  1. Hey guys, I've been biopsied for celiac disease and also had blood tests, getting my results on Thursday. Meanwhile, I've been trying the gluten free diet and I feel absolutely wonderful!!!! Can't even explain, hardly a tummy ache. However, last night I felt terrible, sick + bloated etc and I raided the bin for the labels of what I had eaten. I identified some ingredients I wasn't sure about. Mustard powder Dijon mustard White wine White pepper Could anyone tell me if these could have caused a reaction? Thankyou!! Lesley x
  2. Thanks guys! Could just have made a really big mistake by reducing gluten
  3. Hi there! For the past ten years (I'm 21) I've been suffering with extreme stomach pain, nausea, swelling, and abdominal cramping. I've also been very lethargic and eventually suffered secondary depression. I think it's a miracle I manage to get to university! Doctors haven't taken me seriously at all, it's the usual story - IBS, IBS, IBS! Recently I attended a gastroenterologist who did some tests with the following results... Blood rests - raised ESR, antibodies, (inflammation) eosinophil (associated with allergies) Faecal test - raised inflammation Both of these tests could have been a lot higher but were still outside normal range. Ultrasound was normal. I'm due to attend for an endoscopy and a colonoscopy next week (scared!!) and my aunt also has Celiacs disease. I am going for testing so I will be getting a professional opinion, however, I'm pretty convinced I have Celiac and just wondered what you guys thought and if it was worth reducing gluten as my diet is pretty high in it at the moment. Some of your experiences would be awesome too! Thankyou for listening to this ramble! Lesley x
