In Topic: Surprised This Morning With Celiac Diagnosis, Not Sure What To Do

07 October 2012 - 07:09 AM

I suffered for about 10 years looking back with the last three from hell before I received my diagnosis . Colonoscopy was positive for endoscopic colitis , blood work was always negative, finally after being told " I can't help you " by a neurologist for horrific head pain ... Sever depression and hopelessness ...
Finally a positive endoscopy by a celiac GI doctor in NYC.

Now everything makes sense and life can only get better!
Golden standard is an endoscopy for absolute diagnosis.
Don't be surprised if additional food allergies arise along the way, they seem to follow along with celiac.

I've recently started a very restricted diet and the from tips I read I eliminated almost everything . Now it's time to add one item every 3-4 days and see. Had brown rice pasta last night and keeping my fingers crossed. Hoping to keep my "run away train" on track.
Keep the advice and tips coming.

My children ask if it will always be like this and I often reply that maybe the fructose and lactose intolerance will let up .
Searching everyday for Rx items without corn Mvits too but no luck yet, will keep trying:D
Lots of brands and info to sift through ...thanks for the note:)

Thank you for the boost of support, I thought gluten free was hard, corn on top of it is not for the faint at heart. I've eliminated as much as possible, carry around my list of ingredients to avoid and try to cook very simply. Yes, will see my nutritionist in the next week or so as we'll as an allergist.
Haven't spoken to very many other people that are dealing with food allergies like these. Reading entries on this site made me realize that I'm not suffering alone. That others have managed to bring themselves back from the edge of the cliff to not only survive but to thrive:D
