  1. Just  wanted to  shout  out a big  THANKS to all  veteran's  today & everyday  for serving.. Thanks  for keeping  us my husband  ,dad , father in law  &  uncle  age 19  who gave  his  life  for  us all...  
  2. Just Diagnosed

    Hello & Welcome..... I a little confused as  you said" I did  eat  something with flour" so  does  this  mean  you haven't been eating  gluten? Please  clarify.... also  has  anyone  ever  checked  your gallbladder?  Make  sure  you are consuming  gluten  for  the  endo & ask for  5-6  biopsies....Do you also  have  stomach  ulcers?
  3. I just got  a  post  stating  honey nut  & cheerios original gluten-free   are being  recalled  from a plant  in Ca.  . Please go to  to check  dates of recall....
  4. Is  there a reason you can not  get  tested  for  celiac  first?It  is always  best  to be tested  when possible....Why are  you not  eating protein? yes, it is possible to feel  very weak  when not consuming  the  correct  balance  of  food  &  enough  food..even if  you get  dx'd  celiac  one  must  maintain  a balance  of  foods (  healthy foods) so  the  gut  can heal....When a person does not  consume  enough food their  blood  sugar  can  drop.....  
  5. You are  still in the infant  stage  of  healing  celiac. some  people  have  found  they  are sensitive  to  many other  food  items... Doctors  sometimes  tell patients  to stay away from  any  type of  dairy for at  least 6 months... Dairy  is also broken down at the tips of the villi .....There  are  many  who react  to  soy products, I  for one  can not tolerate  any soy....or MSG which is another beast.... I would  suggest  eating  only  grass fed  beef, organic  chicken, wild  caught  fish,  veggies &  fruits  until  your  gut  settles  down. It  does  sound  very limited but  it  works....When  your  gut  is  better  it  will tell you what it likes & dislikes. You maybe  surprised that  things  you never thought  were an issue  are  &  things  you thought  were  nasty  are  now  okay... plus  cravings  do  go away .....good luck
  6. bartfull....... it  is so  great  to hear  your news & wonderful  that  you are having  a  well deserved  respite  form  pain...My  hubby  did  this years  ago  & worked well for  a  period  of  time but  as he  said "  any time  minutes, hours  , days   or  month's  is  worth  it  ,not being  in  unbearable  pain.... I  pray  it  lasts  & lasts  for  you....
  7. Severe Chronic Constipation

    Mineral oil  3  tbsp.  daily or  at  night  before  bedtime.... They  really  don't  use  this  method  anymore  but  it works  but  can be dangerous  if  a person throws  it  up.... I still use  it  as  years ago  that  was the protocol  for babies....
  8. one  great deed  deserves another.... when Eloise  older  sister  was killed  in an auto accident  her  parents  donated  her  heart  & organs  that  were not  damaged to another  child, well here it is four  years later  & they received  the gift  of organ transplant for Miss Eloise....Just proves  what  I believed all along  God always gives  back three fold.... so to all ; remember any good  deed  will come back to you...peace
  9. The  outside  should  read gluten-free  .. I would  call or  write  the company with  the  sku  number  on the pkg.. I probably would even  call & send  in a sample  from the  pkg  so they could  check them... Most  of all  if  it  didn't  say gluten-free  I would not  eat them.
  10. so find  another doctor
  11. again  you need to be tested  again  after the gluten trial.....
  12. I suggest you make a new apt  for a doctor  eat  gluten for  several months  & be  properly tested...
  13. It worked  for us.....we  use organic  raisins....good luck
  14. wow I really must live in the  woods--- I never  ever  seen Breyer's blast!  sounds  yummy....
