and when Sylvia says this to me : "Pffft!"

it makes me laugh and I know she is really saying "Psshaw" or piffle!

:)

Now really, does ANYone still say Psshaw!!?? :lol:

The one that got me for a while was KWIM? :D I guess it's better than "you know"...... one of my pet peeves - NO, I don't.

or "piffle" for that matter ? :lol:

arrgh!! on the "you know what I mean?" <_<

I have a relative who punctuates every sentence with this ---and my sister and I mouth to each other "no we don't" --because she never really says anything. No full sentences whatsoever.

In 30 years, I still have no clue what this woman is talking about.

and FWIW ...to the OP, we have not really gone OT, as we are trying to amuse you during your difficult gluten challenge. ;)

Hey, I'm stumped again :blink:

Kite with insufficient momentum?

Kid with immature Mom?

Koalas wading in marsh?

something to do with a kangaroo or kazoo?

IMO (in my opinion) we are certainly OT (off topic) - hopefully making the OP (original poster) :D while laughing at ourselves.

uh oh ...well, now 3 of us are involved with these hijinks and shenanigans and hooliganism...and so, we should probably stop.

IMHO, FWIW, KWIM? so, let's KIO!

but, definitely do not lick the toaster oven handle.

Most of us (silently) agree, but do what you have to do and we can be your cheerleaders. :)

Make a "bucket list" of your favorite gluten containing foods - I forgot to add glazed old fashioned donuts to my list while I was being diagnosed - I hadn't had a donut like that for quite a while prior to dx and I really don't miss gluten very often, but boy does that image of a freshly made glazed old fashioned jump into my head at the strangest times

That's a good idea. I am getting fatter by the day though because I am only eating the gluten at night, and normally my big meal is lunch.

Honestly, if I could have one meal again (from "my other life") pre-DX...it would involve beef wellington and a pastry crust or something with phyllo dough. Because there is no way to re-create that--not that I have found anyway.

But everything else can be done gluten-free, I promise you! We have an in-house chef who will help you : love2travel.

Otherwise, I do not miss poison at all.

okay, good night and I say this with a bit of mixed emotions because I know it's making you feel icky..., "enjoy dinner".

Yowzers, if you can perform a multi-quote (something I still have yet to figure out after 2 years), then your brain frogs are laying low!

Hang tough, kid.

Erm, hit the "multiquote" button in the bottom right of each post you want to quote. Then when you are ready hit the "Add Reply " button at the bottom of the thread. Tis' easy-sleaszy.

    • I'll give my PCP a call tomorrow and see what they can offer. My only worry is the expense as anymore tests will put me behind in being able to afford to see the GI. I have high deductible insurance but get money put into my HSA. I'm still trying to pay off the CT scan though. Which is why I'm trying to pick and choose which poses the greatest risk for me right now and what can wait. (Though I would prefer not to wait on any of it.)

      I really do hope its only IBS. Though I always worry IBS is more or less a doctors way of saying "I have no clue" at that point. :C

      Again, I'll be sure to give my PCP a call tomorrow then and see what the options are. I can feel a lot better trying the blood work first. however, once that is done, do I still need to be on a gluten diet before the endoscopy? Also, is it ok if I still mildly reduce the gluten. As in, can I avoid a whole wheat pasta dinner, but still be eating the peanut butter crackers? That sort of thing. Again I guess that is more of a doctor related question. I just wasn't sure if in order to raise your chance, you have to mass consume gluten or not. (Its already in just about everything to begin with.)
       
    • Excellent point, GFinDC!!! I just assumed that Steph had the endoscopy and not just the antibodies tests.    
    • She (your PCP)  can order a celiac blood panel.  It might not be a complete panel, but it's a start.  Any medical doctor can order one.  A GI is needed for the endoscopy (ulcers, Celiac disease, h.pylori, etc.), HIDA scan (gallbladder)  or colonoscopy (IBS).   Since you just saw her, email/call/write a letter and ask her to order (lab) the celiac panel.  You could go to the lab before or after work.  Pretty easy!  
    • I just now saw the second reply and I see what you mean. Again, the issue is that I may have to go with the gluten until close to the end of the year.

      However, an idea did just come to mind, and that is, can my primary care doctor do such a test? I had normal blood work done, but they didn't really say anything about testing for celiacs. I can get an appointment with my primary care doctor much sooner than a GI.

      When I was talking to my PCP last, I asked her what I should expect as far as testing goes or what she may have been concerned about. Her reply was about a HIDA scan for the gallbladder but also any test needed in case of IBS or Celiacs. Just the way she threw that in there like an after thought and left me hanging kinda had me worried.
    • I am not a doctor that's for sure.  So, I can't even answer your questions.  If you know you have pre-diabetes, you probably are working with a doctor.  Can you email them and ask for a celiac blood panel?   You can work on the weight loss and diabetes -- that you can handle yourself now and take action.  I have diabetes and my glucose readings are fairly normal now without medication and I'm thin.  Being overweight does not cause diabetes.  It's either autoimmune (type 1) or you become insulin resistant (type 2).  You can cut out all sugar and  processed stuff ASAP to help take action and start walking 10,000 steps (helps with the insulin resistance).    But the prediabetes is not going to kill you in the next year.  Whatever's in your gut is more likely going to get you much sooner.  But heck, I'm not a doctor and I don't even know you!
