  2. Gastroparesis

    Hi, My name is Mary, your symptoms sound like what I have been going through the past 3 Years. I was diagnosed with celiac, after 30 years of IBS and Hypoglycemia. I got wose suddenly with BAD IBS, chronic diah. within the next 8 months, I lost 47 lbs, had malnutrition and dehydrated. The Dr. wrote in, FAILURE TO THRIVE. That scared me. I had read about celiac, I had the symptoms, ask her to take a blood test for it. It came back positive for celiac. I read all I could, got in a support group and stayed strictly on the gluten free diet for over a year. I went to a gastroenterologist for other GI problems I was having, he wasnt aware of my gluten free diet or past history. He did a lot of tests, I had gastroparsis, BUT he said YOU DONT HAVE CELIAC. go on regular diet, just eat small meals. I did that. In my heart I knew I had celiac, but he isnt a Dr you disagree with. HE IS RIGHT, andd doesnt like it if I disagree. The past year, symptoms ared worse, He has diagnosed me with C difficile, took 3 months of different anti biotics to get rid of, I requested a colonoscopy, He did some biopsys inside and diagnosed me with collagenous colidtis.(its a immflamtion swelling INSIDE of your bowel) He put me on a steroid to reduse the immflam. The only symptom you have is watery non bloody diahr. I wonder if all these bowel problems are origanally from celiac. I have been on only 8 ensure nutritinal drink for over a year. so I know Im not getting gluten. I have tried the same things you have tried, and not much help. I had reactions to the reglan also. I think, something needs to be found, for people that are very sensitive to a lot of things. The liquid diet helps some. But I still get bloated, and pain I am going up to OHSU (a big hosp. with the newest things out there. Ad team of professionals work with you. At this poing, after a CT scan and Xray, showed, small bowel loops, partial blockage in the small bowel and some other things I dont understand. After a lot of research, I am beginning to think, that gastroparesis and other bowel problems point back dto undiagnosed celiac, before we even knew we had it. I have rambled on, Im sorry, I didnt help you with any answers. If all the celiacs started stomping feet for answers MIGHT HELP. I am so thankful for this site tho, I get a lot of info. Please take care of yourself, I know what you are going through, and Im so sorry. If I find any answers that are helpful, I will get back to you. Mary
  3. Shay, I appreciate you taking time to respond to me. It is very uplifting just to know someone knows what you are going through. Your advice is encouraging and I will definatly be checking up on it. Thank you so much. Mary
  4. 4 years ago, the dr. diagnosed me with celiac. I had lost 47 lbs, was "couch bound" from weakness from diah. Over the past 3 years, I have been diagnosed with..gastroparesis ( have been on a yogurt and ensure diet for a year and a half, because. Then diagnosed with microscopic colitis ( Dr. took biopsys during colonoscopy) It is immflamation and swelling INSIDE your colon, causing water diah. and cramping. A few months ago, after a stool sample, was diagnosed with C diff. It took 3 rounds of antibiotics to get over that. I was so weak I could not function. I got an IV, which gave mes some energy back. I am gluten free because of my diet, lactose intolerant, so I take lactaid pills. Doctors arnt listening. Do all of these things have something in common? Is there anything I can take to get my strength back up, even a little? My gastroenterologist doesnt think I have celiac, but he tested me after I had been gluten free for 2 years. I do not know what to do to get my life back. I did better, when I was eating reg food and was gluten free. Can anyone help..Mary
