Enterolab positive results only June 06:
Me HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0301; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2, 7)
Husband HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0302; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2,8)



The whole family has been soy free since February, gluten free since June 2006.

The whole family went back to a gluten diet October 2011.  We never had official testing done and I decided to give gluten a go again.  At this point I've decided to work on making some gluten free things again, though healthwise everyone seems to be fine.  The decision to add gluten back in was also made based on other things I'd read about the 2nd sequence of genes.  It is my belief that we had a gluten intolerance, but thanks to things I've learned here, I know more what to keep an eye on.  If you have a confirmed case of celiac, please don't go back to gluten, it's a lifelong lifestyle change.

Hey! You moved some of the party over here and no one told me :angry:

Well, I found you anyways! :lol:

Susan, this cream sounds too strong for you--are you using it every night? I know that with a lot of the stronger "peel" type creams, you start out very slowly--like once a week.

If the peeling and burning persist, you probably need something else. Was this prescribed for you, or is it over the counter?

I've been using the Zia Cleanser and Night cream--I used to exfolliate daily, and I'm serious, my skin looks better now since I switched products.

Celia--About the coffee, do you think it's the coffee or that it's a hot beverage? Maybe the hot liquid relaxes your system. Just a thought.

Well, that's it for my 2 cents--carry on! :D B)

I was prescribed that cream for a condition I had on my legs. I cannot even imagine putting it on my face. I lasted two treatments, on my legs, before I threw it away. It literally was peeling the top layers of skin off and leaving the raw under layers exposed! If I were you I wouldn't put it on my face - what happens when you go out into the sun? Were you prescribed this?

It turns out the cream was irrelevant for me. I had something called perforating foliculitis - where the hair follicle grows out and then goes back in - it looked like I had zits all over my legs. There is no diffinitive way to treat it so my dermatiologist used me as a case study. We did 10 treatments of laser hair removal, from my ankles to my bikini line (can you believe he convinced my insurance to cover this??).

holy cow, did it work?

People DO use this cream (Tazorac) on their faces - been doing some research - - but I guess it is for SEVERE acne, and you know people will try anything for that. MIne isn't severe - - but I could see that this would give me a wh ole new SKIN if I used it for a few months.....but it's painful and difficult! It's a sample from a friend, who has what her derm initially called foliculitis, on her torso - - but it is not. I keep telling her, you're just getting OLD, and this is something that happens. She's been to the derm FOUR TIMES and now they think she is crazy.......as do I....... :lol:

Yes it did work, but did it make me hair free? NO!! And that's what I was excited about! :P I thought, wow, two birds - one stone. But I am a hormonal nightmare...nature does not want me to be hair free.

Now if you are losing layer after layer of skin I think you have your answer - you have to stop. Have you been to the dermatologist? Is there anything homeopathic that might work? As others said, you are beautiful as you are, but we women are vain - so I can understand your need to have flawless skin! I'm nearly 30 and still buy Clearasil!

Wait until you hit your 40's - - you kind of WANT to lose layer after layer.... :o and that's actually what this cream, and retinols, are designed to do. I do know that if you can get through the first 3 - 6 months they are highly effective and new skin results. Just not so great in teh beginning, though.

Andrea... you sweet thing...hope all is well with you today.


I'm ok......zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Just got an email from my oldest stepson. He wants us to come to Olympia tomorrow for a goodbye party his mother is throwing at a park up there. Very late notice for one, no one gluten-free but us, all sorts of gluten hands handling Seth not to mention the other two. Was planning on going to Olympia next weekend to see my mom since she was just here babysitting for me yesterday. Chris and wife are moving to eastern washington so who knows when Talitha and Micah would have a chance to see them again. Not that that is that far, but we hardly see them at all now and they are only a couple hours away. Now we've got to decide if we want to spend the $25 gas to go up this weekend and another $25 to go up next weekend. We are on a super sonic short budget this month too. I'll see what hubby wants to do when he gets home. My eating (not) yesterday is probably contributing to me being tired. Licking envelopes today probably didn't help either. That's ok...I'll probably perk up once the kids are in bed. :P :lol: It's amazing what a peaceful, quiet house can do to ones spirits.

The kids are watching our wedding video. Sound is good, picture is awful. The guy we asked to video had lousy eyesight and didn't know the auto focus wasn't working. He said it was a perfect wedding, even started on time to the minute, so other than that video we can't complain.
