We urge all doctors to take time to listen to your patients.. don't "isolate" symptoms but look at the whole spectrum. If a patient tells you s/he feels as if s/he's falling apart and "nothing seems to be working properly", chances are s/he's right!

Because celiac disease is hereditary, family members--particularly first-degree relatives--of people who have been diagnosed should be tested for the disease. About 10 percent of an affected person's first-degree relatives (parents, siblings, or children) will also have the disease. The longer a person goes undiagnosed and untreated, the greater the chance of developing malnutrition and other complications. We advocate people with celiac disease should have annual monitoring of serologies. Family members should be screened with serologies every three to five years.
We invite you to join us and take advantage of this important opportunity to be screened for celiac disease. Registration for the Celiac Disease Centerís Family Screening Fair will begin the week of February 10, 2005 at www.celiacdiseasecenter.columbia.edu. The registration fee includes screening for celiac disease, test results, educational sessions, entertainment for children, cooking classes for teens, vendor exhibits and food sampling.
For additional information about this event, please contact Cynthia Beckman, Director of Development, at email@example.com or (212) 342-4529

If you register, you have the option to do the blood screening, for which you need to pick a time frame, such as 8:00-8:15, 8:15-8:30, etc. in which you would like to do the test. I'm not getting tested, obviously, but I'm doing the other option you need to sign up for, the "teen cooking" thing, which you also need to pick a time for: a morning one or an afternoon one at 2:30. Then there are people talking throughout the day--you listen to whichever talks you want and they have a Q and A section after each...lecture? speech? whatever they call it.
To answer your question--simply, get as many people from your family tested as you want--or none.....

If your sister is on a nearly gluten-free diet, though, she probably won't get accurate blood results, but I guess if it comes free with going to the event and it only takes a few minutes, it can't hurt.

I really need you guys now! I am soooooooooo sick. I have been officially glutenized to the max! I am going to post a new topic just to keep things straight...but the bottom line is I bought a whole rotisserie chicken in Wegman's and am deathly ill from it! I spent an hour crying in the bathroom and feeling like I was poisoned! My gut is raw and painful and distended. I am in AGONY!
I had this same chicken at this same Wegman's 3 weeks ago and did not get sick. I specifically went to this store . the label said whole chicken...nothing else...no added ingredient. . I spoke with the cook and she said nothing was added............. I walked out of a different store that I had gone to before this store because the chicken they had was full of "bad" ingredients!
I am getting worse! I just flew in last night and was still suffering from the Lays Potatoe chips and now this. I did NOT eat on the airplane and had a banana for breakfast....so that wasn't it. I ate the chicken and immediately got sick.......... I had a baked sweet potatoe with it but it wasn't that. I microwaved it myself so it couldn't be that. I ate nothing else! it's not 7 hours later and haven't been able to eat. I feel so ill........
If my stove would have been connected this might not have happened. I had workers in my house during the week and the kitchen should have been in order. I get here only to find my stove in my dining room along with my frig. The ony place that I felt safe to go to was Wegman's and now this. The workers are back tomorrow at 8:00am to do the floors in the kitchen. After that I will have my kitchen back.
So much for a smooth move! I should have stayed in Florida. I am so depressed and still in so much pain.
Help! I thought about slitting my wrists today. I can't do this anymore!
I have so much to do this week and just want to lay down and rest. Make the world go away!
I'll have to call my new GI and move my appt up. At this point he might as well do the biopsy that I've been avoiding............I really need to be sedated (just to get some rest)....even if for a little while. Maybe I won't wake up ...won't that be an added bonus.
So much for putting this in another post. I got it all out right here.
oK.the migraine is setting in and I don't know how I will be able to sleep from this pain..........I dare not even take anything for it.
10 years of abdominal problems, incorrectly diagnosed with Endometriosis / suffered 7 surgeries. Total hysterectomy 2 years ago!
Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, Interstitial Cystitis ,IBS, Migraines, Primary Immune Deficiency to name a few. Finally realizing that food intolerances make them all worse!

Hang in there. I know how you are feeling. I just spent the last hour crying on the phone to my mom because I have been feeling so sh*tty.
I had to go on a four day field trip with my college class and I accidently got gluten the day before and I had the worse reaction while I was on the trip. It is so <i>not</i> fun to be out in the field doing research and suddenly need to use the bathroom for like four hours. I know what you mean when you say you feeling like slitting your wrists. But believe me, that's not the solution.
Just hang in there. It's so hard sometimes (actually ALOT of the time). I often feel like I just can't win but you just gotta keep putting one foot infront of the other.
