Try to make this short:

   Went to Doc. Asked him for the Celiac test. he had it done , plus regular blood terst :) but the girl didn't take enuf blood for Celiac, the place that was doing the blood test called, I went in and gave more blood, they even took more , just in case. So I went home and waited. Dr. office calls a few days later and the girl said my bllod test were all normal. I asked her, What about my celiac test, she said your blood test were all normal, sooo in my head , no Celiac... I was thinking, ok I must be just sensitive . What ever!! So that was a couple weeks ago. Today I got a letter in the mail asking to call the Dr's office , I do,  they told me my Celiac test was positive ... well I argued and she said my test was right there in front of her... I don't think my Celiac test had been in yet when my other blood tests were in .. So Wow!! was my 1st thought!!! 2'nd thought was Yay! I have answers!! 3rd thought! I have to go back on gluten to go see another dr. I can do it!! I will make sure I take care of me!!! Thanks for everything!! I love this site!! I had Nooooooo idea how long a Celiac test took!! Answers! Are wonderful!! 

 

If you get a blood test for Celiac , Ask how long before the test come back!!! Altho the blood draw person may give a stupid answer like "ohhh a couple of days"

Thanks for your replies!! It is wonderful to know!! I Have wonderful friends that are very supportive of me with this!! I am so blessed!! Now my poor daughter!! Her husbands mother was Diagnosed with Celiac about 6 months ago. So my Daughters 3 Kids have a double whamy!! I have told my oldest daughter but not my son. I need to give him a call and let him know. I should tell my sisters also. I guess! Is this something every Family member on my side should know? Most everyone lives so far from me.

That's great you are letting everyone know. It can really spread out through a family. On my dad's side, his maternal aunt and one of my cousin's kids has celiac disease, but I suspect another cousin. On my mom's side, I have a first cousin with it, and a couple of more that I suspect. I think if everyone was tested there would be a couple of more cases.

Checking the air waves for incoming celiacs from space again, K??

 

well, w8tin4 dave.... :)

 

All I can say is: Welcome to the family. Read all you can. Ask questions. Live a long and happy  gluten-free life.

 

I highly recommend this book for you and your family:

 

Real Life with Celiac Disease

by Melinda Dennis and Daniel :Leffler

 

http://www.reallifewithceliacdisease.com/

 

and the Newbie 101 thread which was written by some chick we know..

 

I will refrain from commenting further on the inept way you were given the results of your blood work, emphasize that you should always get copies of everything ever run in a lab and I have no idea why it took so long for you to get the celiac panel results as they usually come back within days around my neck of the woods. And I live in the woods.

 

Whatever!....you know now and your positive attitude will be your best advantage. ;)

 

I'll go check on the shipment of decoder rings, pins and the latest addition...tee shirts that say 

 

"Gluten free is sexy. Like me."

Good morning, Missy BB! ;)

Took me a while to catch on to the morning coffee lesson, then if I cruised by later on the day, I'd get caught with the cocktail spit.

 

(Shroomie liked to make fun of me for that one) :)

 

Now, I am a pro. I sip, swallow, put it DOWN on the table next to me... and, then read. 

 

ack! So many mental machinations to perform...mutter mutter mutter

Blue cheese is safe for Celiacs. Not sure who made your salad? If it was purchase somewhered, that may be your problem. It is possible Blue cheese dressing might have flour in , I guess.

Ok so wait, seriously, no ring? I'm so upset right now! What about a t shirt? Can I get a t shirt? :D

 

Glad you're getting answers. So many Dr's give misinformation so do GOOD research before you see GI. One GI told my neice, "well, I want to do endoscopy to see how much damage there is to see how much gluten you can have on a regular basis." When I heard that, I screamed, "FIND ANOTHER GI !!"

 

They just DON'T always know.

    • Daughter with celiac- need test result help
      Thanks so much for your reply and the encouragement! She has not had the dgp test. I will ask her doctor at the next appointment in two weeks. Her doctor is out of the country now for a family emergency so I can't talk to her before her appointment. Her thyroid is good. The whole thing has been tough - logistically dealing with the dietary change and how extremely careful we have to be. Emotionally - worrying about her health and her feelings about all of this. I'm happy her number came down so much. There's hope. I'm just praying there's not more wrong and trying to prevent any possible risk of cross contamination. It seems she's very sensitive. It's also tough she's a kid at school with gluten on every surface. 
    • Newbie: mother to coeliac kids
      Wonderful news to hear that he has finally had his testing done, and can go gluten free. I understand that he is afraid of needles. Most children are. It is great that the hospital have acknowledged his and your family's suffering. Hopefully now they will give him the A1 treatment that he deserves. I am really looking forward to hearing of his improvement, as no doubt he will come along in leaps and bounds. Children are remarkably resilient, and with any luck he will enjoy a healthy and bright future with adherence to his required diet. Way to go Mum, you have been through a lot, watching your boy suffer. I hope that you are handsomely rewarded with being able to watch him flourish now. Good luck with your older boy too. Keep us posted.
    • Newbie: mother to coeliac kids
      Well thank goodness the gluten eating is over for him now & he can begin the journey back to good health! Poor fella. He was so sick! Just a heads up --- he isn't going to feel better instantly but at least he's a kid & they heal faster as a general rule. Bone broth!!!! Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy mom! That's really going to help him!   Do I recall correctly that you still have the 17 yr. old to go through testing yet?
    • Weird Reaction
      Hi Richard Glad you are feeling better!   Sorry - DX is an abbreviation for diagnosis.   Thanks so much  for the info about MSG, broccoli and IBS.  Like you say, there is v. little bad press about broccoli. My aunt, who is a farmer's wife, put forward another theory that it might not have been the broccoli itself but rather some insecticide a farmer sprayed on it.   I just can't bring myself to try organic broccoli however...  Thankfully cauliflower is fine.  I just can't figure it out as I thought they were the in the same vegetable family?  So maybe it is MSG. Regarding anemia, there can be a link with iron anemia and anxiety. http://www.livestrong.com/article/471225-iron-anxiety/ And I was definitely breathless before my diagnosis; I remember finding myself  walking up a hill behind a  huge crowd of friends on a church walk, and many of them were at least 20 years older than me, and wondering why I was in last place! My B12 levels were very low at DX and I found B12 supplements helped enormously with anxiety.   I remember drinking Berroca and feeling so much better within hours of drinking it, on more than one occasion, before even understanding the link. I have just been told however that I can't take any more iron because my hemoglobin is on the high side.  It is a good thing my doctor was monitoring my supplementation as I gather too much iron can be dangerous.  Have you been told to supplement by your doctor?  If you are supplementing make sure you get your levels monitored. All the very best - and welcome to the forum!

      Thank  you Flowerqueen and Cristiana for your replies. I'm actually feeling much better today. I got my appetite back yesterday lunchtime (a few hours after I typed the original post) and managed to keep in/hold down some chicken and lettuce!!! I also had a "fat" coffee (as I call it) before work with MCT Oil and butter (your probably going "yuk" right now but it's really nice...really haha) and started feeling a bit better after that. The nausea went away almost immediately after that although just the thought of having all that fat nearly made me sick but I just wanted to get back to normal asap. I usually have a lot of fat in my diet anyway which is normal for me so the coffee choice isn't unusual. Plus it was also the third day which was when I started feeling better after the first time. I didn't eat til lunchtime and I was good and hungry by then so I knew I was coming out of it. That nausea and trembling feeling is something I don't want ever again. I think after the workout and tearing down muscle tissue (which is a form of stress) and then not being able to hold the nutrients in for repair affected my nervous system. My theory only but to me it makes sense. Although Vitargo also comes in flavors I always get the Natural / Unflavored one so the barley is the only ingredient. As for there being something wrong with that particular batch, well, you be on to something there. Also I'm not knocking the product because as I said, I have used it before and it did exactly what it was supposed to do. But, I will never have it again. Cristiana, my last blood test revealed I had slight anaemia which really surprised me with the amount of red meat I've eaten during my life and the anxiety thing is also new as I'm usually a happy, positive person. Life is good but after this recent reaction I think it is an indirect cause of the glutening. I'm also surprised at how sensitive I've become to it and how quickly. Also what is DX? I also follow a FODMAP eating plan (I can give you more info if you haven't heard of it) which also eliminates certain foods. It's a plan directed mostly at IBS but is well worth looking into if you are suffering any gut health, digestion issues or any ailment you may have which you can't get to the bottom of. Broccoli was one of the foods which I have cut back on and I've eaten HUGE amounts of broccoli so it is a superfood for some but apparently not for others. (I even think I read somewhere it has MSG naturally in it) It's hard to find any bad articles on broccoli so this also really surprised me. It also answered a few other questions I had. Many, many thanks again to you both for your replies. It actually settled me just reading them. I'm glad I found these forums so I don't think i'll be a stranger around here for long.   Richard

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
