  1. Well, sounds like you if something works for you, then keep doing it... but, one thing struck me. you described the feeling of having a lump in your throat. That is something that folks with thyroid problems sometimes feel... and having a swollen thyroid or nodules can affect swallowing...
  2. I also have had this. I had had issues with vitamin levels and with back/joint problems. My doctor and I keep a close eye on my vitamins, my sugar levels, and I make sure to get enough sleep and try to keep stress under control. I would suggest having a chat with your doctor and see if he/she will...
  3. If they make you feel bad, don’t eat them. I know. Not particularly helpful 😊 but really, each person reacts differently to different things. My suspicion, in your case, from what you said, is that you might be one of those folks who also reacts to oats. Some do. Make sure they are certified glut...
  4. Well, if those were the only tests run, I would have to say it is possible you are celiac but the tests you had done are not enough to say for sure. You need more diagnostic work done. You have the chromosome for it but that doesn’t mean you have active celiac. as for the nausea, yes, nausea i...
  5. Interesting. When I was fingerprinted for a background check for my job, nothing they did could get the machine to read my fingerprints... just too faint. I figured it was the forty years of constant hand washing as a preschool spec ed teacher that wore them off. Maybe not!
  6. Might want to have your thyroid checked as well as vitamin levels.
  7. No, you don’t need to be eating dairy and soy to be tested for celiac. Yes, damage from celiac can cause lactose intolerance... the part of the villi in the small intestines that digests milk is the top part and it is the part that shows the damage. Yes, there are lots of people with celiac who h...
  8. Yes, celiac runs in families. You can have testing done to see if you carry the chromosomes that predispose you to it. There are many folks who have the chromosomes who never develop celiac, but it is my understanding that if you don’t have those chromosomes then you probably don’t have celiac.......
  9. Well, I would think your GI doc would want you to have been eating gluten before both the blood test and the endoscopy . That said, this is how my experience went down: I had symptoms and was misdiagnosed for years and years. I met a new friend who suggested going gluten free. I did so about a year...
  10. I agree. Keep eating gluten. But don’t let Dr Internet diagnose you. Keep an open mind. It might be celiac... but then again it might not be. Might be vitamin deficiencies. Might be you are not taking in the right form of B12 or need folate instead of folic acid. Might be your diet includes something e...
  11. It seems that you have complicated symptoms... there may be more than one thing going on. Perhaps you could find a physician who could work with you to figure out what is what. It might not be celiac. It sounds like you need to have all of you vitamin levels run and a bunch of body systems looked...
  12. Have you kept a food dairy and tracked what you were eating and drinking before you had diarrhea? Does anything make you feel better? If you are having nonstop diarrhea, you may need medical help to calm you gastric system down. If you could figure out what you CAN eat safely, you can base your meals...
  13. Fatigue can be related to low B12. Joint and muscle pain can be related to low vit D. Being low in both vitamins is common with celiac. There are also other sensitivities that cause gastric problems... dairy, and corn are common... but these also can go along with celiac. Get tested by a doctor....
  14. I did. I had been gluten free or mostly gluten free for a couple of years prior to testing, though. After the negative celiac blood tests, the GI doc gave me the gene test to rule out celiac and was surprised to have that come back showing I had the genes. He then did the biopsies and was even more...
  15. It means you have the potential for developing celiac. Many folks have the genetic variants but do not have celiac... some develop it eventually, some do not. So, now you know it is possible for you to develop celiac, get tested for the disease. You need to be eating gluten during the testing stage...
