Can you please tell me which Celiac tests are mandatory, besides the dreaded biopsy?
According to this book the doctor suggest these ones as well :
1-Cyrex array 3
2- Cyrex array 4 (he sites this as optional)
I know that the standard blood test run by my GP will be very limiting.
So, I probably need a referral to a hospital in order to get the entire panel done.
Hopefully, the Provincial health insurance will cover them at the hospital.
I remember as a child I has frequent nose bleeds, also stress seemed to exacerbate them.
I had headaches since age 11(still have mild ones every day, tinnutis since 13 and quasi fibro pain since age 13 as well.
Hello fellow parents.
I have not been here in a while.
My daughter has lactose intolerance as well as gluten allergy and / or gluten sensitivity and very possibly celiac disease.
She drinks almond milk.
We try very hard to not eat glutened food because she has the horrific stomach aches , vomiting, diarrhea.
After such episodes she is grey in pallor, sweaty and exhausted and she almost passes out (must sleep) for hours.
She has infrequently the neuropathy in her hands and arms.
Also , she used to hear whispering, or what she claimed to be whispering.
(She is now in her late teens, and is claiming the whispering was in fact , our neighbours talking.
So for me, it is hard to judge what did actually hear [that I am slightly hard of hearing, does not help in this situation] ... incidentally, the whispering occurred only in our home.)
Ok so back to the core of my asking for help.
Our family doctor claims that for her to show up celiac positive (and by default wheat allergic),
she dos not need to gluten herself at all.
Ditto for the lactose intolerance test.
He is saying to do nothing and just show up for the blood draw(s).
From the posts I have read , a person has to be glutening themselves for at least 3 weeks if not 8 or more.
Regarding the lactose intolerance, I am not sure, I need to do more research.
If anyone can shed some light on this, I would be immensely grateful.
I am very eager to bake with this machine some gluten-free breads so finally we can have a sandwich in our house !!
However the provided recipes have me stumped as they are ALL designed for gluten baking.
I have various gluten-free flours bought, also xanthan gum etc, so i am fairly ready to bake
I know as a last resort i can just hand bake the loaves, but having some health issues, the ease of this machiene would really be a boon!
I appreciate any advcie hints, recipes and tips, thank you in advance.
