In Topic: Osteopenia A Year And A Half After gluten-free

Do they check your vitamin D levels?  You will need vitamin d, and k2, and protein (particularly glycine and collagen) to build bone. There's a surprising amount of protein in the "matrix" of bone.  



Blood glucose stability will help tremendously with the healing process.  You will get a lot of bang for your buck with effort in this area.  Do you have a feel for what's driving the hypo episodes?  
Inflammation seems to increase your fracture risk:


tea (green or black) may help, very unlikely to hurt.



I think the endo is your best bet at this point.   Best wishes, please keep us posted.

Make sure that you keep an eye on levels of zinc, iodine, vitamin d, b12, iron.  Deficiencies will aggravate.

The Keg Steakhouse has several locations in and around Toronto. They are celiac-aware. They have steaks (of course), seafood, ribs and chicken.

We enjoy eating there.


Thank you, that looks like a place we will both enjoy!

You might look into histamine intolerance. 

In Topic: Questions Regarding Enterolab Results/gene Test

10 May 2014 - 05:45 AM

Here's a link to a new study discussing TTG and celiac 



Clin Exp Immunol. 2014 Apr 28. doi: 10.1111/cei.12366. [Epub ahead of print]
In celiac disease intestinal titers of anti-tissue transglutaminase2 antibodies positively correlate with the mucosal damage degree and inversely with the gluten-free diet duration.


Skylark's blog post on the Enterolab tests was one of the more useful things I've read on the topic.
