rwb9wg replied to rwb9wg's topic in Celiac Disease - Post Diagnosis, Recovery/Treatment(s)Hey there, Thanks for your response! Well, I've been as good as I can and as the situation allows- I'm not on a meal plan and do all my own cooking, I have bought my own pot, pans, and cutting board (not wooden) that only I use hear at school and keep in my room so no one else does. And I don't use a toaster ever. I know that cross contamination is a big issue, but I have been super careful and it's honestly easier to do so here than at home where my family all continues to eat gluten but is more careful when I'm at home.
rwb9wg posted a topic in Celiac Disease - Post Diagnosis, Recovery/Treatment(s)Hi there, I am a 20 year old student at UVA and was diagnosed with Celiac's in September, possibly due to mono which could have affected by immune system and turned on the gene for it (since I had absolutely no issues with it for the first two decades of my life). Since then, I have stopped having gluten, I am sure at first I got it in some ways, but for the past few months I have been extremely careful. However, I am still having a lot of symptoms and I just don't know what to do, my GI says it could be just that it's taking the intestine a long time to heal, but I don't know if anyone else feels like this quite constantly: -abdomen/flank/back pain especially on the left side (pretty constant pain) -VERY cloudy head, hard to think -extreme fatigue/body ache/hard to move around properly (even after lots of sleep) -seems like my abdomen/flank has narrowed on both sides (outer skin) I just had a colonoscopy and ultrasound this past weekend which showed everything was normal, although maybe some liquid in my right lung? If anyone has any ideas of related conditions or anything really, it would be much appreciated! It's hard to go on like this every day which class, especially when I'm trying so hard with the diet! Thanks a bunch
