First the smart A remark: That will be attractive to women!

Now you get my Mom remark: What have you learned from this, Dear?

I wanted to bring a couple out of town friends to the best pizza place in my town...and I was also kind of curious what would happen after 6 weeks gluten-free... all that really happened was I got extremely bloated and felt kinda feverish...weird :blink:

I'm back on the wagon now...kinda concerned about an upcoming vacation, but I'll just be extra careful! :o

Don't cheat Deltron! A pizza place is a danger zone. There's flour that goes airborn and settles on everything. :o Your friends won't take your diet seriously if it appears that you can can go off and on it?

PS..I kind of like a guy with long arms. You'd be handy for reaching things on the top shelf of the cabinet. ;)

Hmm...yes it would appear some of my neuro symptoms have also resurfaced...I guess even occasional "cheating" is not worth it!

Good point...I'd never let my close friends see me eat gluten...these were out of towners I was trying to impress at the expense of my health lol.

Doh! I forgot to add...once I went gluten-free my blood pressure lowered on it's own. I was able to quit taking my blood pressure meds. I guess the inflammation that gluten causes can raise one's blood pressure?

Nope, occasional cheating is NEVER worth it---it just reboots the autoimmume response. Neuro issues are the SLOWEST to resolve, so those ugly buggers last a few weeks. :blink: I hate that anxiety stuff...yuck.

I'll give you my "mom" tsk, tsk (waggling my finger) and then say---"Hope you learned your lesson, young man!!" :lol: Seriously, though---not a good idea to ingest gluten, okay??

As for impressing people---yeah, but what if you had to leave the table suddenly to vomit or "expell" something?? THAT would be very impressive, huh?? :rolleyes: So attractive. <_<

You have a serious condition that requires care, hon--I know, you are probably in your 20's and think you are bullet proof (yeah, I was once, too

and wouldn't have given a rat's butt about such things--smoke, drink, whatever,,,,I thought, nothing can hurt me :lol: ) but kiddo, please don't mess with gluten anymore. Live a good, long healthy life!!

Be well--be happy---now, that's attractive ;)

I hope that happens with me! It only seems logical inflammation would cause higher blood pressure... I'm getting a BP monitor so I will keep an eye on it.

I would also like to get off my GERD meds someday too although that's a bit more doubtful b/c I think I have some mechanical issues that are unlikely to change. :blink:

I have been on PPI med for a long time for severe GERD. Since I think my gluten and soy were causing it, I recently asked my new Dr. if he thought I could try going off the PPI? He said to give it a try and use an H2 blocker like Zantac if really needed.

Those GERD meds can cause all sorts of bad side effects,especially with long term use, so I hope you can get to where you can try going off them too.

Thanks for the info...I'm going to ask my doctor about that. I don't want to take PPI's for the rest of my life. I already have Osteopenia as it is.

Just a little update on my progress for you folks:

Not sure yet, but it seems like I've got an enlarged spleen...I have an ultrasound scheduled. I can't help but suspect it's Celiac related.

Cross your fingers for me!!! :blink:

Hi Good to see more guys. I havent been diagnosed with celiac, but I am pretty sure I am gluten sensitive. I figure it out a few years ago but kept backsliding. Cant resist my toast!

Started agin Jan first and getting better slowly-I am 52 so it will take longer.

I also have GERD, anxiety, hypertension, I.B.S., A.D.D. (real bad as an adolescent), and sleep apnea.All are improving. The worst is the big hard distended belly but it is beginning to soften up. At my age I dont expect to get washboard abs. Looking back I lived on toast, and my Granny fed me her delicious home baked bread. I was the only kid that 'had to lie down and take a nap' after eating it!

Well, a bunch of organs I had were enlarged due to celiac--really, my GB, Spleen, liver, pancreas, thyroid--I had all kinds of "itisis"--so it is possible. Inflammation can cause lots of problems. :rolleyes:

Fingers crossed, of course!

Are you sticking to your diet, kiddo?

Yup, I've got all those symptoms too! It's nice to know there are other people out there going through the same thing.

I've probably got a lot of other 'enlarged' organs in my sizable abdomen... I've only been getting fatter since going gluten free though...I guess I need to cut back a bit on the hard cider haha.

I've been sticking to the diet except for the few transgressions noted above, although my diet could still use some work!

You are the only one that controls what goes in your mouth, kiddo.

You have got to be more careful!! This is not something to mess with.

You know this already because we already "Mommed" you enough with it.

But I do hope your spleen is okay. Keep us posted.

Good news! My spleen and other organs all appear to be normal. I think my guts are just going through a lot of upheaval since I went gluten-free. I may also be getting some cross contamination, but I'm usually very careful.

It's been 4 months now gluten-free and the doctor says all my gluten markers are coming way down.

    • 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.
