This section of the forum is devoted to those who have responses to gluten beyond the experience of the majority of celiacs. It should not be construed as representative of the symptoms you are likely to encounter or precautions you need to take. Only those with extreme reactions need go to the lengths discussed here. Many people with newly diagnosed celiac disease have a condition known as leaky gut syndrome, which can lead to the development of sensitivity to other foods until the gut is healed - which may take as long as one to three years. At that time they are often able to reincorporate into their diet foods to which they have formerly been sensitive. Leaky gut syndrome leads many people to believe they are being exposed to gluten when they are in fact reacting to other foods.

Can Only Eat White Potatoes And White Rice Without Pain
Have offered to be in charge of snacks for Christmas this year. That way I can buy lollies and chips that I can have and so can everyone else. Never much fun when I have my own bowls of stuff- other years when I've done this people forget and eat mine. Which is fine but I'd only got enough for me and if it all goes I can't eat "theirs"
Apparently it's cold meant and salads this year. Family member organising it said they will try to make the salads gluten-free. I asked them to let me know what they are so I can suggest dressings etc. Hopefully that way I can prevent needing to make my own version of something that could have easily been made gluten-free in first place if they asked me first.
So I had been to my dr about my tummy troubles and the first thing he suggested was it could be a gluten issue, and asked to draw some tests for gluten intolerance and celiac. The results have been posted in my online medical account, but I have yet to speak to my doctor about them. I am calling in on monday to talk to him or schedule an appointment to talk to him. Whatever he requires. Anyways, I have been waiting to see the results and I cannot make heads nor tails of them.
If I copy paste or screen shot the results, would someone be able to walk me through them a little so I can know what to expect when seeing the doctor? I would greatly appreciate it
