The good in all that is that your doctor has tested you and is treating you.  Your diet will be the main issue.  Then your support in the way of nutrients, supplements, vitamins and medications. 


I was never tested for gluten/celiac.  I was found to have gallstones, ulcers, migraines and IBS.  Oh, almost forgot reflux.  As soon as the xrays were read and reports written, I was given many prescriptions and a xerox copy of some diet to follow.  With the bill ; /


Truly, I feel my main culprit was possibly a system wide yeast infection, but no doctor would consider this.  So I changed my own diet.  All organic.  Now gluten free and no genetically modified. 


I will not touch any grain.  Sugar.  Or those items that contain them.  No alcohol at this time, too.  Gave up cigarettes.  Switched to green teas.  It was a major life change.


I have been symptom free since 2007. 


My hope is that you give yourself time to heal.

Don't let your guard down.  It is not easy, but you are not alone.  Take care.

#862458 Celiac Vs. Gluten Intolerance

Posted by on 08 April 2013 - 10:06 AM

My daughter has two blood tests that will only claim a "sensitivity."  Her doctor let her decide if she wanted the more invasive procedure to determine damage/inflammation.  She declined the biopsy.  He said either way she MUST eliminate all gluten.  We have. :)


It's family members that scoff.  Even with the two separate blood tests showing positive results. 


Since going gluten-free (I joined her in support -- I am a confirmed IBS sufferer--I did have that awful scope), we are MUCH healthier.  Took a couple of hard long years to get here but --  YAY.  IT WORKS!!


Best of health and good vibes your way.  Gluten is a mess.  Don't deal with it :)
