Anyone Know A Good Gi Doc In Bloomington, In?

Recommended Posts

Most mainstream docs are fooled into believing that Celiac's is *genetic*.

Celiac is genetic.

I know you're happy to have found some answers with Lyme disease just as I have been happy to have found some answers with adrenal fatigue often being a problem for those who are gluten intolerant because of the years of inflammation. I recommend to specific people who seem to have specific symptoms that aren't going away to see if adrenal fatigue fits, but I never suggest that they don't actually have celiac!!

At one point you recommended Lyme disease to me ... it wasn't a fit at all with my symptoms!

gluten-free 12/05

All the Lyme Disease symptoms fit me, especially that I had fibromyalgia. But I believe that I have celiac disease anyway, with the possible addition of either Lyme disease or adrenal fatigue (which can be caused by either Lyme disease or celiac disease, or both). My many food intolerances can also have been caused by adrenal fatigue or Lyme disease. I really hope that I won't be intolerant to all my problem foods for life.

But I don't believe that I will be able to eat gluten again, even if I get identified with Lyme disease (and I am seeing a doctor next week to be tested for Lyme disease and adrenal fatigue). There is no way that eliminating gluten would have totally stopped the diarrhea and terrible backpain within a day, if it was caused by Lyme disease!

I think that Lyme disease could be the trigger to active celiac disease, but not the cause. Genes have been identified that predispose people to celiac disease or gluten intolerance. There are no genes that predispose you to Lyme Disease, as it is caused by a pirochete, an infection. And it can be cured by various antibiotic treatments. No pills will cure celiac disease.

I am a German citizen, married to a Canadian 29 years, four daughters, one son, seven granddaughters and four grandsons, with one more grandchild on the way in July 2009.

Intolerant to all lectins (including gluten), nightshades (potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, eggplant) and salicylates.

Asperger Syndrome, Tourette Syndrome, Addison's disease (adrenal insufficiency), hypothyroidism, fatigue syndrome, asthma
