  1. Joint Pain

    Here's my 2 cents: I was diagnosed with Celiac 2-1/2 years ago, and although the digestion was improving after going gluten-free, the muscle pain remained fierce. After researching all the possibilities, I concluded that it had to be a yeast imbalance since my intestinal tract was so trashed. I've remained on a yeast free diet and a daily regime of yeast killer pills. It has worked. My body is free of the muscle pain. My neuropathy....that's another issue! I still have nerve damage from the gluten ingestion! Carolyn
  2. I'll add my two cents worth. Calcium citrate is more absorbable than Calcium carbonate (I don't know what you've got in your Calcium supplements.) It's a pain in the butt because a human body can only absorb 500 mg at a time so I have to take it many times during the day. BUT it works for me! My blood levels are good AND I have stabilized my osteopenia. I also take about 800 IU of vitamin D with my calcium (Harvard has increased units recommended for women from 400 to 800 IU). And yes, I take magnesium as well. If your doctor does not understand vitamins (many do not take any nutritional courses in med school), then a naturopath may be helpful. Carolyn
