Coffee does terrible things to my stomach and sleep patterns. I drink green tea with soy milk!

In Topic: Depression

11 April 2007 - 12:28 PM

I have had serious problems with depression and mood disorders all my life. At one point I was even diagnosed manic depressive. But that doctor was stupid because I am not manic depressive. Once I stopped taking all the meds I was on (which were actually making me worse) and changed my diet I started to get much better. I started eating really healthy (completly cut out sugar, reduced alcohol, didn't eat processed foods, cut down on meat, ate more veggies and fruits) but I was still eating gluten because I didn't know about the Celiac then. I was still depressed, just not crazy with manic symptoms. I have recently gone gluten free and now my depression is completely gone. It is really, really important that I also eat NO sugar in addition to no gluten. If I get even a little of either my depression comes back.

sugar doesn't give me gastro problems as long as there is no gluten in it, however I DO have a serious problem with sugar. Whenever I eat sugar, even if it isn't very much, I become depressed the next day. The more I have, the worse the depression is. It's terrible! Even before I discovered my gluten intolerance I knew that sugar negatively effected me and I try to avoid it at all costs!

In Topic: Blood Test While On Gluten Free Diet?

couple thoughts...

Third... You eat gluten, you get sick. You do not eat gluten, you do not get sick, right? So, umm, why would you want to eat gluten? Really the best test in most cases is the diet its self. You just did that and confirmed you do have a problem with gluten. What ever label they want to put on it does not matter in the end. IMO, stop eating gluten and tell the doc your content with the diet testing.
NOTE:I am not a doctor, nor do I play one on tv/internet. Just a father of a 3yr old with celiac disease.


Yes I totally agree with this. I have been thinking a lot about this today and I have talked with my family about it. It makes SO much more sense to just forget the "official" diagnosis and just do what feels right. It's just such a weird thing when your doc tells you DO THIS and you know that makes no sense. But I should be the last person to listen to docs because 90% of them have diagnosed me incorrectly in the past...
