So Tired...

08 August 2009 - 11:47 AM

I was wondering if anyone has gone through the same thing?
My test results were negative, but my IgA count was extremely low, so they wouldn't read positive even if I had celiac for sure.

current test results:
Triglycerides: 480
Blood sugar: 111
borderline anemic
CS1: +3 candida, +1 saprophytic fungi
GP2: no parasites
MB2 Total intestinal SIgA: <11 (normal range is 400-880)
MB3 Intestinal lysozyme: 4 (normal is 6)
MB4 Alph Anti-Chymotrypsin: <14 (normal is <60)
FG1 Chymotrypsin: <3 (normal is >9)
no allergy to milk, soy, egg
F14 Gliadin Ab SIgA: 7 negative

Because of this I went gluten free 3 weeks ago and so much is going better. My heartburn has stopped, I'm becoming more regular :) , I have less abdominal pain and a lot less bloated. My skin has almost cleared up completely (first time ever) and I'm thinking much more clearly so I'm having positive response to the diet.
The thing is though, for the last few days I've been VERY tired again. All I want to do is sleep, it's hard to keep moving sometimes and so I've been taking too many naps (and still not feeling rested).

So I'm wondering if anyone else has this? Could it be a healing response (I've been sick for a long time and now have leaky gut)? It almost feels like a detox ~ kind of a heaviness in the body and head. I don't know... maybe I was "glutened" but I don't think so. Everything else is holding fine - still regular and such, but I'm just really, really tired... and I have a strange tingling sensation all over, including my tongue.

Just looking for answers or someone who is experiencing the same thing ~ I'm so confused... and I really just want to feel normal for a little while.

How Long To Heal A Leaky Gut?

24 July 2009 - 08:44 AM

Hi All,
I'm newer here, was diagnosed 2 weeks ago with Gluten Intolerance with Leaky Gut by my Naturopath. He said since I'm so super sensitive right now, to avoid all grains and sugars (except honey occasionally).

Boy ~ it's really helping a lot... I feel SO MUCH BETTER already!!!! BUT: I don't know much about the "leaky gut" thing. Specifically, how long does it take to heal? There are so many gluten-free foods out there with rice and other grains that I'm excited to try. I'm afraid tho because I'm feeling so good, I don't want to mess it up... so I'm wondering how long before I should give those products a try.

Also... does anyone suffer from an intense burning sensation in the low low back? This pain has mellowed out for me with the gluten-free diet... I'm imagining pieces of food slipping out through the small intestine and just hanging out down there rotting and creating gasses ~ could very well be the reason for the low back burn! I would love to hear if anyone else has that.

I have to say, it's kind of exciting reading all the boards here and seeing all these symptoms that I've had my whole life talked about by so many people. I thought (was told for years) that these symptoms were all in my head!!
