  1. I have minimal GI symptoms. If I go gluten-free, I feel better but when I eat gluten, nothing major to remark of. I'm the kind of person who likes to do one thing at a time to get clear answers, so will add in the enzymes after the 3 mos gluten-free and bloodwork test. My chiropractor has...
  2. Sorry if this posts weird, my phone is grabbing all previous posts when I try to reply. It's ugly. My diet is very low on packaged/processed foods to begin with, so the move to gluten-free was not a huge issue, and isn't including a gluten-free substitute product for the most part. As...
  3. I've been taking the AREDs for a while and doing the test regularly, as advised by my doctor. I still have "dry" and decent vision, but it is progressing. With taking that and several other suggested supplements, my zinc level is still quite low (as are others) which has led the doctors to speculate...
  4. I lost about 25 pounds a year ago by cutting back my carbs (and by default, lowering my gluten consumption to very low). I added in gluten this past Thanksgiving for the bloodwork and never went back to the lower carbs (I primarily substitute with veggies, quinoa. I still exercised, tracked my...

Many of the FODMAP foods are staples for me when gluten-free and feeling quite good. I'm not saying that it can't be, but I'd be surprised if it were...
  6. Thanks! Im working with a specialist that deals with weird stuff that often stems from mitochondria and autoimmune. 15 years ago, I went through the gastro route but it was a nightmare because I kept getting brushed off (I had the EGD at my insistence and my GP begrudgingly referred me out). I...
  7. Thanks for replying. I'm in my early 40s and have been through just about every blood test and a few others to figure out the root cause of the malabsorption. I am fairly sure the doctor did the test to see if I'm IgA deficient - can you tell me? Here's the list of bloodwork I had done that day...
  8. I have macular degeneration decades earlier than normal with no familial history. The going theory is that my vitamin levels have been low for many years, supplementation barely helps. I have modified my diet over the years to exclude refined garbage, minimize (though not exclude) gluten. I have...
