Swollen Ankles And Feet

Recommended Posts

Well, it could be that your system is just generally out of whack, digestion wise. In celiac your intestines can get damaged and be inflamed / irritated on an almost constant basis. So, foods that wouldn't bother you from having gluten in them may still cause a reaction due to the already existing inflamation and sensitivity in your gut. It's like rubbing a sore or a burn on your skin, it hurts. Also, some people seem to have problems with potatoes. If you have celiac there is a good chance your system will need some time to recover and settle down after going gluten-free.


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

Dr. is baffled. Some of my symptoms have subsided somewhat, nausea is still sticking around. She thinks it is my nerves. so I am now on nerve medicine and probiotics which helps with absorbing nutrients this sort of puts bacteria back into the stomach. Essentual enzymes was also on the list of things to purchase, this is to help my stomach break down the foods.

I will give it a try. Im up for anything to make feel normal. I lost another 9lbs in two weeks. My total weight loss is 43lbs since May. I get so hungry all the time I wake-up hungry in the middle of the night. But I also get queazy.

thanks for reading.

Did she run any further tests? Urine test at least to check for protein? Edema is often a sign of kidney problems and I hope she took it seriously.

Started Specific Carbohydrate Diet on 8-16-09 because son was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis and want to give him moral support.

Diagnosed with Minimal Change Nephrotic Syndrome in 2003. Discovered that going completely gluten-free put me in remission.

I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Psalms 27:13

Swollen feet could also be a sign of heart disease. If your heart isn't pumping well you tend to get blood pooling in the feet and legs. Also think you need to push your doctor to figure this out.


Gluten-Free since September 15, 2005.

Peanut-Free since July 2006.

oh gosh she did so many tests

glucose

hypo-hyperglycemia

addisons disease

h-pylora

urine

I do feel comfortable about the test she ran. I know some cheese has gluten. I love blue cheese but kills my stomach. How about goat cheese. Have you ever eaten millet.
