I'm leery about the snickerdoodle and the cheesecake one...as those both typically have cookie elements to them and then they tell you to avoid the normal gluten (cookie) flavors!!

"so far a little improvement"

Hang in there....you will get better

but it will take a month or so,with

older people longer.

But it will come.... .

One thing to watch for is weight

gain,as your absorption comes back.

Take care!

I know this is an old thread, but since it is the first thing that pops up on a google search, I feel obligated to add that this information has absolutely changed.  My husband brought home a pint of Blue bell dutch chocolate ice cream for me tonight, and as I was taking my first few bites I discovered Flour(wheat) near the end of the ingredients list.  This is actually the first verifiable screw up I have had since I was diagnosed, and it is a vivid reminder that you always need to read every label, every time you put something in to your mouth.  My husband feels very bad for buying that, but I told him that it is ultimately my responsibility to police what goes into my mouth.  He still feels bad, lol.  I don't have info on other flavors, but watch your ingredients on blue bell ice cream, for sure. (Blue bell is a regional band based in Texas.)

LOL I was saying that exact phrase to my husband, he feels terrible about giving that to me.  Ah well, You live and learn!

    • yes, I was tested for it. They said after stomach surgeries and other major things causing that much stress on your body you can become intolerant to gluten. It happened to my aunt as well who was in a horrible car accident. They said you can always carry the gene in your body and having that much stress on your body can start it.
    • A new study confirms a link between intestinal viral infections and celiac disease. View the full article
    • Good luck with all the testing.  You are doing the right thing by telling your son to gluten up!  Buy him one of those gluteny cakes at a bakery...if that doesn't spike his numbers, nothing will. 
    • Thank you for this response! You are right, I'm sure. My sed rate was normal. My c reactive protein was 6, which is high. My platelets were a bit elevated and I was slightly anemic. I am going tomorrow for another endoscopy. I know that these things could be related to other things... but I'm thinking there is a change they are all still related to celiac (I'm hoping). What other autoimmune disease do you have, if you don't mind me asking?
    • HIV doesn't turn off the immune system, it destroys it to the point where most people die from complications that arise from having no immune system.  Some end up with pneumonia or cancer, which takes their life. It is pretty amazing the treatments they have developed for it, to slow it down and give people longer, quality time. I am perfectly content with the gluten free diet as my treatment and honestly, if they developed a pill that they claimed would make it possible for people to eat gluten again, I doubt I would. I could not bring myself to eat a food that I am genetically programmed to not be able to digest and that totally pisses off my immune system.  However, if they succeed with some of the meds they are working on now, one of which I posted about earlier this summer, I would take those.  They are working on things that modulate the immune system down so inflammation can be tamed down further.  Even with a strict gluten-free diet, there will always be more inflammation for us than for those who don't have AI diseases.  I do everything possible to tame it down myself but it isn't in the normal range.....yet. Long term inflammation can kill you so something along those lines would be welcome.  You would still have to eat gluten-free but the disease activity would be calmed down.  This is a drug that targets those with lupus and maybe Sjogren's....which I have.  There are possibilities for other AI diseases from that!
