A Decade of Determination Pays Off

This will be my shortest blog. After a decade on The Specific Carbohydrate Diet, I am once again able to eat occasional moderate amounts of restricted sweets and starches with no apparent consequences. Since my celiac disease was never formally diagnosed, I cannot claim it is curable or was cured but it is now six weeks since I resumed eating foods I have not had in ten years as well as foods purported to be cross reactive with Latex Allergy. Ultimately I decided to be very cautious and not push the envelope since the SCD has been

enjoyable and a great asset to regaining some resistance to chemical sensitivities. I also developed a real enjoyment of SCD recipes and still prefer many of them over their conventional counterparts. I am not suggesting others digress from their gluten free diets, just reporting what has happened in my case so far. Scott has suggested I monitor my maintenance with periodic blood tests for anti bodies and I plan to investigate that as it makes good sense. Finally, I do feel it is easier to maintain a proper weight with SCD although it is not a weight control program.

As always, Celiac.com welcomes your comments (see below).

Carol,
Thanks for sharing your success story with the SCD. Many go gluten free and have a hard time healing because they do not consider other foods. Your story will hopefully be a window for others to get healthier.
All the best,
Dr. O

After my diagnosis in 2010 I went on the gluten free diet. within several years I found I could no longer tolerate many of the GF items I was used to and embarked last year on AIP diet, I have done further research and and going to start the SCD diet. I cannot believe that I did not see this in all the times that I googled celiac disease. It was only recently that I heard it was the original protocol for celiac!!! How sad! I knew it was helpful for children with autism and that is how I first hear of it and the gaps diet, They seemed so strict and I didn't think they would benefit me like the AIP diet...had no idea as I said about the early days of the diet. I am most likely now dealing with another autoimmune disease as well as arthritis and that is why I thought AIP was a good idea. It was a great diet and I will probably go back to it but I think I now need the other restrictions to truly heal! Thanks for sharing

Yeah I have 2 stationary pedal bikes. I use one on the desk sometimes while watching a show and work out my arms.

Absolutely nothing to apologise for Awol. I'm sorry for getting on my sugar hobby horse. In any case I'm a dreadful hypocrite, cutting out fruit juice but still indulging cravings for gluten-free cheesecakes and the like I wish I had some advice for you. Bone broth helped me, I think it can ...
