Ackkk .... you said you would be eating gluten for 6 weeks first! 

How long has been your gluten challenge? How much bread did you eat?

 

 

I did a single tTG test after a month of going back on gluten: negative.

 

Then it was 5 months of eating from 2 up to 10 slices as I got closer to the planned test date in April.

 

And I was exactly in your shoes, waiting and hoping to have a positive test result on my panel that would explain my fibromyalgia and childhood-teen heath problems.

Then I got the negative results and I was quite disappointed.

 

Monday I went and did the old style AGA blood test in case it can help detect gluten sensitivity.

 

I'm starting to accept that maybe I don't have Celiac eventhough I was better when I first went gluten free.

Another test I did in January said I was wheat intolerant.

There are several proteins in the wheat so maybe another is affecting me.

 

I don't know if I should pray for you to have Celiac.

I too wanted that diagnosis as I don't want to be taking pills for whatever I have as I believe the answer is in nutrition.

I will pray that you have the correct diagnosis to your medical issues.

What ever it is,  I think eating the right foods for you is the right way to go.

 

 

I'm seeing the gastroenterologist tomorrow morning.

I've been waiting months to see him.

I have alot of notes and questions so I hope he's the patient type.

I hope he will agree to do an endoscopy at a future time.

 

So pray for me please. Tell God the prayer is from taynichaf, and I'll tell Him it's for me so it goes to the right place.

And I'll pray for your correct diagnosis.

 

 

PS: it's better to be a hypochondriac now to find out what's wrong  then all your life wondering what is wrong.

I'm still doing the challenge! It's just, when I went to the doc she asked if I wanted to be tested now or if I wanted to wait..and I couldn't resist ha,I want to know ASAP! Ha.

Ah! I feel so bad that you've been eating gluten for so long :( I reaally hope that you can get an endoscopy to see what's going on!

I'll pray that all goes well for you! And I hope I have celiac..it sounds bad but I just want a diagnosis...

    • Here is a partial list of what I no longer suffer from as a result of not eating wheat. Some like the sleep apnea and gerd and back pain and addiction to alcohol were almost immediate. The foot pain is improved to just numbness sometimes. My long term depression went away when I added vitamin D 10,000 iu a day for a year, but the improvement started almost immediately. Muscle tone and energy improved when I added iodine. one sheet sushi seaweed a day. My Fibromyalgia is controlled with 15 mg oral Prednisone a day. I remember as a kid waking up and having to pick the dried mucuos off the roof of my mouth. That is gone and for the first time in my life I am a nose breather. Drink lots of water to help with the mucous if it is thick. Some mornings mine is like rubber cement. I need to quit smoking now.  You can improve have faith, but healing takes time. Stay the course. A Romaine lettuce salad everyday helped the gut pain. Gerd shortness of breath sleep apnea back pain snoring prostrate hypertrophy contact lens protein buildup night vision improved cataracts reduced head hair growth foot pain sleeping no more than 2 hours at a stretch slow healing no energy. Pretty much bed ridden. 
    • Celiac Disease is damage to the nooks and crannies in our intestines leading to malnutrition, vitamin deficiencies with all the various symptoms that make it so hard to diagnose. Then you add years of the antacids, antibiotics, Tylenol, opioids, alcohol, etc., each with their own particular side effects and damage. Now you've got a toxic environment that kills off the beneficial bacteria increasing malnutrition. Theoretically you can eat anything except gluten. But wheat is so ubiquitous in our diet and economy there are unlimited opportunities for cross contamination. So read the label. Use common sense. If there isn't a label it doesn't have wheat so you can eat. Big Food likes to add wheat to everything because it is addictive and helps them ensure you can't eat just one. Why on earth else would Campbells Tomato Soup have wheat listed as an ingredient? Meantime your body is in distress from malnutrition so you need to be sure to replenish D3, and Iodine for starters and treat and support any other symptoms while you heal. Good nutrition without wheat is the only way to stop progression. And just like chewing paint chips made with lead is bad, so is food with wheat.   well said, doesn't need a label.
    • We use pure cherry juice with our snow cone machine. Makes for a nice dessert after dinner.
    • Hi Kurasz, How's it going?  Any change for the amazingly better?  Or slightly better?  
      If not, hang in there, and keep praying! :)
    • Garden of Life brand Dr. Formulated Organic Fiber. It's certified gluten free. Also free of psyllium husk, dairy and soy. Also found that just simply increasing fiber intake works wonders. Perhaps try skipping a protein for at least one meal and fill up on veggies and fruits.
