In Topic: I'm Back And I Think I'm As Close As I'm Ever Gonna Get To A Dx

Grrr, Kareng,


That just kind irritated me just a bit more. The first 1 seemed to go a good way towards being Celiac and the second just blew it out of the water because it could be something else. :wacko:  But the 1 thing that sticks out is my immune system. Lupus, Connective Tissue Disease, Rynauds and other stems from immune problems plus gastro problems.


Geeze Louise, I need to be gluten-free but it's gotten to be such a darn hassle plus my depression dosen't help matters as well as stressors on top of everything.


But do appreciate the help Karen.  Thank you.

In Topic: Iron Defency Anemia & Iron Infusions

Hi Kristen, I have had Chronic anemia all my life and I have been taking 325 mgs of iron 3 times a day and told to eat liver every night but I kept getting worse and worse. Finally went to a Nuerologist and she said I have Lupus on top of needing a blood transfusion. My GP Doc didn't think I needed anything else done because it was chronic. But I cant get the transfusion until I have my Ablation procedure on Thursday because of Endometriosis, heavy bleeding.

My going gluten-free only helped for a little while, like a year before I started going down hill again.

You've only found out 2 weeks ago. It will take a little while to start feeling better. Try to be as strict as you can, for some it can take just a couple of weeks for some they didn't start feeling better until a year in. It took me 6 months before I started feeling better. Not to mention you may go through withdrawals which will make you feel worse.

Not just gluten but soy and dairy also causes me to have depression anywhere from 12 to 48 hours.

It could be withdrawal or it could be an intolerance. A lot of secondary intolerances pop up when going gluten free.

Dairy causes my sinus's to act up so bad my sinus's swell as well as the roof of my mouth swells and blisters pop up. When that happens I usually have about a week and a half of pure heck.

In Topic: A Relative Is Diagnosed Celiac- Won't Go Gluten-Free

I have a cousin who has a son who has all the signs of Celiac and is so allergic to MSG he has to carry an epipen with him. H'e like 12 now, and she would rather him have his epipen than try to avoid MSG let alone gluten. :blink:
