So, i think it was an over exposure to wheat that started it all. I played water polo so it was carbs, carbs, carbs, and more carbs. Through pasta (yum) and pizza ( double yum) mostly. I started getting weird bumps on my fingers. Then i started feeling bloated, plus i was depressed. I ran across an article on MSN that was "gluten intolerance linked to osteoporosis," sounded interesting so i checked it out. Through that i found the celiac websites and self diagnosed myself. For a short time i had to stay away from dairy but i find i can now have it. (i just don't like all the genetically alter milk and cheese, god bless Trader Joe's and Wild Oats). But i was in denial, and continued to eat wheat. Until my hands go so bad, so itchy, so painful, i cut out the wheat. Now i know when something is infected because my hands break out and i get depressed. Which is so irritating because i know i'm depressed because of the gluten, but i can help but feel crappy.
So recently reading some more info, i need some questions answered.
I have Kaiser as my health car provider, and they SUCK. I've only talked to one doctor in an urgent care room that new what celiac was. I've seen alot of doctors there too. My main Doctor doesn't really know what to do or look for.
So please shoot me over some info on testing, the Ecolab stuff, other food allergy testing, getting my body up and running again, just ANYTHING. Please.
The crappy part about all this is i'm also hypoglycemic, and i love to eat, but i'm now so limited.
