We saw a new neurologist today and I am thrilled to finally find one who believes that dd's gluten intolerance is significant regarding her seizures. He may refer us to a GI doc if he feels it's important to find out if she has celiac or not. I'm worried about this since it would require that she go back on gluten but I'll worry about that later!

He's recommending that she take a gluten digestive enzyme at each meal whether she was glutened or not to help her digest any possible cc or unknown gluten.

She can't take pills yet so whatever I do I have to mix in a smoothie or something. Do you have any recommendations for products to use?

Thanks!

Why would they of told you to take her off before they did any testing is crazy then make her go back :(

No way would I go back not worth to have it just on paper if she is doing well and you already have her gluten free keep her there.

If you haven't started the pills won't do that much good due to her consuming gluten there are for like being gluten free and eating at Grandma's and maybe she has not made her kitchen completely safe but cooked gluten-free then the pills would help, but far as taking the pills and eating whatever don't mix my son tried it when they first hit the market and tried taking 2 and eating bread like the health food store told him but he was reallly sick .so not sure if it is worth the 20-30 dollars a bottle to just try to find out. It is more for being gluten-free but someone being around with gluten foods then it helps you not to get any gluten in your system.

Not sure if they would do the same effect putting them in something so ask your health food store for more info they could prolly answer the effect.

I hope this helps and good luck!

Thanks, yes, he meant for them to be for being gluten free and eating at Grandmas. I don't give her any gluten intentionally. If I ever have to put her back on, for further testing, he would not use them then. The doc that took her off had her go gluten free because he is a Dan! doctor and this is a protocol for his patients and she fit the bill and had a positive Anti-Gladian IgG test. But her new neurologist is going to be digging deeper and has a different speciality. I agree that I wish we had done more testing at the time, but I was not in touch with the right doc's. :( I can't imagine putting her back on gluten. I hope I never have to!

Good advice about asking whether putting them in something makes a difference too.

Thanks for your thoughts!

I haven't heard about any gluten digestive enzyme that actually works. They are trying to develop one, but anything that is on the market now is ineffective as far as I know, and I think I would have heard.

    • Wow everyone my memory lane stuff just keeps popping up on this forum!!!! Thanks for sharing the post op and Audrey the pic. I had what looked like this on my inner left ankle in my late 20's!  It never got diagnosed at the time. I was seeing Dr's at time early pregnancy and then missed miscarriage.  dr's I had at the time I asked didn't know what it was. Period of time I had some of the worst headaches of my life etc. I didn't know if I had been bitten by a spider (brown recluse not in my area though) , the miscarriage, or picked up something from the hospital during my follow up miscarriage stuff-stirrup /ankle. I don't have a pic of it to share. Dr's didn't know, my mom a nurse didn't know , that left my husband who is a bit more holistic based and helped me on healing it  at home. I am really shocked to see see posts and all too often say wow! That's my .... from whatever decade  I'm newly recognized/diagnosed too so this was 15 years ago! wow if any one has any active pg I wish you comfort and swift healing . Been there but didn't have the puzzle piece until you gave it to me now. so many puzzle pieces....finally .....start making an image since I joined this forum.    
    • I can guarantee you that once you get your weight back up to normal, your period will come back.  You sound really malnourished and if your weight gets too low, your periods will stop.  Don't panic.......I was down to about 92-94 pounds at diagnosis so you will be able to heal if you do the diet correctly and don't cheat. Once you start to feel better and your other problems are under control , you will find it easy to stick to the diet. Nothing beats health!  Good luck to you!
    • As the other's have stated, you most certainly can go on to have additional AI diseases whether or not you are Celiac or NCGS.  Many AI diseases can be figured out without mainstream testing, as you know from your severe symptoms of Sjogren's.  I also have Sjogren's and knew that I did without any doubt because of the severity of my symptoms.  I was later tested with a new PCP and yes, they confirmed what I already knew.  Have you had the blood work for Sjogren's?  Not that it matters because you already know. As Sjogren's really has no treatment other than treating the symptoms, having a confirmed diagnosis doesn't always matter.  Just see the doctors you need to see for the specific problems you have stemming from it and that's all you can really do.  So far, it has worked for me.
    • After doing some research, apparently there is a connection between Celiac Disease and sex drive. Here are just a couple of links I found: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PnGq_Vz6TuE   http://www.naturalnews.com/037361_sex_bread_gluten.html
