Test Results Back, Low Serotonin?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My test results finally came in!! :)

If you don't know me, what happened was that 2 weeks ago I had a 24 hr urine to test for Carcinoid (after having tons of other tests that came back negative for nearly a year).

The result was around 2, normal 5-15, however this is low, as opposed to high. So it rules out Carcinoid but it does indicate I have low serotonin.

I have been gluten-free for the 2 weeks after my test, but I do NOT feel better.

I am now feeling nauseous all the time now, like my stomach is spinning around and its dizzy. It certainly better than the pain, thrashing, and passing out after eating anything with gluten, but this still makes it impossible for me to even walk.

I am pretty certain I am NCGI, but avoiding gluten seems to bring on another symptom. I just don't know what to do.

What could this be? and what does low serotonin mean?

Greetings,

I don't know what low serotonin but perhaps someone will.

I am sorry you have been suffering like this. I hope you will feel better soon. When I am using natural means (such as diet) I want my body to have a response. It could be a pleasant response or an uncomfortable response, but if it responds something is happening! You may be making progress even when it doesn't seem like progress. I am about 6 months gluten free and my body is still changing its response. Just now it is going through some very profound changes. You are on a new path and may you be brought healing when you are on it!

Seratonins is often associated with depression, fibromyalgia, and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Here is a web site describing some of the symptoms associated with low seratonin. Have you been under a great deal of stress lately? This can cause levels to drop. Here is the link I found. Good luck with everything!
