  1. Hi Stacy, You sound a lot like me.....here are a few suggestions that were the root cause of my profound fatigue which did end up having thyroid involvement. Have your antibodies for candida checked. If you have an overgrowth of candida in the gut, the candida is capable of blocking the thyroid hormones from entering your cells. This would cause all your levels of thyroid hormones in the blood to look normal even though your body is not using them. If your candida is high, then you would have to get this under control. Another possibility is low levels of iodine. I also had this, partly due to low intake and partly due to poor absorption. So have both of these checked to see if these may be the cause. If you can find a good functional medicine doctor in your area that person could probably help you more than a traditional doctor could. Hope this helps.
  2. I also have scoliosis and kyphosis, and i remember reading on the net that celiac and scoliosis are connected. i have 2 rods and 12 screws in my back, surgery back in the 1980's. There are so many problems associated with gluten intolerance, it is highly likely that abnormal spine growth could be one of them.
  3. I have complex kypho-scoliosis and celiac. I absolutely believe that the 2 are connected, considering that gluten intolerance has such a myriad of symptoms and related disorders. I'm sure you have all seen that tooth formation can be affected by celiac, then why not bones as well?
  4. Yes, the nausea is a common symptom of mine. But it wasn't caused by gluten, candida albicans was the culprit. I had to start avoiding all sugar and starch, use a probiotic and an antifungal. You never get rid of it, just keep it in check. If you have been on any antibiotics there is a chance you may have some dybiosis in your gut. Another culprit for me was the gall bladder, had a large stone which I had removed. gall bladder problems are common in celiac disease. Hope it helps.
  5. I completely understand. I also avoid social situations, as I can only eat about 8 foods due to dysbiosis and leaky gut. I too am tired of explaining it, even to the cashier at the grocery store (wow, you eat a lot of vegetables). But you are young, and following the diet is not an option. I found out at age 47, and the damage done to my body is irreversible. I have multiple autoimmune conditions, and get so sick when I mistakenly eat something that doesn't agree with me I just don't bother to take the chance. if you aren't strict with your diet you will pay for it later in life; it's cumulative. Both my daughters have it too, we're hoping the grandbaby doesn't. Just know there are others like you, if that is any comfort.
