To abbreviate things: I started having symptoms, enterolab said IgA of 24, went gluten free for 8 months, improved slightly, colonoscopy/endoscopy/every other test you can imagine came back negative, took antibiotic for SIBO and improved marginally, Celiac gene test came back negative and standard GI put me back on wheat. After a couple months I still feel the same. "IBS confirmed."
Next up will be a gluten/dairy/grain free alkaline diet, as well as dealing with bacterial dysbiosis, yeast and overall body pollution.
Health aside I'm 19, I just finished my freshman year of college and am finding myself moving in a direction I never would have seen before, making appointments with alternative doctors and reading about techniques and theories I previously would have condemned as witch doctors and the snake oil they peddle.

To tell you the truth I've always wondered if something could be not quite right; before I was born I managed to wrap my umbilical cord around my throat and supposedly deprive myself of Oxygen for a while. Who knows?
My goodness, I hope I don't have Autism or another learning disability. So it is possible then that my toe-walking could be linked to the digestive damage caused by gluten-intolerance? And to the first response, I've never been tested for any muscle problems, but I do play sports and I haven't had any noticeable problems with balance or coordination.
Hey everybody, I've been walking on my tip-toes my entire life. All the time when barefoot, and then a little heel-to-toe action in shoes, but always more towards the toe side. I recently read a post from a few years ago on an un-gluten related forum where someone mentioned that digestive issues had been linked to kids walking on their toes. So heres my information: I'm 19 years old, and I walk on my toes as much now as when I first started walking. My gluten problems began in late May of this year. I've been gluten-free for about 2 months or so. My entire life, I've always had dige
