In Topic: Probiotic Question

29 July 2012 - 06:49 AM

I dont have an issue with putting on weight (I'm actually trying to lose it!) but I did have an issue with a high amount of probiotics in Kefir. I drank a small amount of Kefir just to see if I liked the taste and about an hour later I was curled up on the floor screaming in pain. My nutritionist told me that a lot of people with Celiac have a hard time with high amounts of probiotics at least until they heal more. She doesn't want me to drink any more for a long time until I can work it back in slowly. How long have you been gluten free? Maybe you should hold off on the probiotics until you've healed more??

I have been gluten, dairy, soy and grain free for about 17 months now. 2 months ago I had my second endoscopy with celiac panel and the doctor says everything looked great and healed up.. The weird thing is I have actually taken this specific probiotic before, but never had any issues with it other than a little occasional gas... but then again, last time I took it, I was not particularly having belly issues to start out with other than the normal healing pains..I am starting to think that the pains I am feeling right now are the good bugs and bad bugs waging war.

In Topic: Thyroid Problem?

I am getting a referral to see an endo as soon as I can. I can deal with the majority of these symptoms for now but the only thing that is really bothering me is the weightloss. I was underweight to begin with and I just seem to continue shedding pounds. It is really starting to scare me.

Well doctor called me and gave me the brush off i believe. They called me and left me a message saying my TSH came back normal and I had a clean bill of health... WTH?!?! I have palpitations, anxiety, insomnia, shaky hands, clamminess and I am eating more than I have been in the last 4 months and continuing to lose weight this last 2 weeks?!?! But there is nothing wrong??!! Hell, 2 months ago all I was eating was salads and veggies for a while and was still maintaining/gaining weight.. this doesnt make sense..

I asked him to run all the tests you specified and he said they would check but looking at my lab bill its looking like they just ran TSH and CBC... I am so frustrated right now!!!

Symptoms have drastically faded today. Was still a bit rough this morning but as the day progressed I felt better. I pretty much cut out any foods containing high amounts of iodine including iodized salt for the last 2 days and I seem to be getting much better. Even have some energy to clean the house a little today. So wierd how these symptoms can come and go like this. Hopefully I will have some answers on Tuesday when my results come in.

Yes, the more thyroid hormone, the lower the cholesterol. Low cholesterol is another symptom of Graves' disease. High cholesterol is a sign of HYPOthyroidism.

Keep us posted!
