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...

An Unmistakeable Journey > Spiced Nuts

Posted Rowena 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....

Lexi's Blog > I Need To Vent.

Posted lexibrowning 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...

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...

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...

ghfphd's allergy blog > Itching To Stop

Posted ghfphd on 10 December 2011 - 05:47 AM

:( :(  I thought that the itching in my hands, stomach area, feet and toes was due to some rare, unmanageable peripheral neural damage disease.  That's what my allopath doc says.

I'm learning slowly the limits to allopathic medicine:  if the trouble is not a pathogen or some huge...

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...
