Thanks Eastie,

I hope you are feeling better soon! :)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sidney_V._Haas  This is the Doctor who saved my life when I was two years old.  My mother lost a child from dehydration and nobody was able to diagnose her condition.  This man should be acknowledged.  The one good thing about having this enteropathy is that you learn to eat healthy at a very early age.

Eastie, I'm so sorry the antibiotic is hitting you so hard! I have no "body part replacements" nor screws unless you count the loose ones in my head.:lol::lol:

Having said that, I am also allergic to penicillin - I'll die even with an epi-pen - and allergic to sulfa drugs. I did rather recently take doxycycline and had no problems with it for several weeks. I was on an extended prescription of it though & after about a month, it started making me nauseous & then more so & more so & more so until I had to stop taking it because I couldn't stand being so nauseous 24 hours a day. Even probiotics did not help. However, you are asking about something for just 1 or 2 days for dental procedures so you might try doxycycline & see how it does for you. As a side note, as far as I know, all antibiotics can upset your stomach so it just comes down to individuals and their individual reactions.

Hi Squirmingitch (I know the feeling)  Thank you so much for your input on antibiotics.  Yes, you are correct.  It's a hit or miss on whether our stomach's are going to act up.  My adult daughter, who does not have celiac disease told me she was very ill when she took  Clindamycin.  She couldn't stop throwing up.  I happen to have a prescription for Clindamycin but it was over a year old and was hesitant to take it.  You are right  I will only need it a few times a year when I go for dental cleanings.  The biggest challenge for us Celiacs, are our doctors who don't take the time to look up gluten-free drugs when they write the Rx's.  I have celiac for 70 years now. The only doctor who was knowledgeable and  saved my life was a doctor named Dr. Haas.  He was called the "banana doctor" because he was the only doctor here in the US that knew what celiac disease was.  It's amazing that I like banana.  I will send you the  link and you can read about him.  I only wish I had met him before he passed away.  He saved hundreds of babies lives.  My mother had a child before me who was not diagnosed properly and she passed away at 5 months old....from dehydration.  We are lucky today that so much more research is being done and that we have sites like this.  Hope you have a great weekend.  Thanks again. Eastie

The minute you said "banana doctor" it rang a bell with me. I recall having read about that. Yes, he saved many, many children's lives.

Ah, ha! So you have had dermatitis herpetiformis also? Since you said you know the feeling........

BTW, that is why I was on the doxycycline for so long. Here, you can read the thread which will explain:

Thanks Eastie,

I think I'd heard or read about the banana doctor at some point.  I didn't realize he was linked to the SCD diet though.

I went gluten-free in Dec 2007.  When I first had celiac disease I am not sure though.  My parents said I refused to eat my oatmeal as an infant.  I don' t know if that is related.  I had some gut pain as a teen and was always skinny.  Somewhat bowed shins and back.  Could be related I suppose.  I didn't develop overt GI symptoms until I was in my 40's though.  I got as diagnosed as I ever expect to be in 2007.  I had gone gluten-free before I could get a doctor appointment and wasn't willing to go back on gluten for testing.  But Dr Alexio Fassano told me it sounded like celiac disease to him.  That was good enough for me.  I do have one of the genes for celiac but don't remember which it is.

I sure did change my diet though.  My garbage pile decreased significantly due to the reduced packing materials from not eating processed foods as much.  So I improved my diet a lot.  I try to eat mostly whole foods now.

Tonight I made sugar-free peanut butter fudge.  First time making fudge in decades.  It wasn't too bad!
