Topics I've Started

In The Pet Care Industry

09 November 2013 - 12:10 PM

I have run a boarding kennel for dogs for the past 25 years.

I was diagnosed with celiac disease 2 years ago.  To the best of my ability, have been following all the guidelines from my doctor and nutritionist, and of course reading incessantly blogs such as this.


I have a question though, since I am constantly surrounded by dogs that lick my skin, have to feed dogs their food that has gluten, and their treats that have gluten, am I making myself sick?


I have had numerous colonoscopies, and endoscopies that show little to no improvement even after following all the rules of my food intake - is it the dogs that are making me sick?

Blood Tests Negative Biopsy Positive ?

I am very confused about if I actually have celiac or not. I was diagnosed last year after having an endoscopy and colonoscopy for stomach disorders unrelated to any kind of celiac disease..

All blood tests are negative however the biopsy done was positive. Although I am a 58 yr old woman who has never shown any gastric problems like most celiacs present, I do get migraines, have anemia, low blood calcium, and have osteoporosis.

I have been on a gluten-free diet for a year, as strict as I know how to be. My labs all improved as far as anemia & calcium levels. Still blood tests are neg for celiac, however biopsies once again positive, could this be something else??
