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...

1desperateladysaved's Blog > Tears In The Grocery Store Again.

Posted on 09 June 2015 - 06:29 PM

At the grocery store the other day, I checked out the meats. I noticed a package of turkey breast, which I use to frequently buy before I found out I had allergies to it. I absently passed on by.. I got a few feet away and stopped dead. "Wait" I told myself; I can have turkey! I turned and took a couple of steps back. Oh, right, I thought as I turned away...

The Patient Celiac > Gluten-Related Neurologic Symptoms In Children

Posted 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...

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

Posted 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...

An Unmistakeable Journey > Spiced Nuts

Posted on 30 August 2013 - 04:57 PM

For this recipe, I chose sliced almonds and chopped walnuts. However you can take your pick of nuts.

Nutmeg
Star Anise
Cinnamon Sugar
Nuts
1/2 tsp butter

Coat pan with the butter then place nuts and spices (pinch of each) in. Cook on a low heat, stirring frequently so that nuts don't burn. Nuts are done when completely coated and spices stick to nuts....

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

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

Posted 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...

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...

The Patient Celiac > Celiac Disease And Pregnancy

Posted 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 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...

To beer, with love... > It's Not You, It's Celiac

Posted on 13 June 2011 - 04:30 PM

I was hanging at the pool one gorgeous afternoon and received a call from my GP. She had some interesting test results. She was getting ready to tell me something I had figured out a while ago but had not wanted to remotely admit. You seem, for sometime I had noticed I felt bad after eating breads or pasta and my symptoms were getting increasingly worse. ...

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

Posted 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...

Posted 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.
