Thanks Karen,


I was hoping for a little more information.  Like, do Celiacs need to go through the series 2 times, 3 times?

Like stated this is not a vaccine debate.


Thank you for sharing the information, because it is an important piece of information.  Can you please post a link to the article?

I know someone here will explain this better than what I can.

In Topic: Anyone Else With Abdominal Migraine/cyclic Vomiting Syndrome?

12 August 2015 - 07:32 AM

Health insurance issues stopped me from getting my daughter tested for stomach migraines.  She was diagnosed with Celiac at about 16 months old, Eosinophilic Esophagitis at the age of 6, and seems to be doing much better now.  She would go into vomiting cycles with sever gut pain and need to be put on I.V.'s for dehydration.  (it was once a year at least and we would just call it her yearly vacation)  She hasn't had to be hospitalized for the last 2 years as the urgent care near us treats her with a shot of an anti nausea drug to stop the vomiting before she gets severely dehydrated.

In Topic: Thyroid And Lupus Testing

I'm glad you are going in for testing.  My sister just had to have her thyroid removed from going way to long without having Hashimoto's thyroiditis diagnosed.  Her thyroid (in this case Goiter is the correct term) had grown up into her jawline and down into her collarbone. On one side it was down past that collarbone putting pressure in her chest.  The biopsy came back with cancer cells.  It weighed about half a pound.  She looked great immediately after surgery.  It looked like she had plastic surgery neck lift.  Then as it usually goes some complications arose- low hemoglobin and severe anemia.  She had to stay in the hospital longer, receive 2 blood transfusions, and an iron transfusion.  She is at home recovering slowly.


Be persistent with your medical care, and don't let your health decline any where near this situation.  That goiter was crushing her windpipe.


This is not the usual course for Hashi's. Usually the thyroid is killed of to a hardened shriveled piece of yuck.


Prayers for your Barty for a quick proper diagnoses and speedy recovery!
