  1. Thank you everyone for your advice! It took me a while to get the guts up to break things off. He still managed to say that I make Celiac and my food allergies a bigger deal then they need to be and that I try to get attention from it. I should "stop caring so much"'. Crazy right? I feel like I do pretty good at staying positive about it. I don't even like to talk about it unless I have to. It's not my identity and there is more to life then eating whatever the heck you want. I know you guys know what I'm going through. It's a battle to stay healthy! I'm still sad and miss him...but hopefully there is someone out there who can understand me. Maybe I need to find a new guy with Celiac ha ha
  2. I am new to this site and also to Celiac. What I'm wondering I need to buy makeup products, soap, shaving cream, shampoo, ect. That are labeled gluten free? Could that be why I still don't feel good?
  3. Thank you for your reply! It seems like no one understands what I'm going helped At the beginning he thought I was faking my food allergies for attention. Then I think he realized how severe when I was told I could go in anaphylactic shock if I ate wheat. I've been going through testing and I think he had false hopes that everything was going to get it's worse and life-long at cure. I think I know what I need to do here. However, I'm already dealing with so many emotions due to my health, and am not in the mood for more drama. It would be nice to have someone be more supportive. I think if he was "The One" I wouldn't be on here
  4. I finally received my official Celiac diagnosis last week. I've struggled with severe wheat and dairy allergies for years, along with intolerances to eggs and soy. I also have SIBO and am going through thyroid testing. I'm in my mid-twenties so this a a blow.   I've been dating this guy for almost a year, but after i received my diagnoses he has become more impatient with my strict diet (he loves to eat everything and anything). I asked him about it tonight, and also gave him an out of our relationship if it's too much now. He didn't answer my question, but instead stated he thought I was being lazy about finding restaurants and am being too paranoid.    I dont know about everyone else, but the safest places for me to eat are Chipotle and Qdoba. The other night we went to Famous Daves...I ordered grilled chicken and broccoli and still had a reaction and have felt ill for days. My stomach swelled up and I looked 6 months pregnant. Anyways, he is tired of going to the same places all the time. I'll cook for him when I can, but sometimes I'm just too tired.    He doesn't understand, or seem to care. How do I make him get what I am going through?? If we don't stay together, how do I date other guys with all of these dang allergies?? I feel like weirdo at restaurants and bbqs, family events and date nights   I feel misunderstood and I'm tired of dealing with health problems. Any advice is appreciated! 
  5. What's Your Job

    I can very much relate to you. I went to school to study baking and pastry. I've been a pastry chef for several years now, but have recently found out i'm border line celiac. I've accepted a job for this summer at a resort as their pastry chef. I'm worried how its going to affect me....even if i don't eat my pastries. as sad as it makes me i'm wondering if i need to go back to school and study something else. i guess i'll have to see how it affects me.....good luck to you.
  6. i've struggled with a lot of food allergies over the years. my doctor told me i am not celiac according to my blood tests. my allergist told me that after doing a prick test i am allergic to wheat and may be border line celiac. he recommended i get an endoscopy done to find out for sure. i was very uncomfortable doing such an invasive procedure, so i decided to just go on a very strict gluten-free diet. can anyone tell me what they think about these test results? maybe i am border line, maybe its just a wheat allergy, maybe i do in fact have celiac? any advice is most appreciated!!! i'm so confused. thank you. test results below. Tissue Transglutaminase IGA 19 Standard Range <=19 - Tissue Transglutaminase IGA Interpretation <20 Tissue Transglutaminase IgG 4 Standard Range <=19 - Tissue Transglutaminase IGG Interpretation <20
  7. I'm brand new to this forum, but have struggled with food allergies and digestive problems for years. As much as I try to avoid gluten/wheat it is almost impossible as I am a pastry chef. I've been to various doctors and naturopathic doctors, and have always received different answers. I have been told my issues with wheat are not a huge deal, to being told I am border line Celiac. Being border line Celiac sounds pretty serious to me. I've had blood work done (which I will post below) that has absolutely confused me. If there is anyone that can tell me in simple words what it means, it would be most appreciated. I'm trying to be hopeful I don't have it, but would really like to see what other people have to say. I'm getting a biopsy in a few weeks, which should bring a more clearer answer I hope. But in the mean time I would most appreciate any input from anyone who has a moment to reply. I dont know what I would do if I do in fact have Celiac Tissue transglutaminase IgA was 19. The standard range is <=19- units. TISSUE TRANSGLUTAMINASE IGA INTERPRETATION was <20 TISSUE TRANSGLUTAMINASE IgG was 4. Standard range is <=19- units. TISSUE TRANSGLUTAMINASE IGG INTERPRETATION was Negative: <20
