  1. Ask for a SIBO test. It will check to see if you have a bacterial overgrowth. Sibo can make you react badly to a lot of foods. A HIDA scan might be a good idea too? It will test to see if your gallbladder releases the bile and enzymes you need to digest your food. If you are taking an acid...
  2. After going gluten-free I started reacting to a LOT of other foods. I was given the hydrogen breath test at Mayo Clinic and had high readings in both hydrogen and methane. I was told I likely had a severe case of SIBO. I was given a couple of anti-biotics and didn't see any changes in my health...
  3. Could you share your chicken potato soup recipe? I hate the rice noodles, but loved chicken soup. With potatoes, I think it would be a good soup for me.
  4. Went to the GI that first DXed me yesterday. I didn't stick with her because she didn't seem too knowledgeable. Saw another GI here in town..who referred me to Mayo Clinc... She looked at my file and noted that it says I appear to have a severe case of bacterial overgrowth. She looked up at...
  5. At one time a few years ago I had alternating C and D. Then it slowly changed to C, all of the time. When I was DXed with Celiac about a year ago, the GI said the C should clear up on it's own over time, but I should be sure to drink plenty of water. I've struggled to regain my health since...
  6. I'm so glad you've gotten some resolution. At the first of the year we changed insurance and they make us get our RXs through their mail order business. We had to get new RXs written rather than transfer the ones we had in place, so I had to scramble to get those and get the meds in hand for...
  7. Absolutly shocking! I'd demand to get the medical records. If doc 1 doesn't turn them over..report him. I'd also be looking to turn CVS in for not allowing an RX to be transferred. They might not want to fill it..but surely they can't refuse to transfer to another pharmacy? One more reason...
  8. I had a bad reaction to cookies made with a flour blend that contained sorghum. I thought maybe the sorghum had cc? The other flours in the blend were ones I had eaten without a problem many times. I still wonder if I can't tolerate sorghum..or if it was cc?
  9. Shocking! Is there a different Dr. you can see? If it were me...I wouldn't want to see this clueless Dr. for anything!
  10. I have to say..my exerience with Dr.s has not been good. They don't listen and insist on putting people on anti-depressants, no matter what their ailment is. When I kept complaining about my many various symptoms from unDXed Celiac..they kept offering me more med to numb me down! It really...
  11. Very interesting. I've done that for years..but never knew there was a name for it. If I were to tell someone it was like I forgot to breathe..they would think I was daffy, but that's what it feels like? I have Vicodin for pain issues from a spinal surgery and for migraines. I only take it...
  12. Some of us have a hard time digesting the alternative flours too, at first. Are you taking a digestive enzyme with your meals? They may help as your digestive system is healing.
