In Topic: Gluten Free One Month And Have Questions

Google Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth. Sounds very much like your symptoms, and is very common for people with Celiacs. I am recovering from it now - good luck!

You might want to consider fat intolerance. Celiac's can and often does destroy the gallbladder - it did mine! You need a certain amount of dietary fats to absorb the fat soluable vitamins (so don't eliminate fats completely). However, if you notice more GI discomfort in the late afternoon/evening, a lot of smelly gas, a pain under your first right side rib (just above your stomach), perhaps some pain in your back directly behind that area, and some right side shoulder pain - you might consider that it is your gallbladder.


In Topic: Gallbladder Flush?

23 September 2008 - 06:46 PM


I too have Gallbladder problems (just diagnosed) - they are very common with Celiacs. There is a lot of information on the Web about flushes, but I am very interested in your experience. I have had an Ultra Sound and a HIDA scan (28% function) done for my gallbladder, and my doctor never mentioned a flush. Has your M.D. made the recommendation, or are you seeing a Naturalpath. I really want to keep my gallbladder, so I am searching for alternatives. I know this does not answer your question, but I appreciate any information you might be willing to share!

Thanks so much,


In Topic: Testing 3 Yr Old Tomorrow

23 September 2008 - 06:40 PM

Doctors work for us, and since you are a Celiac, you can have the expectation that the doctor will indeed test your children for the disease. So don't go in all apologetic with a list of "reasons" for your doctor to do the tests. Tell him/her that you want the testing done as soon as possible due to the genetic risk, and that you appreciate their efforts. If a doctor ever makes you feel like you need to give them even one more reason to have that testing done, find another doctor - just be confident!

In Topic: Celiac, Thyroid And Ibs

See if your doctor can perscribe a different Thyroid medication that is dairy (lactose and casien free) as well as gluten free. Try that and see if all goes well before you start looking for other grains - it's worth the investigation! Good Luck!

I do not normally do milk, yogurt (cheese does seem to bother me) so I don't know if there is a problem. Years ago when I did drink some milk, I always bought the lactose free. I don't normally do dairy, except some cheese..

I've been eating mostly rice and don't know if I am becomng allergic to that. Can celiac's develop allergies to the limited grains that are permitted.
