Topics I've Started

Where Are These Food Sensitivities Coming From?

17 April 2011 - 02:34 AM

I have been dx'ed with non celiac gluten sensitivity and hashi's. The familly and I have all been gluten free since Sept. 2010. Since then, my youngest son and I seem to be developing food sensitivities that we have never had before. Foods such as almonds, pistachios, soy, are causing gingivitis, D, and mucous in the stools for me. My GI dr. has said that I may also have IBS as well. I still don't know what is causing the gingivitis in my son. It seems to get worse when he eats a lot of grains. We eat rice, but I thought rice was supposed to be the grain people are least allergic too. My son is only 4 yo. and loves his toast, cereal, and crackers. He is a picky eater and I am afraid he is not eating enough even though I offer him plenty of fresh fruits, veggies and meats each day. My son's allergy list includes: dairy, beef, oats, wheat, oranges, corn, peanut, soy, pork and banana.

Why are we having more GI problems now that we are gluten-free?

Test Results, What Does This Mean?

09 November 2010 - 09:58 AM

I received a copy of my genetic test results. I am HLA-DQ2 and 8 negative. So no celiac, I get that, but then is says:

HLA Variant Detected:
HLA-DQB1 0301
HLA-DQB1 0501

What do these mean?

Thank you for your help.

Cover Girl

I just chatted on line with a representative from Cover Girl Cosmetics. She said that none of the eye shadows, eye liners, mascaras, or blushes have gluten added to them. I asked about cc. She said that could see no reason for that.

So, has Cover Girl cleaned up their act? Are they safe to use? I would really like to find some make up at a neighborhood CVS that I can use.

Shouldn't I Be Feeling Better

I was diagnosed with gluten sensitive enteropathy last month. I have been gluten free for almost two months. For the last few days,I have kept a food diary. If I eat food with fried foods, I have loose stools the next day with oil floating in the bowl. (Sorry, this is so embarrassing.) Why is this happening?

What Should I Do Now?

15 October 2010 - 06:34 AM

My history is: been contipatated since my fist memories, depressed since kindergarten, dx'ed IBS in 1984, dx'ed hypothyroid in 2003, IgG pos. for wheat, dairy, egg, corn in 2004ish, bloating after meals, and I get nauseated after eating dairy. After doing some research, I went gluten free in Sept. Went to my doctor last week, he did some blood work.

ANA neg
DNA, double stranded neg
Mitochondrial AB neg
endomysial ab, Ig A neg
gliadin ABS, IgG and IgA neg
Anti-thyroglobulin AB 86
Anti thyroid persoxidase AB `1362
Free T4 1.17
TSH 0.748

final dx: gluten sensitive enteropathy and Hashimoto thyroiditis.

My doctor is sending me to an endocrinologist. I feel better on a gluten free diet. My question is, because I was gluten free prior to the blood work being done, I now know that the results could be a false negative. Is it worth the time, trouble and expense to get the genetic testing since i will be staying gluten free anyway? I have put the entire family on the diet in hopes of doing preventative medicine for future autoimmune diseases (daughter has vitiligo, husband has ankylosising sponylitis).

Thank you for your input.
