Hello everyone!!

I am new to these boards but was wondering if there was anyone on here from the South East Missouri area? I have not yet formally been diagnosed but I am hoping to hear from my Dr any day now with my Celiac Panel test results!

I'd love to hear from anyone in my area or close to my area!!

Take care and have a GREAT night!!!

Hi! I'm actually from the Kansas side in KC, so really, nowhere close. And after that baseball game today, I think my dog in my picture may have had the right idea. He refused to wear the Royals hat. :lol:

Scott City - north of Sikeston 20 miles or so.

I still have a sister and my mother living in SEMO, so I have made the drive on HWY 60 from Springfield through Dexter many, many times. I've seen the sign for Fisk.

We are lucky that Springfield is big enough to have some health food stores to buy gluten-free supplies. We even have a local support group, but it's mostly older people, and my son is the only family member with Celiac.

good luck with your diagnosis,

Bev

Hope all is well there. We saw pictures of Joplin and it is terrible! The news said the hospital there took a direct hit.

Springfield got the thunderstorm, but the tornado activity went south of us. After it passed there was a huge double rainbow!

Wow!! Scott City huh? I go through there everytime I go to Cape!! Small world!

I am very worried about getting the diagnosis simply for the reason Poplar Bluff only has 1 health food store and I am merely assuming that they carry gluten free foods. I have been paying attention when I grocery shop (at wal-mart) to the amounts of gluten free foods available.

But I guess I will do the best I can with what I have to work with!!

:D

Most health food stores carry gluten-free items, and most will special-order items for you if they don't already carry it. But with the internet you can always buy mail-order items yourself. The hard part is deciding what to buy, but eventually you figure out what things you like and don't like. And don't overlook local grocery stores or Wal-Mart - you can always ask them to carry specific items.

I don't buy a lot of pre-made gluten-free stuff - just occasionally pretzels and cookies. Mostly I buy gluten-free flours and bake everything myself - pizza crusts, bread, rolls, cookies, cakes, waffles, etc. My son never cared for pasta, gravy or casseroles, so that simplifies things. We do a lot of Mexican foods using corn tortillas and taco shells.

We had one health food store in Mountain Home... 25 miles away... now there are two!! Woo hoo!! At the one store, the owner offered to order anything I wanted/needed, but I had to tell him that while I certainly appreciated his effort to help me and how I'd like to patronize local businesses... gluten-free food is expensive and I can order from the online site w/ the name of the long river in So. America (I don't think we're allowed to say the name) and (when I plan to order my Pamela's bread mix and Tinkyada pasta and do it at the same time) shipping if FREE, not to mention the per-item cost is less. He understood completely.

    • Today was the big day when I went to the GI and this is the first time I have felt heard and taken care of.  I told him about the two celiac blood tests  (in my first post) normal, he said that often happens, even with people who do have celiac and he needed to see the report and pictures from my endoscope.    I had filled out the appropriate Kaiser paperwork for Sutter to send all my medical records, but they ended up sending a disc with records to me, which Sutter said they could not use.  We also talked about gluten sensitivity v. celiac, and he said a lot of people are sensitive to gluten even if they don't have celiac. He said that my symptoms sound like classic IBS, which can be caused by any number of things.  He asked if I would try the FODMAP diet, which limits certain foods and requires no gluten. He said my symptoms sound like classic IBS, which he said can be caused by any number of things, including gluten sensitivity.  He has asked if I would try the FODMAP diet, which has restricted foods as well as no gluten because most gluten products have wheat in them.  So, since I am planning on going gluten free anyway, and I don't want another endoscope or blood tests if absolutely necessary, I am going to try the FODMAP diet and see what happens. I filled a consent form at the GI office today to have all my records sent to him so he can view the endoscope pathology report and photos.  I have an appointment with a Registered Dietician on September 30, and follow up appointment the GI in 4 months. 
    • gluten-free andee, according to an article on celiac.com  that talks about this subject see this link http://www.celiac.com/articles/24406/1/Celiac-Diease-and-Other-Autoimmune-Diseases-Equals-Low-Inflammatory-Diet/Page1.html Quoting the author "In the author's personal experience, a gluten-free diet has many limitations. The reactivity between alpha gliadin and corn, millet, oats, rice and dairy has been denounced as invalid by gastroenterologists and celiac disease researchers. While at a medical school in Missouri, biopsies did not show improvement in villous atropy until all alpha gliadin sources and corn, millet, rice and oats were removed from the diet."  Note this research is two years old but hilites the problem with non-gluten rice protein that you are having. It is the alpha gliadin sources that it causing the cross reactivity you are experiencing when you eat rice protein's. She says quoting "Celiac disease has gotten the most attention in antibody research, but the current data on cross-reactivity of antibodies is allowing a better understanding of gluten sensitivity. Antigen reactivity to alpha-gliadin can trigger immune attacks on many individuals beyond those with positive DQ 2, DQ 8 and TTG test results. She goes on to say "A low inflammatory diet customized to each person through testing for cross-reactivity or elimination diet protocols is needed to restore a state of health and well-being."  which sounds exactly like what you are doing. If you are still having problems after elminating rice a 30 day elimination of all the alpha gliadin proteins might be in order.  Corn is a common reactivity problem I hear with a gluten allergy from my friends as well as the obvious lactose problems that can be common among celiacs.  But rarely do you hear Rice allergy's brought up in context of a gluten allergy. I am glad you are making progress on finding your triggers. Read the whole article for yourself to see if there are nuggets of truth I did not highlight in my response. I hope this is helpful. Good luck on your journey to health. Posterboy,
    • One other thing - you might be able to tolerate some dairy if it's only the FODMAPs problem. I discovered that many cheese such as cheddar have effectively no lactose. And my wife sometimes makes 24 hour yoghurt, which also has effectively no lactose. Those have been fine for my tummy.
