In Topic: I Don't Know Where To Start!

01 February 2013 - 10:06 AM

All of my husbands tests came back negative. It is not H. Pylori, it is not Celiac. It is not Crohn's or Colitis or cancer. The doctor also said that he didn't appear to have Ulcer Disease. She was baffled. So we are back to square one. She said that she had no explaination for his stomach ulcers. His toxin screening was clean. The only thing that we know is that going gluten free seems to have really helped him. Even though the doctor said that his villi are normal. She recommended some over the counter drugs to help heal the ulcers. Has this happened to anyone else? We are staying gluten free for the time being. But it sucks not knowing anything.

Ulcers, in some causes, are caused by a certain type of bacteria (there is actually a document case where a scientist took a vile of said bacteria, downed it, and got an ulcer from it). What was he given to treat them with?

He needs to stay on gluten for test results to come out accurately.

Here is more on the bacteria i was talking about http://en.wikipedia....cobacter_pylori

He hasn't been given anything to treat them with as of yet. They have no idea what is wrong with him. We have another appointment at the end of the month and I plan on asking her how to heal them.
Thank you for the information on bacteria. I will make sure and discuss it with the doctor.

Hello and welcome to the boards.

I am assuming with all his testing that they ran a celiac panel on him before he stopped eating gluten, and that one of the biopsies was for celiac along the way.

Those ulcers sound like they must be really painful, and again I am assuming they are not h. pylori.

Until you can get to the allergist I would suggest the blandest of diets; things like mashed potatoes, bananas, applesauce, canned fruits, white fish, spinach, swiss chard, squash, scrambled eggs, fruity herbal teas, soups made from bone broth. See how he copes with something like that.

Thank you for the food ideas. We have an appointment with the doc to hear the results of the last round of testing. I will make sure and ask exactly what they tested for in the biopsies. I just want to make sure that we are feeding him foods that won't cause more damage in the mean time. Thank you again! I will continue to post and read this forum as we get more information. So far it has been really helpful.
