FaithInScienceToo-Yes I can see how you made your decision. Your reasons make sense and if you want to go for it. They need to be alerted somehow on what not to give you.

How was the day with your 4 year old niece? Little kids are so cute :D

Talk to you all later :D

I wear my medic alert everywhere because I am bery high compeditave in soccer, and if it is an away game, and my parents aren't there, and I get hurt,(which has happened...) I would make sure that everyone knew what i could/couldn't have, and if I can't talk, then the bracelet is a way of conveying it to them

I see your point, but I would think that if something really bad happens to you, you want people to give you whatever you need to get better--then you can deal with a gluten reaction.

Hi Faith,

Welcome to the board and good luck to you! I have a lot of the same intolerances and soy is a definate NO. I had the York allergy testing done which helped me to fine tune what I should be watching..It's still a challenge though and I have slips.

Eggs came up the strongest in so far as allergies and those seem to have been what I reacted a lot to! Milk also kills me. So....what I'm saying is that you could have a lot of other intolerances as a results of your celiac disease.

I recently started estrogen replacement (vivelle dot) and it has helped so mcuh with the night sweats and migraines....That could be part of your problem as you are perimenapausal. I had a total hysterectomy 2 years ago and was never put on any estrogen. It only messed me up more. So....I am fising one thing at a time.

Keep us posted as to how you are doing! Good luck with your new love interest too!

That in itself could be exciting!

Happy Sunday, all:

Thanks for the new posts, and continued warm welcomes!

I SO enjoy hearing your stories...reading your recollections of 'the bad stuff' makes me feel 'not so alone'...but, I most enjoy hearing of your triumphs!

"We, go, girls!" :) oops...and guys, too, 'out there' in cyber space....

Kaiti...thanks for asking about my day yesterday with my 4-year-old niece, Anna...

It was fun. I first took her to visit her "Nana and Poppy" - my folks (ages 76)...we brought Valentine's flowers and a balloon with love birds on it to them...

and then we went to one of my Bros and his family, so that she could play with my other little niece, Sarah, who is 3 years old. When we first arrived, my sis-in-law had to feed the baby, and my bro went out to buy pizza (luckily, I brought alone food I could eat)...so, I played soccer with the girls, and chase, of course...Having 2 little kids chase me around the backyard was a joy...

In the car on the way to my folks' house (a 50 minute drive) Anna and I talked about the various holidays that occur throught the year. She enjoyed trying to remember the order they come in...When I got to Memorial Day...well, it was, of course, the hardest 'holiday' to discuss...She had a lot of questions about war...I ended that part of our talk with, "I only hope that when you and the other little children grow up, we, and all of the other coutries in the world, won't be starting any more wars..."

Ugh...guess I'm back to 'politics'...didn't mean to...but, that was the 'most poignant' part of the day with my dear niece, so sharing it seems appropriate...

I most enjoy teaching her about love...at every opportunity I can.

Thanks for asking, Kaiti.

and....Thanks, everyone, for 'being there' -

Gina

Just wondered...do some people on here contact each other 'off the board?'

Via e-mail...for more personal support?

Just curious -

I do--I periodically e-mail/PM 3-4 people from the board, and exchange frequent e-mails/IMs with one person from here....I think I've made a few good friends so far-- :)

I've gotten a couple emails, maybe a dozen or two in the year I've been here. Nothing particularly regular, myself, but that's pretty standard for me.

Mariposa Brownies -- the triple chocolate truffle -- are bar none the ABSOLUTE BEST gluten-free brownie/baked good I have tasted. You could serve them to non-gluten-free people and they's NEVER know the difference.

I am on my second order from Mariposa. They are high quality gourment, as reflected by the price, but soooo worth it!!! I have tried the mixes and some store bought brownies like Crave Bakery in SF and NOTHING is even close to the Mariposa. I think the trick is they do not use a lot of flour so they are super mosit.

I am so happy I have discovered Mariposa Brownies!!!

    • 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!
