      It's hard, very hard to give up foods we love.
      My Thanksgiving dinner was:
      Turkey, green beans and squash,
      My sister made a crustless pumpkin pie
      for me.
      However, I'm just glad its not something a
      lot worse. Like my sister has macular degeneration
      and is legely blind. It's heart breaking to watch her
      try to read with a magnifing glass.
      So as difficult as it is :Count Your Blessings

      It was a Dr. Klien. My pcp refered me to him for evaluation--
      she thinks I should have a colonoscopsy (sp).
      He walked into the room with the referal, my medical records
      and a new patient quiz I filled out and said " Why are you here? HUH?
      I explained my symptoms etc. Thats when he told me I could'nt be
      GS. I corrected him on that point. Then to top it all off he asked me
      "Well, what do you expect us to do for you?"
      I told him "Nothing, I'll just do the GFD for now and consult with my pcp.

      I've been gluten-free for about a month now with some improvement in symptoms.
      There's a lot to learn about this new lifrstyle.

      There are support groups here in Albq. Just type Celiac Support Groups in
      Albq. in your browser to get a list. I don't belong to a group yet. I've just been
      dx with gluten sensitivity and am still trying to started on the GFD.
      As for a GI-well I haven't found one yet that seems to know much about
      Celiac Disease. The last one I saw told me flat out that if I don't have chronic
      D I don't I'm not gluten sensitve.

      Most Accurate Test
      What is the most accurate test for celiac? I've read that the blood
      test is'nt as accurate as the stool test.
      I've had IBS for 17 years now and getting worse! I think I may have celiac or
      gulten senstive. My doctor wants me to try IBS meds. I have tried them at the beggining
      of my tummy trouble-they did'nt help.
      I'm considering going on my own and ordering either York or Entrolab.
      Any advice?

      Vision And Celiac
      I just read on another forum that a person
      gave up wheat and had an improvement in her
      Has there been any research on the relation of
      gluten and vision?
      This is important to me as I have 2 sisters with
      macular degeneration. If there is a relation I want
      to send them the info.

      Are These Symptoms Of Cd
      My sister can not gain weight.I think she may have
      celiac disease. She gets weak,dizzy spells. I'm really
      worried about her. Shes been to a GI-had tests for ulsers
      etc. but not for celiac disease. Do these symptoms sound like celiac disease.

      For those of us that are not improving on the gluten-free diet I
      recomend the Specific Carboydrate Diet. It excludes
      starches and sugars. It is strict.It works!!MB

    10. baldridgem added a post in a topic Getting Celiac At A Later Age   

      I think many of us have celiac loong before we are dx.
      I was 59 before I started having severe adominal pain
      and was dx as IBS. I'm 74 now. Its been 15 years trying to
      figure out what I can or cannot eat. It's a relief knowing its mostely gluten
      and maybe milk products. I'm having more tests done, I'll konw in a few weeks

      I have been on SCD for 2 years now. I have IBS and celiac. It does work
      I've had a lot of up and downs-trying to figure out what I can and can't eat.
      I can't eat some of the legal foods on the diet-its trial and error. MaaryB
