My test came back negative , I was shocked to find this out!! I really cannot believe it! So I have decided to just go Gluten Free!! I know I have gone Gluten free for 3 days and OMG the difference was amazing!! I know it seems odd that 3 days would make me feel so wonderful but it did!! So I decided that if my test came back negative I'd go gluten free, I don't need the Dr. To tell me to go gluten-free , I need me to take care of myself! Thats all!! Just take care of myself!! It just makes sense to me!! I used to do the Atkins diet, was told it wasn't good for me!! I quit a few years ago , and lo and behold I started having problems. Now mind you I don't have some of the problems alot of you have but I have problems! And the more I thought about it! The more it dawned on me! I was eating meat and fresh fruits and veggies and Atkins! Bingo!! SO back I go eating the way I did before!! I'd like to thank this forum for helping me!! I know I am new and have to have every thing I say approved my a mod. But just reading everything you all have to say is a great help!! It sure made me think!! And now I have an answer!! TY so very much!!

I hope the symptoms of your NCGI continue to improve as time goes by.  :)  You have a great attitude about starting the gluten-free diet - I'm sure that will help you immensely.  Check the boards for recipes and more tips on recovery if you need them.

 

Good luck!  :)

Congrats!  Figuring out the issue yourself is just as valid as a doctor doing it IMHO.  Most celiacs are undiagnosed or mis-diagnosed with a different condition.  The medical establishment doesn't have a great track record with diagnosiing celiac disease.  Kind of a lousy one in fact.

Thank you so very much!! I am glad you all "Think" I have a good attitude , this is like day 2 of my changing habits!! We will see how my attitude is in a couple of weeks  :wacko: LOL! Really was hard today !! I went to a friends house and they keep offering me food!! Want some toast? Want some muffins? Want some chips? No no and no thanks! I just told them any carbs I eat have to be from Natural sources ... Like potatoes and rice, They are elderly and I was not going to go into Celiac with them. SO I stayed there quite a while and didn't eat 1 piece of Gluten!! :) not one drop!! I didn't even have a cup of tea!! 

 

Now to get a pic up :)

I think you are making a smart move.  My test today said no celiac sprue identified, that I am a NCGI ( actually I think the word used was Sensitivity but I think they are the same)  Explained to me that, if I continued to eat Gluten products I could end up being Celiac.  I have not been eating Gluten products for the past year, only occasional incidents.  Well.  I do not need a diagnosis.  I just will never the touch the stuff again, not intentionally anyhow.  Same plan for my kids,

 

So, good for you.

Good for you!  :) I usually try to bring some munchies when I visit, and let people fuss over my drinks (some of us just like to fuss) and then a visit goes smoothly.

 

Don't be surprised if you start feeling a bit worse for a week or so, many of us go through a withdrawal that makes us tired, grumpy and headachey.  Hopefully it won't hit you but if it does, know that it doesn't last.

 

p.s. You and your daughter look so much alike. Pretty girl.  I'm glad she is getting checked too.

Absolutely !! It is!! it was all in my gut!! I knew something was wrong!! My pants would sag on my bottom but be tight on my gut!! I took myself off and 1 week!! Wow!! Now I don't know what I ate yesterday! But something had me a lil bloated!! I was even a lil bloated today from what ever it was!! I think I made hubbs some noodles and out of habit I tasted them to see if they were done. That is the ONLY thing I can think of!! Some times old habits are hard to break!! When I realized I did that I was like OMG what did I do? Then realized how many times I did it .... I have to break those tasting to see if something is done habit!! And stirring with the same spoon habit!!

  It's exciting, isn't it? I remember that first week on my elimination diet...ah. I told the doctor it felt like my stomach and abdomen had simply disappeared. I swear I had to look down to see if I still had an abdomen because I felt like a floating head. :-) Great feeling. Congrats to you! Stay with it.

  I was lucky and my test came back positive, but my dad refused to go to the doctor to get tested and just went gluten-free. I kind of wish I had more testing done. All they did was a blood test. :-( I know there is genetic testing and the endoscopy, which I never actually had. I'm so excited to go to the Celiac Center at Columbia University at the end of the month. I have learned that it is very important to find a doctor who is an expert on Gluten Intolerance and Celiac disease. Were you lucky enough to find a doctor like that?

   I also recommend reading Gluten-Free Girl by Shauna James Ahern. She has a great attitude and some suggestions on how to cope. Love that book.

I kept doing that in the beginning, that is just one reason everyone is now eating this way, that and at least 2 of our kids have little things that add up to gluten and go away without it.  The other 3 have had improvements without it.

My daughter is a celiac, I tested negative - twice.  I quit gluten anyway - mostly to support her at first, but I feel so much better.  Last week I had a plate of gluten pasta that someone offered me - looked good, I was hungry - poor choice because it made me quite ill for a few days.  So I'm just going with it!

Yea thats why I wish I would of been tested positive! So I wouldn't think in my head " I am not Celiac, I can eat some" And go for it!! The good thing Is I have never been a big bread Fan or a big Noodle fan! So I will not be tempted by that! Now come  the holidays! I have noooo idea what I am going to do!! We go to hubbs brothers house!! I always blamed it on his water , because I run to the bathroom every time we eat over there!! Now I know it isn't the water! I will have to take my Gluten free dishes over there and just eat those! No more of his BIL's cheesie potatoes with Cream of soups!! And stuff! Wow! I think back on these last few weeks and think , I cannot believe I was eating all that Gluten! I am sure I may be getting some ( I don't know where from) but I am sure I am getting some but I sure feel better!!

 

It is nice you quit Gluten to support your daughter!! I'd of done the same thing! And then having it in your face and eating some then feeling bad!! So very sorry!! Hope you feel better soon!!

There's still a few things I'm trying to work out in my head, are gluten sensitivities also hereditary? Or is there a flaw in the test? A couple of my family members want to get tested ( we all suffer from different autoimmune diseases) do you have to get all the tests done because one will show and another may not? Has anyone tested negative and then later tested positive?

Since there are no reliable tests for gluten intolerance other than eliminating it and seeing what happens, I am answering about Celiac disease.

 

 It is hereditary but not everyone with the genes for it develops it. You could test negative today but become positive at a later date.

 

 

Editted because it didn't really make sense.  :blink: Got to stop letting the cat help with answers.

Cute :) I have to edit mine a lot too, I keep telling myself to proof read but....

Thanks, I guess it's just hard figure out why some people have the same symptoms and GFD helps but their tests were negative.

Only reason I'm so inquisitive is because I'm trying to explain all of this to my fam and I don't even totally understand it. I knew the gene sometime isn't "activated" (for lack of a better word) until later or maybe from stress or trama. I did know enough to tell them to ask for a full Celiac panel when they go for the blood test. (Hope that was right) *crosses fingers*

I had a pretty long talk with a friend of mine today, she told me she thought I was doing great on my diet because I get it in my head I cannot eat some stuff so I just don't eat it! I said because 1st of all I hate spending most of my time thru out the day running to the rest room, and second of all , I went on this diet for 3 days and felt so much better!! And actually I have never really been much of a bread eater, and the noodles I could live w/o .. everything eles I can eat!! Just make sure it is Gluten free!! So we were at the store and I was looking for Basmitti rice, She said "ohh ohh look here it is and it is gluten free" It was a special kind. Because the other Basmatti rice was not gluten free , So she is behind me on my diet! I also told her , this is NOT a diet! It is a way of life!! I will try <-- key word ..to never eat a glutenized noodle or piece of bread or dish of anything again!! If I do it will be a total accident!!

OK talked to the Dr's office , after they sent me a letter wanting me to call them, My test for Celiac came back positive. I said but you called and said it was negative!! She said I have your test right in front of me and it is positive. So I have a Dr. apt. with some other Dr. In Aug! SO back on Gluten I go! 

My friend said well you wanted to be sick from something. I said No I wanted answers!! And this "If I am going to be sick from anything" I'd much rather be Celiac than any thing eles!! I can control Celiac!! So end result " Test for Celiac" POSITIVE .... Thank you!! Now I know!!

    • You should never have cut out gluten until you had the biopsy done. It's much worse to have to go back on after you've been off gluten for a while. There's no way I could ever do the gluten challenge after being off gluten for even a month because my reactions got so dramatically worse.  Stress definately can trigger celiac- before I was diagnosed - it got the worst after surgery and after a stressful time planning my daughters wedding. 
    • Hi not diagnosed celiac, Welcome to the forum! Your doctor should be sent to remedial celiac disease training.  Since that probably won't happen, I suggest you find a new doctor.  He doesn't know what he's doing when it comes to diagnosing celiac disease. You should not have gone gluten-free before completing all celiac disease testing.  The testing for celiac disease depends on the immune reaction being active.  Removing gluten before testing removes the antigen that causes the immune system to react, and lowers the chances of getting a correct test result dramatically.  The University of Chicago celiac disease center recommends: ******************************************** http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-is-a-gluten-challenge/ Prior to blood testing we recommend 12 weeks of eating gluten. Prior to an endoscopic biopsy we recommend 2 weeks of eating gluten. In the case of a severe reaction to gluten, a medical professional may opt to shorten the 12-week challenge and move immediately to an endoscopic biopsy. May, 2013 ******************************************** So you will need to go back to eating gluten before your endoscopy.  That may cause worse symptoms than before when you were eating gluten.  So it would have been better to do all testing before going gluten-free. Can you search for a celiac disease support group in your area?  They exist in many parts of the USA and world.  They can be a good place to get a knowledgeable doctor recommendation.  There is also a doctors subsection of this forum where you can search to see if any doctors in your area were recommended.
    • I get these crazy cravings for some things I can not eat anymore. Not only am I diagnosed with celiac but I also have a allergy to corn, olives, sesame, peanuts, and intolerance to yeast, soy, dairy, and a very low tolerance for carbs/sugars, Top it off with I can not digest meats or egg yolks, they just give me the burps and come up later.
        To deal with these I find myself turning to Republic of Teas (They have a great desert tea line up all certified gluten-free) and sweetening them with monk fruit extract, or stevia. And I find myself making Puddings bases that I use for shakes, dips, and ice-cream for meals. The puddings are normally a blend of cashew, or almond milk with a thickening agent like agar agar, pectin, or knoxx gelatin, blended with a sweetener like xylitol, swerve, stevia, monk fruit or a combination. And flavored with Lor Ann Oils (all gluten-free certified and you can find the kosher ones listed as such) super strength flavors or fountain syrups to match something I can not eat normally a combination of two flavors (Strawberry Cheesecake, Banana and Carmel, Cookies & Cream, etc) Then I add a fat that matches best, like almond butter, cashew butter, hemp butter, ground flax seed, coconut flour, chocolate, Pumpkin seed butter or a combination) These bases are normally blended up and consumed with 1-2 scoops of protein powder and eaten with steamed vegges as a side dip or loaded into a ice cream maker for a desert after my meals.      Also found myself making desert soups....like a pumpkin soup that taste like pumpkin pie. I am sure we all have our little quirks but this is one of mine for getting that sweet craving taken care of. Most premade items are off my list due to the allergies and it seems most companies use the oils, starches I am allergic to as non stick or thickening agents, Even the semi safe ones tend to put way to much sugars in them and I find myself only being able to nibble . There is also my little binge issues with almonds, pumpkin seeds, and, cocoa but that was explained to me as normal And on my most craving for peanuts I have found sancha inchi powder to work great, The Powder itself taste like the girl scout peanut butter cookie sandwich from my childhood, And is great mixed with a bit of almond milk into a butter or used in baking and smoothies. Before this I have been making Artisan blends of almond butter for years and even made a market selling them to pay  for my own consumption. Baked goods wise I have a bunch of recipes I make for others and sell at markets and this allows me to nibble on a sample to check it, as most contain a bean or gluten-free Harvest Oats/Flour in them and the carbs from that and the coconut sugars bother me. Still helps with cravings there, I only have 2 recipes that sell good and are safe for me to eat full servings of but are so expensive as they use almond and coconut flours, low sugars/xylitol and are paleo that I only can afford to make them once a month. Posting to hear about some odd and out there ways others deal with substitutions and cravings. Please do not bash mine as odd as they might be as they keep me from going crazy. (Yes I know DROP THE OATS, fact is I only get them when tasting stuff and they are gluten-free Harvest, the only ones I have never gotten glutend with)  
    • After suffering pretty much all year with one illness after another I've finally managed to get a diagnosis and it turns out to be celiac. After my doctors consistently failing to even consider the possibility it might be that (as opposed to "IBS" or "stress") I kept pushing for the Iga TTg test and it was off the charts with a score of >128... may as well fail it in style I guess. So here I am at the start of what feels like the end of my life as I know it. Been doing nothing but reading for the past week and frankly it's terrifying. Here's a few things that are going round in my head and I'd really appreciate your thoughts with. Apologies if it's a bit of an essay  Diagnosis I'm still furious at my doctors for not even entertaining the thought that celiac could be the root cause of all my ills. Given the blood test is so simple it feels almost negligent that they don't run this right at the start to rule it out. Instead I got subjected to poisons like Omeprazole which made me even more ill, whilst being told the physical symptoms were all in my head. Just as well I knew better and kept hitting up Google until my self-diagnosis was proved correct... to think these people get paid highly to be so incompetent makes my blood boil. Does feel good having outwitted the so-called professionals though. Seems 9 months is comparatively quick from symptoms to diagnosis compared to some others that have gone years with the problems so could be worse I guess. Food and diet I'm male vegetarian (non-negotiable) which makes this even harder as so many of my protein sources are now ruled out. Seems many with celiac were having trouble losing weight whereas I'm in the opposite situation. Already lost best part of a stone in the past few weeks and it's becoming noticeable now. The MyFitnessPal app reckons I need 2600 calories a day to maintain \ gain weight - no idea where that's going to come from. On top of that I read sites like Gluten Dude where even the Gluten Free foods are seen as poisons and going on extreme diets like Paleo \ SCD are the only real way forward. Again being veggie makes that practically impossible and if I'm unlucky enough to end up with the dairy issues as well I'm well and truly stuffed. Right now I'm trying the gluten-free Quorn products to see how I go, as well as more eggs etc. Porridge has been my go-to breakfast in the mornings for a while after I cut out bread whilst self-diagnosing but depending on where you read even that's a potential problem (currently using gluten-free porridge oats and seeing how it goes) Seems many gluten-free people have to go right back to basics and cook everything from scratch. That's a problem for me as I'm utterly hopeless on that front and time doesn't permit waiting hours just to prepare one meal. Seems nigh-on impossible to do day-in, day-out. Health Rightly or wrongly right now I see this diagnosis as a death sentence long-term. Looks like it brings other associated illnesses with it and this particular article really scares me: http://scdlifestyle.com/2012/03/the-gluten-free-lie-why-most-celiacs-are-slowly-dying/ I've only really had noticeable symptoms for the past year or so but wonder how long this has been going on for and what damage has already been done. All seems to have started from when I turned 30 (knew I was dreading that age for a reason) and right now I wonder how long I'm going to last before the really bad stuff starts. One of the other illnesses I'd considered as a possibility before getting diagnosed was Hashimoto's Thyroiditis; now it seems that's closely linked with Celiac so may not be out of the woods with that yet either. Just seems to be one big list of illness all triggered from the same point One positive change I've noticed thus far since cutting out gluten is that bloating seems to have gone down and bowel movements are better. Still getting headaches and muscle twitching, which could be as much a withdrawal symptom from gluten as anything else.  Some sites were suggesting stopping exercise whilst withdrawing but I can't face that as it's the only thing keeping me going at present. Again will keep going as-was and see what happens. Then to top it off it sounds like the next step is the biopsy - I'm scared of being put out for the procedure as a member of family went into hospital a few years back for something supposedly routine and never came back out. From what I've been told it's important to have done though as it shows just how broken the villi are so another thing to worry about in the meantime. I've just read on another thread that you have to be on gluten to have the test, that's another kicker after having started to cut it out the diet. With such a high blood test Iga-TTg score isn't it almost certain that celiac is the cause and the endoscopy in this case is just confirming levels of damage? OK means I can have a final blow-out eating all the "bad" foods but no doubt with all the side effects that come with it... Social life Seems like despite there being some gluten free options in certain restaurants (granted better now than years ago) I'm going to be hugely limited in food options. Either sitting on the side looking on or just plain not able to go out much anymore. Already had the first hitting-home moment watching colleagues eating pastries that were brought in while I just have to look on... then it dawns that this is never going to get better... urghhh Family life I'm really struggling to accept this lifelong illness and loss of health and it's taking a toll on the people around me at the moment. They won't be going gluten-free so will have to take my chances with the mixed kitchen environment; already gone with split toasters etc. so can't do much more than that. Dating Basically seems game over on that front, unlike many who are diagnosed with understanding partners \ spouses I'm still in the dating game, which is judgemental enough as it is without all the complications that the gluten issues bring. I'm reading even kissing someone with lipstick \ make-up is apparently a big no-no... once any date hears that they won't be coming back... forever alone status confirmed is how it looks right now. Overall feelings I still can't quite figure out if this illness was in me all along and just hasn't flared up enough to notice until now or whether the extreme stress I've been under for the past year or so has triggered it. If the second scenario is correct I can't stop thinking about the events that all led up to this almost year-long bout of ill health and life-changing diagnosis. Can celiac be brought on by stress alone or realistically was I always a ticking timebomb just waiting to be set off? For every person I see that's had a positive change after cutting out gluten (and getting by with reasonably achievable adjustments) there seems to be 10 others with horrible side-effects and long-term complications. Right now the future feels rather bleak - like all hope just been taken away. Help???
    • It sounds like you're doing great. That's amazing that your anxiety has decreased like that. You're obviously doing something really good for your health. With the other things I'm sure they will get better in time. After I gave up gluten I had a bad year but overall it got better. Things like anxiety and insomnia massively improved over time with being gluten free. However, going Paleo (which you are on your way to with the no dairy too) really helped my anxiety, as did running and self-taught acupressure. In particular I found processed gluten free foods were awful for my mood. I know you have to find your own way but I really want to encourage you to see how you feel without that if you haven't already. I also can't afford therapy but when I did have it, that helped too but just being well, gives you the chance to sort your own thoughts and feelings out even without a therapist. Good luck
