  1. I would think that if she is not being glutened by cross contamination, and consuming 0 gluten, there is another issue happening. If you want to be 100% sure that is not the gluten that is making these symptoms appear than I would have her IgA levels tested to see if they have came down and are in...
  2. Can a regular family doctor test and/or diagnose candida overgrowth in celiac patients? How is this normally treated?
  3. So I finally had the biopsy about 2 days ago, so I am now gluten free YA! I am so excited about that, Finally. The biopsy went pretty good, it takes like 5 mins to do, and you go home like an hour later, so that was good. The doctor said it looked "Normal" but that they usually do look normal until...
  4. So I now have one more week before my biopsy, the waiting really sucks, regarless of the results I am going gluten free. I read on here how inconclusive the results can be for the biopsy, and that really blows my mind as the doctors say that the biopsy is the only way to get a 100% true diagnosis...
  5. [quote name='Mosaics' date='Apr 2 2008, 11:49 AM']We all start out with a lot to learn. I saw on your profile that you are suffering with fatigue. Your doctor will, or perhaps already has checked your blood for B12 levels. If you are low on B12, that could be causing fatigue. You might...
  6. [quote name='GlutenWrangler' date='Jan 25 2008, 02:30 PM']I don't eat because I can't eat. I've been on IV nutrition since June 27th. I probably won't be eating any time soon either, since no doctors can figure out how to treat my condition. -Brian[/quote] Brian That is...
  7. So I seen the specialist yesterday and discussed the endoscopy/biopsy and believe it or not I only have to wait another week and a half to have it done and then I can go gluten free. He really told me to try and keep eating gluten so the results will be more accurate. If he had of said anything over...
  8. [quote name='Mosaics' date='Mar 31 2008, 03:06 PM']Biopsy, as in endoscopy? No, it doesn't hurt. They'll put you to sleep and you won't feel a thing. As for lactose intolerance...I've read that about 50% of people with celiac disease are also lactose intolerant. However...
  9. Hi Kristalee Jane, today is my first day as a member of this forum and it seems you and I are in a similar situation. I had bloodwork done last week and scored 79 on the Iga test I also had a positive ANA test. My appointment with the Gi doc isn't until the 23rd. I too feel like I am in a waiting game. I have been having bad joint pain, I worry about Rheumatoid arthritis or who knows what. I

  10. Two more days till my consultation with the gastronlogist, hopefully after that my appointment for the scope will be relatively short becuase I don't know how much longer I can keep eating gluten, it really feels like its killing me. I also have another appointment with my family doctor to request...
  11. Well today I thought Might be a good day and so far it has been not too bad, My muscles are aching really bad in my shoulders and neck. My stomach was bothering me earlier so I took some of my Pariet, which usually makes those terrible aches and pains go away. For the muscle aches I usually pop a...
  12. [quote name='Mosaics' date='Mar 27 2008, 07:26 PM']I don't think you should be overly worried about infertility. Personally, I do think there is a link between celiac disease and infertility, but, IMO, it is rare. My Mom has celiac disease and had four kids, no miscarriages, no problems. I had...
  13. Well I am happy in a way that I finally found out what is going on with me, and why I have felt this way for years now. The only crappy thing is that I know have to wait to get the biopsy done before I can start the gluten free diet. I have a consultation with the surgeon on tuesday april 1st, and...
