In Topic: Diagnosed With 'gluten Sensitivity' & Gastritis. Help!

15 January 2014 - 07:33 AM

Thank you both so much. The stomach pain was so bad last night I couldn't sleep. I finally fell asleep some time after 4am (last time I looked at the clock). I woke up feeling better. I took 2 150mg Zantac on an empty stomach as prescribed by my GI doctor and 15 minutes later I juiced 2 lbs of organic carrots, added 1 tsp Barleans flax oil and slowly drank the juice. As of this moment I have no pain and am starting to feel hungry, which is a good sign. Normally I would reach for an organic banana but not today. Nor will I reach for the organic strawberries in the fridge because I read berries are not good when you have gastritis. I am starting the food journal you both suggested. Thank you again for your help and support.

In Topic: Ncgi Or Ncgs

Actually intolerant makes more of a statement than merely being sensitive to something. I fully agree and so does my pain. I do hope intolerant wins out.

So far as I know the two terms have been used interchangeably up till now, but there seems to be a growing preference for sensitivity rather than intolerance.

Thanks Mushroom. My doctor called it 'probable non-celiac gluten sensitivity' so I guess that's it then. Well, it's good to finally have a diagnosis.

No replies? I'm surprised. Maybe there's no answer and both are acceptable? But if so it seems to me that would cause even more confusion since so much confusion already exists about the difference between intolerance, allergy, sensitivity. Can anyone offer any feedback? Thanks.

In Topic: Just Diagnosed 'probably Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity'

I was diagnosed NCGI after a negative celiac gene test. I seem to be pretty sensitive to cross contamination. It is really hard to know at the moment how far to take gluten elimination. I guess I am 'lucky' that I react strongly, as that makes the decision easier.

I am planning to stay on top of the research, and see where it goes.

I was totally convinced that I had celiac from my symptoms, and was very surprised when everything came back negative. My gluten challenge was horrific and I had to give up after 3 weeks. That was a good convincor for me.
Welcome to the club :)

Thank you! Actually I'm happy to be in the club because it will force me to take better care of myself. I just called my younger brother and told him what's going on so he can keep an eye out for symptoms. One question though, is it NCGI (non-Celiac gluten intolerance) or NCGS (non-Celiac gluten sensitivity)? I've seen both online. Since I'm in the club I'm just wondering which club I'm in!! Thanks.
