thank you all very very much. not only for the knowledge and advise but also for helping me correct my outlook on my dr, and on the possibility of having this condition. Here i should be thankful for a dr that is investigating, and for possibly catching this before it does severe dammage, and instead i'm griping because i don't want to give up pasta.
Thank you very much indeed.
Schar pasta is the best. It's available at most Walmarts in the gluten-free section. Has the same texture as regular.
I am reminded of a comedian I saw on Comedy Central a few weeks ago who was Dx with celiac and told he must go gluten-free. When he described gluten-free pasta, he started chewing on the microphone cord!
Some are like that (I'm looking at you: corn pasta) but the Schar is really very good.
