  1. A doctor told me that the protein structure in casein is similar to gluten. I also remembered reading a study or two about it before he told me that. I just want to know if it may damage my gut like gluten. I assume lactose intolerance doesn't damage your gut like gluten, but I don't know about casein...
  2. "Gluten and casein have a similar molecular structure and the by-products of their metabolism form substances known as gluteomorphin and casomorphin respectively. We discuss this in our book The Gluten Effect.These “morphins” refer to a morphine-like chemical, though it is much milder than mor...
  3. Since casein in dairy has similar protein as gluten which your body can react to, do you eat milk, butter, heavy or half and half cream, yogurt, kefir or cheese? Do you think one can only heal from celiac disease if these foods are avoided? Although I no longer eat gluten due to celiac disease...
  4. I always thought celiac disease involved inflammation of the small intestine, but a GI doctor told me this was not true or it's not an inflammatory bowel condition. Was the doctor wrong?
  5. I've had undiagnosed celiac disease for decades. As a child, I suffered from constipation and still do. After being on a gluten-free diet for 3 years, I'm not sure if I gained 20 lbs due to having a hysterectomy or gluten-free diet at the same time. I know that women often gain weight during menopause...
  6. I've had constipation instead of diarrhea myself. Oh, there's no way I'm going back to this doctor. I didn't know how she was until I read her report at the end of testing, which took her 2 months to finally write. Why is it that doctors react like your'e a smart a** when you suggest for them...
  7. I received the amended records in the mail. I don' think the doctor even read my email with the amendment request since she only corrected one statement I never said...the statement I gave as example while briefly talking to her on the phone the other day. So, I called the office to inquire why the...
  8. Actually, there is a place I could complain to about how my request to amend my record was handled. zthey really messed up onthis one. I think this doctor was too careless to set a HIPPA policy in place or doesn't pay attention to generic forms included to fill out with new patient forms. I'm debating...
  9. The following link might be helpful for others experiencing simlar psychosomatic issues with doctors. Although it's only for psychiatrists, I think it should be for all doctors! http://www.psychsearch.net/complaints/ The neuropsychiatrist I saw might fall into this category? I can checkmark...
  10. The office is located in another city than where I go. There is no receptionist at the location closest to me meaning patients wait for the doctor to open her closed door to call their names for a consult. So, I would have to knock on her door which would really make her say that I'm sick since I...
  11. Thanks. I'm not sure if the doctor will read another email I send and that's the way I'm told by staff to contact her. It will just confirm that I keep writing her letters although I only sent her one email about it! I already told the staff and her that I didn't want my medical records sent to any...
  12. I called this doctor's office again to inquire if my medical records have been corrected. When I called to amend my records because there was inaccurate information, the staff member told me that I need to write my complaint in email to doctor. So, that's what I did. The doctor wrote things I said...
  13. I'm frustrated that many docgors still don't know as much as they should about celiac disease. Maybe they don't make the effort to study it since they think it's rare. Which test(s) confirmed Non Hodgkin Lymphoma? Does it show up in CBC with differential blood test? Since I have gone undiagnosed...
  14. What about ordering a salad at a pizza chain? Is flour flying around onto the salad, too?
  15. Many pizza chains warn me not to order their gluten-free pizza if I am very sensitive to gluten or have celiac disease. I don't understand why they bother to make gluten-free pizza if it can't be eaten by those who need to avoid gluten. How do you know which pizza chains to trust? If they only cook...
