A year or two ago you recommended the Rainbow Lite Calcium pills, and I just wanted to let you know the calcium and vitamin D are working, I scored better on my bone density test this year, I am still in the range of osteopenia, but it is getting better! I also bought a tread mill and I usually walk a mile every day now, so that helps too!

Thanks again

yay! :) I'm glad to hear your scores are up! keep up with that walking, and someday, you'll find all your friends - of your age - wonder how you can be so young. :)

that reminds me that my chiropractor mentioned an article to me recently about a couple of doctors suggesting much larger supplementation of vit D - on the 2000 to 4000 IU/day range. :o don't know that it'd help specifically with osteopenia, but wow!

If you want vitamin D, get out in the sunlight (without sunblock, but not between 11 am and 2 pm if you live in a warm climate)!!!!

and that doesn't work in a non-trivial portion of the US in the months of (approximately) october through march. :( (there's not enough UV, even on a sunny day, for the body to produce vitD at high latitudes because of the tilt of the earth and the amount of atmosphere the sun's going through at that point.)

the comparison to the sun is one of the reasons the researchers are recommending that dosage, however, noting that summer sun exposure of 10 minutes gives about 10,000-30,000 IU (iirc).

    • Sorry you're feeling poorly Have you seen this page: https://www.peoplespharmacy.com/2015/07/27/getting-off-ppis-can-be-a-challenge/ I think you can get gluten free DGL, maybe worth a try?
    • I could be wrong but Methotrexate is an immune suppressant so it may affect Celiac testing. I have seen this mistake made with other people with RA. It may be that the only way you will know if it will help is to continue eating gluten free for awhile and see how well it does with the pain levels you have.  Or...have the biopsy.  But, again, will the medication affect that also?
    • Welcome! YES! Some of us who have problems with gluten do not test positive to celiac tests. There is a term for this, non celiac gluten sensitive NCGS and this could explain your symptoms. Having said that, it would be a good idea if you hunted down the actual results of your celiac tests and posted them here. It's possible that your doctors didn't perform the full range of tests and some celiacs only test positive to one of these.  I would first double check on the tests, but once that's resolved you could keep a food diary, a very simple not of what you eat, when you eat it and how you feel. You then introduce a new food perhaps one week at a time and monitor the results. I would start with dairy but I don't know that there's a right or wrong answer. Best of luck. I think regardless of testing you've probably found an answer and that you will probably want to stay gluten free.  Either way you've found a good site and you will have lots of support if you need it Good luck.

    • I am not sure that the thought that your antibodies go down because there is nothing left to attack is true.  If you reach that point, then you should continually have to increase your dosage of thyroid hormone.  You would need full replacement dose that is given to those whose thyroid's have been removed.  I am no doctor so I could be totally wrong. My thyroid antibody number went to 1200 before my diagnosis of Celiac.  I kept my TSH almost suppressed and went by T3 and T4 numbers only.  After about 8 years gluten free, my antibodies went into the normal range.  I figured it was because my inflammation levels went way down after removing the cause of it.....gluten. I now take a smaller dose of thyroid hormone as my regular dose than before I was diagnosed with Celiac.
