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

right before my appt. with the GI to get my results I had a HUGE avocado sandwich from the Atlanta Bread Company on sourdough bread. OMG it was so yummy.

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.

    • Daughter with celiac- need test result help
      Thanks so much for your reply and the encouragement! She has not had the dgp test. I will ask her doctor at the next appointment in two weeks. Her doctor is out of the country now for a family emergency so I can't talk to her before her appointment. Her thyroid is good. The whole thing has been tough - logistically dealing with the dietary change and how extremely careful we have to be. Emotionally - worrying about her health and her feelings about all of this. I'm happy her number came down so much. There's hope. I'm just praying there's not more wrong and trying to prevent any possible risk of cross contamination. It seems she's very sensitive. It's also tough she's a kid at school with gluten on every surface.

      Wonderful news to hear that he has finally had his testing done, and can go gluten free. I understand that he is afraid of needles. Most children are. It is great that the hospital have acknowledged his and your family's suffering. Hopefully now they will give him the A1 treatment that he deserves. I am really looking forward to hearing of his improvement, as no doubt he will come along in leaps and bounds. Children are remarkably resilient, and with any luck he will enjoy a healthy and bright future with adherence to his required diet. Way to go Mum, you have been through a lot, watching your boy suffer. I hope that you are handsomely rewarded with being able to watch him flourish now. Good luck with your older boy too. Keep us posted.

      Well thank goodness the gluten eating is over for him now & he can begin the journey back to good health! Poor fella. He was so sick! Just a heads up --- he isn't going to feel better instantly but at least he's a kid & they heal faster as a general rule. Bone broth!!!! Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy mom! That's really going to help him!   Do I recall correctly that you still have the 17 yr. old to go through testing yet?

      Hi Richard Glad you are feeling better!   Sorry - DX is an abbreviation for diagnosis.   Thanks so much  for the info about MSG, broccoli and IBS.  Like you say, there is v. little bad press about broccoli. My aunt, who is a farmer's wife, put forward another theory that it might not have been the broccoli itself but rather some insecticide a farmer sprayed on it.   I just can't bring myself to try organic broccoli however...  Thankfully cauliflower is fine.  I just can't figure it out as I thought they were the in the same vegetable family?  So maybe it is MSG. Regarding anemia, there can be a link with iron anemia and anxiety. http://www.livestrong.com/article/471225-iron-anxiety/ And I was definitely breathless before my diagnosis; I remember finding myself  walking up a hill behind a  huge crowd of friends on a church walk, and many of them were at least 20 years older than me, and wondering why I was in last place! My B12 levels were very low at DX and I found B12 supplements helped enormously with anxiety.   I remember drinking Berroca and feeling so much better within hours of drinking it, on more than one occasion, before even understanding the link. I have just been told however that I can't take any more iron because my hemoglobin is on the high side.  It is a good thing my doctor was monitoring my supplementation as I gather too much iron can be dangerous.  Have you been told to supplement by your doctor?  If you are supplementing make sure you get your levels monitored. All the very best - and welcome to the forum!

      Thank  you Flowerqueen and Cristiana for your replies. I'm actually feeling much better today. I got my appetite back yesterday lunchtime (a few hours after I typed the original post) and managed to keep in/hold down some chicken and lettuce!!! I also had a "fat" coffee (as I call it) before work with MCT Oil and butter (your probably going "yuk" right now but it's really nice...really haha) and started feeling a bit better after that. The nausea went away almost immediately after that although just the thought of having all that fat nearly made me sick but I just wanted to get back to normal asap. I usually have a lot of fat in my diet anyway which is normal for me so the coffee choice isn't unusual. Plus it was also the third day which was when I started feeling better after the first time. I didn't eat til lunchtime and I was good and hungry by then so I knew I was coming out of it. That nausea and trembling feeling is something I don't want ever again. I think after the workout and tearing down muscle tissue (which is a form of stress) and then not being able to hold the nutrients in for repair affected my nervous system. My theory only but to me it makes sense. Although Vitargo also comes in flavors I always get the Natural / Unflavored one so the barley is the only ingredient. As for there being something wrong with that particular batch, well, you be on to something there. Also I'm not knocking the product because as I said, I have used it before and it did exactly what it was supposed to do. But, I will never have it again. Cristiana, my last blood test revealed I had slight anaemia which really surprised me with the amount of red meat I've eaten during my life and the anxiety thing is also new as I'm usually a happy, positive person. Life is good but after this recent reaction I think it is an indirect cause of the glutening. I'm also surprised at how sensitive I've become to it and how quickly. Also what is DX? I also follow a FODMAP eating plan (I can give you more info if you haven't heard of it) which also eliminates certain foods. It's a plan directed mostly at IBS but is well worth looking into if you are suffering any gut health, digestion issues or any ailment you may have which you can't get to the bottom of. Broccoli was one of the foods which I have cut back on and I've eaten HUGE amounts of broccoli so it is a superfood for some but apparently not for others. (I even think I read somewhere it has MSG naturally in it) It's hard to find any bad articles on broccoli so this also really surprised me. It also answered a few other questions I had. Many, many thanks again to you both for your replies. It actually settled me just reading them. I'm glad I found these forums so I don't think i'll be a stranger around here for long.   Richard

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
