NotMollyRingwald's Blog > Dear Future Amy

Posted on 29 May 2013 - 05:49 PM

Dear Future Amy,

I know you are doubting your intolerance/sensitivity to gluten. I'm sure, now that time has gone on, you're starting to doubt the trouble it has caused you. You have forgotten how very miserable your gluten challenge was, and have started allowing the if's and the but's and the maybe's into your mind. So, I'm writing to you now, to remi...

The Patient Celiac > The Effects Of Gluten On The Brain And Nervous System

Posted on 23 January 2013 - 08:35 PM

Most of the articles about gluten and celiac disease I’ve came across in the media have focused on symptoms related to digestion, such as abdominal pain and bloating after eating gluten, and damage to the small intestine. The bulk of the gluten-related discussions on the celiac forums I’ve perused concern questions and answers regarding the diagnosis of...

badcasper's Blog > 3 Weeks And Still Trying For 100% Gluten-Free

Posted on 01 March 2015 - 10:34 AM

I never really knew what was wrong with me, but I always knew I didn't like a lot of foods. Some I didn't like because I had strange reactions to them. I have not been diagnosed but the change in my diet is amazing. I just changed my vitamins and wow, its like they work. My aches and pains have improved. my energy level is back to normal. Im trying very h...

KCG91's Blog > Three Months In - Blood Test Results

Posted on 31 January 2014 - 02:26 AM

So I collected my blood test results after three months gluten free. When I was diagnosed my ttg IgA was >128u/ml, with 'normal' being <7. Today it is at 22u/ml! Poor doc was a bit confused because for many people this would be high, but obviously for me it's a massive improvement. I wasn't expecting it to be that good, as I live between three non...

1desperateladysaved's Blog > Thanksgiving Went Well

Posted on 29 November 2013 - 06:38 AM

This year a doctor told me not to eat anywhere but home. My body is acting super-sensitive and I didn't want to rock the boat. I alerted my sister, the hostess, and my brother that I would be unable to eat at the gathering, but would eat on the way there. On the way there I enjoyed my very filling rice and beef casserole. I had planned to do a regular...

1desperateladysaved's Blog > My Friend: Pain!

Posted on 17 October 2013 - 06:16 PM

Before I diagnosis, I did not feel celiac pain. I would notice my tummy bloating, my legs swelling, and have a pregnant looking belly. I had extreme fatigue and foggy mind, but didn't realize those until it went away one day. I trudged on with these mysterious symptoms that were "All in my head." Wondering in my dreamy state if something possibly was wron...

Lexi's Blog > I Need To Vent.

Posted on 18 August 2013 - 07:15 PM

I think it's really sad, and I'm sure a lot of you would agree, that I am so elated to go back to college because I know people understand my needs there. This summer has been such a struggle being at home because my family just doesn't get it. I'm not sure they ever will. After being relatively gluten-free for over a year now I realize how much I was t...

1desperateladysaved's Blog > Do I Hide It Well, Or What? 30 Years Of Untreated Celiac: Piece Of Cake?

Posted on 25 February 2013 - 06:19 AM

Yesterday, my family went to a prayer meeting for a friend with vasculitis, an Auto Immune disease.  He has had very obvious problems and was hospitalized twice and once it was for a very long time.  The prayer meeting was patterned after James 5.  (Bible)After arriving home, my husband talked with the children if they thought a prayer meeting like that i...

Next week will be my 4th month gluten free and I have only recently discovered how badly my body reacts to any cross contamination.

The Patient Celiac > Eosinophilic Esophagitis And Celiac Disease

Posted on 20 January 2013 - 04:51 PM

Eosinophilic Esophagitis, also known as “EE,” is a gastrointestinal disorder that, like Celiac Disease, seems to be increasing in frequency of diagnosis. I first heard of EE when I was in my pediatric residency. I worked with a Pediatric GI specialist who seemed to diagnose all of his infant patients with gastroesophageal reflux (GERD) with EE. While I...

Mike Menkes' Blog > We Are All Celiac

Posted on 27 January 2012 - 11:20 AM

Our bodies contain the same DNA as our ancestors from 6-10,000 years ago. Grains were introduced ~ 5-6,000 years ago. Hybridization has altered grains such as wheat, rye, spelt, barley. We do not have the DNA to break these grains down in our intestinal tracts.

Europeans discovered that when they used a 'sour' starter culture, which broke down the...

Skylark's Blog > Pot Roast Recipe

Posted on 22 January 2012 - 02:07 PM

My pot roast:

I don't like adding a bunch of liquid so I choose a crockpot where the meat fits snugly.  I usually use my 3-quart crockpot because I try to get a smallish chuck roast.  Brown the meat in a skillet if you have time.  Put the roast in the crockpot and pour in a little red wine so it comes to the top of the roast.  If the roast fits snugly...

Gluten Free Bread Blog > Gluten Free Weight Loss Breads

Posted on 01 August 2011 - 06:23 PM

I am so happy to have to started my blog on Celiac.com. Since I have started my gluten free diet one of the most important things is to find a bread that is not filled with starch and white rice. This was so important for me so that I did not gain weight when making the complete change to be gluten free.

THe problem with so many breads today is they are...

The Patient Celiac > Gluten Intolerance Can Actually Be Subclinical Celiac Disease

Posted on 30 April 2014 - 10:12 AM

I think most of us have met people who have symptoms of celiac disease, but when tested, are told that their celiac antibody blood tests and biopsy results are negative (normal). Some of these people are labeled “gluten intolerant” or “gluten sensitive” by their doctors, others are told they may have “early” celiac disease, or “pre” celiac disease, and t...
