  1. Just a quickie, have been very busy this weekend and could not get online.. Will respond in a day or 2 when I am free, and thank you Scott, will put the soap recipe on too.. DHC has added C for Condition, saw it written that way somewhere on the net, will kick that habit..!
  2. Hi.. Cant offer you dietary help with DH (I have it too) but it seems you have some very good ideas and thoughts above for that, but have just been writing on my own post about making your own soap and how much it helps with my DH and the skin conditions of several friends. I know that is not...
  3. Hey Scott.. Thanks for that, I had waded through some of those articles and in particular the one named 'Abnormal Liver Function Tests in Celiac Disease Often Normalize with a Gluten-Free Diet' which is kind of what I am aiming for over the next 6 weeks.. I will repeat the blood tests then and...
  4. Wow.. Looks like I am still taking the first baby steps on this journey, yours sounds like it taken you on a slow boat to China and back.. Well done for getting through covid, celiac is bad enough without this virus.. Not sure it is my sugar levels, I dont eat any processed food, I am fairly...
  5. Well I have had the results of my first blood test, negative.. Wish I could tell you more but was too busy picking myself up off the floor.. Have requested a copy of the test from my doc but it is not normal for them to hand them out in this country.. That was quite a shock as have been eating...
  6. Hi GFinDC.. Thanks for that, I seem to be continually playing catch up with this and as I still do not know what is going on with my health, my mind has a tendency to fire off in all directions until it hits something.. I do have a month before I had agreed to try backing off gluten, and giving...
  7. Thanks RMJ, I agree and it was one of the points that I discussed with my doc. During that month, I would hope that there is at least a degree of symptom reduction, and that would be all I would be expecting and hoping for. My doc has reasoned that any evidence at all that I am celiac, and she...
  8. I have not been tested for celiac yet, am just suspicious that I have it. But I do have a severe nightshade vegetable allergy and the mood/panic attacks and anxiety is very much a symptom of that. Been fighting that most of my life (varying degrees of success), but have only been relatively free...
  9. Hey Beverage (Bev for short?).. Mmm, feeling like a bit of a sellout now.. After my summer of discovery regarding my nightshade allergy, very little input from any medical folk here and a complete lack of info in the UK, I ended up looking around the USA where the situation was completely reversed...
  10. Hey there.. a fellow limey.. 🙂 Firstly, lots of luck. Really hope you get a proper diagnosis and are able to get to the bottom of it. I thought it was going to be difficult trying to avoid nightshades until I went through my food cupboards and fridge yesterday and put a red sticker on everything wi...
  11. Thanks Scott and RMJ, am feeling a little more confident in which direction to point myself in now.. That link is perfect and tells me that my doc will deal with the first blood test step, hopefully we can do it while socially distancing.. Maybe a drive by blood test.. Have read so many heart...
  12. Hi Scott, thank you for the reply.. Am seeing my doctor tomorrow, have already been discussing my nightshade allergies with her, but she is clearly not in her comfort zone with the idea of allergies. Personally, I do not normally use doctors to diagnose anything, I use them as medicine dispensers...
  13. Hi all.. This is still all very new to me.. I am from the UK and in the mid 1980's, when the medical world was beginning to grasp the extent of food allergies, the NHS made a decision to not treat food allergies due to a lack of funding. Very short sighted decision as it has probably cost a...
