Help. Need Some Advice

26 June 2014 - 06:47 PM

How many of your doctors initially thought you had chronic pancreatitis?

How many of you had fat malabsorption before or after diagnosis?

I'm asking mainly because the biggest thing doctors look for in chronic pancreatitis is fat malabsorption, but what if you have it because of damage to your villi instead? How do they check know it's one and not the other? My first GI was under the impression I think that I had chronic pancreatitis, because my fat malabsorption rate was high. However, my new GI hasn't said anything about it, and my colonoscopy and endoscopy tests are scheduled next month.

I don't drink, smoke, or do drugs, and the first two are main causes of chronic pancreatitis. I don't even have pain anywhere, which is a another typical sign for it. So, I'm just confused why a doctor wouldn't think damage versus chronic pancreatitis.

 


Gaunt Face/normal Weight

17 June 2014 - 12:34 AM

I've been gluten-free now for about four months. Not so bad, but I'm still getting excessive gas from lots of foods, like milk, soy (D), even sometimes peanut butter (but only when I eat it in large amounts), and I'm tired of it. My face continues to lose weight even though I've managed to put on three or four extra pounds. What is happening? 

Also, do any of you have more D whenever you get nervous, as if you had a nervous colon? I've had this since this all started and that's why I thought it was IBS. However, that doesn't cause malabsorption. I'm beginning to think I have IBS and something else.


Metallic Tasting

07 February 2014 - 05:01 PM

So, been on a gluten-free and sf diet for about two months now with no metallic tasting (I'm undiagnosed, btw). I had two bites of a cookie today and fifteen minutes later had metallic tasting. Anyone else?


The Uncommon Question

21 November 2013 - 08:21 PM

So, I've been on a gluten-free diet for a little over a month and decided to go out and try Dominos gluten-free pan pizza. Although they claim the ingredients are gluten-free, they clearly state that its made on the same tables as regular pizzas. There's a risk of cross-contamination. But that's not even my problem. I am undiagnosed and have went on the gluten-free until I can find out what's wrong. Here's my question. Since I've been off gluten for a month, I have not had a problem with vague metallic tasting, until tonight when I ate this pizza again. Nobody has been able to explain this to me, and I find it frustrating because it makes no sense. I was already tested for mercury and other poisonings, and I had none. I find it interesting that I haven't had a problem until eating this pizza (since being on the gluten-free diet), which is made on glutenous pizzas. Any thoughts?


Is This Normal For Celiac?

05 October 2013 - 12:16 AM

Over the past two weeks I've been experiencing some minor fatigue. Its weird too, because I can sleep ten hours, get up, then be tired still. I have a hard time getting out of bed, as well. I'll also mention that tonight has been the worst. I work third shift, which is 11-7AM, and I slept from about 7:30 yesterday morning until 5:00PM. By the time I got to work and around 2, I was ready for a nap! But it was odd, because mentally I'm not tired, but its almost as if my legs are weak and I just want to sleep. Is this common in IBD? I probably need to start taking my multi-vitamin again. Thanks.
