Newly Diagnosed Here And Have Some Questions!

Recommended Posts

helllo! so glad i found this site on google.

my doc recently diagnosed me after doing a simple bloodtest and it came up that i had an egg white allergy and a gluten allergy. i am constipated often and feel sooo bloated at times. do you think that this has something to do with the allergy?

if so, how long until i de-bloat and you think i am regularly able to go to the bathroom.

thanks for your help! :D


- gluten free since August 2007

- endoscopy came back negative for celiac in December 2007

- bloodwork confirms egg allergy

- allergy testing confirms only banana, apple, melon, egg and environmental allergies

i get hives anywhere on my waist down and less bloating/constipation when i do not eat wheat.

I am newly diagnosed too and confused about almost everything.....Can any of the "pro's" tell me if A-1 sauce is safe...it seems like the ingrediants are ok but I am almost afraid to stray form the basics...meat, veggies and potatoes.


Confirmed by endoscopy and blood tests October 2007

I think if you have an allergy to gluten and egg white, that your symptoms should improve relatively soon after you eliminate them from your diet. Be sure to fully eliminate them.

You might post your test results here, that helps us know what you were tested for. Also post the normal ranges given on the results.

If you have more than a gluten allergy, and actually have celiac, the recovery process may be very much longer. Constipation is a common symptom for about 20% of celiacs. I have the problem too. It is better after 6 months Gluten-free Casein-free and 3 months soy free, but not totally cleared up. Vitamin C powder with magnesium have really helped to keep me able to go every day.

Bloating is still an issue for me.

With celiac, we have to be patient with the healing process because it takes the intestines 1-2 years to heal.


4/2007 Positive IGA, TTG Enterolab results, with severe malabsorption: Two DQ2 celiac genes--highest possible risk.

gluten-free since 4/22/07; SF since 7/07; 3/08 & 7/08 high sugar levels in stool (i.e. cannot break down carbs) digestive enzymes for carbs didn't help; 7/18/08 started SCD as prescribed by my physician (MD).

10/2000 dx LYME disease; 2008 clinical dx CELIAC; Other: hypothyroid, allergies, dupuytrens, high mercury levels

It really varies. Some people seem to get immediately better and for some is it slower.

If you continue to have problems, you might try eliminating dairy. That commonly binds folks up.

mftnchn, what is the name of the supplement you use and where did you find it? I was taking something I liked that had magnesium, some calcium, and Vitamins C & D. Then without any difference in the product that I can see, one day I noticed they no longer said it was soy free and there was soy lecithin in the glaze. But the web site hasn't been changed and still says soyfree, at least the last I checked. Grrr ... so I went to the store and grabbed the one magnesium supplement I could find that said it was free of everything I have to avoid (and called the manufacturer to confirm this). I only first took it last night, so I don't know if it will work as well as the other.
