  1. Thank you very much for the advice. I'll look into including high fiber foods in my diet without the supplement. The doctor has decided to run blood and stool tests to evaluate pancreatic function with a Pancreatic Elactase Fecal test as well as B-12 and Folate levels. Hopefully this will give me...
  2. Okay, thank you so much! What is all the testing that is done for celiacs? I've had half the blood panel, and a biopsy.
  3. I'm not sure if that is affecting anything. She has told me that she uses the restroom pretty regularly and hasn't had extreme or any issues really. Just something she has noticed is that she gets constipated if she has too much of white bread or all-purpose flour. Thank you!
  4. Thank you very much! A point I think I didn't explain properly, my family doesn't have a known history of celiacs. I was just assuming that my mom might have it because of the one constipation symptom. But just not at a serious level but who knows. I hope that the issue isn't celiac but I guess...
  5. i know this is kind of a gross topic but any help would be great. i have generally smooth stools now that do come with a little difficulty still but once they start it gets easier. my stools are really smooth where one long piece will have no cracks of any sort just completely smooth and very...
  6. I've been on a journey figuring out the cause of my digestive issues and i was talking to my mom because of the genetics involved in having celiac passed down (mom hasn't been diagnosed with it), and she said that when she eats white bread maybe one day she doesn't have any issues but iif she continuously...
  7. I'm not yet sure if I have celiacs and with my research I've noticed that a huge majority of euro-descent population have celiacs or the chance to get it. I was wondering if anyone had any knowledge about south-asian or south indians, specifically ones born in india, and raised in the U.S. and their...
  8. I think I will do that when I see my GI in a few weeks. My only concern is that I don't want the GI to assume that I'm undermining his knowledge which is most definitely not what I'm trying to do but so many outlets have given me so much different information I'm not sure what to do with it. I know...
  9. I will be seeing my GI in three weeks and my PCP tomorrow so I will ask them about their input. I will have to wait for my h. pylori treatment to end though i think before I can stop PPI. Thank you!
  10. I looked up images and what I have on my arms looks very similar to it! Thank you!
  11. Hi, I was wondering if someone could describe to me what the DH rash looks like? I've noticed a slight rash on my upper arms but they just look like slight raised bumps and some of them look like acne/pimple rashes with the little pimple discharges inside. Not sure if this is what DH is supposed...
  12. As I mentioned to ironictruth's post I didn't realize PPI's can affect the small intestine and I truly hope it is the PPI's or lack of digestive enzymes from my gallbladder and such. I will look into these links and speak to my Primary Care Provider, hopefully she will be able to guide me. Thank...
  13. I took antibiotics about a month and a half ago because I had some sort of stomach bug and was prescribed the antibiotic Amoxicillin-Clavulanate and prednisone, a steroid for ear inflammation. But its been a bit over a month since my last dose of either of those. The doctor doesn't want to give me...
  14. I will keep that possibility in mind! I will talk to the doctor and see what he can do. Hopefully, my insurance will allow it or the doctor will actually give the test a try. Thank you so much! I'll try to relax until my appointment.
