Her Celiac Disease "went Away" ?

07 December 2007 - 09:50 AM

A new girl at work asked me why I ate my lunch without a bun, and I told her it was becuse of Celiac Disease. She said "Oh yeah, I know about that, I had that when I was little, but it went away...." and I just looked at her. She said that she was "some kind of miracle baby" and I asked if she had follow-up testing and she insisted that she did...but I think maybe she never actually had Celiac, you know? I don't know, but it just pisses me off, because I worry that the other people at work won't take me serously now about CC and stuff like that. Anyone else heard such nonsense?

Please Help, My Sister Is Pregnant And Won't Get Tested For celiac disease

07 November 2007 - 12:38 PM

I have celiac disease, and my paternal grandmother had it. My father has all of the symptoms, and says that he talked to his doctor about it, but he won't change his diet, because he "doesn't care". Now that attitude is rubbing off on my sister. She is 6 months pregnant, and has lost 17 pounds (not gained!). She won't get tested. She says that she doesn't get diarrhea, so she doesn't have "my stomach problems". I have begged her, and offered to pay for the dr's visit. It doesn't help that on her first visit I begged her to just bring it up to her doc, and she said that he told her "oh, don't worry about that" so that is her attitude now. She is smart, but lazy. Does anyone have an article about pregnancy and celiac, or anything I could send her or tell her to maybe get her to re-think getting tested?? I love her so much and I am so worried about her...

Texas Roadhouse Has "pulled" Their Gluten Free Menu

18 October 2007 - 11:02 AM

I just called the corporate office to see if they had a nation-wide gluten free menu, since I have seen different stories from different parts of the country. She said that they "pulled the gluten free menu for now, because they changed some of the recipes, and they have to redo the menu". I told her that I had read that some people had great experiences at their local Texas Roadhouses, and that those local places worked with the people to find a good gluten free meal. She said "if they want to do that, then they can, but we don't have a specific gluten free menu, and we have changed some of our recipes" so that is the "official" word from their corporate office.

If you want to call, the number is 1800-Tex-Road.

Frequent Nausea For 4 Months Now....

06 October 2007 - 11:43 PM

I haven't had "stomach" problems since going gluten-free two years ago. But almost exactly 4 months ago I started getting frequent nausea, after meals, at least 3 times a week. It is not always the same meal, time of day, or anything else I have noticed. I have taken pregnanacy tests, I had blood work done (cholesterol is 166!, but insulin levels are a little high, suggesting the early stages of insulin resistance). I am also getting really bad motion sickness, especially in my husbands manual, when he shifts and it jerks a little. It is so weird. I have never been like this before. Anyone have any ideas?

Deviated Septum- Nose Job? Opinions? Insurance?

25 September 2007 - 11:17 AM

I have a deviated septum. My right nostril has been smaller than my left for my whole life. It wasn't that much of a problem unless I had a cold and was trying to breathe out of that one smaller nostril. Well, I just moved to a much higher altitude, and I am having trouble breathing. And if I just puch my nose to the right (opening that nostril more) it is easier to breathe. So I am thinking about having it fixed....but will insurance pay for it? Since it is "medically" necessary, and not cosmetic? Anyone have any experience with this?
