 if I don't sneak up there and eat the whole log of cheese in one sitting I will slip those pears into a grilled cheese with it. It would be like heaven.

 

 

if it matters, that's what I would do. ;)

 

(walnuts and vinegar are HH, and I knew that when I suggested things to you.... but if you did a tiny bit, you should be ok!).

HH is high histamine. There are a few of us who are cursed with a histamine intolerance. Probably not the sort of thing anyone knows who doesn't deal with it or who hasn't been around here enough to see it talked about some.

High Histamine -- a few of us that went un-dx'd for a while discovered that Histamine containing and Histamine inducing foods are the cause of some of our lingering symptoms...you see the enzymes needed to regulate histamine in the body are created in the small intestine -- there is a real disorder called 'Histamine Intolerance' that nearly every country in the world acknowledges -- unforunately US doctors have no knowledge of it and neither UCSD or Mayo could run the tests necessary to diagnose it for me....crazy but was the last big piece of my personal medical mystery puzzle.

Anytime!  Glad you asked...amazing that just over four years ago I had no real knowledge of the digestive system -- heck, I didn't even know what Celiac Disease was and had only heard the word gluten a few times in my life!

This thread is for chatting...we were chatting....

 

I skipped dinner last night as I ran into one of my mystery reactions -- but did do another round of easy baked beans that I let bake all day on very low and then hubs roasted the chickens I was intending to cook for the men / leftover chicken meat and bones to make bone broth for me.

 

Tonight -- hmmm -- better get something defrosting ;)

 

Happy Friday!

for God's sake woman, I just drooled copiously on my laptop....oh my, that sounds fabulous.

 

rhubarb crisp....waaaa, i want that!!!  :D

 

No one says "oozing and unctuous" and gets away with it...except you. love it! xx

You, as always, are just too cute for words.  Wish I could reach out and pinch your cheeks!  :lol:

 

The HH thing intrigues me as well.  I've read links you've provided and cannot believe how many of the symptoms I have (had).  It just makes so much sense!

 

Tonight we are having the second half of the ribs...

 

Spicy Bourbon ribs with a Memphis rub I always make to have on hand and homemade delectable, ooey gooey and UNCTUOUS sauce

Roasted warm herbed potato salad with fried caper thingers

Raw cukes, carrots, fennel, jicama and broccoli with bagna cauda to which I am seriously addicted

 

Not sure what else.  I just might come up with something creative!  ^_^

I've been working my butt off yesterday and today. The weeks before a ballet performance are crazy for the business and I get to be the one in charge of the programs. While I am fine with that and have masters to work from, gathering all the info has been... challenging to say the least. I'm going to have a long night ahead of me. I took the afternoon to run errands, in the heat and sun with my husband because apparently I'm a moron today. I did get into the garden store and find a pineapple mint to replace a tomato that gave up on me this week. Pretty excited to be able to go plant him after the sun goes down.

 

So dinner will be cheating. Burgers on the indoor grill, and probably deep fried fries. Simple and practically effortless.

there is enough cheek to pinch...facial or gluteal LOL 

 

I am sure I sent you the HH info, because anytime someone I care about has chronic pain and inflammation,

I "go there" in  my head (as does My Ski Lisa)  but if not, you're getting it (again, probably) via email. :D

 

Dinner tonight:

Rustic pizza

while I pack a "to go" bag of clothes and food for our trip East for a wedding.

 

Have a great weekend, all  my peeps!! xx

We are very glad you found us too...the more the merrier in this thread :)

 

dinner last night was boneless country ribs with vegies -- and garlic pasta for the men -- served on my new -- very old pieces of crap laying around the house put together - bar height patio dinning table!  I love it...restained a large redwood round table top...put it on top of an old glass top small round that looked like shit -- added a few bricks between them to raise the height so I could use three pairs of mismatched bar stools we had floating around covered the base with reed fence material and covered the whole deal with two market umbrellas - one old that tilts and a new cheapo 9 footer above to provide shade from the late afternoon sun that causes me all kinds of trouble -- sure wish my house was on the opposite side of the street -- although we do get to see the fireworks show from SeaWorld during Summer nights -- so it does have that going for it -- which is nice.

 

tonight is steak -- some random steak from the freeze for the boys and I and a huge fresh Rib Eye for the hubs -- he turns 50 on Wednesday so I'm starting the spoiling early -- he has to work today so I have quadruple choc brownies in the oven to deliver to the jobsite for breaktime.

 

Happy Saturday Dinner Peeps -- Hope you all have a good day :)

thanks, lisa - i was going to ask y'all for info on this anyway - oh, man, that's alot of things i like to eat :(  if you are sensitive to one, does that mean you're sensitive to all?  or eliminate them one at a time (and not eat any of the others?)  how would one proceed?

 

tonight - last night with my bestie - they are steak eaters, i could live without it (plus, gives me an excuse to make.......)

OYSTERS lolz and they can have their red meat

she and her daughter hate veggies, so i'll put spinach on my oysters :)

roasted red potatoes

 

and i will worry with the histamines tomorrow.  (monday, really lolz)  :D

Good News is it is not like gluten -- you can have a little Histamine containing or inducing foods...the key is finding how much your body can handle -- mine can handle very little right now, but I am hopeful that I'll keep improving. 

 

I'd suggest anyone that has unresolved symptoms give this a try -- remove ALL histamine containing foods for about a week -- then try eating small amounts of different removed foods every couple of days and keep a log. 

 

Example...I can have a glass sometimes two of red wine...but if I overdo it I pay for it the next day...sometimes the same day.

 

I can do some cheese, but not too much

 

I can eat oysters and shrimp....but sing it with me....not too much

 

you get the drift...feel free to ask more questions -- my happiest day was Thanksgiving this past year when I figured the histamine connection to my exercise issue -- then removed all high histamine foods -- then kept getting better :D

 

I'm already planning for my next happiest day and that will be when my gut finally starts making the enzymes necessary to process histamine -- should that day come -- Party at my house and you are all invited!!!

I was very strict with the histamine diet for a few weeks, I saw improvement right away and continue to as time goes on but could only take the strict elimination for so long. I enjoy all sorts of things in moderation with no ill effect, and sometimes with terrible effects and know that that particular item is a no-go for me.

 

Tonight for the first time I tried a Dave's pasta sauce. (I finally caved when it was on sale for $5 a jar, I obviously won't be enjoying this often!) No wonky ingredients and there is a butternut squash sauce. Sure, it has tomatoes but only some. I'm happy to say that it is absolutely delicious and I do not at all regret spending the money on the jar.

 

I'd like to make my own enzymes too! Stupid useless intestine. <_< I think your party should be in the summer so we can enjoy the pool. :D

You made me want creamed corn which to my surprise is amazingly easy to make.

 

So, to go with my roasted chicken tonight was creamed corn, mashed taters and gravy. I think I may get into the freezer for some ice cream later for dessert, cooking while an oven is roasting away at 500 means that you get roasted chicken and roasted people. :lol:

OMG it never occurred to me to tell you about sweet potato pasta. Our local Asian market has it. We actually have more than an entire aisle that is all noodles, which is incredibly awesome.

 

I'm also with you on the fireworks. When I dragged my husband down to the fire & ice festival in the freezing weather in February it wasn't for any of the other fun stuff, it was for the fireworks. I am still like a kid the way I get excited. :D

Hellooooooo dinner peeps!

Had a fabulous time at the wedding. Legs still work after dancing my face off for hours. whoohoo!

hmm...maybe I should post this in the thread about "paranoid to go to a wedding"--maybe later---

but I my cousin made sure we GeeFReers had apps (shrimp cocktail, crudities, cheese platter) but I just had a cocktail.

 

So cool to see my fun cousins I had not seen in 5 years. They were glad to see--as some of them dryly noted-- I was not dead.  :lol: ....sarcasm runs in the family...

 

 

Special soup for us was roasted garlic, chickpea and veggies ("the others" had a not-so-great clam chowdah, they told me)

Dinner was salad, no croutons--( and I love you, cousin JoAnn for telling them not to bother with those!)

A filet mignon done to perfection (no gravy for us) roasted potatoes and summer squashes.

They all had cake and ice cream, but I brought the GFers giant homemade cookies. ("the others" wanted to know... hey.... Where did THOSE come from?? sorry, dude...just eat yer cake!)

 

Got back to the hotel at 1:30 AM.

 

Life is good.  ;)

    • Formal dinner suggestions
      Hi people. I'd just like some ideas for what I can take for V to a formal family dinner. Unfortunately the restaurant has stated there is no gluten-free safe option so I have to take his meal and dessert.  I can make him gluten-free chocolate cake so thats fine.  But its a three course dinner, and I need to transport it there. Hopefully they will be happy to heat it if needed.  Something really nice and special would be good because everyone else will be eating really  nice meals.  
    • Italian pasta
      Get some celiac travel cards to print off and keep in your wallet.  Present them to your waiter.   http://www.celiactravel.com/cards/ Tell the airline that you need a gluten free meal, BUT take food with you because odds are the airlines will make a mistake.   As far as the wheat pasta.....some folks say the wheat is different.  I personally think they are kidding themselves.  There is no scientific proof that I have found to support this theory.  (Anyone want to present such data?)  Italy, from what I heard is great for celiacs.  I'll know for sure this summer!  I'll be there!   As usual, we plan on bringing some packable food, but we are good at shopping at grocery stores for food and picnicking when traveling.  I expect foods at grocery stores to be clearly marked as they were in Great Britain since they are part of the EU.  
    • Villous atrophy with negative tTG IgG/IgA, high Gliadin IgA!
      It looks like you have a few options that you need to consider pursuing: 1.  Get back to your doctor and tell him to figure out what's wrong with you.  Take a friend because it helps to have someone listen and take notes who is not the patient.  Get copies of all lab reports and doctor notes always and keep a file on yourself to share with future doctors or to monitor your progress.   2.  Ditch this GI and get a new one (SIBO is real per my celiac savvy GI).  Take a friend with you.   3.  You say you are lactose intolerant.  Experiment by going lactose free for six months -- not just a few days.  This will help to promote healing and help determine if milk (lactose or proteins) are causing villi damage and not gluten. 4.  Recognize that some celiacs test NEGATIVE to antibodies.  Per Dr. A. Fasano and Dr. Murrary, based on their clinincal experience and recent data just published, they estimate that 10 to 20 percent of celiac disease patients test negative to the serology screening test. That means consider yourself a celiac and stop your gluten intake for at least six months.  Normal vitamin and mineral levels do not rule out celiac disease.   5.  Recognize that you can multiple reasons for villi damage.  That's why a second consult with a celiac savvy GI is important.   Good luck!    
    • Continued Symptoms
      Try keeping a food and symptom diary.   She could have allergies or intolerances.  But, again, I am not a doctor!  I am healed from celiac disease, but I still react to certain foods and have allergies.  Those will probably never go away as I have been plagued with them all my life (as my siblings have too).  She could have a milk protein intolerance and not just lactose.  Eliminate all dairy too see if it helps.   Speech really normalizes by the age of 8.  I can not say if your public school will evaluate her.  My home-schooled friends are still monitored by the state and receive state funding.  So, I would assume they would receive all the same benefits.  Try calling.  
    • Weeks in and feeling no better
      Let me tell you that based on what people post on this forum, it takes MUCH longer to heal.  In theory,  it should just take a few week on a gluten diet to promote villi healing.  Your body is constantly regenerating new cells in your gut on a daily basis.    Why the delay?   First,  it takes a long time to really master the gluten free diet.  So, in the beginning, dietary mistakes are often made which can delay the healing time.  Second,  celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder triggered by gluten causing a "flare-up" which can be measured by the level of antibodies in your system.  Antibodies can take weeks, months or years to come down.   Third,  there's the type of damage done to your body to consider (e.g. bone damage, depleted iron levels).  Usually anything neuro takes much longer to heal. Has your doctor checked you for nutritional deficiencies?  If not, ask.  You might be really low on a vitamin or mineral.   You could be low on digestive enzymes (actually they can not be released in a damaged gut).  So even when eating gluten free foods, your body is not digesting and absorbing the necessary nutrients.  You could help the healing process by taking gluten free supplements and enzymes.   But it is best to see what you are actually deficient in.   Most of these deficiencies resolve with time. Finally, my parting words of wisdom (as passed on by many of our members), is patience.  I know.  Hard to be patient when you want to feel well, but it will happen.   Hang in there!

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.

      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!
