In Topic: Dominos Gluten Free Pizza

19 March 2014 - 07:55 AM

There are already a few threads on this you may want to read through.  Dominos says about this pizza that it is not for people with celiac disease.  They do not take any precautions to prevent CC, so it is quite risky.  They cook it in the same pan and oven and prepare it on the same line as the regular pizzas.  Do remember that just because something includes gluten free in the title, doesn't mean it is truly gluten-free.  This is more of unsafe pizza made on a gluten-free crust.  If you are not sensitive to cross contamination, I still wouldn't eat it, but that is me.  Especially when you are just starting off on the gluten-free diet you may want to limit your eating out especially when it is almost guaranteed contaminated such as this place.  Here are just a few of the many previous threads on this.

Thanks for the links! It was not that great of a piece of pizza anyway and certainly not worth risking it. After reading the thoughts from people on this thread looks like I should

stay away from it and that's a smart choice. Any good guaranteed frozen gluten free pizzas that you or anyone else reading my response buys at the grocery store? Thanks everyone.


In Topic: Question About Celiac Blood Test Results- Advice Needed.

Did they test for celiac when they did the old biopsies?

Just from my personal experience, my blood test showed barely positive but my biopsy showed moderate to severe damage. I was also anemic and found out after my diagnosis to have osteopenia and osteoporosis.

If you do another biopsy, be sure they take 6 or more samples.

Yes they did ,and it was negative for Celiac. Im not anemic but if I do go through with a biopsy I will be sure they take plenty of samples...:) Ive read though that Celiac can evolve at any time? So even though I tested neg then I could have it now.. Did your symptoms clear up when you started a gluten free lifestyle? How soon were you feeling normal again after changing your diet?

Can you get your doctor to order a complete celiac panel? That would be the first thing I would do if you are reluctant to have another endoscopy. Get the panel before you go gluten free as if you go gluten free first the panel will come back a false negative.

After all your testing is finished for celiac that you choose to do then do give the diet a good strict trial no matter what the results.

Hello:

 

I did call my gi doc now to check to see if the whole Celiac Panel was done and the nurse said it was. She explained to me the results. The IGA/TTG result came back a 6. And my Immunoglobulin A was a 241 in the healthy range ( 91-414)  was normal. She explained again the only way to be sure was to get the biopsy done. Are there any other blood tests to take? My doc ordered the Celiac Panel so I think this may be it for blood testing.......
