Wow :) That is so awesome!

Between bus runs and afterward, she trains for the kickboxing competition. Diagnosed last year with celiac disease, Gilbert hasn’t let it slow her down.
Yep, that's her!

Hey guys I'm back and yep this article is about me... How did you find this? :lol: You guys are amazing :lol:

I had an awesome time up there. Although I couldn't win, I had the best world championships I ever had (so far). I know this year will be hard to top in the future. I will tell you all of this exciting week in a couple of days. I'm still writing on it.... that will be long... phew :rolleyes: . To water your mouth a little bit:

My husband had a big surprise for me. I met my old german trainer. The Team USA had a great reaction to my celiac restrictions and I passed one of the finals with 1/10 of a point :o . So 4th place actually, but you don't get a medal for that. Aluminum medal :lol: . I also had the honor to get elected into the USA women fighter team. I must have made a real good impression, cause now I'm also the Pennsylvanian IAKSA State Representative and I'm already working on looking for good people for the next world championships. I hope I don't have to wear a suit and tie :lol: . Ha... But I already found one gray hair, that's gotta count for something B) ...

But I probably will come with the IAKSA USA Team as either a referee or coach only for the next two years. Due to the fact, that the WKA Association isn't answering my letters :( (maybe they don't like germans) and for the IAKSA World championships I have to be an American (even if I would qualify at a qualifier, I wouldn't be allowed to start for the Team, so why waist all the money in the first place???), the next 2 years I won't even have a chance on a World Championship again (in 2 years I get my American citizenship). But I already start to prepare now for then (maybe even for the Olympics?, so I will be even better :D ). Thanks for your help the last couple of weeks guys. I couldn't have made it without you. THANKS 1000 TIMES!!! You will also get an update on my sports diary.

And yeah, the celiac. I knew from the start, if there would be an article in the newspaper I want to mention the celiac in there. And I have a stubborn head. Oh, Kathy (in one of the pics) is the women in my Team that has celiac, too. I already mentioned her several times in here.

Hugs and Happy Thanksgiving to everybody, Stef

If you want to see it at 4th place, I mean. The thing is, that there is one 1st place, one 2nd place and TWO 3rd places :o . All four of them are in the finals in the form performing classes. I missed this final with 1/10 of a point. So theoretically spoken it's a 4th place, cause there are two 3rd places and no 4th place in the finals. But some people say it's 5th... I don't know :huh: . One thing I know, is, that I improved greatly. Cause 2003 in Ireland I already passed the final with 1/10 of a point :rolleyes: and there weren't nearly as much people than now in Canada. And the skill lewel two years ago was waaay lower than this time, too :P . So I must have improved. :blink:

One thing I know for sure (without being cocky now) is I did a really good job and I worked hard for it :D . And I didn't give my opponents an easy time. They really earned it, too. And I didn't give anything away either. It was the highest skilled kickboxing world championships I ever competed in (or watched, I also was spectator when I wasn't competing). Every competitor there really earned it to yet alone be there. It was awesome... :lol: I'm so glad I did this. Well, I'm at my parents in law at the moment so I have to get going. But as I said, you will get some nice, cool, funny, sad, emberassing whatever stories. There's something for everybody.

Hugs, Stef

I loved the article! Congratulations! Thank you for mentioning the Celiac. I have showed the article to my daughter, what a great gluten free role model!

Thanks, Laura, this makes me so proud :wub: . First I was afraid of mentioning celiac (just like the "big" celebrities :P ). But then I "jumped over my shadow" and told 'em. Now it's out and actually it wasn't that bad. Actually it gave me a little bit of popularity. Since I'm back from Canada strangers on the street talk to me about this, cause they remember. Isn't that cool? And one of the women I had in my class beginning 2004 remembered me when I went shopping in WalMart (she's working there). She tries to talk to her boss about having me "over" for christmas for a charity thing and giving out pics with autographs. If this should ever happen, I will fight for bringing in glutenfree foods into our WalMart. Because our WalMart in Carlisle doesn't have glutenfree foods.

At the moment I'm planning for our "2 in 1" holiday party December, 10th. "2 in 1" means christmas and world championships celebration in one. The press probably will be there again (I don't know for sure, but they will get my invitation at the beginning of next week) and I'm struggling with the decision at the moment to invite celiacs and make a big thing with glutenfree food :ph34r: . My beloved Kathy won't come, so I would be the only one and without help in this section :( . I can't count on the help of my other students. None of them is celiac. They probably would contaminate the food without knowing. So I don't know what to do at the moment. I'm fussing and planing and can't get anything done... What do you guys think?

    • Now that my initial rage has calmed a tad.... your daughter has to fulfill 4 out of 5 of the diagnostic criteria. Second opinion can do a gene test. If positive, then she will have4 out of 5 of the dx criteria to dx without a positive biopsy. See: http://www.gastro.org/news_items/a-biopsy-should-not-be-required-to-make-the-diagnosis which says in part: The presence of signs and symptoms compatible with celiac disease. Positive serology screening (high serum levels of anti-TTG and/or EMA). Presence of the predisposing genes HLA-DQ2 and/or –DQ8. Histological evidence of auto-insult of jejunal mucosa typical of celiac disease. Resolution of the symptoms and normalization of serology test following the implementation of a gluten-free diet.   Also see: http://www.tenderfoodie.com/blog/2014/5/1/dr-fasano-on-new-gut-autoimmune-research-autism-clearing-up.html She can get a dx after her symptoms resolve on a gluten-free diet!
    • OMG!!!! The doc wants her to get sicker & sicker & do further damage so he can diagnose her? Don't do me any favors doc!!! I'm so spitting med right now I can't even speak! Find a new doc, take the records & get a second opinion. Maybe the next doc will have a freaking brain & dx your daughter. She should be dx'd! This is absurd in the extreme. The very least that should happen is the doc give her a dx now & then in a year or 2 have her do a gluten challenge & do a biopsy all over again but seriously, that would be just as cruel as what he's doing now. He's an ASS!

    • Cyclinglady is absolutely correct, after hours of internet research the only gluten-free food available at JNB is a fast food chain called 'Nandos'. I was hoping for a bit more variety, but I'll take what I get.   
    • I'm so confused about my daughter's diagnosis.  I hope somebody can help.   My 4 year old daughter has a swollen belly, stomachaches, and lots of gas.  She does not have diarrhea or delayed growth.  Because of her symptoms and because it runs in the family (2nd degree relatives) I had her tested for celiac.   She was weak positive for TTG (IGA)  and strong positive for DGP (IGG)   TTG (IGA)  8   (0-3 neg, 4-10 weak positive, greater than 10 positive) TTG (IGG)  2   EMA: Negative DGP (IGG)  47  (0-19 negative, 20-30 weak positive, greater than 30 positive) Last week, she had her endoscopy.  The doctor found inflammation and little holes or bumps on her duodenum.  He started her on prevacid and said based on his observations, he was suspicious of celiac, but he would not be able to confirm until the biopsy came back. The biopsy showed no signs of celiac disease.  He said that he could not diagnose her with celiac without the biopsy report saying there was celiac damage.  He said he would categorize her as a potential celiac, keep her on a gluten diet and redo the endoscopy in a year or two to check for damage again.  My questions are: 1.)  If it is not celiac, something is causing her duodenum to be inflamed and have little holes or bumps on it, right?  Could it be a wheat allergy or gluten sensitivity?  What else could it be and how do they test for it?  Given her elevated celiac antibodies, how likely is it to be anything besides celiac causing the damage?  2.)  How likely are false positives for TTG and DGP?  I've heard they are pretty sensitive and specific.  Does getting two positives make false positives less likely? 3.) What have you done in this situation?  I want her to have an official diagnosis to make things easier at school and to feel confident that we are eliminating gluten permanently for a worthy reason, etc.  But, I'm having a hard time imagining keeping her on gluten and waiting for her to get more sick and have more intestinal damage just for a diagnosis.     Thanks in advance for your help.  I'm so overwhelmed and confused.  I hope someone has some insight and experience that will help clear things up for me.
