  1. Update: I have fibromyalgia and leaky gut. I'm not anemic, but I am iron deficient. A ferritin level of 29 is iron deficient. I got ferritin retested, and it's now at 39. According to Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum, "Technically, ferritin levels are considered to be in the normal range if they are over 12...
  2. I have to agree with you that I have NCGS. I've been using vitamin water, but nothing happens. No matter what I do, I'm foggy and tired. Even Monsters don't work like they used to. Thank you for the advice! This is definitely deficiency, which is different than anemia, but I'll still have to get...
  3. The B12 levels were obviously not accurate in determining if I have B12 deficiency if I took supplements that day.
  4. The ferratin level of 29 from last year was in "normal range." It was not optimal, though. Doctors and nurse practitioners are taught to look at normal levels; however, normal does not mean optimal. I am really curious to know what my ferratin levels are now, a year later. The doctor and NP...
  5. Ok. 2 weeks without gluten and a month cutting back on it produced a negative result. Let's say I don't have celiac, which I'm leaning toward I don't (in which case, I wouldn't be salty if you deleted my account, but I would appreciate it if you kept this post up for at least a few days first.)....
  6. Hi, so I have attached my test results. I just realized she didn't tell me to stop taking my supplements before the test. I was on 1000 mcg of B12, a women's daily vitamin, biotin supplement, and potassium supplement per day for about 2-3 weeks before the test. I took these supplements the day of...
  7. I got my blood checked, and everything was normal. I'm at a loss of what to do. I'm beginning to think I am really just mentally ill even though I don't think I'm depressed or psychotic, but if the doctors think I am, it must be true! (sarcasm partially intended). I'm interested in what the last...
  8. Basically, she only tested for DGP Ab IgA and DGP Ab IgG. The first was 3, the second was 2. I thought those tests were only given to people with IgA deficiencies? To what extent can I rule out celiac? What do you think?
  9. Ok, I'm questioning my sanity now. Maybe these symptoms are psychosomatic. I'm reading a ton on it right now. But since I cut out gluten and tree nuts a couple weeks ago, my heart rate has been gradually declining. Averages beginning with 2/14 - present (3/2): 102, 98, 98, 98, 97, 96, 94, 93, 94...
  10. I know exactly what you mean. :/ I ate like a 1/4 bottle of gas x one time. Another time I got so uncomfortable I looked up how to relieve it. Lie down on your back and hug your knees. It works like 75% of the time. One time I tried a fiber bar.
  11. I told the NP that I was supplementing starting a couple weeks ago lol she didn't say anything. She probably didn't care. I took a DNA test using Ancestry.com about 7-8 years ago. I downloaded a copy of my raw DNA and uploaded it to the website Promethease last year. For $5, they gather information...
  12. I wasn't offended. I genuinely wanted to know what your point was. I'm sorry if you took that the wrong way! No, I don't care if she sees it or not. Only time will tell if she does. I really did not put so much thought into it until now. It will not affect my life at all if I get a response or not...
  13. I didn't develop severe OCD (yes, severe. I can actually say I was diagnosed) until shortly after my grandma died when I was 12. The OCD was triggered by trauma. Sure, you could have the genes for greater likelihood of having OCD, but you're making it seem like you either 100% develop it or 100%...
  14. What's your point? I get e-mail notifications when someone comments. Also, forums are public so people looking for similar things can see the responses too.
  15. I have been clearing my throat a lot since I was 17, particularly in the morning after I brush my teeth. I still have not found out why toothpaste would irritate acid reflux. I currently use a kid's toothpaste, which helps. When I cut out dairy, the post-nasal drip went away except for when I eat...
