Urgent trip to Santa Rosa tomorrow - daughter's health.

Looks like mine will go out on Friday if the world doesn't end ;)

Told you I was pulling anchor, but wasn't thinking I'd be chasing Santa's Sleigh!

Hey guys,

Colleen has asked me to pass this along to you. She's not feeling well after her infusion. :( I told her we're all sending her love and prayers.

She said:.

" G, Maybe you could do me a favor if you didn't mind. I can't use my playbook because of light sensitivity, but maybe put on the christmas card thread that I love the cards I'm getting and thank you."

Oh, dear! I would have written something in the card if I had known!

I mailed the cards today. These are not really Xmas cards. These are prints of paintings by an artist that went to grade school with my oldest. I had to write a check to Elton John to get them. I thought they would be interesting, hope you like them.

for those on the Christmas Card exchange....with all craziness that has ensued since I returned to a vertical position - our family Christmas Cards have morphed into New Year's Greetings -- for my silly card exchange I purchased beautiful photos in the local country store near a the spot I chose to hike with one of my sons today -- hoping the good ol' USPS is fast and they reach you all quickly. My mail was under hold while I was gone -- looking forward its delivery tomorrow :)

    • You already have an autoimmune condition which does put you at a higher likelihood of developing other conditions in the future, not necessarily celiac.  At any rate, I've been reading reports-- both research articles and anecdotal experiences from AI patients-- linking a gluten free diet with relief of symptoms, particularly a lessening of joint and muscle pain in those with RA, FMS, Lupus, and Chronic Fatigue.  So my point is, even if you don't have celiac disease, if being on a gluten free diet helps you, then stay on it.  As for the digestive issues, it may be worth seeing a GI for.  Lots of things can cause tummy troubles, not just celiac disease.
    • It is absolutely possible for non-Celiac gluten intolerance and/or gluten sensitivity to cause extreme symptoms. The difference between those and Celiac is that Celiac will cause actual small intestinal damage to the villi, while NCGI/gluten sensitivity can have extreme symptoms, there is no damage to the small intestine.  Other causes of bloating can be SIBO or small intestinal bacterial overgrowth.  The title pretty much says it all and you need antibiotics to help combat that. Basically, your small intestine's bacteria is out of whack and you have more bad bacteria than good. I know there is a test but have no experience with this. You may want to google it and read up on it and maybe ask a specialist about it too?  This is something they should be testing for anyway to figure out what is going on.  You could also have food allergies, as opposed to an intolerance like Celiac.  You can see why this is so hard to figure out sometimes! Are you sure you are completely gluten free?  This diet has a big learning curve and cross contamination is important.  Please take a look, if you already have not, at this link.  It was written by a previous member of the forum and although it is a bit lengthy, it is what you need to know about following the diet and living gluten free successfully. She did a very good job on it!  Even tiny amounts in your diet can still cause symptoms. http://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/91878-newbie-info-101/ Have you been tested for vitamin deficiencies or anemia?  These could offer a clue to see whether you are malnourished or not. Many people with celiac have both deficiencies and anemia.  Between testing for these and genetic testing to see if you carry a Celiac gene might help you to rule it out if you cannot have a scope done.  But you do remember that you need to be eating gluten for the scope? 
    • Celiac disease is a tricky rascal. Just when you think you've got it under control, it sneaks up and manifests into new and often unexpected problems. At least, this is what we have found over the last decade. From contacts with others who have Celiac disease, we know we're not alone. I'm in my early thirties and find that sometimes my body acts more like that of an old man's. View the full article
    • Thank you, Gemini.   Is it possible for non-celiac gluten sensitivity or intolerance to have this severe symptoms?
      I'm on gluten free diet two weeks now and no change... What are other causes of these symptoms beside food?
    • I am trying to decipher the test and it looks to me like the Total IgA is fine.  Your number appears to be in the middle of the reference range, which would be sufficient IgA for testing.  I am in America so your country's testing is a bit different from here....I really hope I got that right!  If you have severe enough symptoms of a GI problem, some doctors here would move onto a biopsy even with negative blood results.  I think if you cannot get a full Celiac panel done, then a scope with biopsy should come next. Severe bloating has a cause and they need to rule out a food problem. There can be other causes but food is usually a big trigger. Yes, keep us updated!  We are here to help.
