Can I come and pace the floor over here? I got the call that all the kids results are in. The good news is that they are "triplets" (their sensitivity list is similar) but "they aren't going to be happy". For kids "not to be happy" as she said, I'm guessing milk and wheat (surely not veggies and fruit). As long as we do not add corn to our list, I will live!

They are 12, 10 and 8. Our specialist is calling them triplets because their list of sensitivity is nearly the same (thank goodness! -- now, hopefully, that is like mine). People have always joked about them looking like the same boys but at different ages -- maybe that is just their inside wiring? I'm thankful that their list is similar. I would lose my mind if all 3 were different. She was giving me warning that it was a little long :blink: but hopefully it is not extreme. We will talk in her office on Thurs. I'm just nervous because I have a list of 9 things. I don't want 9 different things on their list.

It might not be bad. I am intolerant to 21 different things but many are things I would never eat. Like fish. And there are some herbs and spices which are more commonly used in Italian food. Mexican food is my favorite so that's not a problem unless dining out. I don't think I could eat in an Italian place unless I just had plain gluten-free pasta.

Wow! She wasn't kidding when she said I had triplets. All 3 came back allergic/sensitive to milk, eggs, wheat/gluten, soy then some misc items.

    • Acne are not itchy or only mildly itchy and they look like red bumps with or without white centers. The bumps are quite separated from each other. What did you start to eat after going gluten-free? More fruits and sugary foods? This can trigger acne.  http://www.ehealthstar.com/conditions/acne-vulgaris Dermatitis herpetiformis can be very itchy and the bumps are more close together and they tend to crust over.  
    • What about Xanthan gum?  It really bothers me, so I avoid most commercially processed gluten-free breads, etc.  Never bothers my hubby though.  
    • I use to get them before I went gluten-free.  I stopped eating oats because it also does give me canker sores and causes my toes to get cracked underneath.  
    • I had quite a few of the medical problems that you have before I figured out that gluten was the problem. I can’t do basic math or writing when I eat gluten also I get depressed, irritable, low energy, etc. The best route to go is to do an elimination diet and monitor how certain foods affect you. I eliminated MSG (Monosodium Glutamate), Nitrite, and oat based on the reactions that I get once I consume them. You must be disciplined on a gluten free diet, there is not such a thing as –It is just one cookie! If you can manage to go 100% gluten-free for three weeks and you see those problems going away, you will have a good idea if that is the cause of your problems. The blood test I did after being gluten-free for two years came back negative so the doctor just make me feel that I was crazy and making things up. I have a stool test done which came back with elevated igA also a gene test indicating I have two genes that code for gluten sensitivity. My lactose intolerance went away too, eating a lot of cheese now. Rash in arms? gone, Brown spots in teeth? Gone, Intestinal noises? Gone, Lack of bladder control? Gone, Constipation? Gone, and a lot others.   
    • Oh you're most welcome!  Another thing --- no steroids, oral or injected for 2 months prior to a dh biopsy. Lay off any topical steroid creams for 2 weeks prior. Really, stand your ground with them. It would also be great if you can get a friend or family member to go with you in case they take the biopsy from somewhere that you can't see such as the back of your neck. Your friend/family member can watch to make sure they don't take it directly ON a lesion. Do you have a primary care doc? You can also go to that doc & ask for a full celiac panel PLUS an eTG or TG3. 60% of people with dh test negative on the celiac blood panel but maybe you're one of the 40% who will test positive. It's worth a shot.
