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...

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...

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...

An Unmistakeable Journey > Roasted Veggies - As Per Suggested By Cyclinglady

Posted on 30 August 2013 - 04:46 PM

This was a very simple recipe to make, and it doesn't bother me at all.

1 large sweet potato - chopped into large pieces
2 standard size Idaho Potatoes - chopped into large pieces
1 beet - chopped into large pieces
1 handful baby carrots (or 2 whole carrots. You can add more if you like, but I'm not a huge fan of roasted carrots)
Italian Seasoning

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 > 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...

I have always emphasized eating to be healthy and did not focus on my weight or figure.  I am somewhere around a month (?) into my rotational diet and also began pancreatic enzymes and vitamin B recently.  My weight began at around 200 6 years back.  I lost 30 lbs when I began a supplement program with my chiropractor.  My weight had become relatively...

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...

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...
