Just looking for information on vitamins. Had some testing come back this week that my bone density is low, as is my B12 and D. So, I clearly need to supplement, but have read that it's hard to trust vitamin brands that say they're gluten free as their regulations are less strict. Is there a list of brands that are safe?
Also, I'm still a mess after this "avocado incident" which is very distressing. Mostly bed bound, in pain (especially after waking), and my bathroom habits are still off. This doesn't make any sense...
Hi, i heard about shampoos etc but didn't think much about it but will definitely look in to it, thanks.
My bloating has subsided slightly snd this is since i change my vitamins from Holland and barrett to some online which are free from everything, nothing added to them and are still high in strength. Maybe you should look into that too.
Keep me updated hun x
Could someone who is more familiar with numbers help me to interpret mine since the doctor did not? Got these results last week and was told to go gluten-free. No endoscopy or further testing needed because it is probable that I have celiac due to positive antibodies. My symptoms are mild with occasional stomach issues.

Migraines are definitely associated with celiac. Many many factors contribute to migraines, which also occur with a celiac. Definitely seek help as your migraines diminish the quality of life. “Don’t worry,” is not an acceptable plan of care. Vitamin deficiencies with celiac can cause or contribute to migraines. Dairy sensitivity can contribute to migraines. Sleep disturbances can contribute. The stress of healing can tax the body and contribute. You need a doctor that partners with you in your care so you can get some relief and function.
Yes, definitely push for the EGD so you get biopsy results. Positive is positive - there’s no “weak” or “strong” in disease diagnosis. Like when you take a pregnancy test, it’s either a plus or minus. Even if the plus is very light, you’re pregnant. Once you go gluten-free with your diet, the biopsy will be sketchy. You deserve a clear diagnosis.
