I just got an email today from Living Without Magazine that the August/September issue is available as a FREE Download. Offer expires on Sept. 14 so if you're interested in taking a look at this magazine, this is your opportunity. At the moment it's the second item shown on the page.

Personally I subscribed to it shortly after diagnosis and really enjoy each issue.

Thanks, Sylvia. I know you're being helpful, but I wanted to add a note for others, that it does require you to give them your name and address and email address. Before doing that, I clicked on their privacy policy, and since it was somewhat long, I didn't feel like spending 20 minutes reading it so I just closed that tab in my browser.

I'd be interested in reading an issue, so I may go back later and see if their privacy policy is acceptable.

Actually I've never looked at their privacy policy but I'm already on everybody and their brother's email and/or mailing list, who in turn then sell my name and address to even more companies so I don't worry about it. That said, Living Without is a reputable publication and they will not ask for your credit card number for this free download.

It's a great magazine. Many of the articles are so helpful, I bring them to my GI doctor to read and he gives them to his patients.

I highly recommend it.

As it turns out, when I clicked enter with my email address, apparently I signed up to receive their emails, though I didn't complete the 2nd page with my address.

On the 'thanks for confirming your email' message, there was no link at all to unsubscribe. Then I got another email offering dining cards, with a link to order them, but no link to be removed from their email list. I finally sent an email to their customer service address to be removed from the list.

They do send out emails with free recipes of the week and links to other articles of interest without subscribing to the magazine. A lot of us find those useful.

If you're interested in checking out some info on their website, look here: http://www.livingwithout.com/ Some articles, of course, are limited to subscribers but others are available to everyone. They have a lot of recipes on their site, too, as well as substitutions for various ingredients and flour mixes. Really this is not a publication you need to be concerned about or we'd all be avoiding it.

The download is free and you don't need a credit card. I live overseas so my address doesn't fit in their page. I just used a fake mailing address and my real email to get the download. No problem! Just make sure to untick any boxes where they say they will send you mail if you don't want to be on the mailing list.

    • 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 ...
