Any Low On Vit D?

21 May 2012 - 05:07 PM

My vitamin D levels are very low again, in the single digits. I am on the 50,000 IU weekly treatment regimen. Does anyone else have trouble keeping their Vit D in the normal range?

Bloooooooated

07 February 2012 - 08:18 PM

Agh. I got glutened last Friday by a restaurant. I had thought I was doing better, but I think I slipped up at work and re-glutened myself by accidental cross contamination of my lunch in the company microwave. The timing for this afternoon's new round of reflux and stomach pain would fit that scenario. Now my stomach is swollen and blah I feel like crap. Except for the ravenous hunger pangs that have set in.

The bloating, gas, and massive appetite had vanished once I went gluten free about a year ago. I think I had forgotten how miserable I felt back then!

Today I Miss Biscotti

I don't really know why, it's not something I ever ate with any frequency. Nonetheless, I am having a real craving for biscotti today. :angry:

Health Risks Of Non-Celiac Gluten Intolerance?

23 August 2011 - 07:31 PM

The doc thinks I'm more in the gluten intolerant group than the celiac group, based on the degree of inflammation in my biopsy. Aside from the lack of difference of treatment (gluten-free diet), what's known about health risks of non-celiac gluten intolerance? Not that I am all that interested in eating gluten again, I can't imagine any good would come of that...

Is A Low-Gluten Diet Useful For An At-Risk Child?

02 August 2011 - 11:33 AM

Here's something I'm wondering about. They have not been diagnosed with celiac disease although no tests have been done. My wife recently had an upper GI, colonoscopy, and bloodwork done investigating an apparent case of IBS. Result: yes IBS, no to everything else. But my kids are still at higher risk for celiac due to my diagnosis and DQ8 gene.

Since celiac disease is considered to have a trigger along with the leaky gut and genetic disposition, is it possible that having the kids on a low gluten diet would be beneficial? I'm thinking eating gluten-free in the home, but not worrying if they eat a slice of pizza at school. If they ended up being diagnosed with celiac we would of course do the gluten-free diet 100%, but I think it would be hard to try to floow that without a diagnosis as motivation.

In other words, for a kid who's a candidate for celiac disease, does following a low gluten diet decrease their risk of contracting it?
