  1. Then they biopsied? I don't think you can see on a microscopic level with a regular xray.
  2. "If antibody tests and/or symptoms suggest celiac disease, the physician needs to confirm the diagnosis by obtaining tiny pieces of tissue from the small intestine to check for damage to the villi. This is done in an endoscopic biopsy procedure. Under sedation, the physician eases a long, thin tube called an endoscope through the mouth and stomach into the small intestine, and then takes samples of the tissue using small instruments passed through the endoscope. "
  3. They can't biopsy during that - so they have not actually diagnosed you with Celiac. Maybe if you had positive blood work and genetics....

  5. I think I posted about this a few years ago. It probably wasn't the same company. but they explained that, unless you ate chunks of the plate - you might then get a little gluten. Its the way this stuff is processed and coated and glued, etc . that said, I think I would feel odd eating off a plate made from the straw from wheat if I knew about it.
  6. I am confused..... I was asking the op why they are a vegetarian. If it's not a religious reason, He or she might need to make a different choice if they need to get enough nutrition.
  7. You may have said why you don't eat meat or fish but .... maybe to be healthy you will need to add some into your diet? If you restrict yourself severely, you won't get the nutrients you need.
  8. Reacting to oats is not a " cross- reactivity". It appears that a few, maybe 8% ( can't remember the exact number) have a version of Celiac that reacts to oats. Cross- reactivity is the nonsense that a body sees coffee as gluten.
  9. When does a week end and a new count begin? Or does it roll along as a last 7 days sort of thing? I have not looked at my post count..... hmmmm
  10. I'm not giving them my gluten-free banana bread or gluten-free chocolate mint cupcakes! the double posting thing happens occasionally. Has happened to me.
  11. When I wrote my missing response, I was on my iPhone , using Chrome, as that is really the only way I can post or moderate from the iPhone. I would think it was all my internet, but slow typing and disappearing posts happen on different internets, browsers and equipment. I suppose others may have answered , but their posts have disappeared?
  12. You posted your topic twice and we responded on 1 thread. That may have been a glitch, I just hid the duplicate with no responses
  13. How did you do that? I just posted a reply and it disappears!
  14. Good posts, Notme! Lol I have a lunch tote, frozen container, etc collection. Anytime they are featured on Good Morning America at "half price/ free shipping".... I had to remove some from the freezer to put left- over turkey and bread from Thaksgiving! Ugh... I brought a very pretty and delicious salad to a funeral. I put the green stuff in, then made a line of bacon, a line of ham, a line of cheese, a line of carrots, etc. Everyone else was eating cold cut sandwiches and potato salad from the grocery. Wonder who had it worse?
  15. Or food poisoning ..... or a stomach virus....... or just " artificial peanut extract". Maybe not glutne at all.
