In Topic: I'm An Idiot.......i Also Need To Speak Up!

Those with on-celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS) can have almost as many long term health problems as a celiac....just minus the villi damage. Eating gluten can increase your chances of other health problems, many of which are permanent. Those with NCGS must avoid gluten.

What she said! For example, I'm NCGS and will never get my gums back to normal (they receeded horribly) and my enamel is so far gone its a miracle if I don't have a cavity at every dental visit. I am just past 4 weeks gluten-free again (after gluten trial for EGD), before that I had been "strictly" gluten-free 8 weeks but still had lots of symptoms because I wasn't avoiding CC or paying enough attention to labels. I have totally done what you did. The regret quickly followed. Lol I think it's a bit harder to get past the "being rude" feelings when you aren't actually diagnosed (Celiac or otherwise)...at least for me it is, for some silly reason I feel like I have to justify my reaction to gluten with something concrete. Well duh Amy, as if getting wicked sick for a week after even a tiny bite of gluten containing food isn't concrete?? *face palm* I guess what I'm trying to say is, it's easier to say "I have a disease that requires me to be a nazi about avoiding gluten." vs. "Gluten makes me sick as a dog so I avoid it at all costs." Especially right now when gluten free has become a fad diet option.

Anywhoo, don't beat yourself up too much (well, just enough to learn from this mistake 😉). Hope you're back to 100% quickly!

In Topic: 4 Weeks Gluten Free

I agree with the above about staying away from the gluten-free beer for awhile.  After 4 weeks back on gluten-free diet, I tried Redbridge last weekend and bleeeech!  I miss my vanilla porter.   <_<  Wine it is until I can forget! LOL

Well, I was going to say something (I've been gone all day and just saw that UC has returned to read all our posts)..but I am too late because you guys have said it all. I'll just say "what they just said".

Kiddo, GO SHOPPING and stop glutening yourself. :) Your attitude about this is all wrong.
It's not the worst thing on the planet to be a celiac.
Not by a long shot.

Guys who have a full fridge and a full bar and know how to cook are a helluva lot sexier than guys who do not.
Trust us women on this one.

Amen to that!

In Topic: Bad Experience At My Endoscopy Today :(

31 May 2013 - 04:36 AM

That sound awful - I'm so sorry you went through that :( Just out of curiosity are you red headed? It's been proven that red heads need more sedation and anaesthetic than other people to put them out. I found this out the hard way when my anaesthetic stopped working mid way through a c-section :( here's some interesting research on it: http://science.howst...-anesthesia.htm

I really hope you at least get something useful from your results xx

This has been my experience also. I always require more Novocain at the dentist, and needed extra anesthesia when I had my tonsils out, etc. I didn't realize this was a red head thing!

In Topic: Biopsy Results Inconclusive; Early Celiac, Sibo, Something Else?

29 May 2013 - 06:54 PM

How long were you gluten free prior to the challenge? How long was your challenge? Maybe it was too short, so that's why your results were inconclusive.

I was gluten-free 6 weeks before the blood work, and 8 weeks total before the challenge started. I suppose it's possible that my 4 weeks back on gluten weren't long enough to redo the damage undone by 8 weeks of healing, especially since I was "gluten light" prior to going gluten free for about a year...so many "ifs" and "buts" and "maybes" in my situation. One thing is for sure, that challenge was 4 weeks of hell, and, at this moment, I have no doubt that Celiac or NCGI is to blame. Luckily, I don't *need* a diagnosis for school/work/etc at this point. And I did decide to talk to my son's pediatrician at his next well check. Hopefully she is willing to run the Celiac panel if only for my piece of mind. :)
