Causing All My Problems
I went to a holistic doctor, to run tests to see what sensitivities I might have. The test results showed I had 31 units of fecal- Anti-gliadin IgA. The normal range is less than 10 units.
Also, in the test results, I found out I have a sensitivity to casein, as well as soy, and chicken egg. Well, I am currently on medication for both Hypothyroidism, and Bipolar Disorder.
It turns out that both these diseases are directly related to my food sensitivities. It was also discovered that I have the Gene HLA-DQB1*0201, (Also known as HLA DQ2). I have the Celiac gene and the Non-Celiac gene that predisposes me to have Gluten Sensitivity.
My brother suffers from Epilepsy, so he most likely also has the Gluten Intolerance. It is amazing to me that gluten, a protein that is present in our food, can affect our Neurology.
What really upsets me is how our Healthcare System failed me, and how the doctors just treat the symptoms with medication instead of finding the source of the chemical imbalance.
I suffer from headaches and mood swings. Tomorrow I will complete a 24 hour Adrenal Saliva test. The test kit says I have to have like two pieces of gluten containing bread before my noon sample is collected, so after that I will start my new gluten free diet. I desperately need my immune system to get back to normal.
