KC in KC added a topic in Gluten-Free RestaurantsAnybody Know Of gluten-free Options On Amc's Fork & Screen Menu?We're taking my daughter + friends to a movie & dinner at AMC Fork and Screen. One of the friends is celiac, and I'm trying to help her mom figure out a way that she can participate in the fun. The fact that the website isn't turning up any info on gluten is discouraging, but I'm hoping that someone here has worked this one out already.
The menu is here:

KC in KC added a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsIf It's Not Celiac, What Is It?Well, my celiac panel came back negative for celiac. I've asked them to mail me the actual lab results, so I don't know yet exactly what was found.
Endoscopy showed "moderate inflammation". I've got no idea just what that means.
Currently undergoing antibiotics for H.pylori, and then I'm due for a repeat endoscopy.
And just for fun, this has pushed me into finally getting my daughter's frequent tummyaches investigated. Her first visit is this afternoon.
I'm really fighting the urge to go ahead an go gluten-free as a trial, but I'm afraid of screwing up the test results. So here I sit.

KC in KC added a topic in Celiac Meeting RoomIntroducing Myself While I Wait For Test ResultsHi everyone!
I'm SO glad I found this forum! I'm a chronic user of such things -- the support and the knowledge-sharing is so valuable! -- so when I realized we were starting down Celiac Road, I knew I needed to find some people to walk with. I've been lurking for a couple of days now already
We're approaching a celiac diagnosis a little bit backwards -- in chasing down some GI issues, my doc did the biopsy already. It came back with "moderate inflammation", so he's ordered the celiac panel. I'm just waiting not-so-patiently for the results now. I know the biopsy results *could* be from other causes, but based on symptoms from myself and my daughter, celiac sure sounds like a strong likelihood. Kinda feels like waiting for the other shoe to drop now.
We have a couple of friends with confirmed celiac, so I have absorbed a certain amount of knowledge from them already, plus I know I've got some automatic local support, if necessary. But I'm a research junkie, so I'm dealing with the waiting-suspense by researching.
Just at the moment my biggest concern is simply logistics. I don't do much cooking at home right now, thanks to time pressures, but I know our budget won't stretch to cover much in the way of gluten-free-convenience foods. I'm going to have to figure out a new set of priorities, I think.
