I was diagnosed during of April of this year, and in the process of getting so sick, I lost nine pounds. I'm already a very naturally skinny person, normally weighing only 92 pounds, so I get very weak, very fast. I missed a lot of school that year, and eventually skipped the last week of school. Because of that, I didn't have to take my finals my freshman year.

I am now gluten free, lactose free, and soy free. I'm not even sure exactly how long this has been affecting since I've been lactose intolerant for 6 years and the gluten only started affecting me very badly 7 months ago, maybe the gluten caused the lactose intolerance?

My weight was down to 83 pounds and a couple of weeks ago I finally made it up to 90 pounds on the dot, and then a week later, it drops down to 86.5 pounds! It's never gone down that much at once!??? :huh:

It's back up to 88.5, but I haven't goe it to go any farther up.

I feel like I'm getting cross contamination at least every weekend, maybe a little exaggerated, :rolleyes: , and an upset stomach most days.

What can I do?

Maybe you could share what your typical foods are over a course of a few days and we could spot something suspect.

Also, I'm guessing you live with your parents and I'm wondering if your whole house is free of gluten. If not, there's always risks of icky gluten getting into your food.

Food is tricky.

I hope you are feeling better soon.

You're probably getting trace gluten is something or other. That happened to my mom. She drank Rice Dream rice milk and it contains barley. :rolleyes: Very annoying. But from my limited experience, that's what's probably happening.

I would defintly start doing a food diary(always keep it with you and keep track of everything that goes into your mouth) and right any sypmtoms you have down on that day as well...I use a little planner book. It helps narrow any problem food down! Much easier than doing an elimination diet.
