Back On Regluar Diet..

4 posts in this topic

Well a couple of weeks ago my sons GI doc told us to put him back on the regular diet after his endoscopy.. (which was negative) we have not had blood work done on him yet and I am trying to get a stool sample in for testing..

anyway.. I also went back on the regular diet.. and hey.. even though I am eating all kinds of stuff like candy and ice cream and all.. I have lost 6 pounds. Now fitting into my old jeans is cool and all.. but every day it seems I get on the scale and am a pound lighter.. I have also had bloating and gas and all.. I have fallen three times.. ( am normally klutsy but not this bad..) and have been feeling spacey..more than usual..

makes you think...

Has this wieght loss been related to diet? my son did not lose any weight.. didn't gain either.. his bms have been about the same..but he is avoiding most gluten containing items.. you would think if I am on a HIGH carb diet... eating lots of ice cream etc.. (i've been bad) that I would not be losing wieght.

I just wish I could mainly get some answers about my son.. and mabye after another two weeks of this if I am still losing Mom will have to go to the doc.. that'll give me four weeks on the regular diet.. good for testing..

Ugh UGh and triple UGH

D,

Are going to the washroom like crazy?? That could cause the weight loss. I used to be under 100lbs before diagnosis, but that's because every time I ate I could keep anything in my body!! I'd rather gain more weight and be healthy than underweight and malnurished.

Somewhat..I would have to say yes more than before.. whats worse is being an adult and having accidents.. :angry: I started having trouble when I had the last baby Mr 11 pound boy.. I chalked it up to that.. didn't accociate it with my other son's problems till now that I am having this trouble again..

I weighed 90 pounds till 7 years ago when my first son was born.. now I am getting progressively lighter..about 2 pounds a week.. and I am eating high carb high fat ice cream cookies etc etc.. all the bad stuff..

so it's not like I am trying to lose weight

Hi D. It sounds like your body may not be absorbing nutrients (and calories). Doesn't sound healthy to me. I'm not a doctor, but I'd sure go see one.

Good luck.

Kim.

    • Gertrude.....just a few comments after reading your posts..........no other disease but Celiac disease will cause a positive on the EMA test.  I have never heard of a false positive on that either.  It is a test that is done by hand and not by a machine because of the way it has to be done, so having a false positive is almost impossible.  Your doctor should have known that.  Many people trip just 1 or 2 tests on the panel and they have Celiac Disease.  With autoimmune testing, you can test 2 different people with Celiac Disease and they can have wildly different test results.  Couple those with a positive gene test and the likelihood of it being Celiac is almost 100%.  The fact that the doc didn't find villus atrophy just means the damage is not extensive enough for them to find.......yet.  I am sure they would prefer you to keep eating gluten until that happens but you do not want to do that.  So.........after you have been gluten-free for awhile, have them run the Celiac panel again to see if your EMA goes to normal, which it should if you eat very gluten free. With positive gene results, positives on your Celiac antibody testing, and positive dietary response, that is a diagnosis!
    • That's great, Gertrude! I'm glad your doctors sound more competent than mine. And that you're starting to feel better.  I haven't had any abdominal or joint pain in the last few days, and I feel like I have more energy for sure. I've been feeling a little off/dizzy but that might be from gluten withdrawal.  Good luck with everything! 
    • By the way, I got my biopsy pathology report and the doctor took 2 biopsies, not the recommended 4-6. It says no "significant villous blunting not seen." I don't know if I should laugh or cry---so frustrating.   
    •   Thank you, this does feel helpful and reassuring. Did you end up getting blood tests again after going gluten-free? Do you have to worry about cross contamination as much as with a celiac diagnosis?  How do you explain it to friends and family? Non-Celiac gluten sensitivity sounds so vague and I know it's dumb, but I worry about people not taking me seriously.        
    • Helen, a woman with severe lifelong eczema/dermatitis, wrote to me a few weeks ago, saying "I have taken your advice and been strictly gluten free for five months now. The eczema inflammation is 99% gone and my skin quality has significantly improved. I do still get a bit itchy around my neck area and elbow creases, more so at night when it is warm. I have noticed a significant improvement in my asthma also. I still use antihistamines perhaps once or twice a week for runny nose. Does this mean I will need to be gluten free for life? Which of your books would you say would be the most relevant for someone in my position? Thank you for your assistance, regards, Helen. View the full article
