As some may recall from my topic "Test Results" started a few months back, I have been through the ringer with getting anyone at Kaiser to listen to me about my digestive issues. I changed insurance, had a long consult with a new GI who specializes in celiac and gluten sensitivity who listened as well as educated me, asked me to try the low FODMAP diet, and then made an appointment with a dietitian  (see her in 2 weeks), and said he has to look at my pathology reports from the endoscope. I will see him in 4 months unless things don't go well.

I have been doing this diet, which is gluten free, and I have never felt better in my life. Three weeks in and I'm not aching as much, my stomach is not hurting (except I made some gluten free cookies from a package and didn't realize they had inulin, which I am not supposed to have right now. Bad stomach ache! Lesson learned), and I am starting to get my energy back. 

I will not eat gluten again, so my focus with the dietitian will be eating gluten free forever. I will never know if I have celiac, but I do know that gluten is the main problem. I will know for sure when I start adding back in foods that are higher FODMAP, such as the asparagus I love so much and can't eat right now.

Family members we are staying with are understanding and accommodating because their daughter is gluten free.

Just wanted to share my success!

Good for you!!! I know this has been such a long painful journey for you SSLRunner but you've reached the end now & I hope you have no more doubts and can live with not having an official dx. After all, your body did give you an official dx, it just isn't signed by a doctor right?

I am thrilled to hear you're feeling so much better!

Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayy!
