  1. New. Ow To Gain Weight?

    Hello, I am newly diagnosed several days ago. I am generally slightly underweight and during the month before I was diagnosed I lost an additional 15 lbs (not purposfully). I am trying to not overwhelm myself with too much information or diet changes and am generally eating fruits, veggies, and plain proteins, all made at home so far. I am concerned about the cc issue. I am eliminating nuts and dairy and soy for a month also, and then will reintroduce them and see how I do. My concern is that I'm not getting enough calories and I will continue to lose weight. I am trying to eat something with fat at each meal as best as I can (avocado, egg, some red meat), but I am finding myself much less hungry than I was pre-diagnosis. I don't want to lose any additional weight. Any advice?
  2. Thank you for your response and terminology advice SGOT: 51 SGPT: 28 I'm generally slightly underweight for my height, and I've lost 12 lbs over the past 4-6 weeks (not purposefully). I'm not a diabetic, and I just had an upper and lower GI exam with only showed GERD. I also have elevated MCV: 106.7 Up until about 3 months ago I felt completely healthy, but since then I've had constipation, diarrhea, brain fog, irritability, stomach pain, and the weigh loss. Also I'm premenopausal and was diagnosed with osteoporosis several years ago.
  3. My doctor seems to think that the only answer is alcohol abuse, which I assured her is not happening, but I'm not sure she believed me.
  4. Whoops - I meant elevated SGOT and normal SGPT.
  5. I have been having various symptoms that seem consistent w/ Celiac. I am waiting for my Celiac test to come back, but in the meantime I was told that my SGPT was elevated while my SGOT was normal. My doctor said that those results point to alcohol abuse, but I only drink in moderation (rarely more than 1 glass). Could these values point to Celiac?
