      gluten-free Recipes To Freeze?
      I have a very busy time coming up and I'd like to make some gluten-free recipes in large quantities, that are good to freeze, then reheat later. Anybody have any good ideas?

      Anybody In Waterloo Region (Canada)?
      Just wondering if anybody is in the Kitchener-Waterloo-Cambridge area, and if so, if you know of any good naturopaths and/or gastroenterologists and/or nutritionists familiar with gluten intolerance?

      Should I Keep Ttc When I'm Not Sure If I Have Celiac?
      I've been trying to conceive our second child for the last 4 months. In the last few months, the stomach symptoms I've had for years have suddenly gotten a lot worse. I had a blood test for celiac disease, which came out negative, but my doctor I believe incorrectly told me I didn't have to eat gluten before the test, and I had been off gluten for 2+ weeks before the test, so I don't have a lot of confidence in the results.

      My question is, should I just continue to eat gluten-free regardless, since it seems to help, and continue to try to conceive, or should I hold off on trying until after I've gone back on gluten for long enough to get accurate test results? I presume I couldn't get an endoscopy if I was pregnant, because they'd have to sedate me... is that right? My daughter is already two years old and I really don't want our children too far apart. Also, I'm 35, and I feel like my chances of conceiving again drop with every passing month.

      Should I Ask For A Blood Retest?
      I recently had a blood test for celiac disease that came out negative. However, I had already been following a gluten-free diet for two weeks beforehand, and my doctor told me that was OK. I've recently read that you need to be on a full-on gluten-containing diet for the test to be reliable. Should I ask for a retest? In some ways I'd like to find out for sure what is wrong with me so I can stop trying to hunt for possible causes. On the other hand, I don't want to make myself sick again. Also, the test is pretty expensive and I have to pay for it.

      FYI, going gluten-free has helped a lot, but I'm still experiencing some symptoms. However, I only started trying to eliminate dairy in the last 24 hours. I feel like celiac disease "fits" my symptoms better than anything else I've ever heard of.
