OK guys, this new format takes a little getting used to. I hope you all come back. Last night I tried the Mayacamas spicey pasta mix and ad libbed it. I used chopped up veggies, plus slivered skirt steak and added the pasta mix with a little tomato sauce with a corn spaghetti and it was wonderful. Very easy and quick and tasted just great. :blink: Shirley in San Diego

:rolleyes: Shirley in San Diego,

Are you the same Shirley who posted as "aramgard" in the former message board? If so, I am glad to see you back. I only posted several times but I read most of the messages once I discovered the site. When the message board format was changed, I was so disappointed that I might lose sight of yours and several others' sage advice. This site has been my lifeline since I was diagnosed about a year ago. It has helped me tremendously.

Yes Flo, I am the same Shirley. Aramgard was the name my mother wanted to name me when I was born and my dad wouldn't let her. So in her honor I chose that handle. Silly isn't it? Don't ever feel alone with Celiac we are all here to help. :rolleyes:

That's kinda cool, Shirley. Any idea where your mom got the name? It is very unique.

And that dish you posted sounds good. Where do you get the pasta mix?

Hi Shirley, how are you? What is happening with your daughter and son-in-law? I saw a picture and story in the paper about a family in Harbison Canyon, and how they had fought to move in a trailer. I read the story, thinking it might be your family.

What an intriguing thought, that your mother wanted to name you Aramgard--we've got to know more about that!

Jacque, I have been wanting to find a cheese cake for my grand-daughters, who I believe might be celiac disease, so I will search until I find your recipe.

Thanks to all for your input. Welda

Hi Welda, I'm much better, though my husband got a really bad cold and now has bronchitis so I'm hoping I don't get sick again. My daughter and her husband ended up getting an RV which they can drive in and out of the canyon and are now living back on their property. My son-in-law works for Cal-Trans and they have been allowing him to work from 2 to about 10 at night so he has mornings to work on the property. I think he's burning the candle at both ends. Sherie is beginning to get her act together and feeling better about the whole thing, except that rain was a little stressing, they only had a minor mud slide. If it ain't one thing it's another. That's life I guess, either fire or flood. I used to order Mayacama products over the Celiac Mall, but last week I found them at Henry's and was absolutely thrilled. :rolleyes: You might check out, I think it may still be Boney's in north county. Welcome Back, Shirley

Welda, I reread the Mayacama label last night and found that some of it has Whey which I don't think you can eat--sorry. I'm really glad I'm beginning to tolerate some milk products and can still tolerate eggs, because being without fish and shellfish is a real downer for me. Shirley

Hi everybody!! I'm trying to come up with new things that I can actually eat. I loved pretzels BC (Before Celiac), but now, obviously, I can't eat them. I'm adjusting much better than I thought I would to this no gluten thing. But it is a learning curve, and, being newly diagnosed, I am just beginning to climb that curve.

Any Ideas would be greatly appreciated, and I'm open to emails because it is soooo nice to know that I'm not ALONE :P !!!!

Any way thanks for any ideas

As far as pretzles go...a company called Ener-G makes a wheat free/gluten free pretzel. They aren't bad at all. I actually like them better than regular pretzles. They are kind of expensive, but sure helps for the cravings!! Enjoy!!

I am newly diagnosed with gluten intolerance, it's WONDERFUL to find this message board! I've been doing okay finding gluten free foods in my area, but one thing I can't find is a good bread. I want to be able to just buy a loaf of bread like I used to, and I want to be able to make sandwiches with it. I tried a rice pecan bread, but it was quite hard & sweet, & not great tasting to me. Plus the slices were tiny. Or do I just have to get used to making bread now? This is quite the learning process for me, although it's only been 3 weeks & I feel so much better already being gluten free! Any ideas are really appreciated!

mg5676,

Are you referring to Food for Life brand bread? It's the best bread I have tried so far, but then I happen to like a slightly sweet flavor to my breads. Have you tried warming up the bread slightly (10-20 seconds in the microwave)? This improves the texture dramatically. Just be sure you don't overheat the bread, or it will turn gummy! Yes, the slices are tiny, but have you compared the calorie count to regular bread? You wouldn't want a much bigger slice (unless you are really skinny, of course)! gluten-free breads are also rather fragile and do better when made in smaller loaves. I haven't tried baking my own gluten-free bread yet, but it is always an option. Good luck, and enjoy experimenting!

    • 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.  
    • Would you review this on Find Me Gluten free?  You can  use the app or just go to it on line. If the restaurant isn't listed, there is a way to suggest it.  I have done that and it works.  Many of us look at that site/ app
