Hey Chloe4912 – If it makes you feel any better I’m a celiac with overgrowth and offer to help you in any way I can. This has really been a trip for me and although what you’re going through now is horrible, I’m glad you’re starting now and not waiting until later in life. If you were to go in and get a test for celiac – chances are you will be negative by blood if you’ve been off gluten for awhile. Also endoscopic biopsies are tedious at best if you’ve been off gluten unless you have pretty severe intestinal damage that they can readily see. Genetic blood relatives really puts you at an increased risk. The medical community knows so very, very little about celiac and they admit it EVERYWHERE in the literature, if not always in person. I had a heck of a time with bloodsugar when I started this diet – so if you get the shakes after eating, it’s normal. Celery – tons and tons of celery! 🙂 That’s what stabilized me. I don’t know why it works – but it was really my saving grace.
