So here is my first "in need" post on this thread:

My son's friend Noah, age 8 1/2, is STILL in terrible trouble.

He has been in a medically induced coma since Labor Day because of encephalitis-caused seizures. The latest cat scans show extensive brain damage. They are still unable to bring him out of the coma without further seizures.

I am not sure what to ask for here--maybe visualizing his brain tissue recovering against all odds? Seizures ending? His opening his eyes, smiling, and hugging his parents?

Prayers?

Our family--and our whole community--is heartbroken. And that's gotta be nothing compared to what his family is going through.

Thanks, everybody.

Judy,

It's a thread devoted to those in need of support.

Alison,

I'm sorry to hear about Noah still not doing well. I'll let my family know about him too.

Alison, I will pray for Noah right now.

I could sure use prayer. Things are deteriorating here at home, it is getting unbearable for Susie and me.

Her vice principal in charge of her at school is a complete jerk, and her and my husband are getting to be great buddies, which is very upsetting to Susie and me. They seem to be doing everything they can to make life miserable for Susie, who doesn't deserve that, she is a sweet kid.

I am glad that she is going to move to live with her older sister and her family in February (our second-oldest, ten years older than Susie), for her sake. But her being gone will make things harder for me.

Anyway, I won't go into more detail than that. But I am at the end of my rope.

Sorry things are so frustrating, Ursa.

I don't suppose it would help if Susie were to smile and pretend to agree with your husband and the vice principal? Just until February? Sort of as a survival thing...

Anyway, prayers sent!

    • I am sorry that you are sick!   Unfortunately, all celiac testing requires you to be on gluten.  😔.   Testing is usually not over until you get an actual diagnosis, but it appears that you may very well have celiac disease.    Here is more information: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ http://theceliacmd.com/2015/06/six-reasons-to-test-for-celiac-disease-before-starting-a-gluten-free-diet-3/ in the meantime, you can eliminate dairy products temporarily.  It may provide some relief.  
    • Karen, the iodine test was a test for DH used in the 'olden' days. Iodine would be swabbed onto a spot and then it would be covered with a bandage. If someone had DH the iodined area would break out in lesions. I don't know how but we do know iodine can activate the antibodies. That is why some of us with DH have to avoid iodine in foods until the antibodies have cleared the dermis. OP, if you haven't been tested for celiac you should be and if you have active lesions a biopsy done next to a lesion by a DH knowledgable dermatologist may help in diagnosis.

    • 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!!
