I Was Told Wrong

32 posts in this topic

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."

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.

    • Weird things people have said
      You are right Dania, you cannot have "mild Coelic" disease and you cannot eat "a bit of gluten here and there" if you've been gluten free for a while. Coelic disease is a lifetime commitment to being gluten free, even if you don't have symptoms, it is still damaging the villi in the gut, which can lead to more serious health problems, (not that Coelic disease is not serious, because it is).  Some people may question whether it is safe to use the same colander as those cooking gluten, but it depends how well it is washed up as it is quite easy to miss bits. Personally, I bought a new one and I would definitely not use the same sieve as the mesh is far too tight not to collect  small amounts of gluten. I'm not too surprised at doctors not knowing all they should know about Coelic disease, it's the same here in the UK where Coelic UK actually advise doctors on the disease.

      Hi Chris, haven't had a chance to read the whole conversation but regarding dairy, if you are suspicious of something, drop it for some time and see. You are still healing so maybe dairy is bothering you now. Also look at the nightshades, corn, dairy, soy, and eggs. I had a horrible time last year. I had muscle twitches, brain fog, pain, was tired,etc. I searched online and decided to drop all of those things I mentioned above. I am not sure what bothered me since I dropped them all at once but i slowly began feeling better. Now, i reintroduced eggs again and sometimes have lactose free milk with my coffee. I recommend eating salmon, tuna, bone broth soups, using olive oil and coconut oil and not eating much or not at all processed food even if it is marked gluten free.
    • Weird things people have said
      I've had people say strange things about celiac to me lately... Like someone said, "Oh I'm just a mild celiac so I don't have to worry about cross-contamination." And then someone else said that they're celiac but things have calmed down now so they can have a bit of gluten here and there. And I told my doctor that back in 2014 I thought I had been gluten free but I actually wasn't because I had been repeatedly glutening myself with an old colander. And he just looked at me like I was insane, like a colander?? Sure... I'm not crazy, right? Even if you have no symptoms you have to avoid cross-contamination because you can be doing damage internally right? You can never have 'just a bit'. And a colander is a big source of cross-contamination right?? I know all this but why do these other people not? Why does my doctor not know? So confusing and spreading misinformation... And then they look at me like *I'M* crazy.
    • fructose malabsorption and gluten intolerant
      Look up FODMAPS.   That might clarify things for you.  There really are a lot of diet recommendations so make sure you bring a list of questions regarding foods to your doctor's  and dietician's appointments.  
    • Recovery?
      Thank you for sharing those web sites. I will look at them. We have been gluten free since December so it's been a while. Once, he had a gluten free beer, the kind that they take the gluten out, and his legs felt very heavy and had a more difficult time walking. I really don't want to experiment.  Although I am very careful about what we eat, I am concerned that some of our medication could contain gluten. Is there any easier way to tell if medication has gluten. I did find a website which listed drugs and known gluten but every drug was on it or was determined to be gluten free

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
