So results......Not celiac :D I was/am so relieved and knowing I havent potentially given it to my boys has brought peace to my life. So now I am now very gluten free, Im soo much better and 17lbs lighter! - the weight fell off 1lb a week over 16 weeks (last 1lb took 4 weeks) but really dont need to loose any more - now a healthy 135lbs and a size 10 although I don't really have many clothes that fit any more! ... My body feels like it has balanced itself now I have taken out my poisons (I can add weight/water retention to my previous list of symptoms) and lots of my symptoms have gone and others are improving - my underlying joint problem hasn't gone but it is a hell of a lot better :)planning on starting my supplements as soon as I finish nursing my baba but he isnt ready yet ... figure he will tell me when hes ready to stop
I have been occassionally glutened - my reactions are becoming more severe - but it helps to cement in my mind that this stuff makes me ill and completely takes away the craving for the glutenous gooey temptations surrounding me everyday. My diet is completely reassessed having my portions of oily fish, veg & fruit each day/week lots of salad and unprocessed foods - overall much happier - starting to look at baking but is hard to get the time with the boys... although I think they would love the gogodies at the other end and it would be nice to share with them.
Also developed other sensitivities and been on elimination diets ... raw tomato and sweet corn have been duly cut from my diet there is something else getting me but at the minute Im living with it as I have just returned to work after maternity leave and have my hands and head full....I will do it ... eventually...
