#718388 Some Questions About Gluten Reactions...

Posted by on 24 July 2011 - 05:55 AM

I think you have answered your question. Don't eat food prepared by others. You may find a place to eat that is safe, one day.... :)

Bring food to other houses just for hub or eat before you go.

#718383 Hi Im New

It's not so strange to find negative blood test in an adult person...only a colonscopy often reveals this disease...
My advice is to eat normally the food containing gluten because in this way there isn't the risk to distort the biopsy's result...

That is incorrect. A colonoscopy does not diagnose Celiac. You need an endoscopy with multiple biopsies to have any chance of finding Celiac damage. A doc might do a colonoscopy at the same time to check for other problems.

#718305 Any Way To Help Celiacs That Have Been Impacted

Posted by on 23 July 2011 - 01:49 PM

E Joplin animal shelter was in a contest to win $15,000. They really need it now. They need votes to win money.


Forgot to update: got a message that the shelter didn't win that week. Very disappointing until I got to the bottom of the email. They gave them $100,000!

I agree with Scott. If they really worked, they wouldn't be selling them on the internet.

#718001 Pumpkin Bread Recipe

Posted by on 22 July 2011 - 06:47 AM

This sounds great! It sounds like its got some good nutrition and the only sodium is in the butter (which I could sub for unsalted). I need low sodium for my mom who isn't wanting to eat.

What size is the can of pumpkin? I have seen 2 sizes of other brands.

Apparently the celiac test results are not in and take 2-3 weeks. Regular bloods are all normal - no signs of anaemia, inflammation (chrones) etc. Colonoscopy brought forward to end of August. Can a colonoscopy confirm Celiac??

Colonoscopy looks at the wrong end. You need an endoscopy with small bowel biopsies to diagnose Celiac

#717803 The Funny Pages - Tickle Me Elbow - The Original

Posted by on 21 July 2011 - 09:34 AM

Well I just got the latest on where they are. I did some figuring and I don't think they will be here until 7 or 8 at night. So my new plan is to just leave all the lights off and pretend to be asleep. All these boxes are bothering my allergies and I will need to take some Benedryl. I can sleep through pretty much anything when I take a couple benedryl. :D

Hub can tell them you aren't feeling well. He can meet them if he wants or tell them he has to get some stuff done quietly while you sleep. Maybe some stuff from his job since he has to take a day off & they are terribly busy right now?

Vegas is sooo hot right now. Is there somewhere else we could meet? Maybe Jess's house? WE could commune with the chickens.

Posted by on 20 July 2011 - 05:59 PM

I can not have these! They are too dangerous! I can not stop eating them!

Seriously, if I had found these before going gluten-free, I would have eaten them.

My troll, Ima Ceelee Ackcure, says this is all a bunch of lies and she has dubious research from her uncle to prove it.

#715933 Is Contamination Unlikely?

Posted by on 12 July 2011 - 11:32 AM

I'm sorry you're still feeling sick. You are probably not getting CC if your TTG has dropped back to normal. What your Dr. probably didn't tell you is that a Marsh 3 biopsy typically takes a couple years to heal, and can take as long as five years if the damage is really bad. At three months with the TTG down, now your body can start to repair damage.

I also had to go casein-free/soy-free when I first got off gluten to be rid of the stomach trouble. I could only digest those foods after about a year gluten-free. You might try eliminating some of the common problem foods like dairy, soy, and corn to see if any of those are making you feel ill from non-celiac intolerances.

That's what I was going to say! :)

#715621 Should I Still Call It Celiac Anyway?

Posted by on 11 July 2011 - 08:38 AM

Okay, so my blood work came back negative for celiac, and because I respond so well to the gluten-free diet, my GI dr wants to diagnose me as gluten sensitive (just like he wanted to diagnose me with IBS before I requested the test :rolleyes: ). I'm still firmly convinced that the test result is false because...

1. I had to request it myself so I have little faith in how often my dr. or his lab sees the test to have the experience to run it correctly.

2. My grandmother was positively diagnosed with celiac. :D

3. All my symptoms fit and are being relieved by a gluten-free diet.

So my question is, because I'm officially diagnosed gluten intolerant, do others (i.e. restaurants, family, friends) in general respond more seriously if you tell them your gluten intolerant, or that you have celiac disease?

Tell them Celiac Disease. And if they don't understand, tell them wheat allergy. I know Wendy's workers understand allergy. You really don't have to explain the whole medical history to anyone but us.

Please notice that this info is 5 years old. Products and maufacturing practices change. You need to read the ingredients, maybe check the current website or speak with the company.

#715177 Advice Getting Our Granddaughter Tested

Posted by on 08 July 2011 - 02:56 PM

I think call the pediatrician. Just be aware that many of them don't want to be confrontational. Even though this could be considered neglect, many don't want to get involved. It's the law but a doctor could rationalize as its not diagnosed, etc.

Perhaps you could get your son alone and talk to him? You might let him know that if she continues with whatever may be wrong with her, when she is in school the teachers will notice. If he refuses to get her help then, they will have to call CPS, its the law.

I don't think you should threaten to call social services yet. But it is something to think of in the future. Are you prepared to take custody at some point? The fiance sounds like a problem.

Good luck! It is frustrating to see someone doing the wrong thing & you can't so much.

#715020 Just Got Fecal Test Report Back, I'm Allergic To Everything?

Posted by on 07 July 2011 - 07:10 PM

This is purely my opinion based on unscientific feelings. I met the Enterolab doc. I was excited to hear from him. Saw him speak. Left at the intermission. He was a bit too slick for my tastes. I never felt he gave us enough info to understand the way the tests work. I think there is something to testing poop. It is what our body is rejecting. I would take the results with a grain of salt as the saying goes. Use them as a starting or place to start a trial.
