  1. I was just diagnosed about three weeks ago. The allergist took me off diary and eggs as well as gluten. I am taking krill oil tabs, vit. D and a heafty multiple vitamin, and daily probiotics. She also told me to take an OTC anti-inflamatory BCM-95. My first week after diagnosis was terrible, even though the diarrhea stopped the gut (bloating, nausea, headache and rumbling) continued. Now, 3 weeks into healing ... it's better and I can tell I'm on my way to recovering. I have been really sick for about 3 years, but thought it was caused from my well water. I started getting water delivered, but my stomach problems & diarrhea got progressively worse. My 38 yo. daughter called several months ago and told me she has celiac disease and I should get checked out. I finally went to an allergist and she told me after hearing my history that I had celiac disease. I also have another autoimmune problem ... hashamoto's disease, which caused severe fatigue. But thank God, I didn't have silent celiac otherwise I would not have sought a cause for my abdominal problems. I still have nausea and minor rumbling ... but nothing like I did have. I am resolved that the healing is happening, it will just take time. I never want to go through what I have experienced the past three years and I am learning everything I can. I think going to an allergist is a good idea ... to find out what else may be causing you trouble. There is a family history of dairy sensitivity and boy do I love milk ... but it doesn't love me. I may be able to have eggs and/or dairy in the future, but for now ... my gut needs to take it easy so healing can happen. I am ordering the BCM-95 from Amazon next week. From what I have read ... inflammation plays a large role with celiac disease. I plan to order Super Bio-Curcumin (400mg) by Life Extension which costs $2163 and if you have Prime you will get free shipping. I wish you the best and hope this will help.
  2. I noticed your TSH is 3.1 and on the rise. Do you have any Hashimoto's in your family history. Several years ago, my lab tests showed a 3.9 on the TSH. I went to an endocrinologist who did a thyroidgobulin and a peroxide antibody tests and my range on the thyroidgobulin was 14 (normal is <2). I was put on synthroid 50mg. and almost immediately started improving. My endocrinologist said a healthy thyroid should be about 1 on the TSH test. I hope this helps.
