  1. Concern

    Thanks, but I was just at my mother's house and we had quite a chat on this subject. She tried to hammer home that I'm a hypochondriac and when I was real young she tried to tell the doctor's to test me for it and I guess the doctor's were so sure that it was just CF so they blew it off. I have a doctor's appointment next month with my CF doctor, so I'll be sure to bring this up with him. He is very cool and understanding and listens to my concerns, so I'm sure he'll give me the answers I'm seeking.
  2. That's the exact conclusion that I came to. I had my first few mercury fillings when I was around 10. I was only diagnosed with insulin-dependent diabetes around 16 or so. Of course, my CF doctors told me that diabetes was a result of the mucos in my body blocking the pancreases secretion of insulin. They even have a special term for it: CFRD. That's their protocall response. It would be shameful not to mention embarressing for them to admit that something condoned by the government is responsible for an illness.

    Wow, thanks for the reply. I don't know if I'll have to "worry" about a doctor letting them stab me in the arm to take some blood, after all I am the patient, and I have money. Money makes the world go round, and it talks. If I told the doctor that I would pay them to sing the star spangled banner, I'm more than sure they would. I can't believe you had to use a cane or walker at 21, was it because of Celiac? At times, more recently since I am older, my legs are getting harder to pick up and my blance is erratic. Geese, it sounds like there's so many restictions on what you can eat. With CF and diabetes I am already fighting to maintain/gain weight. It's like I'm going to a gunfight with a knife. I sincerely hope that they were wrong diagnosing me with CF in 1979, and it really is Celiac. Afterall, I didn't have any lung problems till I was in my late teens, and even if someone healthy is bombarded with nebs and antibiotics every day for years, they will exhibit sideeffects. Diagnosing something in 1979 is a bit like a caveman putting together an erubix cube. Thanks for the info.
  4. Well in that case I would definitly consider the amalgam removal. Remember the old saying, keep your friends close, keep your enemies closer. What you have in your mouth can be poisining you and be the catalyst for your bad health. But it's a persal desicion so you have to make the final verdict. But let me be fair here and present the negative aspects. First and foremost the dinero- I beleive it cost me around $1,300 to get them all replaced, and it's even more if you go to a holistic dentist. I went to a biological dentist to inquire on the protocall, and I found out that getting them replaced by a holistic dentist is like committing to buy a new car. But then a biological dentist will take every precaution to not expose you to that mercury gas that will increase upon removal, so again you must decide. Another negative is I personally have experienced some slight sensitivity with composite fillings- but it can be solvented by using sensitive toothpaste. Again, your call.
  5. The mercury in those fillings oozes out of them and is absorbed by your body. Human beings were not meant to have metal in their mouths. The ADA, during a congressional hearing on if amalgam fillings are 100% safe, admitted,
  6. These gas prices are maniacal. It's like a terrorist attack on our finances. There's too much demand and not enough supply. More and more need to stop driving and walk or purchase a bicycle. That's not an option for everyone, so we need to find alternative fuels. Unfortunately, these high gas prices are just an insignificant inconvenience for the wealthy, and until it negatively effects everyone, nothing will be done.
  7. Can't Fall Asleep!

    I have many problems sleeping at night. Going to sleep at night is like rolling the dice for me, I never know how it will turn out, but I have used this natural sleep aid, with some sucess rate. http://slowaging.com/sleep-aids.htm I tried over the counter medication to no avail, and tried ambien- never again. I won't go as far as to say it's dangerous, as not everyone is the same and some will suffer different side effects or none at all, but when I was on it my life was terrible, depression, suicidal thoughts, etc. I constantly felt like doing a swan dive off a real high bridge. Needless to say I flushed them all down the toilet.
  8. Concern

    O, ok, thanks. I just figured since they are organic they are ok. Man, looking at alot of my food it seems the ingredient table lists organic wheat on so many. I am already restricting my diet, this is gonna be really hard staying on a gluten-free diet. Edit: I am heavily debating that I might go to the doctor tomorrow and get tested for Celiac disease. Does anyone think it will come out positive anyway just because of my digestive issues with CF?
  9. I had 9 silver mercury fillings in my mouth and since reading about the possible health benefits of getting them removed, have done so. But I have been thinking of removing them before I read about the dangers of mercury- mostly for cosmetic reasons. I recently got them all replaced by composite-teeth lookalike fillings and besides looking like an actual human when I open my mouth now, I take 1 less injection of insulin now. I used to take 3 shots of Novolog and 1 shot of Lantus. Now I just take 3 shots of novolog!
  10. So that means that Campell's Spaghetti and Meatballs has gluten? I didn't see it on the label.
  11. Concern

    Thanks for ther replies. I will stick with the gluten-free diet for awhile to see if my symptoms get any better. I was reading the ingredients on one of my organic pop-tart packages and it listed organic wheat gluten- is that bad? I would think since its organic its ok, I don't know, you guys are the experts. Opposed to food allergies, I had these digestive problems long before I contracted diabetes, and the doctors surgically removed some of my colon so I constantly have a bile overgrowth, so that means I have gas constantly.
  12. Concern

    Hello everyone. My main concern is I have an inkling I have been misdiagnosed. I was reading a site on the symptoms of Celiac Disease, and I have many of them. But I am 28 years old, and was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis in 1979. About 10 or so years ago I aquired type 1 diabetes as well. But for the weird part, as you may know Cf mostly effects the lungs. I have had much luck in the breathing department, but I have terrible digestive problems. In the 3 months when I was born, I had 3 surgeries alone, and over the years more surgeries for bowl obstruction. I must take digestive enzymes to properly digest food. Over the past week or so, I have been eating mostly organic and a few gluten-free foods, and feeling better. I don't know if this is a coincidence or what?
