I never worried about cross contamination because i was originally told i was just intolerant. after going gluten free i felt so much better up until this last march. dairy and fructose have been giving me problems but both lactose and fructose test came back negative. 

this is what my gi doctor emailed me today

Hi Kaylee,

So it looks like your GI is finally convinced!  Has he confirmed that all testing for celiac is done now?  If he isn't planning anymore testing then you may as well start the gluten-free diet.  It does seem like doctors are hard to convince when it comes to celiac disease.  They sometimes don't seem to believe their patients could have it or that symptoms are real.  But the important thing is you have a real reason to start eating gluten-free now and can start healing.  Cross-contamination is more important to avoid for celiacs than for a person with NCGS.

I don't know what your current diet is like but I suggest a whole foods diet to start out.  There is no problem adding in some processed foods once your symptoms have subsided though.  There can be more problems with dairy than just lactose intolerance.  Some people have a gut reaction to casein, a protein in cow milk.  Also, when our guts are irritated many foods can cause symptoms because of the already present irritation.

I wonder how your GI would react if it took 6 years for his car mechanic to find and fix a problem? :)

 


Proverbs 25:16 "Hast thou found honey? eat so much as is sufficient for thee, lest thou be filled therewith, and vomit it."

Job 30:27 My bowels boiled, and rested not: the days of affliction prevented me.

Thyroid cyst and nodules, Lactose / casein intolerant. Diet positive, gene test pos, symptoms confirmed by Dr-head. My current bad list is: gluten, dairy, sulfites, coffee (the devil's brew), tea, Bug's Bunnies carrots, garbanzo beans of pain, soy- no joy, terrible turnips, tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, eggplant, celery, strawberries, pistachios, and hard work. Have a good day! 🙂 Paul
