  1. I'm interested! Eastern standard time here. New to celiacs after birth of my daughter.
  2. Thank you for the update! I'm getting an upper and lower scope done at the end of the month, I've suspected a gluten intolerance or celiacs for about a year and a half and have been on a gluten free diet since then. I also eliminated dairy because it's not uncommon to develop lactose intolerance when you're celiac. And I felt a great deal better for a long time and then a few months ago I started to get gastroparesis and I suspected it was because I started adding dairy back into my diet and I just can't tolerate it. Recently, I had my DNA. Tested to see if I carry celiac genes and I do. When I was admitted into the hospital for gastroparesis like symptoms after two weeks, I lost 10 pounds and I'm already stick thin. I can't afford to lose the weight. They gave me morphine and sent me home with reglan after I told them I believed it was due to eating too much dairy and I suspect a lactose intolerance. I came to find out the reglan contains lactose and it just made me feel so tired, unmotivated and depressed, so I only took it sparingly to help with my nausea and digestive upset but I took it with a lactaid since I know I can't digest the lactose. I've been having D and C since November due to gastroparesis, mostly D. Here soon I'll get my upper and lower scopes done to see what's going on in there.... I haven't had gluten for over a year so I don't know if they will find villi damage, and there's no way I will eat 5 pieces of bread daily or dairy for two weeks before the test because I'm afraid of what will happen. Also I've found that raw vegetables irritate my gastroparesis and I try not to eat past 6pm. I plan on starting to take florajen and digest gold to help digest my food, in hopes that it helps because it seems like my digestive system just can't do it anymore. I'm 27, starting having celiac symptoms two months after my daughter was born... Use to have hyperthyroid issues until I quit the gluten, now they are normal thyroid levels. But I've had a few other big things wrong with my health in the past!! Trying not to let them get me down and trying to understand that people don't stay healthy forever and that this is a part of life with a positive attitude!! I hope you all get the answers you are looking for, take care and have a great start to your 2014 )))
