Spent the night in the hospital with what felt like a typical gaLlbladder attack. HVe had a few over the years, always textbook symptoms, but had a HIDA scan a few years ago and ultrasound this spring and always say gallbladder is fine. This time white cells and pancreatic enzymes were both elevated. They want to do another HIDA scan. I have a theory that I have gallbladder "attacks" after accidental glutenings (usually a few days after the initial sickness passes, as that seems to be the case.) My theory is that gluten irritates the gallbladder. Of course, the gastro shot that theory down cause everyone knows celiac ONLY affects the small intestine, right?
Anyway...just wondering what your thoughts are. I know elevaTed pancreatic enzymes are common in untreated cceliacs, but mine were normal before. Would they go up in response to a glutening? Do I need to just get the stupid gallbladder out? This is the 2nd aTtack this yeAr and it was a bad one!
My 13 yo dd is getting a 504 plan due to excessive absences that would otherwise give her a failing grade. (Over 6 is automatic F) she already has missed 5. She is a straight A student. She is homeschooled but is dual enrolled in 9th grade at the high school. Was hoping she could manage half days but it isn't going so hot.
So, I intend to have them allow for absences obviously. Unlimited restroom use. (They only get 6 passes for whole year!)
Time to make up homework missed. Tutoring of missed topics if/when it becomes necessary.
That's all I can think of. She is ale to know what is safe to touch obviously, doesn't eat lunch at school and is extremely cautious about wiping down her desk every time she sits at it. She is really sensitive to cc so she takes no chances
Who would rather just keep swallowing pills and suffering than even consider changing their diet!
My dear friend, with her own slew of health issues just can't fathom putting her kids on Gluten-free Casein-free diet to see if it helps their ADHD, depression, eczema, bedwetting and constant overwhelming fatigue. Because "that is all they eat is gluten and dairy. I just couldn't do that to them. And its too expensive. We are really broke." Argh. The whole house if filled with crap, they eat out constantly and spend a fortune doing so. And she tells me tonight that since the Vyvanse isn't really helping the 10 yr old that she wants to switch her to an antidepressant instead! I have talked a blue streak to this woman. I have given her countless websites and printed info. I love her to death. But I want to beat her with a stupid stick some days....
For our 20th anniversary, this is what I want. A week at the beach with NOTHING else to do but nap in the sand. I don't want tourist attractions. I don't want to spend a lot of $. I want solitude and no cell reception. Any ideas?
My 13 yo daughter had her visit with ped GI at Celiac Center at University of Iowa last week. Very thorough doc and seemed to turn over every stone. Sadly...no answers. Did rule out porphyria, Lupus, SIBO and fructose intolerance...which was odd cuz she got sick as soon as she drank the fructose solution.
Bananas, apples, oranges, grapes, tomatoes and honey have her instantly sick, as does rootbeer and any clear pop. Oddly enough, colas are fine.
