IBS/Gluten Intolerance/Celiac Disease
      12/18/10 05:18 AM

I have been diagnosed for years with IBS and never had much trouble keeping it in check until this year. I had continuous bouts of diarrhea for three months straight - went to the Gastroenterologist - took many tests including celiac and he concluded I had IBS and to continue being my own detective. Well, come to find, that I have an intolerance to gluten. I am not sure if it is celiac - since my blood work came back negative. I have heard that if you are gluten free (which I had been) prior to testing - you could get a false negative. Anyway, I proceeded to stop eating gluten foods - and lo and behold - the diarrhea has stopped, the stomach pains have gone - and I even noticed that some rashes I have had are gone too. I no longer have sinusitis as well and my dry skin is clearing up. For years - I have had these conditions and never ever thought of having an intolerance to gluten (wheat). So for those of you who have been diagnosed with IBS and are not finding relief (esepecially IBS D), why not try a gluten free diet and see how you feel?
