Topics I've Started

I'm Extremely Confused..

26 February 2007 - 08:37 PM

I'm really confused and I really hope someone can help me! I had the blood test(Celiac Pannel) done in December to check for Celiac. I tested positive. Then, I had an endoscopy in January. I had a lot of damage to my esophagus and stomach(I have ulcers, acid refulx, hiatal hiernia, etc). My doctor didn't mention the Celiac until I asked and he responded, "you look pretty flattened out in your small intestines." I never got the results back from the biopsie they took to check for Celiac. I called and called and he finally said that the test was inconclusive, so we did a genetic test. I tested negative. So, if I don't have the gene does that mean that I don't have Celiac? I am still really sick! I've been on the diet for 2 months now, so I'm scared to get back on wheat.
Please give me advice! thanks!

I Need Help Trying To Gain Weight!

04 February 2007 - 04:15 PM

I'm 5'4'' and before I was diagnosed with Celiac I was always thin and weighed about 100-105 lbs. I am now 90 lbs and I don't feel healthy. I started a food journal to try to see how many calories i'm getting but it's hard because I get so full so fast! I end up eating hardley anything every hour. Does anyone have any suggestions? I tried drinking Boost bc it's lactose free and gluten free. Is there anything else I can do to gain weight? It's hard to gain weight with gluten free food it seems like, especially lactose free food.(not sure if I am lactose intolerant yet)
Please let me know if you have any gluten/lactose free recipes that will pack the pounds on! Thanks!!

Lays Stax

02 February 2007 - 01:31 PM

I ate some of those Cheddar Lay Stax last night and I woke up this morning feeling HORRIBLE! It says it is naturally gluten free on the label, but something in it made me sick. Maybe it is the cheddar in it? I've eaten other dairy products and i don't think it has really bothered me before. So why did this bother me now? This has been a really bad day! My boyfriend and I just broke up and the stress is definitely not helping!! I wish I had something to help the nausea. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks! :)

Questions About Contacts And Food Allergies..

31 January 2007 - 09:39 PM

I was wondering if anyone knew if it would matter if my contact solution was gluten free or not. I'm just paranoid about everything! :x

I was also wondering if anyone could give me advice about food allergy testing. I'm thinking about doing that because i'm not sure if i'm allergic to other things or not. I love dairy products and I want to make sure i'm not lactose intolerant. If I am, can i take those tablets called lactaid? or something like that?

Thanks! :)
