  1. Hi KMS83. You might ask your doctor for an updated TTG blood test which shows the level of gluten antibodies in your system. If your gluten antibodies are still high now, a year and a half after your initial diagnosis, that could be an indicator that you are still getting regularly exposed...
  2. Just wanted to point out this article language: "*Important Notice medRxiv publishes preliminary scientific reports that are not peer-reviewed and, therefore, should not be regarded as conclusive, guide clinical practice/health-related behavior, or treated as established information." ...
  3. I also wanted to add that, in addition to a dentist visit, I have had several visits to my doctors' offices/clinic over the past year for preventative care, routine blood tests, an annual flu shot and pharmacy refills. Was I nervous/scared? Absolutely (and still am every time I leave my house...
  4. Hi Charks. Do I think your partner is overreacting? Yes...but we are all understandably nervous these days. I've not seen any valid study discussing higher risk of CV to those with celiac disease or other GI issues. However, I have seen PLENTY of studies linking poor dental hygiene/neglect...
  5. Hi Cristiana. After you realized you had neck problem and tinnitus, how was it treated? PT? Chiro? Did the tinnitus go away when the dizziness resolved? Have you had any recurrence of these symptoms since 2013? I've had dizziness, tinnitus, along with audiophobia, all of which seemed to develop...
  6. Hi Scott. Just wondering...how long ago did you have this symptom (vertigo, room spinning sensation) before your celiac disease diagnosis? AFTER your celiac disease diagnosis and beginning of a gluten-free diet and return to "normal" G blood test range, did you STILL struggle with it, or ever have...
  7. Doctors like to blame many symptoms on depression IMHO. And they are right to a certain extent. But depression can also be a symptom of physical illness. Yes. But extreme depression/anxiety can also CAUSE (or manifest in) many physical symptoms, including constant, severe fatigue. Or it...
  8. Same here. IMO these dietary "supplements"--like so many others on the market offer customers no more than unproven marketing claims, wishful thinking, and dangerous false sense of security that can actually seriously hurt people with celiac disease disease by misleading them. (Beano and Lactaid...
  9. Hi GFinDC. Can you recommend any specific, certified gluten-free potato chip brands that you have personally eaten and like? I used to LOVE Ruffles chips and had to give them up after bad indigestion when I ate them. I think Frito-Lay (FL) makes Ruffles? The last time I was in a store and...
  10. ROFL. Nice comeback to previous post who said "everything is caused by celiac disease". Hmmm. celiac disease experts estimate that only 1-3% of the global population has celiac disease, whereas 75-90% of ER visits of all patients are attributed to extreme depression/health anxiety. I seriously...
  11. Very likely your body will quickly tell you.. esp. your "second brain" (aka gut)..😉 That's how it usu. works with me but many folks aren't bothered by GI symptoms and some with celiac disease tolerate oats, dairy and many more foods without any problems. Sadly, I'm not one of them and I really mi...
  12. You're welcome! I saw a neuro months ago and after the eval./tests he said my symptoms (neuropathy, dizziness) were likely anxiety from a mix of recent celiac disease diagnosis and chronic, bad stress/insomnia. But I admit I did feel reassured after consulting with him as I tend to be a...
  13. Hi trents. Just curious, you said you were first diagnosed with celiac disease almost 20 years ago, long before retirement, so did you mean that you could not maintain a strict gluten-free diet while still working?? Were you eating out a lot back then? And how long did it take you to heal your...
  14. I moved to California in 2014. I haven't stopped sneezing, suffering burning eyelids, nasal congestion/post-nasal drip/dry and sore throat ever since. I have those symptoms 24/7, no matter what kind or how many antihistamines I take. I think the increasingly severe air pollution from fire...
  15. Spot on, Ivana! Thanks so much for your response. It's far too easy to overlook or downplay anxiety/depression in general, let alone the role it can play in celiac disease. I've read that sudden, severe anxiety or trauma can even trigger or "activate" full blown celiac disease in people...
