  1. Not Absorbing After Year And A Half

    Andy, Just GREAT info!!! Iam so thankful for people like you that help those of us that need such information. I don't know a single person with celiac disease in my area so most of the time I only know what I read. Even the doctors dont seem to know much. I live in Indiana. I will continue to read these boards and whatever else I can find to get the answers. Thank you so very much as well as all the others that responded to this.

    Hi Gillian, I don't know that for sure because I was only told that by the woman that gave me my dexa scan. If it has helped your mom that is great! I still am reading about different possibilities.

    To All, Thanks but now am really confused!! Never heard of lysine and the person that did the scan said that evista is never recomended anymore!?!?! She said that I should take Fosmax. Andy, why would that add to malabsorption problem?? How does one know if they have malabsorption?? Like I said in above link my boold test for calcium and vit D and vit B came back normal. But then this dexa scan was bad. I so wish I had a doctor that delt with the problems of celiac. The closest one is 3 hours from here.

    Yes, thanks Tiffany Iam doing strength training usually 4 times a week. I have been on that program for around 4 years. I probably should add walking to that. I have a stand on my feet job but don't move that much. Let me know if anyone has the same problem or any suggestions.

    Thanks so much to all for your input. I have been taking a liquid calcium and magnesium called Eniva. When I told this to the doctor he said that there was no proof that magnesium helped. I tell you what everyone that a person talks to tells youa different story. Health store people and chiropractor don't want you to take Fosamax. It really leaves one wondering what is the best thing to do. I have to find someone to put my trust in besides the good Lord. I just wish there was a doctor in our area for Celiac. I had it with out knowing what it was for over 30 years..............does that tell you anything. Thanks again.
  6. Hello, I just had a dexa scan the second in 14 months. I went from having a trace of osteopenia in 8/02 to osteoporsis now. I have been gluten-free the whole time and taking calcium. I also have bood tests for calcium levels which came back very good. I just don't know what to think much less what to do about it. If Iam not absorbing the calcium yet it shows up in my blood then where is it going?? If anyone can help please do. Thanks
