I Need Some Advice!

Recommended Posts

last summer I had severe diarrhea every day and was diagnosed with ibs. I did some research and cut out wheat from my diet altogether and felt so much better and rarely do I have diarrhea now. HOwever, I've been extremely bloated AND I have an itnestinal protozoa that the doctor doesn't really know much about other than it's hard to get rid of...anyway, I went to a gastro dr. and he totally dismissed my theory that wheat was causing my diarrhea. Now i have the opposite problem. Upon his advice I introduced wheat back into my diet. When I left his office ona Friday afternoon I went to work and ate a cookie. Went home and ate a fiber one bar and for dinner I had some soup that had wheat in it. The next morning I had a bagel andd from that afternoon on for two days I was in gut wrenching pain and could not be far from a toilet all weekend. I knew I was right, so I went back to mydr. and he said " you must have had a bug, it's NOT wheat" He also said that if it were wheat that I would have been born with that problem. I did test negative for celiacs disease by a blood test. I had been eating correctly for 2 - 3 months when I had the blood test. My feeling is that I'm intolerant or allergic to it because I ate a sub 2 days ago just to see one last time if he was right, and of course I was ill with cramping, pain, and diarrhea for almost 2 days. My question is, what test should I take next and what type of doctor would I go to that can tell me if I have an allergy or intolerance to wheat.?

Wheat is difficult to digest for anyone. So, if you have an intestinal protozoa, and conceivably other parasites in your intestines, then wheat definitely could cause symptoms even if you don't have celiac disease. I know that was the case for me.

I would google your parasite and see what herbal remedies for long term are suggested.

I had klebiella and citrobacter bacterias, babesia protozoa, and bartonella bacteria wreaking havoc in my intestines, and once I took care of that, I can now eat anything with no digestive issues. My symptoms looked just like celiac disease.

You might check out the Humaworm thread .... I had a lot of luck with that. I also took Theralac and Ultra Flora probiotics to build up the good stuff.

I did one round of Humaworm, then 90 days later did a second round. I was on Levaquin for 12 weeks for the Bartonella (a tick born infection). For the babesia (also a tick born infection) I took mepron and malarone plus antibiotics. You wouldn't blindly treat bart or babs without a proper Lyme specialist or proper testing.

Did your doctor tell you what kind of protozoa it was?

Your doctor is an idiot. Try to find one that isn't so stupid. :)

Blood tests are not always positive when you have celiac disease. You aren't born with it. Sheesh, tell your doctor that he has to read something other than Golfing Digest to stay current with his field.
