hi there

well i eventually got my results -six biopsies taken.no significant inflammation. mucosa with villi of normal size and architecture. no granulomata,no giadia. no evidence of celiac or malignancy. duodenal biopsy; within normal limits.

so ive not got celiac but i have got gastro-oesophageal reflux disease - not sure how i feel really. i was hoping for some answers!. anyway i did remember to ask for copy of results. mentioned abt my palm rash getting worse since reintroducing dairy and if the rash on my face could be caused by my vitamin e face cream( possibly wheat based) and reminded her of the food intolerance,s( that originally brought me to the docs in the first place) to my complete and utter shock she said she would refer me for allergy testing!!!! this put me off my stride and i completely forgot to ask for blood test results and for new tests to be done.although i expect they will be done when i have the allergy tests.

i also asked for the notes from the hospital when i was told i had scleritis- i wasnt told what it was so i never went back. just to check if it was a definite diagnosis or the doc was just surmising it could be that.

so got some meds for the reflux, but i dont really want to go an get them- id rather try to modify my diet - any suggestions anyone?? ta!

also been having probs with my teeth and now i think ive got yet another abcess, so another trip to dentist!!!

the other thing is - if my bloating is not celiac- its prob dairy .so now im faced with eatin it till i get my allergy testing done even though its gonna make my rashes worse. soz if it sounds like im moaning abt not havin celiac - just a bit miffed thats all. any imput welcome thanks...

My basic guidelines for GERD is as followed: no greasy, no rich, and no spicy. Sodas can be done depending on how tolerent you are.

Endoscopys are falling out as the gold standard. Try the gluten free diet and see if it makes this all go away.

hi there, thanks for your reply

iv,d been reading some of your posts coz id noticed you mentioned gerd in a few. odd thing is ,reflux wasnt one of the symptoms i complained abt to my doc as its one of the newest symptoms and id put it down to my age lol. as for sodas- im fine with diet coke , but anything else especially lemonade sets me off. ive noticed in mornin i get it abt an hour after breakfast and thats toast, sunflower margarine(dairy free) and coffee. so im guessing the coffee may have to go... oh yeah and chocolate- thats bad!!!! ( not for breakfast lol- just generally) ha!

I used to have stomache aches in the morning after my breakfast; I thought it was the coffee or sugary syrup on my waffles... turns out it was the waffles. I would stop with toast for breakfast if I was you. It could be non-celiac gluten intolerance (NCGI) or they missed the damaged parts in the biopsy.

Like shadowicewolf sugested, I would try the gluten-free diet for at least 3 months before you rule out gluten as a cause.

... My boys tested negative for celiac but 2/3 has seen their health improve after going gluten-free. Don't rule it out yet.

I really want to say, lol just to keep from crying. Celiac was ruled out for me also, stayed gluten free anyway because I felt better. Accidentally had some and ended up in ER from anaphylactic shock. So I headed the allergy direction to. On a positive note, you can avoid the the things that bother you and still have accurate skin allergy tests (it's really not as bad you will think). Now I'm at testing for a mast cell disorder (it's means you have allergic reaction to triggers, but are not allergic in the sense that allergy shots help) and have been placed on Zantac 300mg and Allegra 360mg a day. Hang in there, the answer is out there.

hi

i,d actually be glad to give up the toast- im absolutely fed up of it. i only started to eat it coz i was trying to up the wheat for the tests and id given up dairy (kinda) for a while, so that meant no cereal - although i cant think of a wheat free cereal. im a bit flummoxed as what to eat for breakfast as im veggie and not a big lover of eggs or fruit. a major overhaul of my diet is needed i think.!!!! its nice to hear your boys are feelin better on a gluten free diet - good luck. oh organic cornflakes should be ok - i,ll try them..

Every few days we make gluten-free pancakes. I'm lazy so I start with a mix but change it from there. For instance, the recipe calls for 1/4 oil, 1.5cups mix, 1cup milk. I use 1c mix, 1/2 to 1 cup of golden flax, 1/4 coconut oil, about 1.5 c coconut milk, 1/4 protein powder, bee pollen and cinnamon to taste (sometimes add cocoa). I try to "healthy it up" a bit. This would make left overs so we have frozen pancakes to toast or nuke the next day.

There are a few gluten-free cereals. Chex is a good one. There are other rice or hemp cereals that are in health food stores. Be careful with organic since that doesn't mean gluten-free. Evenstuff like Rice Krispies has wheat as a general rule.

If you like toast, Udi's is our favourite store bought bread; it's good as toast...not so good plain but the bagels are good untoasted.

Good luck to you! :)

I do gluten free bisquick for pancakes. I normally eat chex though.

Be careful with corn flakes, sometimes depending on the brand, they can use a barley sweetener I believe.

My celiac test was also negative. I did have allergy testing done, because I was already allergic to peanuts. I am allergic to wheat on the blood test and skin test. They did do Igg testing on me and I was allergic to alot of things, but the biggest were gliadin, gluten and wheat. I decided to go gluten free completely, it's been two years now and if I am glutened I can tell the next day (strangely it doesn't hit me right away) I was also diagnosed with gerd and IBS about 9 years ago. My heartburn only bothers me if I have bad seasonal allergies now.

I love chex and vans gluten free cereal. Sometimes I have a hershey bar with my cup of coffee in the morning and it is wonderful!!!

Good Luck

Sarah

thanks for all your replys

ive been food shopping today and decided im going to buy a few things each week until ive got a stock of gluten free foods i can rely on when i try goin gluten free. im gonna concentrate on the gluten free and not think about the dairy for now - sort out breakfast and lunch and then slowly over the next few weeks try a few recipes for tea. im no cook so god knows what they,ll taste like!!!!. think i,ll start with soup. haha!

im british, so im not sure if we get the brands you,ve mentioned, but we have holland and barrett- which is a wholefoods shop, so i,ll have a trip to that an see what i can find- and look in the recipe section on here. bought the organic cornflakes they were in the gluten free section in the supermarket - im guessing they should be ok - but i.ll check and hazelnut milk to try. oh and some fruit smoothies which i thought would be ok for breakfast- no additives at all -just blended fruit . im gonna google american brands and see if anywhere here sells them . not sure wot a hersey bar is but im thinking chocolate lol!

    • Just wondering if you have an update at all? Going through the same thing at the the moment with my type 1 14 yr old. I would be interested to know what your gi said and how your daughters doing now? xx
    • Please check the date on post, you just responded and tried talking to a person from 7 years ago. On consideration to the subject Poatoes are a huge flare factor for my UC and cause my blood sugar to sky rocket...I am not even diabetic but for some reason potatoes (hash browns) that I tried a few months ago with some eggs shot it up over 400. not even a control test with table sugar managed that.
    • Have you tried eliminating high glycemic foods? Fruits, added sugars, starchy grains, potatoes. etc? Also adding in slow digesting fibers and fats can prevent insulin spikes, MCT oil is also known to help and protein. Many find consuming nuts and seeds higher in fiber early on in the meal or before a meal can slow down insulin responses and prevent spikes. I always tend to eat a hand full of whole shell pumpkin seeds, hemp seeds, cocoa nibs, etc. while fixing my food, this gets me starting to feel fuller sooner, and seems to help in over all down the road. I know I had some references somewhere to these. I know I read somewhere about the antioxidants in in whole shell seeds like pumpkin and hemp also helped the body regulate insulin levels.
    • Dear AWOL Cast Iron Stomach, Your husband is right bread is bad for you. Of course it's more than bread and gluten, until now it was amateur hour trying to self diagnose and tame this "lion". However they let you down. You slipped through the cracks over and over again it is not your fault your not the Dr. You made mistakes and errors acting like a celiac , not knowing for sure you were, and not feeling like you could fully claim to be or reach out for support . Now you know your husband was closer than any Dr. up until now to determine your illness. Now something is in your record, now hopefully you will be dismissed less,respected more, maybe they will realize its an actual condition going on- not all in your head. Will they? Who knows! Do you care? This is now official, now explained, you not only have to give up gluten, but milk, and corn. In fact give up 98% of processed anything. The cluster of lifetime symptoms were not  "just you", "in your head", "you are not a difficult patient", "when the Dr or nurse looks at you like a nut job you don't have to feel the dismissiveness and condescension. It's an illness and nothing to be shameful of  what is shameful is they and their colleagues missed you failed you. In fact being missed for 4 decades is unjust to you. You were missed time and time again from age 5 to 43, decade after decade after decade, symptom after symptom. It's not that you didn't try from the 5 year old begging to go to the Dr, to the 20 going to the hospital again for another bout of gastroenteritis hoping to get an IV, to the thirty year old saying something is wrong why is this happening, to the forty something a restaurant fed me gluten when I asked for gluten-free, I have been gluten free for 3 1/2 years ,  I have more symptoms and pain than before . I felt so good for those gluten-free years- please help me-make it stop. So many things explained it makes you experience a range of emotions. Grateful: Relief and gratefulness someone finally agreed to send you to someone to test you. She saw past the other diagnosis' and the albatross IBS diagnosis. All the ages and stages of symptoms are explained they all fit. Everyone of them! Someone else also has had them. You are not alone. Read the forum-you fit like a glove. Anger: Anger for the way you have been treated by the medical community, family, some ex boyfriends, friends and coworkers. Anger for the length of time you endured this. Hurt: Hurt for the times people said unkind things to you when you were symptomatic or flaring . you are experiencing symptoms that change your body people are rude to congratulate you on a "pregnancy" you didn't announce or ask why you are not slim when you hardly eat. you are not over emotional -  you are suffering from neuro symptoms, you are not making this up for attention Sad & Guilty: Can I work again? Do I want to work again? What kind of work can I do now? Can I find a job and work PT from home? You didn't envision this your husband having to be sole bread winner now what? I am overwhelmed thinking about this-stop? You now have closure and know how and why you lost your first pregnancy. You now know why you were high risk, complications,  with your children in Pregnancy & Delivery that they couldn't be explained back then It explains why in pregnancy you lost weight and why your morning sickness was extreme and seemed to last longer than anyone you knew,  that your Puppp rash was likely misdiagnosed DH It is not your fault none of it. Please forgive yourself for what you did not know. Your children forgive you. Believe them when they say its not your fault. You can cry, but you can no longer blame yourself. You are a good mother just one with an illness your children will learn to accept. Withdrawn: Why are you withdrawing from your husband? Should you ask him if he wants a divorce? Should you push him away? You didn't know before marriage what was happening you knew something autoimmune was brewing shortly after, but nothing showed on tests. Was this unfair to do to him? Doesn't he deserve someone better? Someone well? Now you can't retire and travel the world as society retirement cliché dictates. Can you afford this illness ? How will this financially impact your spouse, your family?. Why did you do this to this poor man? You are so selfish, you wanted marriage and kids, but was this fair to them? Don't your kids deserve a healthier mom? How will this impact them? Oh my gosh are they going to get this too? Will they grow to resent you? Your illness and diet has taken over their lives! Oh gosh no one say hi to me-please. I hate people and I am too sick to pretend and be fake friendly today. I don't want to tell you I am ill. I don't want to talk about this. I have to absorb this. I hate you people for being healthy. Don't tell me I don't look well. I will snap, I don't want to snap, I am irritable ,and don't feel well. Just keep giving off the unapproachable vibe keep them away.  Am I strong enough to do this? Acceptance: Calm down the inflammation, lack of nutrients, and GI damage is messing with your head. Your husband said for better for worse. Your kids have no choice you are their mother and you are a good mom -you have always been, always will be even on your worst day. If they get this they will be ok. You are strong enough to do this you are just ill and most importantly you must remain here in case they get this so you can guide them and be there for them. Got it? Go on the forum you are not alone it will be ok. You will get this lion back in the cage and manage it. It will be ok. If you can't travel in retirement one day you will find other hobbies or things to occupy your time. He's not going to leave you over this. If he does it will be ok. You'll manage-you always do. You have an answer, you knew it was coming, keep reading, learning, seeking support, and one day it will all work out. You will process all this and will be at peace-until then keep going and above all AVOID GLUTEN!
