Re: Can I rant a little?
yes its real alright,if someone feeds me gluten by accident or is it on purpose,I have such violent trots all day and can not leave the house for a day or so and have such pains i have to have hot water bottles back and front of me and go to bed or lie on the soffa....I did not want to beleive i had it either vecause I had had other illness of the guts too and had my large intestine all taken out so i said to the doctor i do not beleive i can have anything else wrong,however he phoned my husband and said i should be tested as he was sure i had it ,well we were about to movw house and so i said i would get tested by biopsy afer i had moved home i got thinner and thinner and was sick a lot ...but i still did not want to think it was coeliacs disease as well...although the doctor took blood test and sid it was that and it came bck positive ,any way i moved house got settled in which took about another 3 months in denial as I WASTED AWAY TO ABOUT STONE 5 LBS , husaband insisted incase i even died that i got tested well i did then and it was absolutely conclusive that I HAVE GOT FLATTENED VILLI AND IN A BAD WAYWITH VERY VERY ANAEMIC SO WELL ,i have been diagnosed and was warned if i did not do the diet i would get cancer of the bowel so after feeling at deaths door any way it was not hard to finally accept given in and do the ...... diet and i have improved in weight and health quite considerably so with me it is not a choice but an evil necessity to stay well...most of us are not thrilled to be diagnosed but glad of the improvements in our general health . it is up to yourself how you decide sickness or health if you are a coeliac then you do need to do the gluten free diet .
