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.

    • So, LST my celiac sibling thinks I should see a naturopath to get additional food sensitivity tests. I think this is swell, but expensive for me. He had a panel done and was reacting to some foods he ate the most of. I have reached out to a local allergist and they do food testing but do not accept my insurance. I was going to make some more calls tomorrow. I actually do have mild reactive airway disease too which seems to go hand-in-hand with the allergists. I honestly had no idea, but makes since. What type of tests have folks had? I know I am not allergic to most foods as of November. My former GI doc ran a basic panel then but it seemed short. Has anyone had any luck with these? I read there is a difference between IGE and IGG tests. Anyone get a doc to order them and insurance to cover? I may end up having to save up for awhile to have this done with a naturopath. But I was off of payroll recently with all of this and the idea of waiting for a couple of more months to find out what other foods may be trigging me really sucks. I am off of dairy and soy, suspicious of lettuce and shrimp.
    • How about reaching out to your local celiac disease support group? http://www.houstonceliacs.org
    • Yes, I am in Houston, TX. Can anyone recommend a good GI in Houston, lots of experience with celiac?  
    • I am sorry to hear about your mother.   It is not so hard to get a medical doctor to order a celiac panel -- especially if your father was diagnosed with celiac disease.  Our family GP did not blink an eye when I first asked my daughter to be tested.    If you think your doctor will disregard your legitimate request, you can either fire him or put the request in writing and send it certified (attorneys love documentation!)  I agree that our doctors should support us.  I have a great GI, but my GP  is pretty clueless when it comes to celiac disease, but she admits it.    She does always order all the lab tests I request.  Perhaps it is because I come in with supporting medical documentation and evidence.  If she was not supportive to my satisfaction, I would find a new doctor.   Again, you can go gluten free in your own.   Chance are you have celiac disease.    But it is hard.  Really hard if you do not have the support of your family.  That is my concern.   Are you in the US?  
    • I've just read SO MUCH about the long, arduous process of getting a positive diagnosis through traditional medicine - I'm not sure I want to put myself through all that. Since my father WAS positively diagnosed - I carry the celiac gene and another gene that predisposes me to gluten sensitivity - and my fecal tests for gliadin were SO elevated - there are enough reasons for me to go to a gluten free diet. The true medical diagnosis would just make it easier for my family/friends to believe the necessity of it. My children are adults and not particularly health care nuts. I doubt they would take their own risk seriously without a medical diagnosis. I'm afraid my husband, while he is trying to be supportive at this point, will grow weary of all the things I no longer serve at meals and all the places we will no longer go to because there are not gluten free alternatives on the menu. A medical diagnosis would make it easier for him, long term, I think.  I don't have much faith in general in our western health care system. My mother died 6 months ago at age 82 after 4-5 years of many different health issues. She had given up the keys to her car in her late 70's after getting lost several times. I became her designated driver to all doctor appointments, procedures, hospital stays, etc. The incompetence and disregard I saw blew me away. I'm surprised any elderly people survive our health care system once they get on that revolving door. The reason I started seeing a naturopath is that I am looking for an alternative to medical doctors for most of my health issues as I age. I know there are some things I still have to see them for - and of course, they are essential in trauma and emergency situations. But I am on a quest to follow a more holistic approach to my health care. If this is the path I am choosing, then I have to follow my gut (no pun intended) in situations like this. I think the only reason I would go through the medical testing would be for other people - not me. It seems to me, that with so many people being gluten intolerant these days, a decent M.D. would listen to a patient that was adamant about their intent to live gluten free - positive celiac diagnosis or not (and especially with the gene and stool test results). I mean, they don't tell vegetarians they have to eat meat ... and vegetarianism is a personal choice. Sorry if I seem to be rambling ... this is all so new, and I'm trying to find my way.
