  1. I too enjoyed jogging and being moderately active prior to diagnosis. My weight decreased and I became rather weak around the time of diagnosis and even got to a place where I couldn't really work out at all. For me, I was drastically underweight. I chose a weight goal, (170) @ 5'11' and used...
  2. For what it's worth, I've heard the "low-gluten" suggestion before but for Celiac's, this is sorely inadequate. I recommend partaking in the wine or "blood" but not the wafer or "body." My priest approved this practice as well. This is obviously subject to your religious beliefs and those...
  3. Hi - This happened to me as well. Here are some thoughts to ponder that may help... 1. Make sure you are making an extra effort to stay hydrated. I don't mean drink gallons at a time but make sure you get adequate water. 2. Eat bananas. Make fruit smoothies at your house and drink those once...
  4. No. 1/8 of one teaspoon creates a reaction in our bodies even if we don't feel it per se.
  5. If you are going to eat a banana, I suggest doing it in the morning with your normal breakfast. Eggs and bacon, or on top of a waffle, or mixed in your gluten free rice crispies... If I eat them early in the day, I'm fine... If I eat them later in the day its like all my other food plus a banana...
  6. Just noticed this is an old thread. Never hurts to re-visit a topic when necessary!
  7. I wouldn't get discouraged yet. Five days--thats early. I would give yourself a month or so to see if you have improvement. Try lotioning BEFORE you get in the shower--your entire body. Instead of a hot shower, take a warm one and keep it short. Pat your skin dry instead of rubbing it. Use...
  8. Hi! Welcome to the forum. Have you been tested for Celiac Disease or do you just feel like you do better when you stay away from it? You said you aren't having a flatulence issue--that's a good thing. Early in my celiac disease diagnosis and gluten-free diet my movements were much like you described...
  9. I don't have an answer but I do have a suggestion for you to investigate and see if it's right for you… 1. Gluten Free 2. Alcohol Free 3. Casein Free The first two are absolutes in my mind. As for the casein, this is meat and dairy. Give yourself a month or two and if you find symptom r...
  10. I enjoyed reading this very much. I have intermittently had some issues with this as well and my eyes "appear" fine to my optometrist. Good to see it can work its way out.
  11. I have had the heat sensation you are describing. It was quite uncomfortable and rather disturbing to me. It was early in my diagnosis. It also went away. When this happens, DO NOT stand around in the shower with really hot water running down your back and be sure to pat it dry but do not rub...
  12. I downloaded an app for my iPhone called "MyFitnessPal" which is a calorie counter and food tracker. I entered in my height and weight. I also entered in my target weight goal. To gain weight, it put me on a 2,600 calorie per day diet. I stuck to it religiously. Sometimes I went over but never...
  13. Wow... This thread blew my mind... I wasn't referred around too quite as many specialties but had many of the same symptoms and conversations that you mentioned. During my DX, my PCP was a good guy but just couldn't nail it down, he did finally send me to a GI and uro for some symptoms, the uro...
  14. Hey there, way to stay on top of things! I initially misread your lab values. I am absent IGA but you obviously are not so nevermind! Good luck with things...
  15. I have been absent IGA all of my life. The physicians used my anti-gliadin IGG as the metric to diagnose with. My IGG was elevated so we did a biopsy of my small intestine that confirmed my diagnosis. It is highly possible that you have celiac disease.
