Wedding Weekend A Great Success!
0

3 posts in this topic

As I posted last week, my niece's wedding was this past weekend. I decided since only being newly diagnosed that I would bring my own food. First event was the rehearsal dinner on Friday night, I made myself delicious soup and gluten-free cookie for dessert, so yummy!!! Then Saturday the big day, I was a little nervous however the caterer was very nice when I explained my situation, (even though he really didnt know about Celiac.) I prepared gluten-free penne pasta with a light tomato sauce, fruit salad, and a decadent chocolate chunk cookie for dessert. One of my good friends knowing that I was feeling out of place decided that she would also eat with me so that I didnt feel so alone. So here we came to the table with our seperate meals out to our table, we did get some strange looks from people but didnt care at all as our food smelled so good. The best part of the evening is that the food from the caterer wasnt all that great my dad and husband both said the meat and potatoes were very dry tasting, so they ended up eating some of my food!!!

So to sum it all up I had a delicious healthy meal, I felt great, and the best part was that I got to dance with my handsome husband and enjoy the evening. Thank you to everyone who gave and advice and support. :)

That's absolutely wonderful. Congratulations to your niece and her new husband and to you on your eating success! YAY! It's always nice to hear about the times when things go well. Gives me hope when I'm in the middle of a reaction and feeling like crud. I like being reminded of happy times to come.

Hooray Bonnie Blue!

I am so happy the weekend event turned out to be a true celebration!

Such a great feeling when we overcome our fears. But never let your guard down - that gluten is out there just waiting for us to relax! ;)

    • I would suggest you test your daughter through a doctor. The Enterolab tests are not recognized as accurate or reliable by the medical profession. See this link from the Chicago Celiac Disease Center: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/why-dont-you-recognize-tests-stool-tests-or-otherwise-for-gluten-sensitivity-that-are-currently-available-through-companies-like-enterolab-or-cyrex/
    • Sorry.  Something is wonky with either my connection or celiac.com! Your results are not specific...borderline.    That is why your PCP should refer you to a GI for further celiac blood tests and a possible endoscopy.  I recognize the lab report form.  Kaiser?  If so, a PCP can not order a full celiac panel.  Only a GI can do so.  Why bother?  Because if you test like me, the TTG tests are always negative.  Request the EMA and the DGPS test via a GI.   Do not be fooled by a lack of abdominal symptoms.  I was only anemic -- no abdominal issues at all.  Constipation is a symptom.  Your PCP is thinking is just historical Classic celiac disease symptoms.   Please email your doctor for the referral if you think you might have celiac disease and want a solid answer.    
    • Hello, I have frequent canker sores (roughly comes back every couple of months). Some blood test results are as following. Component Your Value Standard Range TISSUE TRANSGLUTAMINASE IgG 0.31 Index <=0.90 Index Tissue transglutaminase IgA 0.96 Index <=0.90 Index My doctor said that result is unspecific, and I unlikely have celiac disease, since I do not have other abdominal symptoms. For reference, I do have frequent constipation, excessive gas, frequent canker sore, etc. Do you think an upper endoscopy is recommended? I am a little hesitate considering the risk of this procedure and the fact that my symptoms are not that bad. I appreciate all suggestions.  
    • Hello, I see you posted this a long while ago, and perhaps--I hope-- it's no longer a matter of concern, but I thought I'd mention that shortly before I was diagnosed for celiac's, I had distinct yellow blotches on the corners of my eyelids toward my nose. Some months after I had stopped eating gluten, the yellow gradually went away, and--as it just reappeared now several years later, I googled the issue again.  I am only speculating here, but I do believe it is related to liver problems, which, in turn, are related to celiac's. I don't think liver function tests cover all aspects of liver health. I say this because when I was pregnant I developed a temporary liver condition called interhepatic colestasis of pregnancy (ICP), but my liver function tests had been fine. (The condition is diagnosed based on bile levels in the blood, not on liver function). I discovered upon some research that (of course!) ICP  can be associated with celiac's disease.  My hunch is this-- that celiac's presents two problems to the liver: 1) the malabsorption of nutrients--esp. Vit. K2-- that are vital liver health; 2) since gluten registers as a toxin to the immune system (I think?), perhaps the liver gets overloaded processing so much toxic material. Or perhaps there's some other reason. At any rate, poor liver health and celiac's do seem to be linked, according to a few articles I've found. Anyway, hope your problems are resolved now.
