In Topic: Can Gluten Cause Impulsive Behavior?

21 March 2012 - 12:01 PM

I'm sorry to hear about your son's accident and the injury's he received. Gluten had caused me to have 3 TIA's.

In Topic: Any Others On Here Had Blood Clots Associated With Celiac Disease?

08 March 2012 - 08:04 AM

Celiac diagnosis in Fall of 2007. Massive pulmonary embolism in fall of 2008. The ironic thing is that I just asked a similar question on my blog today about other diseases of celiacs and a few people came back with blood clots. We have a lot to learn about celiac still.

I've had 3 mini strokes before I was diagnosed with Celiac disease and my Neurologist said it was caused from Celiac disease - I was also anemic. I am now taking low dose aspirin. They also found I have a hole in my heart.

Lisa, how did you choose your foods? How did you tell what you're intolerant to? I'd do anything to be rid of this fog and mental trouble. GAPS was giving me migraines so I'm doing RPAH Failsafe at the moment. Fruit and veggies you would put in smoothies are totally off the list. (I doubt you made green bean, pear, and cabbage smoothies!) Failsafe relies heavily on grains and legumes, fresh meat, and has a very restricted list of vegetables.

I don't want to hijack Golden Girl's thread but it sounds like we're coping with a lot of the same issues. I don't have the bloating or GI issues but I'm dizzy and tired all the time and I can't concentrate or remember things.

Hey it is OK to hijack my thread hopefully we can get this under control together.

I found the Zand stuff at a local Vitamin Shoppe. I'm sure you can find it online as well. http://www.vitacost....Support-Formula It does contain a little oat seed fiber, which may have trace gluten so pay attention to how you feel if you take it. I tolerate it fine but it might not be OK for someone who is super-sensitive.

Looks like your thyroid is OK, as long as you don't have symptoms of hyperthyroidism. Your heart doesn't race when you first wake up, does it?

I'm having brain fog myself and exploring additional food sensitivities. Dairy makes me tired and I'm on a food chemical elimination diet at the moment that knocks out amines and salicylates. Don't know if it's going to help.

I also forgot to mention I'm finding red Korean ginseng mildly helpful. You only want to take it in the morning. I got that at Vitamin Shoppe too.


What do you eat for a food chemical elimination diet? My heart doesn't race when I wake up. I will pick up the cleanse and the ginseng asap , I am very anxious to try them. I have been using unsweetened coconut milk and coconut spread, dairy bothers me.

Thank you for all your replies. My TSHR was 0.27 the range listed is 0.50 - 6.00 they stated it was low but not concerned told me get an iron supplement and will recheck in 4 months. I stopped taking B12 since that was high. Where can you buy the candida cleanse? Thanks again for all your help!
