In Topic: Is It Normal For Doctors To Discourage Celiac Testing?

04 April 2013 - 06:53 PM

I'm very interested in this... My doctor also had me avoid the test, saying their wasn't a genetic history for Celiac for me. Apparently having more proof before hand justifies the expense more to him, but he suggested I try the gluten free diet. Almost a year later, and it's working great for me. However, my symptoms just kicked in from something I ate (I'm not overly careful when I go out to eat) and now I don't know what it is. So-my question for you with the testing experience...


How long do you have to regularly consume gluten for, in order to take the tests efficiently? 

I read somewhere that six months, ingesting gluten every day (I believe they said a slice of bread/day), was the best way to get accurate results. Any other thoughts?


Nausea/gas/migraines/muscle pain for six months doesn't sound appealing. I'm not even handling the first day of it well.

In Topic: Tyson Gluten Free Breaded Chicken Nuggets And Strips

03 April 2013 - 04:46 AM

I have been getting them from the Walmart in my town. It was amazing when I first found them last November. They are $5.80, i think, for 27 nuggets. Not bad, in my opinion. They recently put $0.55 off coupons on all of the bags, too.  :D  They are NOT near the regular Tyson products in Walmart. There is a frozen section at the store near me called "Health Entrees," which now has a whole frozen pantry of gluten free options, like Van's waffles and Amy's frozen meals, along with some others that I had never seen before. Also found a new frozen fettucini alfredo meal that is delicious (for frozen alfredo).
