Topics I've Started

Genetic Testing Results

31 October 2009 - 10:28 AM

Ok, so I talked my gastro Dr. into doing genetic testing to rule out celiacs- Because of my gastric bypass he was not able to do the standard biopsy. I thought the gluten free diet was slowly improving symptoms. It's been over 4 mo. He said he was almost certain it wasn't celiacs- told me to eat what ever I wanted while we waited 2 weeks for the results. So, I thought ok it's been 4 mo. maybe if it's not celiacs my system would be "healed or better" so I had 15 pizza rolls- almost died over the next 4 days. took my stomach a week to get off the roller coaster ride. Who knows? no one I know! so this is what his nurse sent to me- Alleles detected: HLA DQ1 5 detected/less than 0.1xRelative Risk: Extremely low..........What the crap is that? Is it some confusing way to say it was detected but not enough to be positive? could some one help me w/ this. Thanks

Dr. Or Enterolab And Diagnosis Or Not

02 October 2009 - 03:58 AM

So, I haven't had much success with answers to what's wrong with me- my insurance will pay for genetic testing, so do you think that it would be benifical to start w/ my Dr. and if I don't get anything usefull then do entero lab? What are the benefits of having an actual diagnosis? I do have 3 daughters i'm worried about. Thanks
I guess I should have mentioned I've been gluten-free for 3mo.- and I am seeing some improvements

Wondering If Anyone Has Had Gastric Bypass Surgery

23 September 2009 - 04:52 AM

Just wondering if anyone has had gastic bypass? I already have so many dietary issues, not really sure what else I could/should be doing differently. Nobody in my area has any experience with someone being post bypass and celiac

Celiac Vs. Non Celiac Gluten Intolerance

22 September 2009 - 05:16 AM

wondering what the differences are! If you can't get an answer on celiacs, is it safe to assume you are just intollerant? can intollerance cause the same medical problems? What are the benifits to being diagnosed? can you be diagnosed intolerant not celiac? wondering what tests can be done that will provide me with an answer- any answer. thanks so much

Help With Medications

21 September 2009 - 04:28 AM

I know there are many random posts here and there on specific meds, but I'd be here a week trying to find all of them. Almost all of my meds are generic (about 20) and I've tried several websites with No luck! Are there any sites that list by types, manufacturers or somewhere you can type them in to find out? my pharmacy is being less than helpful- my guess is because there are so many. So, I'm looking for the quickest and most reliable way to find out- Thanks so much
