Avatar f tn Has any one had success with a gluten free casine free diet? We are about to try it under the support from an integrated medical doctor and dietitian. Does any one have any good result stories or otherwise?
139792 tn?1498589250 But does a gluten-free lifestyle automatically mean a smaller waistline? Experts say it depends on what gluten-free foods you eat. Brown says that if a person goes on a gluten-free diet, giving up all pasta, packaged foods, cereal, desserts, bread and thickening agents such as gravy, and opts instead to consume more fruits, vegetables, lean meats, fish and low-fat dairy products, then, yes, weight loss could result.
551343 tn?1506834118 I have written to a few manufacturers who do vegetarian foods and not one offer gluten free i mean how mad is that. I shall have a look at the links later this computer doesnt work well with youtube. big hugs guys.
Avatar n tn fish, fruit, nuts, some meat, healthy fats/oils, lots of veggies. kefir. gluten free, usually grain free. I have good relationships, a great boyfriend, and family. though i often still become depressed now and then. i become so fatigued, and i lay in bed until the afternoon with pain, heart palpitations, a very sore throat, and very low motivation most days. I'm expected to look for work, so I do.
Avatar f tn i also read that a diet free or dairy and gluten , no processed foods, MSG etc is supposed to help calm down the pain receptors.. http://hepatitiscnewdrugresearch.com/prevalence-of-fibromyalgia-among-patients-with-chronic-hepatitis-c.html scroll halfway down http://www.myalgia.com/Bennett%20Mayo%20article.pdf so the above article was in 1999… how is it that not a single doctor in 3.
Avatar f tn I have stopped eating bread but have not started a strict gluten free diet. Im scared to eat as I have no clue why foods make me soo nautious and uncomfortable. Have I been misdiagnosed with fibromyalgia as celiacs can cause alike symptoms (joint pain)? I think my dad may have had it celiacs but he has passed. I am waiting for an appointment for a endoscopy which im scared of I hope they put me too sleep.
209591 tn?1267418314 Also, different countries have different labelling standards and some places, even developed countries like the UK, can label certain items as gluten-free where other countries do not consider them to be gluten-free. Be aware as well that some of your medications may be gluten-contaminated. You'll either have to consult with your pharmacist or call the companies directly to be sure. If you go the diet route, you should know that most doctors don't consider this definitive of Celiac Disease.
Avatar f tn I accidentally discovered 2 yrs ago (after going on a Daniel fast) that becoming gluten free DRASTICALLY improved my FMS. The level of pain has been reduced significantly. I was having migraines 5 out of 7 days, and now I'm having them only occasionally, maybe once in 3 months. I would recommend anyone to give this a try. I was on the Daniel fast for 21 days, but I saw the improvement within 14 days, so giving it a try for just 2 weeks would be well worth it.
Avatar m tn Hey me_just34. Have you been diagnosed with IBS? I would suggest you look into the SCD program and also into GAPS. Just do a search for these. Your symptoms are not typical of fibromyalgia, however, one condition which encompasses most of the above symptoms is low thyroid function. Low thyroid function, often, is the underlying condition, which needs to be ruled out in many unresolved cases, where a diagnosis has not been given, or when the symptoms are persistent.
Avatar f tn htm My husband and boys all deal with autism spectrum disorder issues. We decided to try a gluten-free, cassein-free (GFCF) diet to see if it helped any of us. I think it helps the guys somewhat but REALLY helps my Fibromyalgia. It is a difficult diet to follow but you might be amazed at how much better you feel. I have come up with some of my own recipes so I don't have to buy the expensive GFCF foods. It is definitely worth trying for at least a few months to see if it helps you.
280418 tn?1306329510 i remember our ped GI telling me that the gluten free diet might help me with my fibromyalgia---which i am assuming i sprobably lyme disease. however, i have never gone totally gluten free. i just thought i'd let you know that gluten free really isn't that hard to do. it can be inconvenient at times, but we have been able to reproduce almost everything we ate before diagnosis.
1852058 tn?1320162300 Stop eating gluten and sugars, eat only fresh foods, no processed foods. (immune system does not like processed foods or added chemicals/steroids) 6 Take probiotics. Gut is the first line of immune system. Bad bacteria and funi have been proliferating. Need to fight back with good probiotics such as 5 Lac and Saccromides Boulardi. 7 Start taking nutracells. You can get them online. I have a list that my Dr (Very prominent ILADS and ID Dr) gave me to support my immune system.
Avatar f tn This explains why it is critical to eliminate gluten completely from your diet if you have AITD. There’s no “80/20″ rule when it comes to gluten. Being “mostly” gluten-free isn’t going to cut it. If you’re gluten intolerant, you have to be 100% gluten-free to prevent immune destruction of your thyroid.
1550026 tn?1299339682 I see all the foods that we cant eat on a gluten free diet, how about the foods we can eat? You listed all sorts of things you cant eat, and when I think of eating those are all the foods I can think of, so whats left? can you give some examples of days of your menu?
10641686 tn?1411758780 Cut out all junk and processed foods, cakes, biscuits. If your bowels can't take dairy products or gluten, find substitutes for these like gluten free products, soya or coconut milk, soya or sunflower spreads like Pure. Drink plenty of fluids and especially water. Try to relax and unwind by having a warm soothing bath with your favourite oils. Take pain relief medications as prescribed on the packet for your aches and pains.
Avatar f tn all they do is check to see if ur trigger points hurt when they push on them there are 18 and i have had fm for about 19 years and ur whole body hurts i know i did the same thing about the systems i thought it was all in my head to but it just kept on getting worse go see ur pcp and they can check for you also. take care talk soon let me know. any more wuestion i will be here for u.
Avatar f tn If you have the functional bowel disorder that usually goes with MS, you will probably want to go gluten free and dairy free. If you have migraines with the MS, as I know many do, you will want to avoid foods that cause the build up of Tyramine. Tyramine Intolerance includes gluten intolerance, too, by the way. If your neurologist didn't mention this, he should have. Low carb and low glycemic should help, too, with the parasthesia.
Avatar m tn Hello, Many of the symptoms you described could be Fibromyalgia, but I am curious to know what type of doctor you are seeing in May. Also can you describe the popping sound you are hearing in your arm? Which part of your arm are you hearing the sound?

Avatar f tn Since my cholesterol is low and my weight is fine, I do not avoid real foods like eggs or butter, though I do make a point of refusing margarine and other overly processed foods. This has changed a bit recently because I have strong sugar cravings when I am fatigued, so I do splurge on that a bit, plus some caffeine, that I used to do just fine without. It feels like I cannot start a day of work without a Coke or a cafe mocha because I wake up exhausted.
Avatar f tn I personally also believe that gluten plays havoc on our thryoids and am also doing gluten free (finally). But no good results to report yet..... Was hoping it would help on the weight loss front.
Avatar f tn IF they come back negative, you will still be free to experiment with going gluten free and/or avoiding GMO foods and eating organic, but you didn't miss your chance to get tested for Celiac, because once you are off gluten, the test won't be accurate. You think you can just start eating gluten again, but then it makes you so sick you can't stay on it long enough to get tested. A shampoo that tends to help people is Nizoral. Also, look for a shampoo with castor seed oil in it.
Avatar n tn I have had this for the last few years. Last summer, I decided I needed to lose weight and, on the advice of a friend who'd lost weight,I tried avoiding wheat. I didn't go full-on gluten free, or anything. Those foods marked "gluten free" almost always have way too many ingredients from the laboratory to be healthy, in my opinion. Anyway, for four months I stopped eating breads, pasta, crackers, cereals, etc...
186166 tn?1385262982 i found a book online...called something like, "cecilia's shopping guide". it is supposed to list most all of the major grocery stores and list the products they carry that are gluten free. you can look up something...and it will tell you the brand to buy. was wondering if anyone has bought this book and does it live up to it's claim? i have still not yet had my blood work done...but after reading some...dont know whether to waste my time doing so or not.
Avatar f tn Everything else, including the ones we're told are gluten free still tested near the 40% mark. Gluten is the group of proteins and not really the name of the protein. There are two in wheat. The main one is Gliadin. I don't remember the other one. The point is that this is newer information. The video explains that gluten intolerance is the cause of autoimmune illnesses besides Celiac. Doctors operating with the outdated information don't recognize this.
Avatar n tn As a long term Hashimoto's patient and also suffering from long term gluten intolerance, I can tell you that the symptoms do decrease when on a gluten free diet. The gluten intolerance is an auto-immune response which sends out anti-bodies into the bloodstream, which of course, also go into the brain, giving rise to many Hashimoto type symptoms. With the body under attack, the immune system tries desperately to compensate, in a never ending 'chasing its tail' kind of impact.
Avatar f tn If you feel better within a couple weeks, then switch to just gluten-free (B). if within a couple weeks, your symptoms return, then go back to the grain and sugar free. (A) is relevant to yeast overgrowth and increased tartaric acid interfering with your Kreb's cycle(metabolic process) (B) is relevant to gluten intolerance/sensitivity/celiacs. Note, you must familiarize yourself with all the foods that contain gluten, should you indeed be gluten intolerant or sensitive.
Avatar f tn 1. Gluten free and dairy free diet as a test for a few weeks. Try if possible for a carb free diet but please pay attention to the foods that contain wheat or gluten that it is not obvious! It will surprise you that there are numerous food products containing wheat or gluten and most people do not know it! Read all the labels and if eating out simply ask the staff about it. 2. Do Dr. Barnes Basal Temperature test.

443434 tn?1255894833 For optimal health, resolution of symptoms (if you have them), and prevention of small intestinal damage and malnutrition, osteoporosis, and damage to other tissues (like nerves, brain, joints, muscles, thyroid, pancreas, other glands, skin, liver, spleen, among others), it is recommended that you follow a strict and permanent gluten free diet. As gluten sensitivity is a genetic syndrome, you may want to have your relatives screened as well.
