In Topic: Sensitive To Gluten And Milk, With Mostly Psychiatric Symptoms

Ah, yes, probably wouldn't have to eat both at a time.

How long would I have to eat gluten again for antibody levels to rise?
I think Iga was what we tested a year ago with negative result though.

I have considered dropping soy too, but I don't seem to have a problem with it. At least it doesn't seem to be interfering with the improvements I get
from my current diet. I may consider dropping it once the improvement from gluten and milk subsides, but those seem to have been the major ones for me.

Ok, I think I have just done a ferritin test then. Will consider a more extensive test after discussing with my doctor, thanks.

In Topic: Old Hag Syndrome / Sleep Paralysis

I have this sometimes, combined with poor sleep for pretty much my whole life. I had this last night in fact, and it lasted for about 10-30 seconds.
I am sensitive to both gluten and milk and have just started a diet, but haven't seen any change to this yet (sleep quality seems a bit better though -- I dream more the last week than I usually do in a month).
I have been speculating this could be related to gluten and/or casein sensitivity in some way as narcolepsy is associated with autoimmune reactions to the orexin system (critical component in the regulation of sleep, wakefulness and REM). Haven't seen any research investigating this though.

In Topic: Sensitive To Gluten And Milk, With Mostly Psychiatric Symptoms

I am not consuming milk or gluten anymore. The testing I did was an endoscopy plus a biopsy, and I thought any damage as revealed by these tests would be too extensive to heal in just a few weeks to heal, unless I am mistaken? I have not tested for antibodies or anything like that yet. They didn't see anything on the endoscopy, but results on the biopsy will be back in 2 weeks (not sure what exactly they are testing it for though).

And thanks for the welcome.=)

Whatever I have experienced the last weeks seems some kind of withdrawal. Most of the new issues seem to have calmed down by now though, but I still don't feel as good as I did for the first week.
6 months, gee... I have been mostly clean for about 1 month now, almost clean for 1 and a half. Seems like I still have some way to go then...
I don't think fiber was the issue really, I started to consume soy and pure oats (guaranteed gluten free by Sweden's food agency) early in the diet switch, so if anything I think I am getting more
fibers now than I did before. Anyway, whatever made my stomach upset, it seems gone now.
I have tested my vitamin and mineral levels several times before without anything low showing up, including several D vitamin tests.
What is a "complete panel" though? Does it differ from a normal test (which I suppose is what I did)?

Yeah, whatever I have seems to be "silent" in regards of GI symptoms. Stomach/GI has never been much of a problem for me, until I began the diet... The issues I had are gone to 90% now, with only some minor pains once or twice a day at most, no pains at all at best. How long did it take for you to improve in your bipolar-ish symptoms?

Considering how I now seem to react even stronger than before to gluten and milk/casein, I am not that eager to eat it again for any longer period. Perhaps a week at most of one or the other.. Is it that important to eat it for a prolonged period for the antibody tests (assuming the endoscopy/biopsy doesn't require this too, see above)? I will discuss this with my doctor and a specialist in this if we can find one, but I hope I won't need to eat either again for several weeks to get positive tests... I believe a diagnosis doesn't strictly require a positive test because they are not yet 100% as of today (for non-celiac sensitivity, anyway) -- does anyone have an idea? From what I have read a response to food challenge would be enough, even if no antibodies are found.
