  1. Happy brithday! Hope you had a good one!

  2. That is what I was was looking for is some way to test them. Without knowing for sure I dont Feel comfortable bringing it up in family counseling. Thanks for your reply KGJ
  3. Can anyone tell me where and what the cost might be to have Tapioca flour, Corn Starch, Potato Flour and other gluten-free mixes tested for Gluten. My stepson has behavioral issues (to say the least) and I am pretty sure he has contaminated my food sources. He resents his mother having to cook gluten-free for me although he doesn
  4. Chronic Prostatitis

    Dear Wendy, am a 52 year old male, one year post celiac dx. 2 years post colectomy. For the prior few years I would get low grade fever, lymphocytes and blood in urine, slightly elevated wbc. Regular doc assumed prostatitis, I was male and had lower quadrant and thigh pain. I would take cipro for a while and be ok. I Then ended up in hospital very ill. Gastro dx diverticulitis hospitalized 6 days, IV antibiotics and scheduled for colectomy in 1 month. Made it three weeks and was back in the hospital. I was given IV antibiotics for 5 days then surgery. I was going to be a new man. I never got completely healthy. I believe that I had both the prostatitis and diverticulitis because of the closeness of my bowel issue to my prostate. I defiantly displayed the symptoms of both issues. My wife is a Family Dr. and suggested that we run a celiac panel on a hunch. All came back positive. Gastro did an endoscopy and my biopsy showed flattening and destruction of the villa of the small intestine, barrettes (having a Laparoscopic Nissen in Dec), and pre cancers cells in stomach. He theorized that undigested food flowing to the large intestine contributed to the diverticulitis. Typical finding for someone of my age with long term celiac undiagnosed. This summer I had a serious case of Prostatitis. Received Outpatient IVs and am now on 90 days leviquin. (Good reason to marry a Doctor) Because of the celiac I have Malabsorption syndrome. Urologist ran test for zinc, b-12, vita D, folic acid ect... I was low on all the aforementioned even though I am taking b-12 shots and supplements. I asked him if there was a connection between Celiac and prostatitis. His answer was not that I am aware. He did state there is a connection between low zinc, magnesium and other vitamins along with the ph factor in urinary tract. Uro has me take a vitamin C 1000 and a cranberry tablet night and morning, along with zinc at lunch time. Seeing how a lot of celiacs have Malabsorption issues I would conclude that there is a connection whether directly or indirectly. Strictly Anecdotally, Kyle Johnson
  5. I have had the same experience as DreamWalker with my adderall for ADD. Had to switch back to the immediate release form and take dose three times a day to get any effect. I am hoping this changes as my insides heal. This seems to be the case with my synthroid. I had been at 200mcg a day, after going gluten free I have had dropped down to 125mcg per day. I don
