Kidney Problems?

11 February 2011 - 06:41 PM

Hello, ( I posted this on the pre-diagnoses part as well, not sure how many people read both)

I have self diagnosed myself with Celiac Disease back in August. I have been feeling sooooo much better since I have been gluten free. It took me about two years to figure out that I had Celiac Disease and am wondering what kind of damage could I have done to my body within those two years of horrible symptoms.

Before I went gluten free I would get these really sharp pains in my lower right back (the doc says the kidneys). I noticed that when I went gluten free they almost went away. I also noticed if I were to get one of those painful episodes it was always around if I got glutened by something. So since I don't have health insurance I never went to the doctor for it. I finally went the other day because I had a really really really ext... painful episode for about 5 hours. The doctor felt around and said that he felt a mass on my right kidney and he also found blood in my urine. I had a CT scan today and the doctor called me to tell me he was stumped. Everything came back fine, there was nothing abnormal about the scan, he has no idea what is wrong with me. I mentioned to him I believe I have Celiac Disease so he said that it could be causing pain and that when my insurance starts next month to go to a Gastroenterologist. So my question to everyone is... Does anyone know if Celiac can cause kidney problems? And how would the doctor figure it out if I am gluten free? I would hope he wouldn't have to gluten me to figure it out...

Does Smoking Herbal Incense Relieve Symptoms?

22 November 2010 - 08:27 PM

I know weed will suppress the symptoms from eating gluten (and yes I know or am sure your body would still attack itself), but one time every year or so won't kill me. And will the herbal incense do the same? I am only asking because I really WANT some pizza, real pizza and I don't want to do anything illegal to have some. :) Has anyone tried any of the herbal incense? Wicked X? K2? Mr. Nice Guy? Or any others? And were you able to "cheat" without any symptoms?

Do You Pee A Lot?

29 August 2010 - 01:44 PM

I posted this on the pre-diagnoses but I might get more responses from the post-diagnoses section. :)

So as the description said I used to pee about every hour. I didn't drink a lot, but after measuring my input and output one day I found that I am normal, but I would always pee 3 oz, aside from when I woke up in the morning and it would be about 8 to 10 oz. The doctor told me that because my output was less then my input that there was nothing he could do, except maybe run some expensive tests, but I don't have health insurance. I have now been gluten free for over 2 months and I can now go between 2 to 4 hours without a trip to the bathroom. So has anyone else had a frequent urination problem, that has lessened or done away with the gluten free diet? Does anyone think it might be related to Celiac? Thanks :)
