Off Gluten 2 Weeks!

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I am STILL waiting on my blood-test results for the celiac panel. The labs came back on Wed of this past week. I have been calling daily, and they are on the Doctors desk for review. I still have not heard from him. I have a feeling it was negative because (I assume) he would have called otherwise? I will try again on Monday...

I have been off gluten for about 2 weeks now. The gas pain and bloating that occurred almost every evening has stopped! My mood is feeling better, I lost a few pounds, and my skin looks great!

I was wondering if the reynauds/sjrogrens symptoms will subside or slow down as well? Has anyone seen changes with these autoimmune issues by removing gluten? The reynauds started last year and seems to be getting progressively worse (especially with the cold weather settling in).

Also...I am still working on the thyroid stuff...I requested my test results for hashimatos, and will post them on here once I get them.

I don't think him not calling means its negative. It means the people at the office are lazy :P lol, don't know about sjrogens and gluten free but I do think most find it to improve off gluten. Thyroids are nasty things. Luck with that one too!

P.S. adorable kid in your profile pic. gotta love that curly hair B)

thank you! That is my 2 year old :) I can't bring myself to cut his curls! Thyroids are nasty-I haven't even began to figure that one out yet. I'm taking it one day at a time, and learning a ton!

Kathy,

Yes, many people see a remission/improvement in many other autoimmune conditions. My alleged Hashimito's before DX? --well, I do not even have it-- and I took meds for 2 years for no good reason. :angry: That was my experience, though. My thyroid is perfectly fine.

Look under the forum for RELATED Disorders or use the Search Forum up at the top of the screen and you will see that MANY people have posted about Raynaud's and Sjrogen's and Hashi's. Posting these questions under the topic "Off gluten 2 weeks" may not get you any answers as no one knows you are asking about these things in particular.

Okay? okay! ;)

Best wishes, IH

I was lost the first month or so, but people helped me :) and so, I wanted to point you in the right direction as well.

How you entitle your post --and in the right section---will get you the most responses!

If I can help you in any other way, I will. If I do not know the answer, I may know who will. These folks are the best! :)

I was going to say cute little boy, but my sisters little girl is always called a little boy so I thought I would tread on the side of caution. I wouldn't cut the hair either. Too cute! My little niece has curly hair but it is so thin and it doesn't grow much (shes 3 and it isn't even an inch long). I'd say a good time to cut it is when he starts running into the walls because he can't see :P Or when he can't walk because he trips on his hair. Either-or.
