Topics I've Started

Got Biopsy Results, Now Utterly Confused

06 October 2004 - 09:18 AM

So, my blood test was positive for antibodies.

I just got my biopsy results today by mail (doctor's office didn't even call!) and it says:
"Mild inflammation in stomach. Duodenum does not show Celiac Disease."

So, now what?

I have a theory and I'm wondering if this could be the case. Before I went gluten-free, I ate basically all gluten, all the time. All I ate was bread, pasta, and pizza. Seriously. Pizza, pasta, or a sandwich for lunch and dinner every day and muffins or pancakes for breakfast every morning. Could I have had antibodies because I was getting too much exposure to gluten rather than having Celiac's Disease?

Maybe I should--rather than staying gluten-free--change to a limited gluten diet? Like once a day eat something containing it and then go for another blood test in a few months and see what it says?

Recipe: Hamburger-rice Casserole

06 October 2004 - 08:32 AM

Here's an easy gluten-free recipe.

1) Preheat oven to 350.
2) Brown 1 lb hamburger in pan and then drain.
3) Bring water to a boil and then boil 2 cups of Uncle Ben's White Rice for about 5 minutes (it will only be partially cooked). Drain.
4) Combine the browned hamburger, partially cooked rice, and one jar of gluten-free spaghetti sauce (I use Prego Traditional) in a baking dish. Sprinkle grated parmesian over the top.
5) Bake for 35 minutes on 350.

Then serve! Pretty easy and it tastes great.

Looking For Pasta Recipes

03 October 2004 - 03:02 PM

I bought some Tinkyada pasta and I'm looking for good recipes.

How do you make macaroni and cheese with the Tinkyada elbows? What kind of cheese do you put on it?

Any other good pasta recipes?

Are There Any Books You Would Recommend?

A family friend who is a Celiac told me to read Against the Grain. I'm thinking though, could I learn anything from these books that I don't learn here on celiac.com?

Are there any books you would recommend?
