    New Issue No Explanation

    Perhaps you might want to look into Eosinophilic Esophagitis. Those food globs that are from previous meals might have been stuck in your esophagus. Trying to lie down causes painful GERD like feeling , but definately small "burp" vomitting...
  2. I was totally bored tonight and decided to stop by. I went through my Daughter's Celiac diagnoses at 16 months old and her Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EOE) when she was 6 years old. She is now 15. My advice... Get to a gastro. doc...
  3. Have you seen pictures of undernourished alcoholics (beer belly), starving children, end stage chronic illness? All have large protruding bellies. The body does try and hold on to all nutrients and tries to protect vital internal organs...
  4. You were on a gluten free diet for the blood draw - so it is useless. If you are doing a good thorough job eating gluten free it should be negative. Your positive gut damage is proof of Celiac. It has been said Celiacs need about 2 years...
  5. Could be symptoms of gallbladder issues. What tests were done to rule out gallbladder issues? I had my gallbladder taken out a few years back and felt so much better after. I tell you don't fear having a surgery that is going to make...

    Could it be like a spouse/life partner saying, "We are pregnant."? As a concept you are a united team. Less chance of cross-contamination by meaning gluten is not allowed at this table.
  7. I'm glad you have answers for the pain and know have the information to get and stay healthy! Let's try and stay positive here. (If you knew about the current implosion of troubles that have crushed my spirit this week and left me...
  8. Many things could have changed in 1.5 years for the tests. I think you are on the right track going gluten free as I have found numerous reports gluten free helps for auto-immune illnesses. You have been feeling better, and a gluten challenge...
  9. Go back to the doctor's, there is a chance you missed something else. Don't make any diet changes, as diet may determine other food intolerances or immune reactions. Sorry about the constipation. We have dealt with that. Or best...
  10. I don't put full trust in the genetic testing. There may be a language barrier to how you are explaining Celiac. It is an auto immune disease~ the body's immune system attacks and destroys normal healthy tissue of the small intestine...
  11. Genetic testing is not as accurate as whatever percentage you were told. My daughter tested positive for both DQ2 and DQ8. My genetic test taken through a different doctor's office was negative. As the lab tech seemed so flustered...
  12. You are right to be concerned with the low growth rate. There are any number of illnesses/disease that can start from these symptoms. food sensitivities, parasite infection, H. Ployri., congenital defect, hernia, Celiac, eosinophilic...
  13. You have to eat gluten during the testing. Anxiety is a symptom, most likely from vitamin B 12 deficiency. Changing your diet seems overwhelming at first. There are so many products on the market now and the general population...
  14. To go for a Celiac diagnoses she has to eat gluten. If she is still having problems, like a gluten reaction when she hasn't had gluten that you are aware of- get the endoscopy. She may have another disease/ disorder that may have...
