NotMollyRingwald's Blog > Dear Future Amy

Posted NotMollyRingwald 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 jebby 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...

The Patient Celiac > Mast Cell Activation Syndrome Madness....

Posted jebby on 05 January 2014 - 08:21 PM

At this time last year I had never heard of mast cell activation syndrome (MCAS) and the first time that I heard the name I thought that it was a “made up” disease. Since then I have come to realize that it is a real diagnosis and I have learned a ton about it, including the following:

MCAS is a newly recognized disease of the innate immune system (our b...

1desperateladysaved's Blog > Thanksgiving Went Well

Posted 1desperateladysaved 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 1desperateladysaved 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...

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...

The Patient Celiac > Yes, It Is "safe" To Raise Non Celiac Kids Gluten Free

Posted jebby on 04 February 2013 - 09:39 PM

I’ve realized that I have not written for almost a week and I think I am okay with this. When I started this blog two months ago, I anticipated being able to post about once a week, so I think I am on track. Between working full-time, running, and trying to squeeze in some sleep, the main reason  that I have not had time is that I have four small...

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 > Celiac Disease And Pregnancy

Posted jebby on 19 January 2013 - 09:20 PM

Although I am pretty sure that I had Celiac Disease for more than two decades before my diagnosis, I was not diagnosed until after my 3rd child was born. Looking back, my diet during my first 3 pregnancies was a gluten-filled nightmare. I am actually glad that I have no idea how sky-high my celiac antibodies probably were while I was pregnant with my oldest...

A Celiac's Journal > Midol Products... Gluten-Free?

Posted BBrien on 24 July 2012 - 05:53 PM

I'm thinking not.

Not only an I a celiac but I'm also lactose intolerant. It is ridiculous how sick I get when I have dairy. It feels as if I drank rotten milk or have food poisoning.

So, every time that I get my period, I get that feeling and I always take Midol with no help. If anything, it makes me even more sick to the point where I'm...

Mike Menkes' Blog > We Are All Celiac

Posted Mike Menkes 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...

The Liberated Kitchen, redux > Going 100% Gluten-Free

Posted domesticactivist on 10 June 2011 - 06:49 AM

Going gluten-free is harder than it looks. The pesky stuff is everywhere! Many people who are intolerant or have a wheat allergy can get away with not really worrying about trace amounts of contamination. But if you are going gluten-free because of an autoimmune problem like celiac disease, it's...

The Patient Celiac > Gluten-Related Neurologic Symptoms In Children

Posted jebby on 16 May 2014 - 03:44 PM

There is a well-established relationship between celiac disease (and non-celiac gluten sensitivity) and the development of neurologic problems in adults. According to Dr. Marios Hadjivassiliou, a neurologist in the UK who is one of the world’s experts in this area, up to 50% of adults with newly diagnosed celiac disease have signs or symptoms of neurologi...
