Could This Be Dh In Child? Not Really Itchy...

08 May 2015 - 07:47 AM

Hi all. My 8 year old son has had this rash on his elbows for well over a year now. He says it doesn't really itch though I see him scratching/picking at it a lot. He has some digestive/immune/mood issues we're trying to figure out and I'm wondering if I'm totally barking up the wrong tree thinking it's gluten. He had attg iga test and it was negative. His allergist/immunologist said the rash is probably psoriasis but it doesn't look like it to me... thanks for your thoughts :)

Just Did Elimination Diet - Are These Symptoms Indicative Of Ncgi?

07 October 2014 - 11:31 AM

Hi all. I had the attg iga blood test run (it's the only celiac blood test available here unfortunately). It came back completely negative. I eliminated gluten for 3 months anyway and was feeling really good. Not perfect, but much better than before.

A few days ago I added gluten back in. I ate a lot of gluten over the course of two days. I felt okay afterward but did notice some stomach pain - nothing really bad. Yesterday I felt really weepy and depressed and then before I went to bed I felt like I got hit with the flu. I had/have a headache and feel completely weak and tired.

Could this all be from gluten? Is it normal to feel okay for a couple days and then get hit hard with symptoms at that point? My doctor believes there is absolutely nothing wrong with me so it's hard for me to figure out what the heck is going on with all these vague but debilitating symptoms! Thanks for your thoughts and advice :)

 

ETA - I also felt like I had a sore throat and that a cold is coming on... could that be from gluten as well? It hasn't progressed into a cold at this point...


Gluten Intolerance May Not Exist? Thoughts?

08 August 2014 - 11:35 AM

Sorry if this was posted already somewhere else - I couldn't find anything... I just came across this article http://www.forbes.co...-may-not-exist/  

 

What are your thoughts on this? I tested negative on the attg iga blood test (the only blood test available here). My doctors don't think gluten is an issue. I went on a gluten free diet anyway and I feel better. My GI issues have almost completely resolved, and issues I have been having with my monthly cycle have improved as well. My nails have always split and broken off and now they are super long and strong. I guess I'm just really confused - is this really all in my head? I know what we believe and think have a great power over us physically but really? Nocebo effect? It's all psychological? What does the celiac/NCGI community think of this? Thanks!


How Long Do You Need To Be Off Steroid Meds To Get Accurate Blood Test?

04 June 2014 - 07:45 PM

My 5 year old has a requisition in for the attg iga blood test (the only test available here in Alberta, Canada). He has been on nasonex (mometasone) steroid nasal spray daily for quite a while now. How long should it be off it before we take him in for blood work? Thanks so much :)
