4 Years On Gluten Free, Dairy Free Diet And Still Not Much Progress

Recommended Posts

Long story short I have been on gluten-free diet for 4 years (and also paleo at the same time) and I still feel week, depressed, fatigued, my joints are in pain and I still have acne (and I am really no longer a teenager). But my blood results are all normal, same for thyroid. I have also tested pancreatic enzymes in blood and had USG but it came back normal. Same goes for parasites - no parasites were found.

 

As for depression I tried several SSRI nothing works it just makes me feel like zombie. 

 

I have been seeing fat and undigested food in my stool for 2-3 years already - and also my stool is yellow/orange most of the time. I decided to go to a doctor recently and he ordered some stool tests and prescribed me digestive enzymes.

 

So apparently they have found a large number of fatty acids in my stool. I believe taking digestive enzymes cannot create such false results?

 

 

Any ideas what can I do? Or what can be wrong?

What does your Doctor say?  Have you discussed the results yet?

If I recall, one of our members PowerofPositiveThinking had some enzyme issues. You might search for her postings (she did get better!). I think she also had pancreatic insufficiency (PI). The enzymes were a prescription and not Over the counter. I am mentioning it because it was hard for her to get a diagnosis and you did test negative on PI.

Here is another link from an old thread that might be helpful:

An article about enzymes:

I am glad you are working with a doctor. Colleen is right. It is important to rule out other diseases and not try to diagnose yourself, but it helps to be armed with questions that you have researched when you visit your doctor. They can overlook things as we all know!

thanks guys. the problem is that my doctor says that if i'm not loosing weight and I don't have bloody stool then I'm healthy. It is pretty discouraging to have faith in finding what is wrong with me :(

 

as for digestive enzymes I am testing the prescription kind but still not much effects here.

Powerofpositivethinking was not losing weight either. Click on the first link to her member page and then hit the reputation button. She wrote an article that you might find helpful. I tried to link directly to the page but was not successful.
