Just Got Diagnosed Now What

5 posts in this topic

Hi all, I have read a lot of your post and I thnak you all for the imformation I have read. It's been very helpfull.

I lost almost 30 pounds in a matter of 3 months. I could not figure out what was wrong with me. I was eating donuts every morning and pizza every day. I should have been the size of a house. I finally broke down and saw the DR. I got the diagnosis today. I'm a celiac. Holy cow a what!!!!!! :o:o

I just opened my own pizza shop 2 months ago. :angry: I was eating all of our types of pizza so I knew what I was selling. BIG mistake. The over indulgance of pizza made me lose weight. What a concept! Now I'm only 104 pounds and look anorexic, i'm completely unhealthy. I started eating everything to make me gain weight. That backfired too. Everything I was eating was reversing the weight. Lesson learned.

So now that I have this CS where do I go from here? It's going todrive me crazy not being able to eat my own pizza.

If anybody has a good gluten-free pizza crust recipe I could use it.

:( sorry Christy, to be giving more info you wont want to hear, but you are going to have to be very careful in your pizza shop--airborn flour is as bad for us as eating it--we can get very sick just by breathing too much flour in--my sister became very ill when making her kids rolled out sugar cookies--you may need to check further into this--sorry, deb

There's a bakery (that does all the baking for it's 3 restaurants and other area retailers) near my kids' gymnastics studio that has a great latte... Well, every time I go in there I get sores in my nose. They're totally annoying, but I haven't had any of my other glutened reactions, not even the headaches. It may be you'll be fine. Wear a face mask when mixing doughs?

You might want to contact the baker for Wholefoods that has just started a gluten-free baking (factory?) for the chain. In the bio I read about him, he worked in the regular bakery, with celiac disease, for well over a decade. You can ask him how he handled the flour in the air, if it even bothered him.

Now, you do realize your business will very popular with this group, don't you? Find a good gluten-free pizza crust, let your area know you have it, and you'll have every celiac/wheat allergy individual frequenting your place in no time! (For a gluten-free pizza crust I use the recipe for Crumpets from Bette Hagman's "More from the Gluten Free Gourmet." One recipe makes a large round pizza pan worth. I bake it a bit before topping, top and rebake. My kids really like it.)

Christy- I just wanted to say I am so sorry. WOW opening a pizza shop to find out you have celiac.

I agree be careful with the airborne flour. And let us know where you are, so when you find that perfect crust we can eat, we can come by and have some. :) Boy I miss pizza

    • I'm actually scared to go to the doctor and could use some advice
      I finally found out my gluten issues right after I left a very stressful job and could no longer function I was so ill. Symptoms had gone on for decades before, but it took a moment of stress to bring it to a head. I had anxiety gerd and the irregular heartbeat and I had a nasty bout of shingles when I was 20 which I've subsequently realised was due to my compromised immune system.  Shingles follows a particular nerve  around the body which is probably why Cristiana's dr suspected it. I had it from the front right of torso moving around to my back. The pain you describe is similar to how shingles felt before the blisters arrived, it starts with the skin feeling very tender as if it's been burnt. Maybe you're getting the forerunner to it and your body is successfully stopping it progressing? Ah, enough amateur doctoring from me! I hope you get the answers you need and are soon on the way to recovery. Sending you best wishes.
    • Amaranth and Quinoa: Pseudo-cereal Super Foods
      My latest obsession is creating new quinoa recipes, since my eight year old daughter absolutely loves it! Her favorite is warm quinoa with crumbled turkey sausage, broccoli, and lots of cumin. She also loves it with oil and balsamic vinegar. I like it cold with chopped veggies, garlic, and fresh squeezed lemon juice. View the full article

    • Mexican?
      Chipotle is one of my favorite places to eat, but it is a 50/50 chance of having a reaction due to cross-contamination.  Yes, they graciously make an effort to be gluten-free and will change gloves.  BUT, before that they used gloves and handled flour tortillas and then used same gloves to reach into the lettuce and cheese--voila--cross-contaminated food.  Changing gloves for you does not avoid this cross-contamination problem.  I started having reactions and my daughter advised me to avoid all the corn products there because of what she read on their website about allergens--so no more chips, or crispy taco shells, or corn.  I also avoid the green salsa and the pico de gallo--not that I am aware of cross contamination but she never eats that there and she has been successful at not having reactions, so that is what I do now and have had much success. Here is what I get:   burrito bowl with either white or brown cilantro lime rice, grilled veggies, black beans, barbacoa, red salsa, cheese, sour cream, guacamole, and lettuce on top.  So GOOD! and so far, safe for me.
    • I'm actually scared to go to the doctor and could use some advice
      Hi Elle.   To be honest, to this day I am not sure if I actually had zoster sine herpete.  It was one of several suggestions by bewildered doctors.  What I can tell you is that I had to have MRIs  because one doctor thought I might have trapped nerve in my spine and I thought it would reveal something dreadful being the sort of person who gets weird nerve sensations - and it didn't reveal a thing.   It was unsettling to have symptoms like that for so long but what made me think my brother in law might have been right was because the worst of the symptoms lasted a year which I gather is pretty typical (but don't panic, because they can go a lot faster!)   My nutritionalist told me that if we get run down we are more prone to shingles so that is something to watch. Easy to say (and I'm speaking to myself here!) try not to spend too much time by yourself worrying about these things because anxiety never helps with nerve pain. I found that rest was very beneficial so I would recommend you try to get as much of that as you can.  Also, someone suggested a warm bath for 20 minutes with some Epsom salts.  That helped too. As I say, just one reason you might be getting this pain but I would continue with the investigations and perhaps mention the pain to your doctor and ask if it could be shingles.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
