Fatigue And Anxiety

2 posts in this topic

My daughter is 18 years old and went gluten free a year ago and does not have anymore stomach aches, and very few headaches. She was tested through Entero labs(stool sample) and found out she was gluten intolerant last year. She was feeling better but now is having fatigue and anxiety at school. She is too young to feel that she does not have energy. I think she has food sensitivities and she will find out in a few weeks, as she was blood tested (al-cat).

Anyone that was tested through al-cat and feeling better because they are not eating the foods they were sensitive to? I am very concerned that she will have many foods that she likes that will be off limits to her. It will make it challenging to prepare food that she enjoys. Any ideas?

hi porkchop, sorry, I have no answer for you, I just wanted to say that I am in a similar situation as your daughter. I looked up entero lab and the (Company Name Removed - They Spammed This Forum and are Banned) test online. they look promising. I would love to find out more and get any opinions from the more experienced here regarding tests like this. I posted a question earlier on the forum asking about advice for testing, so I will wait for any responses on that topic.

happy new year!

    • That is some odd allergy testing.  I don't get the separating the dairy?  Are you supposed to be allergic to the protein in dairy?  Then  it would be for all dairy.   like Peter said, "malt" isn't a thing to be allergic to.  Usually, foods with " malt" say  " barley malt".  Like a malted milk ball has barley malt.  But your "allergy test" should say an allergy to barley not malt.     Sorry to say, I think you wasted your money on those " tests".  
    • I definitely went for the monster roller coaster ride myself.  I ended up doing elimination diets multiple times over the years to identify problem foods beyond gluten.  And yes, you are a bright and shiny newbie at 5 months!   Usually we think of children as healing faster than adults.  After all, they do other things faster than adults too, like running into walls, and pissing off parents. Remember you are trying to heal your gut, and that means giving it an easier job than normal to reduce irritation and the work of digestion.  Stopping the immune response is important, but healing the physical damage and also restoring a healthy gut flora is important too.  It's not a simple thing and the gotchas are many.  That's why a whole foods diet with no or very few processed foods is helpful, as it eliminates many sources of gluten contamination and also carbs and sugars that feed bad bacteria in the gut.  Healing the gut allows more minerals and vitamins to be absorbed which also aids the healing process. Five months was the very beginning of my healing journey.  YMMV, but mine was more on the order of 5 to 7 years, although some of my health issues weren't (I don't think) directly related to gluten.  I would guess I am on the slow side of things recovery wise.  But it did happen, just not as fast I would of liked. https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2016/11/161107143029.htm Even after a year on a gluten-free diet, nearly 20 percent of children with celiac disease continue to have intestinal abnormalities (enteropathy) on repeat biopsies, reports a study in the Journal of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition, official journal of the European Society for Paediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition and the North American Society for Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition. The journal is published by Wolters Kluwer.  
    • "Gluten-Free" is a regulated term in Canada and the USA. It refers to wheat, rye, and barely content.  It does not specifically refer to "malt" since, while most malt is from barley, other grains can be malted without resulting in gluten content. Your allergist is wrong if he says "malt" is an issue. Wheat is gluten; yoghurt is dairy; but "malt" is not specific. You may react to certain things when malted.  But it depends on what the malt is made from. If it says "gluten-free" it does not contain wheat, barley or rye. Other top allergens are are listed in FALCPA, which came into effect in 2006.
    • I have been gluten-free per doctor recommendation for 2 years now. Since I was still having stomach problems, I went in for allergy testing. It came back as: Highly reactive: wheat, malt, yogurt Moderately reactive: barley, cows milk, mushrooms, cottage cheese, mozzarella, kelp, sesame, ginger Mildly reactive: green beans, chicken, sunflower, cheddar cheese, safflower I have never gone through official celiac testing; I simply followed the doctor's orders to rid myself of gluten and see if it helped. It helped tremendously, but I still had stomach issues, unexplained fevers, and fatigue a couple of times a month. Thus the allergy testing. My question is, is everything labeled "gluten free" also malt and barley free? Are there hidden places I should be cautious of sesame, ginger, or the other allergens? I'm willing to eliminate anything...I just want to feel better consistently. Also, I have three kids who don't currently seem to have issues. How hereditary are these problems? 
    • I compost.  I never add any bread products (even gluten-free) to my bin.  Why?  Critters.  Yep, rats, raccoons, oppossums..... You can not get glutened from it, unless you eat or swallow it.  Just wash your veggies.
