  1. Thanks for the reply, I’ll try cutting out the carbs , the only dairy I have is milk in tea . I’ve been on the gluten-free diet for nearly two years now , I do eat a lot of carbs , but this last week I have been ravenous, pretty much how I was before I was diagnosed, my wife couldn’t fill me and c...
  2. Hi , no I don’t know the cause of pars hyperthyroidism, but he did say that my level was back to normal, they didn’t test for my glucose
  3. Hi , yes I’m a celiac, I had the endo done Aug 2016 , shows very smooth intestinal walls and lots of patchy inflammation etc , my latest bloods showed a drop in my antibodies 10.7 , so down from15.5 , maybe I had gluten exposure somewhere, but it’s a little concerning to me , I still eat like a h...
  4. Hi , thanks for the reply, the reason my calcium is quite high is because my parathyroid gland was all out of sync when I was first diagnosed , it controls the calcium levels in the blood, my parathyroid was taking the calcium from my bones and dumping it into my blood, hence I also have osteoporosis...

Hi , I'm slightly concerned with some weight loss I've been having , I've lost 5Ib in 7 weeks , I went from 11stone 5lb to 11stone , I weighed myself this morning , I haven't altered my diet and over the last couple of weeks , I started to eat more when I realised the weight loss was there , it has...
  6. Thank you again , I forwarded the link onto my brother who is a fan of "Corona " and he was astounded by the review, 200ppm , and its classed as safe ?! Well I don't think he'l be drinking it anymore ,like he says , he's spent the last year on a totally gluten free diet even buying his own pans...
  7. Thank you for the replies , Its a big help to know there are lots of people in the same boat, willing to offer advice, my own brother is a Celiac and has spoken to me, its all very daunting what to eat and what not too eat and beer ... I like it a lot , but my brother drinks Corona and says its fine...
  8. Hi everybody, well , I received a text from the doctor late yesterday evening to go down this morning at 08.30 , so I did, he then gave me a report saying my diagnosis is as follows . "Patchy inflammation of the duodenal mucosa, increased intraepithelial lymphocytes , crypt hyperplasia with villous...
  9. Thank you all for the replies , its very helpful , thanks again
  10. Many thanks , the other thing I was going to ask is , is it still possible to eat like a horse (which I do ) feel real hunger pangs , lose a couple of pounds , and still have functioning villi ? Its all a bit beyond me. I never put weight on , 72kg, if I was malabsorbing it would be a positive biopsy...
  11. Many thanks for the replies , sorry for posting twice , I didnt realise it had posted twice ! Im seeing the doctor who did the endoscopy again at some point , but im not going to have another biopsy, Im going to try the diet and stick with it, see how it goes, I have the antibodies so possibly its...
  12.
