My seventeen year old is sick

by Dianna Chambers
(Holbrook, NE)

I am looking for help. My 17 year old daughter is having pains where the gallbladder is located. Gone to specialist in Kearney, Ne and he can't find anything wrong. Done scopes, CatScans, drank the bad stuff and everything looks fine. We went to chiropractor, having her drink more water, and not eating flour stuff. She is feeling better finally and waiting to get tests back. Frustrated Specialist in Kearney denied seeing us because he looked at tests and didn't see us.

Any suggestions?

Just go natural

I've been wheat and gluten free for 5 months now. I lost 2 stone in weight and have more energy.

I have suffered from pain under my ribs...Gp says it could be gall bladder infection so has referred me for a scan.

I do not eat processed food or cake, bread bought substitues. If i want anything i will bake it myself, you know what goes in it then.

Good luck, eat loads of fruit, Veg, Meat and Fish. And have strong will power, its worth it.

Gallbladder pain can be a sign.
by: Anonymous

After having been diagnosed with "IBS" for 8 years I had TWO gallbladder cat scans before
I was referred to a gastroenterologist that
had trained in Boston.
2 years later my niece was having different symtoms and when my sister said they were doing ANOTHER scan of her gallbladder I strongly suggested that she get tested for CD.
I was right. Your organs can get crowded from
the bloating in your small bowl.

Hope this helps!

Helico bacter pylori
by: Anonymous

Hi

I strongly advise you to ask your doc to test your daughter for Helicobacter Pylori. This can be done by blood test, carbon urea breath test or stool antigen test. The breat and stool test are completely painfree and very simple.

Treatment can be by triple antibiotic therapy, which can be unpleasant. I have had two such treatments, both unsuccesful - i am now trying a gluten free diet, lactose free advdiet, manuka honey +20 UMF, broccoli spears, pineapple juice and mastic gum - i am begining to feel much better. I am going to stick with this reoutine for 8 weeks and then go for a retest.

Good luck

Lesley

Hi
Just like your daughter, I went through tests for years. I had heartburns, tummy pains, bloating, gascramps, low energy, infections, low immune system.........

None of the docters ever mentioned gluten intolerance. My situation has been getting worse and worse over the years and looking back I probably had this for 25 years. A friend in church asked me if I was ever tested for this ,after listening to my story.

I went online and did some reasearch and found the symptoms on gluten intolarance and it was like reading about myself.

I started with yogurt and bananas, for three days that was the only thing I had. The changes started after half a day, gas and bloating suddenly started to go away.

Today, after a little over a month, I feel light years away from where I started. There is a lot to learn about gluten free products. They are not always gluten free, because authorities let manufacurers put gluten free on their products if it's under a certain value. I read on line that you can buy corn or rice flour , but if the same mill make wheat, oat, barley or rye flour it is contaminated.

For me a tiny piece is the same as 10 loafs. I go for non-processed food or try to make it myself. I am thinking of turning to vegetables and fruit more and more. Hope you understand my Norwegian English, my spelling is not always correct.
