Ripped from the headlines! Celiacs suffering easily avoided!

I've recently discovered, after consulting with many, many specialists in the field of fictalneurology, that many celiacs can have an adverse reaction to Pixie dust, in the same way that they would react to gluten. Pixie dust contains small amounts of atomic particles, some of the exact same ones found in the gluten protein! It is a common concern of many smart persons that we poor celiacs could be suffering from accidental pixie poisoning or fairy-related exposures every day. After talking with self-proclaimed functional neurologist and brain meats expert Dr. Billybob McGulch (PHD in Fine Arts, Jazz and Tap dance), he has come to the conclusion that many of us are needlessly suffering. His first recommendation is to send about 20 gallons of our blood for testing to the labs of Dewy, Cheetum & How for extensive allergy exposure tests, for the low price of $19.95! (per gallon) Results will include not only intolerance testing to pixies and faires, but also trolls, leprechauns, hobgolins, and sprites.

He further recommends applying yourself with his patented "Pixie Repellent" ($29.95 + 8.95 S&H) guaranteed to work. If it doesn't, he will provide a full refund for the unused portion, providing you provide proof of pixie exposure.

Until such time, it is recommended that Celiacs avoid all pixie-populated areas including glens, bogs, heaths, meadows, barrows, briars, marshes, and mires. Keeping exposure to a minimum is the first step toward healing! And be sure any body glitter is labeled "PF" for pixie-free!

Waitaminute.. I was promised that the subatomic nano-particle crystal pendant I bought from Wylde & Crazee would protect me from pixie dust. I followed their directions exactly. It took me forever to find a fairy ring in an oak forest to bury it for a lunar cycle. Are you saying I'm still suffering from pixie exposure?

i did, but it was deleted fast. someone was quick.

switching topics--

What irks me is the amount of misinformation on the internet regarding celiac. It is so confusing even when you know the facts. I think having this site is very helpful because collectively we are going to have better information that we can have as an individual.

Yeah, may want to keep posts like that in the funny forums.

And speaking of weird information, why is it chiropractors are suddenly also nutritionists? That's like my podiatrist doing Lasik surgery on the side.

This thread, unfortunately, is about coffee. If you would like to start one about chiropractors and what or why they are qualified, you may. If it is a serious discussion, you could put that in the Doctors section.

    • You are right, the tests could be invalid.   All the celiac tests require you to be on a gluten-containing diet.  It is up to you to decide if you want to go gluten free.  You can do it.  Believe me, I know.  Hubby is not officially diagnosed.  He went gluten-free 15 years ago, based on the rather poor advice from my allergist and his GP.  It worked though.  But he would be the first to tell you that I have had way more support in terms of family and medical.    We think he has it.  Both of our families are riddled with autoimmine disorders.  I am the first to be diagnosed.   My Aunt went gluten free per the advice of her Chiropractor.  Her other doctors never suspected celiac disease.  The diet obviously worked for her.  Her daughter (my cousin) is a nurse.  She had an endoscopy but they did not check for celiac disease.  She chose to go gluten-free too since it worked for her mom.  Both will not do a gluten challenge.  However, my diagnosis has helped them get proper medical treatment.  My Aunt is very active in a celiac support group.    Now everyone in my family knows about celiac disease.  My own niece was just diagnosed with Crohn's, but her GI did test and will continue to test her for celiac disease.  You can develop additional autoimmune disorders at any time.   So far, a few other members have been tested.  No one else had had a celiac disease diagnosis yet.  Time will tell.  If I can save someone from the misery of struggling to get a diagnosis, then I can feel good.   Now, an official diagnosis will help you adhere to the diet .  You can get follow-up care.  Get checked for other things like SIBO, H. Pylori and cancer.  But ultimately, it is up to you.   Whatever you decided to do, please consider a family health history chart.  You might someday help a grandchild.   The stool tests?  In all my research, leading celiac experts do not recommend them.  http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/why-dont-you-recognize-tests-stool-tests-or-otherwise-for-gluten-sensitivity-that-are-currently-available-through-companies-like-enterolab-or-cyrex/ gene testing?  Some 30% of the poulation carries the celiac genes.  It just tells you that you have the chance to develop celiac disease.  It can not diagnose you.    
    • The procedure is a breeze. You will go in, be sedated and go to sleep for a short nap and then it's over. Some people will have a bit of a sore throat but not everyone does. For me the hardest part of the endo was not being able to drink coffee when I got up. You seem to have been back on gluten for long enough to have the test but as CLady said there is a good chance your blood work may be negative. In your case you may want to continue eating gluten after the biopsy at least until you get your blood results. If they are negative consider going a bit longer and getting them redone.
    • I think the gene tests are accurate.  Not sure if thier interpretation of them is.   If you actually think have Celiac, you need to know that.  You  need to know how careful you must be.  You need a diagnosis to get gluten-free food in hospitals or nursing homes (if you can find one that does gluten-free food).  Because thsese "stool tests" are not medically accepted, it is unlikely that a real medical facility will consider you to have Celiac.   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/why-dont-you-recognize-tests-stool-tests-or-otherwise-for-gluten-sensitivity-that-are-currently-available-through-companies-like-enterolab-or-cyrex/
    • Why would your doctor order an endoscopy and check for celiac disease, but not order a celiac panel?  Had you been gluten free already?  
    • Thanks cyclinglady ... just wondering, do most of the people on this forum believe the Enterolab stool / gene testing to be non-trustworthy? Or are you just recommending a diagnosis from my MD so that she is also treating me with full belief/knowledge of my condition? I've been gluten free now for 2 weeks - by the time I get in to my doctor, she orders the bloodwork and I get to a lab it could be another 2 weeks before the bloodwork is done. From what I understand, just a month of gluten free eating could skew the results of the blood test. Supposedly, the stool tests are much more accurate. I hate to go backwards and start eating gluten again just so I can have a blood test done that may or may not substantiate the results of the stool / gene testing. I'm so confused ...
