Hi Cyclinglady, good idea. I will definitely look into it but I do not think it will be possible since I have never heard of compounding pharmacies here. I have to figure out something. I will definitely ask. I really need some good news. I just feel it is one thing after another and of course I need to keep fighting and figure this out. Even this doctor today told me I should not be using forum and internet in general to try to figure things out. Thanks to this forum, I figured out about so many things that no doctor has mentioned to me. None of us imagined having to deal with celiac and other issues. I am really tired of dealing with all of this. While my friends are planning their weddings and having kids, I am hoping not to be diagnosed with other AIs. I am genuinely happy for them and take time to pick perfect presents for them but later I wonder if I will ever get to experience any of this. This has been on my mind even more after this appointment today and the only thing that I can even focus on (if I have energy and feel somewhat ok) is trying to figure out what can help me feel better. I really think that only people on this forum understand what I am going through.
At our local Steak and Shakes the fries our cooked in the same oil as the bread products. Some of the cooks do not use separate spatulas when flipping burgers and buns. If you go sat at the counter than decide if the risk is safe.
Hi All, After about 9 years of issues i final decided to go to the doctor and get a celiac panel done. I am not sure how to interpret the results so any insight would be appreciated, also as a side note my calcium is pretty low at 18: Endomysial Antibody IgANegative Immunoglobulin A, Qn, Serum259mg/dL t-Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA<2U/mL
I was just coming back to say that I think I have ulcers or something, because my nausea is still there, but my mouth feels better. I'm eating bread at dinner every day until my appointment, but trying to cut the gluten containing products out of my other meals. I wonder if I have a wheat allergy, because I get the itchy inner ears and lips and mouth symptoms when I eat breads or pasta. I'm going to get the testing done no matter what, but I'm starting to lean away from celiac disease. My appointment is October 21, I'm going to try not to think about anything too much until then.
