I had to throw 3 slices away because I wasn't thinking and put it in the wrong toaster! ACK!

also know you're gluten free when you start having nightmares about eating something with gluten.

LOL i had one (nightmare) this morning that i was heating my last piece of The Most Awesome gluten-free Pizza Ever (doesn't exist, sigh, it was a dream...) and somebody chucked a huge piece of italian bread on top of it!!

you know you're gluten free if all the inbox photos on your phone are pictures of grocery packages or ingredients (my husband lol is always second guessing at the store, God bless him!)

At least he cares enough to second guess:) My husband does the same thing except it's calling me a bunch of times while he is shopping (annoying at times but at least he cares enough to take the time)

You know you are gluten free if you call a company and stay on hold for ten minutes to find out if their food is gluten free waiting in the same palace given that the cell reception in the store is spotty. And you just smile at the store personnel who is stocking food across the aisle from you.

Haha, I always wondered who an earth would call those info lines. Now I know - me! And yes, there is always someone stocking the shelves near by...

You know you're gluten free when your fear of being near people eating toast (or garlic bread, agh!) has become stronger than your fear of spiders.

You know you're gluten free if you know the best prices and places to buy amaranth, quinoa and teff.

You might enjoy some of these as well:

...but still looking for the Classic Chris/celiac3270 "You know You're Celiac if....".

Here We Go:

(This brought laughing tears to my eyes many years ago.)

...enjoy!

    • They didn't suggest any probiotic support. Ultimately the side-effects of this drug stabilized approaching the end of the course of treatment, though after it was finished, I was perhaps a bit improved, but no profound symptom resolution for me. Darn! The search goes on.
    • Thankyou I have found that I became intolerant of dairy and having cut it out feeling better but if I come into accidental consumption the symptoms are similar to that of gluten but not as severe .. Patience ay ?
    • I checked the Gluten Free Watchdog (I subscribe) and did not find this  particular product, but found the company's oat bran flakes which did not list any gluten ingrediants, but barley was found in testing well over 20 parts per million.  I would stick with certified gluten-free cereals, personally.  I think it is "hit or miss" on grain products.    
    • It is normal for other intolerances to become apparent once you remove gluten. I don't know why, perhaps as the immune system is free'd from chasing gluten it finds new targets? A lot of coeliacs find they have to cut out dairy as well for example. It's certainly my number one culprit for skin issues.  It also can take time for removing gluten to have its full effect, as antibodies will remain in the body for up to 6 months. So the reaction could still be to gluten in a way. 
    • I did not re-test my antibodies for a full year after diagnosis but I think your daughter should be checked again in 6 months.  If she does have celiac, and I really am sure she does regardless of what this doc seems to think, they should decrease in 6 months.  If she is fast healer, they could potentially be in the normal range but it varies from person to person. She did show damage in her small intestine but at 4 years of age, damage would not have progressed to the point where this doctor could be convinced it is Celiac.  They set the bar way too high. Kind of silly to require you to damage her insides further to prove it to the AMA. I think she should go gluten-free, as you have stated, and re-scope her in 6 months to see how the original damage looks then. If it is gone, then maybe that would convince them. The 4 out 5 criteria is not done in kids because, I am convinced, of liability issues. They just do not want to get sued if by some small chance, they diagnosed someone who did not have Celiac.  I think the odds of that are pretty slim, when you think about it. Even with a misdiagnosis, eating gluten free will never harm anyone. But as children are minors and cannot legally make medical decisions on their own like adults can, that rule is out for them.
