Topics I've Started

Gluten-Free Dating?

07 September 2012 - 08:11 PM

I'm a male in my late 20s who is trying to figure out the best way to deal with celiac disease when going on dates with women. Specifically, I was wondering what experiences people have had going on dates with people who don't have celiac disease. For example, is it best to avoid food-related first dates?

Recovery Time For Bowel Issues

22 July 2012 - 06:24 AM

I was wondering how long it takes after starting a gluten-free diet to see large improvements with bowel issues and bloating. I started a gluten-free diet two weeks ago in response to positive blood tests / confirming biopsy. Since then, I've been gaining weight and have more energy. However, I haven't seen as much improvement with bowel issues.

As far as this lifestyle change to gluten-free, I know I'm doing a pretty good job by not eating out, even at places with gluten-free options for now, and watching for cross-contamination by checking manufactures' practices for unclear items. I'm also watching for hidden sources of gluten, e.g. vitamins, soup bases.

Biopsy Odds

Anti-TTG IgA 63. Anti-Gliadin IgA > 100. Endoscopy showed inflammation and scalloping. What are the odds of the biopsy confirming celiac?

Thanks.
