Sorry if this is old news to any of you- but it's new to me, so I decided to share.  This is my new favorite website about Celiac Disease.  Lots of information in a concise and easy to read format from real, live, medical professionals.  Must be nice to be a celiac in chicago with this resource!

Ohhh I like it!! It has alot of info in there!! Thanks!! Altho I don't live in Chicago. But it is nice to have some nice sites to send people to when they want to know about Celiac disease. I try and explain but sometimes they still do not get it.

Agreed, Mamaw!   People in this forum are great and so very helpful.  This site is also wonderful for many other reasons.  I also don't feel alone here ...or crazy.  I know I can post about my frustrations and people will understand.  I know I can post some bizarre thing that my body is doing and someone out there has already been-there-done-that. Invaluable feedback.

 

However, if you want to know medical facts, I would suggest going to my new fav website (as opposed to my longtime fav website): What's the medical difference between gluten intolerance and celiac, how to conduct a gluten challenge (how much and for how long), what are the genetic odds that immediate family members also have celiac, etc.  The info is provided by experts in the field and is up to date.  Just the facts ma'am.

anti-soprano because of your post I visited the Chicago site even though I use it often, and just for fun searched "DGP"  They now have this posted:

 

http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/archives/faq/are-raised-dgp-igg-levels-an-early-sign-of-celiac-disease

 

I got a positive DGP-IgG score but nothing else, and although they kind of dance around the question, it relates the test to celiac instead of gluten intolerance.  I plan on sending this link to family members.

 

Thank you!

I agree, and I think the Univ. of Chicago website is most informative site as well. Here is one I find a close second:

http://www.thepatientceliac.com/

It is authored by a women who has Celiac and happens to be an MD ,some of her children were diagnosed as well.

KarenG, "GottaSki" Lisa and I are always posting links to the U of C website. :)

We also agree...it has the most comprehensive information in one spot.

 

I also like Tricia Thompson and Shelley Case's sites for nutritional information

and the book Real Life With Celiac Disease by Melinda Dennis

and Daniel Leffler.

Excellent Resource--covering dozens of topics written by over 50 celiac specialists.

 

And "the patient celiac" is extremely informative. Jess knows her stuff. And she graciously shares

her knowledge on various celiac-related sites as well as her own.

Yes they are all great Irish Heart , but yet I hang in here :) This is a very nice site!! I do refer to this site if and when people have questions, either they don't understand and I cannot explain , Or don't have time to explain, I just hand them a sheet of paper with the website on it. I just really like to see it from all sides from different people and such , different perspectives , different stories. But having a  site like this where you can talk and get more and more information from, trials , and tribulations. Is wonderful!! Makes me feel I am not alone in this world! And seems so much stuff comes together for me when I read some of the stuff some have to say. I visit other sites , read them , think wow that was a good site!! Then I come in here :)

We do kinda grow on ya, don't we? (like mold)

And we are wicked smart. (ahem, and humble)

:D

seriously, though.....I have always found the advice from real live celiac veterans to be the best resource there is,

next to the celiac specialists.

All of the websites that have been mentioned in this thread have been super helpful for me and my family while I am learning about my recent diagnosis. Thanks so much! I have a background in science so it's lovely to read all the scientific statistic based research as well as personal experiences.

It is a great site.  They need a link to this forum, though!  The people on here are amazing.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
