  1. I am only repeating what I was told, so I don't really know myself. Last night I was reading this article that seems to indicate (in rats anyway) that inflammation can affect nutrient absorption. So that's interesting. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2835780/
  2. Thank you for the replies. The second endoscopy was really mainly looking for an ulcer. I only briefly brought up the topic of celiac when speaking with the consultant. None of us were really thinking of it as a possibility at the time. I had gone from feeling fine to a fairly sudden onset of...
  3. I apologize in advance for the length of this. I'm complicated and very confused. 8 years ago I was tested for celiac because of some vitamin deficiencies. The only test that came back positive was a gliadin iga. An upper endoscopy also didn't find celiac. I didn't have any typical celiac symptoms...
  4. The hematologist doesn't think my iron is a problem and I totally forgot to bring up the itching (mostly because I was so floored that he didn't think iron was a problem that I was speechless). He does think I have low blood volume. Getting that confirmed is not going to happen, so he's treating...
  5. Sadly there are a bunch of reasons why it hasn't been treated yet. 1. The doctor who I asked to check my iron levels isn't my regular GP, so when everything came back "in the normal range" she didn't think anything needed to be done. 2. It took a month for me to get a copy of the actual...
  6. I do plan to go gluten free again. I've just been so fed up with my body's various problems that I needed a break from at least one of them, ya know? It looks like iron deficiency can also cause this type of itching, so it might be related to that. All of the problems I'm currently dealing with...
  7. I know I'm adding to a long and old thread, but as I'm really just describing my own idiocy, I figure I don't need to create a separate thread for it. lol In the realm of 'don't try this at home': To sum up my previous experience, I've figured out that I have gluten ataxia and it is the...
  8. Thanks you guys. I think part of my sadness is that, lately, I am seeing items that I used to buy regularly at my local store getting discontinued. I can understand that gluten and dairy free stuff is not a big seller, but it really sucks when your go-to items are no longer available. Dairy...
  9. I miss being able to find food I can eat. After going up and down the frozen food isle at Albertsons (twice) and not finding any frozen dinners that were gluten and dairy free, I went over to the ready-made counter and asked the attendant if the roasted chicken had any gluten in it. He looked...
  10. I was watching the news a couple of nights ago and there was a story about a treatment for celiac that is under development. It sounds kind of neat because some researchers have been able to invent an enzyme that doesn't exist in nature that can destroy gliadin. Obviously the goal is to treat people...
  11. I did and I left her a thank you note also.
  12. I suspect, considering how long ago you posted the question, that you have already gotten your answer. I'm sure it's different for everyone. I ended up eliminating dairy (kind of by accident, but I decided to just roll with it when it happened) and the first thing that happened for me was a...
  13. If only I had a medical diagnosis... ::sigh::
  14. I had two experiences this weekend. One was unusual and one was not. The unusual one happened at a restaurant. I had ordered a burger on a gluten free bun. We were waiting for our food for a long time and had just begun to speculate on what the hold up was, when our server came over to explain...
  15. You'll want to keep an eye on all your vitamin levels, as absorption problems are quite common with gastritis. You've probably already looked it up, but this is the WebMD page on gastritis. http://www.webmd.com/digestive-disorders/digestive-diseases-gastritis It's not the best article as they mention...
