Addy, I am so glad you had a fantastic day, what an amazing experience, you look fab. I can't get over that menu,, amazing.

Edited to add, I wonder if love2 could sort the rest of that menu out to be gluten-free too, just for the heck of it?!

My guess is that what is left of the menu would be easy. Glazed bananas should be idiot proof to make gluten free. Ditch the garlic bread, and frankly it isn't needed with that cheese bread. (I have got to find a recipe! My husband is begging me to learn to make it.) I don't know what those desserts are exactly, I did see someone getting chocolate cake. Meh. who wants chocolate cake when there is creme brulee? The chickens off the grill probably both have some sort of marinade easily made gluten free, my guess is soy sauce. My guess is the crab is imitation. (It was adorable though, they cut up a tomato on the back to look like a crab.) They didn't even have the raspberry dressing or strawberry salad last night... so just stop serving them! The pasta too. Fixed.

I didn't get sick though. Not gluten sick. Maybe a little overeating sick. :ph34r: I felt like I needed to be rolled out of there like the blueberry girl from Willy Wonka. (The original.)

Tonight. Tacos! I picked up a new taco seasoning to try. They have some interesting new ones at the store closest to home. My husband won't eat the ones I like, and I can't eat any of the simple mainstream ones because they all have either yeast or MSG and cost me my vision within 30 minutes. Scary stuff, taco seasoning. This new one is like a liquid in a pouch. Some lime/cilantro something or other, can't wait.

Thank you!! I like it so far even if it is a bit weird. Nice to be in good company. If you had told me a year ago I'd be so 'free from' I wouldn't have believed it.. You know that whole be careful what you wish for thing? I think I put in an order for a healthier diet. At least this &%$#@ disease is getting me there :)

I love potatoes, but I am wondering how much they really like me.

Like a traveling chemist's lab.

Could you imagine if we parked those two things, set it all up and got the cooking going?

The aroma alone would attract cabana boyz like mad!! (and probably any animals in the area....)

This is dinner tonight, but I'm using the white rice variation and the only mustard I have is Gulden's.

Aren't men and animals pretty much the same thing?

This could be our chase car!

I have one of these we could use. Only ours has real roll bars, real racing seats and harnesses and a souped up engine and suspension.

    • You're welcome! Yes, I too, hate waiting for lab results. Ugh!
    • I understand this is not a doctor's office and that I need proper testing done to rule out Celiac disease, however, I am stuck waiting until November to even see a GI doctor. So I need some suggestions soon on which test to go for first and what to do as I wait. Also do note, I am 28 years old.

      Right now, the most suspecting culprits to my symptoms have been Gallbadder, Celiac disease, and IBS. I have also been recently diagnosed with pre-diabetes and I am obese.  My Ultrasound and CT scan have all come up as normal and no signs of gallstones. However, I was in extreme pain as my upper abdomen was examined during the ultra sound. My white blood cell count also seems to be high at 12,000 but all blood work came back normal for liver and everything else.

      Symptoms included are: diarrhea
      yellow-stools (Sometimes foul smelling but always sink)
      light gnawing pain in area a few inches above belly button
      burning in chest
      sometimes pain below upper right rib cage.
      Tenderness all around the upper abdomen, but more so on the right and center.
      burping frequently after meals
      Gassy
      bloating in abdomen The pains used to come and go for the past few years as something very mild, but then the yellow stools happen at least four months ago and at a constant rate. Everyday it is either yellow or orange.  Sometimes the stools are lose and other times they are not. Two months in, I was finally diagnosed with pre-diabetes and have been having a strict low calorie and non fatty diet.

      So far the upper right pain has subsided but the pain above my belly button would continue. The gassy and bloated feeling would come and go as well. I get severe heart burn after almost every meal. But I felt it especially after eating whole wheat sandwiches or whole wheat pasta. I however don't feel it when I eat a Nature Valley granola bar, or pack of peanut butter crackers. I also had a chicken and vegetable stir fry with soy sauce cooked in that also had little effect on me. A bowl of cereal also made the heart burn act up pretty bad. I sometimes feel numb or light headed after various meals. Especially larger ones. In fact, it seems the more I eat, the worse I feel. But the less in the stomach, the more the pain above my belly button starts to act up.

      It is usually in the morning and afternoon I feel the most with gas and bloating. Especially after any large meals from the previous day. Despite the diet and work outs I have had, nothing has changed the stools. However, taking fish oil pills has greatly reduced the pain in my upper abdomen as well as the pain  in the the area above my belly button. My question now is, is there a very likely chance of this being celiac disease? Should I go on a gluten free diet to test since I Have to wait so long? Also, which test should I ask the doctor for first, as it will take a GREAT deal of time to pay off each one. Colonoscopy, HIDA scan, or endoscopy. 

      Again, I understand this isn't a site to get compete medical advice or to know exactly what my illness is, but I am trying to narrow down the possibility or what is most likely. If this has a chance of being celiac disease, I would rather know sooner than later.
    • Thank you very much for all the info Squirmingitch. The doctor told me as we were talking he was going to order some tests with urine so I don't know why he didn't mark that. Maybe he forgot as we were talking? Duly noted about the bladder Cancer to watch out for too. Doctor said it will take about a week to get the lab results back usually from this lab. The wait will seem like forever I'm sure. Yes I will press to have the other tests done too if this one comes back negative.
    • http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Was your hubs tested for total IgA to see if he's IgA deficient? Read this thread: http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/test-catalog/Clinical+and+Interpretive/83660
    • Yes, bone density problems are all part of the celiac "umbrella" so to speak and yes, osteoporosis tends to happen more rapidly and at earlier ages than normal when malabsorption is happening. At age 43, it's not normal to have osteoporosis as you describe so that's another part of the jigsaw puzzle. Time to receive blood test results back from the doc are entirely dependent on the particular lab they were sent to. Yep, it's time for you to start keeping a very close check on the PSA in light of your father having had prostrate cancer. I would think you should get a PSA every year. I really would have liked to see him do a urinalysis. With the prostrate cancer your father had, it would seem a close watch should be kept on you for bladder cancer as well. The first symptom of that is blood in the urine but it's generally microscopic before you're ever able to actually see it. That happens to be the 8th most common cancer in men & it's moving up in the rankings. I know this because my hubs had it. The good news is that it's also one of the easiest and most successfully treated provided it's caught early. Certainly starting @ age 50, men should see a urologist every year. BTW, in the last year before I found out I was celiac, I turned up with microscopic blood in my urine. I got it checked out thoroughly since I know about bladder cancer & all tests, ultrasounds, cystoscopy, CT scan etc... turned out fine. The docs were stumped & finally said, "apparently that's just what your body does". Guess what? That's not "just" what MY body does. Once I went gluten-free, I have had no more microscopic blood in my urine. Interesting eh? Before now I didn't realize you are in Canada. The doc didn't do the full celiac panel but I understand the initial screening protocols in Canada only order the TTG but if that comes back negative be sure & press for the full panel as cyclinglady said. We have several here who tested like cyclinglady so it's not a rare thing, it's just not the norm. I'm glad he's doing the B-12 & Ferritin -- those can be big clues.
