Brief Answer:
Need to avoid the allergen

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks for your query.

To treat allergy, anti-allergics are mainstay of management. You are already taking that.

Allergen should be sought for and has to be avoided. It can be one or many ranging from dust, cold, pollen to certain foods like peanuts, gluten in wheat. There are tests available to find the gluten. Drinking cleaner water will also help.

my daughter is 14 years old and she is very thin. She can eats alot when she is hungry. But she has infrequent bowel movement , sometimes like 2 to 3 days. So i try to give her fruit juice and she also likes to take a lot of vegetables but i don t see any improvement . And what i suspect is she might be having a celiac disease . What do you think doc ?

Hi, I have coeliac disease and have been adhering to a gluten free diet for about a year now since I was diagnosed. I ve always had a problem with fatigue and had attributed it to the coeliac disease; however, now that I m on a gluten free diet I had thought that might alleviate it - it hasn t. I can sleep anywhere from 5 to 15 hours a night and always have the same lethargy, despite trying different sleeping patterns, drowning myself in coffee, having B12 injections , and doing awake things like getting out and about. Is there anything you could recommend to make me less sleepy all the time?

I had stomach pains which felt like gas a week ago. I also had a lot of burping. I ate a lot of raw vegetables that night, along with a lobster roll.I also normally do not eat a lot of wheat gluten . I have had normal bowel movements all week. I have a small bruise in the area where the pains were. It still feels like stitch in that area. My stomach was hard and distended. I also have some pressure when I urinate. It does feel better than before but it is not completely gone. What could it be?

I have Epilepsy and Celiac Disease and it is very difficult to find gluten-free drugs that are generic (because of my co-pay/generic) that don t have gluten in them and when I do some places say that their distributing warehouse says it is N/A. What should I do, I have been calling around to pharmacies and finding out where they get certain drugs for my Epilepsy within a 30 to 40 mile around with not to good a results. What should I do ? I have tried YYYY@YYYY to them to get a certain drug in but yet no results.
