You Might Be Celiac If.......

My diagnosis is pretty new (although I posted here years ago because I already suspected) and this is cracking me up! First because I actually commented to my mom after dinner, "sigh, it feels so nice to have normal poops"

My additions to this thread are:

You have a toaster with a post-it note that says, "Mom's toaster"

You yank a package of lunch mean out of your mother's hand because she's just handled regular bread and she's about ready to stick her paws all over YOUR turkey.

You work in an elementary school and actually use the mens room that no one EVER uses as your personal hidie hole (I'm a woman).

You're reading this thread while drinking a Bard's beer and trying to convince yourself that it's almost as good as your beloved Blue Moon and wondering if your brewmaster friend could try making a gluten free beer with a little blueberry and pumpkin, just for you.

You read this entire thread and realize that you've found "your people"

Your listing something for sale on an auction site and after it is listed you discover instead of saying the item is made with glue you use the word 'gluten' instead. :blink:

... you are watching TV and realize that every time someone eats something with gluten in it, you are mouthing the name of the item under your breath.

You get pissed when your brother looks in the full fridge and freezer and overstocked pantry and says, "hhhh, nothing to eat." :lol:

You get irritated when people act like you are rude for not sharing your expensive, homemade, organic, took-too-d^m-long-to-cook food at work.

You pull your shirt up and flash your pregnancy-sized belly when people say I can't eat beans it makes me bloat.

You spend more time reading food labels, studying ingredients, and researching cross-contamination for every product they sell at Walmart (i.e. everything there is) than the FDA does. :blink:

You happen to mention the word "McDonalds" and the response is, please don't tell me what is in the food. I like it too much and I don't want to know.

    • 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.
