I Was Told Wrong

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"

And here I was expecting a ring and pin!! Wheat in Kansas? I have wheat growing down the road from me!! 

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.

    • Welcome!   You were smart to think about cross contamination.  Although it is great that there are so many gluten-free options out there, in the beginning it is best to try a whole foods diet, until your son feels a bit better.  The learning curve for the gluten-free diet is steep.  It is better for you to get everything down before letting others feed him.   When I was diagnosed, my hubby had been gluten free for 12 years.  I thought I knew the drill and converted right over to those gluten-free goodies I baked him.  Turned out, like many of us, I had some food inolerances not related to gluten but as a result of gut damage.  So, additives like Xantham gum made me think I was getting glutened, but I was not.  So, again, try to stick to naturally gluten free foods that are less processed for a while.  When you do venture out, I use "find me gluten free" and read the reviews from celiacs (not a person who thinks gluten-free is a way to lose weight! )   Here are some great tips from out Newbie 101 thread:  
    • I have the same problem. Was told it was psoriasis but no treatments worked even injections. I was daignosed celiac in may, and noticed a year ago the palm of my hand would itch intensely then get small blisters. I believe they are both dh. Have been gluten-free since diagnosis but still have issues with both areas. Thankful digestive issues cleared but would love to know how long before they clear up? I hope we both get feed back and best wishes to you!
    • Yes it most certainly could be a false negative, and I would bet you a dozen donuts that it is (gluten free, of course.   )  At the very least you can be sure it is related to gluten.  These gluten rashes take forever to clear up.  I don't know about you, but whenever I start to doubt my gluten intolerance, I just look at my skin, and the old blood stains on my sheets, and I am reassured that it's not all in my head, and I need to avoid gluten as if it were a bucket of battery acid.
    • Hello, My fiance and I are going to Singapore for our honeymoon next year and I was wondering if anyone knew any cafes/restaurants etc that have gluten-free dishes? We previously went two years ago and enjoyed ourselves so much that we definitely wanted to go back our our honeymoon. Catch is I got diagnosed as being gluten intolerant a few months ago, negative for Coeliac though. If I eat gluten I have bad nausea, bloating, diarrhea etc. Not pretty for a honeymoon :-) I am more than happy to eat fruit at breakfast and make do with steamed rice at dinner etc but if anyone has any ideas on anywhere I can safely eat that would be much appreciated. I don't care how much it costs! Also is it possible for me to bring packaged gluten-free food into Singapore from Australia? I am not sure on the rules. Thank you!!
    • Went in and talked to the manager of our pm and asked about the gluten free pizza, and he told me he can't guarantee its 100% gluten free because of the flour in the air from the other crusts being made.  I value the honesty.   The other employee also mentioned changing gloves.   I was thinking wow great, until I walked out and got to thinking about cross contamination from everyone grabbing the toppings out of the same bins and spreading the sauce with the same utensils.    My son was just diagnosed this week so we are new to the whole lifestyle.   So any help or info is greatly appreciated.    Thanks
