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!

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)

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.

      I am glad you are feeling so much better!  Your posting will encourage others.  Thank you!
    • Last posted 2013 - Improving health
      When I first started this journey, roughly 11 yrs ago with symptoms, I had no clue. Eventually, having no luck with doctors (hypochondriac or psychosomatic), I googled my symptoms over and over looking for something... ANYTHING... that would give me a clue. Among other issues, my insides would not move, I was turning gray, felt like death, and had a persistent cough. I can't remember who but someone had posted on the forum and I found some of my symptoms. Eureka, I immediately began a gluten-free diet to see if it made any difference. Of course that was a journey, not realizing what products contained gluten. Long story shorter – first I went gluten-free, symptoms began to reappear, then it was soy (first organic was okay, then not), symptoms reappeared, took out corn, symptoms reappeared, then it was all grains. So the last couple of years I have been grain-free plus no sulphates. Actually, truth be told, my Celiac pharmacist gave me the recipe for health. I asked her if she liked a certain product. She answered, “I don't know, I have never tried it.” I asked her what she did use. She replied, “Nothing out of a box, a bag, or a bottle.” And that has pretty much been my life for the last couple of years. There is the odd product I try but it always has an after effect and I have to way the consequences against the enjoyment of it. I am one of those who react to 1 crumb in the butter, flour dust in the air, sulphates in anything, sometimes things that don't even seem like they would be a problem, like avocados and blueberries when I am contaminated. January 2016 I began this recitation. It is now May 5th, 2016 - Here I am 4 months later and I feel like screaming to anyone who will listen, “Things are improving!! My gut is healing!!” So what happened?? Someone suggested digestive enzymes. My insides were so compromised that I couldn't eat much besides fruit, veggies, and meat; all plain, all without being touched by people other than me. I could barely stand salt at times when I was compromised. Haven't been to a restaurant in years since I am not in a city that would have one to cater or understand this much of a problem. I started digestive enzymes but I read the label wrong and started with 5 first thing in the morning. Whatever... I began to notice improvements in what I could eat. Not anything different but just that I could eat without feeling ill or having my gut shut down. I stayed on those for a month and a half.. then I picked up a parasite from someone living in a very unclean apartment and visiting there and helping to clean. Well, that was a huge battle. I had to eat to discourage parasites. But in the process my insides began to heal dramatically. I was eating blackberries, drinking garlic keefir (which I couldn't have done 5 mths ago and gave me the first clue my insides had improved substantially), drinking oil of oregano or peppermint oil drops in a glasses of water, eating cabbage and green roughage. Drinking water with apple cider vinegar in it and Aloe Vera juice. After a couple of weeks my insides were a whole different story. I had a feeling of wellness that I hadn't had for years! I FELT like trying to eat something different. So I decided to try Gluten-free Rice Chex. Haven't had them in years.... and I am so happy! I can eat them!! (Not to say they are healthy, cause they are processed crap) but I didn't get sick and that was the amazing part. So now I am beginning to try a few things that would have set me back previously, I have made my own crème brulee because I have always been able to eat eggs. But the sugar was causing problems, but now it's okay. The issue I have now is that I want to try things too fast so I am having to exercise restraint. So here is it – parasites are very common, everyone has them however whether they cause problems depends on your immune system. Does it not makes sense that they would cause leaky gut? An over abundance in the gut would destroy gut tissue and take nutrients from a person and possibly put holes in the gut leading to food reactions? Digestive enzymes help to destroy the protective coating around parasites. Foods that discourage them or kill them are blackberries, garlic, cabbage, oil of oregano, peppermint oil, aloe vera juice, Braggs apple cider vinegar and more (google to find). I found medication didn't do anything so I turned to all the other. So this is how it is today. I don't suggest it is the answer to anyone else's problems but when I found this site, hidden in the posts was the beginning of the answers for me.  I may still be gluten, soy, corn intolerant but I am feeling so good now and I just thought I would tell someone.  I just wanted to share. Thanks for reading.
    • Endoscopy in 9 days after being low-gluten for a year. What to eat?
      Not to mention my hips and knees are killing me and I have really bad calf pains and horrible bloating after just 3 days of glutening. I don't think I could live like this for a whole week.
    • Endoscopy in 9 days after being low-gluten for a year. What to eat?
      I saw my gi today and he said to not worry about eating gluten. I have abdominal pain in the small intestine area and referred pain in my back, indicating pretty bad damage. So I'll just go without the gluten and do the genetic testing if needed.
    • Vagus Nerve Attack
      Hello All: I came across this series of posts from as Google search on "Wheat Vagus Nerve". I find all of your replies very interesting and would like to add mine for those searching for information but with differing symptoms. I have struggled with the vagus nerve impact to breathing as Maria mentioned in the original post, but only an impact to breathing and nothing else.  But my symptoms were brought on not only by wheat, but also by other ingredients such as dark chocolate, probiotics, caprylic acid, mustard, fluoride in toothpaste/mouthwash just to name a few.  I found when I sat down my breathing would return to normal, but as soon I got up, the impact would return. The impact to breathing would come 4-6 hours after ingestion and last for about the same amount of time.  At times I could not even take ten steps without having to stop, not being able to breath even moderately.  The symptoms now are decreasing in severity but not in duration. My doctor checked my blood for celiac and results were negative. A number of chest x-rays to rule out COPD.  I am waiting on an appoint with an allergy specialist in a few weeks to see what they have to say.  Needless to say, it is difficult to maintain a healthy weight. Thanks for your posts, and I hope my contribution is of benefit to others also.

      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.
