AM for me - I am an early morning person. I go for my daily walk at 6 AM. Definitely NOT a night owl and am in bed by 10 PM.

You?

That would do me in. I do have serious insomnia so I rarely sleep well but I still make myself get up every day at the same time. I just love mornings - they are new and full of promise. And cooler! Oh, in winter when it is -40F I do NOT bundle up for my walks until about noon but I still get up early. Now I've got to put that horrific wintery thought out of my mind...blech. :angry: It's coming up in practically a couple of days.

I do not do mornings. Like, as in preferably I don't get up before noon. I spent about 2 years working first shift at a gas station full time and it took copious amounts of coffee to get me to be that wonderful perky person all my regulars loved. I can function if I need to after a while, but this while 7 am thing I've been doing? Yeah, it's even too early for the kid I watch so when he passes back out so do I! I'm more of a 2-4 am bedtime kind of girl.

I have been a night person all my life. I remember when I was a little kid before I ever even started school, hearing Mom and Dad turn off the 11 o'clok news and come to bed.

I've always had trouble getting to sleep at night, but in the daytime I can close my eyes and be asleep within a minute.

Now that I own a business, I will never be able to sleep in the daytime again. :( So as a result, I am tired ALL the time. I get up early, but only because most nights I am so wiped out I'm in bed by 8 or 8:30. So I get up around 5, but usually take a nap at 6:30. Then I get up permanently around 8, jump in the shower, and come open the store.

Life? WHAT life? :lol:

That's so funny Bart. I'm the same way during the day. If it's before about 4 in the afternoon if my head gets anywhere near anything it can touch I'll be out like a light in an instant. How do people like us end up in this "day life" crap? :lol: I feel like a zombie when I have to get up before noon. At least you're doing something amazing though, music makes the world go round.

    • I think the idea of grinding your own at home stems from the thought that flavored coffees might be ground on the same machines.  The grinders in the grocery are not cleaned between uses.  However, I have not found a flavored coffee bean that had gluten, so it's probably not a real concern.  For coffee that comes from a factory ground, I wouldn't worry at all.   Machines would be cleaned between flavors and nothing but coffee could be made on the machines or even in the same building ( everything made would taste/ smell like coffee). if you still have doubts - I went to the International Celiac Disease Symposium a few years back.  This is held every few years in different countries for medical professionals that study and treat Celiac.  They present research, etc.  All food served was gluten-free.  We drank a lot of plain, already ground, coffee!  A lot!   Coffee is not on any lists as a gluten containing food.  Talking legitimate organizations - not some blogger or pseudo- science website.   After all this, if you still doubt that coffee is gluten free...... Then don't drink it!  It leaves more for me!    
    • To answer some of your questions.... Non celiac gluten sensitivity does not cause any damage to the small intestine so that is not the source of the "little holes or bumps".  You need to get her records including the report of the endoscopy to see exactly what it says as well as the pathology report of the biopsies. You should always get medical records anyway & keep a copy for yourself. How many biopsies did he take? There should be a minimum of 4, ideally 6. The small intestine is very vast even in a small child. An adults is the size of a tennis court! That's a whole lot of territory so biopsies can miss damage especially when enough of them are not taken! She has 2 positives on the serum panel. This crap about "weak" positives should be thrown out of the nomenclature! A positive is a positive, weak or not! Her DgP IGG is way over the range and extremely telling. As far as my knowledge goes, there is nothing else that causes a positive DgP IGG other than celiac disease. False positives are really rare and to have 2 false positives would be astronomically rare! You are right & smart that she really does need an official diagnosis! IMHO, keep her on gluten for right now. Get a second opinion pronto & I believe you'll be able to get her a dx based on the 4 out of 5 rule if nothing else. I wouldn't think it's going to take more than a month to get to see another doc for a second opinion. Then you can take her off gluten. Kids heal up really fast, way faster than us old geezers! I'm sure as others  wake up & get on their computers they will be along to voice their knowledge. I am in the eastern time zone & rise before the birds so I was on here early. Hang in there mom! You're doing the right thing!
    • Now that my initial rage has calmed a tad.... your daughter has to fulfill 4 out of 5 of the diagnostic criteria. Second opinion can do a gene test. If positive, then she will have4 out of 5 of the dx criteria to dx without a positive biopsy. See: http://www.gastro.org/news_items/a-biopsy-should-not-be-required-to-make-the-diagnosis which says in part: The presence of signs and symptoms compatible with celiac disease. Positive serology screening (high serum levels of anti-TTG and/or EMA). Presence of the predisposing genes HLA-DQ2 and/or –DQ8. Histological evidence of auto-insult of jejunal mucosa typical of celiac disease. Resolution of the symptoms and normalization of serology test following the implementation of a gluten-free diet.   Also see: http://www.tenderfoodie.com/blog/2014/5/1/dr-fasano-on-new-gut-autoimmune-research-autism-clearing-up.html She can get a dx after her symptoms resolve on a gluten-free diet!
    • OMG!!!! The doc wants her to get sicker & sicker & do further damage so he can diagnose her? Don't do me any favors doc!!! I'm so spitting med right now I can't even speak! Find a new doc, take the records & get a second opinion. Maybe the next doc will have a freaking brain & dx your daughter. She should be dx'd! This is absurd in the extreme. The very least that should happen is the doc give her a dx now & then in a year or 2 have her do a gluten challenge & do a biopsy all over again but seriously, that would be just as cruel as what he's doing now. He's an ASS!
