Thank you for joining us for our 2nd Cabral HouseCall of the weekend! I’m looking forward to sharing with you some of our community’s questions that have come in over the past few weeks… Let’s get started! Sarina: Hello there. Im in Adelaide Australia. I have a 8 month old baby who was born naturally, never had antibiotics or any vaccinations, fully breastfed yet she has food sensitivities and allergies. We have found she is sensitive to salicylates and bananas and allergic to cow and goat milk and im not sure about eggs or peanuts but too scared to give them. How can this have happened? What do you think can be done to help reverse this? She has been on gut infant pro probiotics and only recently started with just thrive spore probiotics. She is also on cod liver oil. Still being breastfed and on a very low salicylate diet. I am healing my gut with L glutamine, glycine and emu oil. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Also she did have eczema too but this has all gone from the changes we have made but her food sensitivities have not changed. Thanks Kierian: is it possible to test for herpes virus after its gone dormant? Patrick: Hi dr Cabral still doing great since you answered my last question . I’m still getting in about 3 podcast a day and enjoy everyone of them, my question is about the mumps i live in Philadelphia and my nephew goes to temple college where right now there are 90 cases of the mumps . I wanted to know anout any information you know of that could be helpful to him so he doesn’t catch it and what someone can do if they do get it . Thanks so much you are the best. Jessica: Hi Dr. Cabral, love Your podcast and listen everyday! I feel like I have always had a faster metabolism and I’m hungry every few hours. I will eat dinner around 6 or so and try to go to bed around 9. However I’m always hungry right before bed and if that’s the case I can’t fall asleep or I wake up in the middle of the night starving. I’ve always just had a bowl of cereal, lately healthier cereal and unsweetened almond milk. I know it’s not healthy to eat right before bed but is this normal? Is there anything you would suggest that’s healthier than cereal? Thank you again! James: Hi Doc! I have multiple food intolerances and when I eat certain foods I get a pain in the side of my stomach, mostly on the left side of the belly button and occainsially on the right. It is like a dull lingering pain although before I cut out gluten and dairy it was a lot worse, i actually went to the hospital once because of the pain. My freind gets the exact same pain too and I was wondering if you knew the mechanics behind it as in what is happening specifically that me and my freind get a pain in the exact same place? Is it a specific organ that is being enflammed or is it the yeast/bacteria feeding in that position or something else? Just curious as to why it’s in the exact same place (slightly above the belly button about and inch or two to the left) all the time for me, my freind and others I have spoken to. Thanks a lot Doc!! Love the info x Karina: Hi, Dr. Cabral! My husband is a Type 1 diabetic. I was wondering what your overall approach was to managing Type 1 diabetes? His doctors have always told him to eat “normally” and to just pump insulin for however many carbohydrates he eats. When he gets a low blood sugar, I have organic date bars and bananas on hand (better than the processed bars and candy he used to use for lows). Jeanette: Hi There, I wish to firstly thank you for the amazing podcasts you provide each and every day. I would like to ask your thoughts and possible research into hyperbaric therapy for chronic pain? And in particular back pain which has been ongoing for 8 years.

Celiac Disease & Why No One Should Have Belly Pain EP071
Gluten Free RN
Approximately 50% of ER visits are associated with abdominal pain, and the vast majority of those patients are given a diagnosis of ‘abdominal pain of an unknown origin’ and directed to come back if the condition gets worse. This is little comfort to people suffering from severe discomfort who need answers around the cause of their belly pain, not just medication to mask it temporarily. Could undiagnosed celiac disease be the source of their suffering? Today, the Gluten Free RN is diving into the issue of belly pain and undiagnosed celiac disease, discussing the expensive testing often conducted to determine the cause of abdominal discomfort—testing that rarely includes a celiac panel. She covers several of the common misdiagnoses of celiac patients as well as the incredibly high prevalence of abdominal pain in children. Nadine shares the case study of a child-patient who was misdiagnosed with appendicitis and the research published in Digestive and Liver Disease outlining the unnecessary surgical interventions endured by undiagnosed celiac patients. Listen in for the Gluten Free RN’s advice to patients with idiopathic abdominal discomfort and learn why no one should suffer from belly pain!
