Sooo, A Month On Gluten And This Is What The Specialist Said

He asked me about symptoms. Thanks to brain fog I'd written them all down. He looked at the skin problems, looked over the list, looked at my stomach and asked my why oh why was I still eating gluten. I told him my gp told me to so I could be tested and his answer was to stop eating it immediately. He talked about cross contamination, it being hidden in certain foods that you wouldn't expect and to eat whole foods - no processed gluten free crap.

He said the blood tests the doctor did a couple of months back were negative but he didn't want me to continue eating gluten to go for endoscopy. Just quit eating it, right now, today. I was gluten-free for a year (excluding CC and the odd 'I don't care and I'm eating that spring roll' moment, and back on the gluten for just two weeks prior to blood test.

Formally diagnosed as non Coeliacs gluten intolerance - treatment is the same either way. And that was that.

I *really* could have kissed this guy. I went there expecting to be told that I must continue with the gluten for a few more weeks, go for endoscopy and I cannot tell you how rough I feel after a month eating it already.

He obviously decided enough was enough and thank god for that :D

I love reading stories like this!!!! We're still in the dark ages with this, but maybe we can see sparks of light at the end of the tunnel.
