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...

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

Posted KCG91 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...

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...

Gluten Challenge > Week 7

Posted Porcelina on 28 November 2013 - 06:18 PM

Constant aches and pains. I always have a stomach ache, my knees hurt, I want to go to bed by 8pm and I'm taking ibuprofens a few times a week to help my headaches. On top of that, at week 5, I started to develop this facial rash that is intensely itchy on my jaw bone and is red and blotchy on my whole cheek area. It almost looks like psoriasis. Can DH a...

Ohmyword's Blog > Hmmm Weepy Eyes To! Really? Is There No End To This!?

Posted Ohmyword on 21 April 2013 - 06:15 AM

21st April  - So then, let me add weepy eyes to my seemingly neverending list of symptoms - previously endured with barely a second thought! - everything it seems, can be linked back to gluten. I look terrible the dark circles under my eyes seem to be darker than ever, although headache and heartburn not as bad. But head fog back cant keep simple things i...

The Patient Celiac > Non Celiac Gluten Sensitivity

Posted jebby on 11 February 2013 - 05:58 PM

Yes, this is a real diagnosis, and it effects between 6 to 8% of our population, or approximately 18 million people. Many doctors and patients are unaware that it exists. Most of the papers on this topic have only been published in the last 2-3 years. The British Medical Journal published a case study and review of gluten sensitivity in their November 30,...

The Patient Celiac > Eosinophilic Esophagitis And Celiac Disease

Posted jebby 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...

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...

Skylark's Blog > Pot Roast Recipe

Posted Skylark 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...

moosemalibu's Blog > Colonoscopy

Posted moosemalibu on 14 October 2014 - 03:13 PM

Well... my diarrhea has continued and not improved despite resolution of most of my other celiac symtoms. I'm going in to be tested for microscopic colitis next month. I just want to have a normal phucking bowel movement. It's been soo long I don't even remember what one looks or feels like! Hoping for answers.
