I would like an official diagnosis. I have been contaminated several times since I have been gluten-free and the results have been horrible. I don't think I could possibly go back on gluten at this point, as I have young children and also have a career where I need to have my brain in top shape. I can't be running to the toilet or spending the day in bed. My husband feels so certain after watching what I go through when I eat gluten and how my body changes when I am gluten-free. I just spent years going to doctors. They thought maybe I had MS, IBS, Meniere's Disease, Lupus, I mean I was given just so many possibilities and so much changed when I went off gluten. I was keen to try anything.
This new dairy thing worries me. I am a major traveler and I love food, as I am sure most of you do too. I couldn't ever have imagined giving up bread. I certainly can't imagine cheese. I also can't really drink anymore because I get major headaches. I am going to France in about 6 weeks and the thought of being there with no gluten or dairy seems like torture. I will have to research gluten-free Paris.
Is there any way to get a diagnosis without a gluten challenge? I can't just eat it once? What is the best kind of doctor to go to now that I am back in the US? Am I definitely healed inside now?
