Hi, I’ve been really struggling to manage my symptoms of possible celiac disease and was just hoping for some guidance. (This is about to be very long so I’m sorry) 
 

Early December I had a bad fall and suffered some trauma to the head and was also under a lot of stress due to mock examinations. For a while I had been feeling fatigue but all of this was amplified after the fall and I was struggling to stay awake in lessons/ would just collapse after college. I was also having bad pain sometimes after eating and would get my worst fatigue after meals/ during the afternoon/ evening. I paid a visit to the GP and got some blood work done which came back low in iron and also high for celiac (very surprised but I do have a cousin with very bad celiac, been hospitalised etc). I got put on iron tablets and booked in for an endoscopy however this got cancelled due to the COVID-19 situation. 
 

My issue now is that my GP has advised to stay on the iron (I am starting my 5th month on 210mg 3x a day) and also keep eating gluten as we don’t know when my endoscopy will be as it could be a quick turn over (as in find out about it and then have it the week of) so we want to minimise chances of a false response. However I’m in such bad pain and so fatigue, my bloating is so severe I go up a dress size/ 2 and it’s like rock solid. My mum thinks I should cut out gluten for the foreseeable future to ease my pain. Just wondering if anyone can help with suggestions/ a bit of hope that things won’t stay like this. 
 

Many thanks

Hi,

You don't need to eat a lot of gluten to keep the antibodies active for testing.  The equivalent of about a slice of wheat bread daily is enough.


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
