I know it has been said many (tons) of times but I have to say it again because, here I am - a new member and, this forum has made such a difference.

This has been so educational and whole areas of experience are so important.

A friend of mine and I were visiting and I know she is bipolar so I asked "Do you have D by any chance?"

"All my life..."

"IBS?"

"Oh yes, and migraines."

I was all over her to go and get tested and I am so excited that there might be an answer to some of her issues. Even to get rid of the GI issues would help so much.

And now I am starting a support group here and they have a safe place to come and share everything... this site! I feel very thankful for all this offers here.

Y'all ROCK!

Etta!

You rock!!! Look what you are doing? That is so cool!

I'm so happy for your friend!

My sister has a friend who has Hashimoto's...because I have been talking to my sis about my thyroid and my Celiac, she told her friend with Hashimoto's to get tested for Celiac because it is very common.

This is one person at a time....but this place really does Rock!!!

Made me well and I tell everyone about it.

We need little stickers....Green Celiac stickers that say "I went to Celiac.com today." Kinda like the "I voted today" stickers....

that would get word round too!

It's true. What can you say when things all of a sudden make sense and you are being validated. Then you explain it and someone says "That's me too!" It kind of snowballs. I can hardly wait till that support meeting... 3 more days.

Do you know what is cool.. the drugstore here has taken on the job of ordering Gluten Free products for us and the girl in charge... has Celiac! That is the best scenario I could think of. The owner of the store that did this before was looking at it as an income only. This will be a service... and they will care. They are even buying a freezer for frozen goods!

I guess I should move out of here.. this isn't technical or forum info anymore.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
