In Topic: What Are Your Symptoms When Glutened?

12 January 2011 - 08:53 PM

I don't have any glutening symptoms. Either that, or in 2.5 years, I have never been glutened. I have half a mind to purposely eat something with gluten just to find out, but I'm too chicken. And really, what would be the point? I avoid it as best I can, 100%.

In Topic: Question About Those Who Have Done Genetic Testing For Celiac

I don't personally see the point in paying a co-pay to find out what you already know: you have Celiac. Request a copy of the test results, and keep them in your medical records file at home.

Don't try to take yogurt - they consider it a liquid. I had to dump mine out :(

In Topic: What Did You Eat Today?

20 June 2010 - 08:33 PM

Today I ate:

Breakfast: Scrambled egg, Ore-Ida hash browns, 2 slices Oscar Meyer Center Cut bacon

Lunch: Trader Joe's rice pasta mac & cheese with tuna, strawberry rhubarb crisp with vanilla ice cream

Dinner: Grilled steak with A-1 Steak Sauce, boiled baby potatoes with olive oil and salt, grilled asparagus, red wine, more strawberry crisp for dessert

Kind of a HIGH CALORIE day, but it was Father's Day so I did a lot of cooking for my husband.

In Topic: Did You Have A Trigger That Started Your Symptoms?

02 June 2010 - 06:25 PM

Interesting topic!

I was diagnosed at age 42. Up until then, I had zero symptoms and could eat anything I wanted. Suddenly one morning I had a pain in my stomach just under my sternum, and it wouldn't go away. I tried eating crackers but it made it worse (gee, what a surprise!). I had this pain for a couple of weeks and called my doctor. He suggested a round of Prilosec and an appointment with a gastroenterologist. The Prilosec did help, and by the time I went in for the endoscopy, my symptoms were gone. I received the diagnosis two weeks later (pain was still gone), two days before a trip to Europe. I ate whatever I wanted in Europe - my last hurrah - without any pain at all. My bloodwork was also positive, so I reluctantly accepted the diagnosis and went gluten-free.

My trigger: I think it was stress. My daughter's best friend was killed in a terrible accident, two days later my father in law died, and my son was graduating from high school and figuring out where he wanted to go for college. Just a lot of stressful things happening all at once.
