I am also thankful for this forum. I have learned so much more about this disease and how to deal with it than I ever did from any doctor, GI or otherwise. Thanks to everyone who has contributed to my knowledge! :)

I am grateful to all of the moderators who volunteer their precious time here.

I, too, learn SO much here and do not know where I'd be right now without having had this forum!

"Happy Turkey-Day to all!" - Scott, too!

oops - and a "Happy Tofu and Veggie day," to any herbivores...

Me too! I love this site and thank God for it. It's helped me to cope at living in a poisonous world full of gluten. I was so confused and depressed prior to finding all you super knowlegable people. I'm fairly new here but want to thank ELONWY for making me laugh everyday, JENVAN for a beautiful, caring spirit and positive attitude, RICHARD for being so unbelievably smart and celiac3270 for being such a mature, courageous kid (you give me hope for my son). I sound like I'm at the Oscar's. Sorry :lol: Just have to say that I appreciate all of you.

Wish everyone on this site a wonderful, gluten-free holiday!

I too, feel the same as Mart. There are so many of you the have guided me through the roller-coaster of Celiacland. Karen for her everpresent suppost, Kaitie for her everpresence, Richard, the word of an expert, Shirley, for thinking that everyone should know how to milk a goat, Tiffany for her knowledge and great research, celiac3270 who will do great things in his life. (esp. "You know You're a Celiac if...)

I don't mean to leave anyone out. You guys are my C-friends and I would like to meet you all some day.

Thank you, all of you for your help, in guiding me through this disease. :):)

Best of Thanksgiving to All.

Shirley, for thinking that everyone should know how to milk a goat

I really don't know how to milk a goat--seriously, I'm a New Yorker, lol.

Thank you to everyone--particularly Scott--he does so much more work than us moderators pinning topics--and all the people who post here :)

I agree also, without Scott, none of us would be here if you really think about it. His dedication must be amazing to keep this running and all the work that goes along with that. Kudos Scott! You rock! ;)

Thank you to all of our great moderators, and the great community who come here for a place to spend time. FYI: We just upgraded the board again and have a few bugs--we know about:

1) My Assitant - Loading. Please Wait...

2) Multiple calendar events

but if you see anything else please let me know.

Thanks again and have a great turkey day!

Scott

Yes--I had noticed that assistant issue just now when I logged on. Cool updates :) -- the revamped posting options, warnings are back, new general formatting. What's the new icon? The V-thing--just wondering if that had something to do with celiac like the old wheat icon or if it was some default icon that came with the board update?

Thank you for all of your hard work!

    • Today was the big day when I went to the GI and this is the first time I have felt heard about and well taken care of.  I told him about the two celiac blood tests  (in my first post) normal, he said that often happens, even with people who do have celiac and he needed to see the report and pictures from my endoscope.    I had filled out the appropriate Kaiser paperwork for Sutter to send all my medical records, but they ended up sending a celiac disease to me with the records, which Sutter said they could not use.  We also talked about gluten sensitivity v. celiac, and he said a lot of people are sensitive to gluten even if they don't have celiac. He said that my symptoms sound like classic IBS, which can be caused by any number of things.  He asked if I would try the FODMAP diet, which limits certain foods and requires no gluten due to what being He said my symptoms sound like classic IBS, which he said can be caused by any number of things, including gluten sensitivity.  He has asked if I would try the FODMAP diet, which has restricted foods as well as no gluten because most gluten products have wheat in them.  So, since I am planning on going gluten free anyway, and I don't want another endoscope or blood tests if absolutely necessary, I am going to try the FODMAP diet and see what happens. I filled a consent form at the GI office today to have all my records sent to him so he can view the endoscope pathology report and photos.  I have an appointment with a Registered Dietician on September 30, and follow up appointment the GI in 4 months. 
    • gluten-free andee, according to an article on celiac.com  that talks about this subject see this link http://www.celiac.com/articles/24406/1/Celiac-Diease-and-Other-Autoimmune-Diseases-Equals-Low-Inflammatory-Diet/Page1.html Quoting the author "In the author's personal experience, a gluten-free diet has many limitations. The reactivity between alpha gliadin and corn, millet, oats, rice and dairy has been denounced as invalid by gastroenterologists and celiac disease researchers. While at a medical school in Missouri, biopsies did not show improvement in villous atropy until all alpha gliadin sources and corn, millet, rice and oats were removed from the diet."  Note this research is two years old but hilites the problem with non-gluten rice protein that you are having. It is the alpha gliadin sources that it causing the cross reactivity you are experiencing when you eat rice protein's. She says quoting "Celiac disease has gotten the most attention in antibody research, but the current data on cross-reactivity of antibodies is allowing a better understanding of gluten sensitivity. Antigen reactivity to alpha-gliadin can trigger immune attacks on many individuals beyond those with positive DQ 2, DQ 8 and TTG test results. She goes on to say "A low inflammatory diet customized to each person through testing for cross-reactivity or elimination diet protocols is needed to restore a state of health and well-being."  which sounds exactly like what you are doing. If you are still having problems after elminating rice a 30 day elimination of all the alpha gliadin proteins might be in order.  Corn is a common reactivity problem I hear with a gluten allergy from my friends as well as the obvious lactose problems that can be common among celiacs.  But rarely do you hear Rice allergy's brought up in context of a gluten allergy. I am glad you are making progress on finding your triggers. Read the whole article for yourself to see if there are nuggets of truth I did not highlight in my response. I hope this is helpful. Good luck on your journey to health. Posterboy,
    • One other thing - you might be able to tolerate some dairy if it's only the FODMAPs problem. I discovered that many cheese such as cheddar have effectively no lactose. And my wife sometimes makes 24 hour yoghurt, which also has effectively no lactose. Those have been fine for my tummy.
    • I'm new to the forum, so this topic may already have been covered....please forgive me, if that's the case.  I am in the beginning stages of guiding the development of a 504 plan to file for my 6th-grade daughter who was diagnosed with Celiac Disease 2 weeks ago. The diagnosis was made with a biopsy. My first question...A 504 is what's necessary....not just the IHCP, correct or no? I have the Physician's Statement & the Medical Evaluation report from our GI specialist. What else do I need to have at the ready? The team has requested we go ahead and write the IHCP & then include it with the 504.  And my second question...What accommodations have others found relevant to include on the IHCP  & 504? I just watched a 504-Plan webinar I found on this forum & it recommends the following: -access to gluten-free food in classroom & cafeteria - excused absence from activities that use gluten-containing foods or materials -  prevent cross-contamination in school food service - use of microwave to heat personal meals -  bathroom priveleges Is there anything I need to consider adding? My daughter does prefer eating school meals rather than packing a lunch from home & I am concerned about special events, overnight field trips etc. My learning curve is steep. What am I missing? Teach me, please & thanks so much! This forum has already helped me tremendously these past few weeks.
