  1. I cured my gut in the end too. I'll never cure from the secondary condition but gut wise I'm fine. I no longer eat carbs, well.. Not many. For me that provides enough natual immune suppression to let the gut heal. I have the opinion that grains with gluten highlighted and sugar with fructose highlighted...
  2. Just a note about the antifungals. I did diflucan and nystatin for many months at one stage. They arent very effective on candida and diflucan is a harsh drug, imho youll achive more on your diet but itll take a long time. Fungi can lay dormant for... Years no problem, its no instant thing. Try the...
  3. Celiac disease is genetic , the damage causes secondary auto immune disease. You wont see anyone from pure african stock with it because they haven't crossed out with other human species with the stronger immune systems. They will still get messed up by anti biotics though. It should be a given...
  4. Im only posting general knowledge. Wikipedia ok, but i cant be searching links for every little forum on the net. For years all i did was read papers and visit specialists until i was able to find my diagnosis. I learnt a lot, im still not 100% but no one else is doing any better than I am. Its worth...
  5. There are recent studies which show a much greater incidence of immune system disease in kids which have had antibiotics in early life, either at birth or as infants. The one I read was pretty much no antibiotics no disease it was about as conclusive as you get in a study. I do think antibiotics...
  6. I was vegan for 20 years. Hardened strict, saving the world and all that. MAJOR mistake for HLA gene Europeans. Some people thrive as a vegetarian some get ill. If you are not a glowing eyes example with perfect thick skin Id be getting onto a fat based diet before serious damage is done. Some genetic...
  7. You can probably read up on immune systems somewhere and how it is trained by gut flora in the early years. Im just repeating what ive learned from my doctors. You can sometimes achieve cures in auto immue type diseases in young children, usually not in adults. Although they think the adult immune...
  8. Catch up growth is a real thing but its something that happens strongly early on with kids that got low quaility/not enough breast milk or not enough sleep in the first 6 months. My son was below the 5th percentile from 2 months to 6 months but had huge growth once he started solids. At age 2 hes...
  9. Good theory but Im going to suggest your daughters immune problems came from damage in her youth. Kids immune systems are set in their ways by the time they are eight. If your having trouble with milk , celiac disease is already there years ealier.
  10. Your doctor is right. If you have both dq2 and dq8 you should not risk eating gluten. Also people with celiac disease are easy to pick for anyone with some experience. The hla genes are inherented from ancient humans, it gives you immune system advantages but isnt really compatable with modern processed...
  11. It can take years to get better, some people dont recover. B12 shots will fix most of your curent problems within hours of the first shot. Theres a chance youve developed further immune system disease but hopefully not. Youll have to find your own way with foods but my tip is more fats, less carbs...

  13. We are going to come down pretty harshly on this because the long term undiagnosed are living with unfixable problems. Keep eating gluten and you may as well roll a dice on your next autoimmune disease. Get unlucky there and you can end up with organ failure. Youll be at a very high risk of cancer...
  14. I had EoE or something similar when my celiac was at its worst. Which then became a full on eosinophilic disease. Kimuras disease most often involes the saliva glands. An IgE test will confirm or clear you of that easy enough. (thats what I have). It also often causes kidney problems (blood pressure...
  15. You have auto immune disease , positive bloods. You have celiac disease. Genius idea to do nothing, wait for the damage to be permanent, wait till you get t cell cancer, hodgkins. Great idea:). STOP EATING THAT SHIT TODAY, thats what any sane doctor would tell you. Ps have the gene test, if you have...
