  1. Hi @yogajc I hope some regular commenters reply to you. Having been intrigued, impressed by and interested in the success of the ketogenic diet, particularly as it pertains to metabolic and blood vessel health, I have not ever attempted to seriously maintain myself on it, having been daunted...
  2. Can you share the link that indicates the Dulcolax has gluten? I searched online and couldn't find it. I did see that the Australian site for Dulcolax says it's gluten free. But that doesn't mean the US version is. They may also have different definitions of gluten-free. https://dulcolax.com...
  3. You're welcome. Important that you do have a specialist who can monitor this, to rule out a bleeding ulcer. Good luck.
  4. Coughing or vomiting up blood can be caused by blood in the upper GI system, in particular the stomach. If it truly is "coffee ground emesis" (vomit), that generally means it's been in the stomach a while. I'm not sure about the gallbladder. Maybe. I'm obviously not a GI specialist! You said...
  5. My first thought reading this is to ask if the cough is from the GI or respiratory tract? Which do you think? Otherwise, you are doing the right thing by pursuing blood tests, just make sure your doc is ordering the right panel of tests. You can develop active celiac after testing negative ...
  6. I sometimes shop at a market called Streets, which sells Katz gluten free pies. Usually I buy cherry or blueberry, but they also have apple, though I've never tried it. These are frozen pies that need to be heated, and the blueberry and cherry ones are very very good. I will add that they are hardly...
  7. Today I was at the farmers' market and a nice vendor asked me, after I inquired about the sausage's gluten free-ness, how sensitive I am. Generally, I'm not someone who uses this terminology. Little background - I once saw Alessio Fasano - just because if I was going to have to give up cupcakes and...
  8. I think you mean meditation, and if you are talking about doing as much good as a hot tub in relation to eating gluten, I likely agree with you. If you are talking about in general - I do not.
  9. Something is definitely going on, and that's why it's good you're getting both the EGD and the colonoscopy. Your liver enzymes are normal, a good thing. Before diagnosis, my alkaline phosphatase (ALK) would sometimes come back low, which is consistent with celiac disease, I've learned. (All liver...
  10. Adding the message below today (Nov 8, 2020), after receiving Peter Attia's weekly email. Peter is a physician focusing on the applied science of longevity. His practice deals extensively with nutritional interventions, exercise physiology, sleep physiology, emotional and mental health, and pharmacology...
  11. Sure, and to clarify my sentence, "What I wonder, given your symptoms, is if there is not another component," I mean, in addition to celiac disease.
  12. The two test results you posted are for exposure to gluten in the short term. One seems to have been positive, but not the other. Nevertheless, it does kind of seem like you had improvement on a gluten-free diet. What I wonder, given your symptoms, is if there is not another component, such as SIBO...
