Didn't make a career change because there are a lot of benefits working in the health care system in Norway if you have a chronic disease. I get 24 days of fully paid sick leave each year and because I have a documented chronic disease my employee doesn't have to pay anything when I get sick. The welfare administration pay. There aren't a better place to work as a celiac.
However I changed other things. Like my style of clothes. And I generally stopped caring about what other people think of me. When I got diagnosed I think I realized for real that I can actually get diseases and that I'm mortal.
Dear god yes lol, I have a corn allergy and the starch is hit miss if it triggers a reaction, but they could also be from rice, or tapioca....seriously they need to go the route of many shampoos/body washes that list the chemical/ingredient then in parenthesis have the source
Here is the interpretation chart he sent me and yes I have 2 kids in which their pediatrician said they didn’t need to be tested unless they show symptoms which goes against everything I have read about symptoms being silent etc....
Is it possible to have positive antibodies show in blood test but get negative through endoscopy? What would that then mean? I am so confused and frustrated!!!
Well it won’t let me attach file so it says IGE antibody <10 absent and >100 very high level.
Why do you need to supplement? I can understand Vitamin D, but by now you should be absorbing nutrients from your foods since it has been a year or so since you went gluten free. (Is that correct?) You might very well need to supplement, but is celiac disease the root cause (either still active or refractory)? I think you need to see your GI. It might be another autoimmune disorder or illness.
For example, I was not healing after a glutening. My GI wanted to scope but I insisted on going on the Fasano diet. That diet did not help because gluten was not the issue. I had autoimmune gastritis as revealed by the gastric and small intestinal biopsies. My celiac disease was in remission and I had healed but my stomach was a mess.
