Thank you for all your help with this.
I was also wondering if I could ask and hope you don't mind, will they be able to tell Celiac on the camera or will it be down to the biopsies they take? My endoscopy is on the 9th, and I am worried about not having enough gluten to show.
Vegetarian here too, celiac really makes it tough as all the Quorn meat replacement products bar the odd one or two are out
Then there's all the scare sites saying only paleo type diets will repair your insides but guess what they're all heavily meat / fish based.
@Ennis_TX has some good ideas for meals
Wow guys just read all the replies Thankyou all so much!!! There are so many things you've all said that has triggered a light bulb in my little head!
The glasses may not be clean!!
I will put this to a test. One night I'll stick to bottles of cider (double checked are gluten-free)
another I'll try the Gin or William chase vodka if I can find it! And see the effects.
if I loose many days due to these not working I'll see a practitioner and see what the deal is!
Before I was diagnosed at Coeliac... I went to a herbalist who did a test and said corn is funny on my body!!! But then 18months later (when I became incontinant and lost a lot of weight) my bloods came back positive (after begging the docs and telling them it wasn't IBS)
i don't tend to snack at bars on food but I must admit I never thought it could be the way it's served!!
The humour and information has made me feel so much better
