  1. Yes, I am gluten free now...I sure wish I had known! How did your recovery go?
  2. Well I had a follow up appointment and I told him I had felt better on the antibiotic. I'll give it a day or two and then contact him again I guess. Thanks for your help!
  3. Rifaxim for 10 days. I have thought about asking him to treat it again, although he has never done the breath test for it. Diagnosed based on symptoms.
  4. I guess? I had a colonoscopy in addition to the upper endoscopy. Had a ct scan...normal. Have been treated for small intestine bacterial overgrowth. He's calling it ibs but idk.
  5. He did say I could just stop it...I don't know if it was because I was on a low dose? 25 mg. Thanks for chatting w me about this. :-)
  6. I'm afraid all the time that the docs have mised somehing. I am two and a half mos. gluten free and not sure how much I have improved. I feel like the docs just assume that I am or will improve...same for others around me. This thing is a real beast...
  7. The brand you mentioned - digest gold. I just ate a plain chicken breast, peas, and homemade gluten free brownies. I had been taking pamelor but stopped because I was getting dry mouth. I don't know if withdrawal from that can cause D. I am also on my period (sorry if this is tmi) which usually upsets my stomach, but today has been pretty excessive. Feeling pretty blue. I am really not sure I am getting better at all. :-(
  8. I tried the digestive enzymes last night for the first time with dinner...had terrible diarrhea this morning. Is that normal when starting on them?
  9. Is anyone else dq2 homozygous? I am and am a bit skittish because I guess it means the disease can be more difficult to manage?
  10. I'm so very sorry! I was diagnosed two months ago, right after the death of a family member, and it is a lot to go through all at once. I don't know that I have any good advice, as I am still trying to figure all this stuff out too, but I do hope things settle down for you.
  11. I had held off on getting the enzymes b/c I was waiting the results of a fecal fat test...I figured he may write a prescription anyhow. The results still aren't in, so I guess I will go ahead and get them since the lab results are taking forever!
  12. Is there somewhere that shows that cooking pasta releases gluten molecules? Just for my own information/sanity? My husband does not cook gluten free and I am stressing about this possibility. Thanks!
  13. Yes, I have been doing a lot of rice. I took the suggestion about eliminating something, and I eliminated corn. It seemed to help for a few days, but now the pain is back. This is going to make me totally batty!!!
  14. I meant double DQ2! DQ2 homozygous
