I Have The World's Best Friend :)

8 posts in this topic

I met my best friend and her 2 kids at the Zoo yesterday with my 2 kids. I always buy lunch there, she always packs her own. Anyhow, after finding a fruit plate in the cafeteria (I was getting really excited about the fries, which are cooked in their own vat, but then I saw them dumping them into the same serving dish as the chicken fingers and serving them with the same scoop, sigh), we went out on the lawn to eat and God bless her, she pulls out a bag of rice cakes and cheese and tells me she is trying to cut down on bread! Part of it may be true, but I also know her well enough to know that she didn't want to sit there and eat bread in front of me! In fact, except for a cereal bar she had for her baby, everything she brought yesterday was gluten-free! I don't expect people to eat my diet, but just knowing someone cares enough to do that really touched me, but I shouldn't be surprised because she is just that kind of girl!

I went to my friends house for a BBQ, and my friend made lettuce burgers, made the boys keep the buns on the other side of the room and even had a gluten-free designated dishcloth for me set aside. I felt so loved. Those gestures mean so much.

I'm happy you had that experience.

You guys are lucky, that is so sweet :) I've had friends buy me gluten-free food before, which was really nice.

It's great when friends understand the diet you have to follow. My friends are super, they always ask questions before they serve food regarding how to keep it gluten-free if possible. It makes this disease easier to deal with when you have a lot of support.

My best friend had a gluten free birthday cake made for me. She works with a woman who makes all sorts of baked goods and she asked her to make me a gluten-free birthday cake. She is the most considerate and thoughtful person ever.

My best friend and my sister in law are very careful with my gluten issues and I love that they are.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
