If you can stand in the middle of a candy store and not be tempted to taste even one piece for fear of spending a week trying to detox....you might be a Celiac.

Btw the top shelf liquor one is sooo true!

If you know what, and where, your duodenum is, you are very likely celiac.

Great topic, 1962! :lol:

Love it! Laughed out loud at the "if I take a sip of your soda will I catch your "bread thing".....

I'd like to add that you may be Celiac if you watch what people eat and think "you're NUTS!".

It is like watching some one intentionally eat poison :ph34r:

If you stand in line at the grocery store and look at what other people have in their shopping cart and shake you head in dismay ...........you may be celiac

This is taken from The Irish Coeliac Messageboard and is a true story, believe it or not!

Quote:

I was in College a while back, and was standing in line at the dreaded food counter, waiting to hear that inevitable question that all Coeliacs must endure "what would you like."

Ahead of me was a fellow student, and he turned to question me, "So, what are you in the mood for today.."

I replied "I wasn't sure" not wanted to blab out right away that I had unusual eating patterns!

He persisted though. "The pasta looks good!"

At this stage, I just thought I'd get it over with and said with as much gusto as I could "I'M A COELIAC".

He hesitated for a moment and replied

" Really, I'm a Saggitarian myself"!!!!

I laughed till tears came to my eyes...

you might be celiac if you did a victory dance in the isle when you found out that fruity pebbles were gluten free

you might be celiac if being hungry away from home is your worst nightmare

you might be celiac if you use tongs to hold the fish flake container when you feed your fish and then was your hands compulsively afterwards

you might be celiac if you avoid passing the bread at dinner

There's a stomach bug going around and you are actually jealous of the people with diarrhea. (true story lol)

If you have spent $200 on food just to throw $150 of it away cos it went bad.

You've told a family member they can have some of your food just to find crumbs in it the next day :/

You've told someone that you can't eat gluten and tell them how it makes you feel and they say "I think I have that too!"

You tell family members this maybe why they have some of the problems they have just for them to say "I'm not giving up my food"

If someone has offered you unsafe food and before you can respond a friend or family member shouts out "They can't eat that!!" lol

You've gotten excited and bought something you think is safe just to get home and find you forgot to check for other things it has that you are allergic too.

You're brain hits the delete button after you tell it to remember something lol

Your colon looks at laxatives like they're Flintstones vitamins.

If you have more supplements than the drugstore. lol

If people seem have a harder time with you not being able to eat anything than you do.

You're brain hits the delete button after you tell it to remember something (Just kidding!!) :lol:

And if you find you have an unlimited vocabulary for describing poop, much like the Eskimos have for "snow"

    • Well, you can probably get an apple or something.  You might be able to get someone to boil you some eggs.  But be careful of things like nuts that should be naturally gluten free.  They have almost always been soaked in a flavor solution that usually containes caramel coloring, "soy" (wheat) sauce and other aditives.  If I am really hungry and must eat in a Chinese restaurant, I order plain white rice and steamed vegetables.  But even so, you must monitor it carefully.  The rice sometimes has other substances added to give it a better texture, and very often the vegetables have in fact had "just a little bit" of soy sauce added.  To be fair, celiac disease is hardly ever found in East Asians, so understandably people are not tuned it to it.  Also, culturally, with the exception of fruits, it is generally thought that the flavor of foods needs to be enhanced, so it is had to find anything natural even in the "western" gorceries. Even in the western restaurants, be careful.  Fish and meat and often vegetables are usually pre-marinated. I will not even attempt to address the issue of cross-comtamination, since that is a whole higher order of things. I do know what I am talking about; I have celiac and have worked here for nearly 7 years.  
    • I'm glad I found these forums!  I will spend some more time this evening reading through them.  But I wanted to get my question out there just to see if anyone else might have answers quicker than I can sift through the forum for them.      I've been feeling terrible for about a year, and after an elimination diet last month, figured out that if nothing else, gluten/wheat is a problem.  After lots of research, I abandoned the elimination diet and added gluten back in, so that I could get tested for Celiac.   I was off gluten for 3 weeks, from mid-June until early July.  I've had it back in my diet for almost 3 weeks now.    My question is this: Since I was off gluten for 3 weeks, and now back on for almost 3, is that enough time on to yield a positive Celiac blood test, if that indeed is what I have?  All the research I've done says 4-6 weeks for a gluten challenge, but is that really necessary if I was only not eating it for 3 weeks?  I am desperate to get this testing done and over with.  I feel terrible all the time and getting through the day is a struggle.  My doctor ran allergy panels already and everything came back clear except for a mild wheat allergy.  So if nothing else, I'll have to give up wheat for sure at the end of all this.  I get the feeling she doesn't know a ton about Celiac though, so I'm doing a lot of the research on my own. Any advice or information would be so appreciated! 
    • Hi Michael, That's quite a spike in blood pressure!  I haven't tested that myself and don't want to if it means I have to eat gluten.  Blood pressure testing to identify food reactions is something that has come up before.  It sounds like it might be possible but I don't know how much study has been done on it.  Probably not much since it is such a simple, straight forward idea. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Megan, Did the doctor test you for celiac disease?  You really shouldn't go gluten-free until all the testing for celiac disease is completed.  It is a little odd for a doctor to tell you to go gluten-free for no reason IMHO.  Did he/she explain the reason for it? Personally, I have learned over the years what I can eat safely and what I can't.  Occasionally I get hit but it is rare.  Simplifying your diet is a good first step.  Avoiding processed foods for a while and dairy also is good.  I suggest any change you make last for a month at least. Then try the food again. If you are eating 100 random ingredients/foods each day it is hard to figure these things out.  If you reduce it to a much smaller number of foods then things become simpler. Welcome to the forum!
