Growing up my Dad was a competitive bodybuilder. He would go into ketosis before competitions. He knew because he used pee strips. I thought ketosis was hard on a person, as in bad for your body.
Personal update: I have been grain free for a few days now and have almost completely avoided brain fog. I still eat sweet potatoes so I am getting enough carbs and sleeping well. I weigh the same and I am happy!
Friday is my colonoscopy and endoscopy to see how I am doing now at the 1 year mark. I also have eosinaphalic esophagitis, hiatal hernia and GERD.
Been coming to this forum since my diagnosis in October of 2016. Since my diagnosis it's been an up and down fight but I have more good days then bad ones now that I've been 5 months gluten free. Had a few accidents along the way but we keep going!
Recently I noticed a black vertical line that comes from the middle of my nail shooting straight up to the top. It appears to be in the thumb nail. All my other nails on my toes and hands are clear.
I did some research on this and it says it's called a splinter hemorrhage. These can be associated with many different issues ranging from endocarditis to a trauma to malnutrition. Has anyone else experienced these?
I would attach a picture of my right thumb nail but for some reason it says the picture is to large to upload.
Universal testing should start in all schools as early as possible. I was diagnosed in 7th grade from a basic sports examination by a Dr. My Father basically turned a blind eye and said nothing wrong with my son. A basic examination by a Doctor or good Nurse can see the signs of Gluten allergies. Just need the direction to do so.
