In Topic: I Feel Way Better And Do Not Want To Get Sick Again For A Blood Test

01 February 2013 - 07:49 PM

I was the same way with not wanting to feel awful again. My Dr. completely agreed. He saw my liver enzymes go from the mid 200's to 27 in 11 days of gluten free eating. He said that was enough for him to believe it was celiac (after first saying he didn't think it was, before the blood tests came back :) ) Anyway, in the last two months I've had severe bronchitis, pleurisy, and a serious concussion. He said he did not want my body to go thru anymore trauma when the blood tests were so profound. I am just fine with that!!

In Topic: Daughter Diagnosed With Rheumatoid Arthritis

I have both celiac and rheumatoid arthritis. There are several things she can use to help (there is no cure) for her RA. I've had to be off my meds for a while now and met with a Master Herbalist. She has me on tumeric extract, ginger extract, fish oil, tart cherry juice, Vitamin D and I take oil of oregano extract for my allergies. These help a great deal, not like the meds do, but if she can't afford the meds due to the insurance issue, she can get these other things at a health food store, most are not expensive at all. Nightshades make no difference whatsoever to my RA but carbonated beverages and citrus fruits are HORRIBLE for me. Gentle exercise is very important, like the commercial says "a body in motion stays in motion".

In Topic: Dr. Stunned By My Results :)

I think my biggest struggle will be my husband, he's very much a "a little bit won't hurt you" type of person. I don't think he understands the seriousness of celiac and that a little bit WILL hurt me. So glad to have answers now.

Thank you for this thread. I have the atypical symptoms and also have elevated liver enzymes. I have been thru ultrasound and it came back ok. I see dr again next Thursday and will ask about celiac
