I'm curious to know how long it took for you all to start noticing health improvement once you cut gluten from your diet? I won't have my endoscopy for at least a month and am considering cutting gluten for a week just to see if I notice any difference. I have constant muscle aches and have been diagnosed with benign fasiculation syndrome and have read that this could be caused by my low Vit D. As I posted earlier my blood tests came back negative so if I respond positively to cutting the gluten then I can always load up again before I schedule the endoscopy.

You might have trouble going back on gluten after being off it for even a week. Our bodies react more strongly to it when we've been away from it for a while. So yeah, you might notice a positive change in the way you feel in only a week, but I doubt it would be worth the negative change in the way you feel when you start eating it again.

Take this time to enjoy all of the gluteny things you will never be able to eat again. Even though we eat well, there are some things that can't be duplicated. Have some donuts! Have some clamcakes. If you know someone who makes homemade bread like my Mom used to do, have a whole loaf, fresh out of the oven. Put lots of butter on it while you're at it in case you develop an intolerance to dairy.

And then, once you go gluten-free, if you can, learn to cook so you can make your own substitutes instead of having to buy them all like I (the most incompetent cook in the world) do.

I'd agree it may be hard to back on again. I had a short break gluten-free and then ate it again after the lab lost my results (grr). It was much worse much more quickly when I ate gluten the second time.

Don't do it. I went off gluten for a week after my blood tests, not realizing I needed to be on it for the endoscopy. I'm much more sensitive now even after that short time. Not feeling well at all.

So don't do it. Just wait until after the endoscopsy.

I agree, I had stopped eating it for 9 days and then dr told me i had to eat it again for 6 weeks before I could have a blood test/endescopy and when I started eating it again i felt awful, especially the first few days back on it

    •  I'm a new member and totally frustrated with Dapsone which has done absolutely nothing for my autoimmune skin disease.  This is a condition where the white blood cells attack the skin, and it's been on-going for 6 years.  Only 1 in 2,000 have this rare disease so zero research has been done unfortunately.  My dermatologist put me on a stronger dose which merely worsened it.  So back to the drawing board of what to do.  Redirecting the white blood cells must be an impossible task to figure out, but in this age of technology surely some doctor, chemist, etc., could come up with a solution? I've read where many people become antibiotic resistant and this may have happened to me.  I'm sick to death of my problematic skin, and any suggestions would be helpful.    
    • Hello and welcome It's true that there's a connection between thyroid conditions and celiac.  Loose stools and other digestion issues can be symptoms of celiac and you should definitely explore this issue with your doctor. This is the full celiac panel, try and get as many of these as available to you: Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgA
      Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgG
      Anti-Endomysial (EMA) IgA
      Anti-Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG
      Total Serum IgA You must be eating some gluten each day up to the test date for an accurate response.  Here's some more info. Also check out the forum FAQ   Best of luck    
    • This is a really good serum for moms to reduce dark circles and Puffiness.My mom really liked it and she uses it everyday. I thought it might feel sticky as it dries or sinks in but it doesn’t.It minimizes the dark circles under your eyes and its results get better over time.You don't need to use a lot, a tiny amount will do. If you use too much it could feel sticky. Overall, Excellent product for sensitive skin! And its fragrance free. Very happy with dermalmd's serum and would recommend it to anyone with skin that tends to react to most other creams
    • Hello I m new at this forum. I am 24 years old. My mother and I have hypothyroidism and a day before I found out about celiac, the symptoms of celiac and hypothyroidism are almost similar and i have read that both diseases can go hand in hand. I have felt that every time when i eat macaroni and spicy rice  I have loose stool. I eat whole wheat loaf and that doesnt bother me at all. So I want to order tests for tTG IgA and immunoglobulin IgA . I m not on gluten free diet so do i need to have more gluten before tests???
