Sounds just like me! My mother had all the thyroid issues, but I had all the other symptoms...the heart stuff showed up around age 30. I went on a strict gluten free diet (you can't ever cheat!) and all my symptoms went away!
Have you been tested for Hashimoto's disease? It's an autoimmune disease and celiac disease is also...from what I've read online if you have one you have a good chance of having the other.
Hope this helps!
My Thyroglubulin Antibodies were at 68 last time I had them checks range was (0-40). So, yes I believe I do have Hashi's
I would give all I have to be able to go back in time and have had one person, one doctor, one book or website or anything tell me to try the diet even if my tests were negative. I was a textbook celiac in all respects except one, I showed a false negative on the blood tests for celiac that the doctors kept doing over and over and over as I slowly died in front of my young children. Please do give the diet a good strict try no matter what the tests say. In the end your body will tell you if it needs to be gluten free but you have to give it the chance to be gluten free first for a time.
Just talked to the nurse at the doctors office. She said that everything looked normal, even though she read out loud to me that my gallbladder function was abnormal. LOL. Guess I am going to wait until the end of the month to talk to the doctor. Lucky me. It is only functioning at 20%.
Scotty, you are talking to a girl who used to eat pizza as a comfort food You are talking to a gal who went to the doc on Tuesday after symptoms had persisted for two months, only to have them mysteriously "resolve" overnight on Monday Well, not really, but so it appeared. You cannot negliect a whole year of symptomatology because of one or two days of not feeling "so bad". Why would you still be here if you were fine??
Problems with foods often depend on what you eat with that particular food or other. Eat the food on its own, on an empty stomach, and see how you react. Just the pizza crust, without all the confounding mozzarella cheese and mushrooms and pepperoni and olives and whatever-else-you-like on your pizza. Yes, it is normal to have symptoms that aren't consistent.
Finish the challenge and take the test!! And when your testing is finished go strictly gluten free
It's gonna be tough if my test shows up negative to try a go gluten free. I'm gonna do it though and see how I fair out.
Or, more specifically, the kick-in-the-butt that forces you to do something.
Suprisingly the past two days my symptoms haven't been that bad. Is it normal to have symptoms that aren't consistant? I know they are bound to come back, the only symptoms that seem to linger are the dizziness and rashes.
