Banquet Room In Newport, Ky/cincy Area

09 September 2012 - 11:20 AM

Hi, My son and his fiance are getting married in September of 2013 in the Newport Kentucky area. I'm looking for a place to host the rehearsal dinner. I was planning to eat before the event - I'm super-sensitive and paranoid about restaurants after taking a vacation and being sick for 3 months - I got glutened a few times in a row and just could not stop the nausea and diarrhea. So I never eat in restaurants. I have a glass of wine and enjoy the company.

However, my son wants me to enjoy the meal too and asked me to at least look for a place that can accommodate my needs. And he's right, this will be different from the norm - I can't come late or leave early and it will be a long evening.

I need a place that has a separate room for around 30 to 40 people.

Thanks for any suggestions!

Blood Test Results

26 June 2012 - 08:12 AM

I tried posting in another forum, but I don't think I gave enough info and maybe it was the wrong forum. I would appreciate any help.

I was uninformed when my journey began in 2006. I just knew that if I didn't eat wheat I felt better. I stopped gluten, with an occasional cheat and if I didn't cheat too often I didn't get sick. After six weeks on a gluten-free diet I had an endoscopy which, of course, was negative since I had been gluten free.

In 2009 I cheated and ended up in so much pain I went to the ER where I was diagnosed with colitis (CT scan showed inflamed colon). A year later a different doctor diagnosed me with celiac using blood tests and I am also positive for the celiac gene. He is monitoring my blood and says I am still getting gluten somewhere. The day before my latest blood test I was sick. I had eaten out - a supposedly gluten-free meal, but that was 2 1/2 days prior to being ill. The results were still in the normal range, however my doctor interprets the test as showing I had gluten.

If I had gluten in my system, would the antibody numbers be higher than they are? Do IGG and IGA test out zero when you've been gluten free? Should I be aiming for zero?

I really don't understand the results, as it looks like they are 5 and 6, but he says 6/30, 5/30. I don't know what that means. Here is what he said:

I am writing in regard to these suboptimal antigliadin test results, since at 30 =100%;
IGA 6/30 which reflects > 20% impact from gluten on the immune system.
IGG 5/30 which reflects > 16.6% impact from gluten on the bowel lining

Component
Latest Ref Rng 6/19/2012
GLIADIN AB, IGG
<11 U/mL 5
GLIADIN AB, IGA
<11 U/mL 6

These levels do document that these % of damage are happening to your immune and intestinal systems at this time.

I've worked so hard to be gluten-free, being extra diligent since February. I've only eaten out 3 times in the last 4 months and was extremely careful. I eat a very limited diet. I don't even eat gluten-free breads, pretzels. etc. I'm getting very frustrated and down. Thanks so much for any help!

Igg Iga Blood Test

I'm hoping you can give me some insight. I interpret my IGG IGA test results as negative, yet my physician does not. Here is what he sent me with his note:


I am writing in regard to these suboptimal antigliadin test results, since at 30 =100%;
IGA 6/30 which reflects > 20% impact from gluten on the immune system.
IGG 5/30 which reflects > 16.6% impact from gluten on the bowel lining

GLIADIN AB, IGA

Should I expect results of zero if I haven't been exposed to gluten?

Thanks so much for any insight!
