hi i'm becca. i'm 14 and have had celiac for over a year now. pm me if you want my email, or just to talk. Right now I'm on a special diet for another disease i have, so all i can eat is formula (like the kind babies have-which i get through an ng tube cuz it tastes nasty :blink: ), cantelope, and potatoes. I was gluten free for a year before this diet and felt much better.

It doesn't always stink, but at times it seems that way. It's a way of life, that eventually you WILL get used to. If you have a craving for something that you can't have then eat something even better that you can have, even if it's not healthy it's healthier than having gluten. I don't really know what it's like to go from having gluten filled stuff to none at all but I do have a curiosity/ a want to try what everyone else is having. In kindergarten I took a goldfish cracker from someone ate it and was vomiting for ten days..this has happened many times unfortunately. Hope this helps!!!

Alli

Gluten free since I was 11 months old

positive blood test

positive biopsy

Okay well just wondering if this happened/happens to anyone else:

My parents had a middle with my teachers because they need to be aware that I have celiac. Thats FINE, BuT they are annoying about it, like I don't know what I can and can't have or I want to try something I know I can't have(well yah there are temptations but I can get over it!!!)...anyone else feel like you just want to be treated the same and have them still realize the situation..my parents don't have celiac and they don't understand. It's so frusterating!

I hate going to resuraunts with my mom.

First thing she does when the server comes is jumps on them with "No Gluten and this and that"

Its annoying and embarrassing.

Especially because I'm not 5. I can tell the server my needs and ask questions.

She doesn't have Celiac either.

I'm the only one in my immediate family...

>.<

Hi, another celiac here new to the forums :P

I was diagnosed at 14 months of age, and now I'm 16 and well.

@Alli. My parents also informed my old school I was celiac, mainly because I entered when I was 10 years, and still not completely aware of what I was allergic of. But after that one time, my parents had no more contact with the school regarding being celiac.

When I used to go to camps or such, my mum would always enter and explain things. It could be a bit irritating at times, but I just accepted it.

The main issue here is trust. If you can show your parents that you can uphold your diet they will start trusting you. For these last two years, any camp / dinner I went to, I ordered for myself because now they know that I know my condition better than they do (since I'm the only celiac in my family. Well my father is slightly intolerant but he still takes gluten).

Also, as for completely emotional. Yes, I do. It's called being a teenager. :P Everyone passes through such days at our age. We just have something to blame it on (even though it might not be directly influential.)

@CranberryThief. Give them a few months to understand that you can handle it on yourself. They'll start backing off slowly themselves. :)

Also, Aim / MSN / Y!IM should be in my profile. Anyone feel free to hit me up. I tend to suffer from boredom a bit :D

Yea, i know what you mean, i was glutened in school(accidently) and i tried telling the receptionist and she just kept asking questions, then told me i couldnt possibly be having a reaction that quickly (i dont think shes ever seen a reaction of any type). She told me to go to lesson and see the teacher if i still felt ill. which i did, lucky for me my welsh teacher's father has coeliac and after telling me to read the label more carefully she let me go home. (In my defence the label had sutible for coeliacs on it). Most of my teachers have actually been ok, even though last year i always seemed to be missing physics to have bloods done. When i explained why to the same teacher earlier this year, i found that she already knew. (My form tutor had told her the night before, we were on a camping trip). But yea, sometimes i wish the teachers didnt know because that way they wouldnt act like i cant speak for myself sometimes.

I understand too. It took my immediate family three years to get used to it but they're getting there! and yes, i get really emotional some days and can't figure it out! so does my twin. we're 17 and would love to talk to you guys. No one seems to want to listen to me when I need a friend, a best friend other than my sister whom I'm reallllly close to, to talk to so I stopped trying. It' ll be nice to share stories and minor frustrations with someone who truly understands! :D

Hi all. I am 23 ( a little older than most of you, however I don't feel always comfortable with the "adult" forums).

I was diagnosed with Celiac and Casein sensitivity since April 2008.

I would have to agree about going out to eat or being in public with family members, especially my mom and my soon to be mother in law. I love my mom to death....but she feels the need to announce to everyone around us that I am on a gluten-free diet! Personally, I would like not to have everyone else know at all times. It's none of their business, unless I bring it up, or they ask me. I don't have a problem talking about it....I just am always annoyed by the fact that other people decide to announce it for me. Does anyone else have that problem?

My soon to be mother in law has the tendency of buying lots of gluten free products for me (which is great, I don't have to buy them) however, most of the items are DISGUSTING! But, I am too shy (intimidated by her) to say otherwise, so I usually choke it down and smile :) Hopefully, I will get the courage to say something...sometime.

I know since I am older than some, I would love to talk about anything. Contact me anytime.

-Danielle

    • WOW.  That looks eerily familiar.  Last December the temporary provider here at my local (rural) clinic gave me doxycycline to experiment with, but it was a mere ten milligrams.  Lol, no wonder it didn't help!  I'm glad you're feeling better.
    • I got cross contaminated some time ago & the rash came back pretty badly. I've attached a photo taken on June 11th of my back. It was also in my scalp, around my neck, on my front, shoulders, inner wrists and more.   Tonight I am not itching at all! I haven't itched all day long!!!! I can't take Dapsone because I'm allergic to sulfa drugs & Dapsone is a sulfa drug. Obviously that means I also can't take any of the other sulfa drugs that are used to treat dh after Dapsone is not an option. After those comes tetracycline. I really needed some relief! I began researching the dosage & particulars on tetracycline for dh. Extensive & exhaustive research did not pan out. The best I could find was treating Bullous phemphigoid. That said something like 500mg of tetracycline 4 times per day and about an equal amount of niacinimide. I really didn't want to take that much medication and in such strong doses. So my doctor (my PC doc) & I began experimenting. We tried Doxycycline 100mg twice a day. It seemed to be helping some but it just wasn't enough. Then we upped it to 200mg Doxycycline twice per day. It has taken about 5 days of that & I sit here not itching all day for the first time in a long, long time! This may not work for everyone. I did want to post it though as it is, at present, working for me. I am not thrilled at taking it but I have toughed this rash out before for years with no meds and I just couldn't do it again.
    • I laughed out loud at the 'little notebook' comment!😂 It has been interesting to see how much progress has actually been made over the past 10 years that there is even a notebook to be offered or a restaurant to eat in that will accommodate our 'allergy'. 10 years ago I feared that I would never eat in a restaurant again.  But the notebook comment is spot on.  Hopefully within the next 10 years restaurants will evolve enough to offer us a menu that clearly lists the delicious and extensive offerings that they have lovingly prepared just for us...and not just an ingredient list with nutritional values that take longer to read than War and Peace.   I am grateful that there are places to go that at least make the effort.  Who knows?  Eventually there may be restaurants which will have to offer menus with GLUTEN options available!
    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back.
