In Topic: Home Ec/ Cooking Class With Middle Schoolers - Any Ideas?

09 April 2015 - 05:58 AM

My celiac daughter goes to middle school next year.  She does have a 504 but I need to schedule a meeting with the school and determine how to handle as she has some kind of "life skills" class that includes cooking.  Following this topic... great ideas.

Gummy multi-vitamin and gummy probiotic.  Her labs were perfect when last checked with this combination. 

In Topic: Do Eye Problems Go Along With Celiac?

09 April 2015 - 05:50 AM

I just had optic neuritis in Feb/Mar which causes severe blurriness - this was my 2nd time (1st time was pre-celiac diagnosis).  At first the ophthalmologist indicated it was uveitis which can also cause blurriness but when it didn't improve with drops, diagnosed it as optic neuritis.  I'm not sure if it's my celiac or something else autoimmune going on with me.  I get the MRI and neurology follow up in the next couple weeks.  I had no signs of MS when tested in the past but they need to go through all the tests again to rule that out.  I wish there was a specific doctor that specialized in auto-immune conditions as a whole as I feel like if the MRI doesn't show MS, the neurologist will dismiss it as a fluke.  Would love to figure out what's causing my ongoing inflammation. 

In Topic: Multiple Food Intolerances - Do They Ever Go Away?

Great info - thanks!  I take Culturelle daily.  Have you found taking it at night more effective?  Do you have a brand of digestive enzymes you recommend?  I think I may need to add that to my regimen.

Any tricks you have for how you narrowed down your intolerances?  I'm so bad at keeping a food log.  I was diagnosed over 3 years ago and feeling pretty good until recently (with some ups and downs).  Now I'm dealing with bloating a few times a week.  My doc suggested trying the low fodmap diet but I notice that a lot of the items that many with celiac are intolerant to are considered good to eat on that particular diet.  I did a round of xifaxan to rule out bacterial overgrowth and take culturelle daily.
