That is extreme! We get our groceries delivered to the door and we get the gluten free stuff packed in with the gluten things all the time. If I rang up and asked them not to do that they would think I was a sandwich short of a full picnic

In Topic: How Do I Make My Family Realize The Severity Of Celiac?

I agree with the other comments, it's only a week! Do you not eat the same meals? If I prepare a meal when family stay, everyone eats the same thing (and if anyone staying has an allergy I always respect that and cater for their needs). I would feel terrible if I'd made someone else ill through not catering for their intolerances or other dietary problem.

In Topic: Fixing My Vitamin D Levels

I can understand that. I have found that I need to take supplements all the time, as I don't absorb enough if certain vitamins and minerals. Before you get pregnant you should get all the levels checked, and take your doctor's advice on which supplements you can take whilst pregnant.

Mine used to be low too. How long have you had celiac disease? It can take a while to build yourself up again from a host of deficiencies (vitamins and minerals). I wouldn't advise a tanning bed, these carry their own health risks without adding to what you have already. Supplements are a much safer alternative.

In Topic: Wonky Blood Tests Esp. Liver Enzymes Tests (Or Liver Function Tests In The Uk)

Thanks Cristiana,

So I'm now a member of the wonky blood test results brigade . I will be speaking to my doctor on Monday, so hopefully I will find out then if it's the same as elevated blood protein.

It seems we all learn from each other when we pool our resources. I would have hoped that by now though, my test results would have improved, being diagnosed in November 2011, but there again, it might be that I was misdiagnosed with IBS in 1983 and my gut has not fully repaired. All in all, the posts on this thread are quite enlightening.
