I'm newly diagnosed Celiac (as of 10/27/10). I happen to be a Reserve Deputy with the local Sheriff's Office. Someone had to point out that at least now I won't be distracted when I drive by a dounut shop!

Just in case you end up distracted because you long to stop in keep some Kinnickinnick doughnuts handy. :D

Welcome to the board. Ask any questions you need to and I hope you are feeling great soon.

Oh no, surrounded by potato heads and pumpkin heads!

Welcome to the site! You might want to avoid the Starbucks coffee too. There are some threads around discussing possible gluten in some versions of the lattes I think it was. I quit coffee and tea a while back so I don't remember what the issue was really. Starbucks was selling a gluten free snack cake for a while but then scrapped it and now I think they sell Lara bars or Kind bars, something like that. Probably the plain coffee is the safest choice if you like that yugly stuff.

Try a search on snack ideas and breakfast ideas in the search box on left top of site. There are several threads with good ideas for things you can take to work easily. Fruit is a good one for many people or hard boiled eggs.

Hmmm, hard fried pumpkin slices might be good too... Eh Karighnne? :D

I thought you were a mini pumpkin, Karen! :D

Good luck Guy C, and wish you very good health. I hope you won't miss the donuts too much.

Since you work on the road and may start packing your lunch, I've found that all hospital cafeterias have microwaves for employees to heat their lunches. Sometimes the hospital cafeterias have stuff that you can eat, too.

I had baked salmon with a whole baked sweet potato for $4.26 yesterday at a hospital cafeteria without consequences, and it was really good!

Could be interesting to have a Gluten Police Force documentary... :)

Both my brothers are Sheriffs. Welcome to the club you never wanted to join! Kinnikinnick donuts are good. I do second that recommendation.

Starbucks actually has several options they consider gluten free and they sell items in their store that are gluten free, a brand of cookies (but have Oats so I can't have them) and some other options. Certain lattes and other drinks are not safe for celiacs but straight up coffee is fine. I am a pesonal fan of the peppermint hot chocolate and the green tea lemonade!

I've never had issues with my non-fat vanilla latte. I heard the sugar free was an issue...so, I just stick with my full sugar choice! :lol:

I'm a full sized pumpkin, Matey! Argggh!

How does it feel to get advice from a pumpkin with a Mr Potatohead face? I'm thinking you might not take me seriously. :)

Karen,

Arggh, I am sorry! I'm a vegetable farmer's daughter (onions), tend to be veggie focused and did not mean to be offensive. :huh:

Celiac Cop, I hope you have a good shift from the other side. It isn't always going to be easy, but it gets better!

    • I already did. Thats how i found the place. Its amazing to actually go to a restraunt again.
    • This is EXACTLY what happens to me. It has twice now and both times was after both glutening episodes but once it was the day after and the other time it was a week and a half. So I'm still not sure if it's related or strange bug bites...

      Did they stop happening when she stopped being glutened? Did you decide they were definitely related? I'm really confused by this and would love to know whether to insecticide my house or....
    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL
