I Feel Like A Hypochondriac

Recommended Posts

thanks for all your advice, Shauna. I still need to get a lot of results from these tests so I'm not sure if it's gluten or some other additional foods that are causing the problems. I'm hoping to get these results soon.

He Cool, I understand you wanting to wait until you get your test results but I can tell you that sometimes there will be nothing showing on tests and the food will still make you sick.

Soy and dairy as well as gluten give me depression. I can have just 1 piece of cheese and I will get depression symptoms within 24 hours. I know that for a fact because I tried it in an elimination diet and I had the tests for dairy and it came back negative, so go fgure.

It wasn't until I went to just the whole foods diet that I started feeling better. No processed foods at all. The only things so far that I can eat that's processed are Lara bars, Kind bars, Santitas corn chips, canned Hormel chicken and cholesterol fee mayo. That's it. The rest is just plain meats, some veggies, and some fruit, because of more intolerances.

Please quit eating the dairy. I tried the goat cheese and it still gave me the problems. I'm hoping you start feeling better.

I won't stop eating dairy or other food groups besides gluten until I get more concrete information. I've been warned about "false positive" IgG tests, particularly from alternative clinics. I've read from reliable sources including John's Hopkins and Mayo Clinic doctors that often these tests can be quite inaccurate and people end up going on super strict diets and avoiding foods that they aren't even intolerant to in the first place. I'm requesting that both the University of Chicago and the alternative clinic send me my test results as soon as possible. I've spoken to the nurses from both and they are on completely opposite ends of the spectrum in terms of most everything. However they both have told me that I'd probably need to go on a strict elimination diet. And they both have told me that my IgA levels are still high. But that's all they agree on. I'm more apt to go with the University of Chicago Celiac Center's suggestions than the alternative clinic, which virtually no one has heard of before.

All these IgG food allergy tests that I got at the alternative clinic turned out to be $4411! Fortunately, my insurance covers most of it. I still owe them at least $300, though.

I hope to find more answers soon.

    Mistakes can set you back.  Remember, celiac disease is an autoimmune response.  Once triggered, it can go off for days, weeks or months.  Like my family member who has MS.  She would have severe flares that would last for six weeks or mor...
