Manitoba :) very close to the sk border though (seriously... about 10km haha)

I love kinnikinnik products. their pancake mix is so good. I can't find it in my home town anymore though. I generally have to buy gluten-free products in a city. taste of Thai noodles are available everywhere though it seems. they're great if you're a Thai food fan. and on the topic of glutino- Wal-Mart now sells their products! in the "organic/natural" sections of the isles

In Topic: Symptoms - Thinking It's Celiac

I'm new to the forum, so I feel conflicted about giving any advice.. However, I believe it would be good for your daughter to be tested. Whether or not it's worth her having to deal with the symptoms again, well I think yes. If she's diagnosed now, for her entire life she can know for sure that she has to avoid all glutens. If she's undiagnosed, when she's older she'll likely eat glutens thinking, "What could it hurt?" There are a lot of foods that you can eat that are gluten free naturally. Soy milks, most tofus, meat if you're into that kind of thing, certified oats, basmati rice, all fresh fruit and vegetables, some chocolates even. Being on a whole foods diet is a wonderful way to grow up in my opinion, but she may, as I said, eat gluten when she gets older when she's out with friends or at school, not knowing the damage she could be causing.

That was more a ramble than anything, but in my honest opinion? You should have her tested. Yourself, as well.. if you decide the symptoms are worth it.

Thank you for your replies :)

I did just read that thread (still haven't had a lot of time to be on- I have an 8 month old daughter, and there's an abundance of information on the site!), and I didn't realize that even after thinking you had been gluten free for so long, you could still be causing yourself inner damage. I think I may just suck it up, deal with the symptoms another week, and make a doctors appointment to be tested.

I read somewhere that there are a certain group of blood tests you should ask for, I'll have to see if I can find it again..

I also should have added, I'm Canadian; we don't pay for things like blood tests and such. They're covered by our provincial governments, so long as you are registered with your provincial government. It's free of charge, so I've really no excuse not to be tested. If a doctor orders and endoscope or other tests post blood test results, I wouldn't pay for that either. One of the things I love very much about my country ^.^

For future reference, if I'm positive- ALL of my family should get tested? Mom, dad, sisters, niece and nephew..? I knew my own daughter would have to be tested when she's older, but I didn't realize that everyone should be expected to!
