RoKoCa

Need Suggestions! Gluten Before Testing..

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi there. I'm new here and somewhat new to the idea of Celiac Disease.

I plan to get tested ASAP because I'm currently MISERABLE when I eat gluten. I won't have insurance until the 1st of November, most likely. Last year I went gluten-free for three months and it was the best thing I've ever done. It was at the advice of a nutritionist (had nothing to do with Celiac at the time). Since I started eating normal (gluten) again last September, I've only felt worse and worse.

Lately I've done a lot of research on Celiac Disease and it seems to fit and the diet is the only thing that makes a difference. Here's my dilemma: I plan to get tested as soon as my insurance kicks in (November 1st I believe), until then I know I'm supposed to continue eating gluten as normal. BUT, it's so bad at this point where I eat and am so bloated and in pain.. By the end of each day, I'm miserable and can't sleep because of the way I feel. Exhausted but can't sleep! Any suggestions as to how to eat normal before my tests without wanting someone to shoot me before each day is over? Haha. I know, a bit dramatic, but I really do feel horrible and am just tired of this. Argh. Sorry for the melodrama and rambling, but if anyone has any suggestions, I'd really appreciate it.

I appreciate any help and support!

K.M.

I had the same problem as you, I was between insurances when I discovered gluten was the problem, but I decided to skip testing and go gluten free right away because I couldn't stand being sick for one more day. So my doctor considers me gluten intolerant.

You need to decide whether all the suffering is worth the diagnosis.

I'm one of those that needs the actual diagnosis to keep myself ontrack with the diet. My will power is horrible. But so much for that.. my husbands company just went union and he's now not eligible for insurance for 5 months. So I'm out of luck :( Argh. Sorry, I'm just a bit depressed because I thought I'd be able to finally get some answers soon. More waiting.
