  1. I will be having the scratch test on the 21st, both for food and air born. I am interested to see what shows up. Good luck and let me know how you do with your testing.
  2. My PC doctor is wanting me to have some allergy test since I am having alot of allergy problems. Went for the first appointment at allergy clinic and I was telling them about the gluten thing. They told me that since my blood test was not positive for celiac they do not think I have a true gluten problem but most likely an allergy to yeast. They said that going gluten free would also have gotten rid of alot of the yeast in my diet but not all of it. So I was wondering if any of you have had allergy test run to what all you are having and allergy to. I was also told by them that if I was truly having a celiac problem I would have been skinny before going gluten free instead of losing weight after going gluten free. From what I have read on here there are a good many of you that were like me, overweight and lost weight after going gluten free. So I am not real sure the allergy clinic knows as much as they seem to think they do. Will be waiting to see what some of you think of all of this yeast thing.
  3. I was also over weight and believe that was part of why I did not get a DX for so long. I have lost 40 pounds since going gluten free. Not everyone is skinny from it.
  4. I use to have lots of binges before gluten free. Now I find I do not want nearly as much to eat or that I want to eat as often. If I do mess up and get some gluten it seems to set me off again and then I go on binges again. I believe the gluten was making me want more food and not the right kinds of foods.
  5. HI, I do not know where you are or the time there. If he is anything like mine he called me very late in the day after his office hours were over. Said that is when he makes those kinds of calls. So hopefully you will here from him today. If not how far is his office from you? I would just take a ride to his office and tell them you need a copy right away of it to take to another doctor.
  6. Thanks for all the good sites. That is something I should get for myself.
  7. i have noticed a difference also, but had not thought of it being because of the gluten.
  8. I GET ALOT OF WHAT YOU ARE SAYING, BUT FOR ME I THINK IF I GET SOME GLUTEN IT SETS OFF SOME KIND OF CRAVING WHERE I WANT MORE AND MORE TO EAT. IF I STAY WITHOUT GLUTEN I DO NOT SEEM TO GET HUNGERY MUCH AT ALL, IN FACT I HAVE TO REMIND MYSELF TO EAT. BEFORE GOING GLETEN FREE I WAS ALWAYS HUNGERY. THEN I WAS EATING ALOT OF PASTA ETC. AND COULD NEVER GET ENOUGH TO EAT. THAT IS ONE OF THE FIRST THINGS I NOTICED WAS THAT I WAS NOT SO HUNGERY AFTER GETTING OFF OF THAT STUFF. sorry about the caps, forgot i had them on and do not want to retype it all.
  9. that is what happened with mine and i had to wake 4 days for the doctor to come back from his vacation. she would not tell me anything. my biopsy did not show anything, but was told that it happens that was sometimes if they do not do biopsy in a place where there is damage. have any of you been told that about the biopsy??
  10. I called kraft and they are mailing me a list of all of ther gluten free products. Thought some of you might like to do the same. I had found kraftcanada gluten free list of foods online but was told on the phone what is made for canada is different from what is made in the states and some on that list are not gluten free in the states.
  11. Do not know if this will help, but I was going nuts with itching a couple months ago. Went to the doctor and had an exam. Was told that I did have a bad yeast infection that was causing the itching. Was told the infection was up high enough that is why I had not seen any of the normal kind of discharge with most yeast infestions. Was given that awful cream you insert and it cleared it right up.
  12. Get a letter from your doctor. Take it to the head of your school and get the ok for your food to be kept there. Then post a copy of the letter on the door of the so called ice box. I did that once when my one son had a problem that kept him from eating the school lunches. After that no one ever said anything to him for going into the teacher dinning room to get him food out. Then he was only 8 and could in no way stand up to the teacher on his own. Good Luck
  13. I use to take a banana mash it up with a tiny bit of sugar and put that on my toast. What we have been doing to ourselves for years is something when you stop and think about it. All the so called comfort foods are gone for me it seems.
  14. I am also seeing my PC doctor every 3 months for check up. My GI doctor told me he would do a follow up once a year, but to be sure and call and come back before then if I felt I need to for any reason.
  15. Jen Thanks for posting the drug list. I had been searching for something like that. Was glad to see that all of my meds are on the list.
