  1. Modified cornstarch is NOT gluten free!
  2. Sjogren's Raynaud's Bipolar Migraines Undiagnosed Celiac

  3. I have been gluten free for about 2 months. In one more month I will be having an endoscope and a colonoscopy. I had antibody testing back in February and was told I have Sjogren's. I also suffer from Raynauds and Bipolar Disease. I have been struggling with my weight for over a year (wasting). Last winter I found a nutritionist who thought I had Candida so put me on a gluten free low sugar diet. I've also been taking probiotics ever since. After many months I felt better (not healed)and slowly started adding wheat and sugar into my diet. For the most part I stayed away from it. While doing this I would wake up with wasting away from time to time and still to this day have to eat all my meals all balanced to not lose anymore weight. I am under weight by about 10 pounds but have stabilized as long as I do not skip meals. I had company in late June and consumed small amounts of gluten some unknowingly. After a few days I woke up wasted away again and this time became very ill, all my problems were magnified and chronic again. I am convinced I am suffering from Celiac Disease and will be having these procedures done to find out what damage has been done to my GI tract. My question is........when they take the test will it show the villi still atrophied? They told me it may come out negative because I am now gluten free. I do NOT want to consume gluten and suffer the consequences just for a positive test. I know my doc will say oh no your not a Celiac cause the test was negative. If she ate gluten and had problems like we do I know that would convince her. So maybe I should just stay gluten free and see if the scopes find any other problems.
