I have a lot of stomach problems (fatigue, bloating, hives...and 11 of the 16 mian symptoms of Celiacs). I had a stomach biopsy on Tues, so I should get results to see if I do have celiacs or not. My youngest son also has severe hives, bloated abdomen, diarrhea etc.
I am considering going Gluten Free to see if it helps (even if I dont have celiacs).
My Question: Do you eat gluten free? If so: Has it helped you? Have you gotten used to it? Did you change your childrens diet too?
(**I'm just looking for info...NOT debates. Please no attitudes ;) Thanks!!)
Why would you go gluten free is the biopsy is normal? Celiac is very easy to diagnose, they would have been able to see it on the endoscopy because it changes the look of the tissue. But they will certainly be able to confirm it with the biopsy. My daughter has many stomach problems too and so far they have not found a reason. We tried the feingold diet (no additives or food colorings) and cutting out dairy that didn't help either. I hope you get your results soon. Not knowing whats wrong is the worst.
