      I have not. I'll talk to my doctor about it
    • High Positive Test Results - Your thoughts please...
      With blood results like these, your husband most definitely has Celiac Disease.  The biopsy is just to check to see how much damage.  Keep in mind that even with high, high test scores like these, damage can still be patchy. Although I would be very surprised if they didn't find enough with numbers like these!  Thank goodness he was able to have a definitive diagnosis and reason for his symptoms!  Good luck!
    • I have kidney stones...spent last night at the ER
      Hi ArtG, It's good to hear back from you!   That's so odd and interesting...I wonder what happened to the stones?   I've completed all of my testing...xray, bloodwork, 24 hour urine collection.   I go back to see the urologist on Monday.  At the end of my 24 hour collection I did pass a small stone.  About 1.5x1.  I did collect it, took it to the dr and they sent it in for analysis.   I got a copy of the urinalysis and nothing really stood out.  My calcium, oxalate and ph were all just a little high...but that's it. Did he recommend any dietary changes for you? I'm glad you're doing well and am hoping for no more stones for us!
    • Weird Reaction
      Hi All. I've been Gluten Free for the last 12-13 months and love it. I'm 51 and in good condition health wise according to my tests. I train with weights and decided to try "Vitargo" which is a post workout carbohydrate drink made out of special kind of Barley. It says Gluten Free on the label and I have had it before becoming Gluten Free but I think this time it has done a real number on me. Saturday morning I had a serving after a workout then had diarreah, nausea, and a very unsettled, restless feeling but this didn't start for at least 6 hours after drinking it. Constant diarreah after everything I ate.  Three horrible days past and I got my appetite back and started feeling better again. I didn't even think of the Vitargo as being the culprit. It said "Gluten Free" !!!!!!!! Wednesday had a workout, had another serving and again, 6 or so hours later I felt a real weird type of feeling that came from nowhere. Nausea, diarreah, restless and a shaky, trembling type feeling through my arms and shoulders which is quite scarey. My wife listened to my heart which was going quite fast so off to the hospital we go. It was then she read on the Vitargo website that it was gluten tested to be below 20ppm...I think that's the term they used. I put 2 and 2 together and felt better mentally because I thought that had to be it. They checked my heart and blood pressure and all was good. Friday morning now and I've had no appetite, feeling nausea and that shaky feeling and a feeling of dread or doom and gloom, depressed (not sure how to describe it properly) Very unsettled and can't relax. Just lost that spring in my step. Sometimes it's a little hard getting a full breath but I'm not short of breath...if that makes sense. This reaction happened a few months ago to but not with the Vitargo (can't remember the circumstances then) so my question... Has anybody else had reactions like this after unknowingly eating gluten or is it a normal reaction to eating gluten after not eating it for some time or should I be looking at another cause for this? It's really bothering me a lot. Many thanks for your replies. Rich

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
