Burdee, Thank you for your run-down of things you do to facilitate recovery. I have spent alot of computer time lately trying to find your post of July 31. I finally discovered that there was another page to that thread. I have been on the diet for 3 and a half weeks now. Was pretty good the first three weeks, but have company this week. It is harder to keep legal when working with company food. There are many foods that are legal on Elaine Gottshalk's diet that I don't usually tolerate: The tomato potato family and cheeses, though I am trying some of the hard cheeses allowed on this diet. Actually, my lactose free diet does allow aged cheeses. Would be good to be able to include some of these for calcium. I have quit taking gas medicine and so far am not having any huge trouble. I've written the Family Pharmacy about their anti gas product. They forwarded my letter to the manufacturer, so I should get an answer soon. These are less expensive than the Phazyme. They do produce a burst of gas soon after taking them.

I wonder where one can purchase the acidophilus you recommend and the digestive enzymes.

I do not bake very much unless I have company. My son and daughter-in-law are visiting me this week. I'm afraid I have weakened my resolve somewhat. I think you mentioned on another post that some of us may not need to be on the very strictest diet. I do not, so far, have trouble with passing on dessert at Ladies'Guild, but when I am baking and cooking different things at home, it is harder. I made a meatloaf from hamburger, eggs, brown rice and homemade chicken broth. I either put in too much broth or not enough rice so it made more of a hash than a loaf, There was also onion in it. It tasted good anyway. The rice is not allowed on the strict diet, but is on the one the dietician at my clinic gave me. I also am expermenting with soaked dry lima beans thoroughly cooked and then pureed in the blender to use for breakfast cereal. Mostly my normal diet consists of defatted (as far as possible) poultry, beef, pollock, salmon (canned), will try mackerel soon, vegetables and fruit. I do not usually eat many fruits except for bananas and cantalope. I buy overripe bananas, peel them, mash them up or leave them whole and freeze them. In summer they taste very good that way. Made banana bread this week out of regular flour and ate a slice. There was increased burning in my upper abdomen immediately after I ate it. Have had a couple of other "slips" My daughter-in-law is also recommending the weight lifting routine. I'm guessing I will need to get some instruction on this. Perhaps Mayo Clinic site will have a lesson on the technique. I know I got some exercises for my hands from there complete with photos. Thanks again for all your input. Ruth

    • 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!
