  1. Saw the doc today and he was quite good, blood tests tomorrow. He said that celiac rarely presented itself as lactose intolerance and egg intolerance before gluten intolerannce, but the tests would show more. Kinda depressed about the possibility of facing a life with no diary, no nuts, no gluten and no egg.... at least i can still have steak and chips!
  2. The other thing I should say is that my wieght has been almost the same for the past few years (Im slightly overweight).
  3. Hi, thanks for replying. Yeah, I read that continued exposured to glutent and the allergic reaction caused by it causes damange to the villi in the intestines, which disables the ability to deal with lactose. I guess Im just wondering, because Ive had lactose intolerance so long, and never (even now) had a prob with gluten... but the egg thing is making me wonder.
  4. Hi all, this is my first post and I just wanted to get some advice. Heres my story, when I was about 4 or 5 I became allergic to peanuts. So ive grown up always being concious of what I eat. Then when I was 23 I became Lactose intolerant. Now, at the age of 31 I think Ive become egg intolerant. I dont notice any problems when eating gluten or wheat, but after searching online I came across information suggesting that celiac disease can appear as lactose intolerance first., Im wondering if Ive had it all along and it caused the lactose intolerance and now the egg intolerance.... does that sound plausible? Could anyone offer any advice... Im incredibly sad about the prospect of having to avoid foods with peanuts, diary, egg and wheat for the rest of my life.
