Digestaqure Question

Hi everyone,

I have been following this forum for over a year now and have finally decided to register. Your post have really helped me this last year. I was diagnosed in February of 2009 at the age of 48 after having spent 7 days in the hospital. My GP thought it was IBS so she sent me to a GI who said he wanted to do an endoscopy, he took several biospy and then was happy with the results he received at our local labs so he sent them on to the UCSF and they said most defintely celiac. When I went for my results I had never even heard of celiac, he handed me a paper that kind of explained it and said to not eat anything with gluten and that was it, so I did my own research and with the help of my wonderful husband and youngest daughter I have been gluten free since, however a year later I am still having problems, so my GP sent me to new GI who had just moved into our city and he decided to do another endo and my first colonoscopy and he discovered I have a very twisted colon and my small intestine has not healed, so he told me to do more research. That is why I decided to register and ask a question. A good friend of mine discovered this website about digestaqure and it says it has this pill you take that can heal your villi. So has anyone heard of this or tried it. Your advice would be greatly appreciated.

Once again all of your post have really helped me through this last year and when other family memebers don't understand what your going through, I have always come to this forum and you all understand.

Thank you for listen,

Pam

I pulled up the DigestaQure website and came away feeling that if sounds too good to be true, it probably is. And I couldn't find anything about it on this forum. If it was that good, I think someone here would be shouting it from the rooftops.

ETA: Corrected spelling

I googled it on the web. Looks like lots of complaints.

I don't know why the GI just said your colon is a twisted mess. See what you can find out yourself? You haven't healed your small intestine? He won't help you any further? A "miracle cure" pill isn't what you need. You need a new GI who knows what Celiac is.

okay....Let me get this straight...your GI doctor told YOU to do more research?? :blink: about what??

(ARRGH...for pete's sake!! )

You need a new doctor.

There is no magic bullet, I am afraid.

The only "cure" is a gluten-free diet and healing time. (And a doctor who knows what the hell he/she is talking about.)

Tell your GP this "doctor" is not knowledgeable about celiac and you need someone else right now to look at your endoscopy/colonoscopy test results and treat you properly.

DigestaCure looks like a gell cap of aloe and prebiotics (things the good gut bacteria need.) Shouldn't hurt and might help. Depends how much they charge for it.

If you've been ill for a while and your intestinal villi haven't recovered, you'll probably be having difficulty absorbing the nutrients you would need to heal. Are you taking any supplements?

Oh! I meant to say Hi! and, I'm new here too, but I went straight to look up DigestaCure. This is a great site, isn't it? I just found it, and while I wouldn't wish these problems on anyone, I'm still glad I'm not alone with all of this.

    • Hello I was diagnosed Dec 15 of last year and went totally gluten-free the next day. I actually got worse before I got better - it's a steep learning curve - but now, 4 1/2 months later I'm finally seeing improvement.  Hang in there. 
    • Called my GI doctor today to make sure he is going to look at my small intestine and do biopsy for Celiac for my EGD and he is. Thanks for the tip everyone about have to start eating gluten again. The office told me to break my gluten free diet and start eating gluten everyday until my EGD. Here's to being miserable again for a few weeks 🍻🍞😩
    • I can completely relate! The horrible mental effects that I have been living with for years is the absolute worst side effect of eating gluten, HANDS DOWN. Worse than the endless tummy aches, worse than the constant diarrhea, worse than the week long migraines, worse than the daily fatigue and body pain.... I honestly though there was something seriously wrong with me and hated my life because of how I felt mentally. I always felt like I was drowning, not in control of my thoughts, trapped in some unexplained misery. My head was always so cloudy, and I was mad because I always felt so slow and stupid. I would feel so lethargic and sad and empty while at the same time be raging inside, wanting to rip out of my own skin. I was mean, terrible, would snap at the people closest to me for no good reason and just felt like I hated everyone and everything. Think of how crappy you feel when you have a terrible cold and flu - I felt that crappy, but mentally. Some days were really bad, some were mild. I always thought it was because I was getting a migraine, or because I had a migraine, or because I had just overcome a migraine, because I didn't sleep well, because....always a random reason to justify why we have all these weird unrelated symptoms before we get diagnosed. I'm happy to say that I have been gluten-free for about 2 months now and though I am not symptom free, the first thing that improved was my mood. I no longer feel foggy and miserable. For the first time in years, my head is clear, I can actually think, and I feel positive and like I am in control of what's going on in my head. I don't hate the world. I don't spend every day bawled up on the corner of the couch depressed and angry. The release of these horrible symptoms is enough to never make me want to cheat, no matter what I have to miss out on. So insane how a little minuscule amount of a stupid protein can wreck such havoc. 
    • I wanted to collect some of the info on NCGI in one place so that visitors who test negative but may still have an issue with gluten can be directed there.

    • I was just diagnosed in March and I totally feel you. I'm having a hard enough time with determining which lip glosses are safe, let alone all my face products etc. I feel like this 'grey area' is the biggest annoyance with Celiac. So many foods/cosmetics I thought were safe after reading the ingredient list are actually not safe at all! One website says it's safe, one says its not. All these unfamiliar ingredients and even after googling term after term still so many grey areas!! I'm sure in time it gets easier and second nature and you learn by trial and error but holy this constant uncertainty is super annoying haha.
