In Topic: So, Do I Have Celiac Or Not?

29 July 2011 - 04:19 PM

Thanks for the replies guys!

My doctor didn't say that I don't have celiac, she simply said the biopsy and serology came back negative. She wants me to continue of the gluten-free diet until we get some more answers in regards to possible causes of the ongoing issues.

It's possible that I could be getting CC, I eat out a fair bit and live with my non-gluten-free parents. The thing is, my symptoms usually pop up 3-4 hours after eating if I get glutened. The recent issues have been happening more quickly after meals, I'd say within a half hour or so. I can eat the same foods and sometimes get sick, sometimes not. There are certain things I know always make me sick (lemonade, coffee and watermelon, for example), but they have nothing in common.

I guess I'll just have to wait and see.

Thanks again guys!

Rawr. You just confirmed my suspicions (which I didn't want to be true!). I've got a (second) lactose tolerance test in 2 days, so we'll see what that says. Like I said in the original post, she's also retesting the genetic bloodwork.

My doctor promised that 2 days was enough, but who knows. I think I'm going to start keeping a log again and see if there are any common denominators. I was so happy to get the celiac diagnosis because I thought I could fix everything...guess not.

I agree that it is somewhat understandable to not know what gluten means. But this poster was diabetic (double-checked several of her other questions), meaning this failure to google could have had serious ramifications. If you have an issue with a certain type of food, you usually know what you can and can't have.

The acidophilus sounds like a good plan, I shall check into that. Several people have mentioned the dairy thing to me, and it confuses me slightly. In the quest to diagnose my tummy troubles, I've been tested for lactose intolerance, and it's been negative. But does that not necessarily mean that cutting out dairy wouldn't help?

I unfortunately can not take a semester off. To be on my parents health care plan, I need to be attending school full time. I will definitely talk to my doctor thanks.

is there any way you and your boyfriend can live together? i dont know your circumstances... cultural/religious/economic... but i do know (at 38yrs old and after a lot of heartache)-> that relationships need attention- even if you two truly love eachother- the love isnt always enough- you both need nurturing... and if u had more time together- than you could be more flexible with your romantic time AND your occasional intestinal issues. it would take a little pressure off of you.

We are planning on moving in together as soon as we can afford it. Even though I'm working full time, he doesn't have a job (and he graduated college this year too, so he hasn't got classes either), so it's not really in the cards til that happens.

Thanks for your advice, I will think all of this over.
