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 found when I went gluten free I started eating more dairy and that gave me worse stomach aches and bloating than the gluten did. So now I have to avoid gluten and dairy.  Maybe you have a similar problem with something you are eating.  I hope you feel better soon.  
    • Hi! I received my "official" celiac diagnosis last week. I had an endoscopy last month that was originally looking for ulcers and h. pylori, but they did some biopsies of my duodenum since they were in the neighborhood and the biopsy came back "consistent with Celiac's disease" and later. They urged me to get my blood checked and follow up with my primary doctor. My blood work came back negative, but my doctor was confident it's Celiac so told me to stay away from gluten. I've been completely gluten free (or to the best of my knowledge) for 2 weeks now, and my results are mixed. At first, I felt great! My stomach was no longer CRAZY bloated once I stopped eating pasta and bread, my acne started healing, and the red rash on the back of my arms started to fade. That was the first few days. Lately, though, my acne is once again flaring up and I've been SO EXHAUSTED. I feel so tired all the time. Even now I have fatigue in my head, limbs, and I could hardly walk or move my body earlier today. I'm overweight and I like to go to the gym, but what used to be an easy workout for me is kicking my ass! I used to go to the gym and tear it up: HIIT on the treadmill followed by 40 minutes of heavy weight lifting. Now I can hardly finish 3 reps in my first set without feeling like a nap. I can't run anymore because my body feels clumsy and heavy. Also, I'm still bloated. I don't suffer from painful, acute bloating, but I struggle to pass gas and I look like I have pregnant belly. I think I'm also retaining water all over my body, and I'm not sure if that's normal? For whatever reason, I have this belief that water is mainly retained in the core and not arms, legs, and face. Anyway, I'd love to hear what you have to say/what you've experienced. Is this typical to first going gluten free?
    • Thanks Stephanie & Gemini for the info. that the 4 of 5 doesn't apply to children. I wasn't aware of that until now. 
    • I think the posters above have given you very good information and I will throw in my 2 cents worth.  I am surprised that they did not test her DGP IgA also.  I am sure that would have been positive.  They switched off with antibody classes and usually they do both tests for both antibodies.  IgA is more specific to Celiac but the IgG is also useful.  The testing shows your daughter is producing antibodies to the gluten in her diet. (DGP IGG). THe tTg shows positive for some damage or inflammation. You know........your daughter is only 4.  She hasn't been on the planet or eating gluten that long. It can take years for enough damage to occur for it to be able to be found on biopsy.  I would say it is highly likely that this is Celiac, especially with her symptoms. But because the damage hasn't graduated to bad enough yet, they won't diagnose her. I think you need to do what others have said and get all copies of testing and find someone else who will take a look and give a diagnosis, especially if they have you do a dietary trial and her symptoms go away.  That might be the only recourse if you want faster proof. I know I would want faster.  I would not really be happy if I thought I had to keep feeding her something that was making her sick.  If you keep her on gluten long enough, the diarrhea will probably show up. BTW.........the criteria mentioned regarding diagnosis does not apply to kids.  I know it's silly and stupid but most leading Celiac specialists do not go by this criteria for kids.......adults only.  Keep that in mind because it might come up.  You could recognize it but they might not. Have you considered gene testing, to help bolster a diagnosis? As far as false positives go, it's the other way around. False negatives happen more frequently than many people think.  It's a recurring theme here.  With her symptoms, which is what I had, a bloated belly and tummy aches are telling.  Have they tested her for lactose intolerance?  That can cause similar symptoms, although it sure won't raise those 2 blood tests.  Keep looking for Celiac because there are many red flags here.
    • This 4 out of 5 criteria does not apply to children. I was never given a reason why, but it isn't.     That said, you may try to get a second opinion from another GI who may be willing to give her a firm dx.  We were in your boat 6 years ago and while I'm sure I'll get slammed for it, I wish we had kept gluten in our kiddos diet till he scoped positive for a variety of reasons.  Again, even family is different and you have to find what is best for you!
