up the good fight!  Let us know if you have any cravings for food you miss because there are a lot of foodie experts on here that can help out. 

Feeling deprived is not something that should happen.  :D 


In Topic: Anxiety And Bloating Still Happening After Going gluten-free? Help!

10 July 2014 - 11:33 AM

Hi

 

I have been diagnosed in February this year after being very sick for about 8 year but since last year April i started bleeding from my rectum. Doctors could not give me a proper explanation and i also have a pain in my right side more or less in the area of your gallbladder. They could not tell me what it was and after i went gluten free in Feb the pain subsided a bit but is back again. The gastroenteroligist seems to think it is my small intestine and related to my celiac. I also experience shortness of breath and fatique. I don't get anxiety attacks but i feel anxious and stressed. I hope you feel better soon and you can google The Gluten-free lie: why celiacs are slowly dying. It is very interesting and helpfull. I really benefited a lot from it. 

Renee....that article is pure fear mongering.  Most Celiacs are NOT slowly dying but people are free to believe what they want.  You do know that Celiac's can certainly have unrelated health issues aside from their Celiac Disease or they could be suffering from additional food intolerances?  I went way more than 8 years of being ill and wasn't diagnosed until I was 46 years old. I was about as sick as a person can be at diagnosis.  But, over 9 years, I have healed fine and live a perfectly normal life.  I know many other Celiacs who have done the same and most of us are older too.

 

I am very sorry you are having a difficult time but it seems you should be screened for other AI diseases also. Maybe see another doctor because bleeding should not be that difficult to find the cause of. I'm sure the reason you are anxious and stressed is because of all this that you have going on.  But if you believe what this article says then it will be difficult to get better with that mindset.  Good luck to you!
