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!

    • Anxiously waiting
      Thanks heaps. I will def be going private if the wait is too long. I have done a little research but i thought a gluten intolerance and coeliac was the same lol. My iron levels are just below average apparently but she said not bad enough for me to be this tired.
    • How effective is HD skin biopsy after being gluten free for a year
      DH is celiac disease that appears on the skin (gluten triggered).  It does not appear when you are consuming dairy, which sounds like a separate issue for you.   A DH biopsy requires active lesions (new/fresh) from consuming gluten.  So, if you want to be tested via a skin biopsy you must go back on gluten.  Finding a dermatologist who knows exactly how to biopsy for DH is often difficult.  Be sure your Derm is knowledable and has biopsied for DH before. Why no endoscopy for now?  I bet your GI  knows that your insurance will deny the endoscopy.  After all, you tested negative to the blood panel.  Your GI should not even ordered the blood panel knowing that you had been gluten free for months.  You have to be consuming gluten daily for 8 to 12 weeks for the blood test to be accurate.   Did you ever test positive?  Why did your primary diagnose you?  Having the gene just means you can develop celiac disease.  Some 30% of the population carries the genes.  The gene test should only be used to help rule out celiac disease.  
    • How effective is HD skin biopsy after being gluten free for a year
      No one can say exactly how long you might be able to get a positive dh biopsy after having been gluten free as long as you have been. The Chicago Celiac Disease Center says this: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/im-scheduled-to-have-a-skin-biopsy-to-screen-for-celiac-disease-should-i-maintain-a-gluten-containing-diet-similar-to-those-who-are-being-screened-via-blood-or-intestinal-biopsy/ http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-is-a-gluten-challenge/ You said you had a flare of the plaque psoriasis -- that is NOT dh so why do you think the dh biopsy will show positive? Testing positive for the celiac genes does not mean you have celiac disease. 30+% of the population have the celiac genes but only very, very small fraction of those people do or will present with celiac disease. The gene tests are only used to rule OUT celiac NOT to diagnose it. Frankly, I can understand why your GI does not put any stock in your Primary doc's thinking you have celiac disease. A positive celiac gene and the boils in your armpits which the GI never saw and were never biopsied for dh but they resolved on a gluten free diet and so did your plaque psoriasis. That's all the GI has to go on. I don't know why you are pushing an endoscopy. If you've been eating strictly gluten free then an endoscopic biopsy for celiac will be negative.  Your PCP should have done a celiac blood panel on you back when you were still eating gluten rather than dx you based on the celiac gene you tested positive for.
    • How effective is HD skin biopsy after being gluten free for a year
      I've been gluten free for a year now and my gastro wants to wait for the endocopy until I'm eligible for the colonoscopy when I turn 50 later this year. I don't think she believes I have celiac, even though I tested positive for one of the genes associated with celiac and my primary has diagnosed me as having celiac. The gluten sensitivity blood tests came back negative, of course, since I was gluten free for 9 months at that time. Why is she waiting? At any rate, My digestive system has improved greatly, but when I reintroduced non fat Greek yogurt in my diet, the plaques psoriasis returned on my elbows. My primary believes it is dermatitis herpetiformis (as well as I, since before going gluten free, I used to get boils in my armpits) and I'm scheduled for a skin biopsy in 3 weeks. However, I eliminated dairy from my diet 4 weeks ago and the plaques psoriasis is healing like it did when I eliminated gluten from my diet a year ago. If the scar is reduced to eczema, does that mean there still are IGA deposits in my skin? I don't want to resume dairy since I experienced a cross reaction to the casein in cheese and found lactose was on that same list. So my question is, how long do the granular IGA deposits remain in the skin in order to have a valid skin biopsy test performed for dermatitis herpetiformis? Since it takes 1-2 years for dermatitis herpetiformis to heal on a gluten free diet and I just had a recent flare up, can I continue on my dairy free diet or should I resume eating non fat Greek yogurt for the next 3 weeks just for this skin biopsy?
    • Celiac Night Vision
      Thanks Cristiana. It was Mistyx7 and night driving. Migraine type is very personal but does not appear to be closely connected to celiac or my peculiar scotomas. If you think going gluten-free has improved it that deserves a separate topic!

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
