Syptoms Of Glutoning

05 June 2013 - 03:26 AM

Hi all, me again. I finally got my blood test paper work and the only test done for celiac was
Tissur Transglutaminase IgA level. - Negative.
So I am no wiser.
I have been cutting out gluten for a week or so and the gurgling and discomfort have eased.
However, last night I had veg sos roll and quiche, and about 11.30 this morning I began to feel quite ill, sick anf trembly. It has passed now.
Could this be a result of gluten? I have had these episodes in the past when I was eating normally but have been putting it down to the B12 def. i don't think I have had an episode while I was off gluten.
It is so difficult to know what sypmtoms belong to what as I am also vit D def and have just had to incease my thyroxine.
Thanks
Jo

Could Be Coincidence

27 May 2013 - 02:24 AM

Since cutting out some ( not all ) gluten I have started to put on a bit of weight. Just a few pounds in two or three weeks. But as I have lost 4 st over the last year and a half, and still been falling slightly since last November, it seems a big coincidence. When I am well enough to shop I will check out the gluten free products at the supermarket and try to cut out as much as possible. Hope this is an answer for me at last.

Negative Blood Test

18 May 2013 - 01:22 AM

Hi all, just saying hello. My doctor says my blood test was negative for Celiac but I am still waiting for the paperwork to see which tests were done. I was low on vit D and my thyroid had dropped too, so that along with the b12 deficiency makes it difficult to know what my symptoms are down to. I am slowly cutting gluten out of my diet. I am feeling slightly better than I have in the past, so maybe my problems have all been due to thyroid and vitamin issues.

The Bodyshop Re Gluten

09 May 2013 - 05:34 AM

For anyone interested, I emailed the Bodyshop to ask about gluten in their products and this is the reply I got.


Dear Jo,
 
Thank you for your email.
 
Gluten is not cited as an impurity in our raw materials and our suppliers do not test for gluten.  If any of our products contain wheat, rye, barley or oat derivatives have gluten as an impurity; the level would be extremely low.  We are not however in a position to guarantee that the products are gluten free.  It has to be stressed that this is the same for all reputable cosmetic manufacturers.
 

Anxiety!

08 May 2013 - 04:44 AM

I have just been reading some old posts and discovered a thread about anxiety. What a relief! Not that I would wish it on anyone, but anxiety is one of my worst symptoms and I'm pleased to know I'm not alone. The very worst thing for me is the feeling of not being part of the real world. Like I am locked in myself and can't find the key to get out. It makes me fear I am going mad and will never be a normal person again. Could this also be due to gluten?
Thank you
Jo
