  1. Or you may have had celiac disease, and your doctors prescribed surgery, thus they are guilty of malpractice and you need a lawyer. This has happened before. I hope that is not the case here, but with 4 positive test it seems that the doctors may see that something is wrong, and that thing might...
  2. 99 percent of all whole food is gluten free, so there is no food shortage for celiacs. Yogurt as I said contains lactose which is very hard for people who had their intestine damaged by gluten to digest, lactose is poison for me, as is gluten so I can not take the advise to eat yogurt without great...
  3. I am not a fan of yogurt, not that I do not like it as I do. However one pill that contains no calories has more and more types of bacteria than does a gallon of yogurt, also yogurt contains lactose which is poison for me and many others who had their guts damaged by gluten. The really bad thing...
  4. I think the real point is that once a person goes completely gluten free, that there is no need to take any medications. That said there are no medications for gluten intolerance, all you can and need to do is to stop eating gluten. I actually used probiotics for about 6 months, but now I am completely...
  5. Villi do not always heal to the extent that lactose can be tolerated. Mine never have. Maltodextrine is a wheat product most of the time, however corn maltodextrine is a corn product and is safe for those who can not consume gluten. What is maltodextrin? Maltodextrin is a food additive...
  6. Can a person with gluten disorder die from complications of eating gluten? Yes or no only please. The correct answer is why no person with pains should continue to consume the poison that is causing those pains. Also remember that once a doctor diagnoses this, they can no longer treat you for it...
  7. I went to a doctor a few days ago for an unrelated issue. We got to talking about my self diagnosed celiac disease and lactose intolerance. Since she is a doctor she has to know more than me, at one point she ask me what do I eat as though this could not be true. I should have responded food....
  8. No probiotic can make a patient better. There is no medicine for celiac disease, to treat the disease you must stop consuming gluten. Also if you need a probiotic, you are still not gluten free. No doctor prescribes probiotics to cure gluten disorder, if they do they are quacks.
  9. If celiac disease has been making you sick for 8 years and you know that you have this, then it is your fault for continuing to eat gluten. This is not your doctors fault.
  10. Because you noticed the problems at home after you ate enough gluten to cause a reaction in your system, you did not eat enough gluten in Italy to cause that reaction. Also you are here for 99.9999 percent of the time, so do the math.
  11. Your doctor is a typical insurance fraud specialist. The blood test means nothing, it will be negative most of the time. Also if you had a biopsy before a typical blood test, this is so bad as to qualify as malpractice, as it is backwards. This is like doing a cancer operation before the cancer...
  12. It takes a full 2 years for the damage that a serious gluten issue can cause to heal. You will still be finding things in them that contain gluten for at least another year on average. I found lactose in my allergy pills recently. Remember that maltodextrine is made from wheat, so always look...
  13. Are you taking an acid blocker such as Prilosec under a doctors care? this will decrease acid letting your stomach heal, this was very important for me. Bye the way, it takes 2 full years for healing to be complete. Are you also lactose intolerant due to the gluten issue like me? If so milk will...
  14. You misunderstood, all the brands contain bacteria. http://www.walgreens.com/store/c/walgreens-daily-probiotic-caplets/ID=prod6157153-product I used this with good luck, but now since I learned what I was doing wrong, they are not needed.
  15. If you want to be healthy you need to eat real food, not protein shakes that were not helping you in the first place. Try tuna on Udis hotdog rolls, it's delicious and healthy too.
