Yes, sadly some of us do get worse before we improve.  If you have not, remove dairy -- it is the most common intolerance for those with Celiac Disease.

 

Hang in there!

Hi again ,

when I couldn't get up from the sofa , I drank the broth from the chicken , please ask someone to boil up a chicken for you so you can at least drink the broth ,

also your dietician can they prescribe food drinks for you whilst you cannot eat , I had some prescribed and they did help ,

plenty of water and the chicken broth will help until your doctors find out what the problem is for you

Wow!  We have a lot in common!  I recently posted a thread similar to yours asking for help.  I'm now six months out from diagnosis and I feel worse all the time!  And, like you, I continue to lose weight.  I haven't seen any blood, and I'm not in the bathroom quite as many times as you are, but other than that we are quite similar.  It seems like every week I discover something else that I can't seem to tolerate.  I've had two endoscopes a year apart.  The first showed "slight inflammation - non specific, and I was told that I didn't have celiac.  The more recent one "moderate inflammation", and this time I was told I tested positive. I can't find a protein drink either, so the dietician told me to try pea protein powder. I haven't tried it yet.  I've been drinking MuscleEgg for awhile.  You can order it online.  It's simply pasteurized egg whites that comes frozen.  I seem to tolerate it well.  I have an appointment with a new gi in a few weeks.  I'm hoping he can help figure out if there's an additional problem.  I hope you see some improvement soon.  Keep writing!  I'm so anxious (for both of us) to hear what you find out.

My nutrient levels fell somewhat after I went gluten free.  They have since gone up again.  Keep on it you should get somewhere!

Just an update for anyone who was wondering. My colonoscopy was completely normal so I was sent for a CT Scan to rule out lymphoma. I do not have lymphoma, however, during the CT scan they found inflammation near the end of my small intestine (not anywhere outside of the small intestine though) indicating Crohn's disease and recommended a colonoscpy to confirm. My GI, however, thinks the CT scan is a false positive because my colonoscopy was negative and has prescribed hysocyamine to stop the diarrhea. I am having a second opinion given by a separate hospital that has a highly regarded celiac program since I have many symptoms of crohn's including eye issues. I also dropped below the minimum sodium levels so I was tested for addison's disease too waiting on the results. My b12 also tanked and I am dumping more than half of my shot in 3 days or less so I was moved to every two weeks again. I think we are finally getting somewhere it's just slow going...

This is old but I know when people google these or search the forums there aren't always follow ups when the problem was solved. We solved my problem, it was not crohn's or hidden gluten, I have fructose malabsorbsion as well as bit of a sorbitol intolerance. Ironically I figured it out at the gluten free expo because most of the samples were sweetend with HFCS or Fruit Juice and it left me sick as hell since I wasn't eating processed food the samples wreaked havoc on my insides even more so than day to day eating. I met with my celiac specialist GI shortly after and she confirmed it. At 4 months post diagnosis my ttg IgA went down and was a weak positive and both DGP's went back to normal/negative so I am following the gluten-free diet carefully. It is not SIBO it's just fructose malabsorbtion. So I am now Gluten free, dairy free, very low fructose/fructans, low sorbitol/polyols. Within 24 hours of going fructose and sorbitol free in addition to gluten free and dairy free I was feeling like a new person. Thank you for all of the advice here. Hopefully if anyone pulls this up with the same situation this info can help them.

    • Reality check in the past few weeks, looks like I got glutened at what should be a "safe" restaurant for gluten-free and gone right back to the beginning again recovery-wise Now too scared to eat anywhere and turning down social opportunities because of the food issues, what a miserable way to live this is.
    • Your issues is probably with the carbs then. there is a alternative. best pricing is miracle noodle. For Konjac rice substitute. Konjac flour works with some people others it does not. https://miraclenoodle.com/collections/miracle-noodle-rice-products There is a trick to cooking it but they make no carb noodles, and rice. I use the rice to make all kinds of rice like dishes like my mothers mexican fried rice etc. It does have a tad off texture and flavor but comes close. If your looking for no carb breads Julians Bakery makes some pretty decent breads but you HAVE to toast them to use them. I just found them a month ago....First time eating a bread in 2 year, and first time in as long as I can recall eating one that did not make me feel bloated and fat. No carbs, no sugars, no yeast, no dairy, no soy, and very low sodium...... Been eating french toast, vegan cheesy bread, bread with almond butter and sugar free jam I have honestly been in food heaven since I found it. BTW some celiacs can not tolerate any grains very rare but it happens.    OH and on what I have is really bad Ulcerative Colitis, so I have a bunch of other trigger foods that cause inflammation, bleeding, distention, constipation, gas, bloating etc. Carbs/sugars is a huge one for me fructose, glucose, sucrose.
    • They rotate growing rice and oats in the same crop. I unfortunately am intolerant to oats.  I have Dysbiosis according to a stool test, which is why I am quite sensitive to gluten among other foods.  May I ask what AI you have that makes you sensitive to carbs? I have been in and out of the doctor since November 2016 with chronic pain.  Trying to figure out what is going on with my gut, it's terrifying. I tried Dynasty jasmine rice from Thailand the other day which was recommended in 2009 by someone on here and a few hours later had the worst low blood sugar attack I'd ever had in my life. I am severely underweight due to the pain and I think this happened because I ate a bit too much (I LOVE rice) upon my first introduction back into my diet.  Even so I reacted just as I do when I ingest gluten (intense anxiety/hard to breathe/fast heart beat/constipation/intense pain under my ribs) So I don't think Dynasty is a safe brand, not for me at least. I only react this way to gluten. My other food sensitivities, the symptoms pop up around 24 hours later and are completely different. 
    • Thanks so much for the information. I tried Dynasty jasmine rice which was a recommendation from a sensitive individual on here. The post I believe was from 2009 so there's plenty of time for practices to have changed. I only ask this here again for updated information as I tried the Dynasty brand and got sick. I do not have Celiac disease (according to an Endoscopy) however, I have been gluten-free for 2 years and only ate a cookie or a donut maybe a few times a month for a year and a half before I was tested. I actually like going without gluten as I get less low blood sugar attacks and rarely ever get migraines. Not to mention, before I had the Endoscopy I was fasting for 2 days with no food or drink while I received other tests while I was in the hospital. I also got a colonoscopy at the same time so I had to clear my system out completely. My doctor believes I have a non-Celiac gluten sensitivity due to my symptoms after ingesting gluten. I was diagnosed with Dysbiosis so it could be my body lacks the correct bacteria to break down gluten. I have several other food intolerances including dairy and oats which many facilities process along with rice.
