sebailes26 posted a topic in Post Diagnosis, Recovery & Treatment of Celiac DiseaseHi everyone!! So right now I’m testing out a gluten free diet to see if I have a gluten intolerance. My symptoms: extreme bruising (as in I have 150 bruises on my legs right now), weight loss and inability to gain it back, and hair falling out. I have a few other random things (stomach aches but not after specific foods, fatigue, etc), but I’m not sure if they’re even gluten related or not. Anyway, how long will I need to try this diet until I start noticing some changes? I’ve been doing it for about five days now. I know my symptoms will be harder to tell change in them versus if I was having stomach pain. I really want this to work, but I have no idea how long I should give it before I conclude if gluten is the problem or not. Because I mean, bruises take a while to heal. I don’t know how to measure if those symptoms are getting better! Any advice would be very appreciated because I am overwhelmed!!!
I have had this issue since childhood and I am now in my fifties. Yes I have been tested for bone marrow diseases and have come up negative. I get these little spots under the areas of skin where it is thin and soft. It happens when it is hot and I have been exposed to gluten. They do clear rapidly. Does any one else experience this?
Hi, I've struggled with GI issues (IBS, GERD) and poly-cystic ovarian syndrome for the last 5-6 years (I am 26). My reflux has been continually getting worse and my doctor was concerned since I take high doses of Zantac. They referred me to specialty clinic for endoscopy. During my EGD doctor noticed lots of inflammation and he left a note stating that my villi in small intestine were flat. Only post op notes were to wait for the biopsy results of duodenum and along stomach; and to try another med. I've been having a lot of fatigue and easy bruising the last few months on top of worsening reflux. I've been primary surviving on chicken, bread, carrots...but it wasn't helping like it normally seemed to. Last week I started having joint pain that moves and comes/goes, as well as tingling in my hands and feet. After the tingling/joint pain started I stopped eating gluten/complex carbs because I thought maybe it was related to blood sugar; reflux is a little better but joint pain is not. Does this sound familiar to anyone? I had some blood work done for vitamins/minerals and liver function. Nurse over phone said it seems within normal limits; but that my liver function was on the lowest end of normal (AST =10). I have an appointment with my regular doctor tomorrow; as of Friday they didn't have my results but they wanted to follow up on joint pain/tingling.
