In Topic: Help! Always Bloated

02 October 2007 - 02:29 PM

Thanks for the replies. I don't really have pain after eating just fullness but I can't pinpoint any one thing. I haven't tried cutting out corn yet but I did have a allergy test for all those things and it was a normal. In fact my family doctor told me I wasn't celiac because the allergy test was negative I'm not really happy with that diagnosis I think it's wrong. The only thing I can't think is my I bloat badly because I am still underweight (5'7 and 93LBS).

I am in a similar situation. Diagnosed via blood tests June 28th. Since going gluten free I have seen some improvements, but I am ALWAYS bloated.

I am now headed for food allergy testing (I also have occasional hives that aren't DH).

I agree with hathor, if you have a positive biopsy, you have celiac disease, but it sounds like something else is going on as well.

Do you have pain after you eat? Does it hurt under your ribs?

In Topic: Newbie Question - How Soon Is Too Soon To Feel Relief?

You can be gluten/wheat/locatose intolerant without being celiac. But blood tests aren't always accurate a biopsy should be.

P.S. Forte made me very sick too but I highly recommend probiotics. Ginger and peppermint teas are also good for the stomach




Ok - I first posted yesterday after much reading of this board -

I've been dealng with many GI issues just like I've been reading around hear (diarrhea - fatty, orange stools that float, gas, bloating, constipation - not too much, fatigue). I've thought about seeing a head doctor for anxiety/depression/fatigue/generalized brain fog.

Recently went in to my general doctor after about 3 months of diarrhea (mostly before 6pm - kinda odd) and the rest of my internal problems. I went camping and drank some beer and ate nothing but brats and hotdogs and buns for 2 days. The monday after woke up naseaus but couldn't vomit - I heaved all morning eventually dislodging a couple of the strangest deep belches I've ever experienced.

She ran stool/blood/unrine - all came back negative (I haven't seen the actual paperwork - I dont knwo what they were looking at/for) Told me to take probiotics and Activia yogurt.

Symptoms still persistent - in the can 8-12 times/day, fatigue, headaches (I actually got glasses for less than .5 diopter correction - I work on a computer all day) She sent me to a GI spec. Went in for endo/colonoscopy with biopsy and more blood - all clear (haven;t seen paperwork on this either) He put me on Forte (methascopalomine bromide) to slow bowel motility - it makes me feel super sick - unless I dont eat.

Symptoms still persist - After reading much on this board - decided to go gluten-free a couple days ago - Officially yesterday - unofficially a few days - nacho cheese and gluten free chips were my sustinance (didn't know about gluten then - it was a coincidence that it was the only food that didn't make me feel like poop)

So today I feel better than I have in weeks - perhaps months -

Is this just placebo effect or wishful thinking? Should I continue this diet? Would I really experience any relief in that short of a time?


In Topic: Postive Biopsy Negative Bloodtest

21 June 2007 - 03:00 PM

Thanks for your input I just talked to my GI now he says to go off the gluten-free diet because the bloodwork was negative even though the biopsy was positive. This isn't what he said before but I guess he changed his mind since I'm not improving now he wants me to stay off the dairy and try another medication. I'm fed up and ready to look for another doctor


hi there, negative blood work is really common, but a positive biopsy means you have celiac, no and if or buts about it!! make sure that none of your vitamins or medication you are taking have gluten, not to mention your food and beverages, and cross contamination is a huge factor, so you need your own toaster and bakeware. also sometimes you can have other food intolerances, i myself have soy allergy and have to use lactaid for dairy. this could be due to damage in your intestines. i know there are lots of people on this site that can help you.


In Topic: 5 Days To Gluten Free

16 June 2007 - 11:45 PM

biscuits and pie!]



In 5 days I go for my biopsy. My blood tests already showed positive for celiac so as soon as I have the biopsy I am going gluten free (not waiting on results). I do NOT plan on ever cheating, so I would like to get in all my fav's before the 5 days are up. If you had 5 days to eat anything, what would you eat? What is just NOT the same once you go gluten free? Looking for fun ideas :) I'm gonna be so sick to my stomach, but I don't care, lol - I'll make up for it by never cheating on the gluten free, hehe. So fire away! What's teh one thing you miss the most? You can live vicariously through me!
