Today is a good day, today at our local festival I entered my gluten free chocolate cream pie, and you wanna know what.......I took first place!!! :lol: I just had to share this with people that understand the frustrations of gluten free baking, finding tricks that work for you, and then success!!! This has been one heck of a journey, and not everyday is this great, but everyday I come on to this forum, read other peoples stories, ask for advice, or just feel comfort from people who know exactly what this truthfully feels like. So dear friends I wanted to share this little triumph, everyone have a great weekend!

How wonderful! So glad people are discovering the virtues of gluten-free baking. I bet in addition to your success the judges' eyes were opened as well (which is also success). Way to go! :P

Yes! Share the recipe!

Something pretty cool along a similar line happened to me today. There was a bake sale in town, and one lady had a gluten free table! It seems I'm NOT the only one in this small town with Celiac. I got some cookies with chocolate chips and pecans - yum! And because I know this lady lives in a totally gluten free home, I knew they were safe to eat.

Top right side of each post there is a +- sign. Click the plus sign to Like a post and the minus sign to dislike a post. We are much more advanced on this forum than Facebook, cause we have a dislike option. :D I clicked the plus sign for Bonnie Blue's post. Try it, it doesn't hurt at all! :)

    • 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  
    • I was tested for the full panel, I believe. I had normal values for t-transglutaminase (ttg) igg,t-transglutaminase (ttg) iga, deamidated gliadin abs igg, deamidated gliadin abs iga, and immunoglobulin a qn serum.
