  3. Lex_, Again I am afraid Ennis_Tx is right here. Ennis_tx eats right and is eating all the right things and still has to take/supplement with Magnesium. The magnesium is a clue? We need magnesium to make energy. I like to say as chlorophyll is to photosynthesis for the plant so is Magnesium for/to the Animal(s). Meaning we will run down without it. It is said "we waste away without enough Magnesium" Dr. Carolyn Dean wrote the book "The Magnesium Miracle" because people genuinely feel terrific when they take it. they are able to make energy again and function properly but the question remains why? are we low in it the first place if we need it so much. Iron plays the same role in the blood/respiration but people still get IDA. It turns out low stomach acid limits our ability to absorb Magnesium and Iron. see this link about the role of gastric acid in Iron absorption. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/7286584/ How do we know this. . . well it is has been studied and proven. look no further than the FDA box warning on PPI's entitled "FDA Drug Safety Communication: Low magnesium levels can be associated with long-term use of Proton Pump Inhibitor drugs (PPIs)" https://www.fda.gov/drugs/drugsafety/ucm245011.htm now this takes about 6 months of use to become low in magnesium but being low in stomach acid limits our ability to absorb Magnesium and why many people have to take it at 2x to 3x the RDA to get the desired effect. In fact the FDA says only stopping PPI's will reverses this condition. Obviously taking higher amount of Magnesium can help alleviate some of these symptom's but only raising the stomach acid will completely alleviate the condition. quoting "Although both patients' hypomagnesemia partially resolved with intravenous replacement, in both cases discontinuation of PPI treatment was necessary to stop ongoing symptoms and to stop magnesium loss." Hypomagnesimia is critically low Magnesiums akin to IDA. here is a thread about IDA and why this is so . . . low stomach acid leads to low Iron levels. I think it will help explain why Celiac's often have to take Magnesium to help with their chronic fatigue symptom's. I hope this is helpful but when I helped my stomach acid levels my Magnesium begin to be better absorbed from the food I was eating. Nuts are good Magnesium sources especially Cashews and Almonds. So is chocolate hence Ennix_tx cocoa nibs etc. . . ***** this is not medical advice but I know taking Magnesium Citrate helped my energy levels. posterboy by the grace of God, 2 Timothy 2: 7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things”
  4. Later Diagnosis

    Lots of people are diagnosed after 50 according to this https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3227015/
  5. Smaller meals throughout the day should help. I had the same problem but if it keeps up you may need to see the doctor again and get surgery. Anti-acids may help out too. It's been about 10 years since I had mine. Good luck.

    Nobody posted anything on my profile that I'm aware of but it wouldn't let me get into it. My email got hacked though right around the same time so I just figured it was connected. I'm not exactly Y2K ready. This is the first computer I ever bought and I still have a flip phone. Maybe it's not connected. Don't really know.
  7. Gluten Exposure for Celiac

    Ouch I am sorry . I know how painful bone, joint, muscle pain can last weeks for me . Hopefully you'll be able to clear it quickly if otherwise you have been healthy this season. As others suggested some TLC , vitamins, mineral to assist may help. I find accupuncture helpful too or massage. As for a gluten-free pizza I can no longer have them due to additional intolerances to milk. I in past days found sabatassos gluten free pizza carried at my local Costco pretty yummy if you can find it.
  8. Maybe it was not the chili. Maybe you are sick with the flu? Sometimes, we jump to the conclusion that celiac disease is the cause of our current symptoms. I know I have done this. Hormel is NOT considered good, but it is gluten free and safe. I give it to my kid on top of gluten-free pasta or corn chips in her thermos. Add plenty of cheese and it is pretty good. Though I admit, I used to think the burritos and strips I purchased at the beach shack as a kid were SO good! 😆 Even bad cooks can make a simple chili. Follow any recipe, but sub out the spices for Carroll Shelby’s Chili mix which is even certified gluten-free. My recipe is 2 or 3 pounds of cooked ground beef, 32 oz can of beans (I usually make my own beans), a can of diced tomatoes, and Hatch’s green chili’s. I suppose you could add some cocoa to change it up. Do not hold me to this recipe regarding the ratios of ingredients as I do not follow one as my batch size changes, etc. I cut back on the spices when I see my family sweat! 😆
  9. Anyone get diagnosed in their 60s. I have been sick for 5 years. Thinking it might be celiac. Can barely get out of bed !
  10. This is really a general post about alkalinity and being in the news these days. Alkalinity is totally trendy, but I encourage people to educate themselves about this and not rely on trends. I don’t mean to suggest that I know everything there is to know about this, but, for example this site (http://www.foodenzymeinstitute.com/articles/digestion-in-the-stomach.aspx?list=bydate) states: [Certain enzymes are] only active within the pH range of 3.0 to 5.0 and require the acid to maintain that pH. Pepsin is very specific in its action and is simply incapable of digesting food enzymes, which are very large molecules and are more than just protein. This sites (https://www.livestrong.com/article/459954-the-acid-base-balance-in-the-digestive-system/) states Antacids increase the pH in the stomach, which might make the enzymes in the stomach less effective. I think the focus on alkalinity and acidity in our foods currently en vogue is a huge distraction and a big waste of time. To me, it represents the two steps backwards in the notion of progress. I’ll end with Dr Andrew Weil — https://www.drweil.com/health-wellness/balanced-living/healthy-living/why-alkaline-water/ “Don’t waste your money. Alkaline water is being aggressively marketed for its purported health benefits. It is touted as the solution for everything from helping the body better absorb nutrients to reducing the risk of high blood pressure, high blood sugar, and heart disease, as well as boosting energy, helping you lose weight and slowing the aging process. It is also said to be “more hydrating” than any other type of water. Alkaline water is supposed to achieve all this by correcting the body’s pH, its acid-base balance. In fact, the human body needs absolutely no help in keeping its pH constant. “ /rant
  11. After my hiatus hernia was diagnosed they advised me to eat small meals spread out across the day, maybe that may help?
  12. Ah I've googled it, as you guessed I was thinking of chilli con carne, this is something different! Sorry I can't be of help. ps, no offence, am sure it's lovely but I did find this hilarious: https://deadspin.com/the-great-american-menu-foods-of-the-states-ranked-an-1349137024

    Are you saying people posted using your profile? Please report that to Admin. I haven't heard of anyone wanting to steal someone's profile to post on here.... but I guess it could happen.
  14. Dr In Cincinnati/n.ky

    My original email and profile got hacked and I couldn't get into it anymore so I created this one. I noticed that this was 13 yrs old afterwards. Thats what I get for putting up a post at 3am. I was up because I'm having a reaction to something and that's why I got on this site. It's been a long night. I think it is the Skyline canned chili I ate. I wish I had a testing kit because the company will not call or return my emails. They make the claim of gluten-free.
  15. Dr In Cincinnati/n.ky

    These posts are from 2004. Also - are you saying you have 2 or more profiles? Message Scott/Admin and he can combine them.
  16. Did you have a question? Maybe talk to the doctor about the hernia and if it is actually causing these issues? If it is, ask the doctor about treatment/surgery?
  17. Iv been getting sicker as I have hiatus hernia where I can't digest my food tidy problem as got worse over the year so bad now I don't want to eat much I'm ill in bed after just eating cereal and a chip sandwich yesterday so now I have sickness and pain in stomach also have the dirohea I'm also only bringing up bile
  18. I agree 100% but in that disclaimer they said in a restaurant setting. They sell canned chili in the local stores so I would think that I should be okay. I've tried to make my own chili but the problem is that I suck. I'm a horrible cook. Gordon Ramsey would probably slap me in the face. Cincinnati style chili is different from most chili out there too. There is chocolate, cinnamon, and some other ingredients that you won't find in other chili recipes out there. It's different and if you screw it up, not good. Give it a try. Like I said, if you make it right, the best you've ever had.
  19. Hi Nikkster, They often call the celiac testing a celiac panel. There is also a celiac screening test they sometimes do first, the ttg. You want to get the full celiac panel if possible. Not everyone shows up on just the screening test.
  20. Gluten Exposure for Celiac

    Maybe get your vitamin D levels checked. And take some K-2. K-2 is supposed to help vitamin D absorb into bones. Oh, and skip the Dominos next time! We all make mistakes at times,.
  21. I am actually trying to bulk up and body build with this disease. I go with a keto diet of fats and protein, I use vegan protein powders throughout the day. I used to use nutrakey V-Pro and now mostly use MRM Veggie Elite, blend, and do my own mixes with Naked Pea, Jarrow Pumpkin seed, MRM Sancha Inchi, and various blends from Julian Bakery pegan line. I use them in shakes with almond butter or sunflower butter sometimes using macadamia, pecan, etc. If I can get them and drink it throughout the day. I found large omelettes and quiche made with coconut flour and almond flour with leafy greens mixed in every day for breakfast works out great. I found some nut based breads (found online then started making my own in my bakery) and eat them toasted with avocado. And I always have 1 scoop pumpkin protein (great for recovery) and 1 scoop pea protein before bed. I sometimes take extra BCAAs from Jarrow to help prevent muscle break down Try adding a bit of coconut oil to everything to get in more fats. <.< recently trying some T boosters but not seeming much from them. Keto Fat bombs...look them up made with nut butters, coconut, coconut oil, and protein powder versions great way to stack on the calories.
  22. I'm from the UK so I can't help you on the recommendation, but instead of canned chili have you tried making your own? It's super easy to do, far nicer and cheaper than any pre-made variety and you can make a big batch and freeze small portions so its always available if you need a quick filling meal? There's no reason a chili should include gluten btw, but if they're telling you that there's a high probability of cc its best not to eat there in any case! Edit: checked their site: https://www.skylinechili.com/special-dietary-options.php#glutenfree They're basically telling you there could be cc
  23. I live in Cincinnati. One thing we are known for is chili and a horrible football team. I was wondering if anyone had one of those gluten detectors and how they work because I would love to test them. They claim to be gluten-free and even state that in their restaurants there is a high probability for CC. I even wrote the company several times but no reply. I just had some earlier and am up with a reaction to something. I'm leaning towards the chili. Is there any good canned chili out there that will not make me sick?
  24. I really miss Pizza. I've tried many different brands but never that good. I stick with the Freshetta gluten-free pizza. It has the CSA symbol on it meaning that it has gone through some of the strictest tests there are and can test down to 5ppm I think. It's about as close to the real deal that I've come across.
  25. Found it: "The Canadian Celiac Association (CCA) recommends that people with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity DO NOT consume the gluten-free labeled Cheerios products at this time because of concerns about the potential levels of gluten in boxes of these cereals...Based on the information provided to date, our scientific advisors are not convinced that the testing procedures described by General Mills are sufficient to detect these contamination “hot spots” in the oats and oat flour or in the boxes of cereal that may contain those contaminated oats."
  26. I got very sick from the Cheerios but never the Chex. I posted something about this before and I'll try to dig it up.
