I have to give credit to Erratic - -she mentioned animal crackers as her last "gluten" item she intentionally ate.

What was the last Gluten-Item you INTENTIONALLY ate?

For me, it was a mug full of beer. Around the summer of 1998 at Ohio State...it was wonderful, for a few hours... :o

Believe it or not, right after my endoscopy (when my dr. told me I probably had Celiac) I went home and ate a Thomas' english muffin. I had never heard of Celiac and I thought he was crazy!

I'm not certain if this is it or not but it's when I finally knew it was the problem. We were just about to tear out our kitchen as the pipes in the 60 year old walls had rusted through and flooded the place. I was excited because I had just discovered a pizza parlor nearby that made pizza on whole wheat crust and as a hypoglycemic, I thought this would be an acceptable "take out" meal that we'd probably be ordering a couple of times a week through the remodel. So we got a pie and had some friends over (had a two for one coupon) and I pigged out. The next day I felt terrible. That's when wheat and I finally decided to part ways...

PS in case you're curious, I survived mainly on Annie's Rice Pasta Mac and Cheese (found it for $.99 each at the Grocery Outlet! Score!!!), quinoa flakes cereal, and canned tuna... oh it was SOOOOO great to have a kitchen again!!!

The last thing I intentionally ate with gluten? Hold your stomachs and cover your mouths, 'cause it was my test item: yogurt with a tablespoon of vital wheat gluten in it. It certainly worked as a test, alright!

It was a piece of pizza(my favorite food has always been pizza)and 1 bite of a cupcake...I threw the rest of the cupcake out it didn't even taste like I was expecting it...I guess my mind was making it up to be something it was not...I had a little voice in the back of my head saying "your going to regret this" so i didn't really enjoy it because I knew I would pay with damage and symptoms . I didn't feel so hot after eating it either.

The first day that I saw the GI in November 2004 and he was almost certain that I had celiac disease he told me to start the Gluten Free Diet right away. That night we were planning on making homemade pizzas for dinner and there was no way I was missing out on my homemade pizza. I felt the effects the rest of the night and the next day when I started the diet.

Those were funny. Mine was half a cheese sandwich. The funny thing was it didn't taste as good as I remembered!

Before I found out I had celiac I just thought I was "allergic" to wheat. So, one weekend the family was going to be away, and I had a small meat lovers pizza and cookies and cream ice cream! But, as others have said, it didn't taste like I had remembered it tasting. THEN I found out later that I had celiac disease... I have NEVER intentionally eaten gluten since. When you find out it could kill you... it kind of takes the fun out of it!! :(

I did not know I was celiac disease. We thought it was just my daughter. I had been keeping the diet with her (only 11 at the time) as an encouragement so she wouldn't feel so out of place. She went off for a long weekend with the grandparents and the rest of us pigged out...homemade wheat bread, pizza, blueberry muffins, cookies, the whole nine yards. I was broken out, itching, and all the usual gastro stuff. Whent to the doctor by Monday and never ever wanted to do that again. It took months for all the DH spots to finally clear. I am left with a body full of scarring to remind me why I don't eat gluten.

And now you are probably going to ask "What is an Autobot?" The Autobots are the good Transformer robots and the Decepticons are the evil robots. My son is a big fan and I was into them when I was his age. :o

Mine was an Amstel light. Because somebody on this message board ;) told me the European celiacs could have it, because it's glutenfree. Well, it's not. I felt it the next day.

Thanks Ian. My son played with transformers. I just didn't remember the names.

I thought maybe you were going to run for president. A celiac president, that would be a wonderful thing. I have read there is some thought that JFK had celiac, but they really didn't know about it then. I would like someone really famous to have it and bring more awareness to this. Guess I went on too long.

    • Where do I start??
      I will be going for my endoscopy on Februry 19. The other day in reading about Celiacs, I read about the strange rashes often associated with celieacs and gluten intolerrance. About six months ago, a rash exactly as you describe showed up on the backs of my knees. The doctor didn't know what it was, hought maybe it was ringworm, and gave me some topical medicine, and the spots did go away with time. However, I've had the same type of spots show up in other places occassionally. I know for a fact they were not ringworm.
    • Advice on reintroducing dairy.
      I can!   Start with hard cheeses, then yogurt/butter, soft cheeses and finally milk/cream.  Start slowly and build.  Give yourself time to get your body to release the enzymes necessary to digest lactose.  Certified gluten-free enzymes for lactose can help the transition.  Lactose free milk and ice cream are helpful too.  Remember, that genetically some of us are predisposed to being lactose intolerant no matter what (e.g. aging, race).   I wish you success!      
    • Gluten free diet, positive celiac screen...what should I eat now?
      Here is a link that explains why you should get tested (completely) for celiac disease: https://celiac.org/celiac-disease/diagnosing-celiac-disease/diagnosis/ As far as the link to the functional doctor....why?  If you get a celiac diagnosis, chances are you will heal on a gluten free diet.  As you have probably seen on this forum, most of us encourage newly diagnosed members to eat a whole-foods, easy-to-digest (a.k.a "cooked to death")  gluten-free diet to speed healing.  Going Paleo might not be the best right now, if you have celiac disease.  Eating lots of nuts, raw fruits and veggies can be tough on a damaged gut.  You can try that diet later!   Everyone is different due to various degrees of damage, so some may have temporary intolerances  (e.g. lactose).  You just have to experiment.   Save your money and spend it on good wholesome food.  I heartily support getting away from the SAD (Standard American Diet).   Celiac disease is the one autoimmune disorder that is healed by avoiding a food -- gluten!  
    • Itchy skin
      I have DH and itchy skin is a symptom.     Your Dermatologist could write a script for Dapsone, provided you're not allergic to Sulphur.     Expect blood labs to go with using Dapsone.      You need to study everything that goes in your mouth for possible gluten content, including all meds.
    • Advice on reintroducing dairy.
      Hello,  I am currently 20 months, 1 day gluten-free. I stopped consuming dairy a few weeks after going gluten-free when I realized I was having lingering symptoms. Since going gluten-free dairy-free each day has been a day closer to feeling like my old self. As a child never had any issues with gluten or dairy. It wasn't until a year before my blood test/endoscopy that I began getting sick or noticing any issues. Diaherria, nausea, abdominal pain like I ate a sparkler, shaking and trembling. My whole experience before going gluten free was a nightmare. That year I lived in fear of leaving my home because I would be so sick and restroom hopping and uncomfortable at work. As of now, I m doing much better. I can tolerate things I couldn't following my diagnosis... Orange juice, coffee, salsa... And have gained 10 pounds back. I do miss cheese dearly but am afraid to try and see if I can tolerate dairy again. Is there anyone who can give any advice about reintroducing dairy? When is the best time to try? Should I wait I until I hit my 2 year mark? Any advice, successful or unsuccessful stories would be much appreciated so I can decide what the next step is for me... Or if I will even make a step. That ks in advance. ~Nora.
