In Topic: Not Celiac - So How Do I Know If I'm Still Gluten Sensitive?

11 October 2011 - 05:29 PM

They're sending me for a colonoscopy on Monday. This is obviously because they're concerned about the fact that I've still been having issues despite being on the gluten-free diet for a month now. I'm wondering if I should go ahead and eat gluten so my diet will be close to what it usually is before they do the colonoscopy. or if I should wait since they want to see what's going on despite the gluten free diet? Thoughts?

I'd stay gluten-free until you have a diagnosis indicating otherwise. If, for example, you come back with a Crohn's diagnosis, you'll know that you need to go on the refined grains, no beans, and cooked fruit/veg regime for a few weeks to see if that helps. It's the "whole" wheat that's getting you more than the "wheat."

If you don't get any findings from the colonoscopy, go through any potential sources of contamination again. I kept finding them for a while... none of which made huge differences individually but cleared up random questionable issues.

P.S. It's possible to have celiac + IBD. I think you don't need to go there quite yet...

Frittatas are great one-dish meals that are good cold or hot.

That's the point...

congrats on the GRE, both being done with it, and being happy about it. When do you apply?

Deadlines are all in the Dec 15 to Jan 15 range. Still struggling a bit to figure out where I would fit well with faculty interests and the oh-too-rare funding for more social-based, non-molecular nutrition. There's not really a perfect solution, and the most enthusiastic prof I met in out West, but it'll be a serious move to leave the east coast.

Great sympathy for a mono sufferer... not fun at all.

Never tried it, but perhaps you could bake it in the oven instead?
