    After many years of unexplained medical issues, I was finally diagnosed with celiac disease in 2002.  The first couple of years were a rough road traveled, but I am feeling better than I ever have.  It is important that I share what I have learned over the years with others and to do my part to help raise awareness of celiac disease.

    Finally a reliable, simple, affordable and very rapid test for the detection of celiac disease—and it can be done within the comfort of your own home!
    The new Biocard Celiac Test from 2GPharma Inc. can be used as an aid in the diagnosis of celiac disease, although confirmation can only be done by a medical doctor.
    The Biocard Celiac Test is a home test for the detection of celiac disease-associated IgA antibodies to transglutaminase from a fingertip blood sample that can be obtained hygienically via a small, sterile lancet that is contained within the Biocard Celiac Test kit.
    Test results can be read within 10 minutes. The sampling is practically painless and all materials required for the test are included along with fool proof step by step instructions on how to perform the test (although it is important to read the instructions fully before you use the kit). The results are easy to read and have a 93% accuracy. 
    I decided to use the Biocard Celiac Test on my husband and the entire procedure took less than 2 minutes and the results were received within 10 minutes.  Luckily, he did not carry the antibodies for celiac disease at this time.

    I had a gluten-free bread that "worked", until I recently tried the gluten-free certified Rudi's Multigrain Bread. I'm always a bit of a skeptic when trying new gluten-free products especially gluten-free bread! However, I couldn't ignore the buzz about Rudi's gluten-free bread and I am so glad that I had the opportunity to give it a try. I took out a slice of their Multigrain Bread to try and was pleasantly surprised. Rudi's bread was literally like a slice of heaven. Their Multigrain Bread had such an amazing taste and texture, even though I'm usually not a fan of mulitgrain breads. However, I still had to put it to the ultimate test and make a deli-style sandwich with all the fixings. I have yet to find a gluten-free bread that doesn't fall apart after the first bite when I add moist items like pickles, tomatoes and avocado. I was so happy when the sandwich actually held together after each bite...down to the very last! Needless to say I've been getting my fill of gluten-free sandwiches lately, and felt it was important to share my excitement with everyone.

    All Natural Bites has created a healthy snack bite that is raw, all natural and gluten-free.  
    What I also like about this product is that it does not contain either soy, dairy or sugar!  The Peanut Butter Crisp is chewy and has just the right amount of peanut butter flavor.  
    These are truly “bites” and are the perfect size to satisfy a craving for sweets, without unnecessary or harmful ingredients.  If you try these, be sure to purchase several bags as they are truly deliciously addicting, yet low in calories.

    When I first put an orange flavored TruJoy Organic Original Fruit Chew in my mouth and began chewing, I soon noticed an intense explosion of orange flavor. It reminded me a bit of the Starburst candies that I used to eat as a child—but instead of containing corn syrup and artificial junk—these chews are organic and contain real fruit juice and cane sugar.
    The texture and chewiness was great, and it seemed to last forever. Other flavors in the package included strawberry, cherry and lemon, and each of them was just as wonderful and intense as the orange.
    I also got a bag of TruJoy Organic Choco Chews, and again, when I put one in my mouth and chewed it I was brought back to an old favorite of mine called a Tootsie Roll, but like the Organic Fruit Chews, the Organic Choco Chews use only organic and natural ingredients, and you can really tell the difference.
    Another think I like about this company is that they are a member of “1% For The Planet,” and donate a minimum of 1% of their revenue to organizations that support environmental causes.
    If you like healthier versions of some of your favorite candies, and like companies that contribute to the environment, TruJoy chews are a perfect fit.

    Ah, thank you so much for clarifying that, Squirmingitch!  I had actually tried searching threads in this forum to figure out just what nightshade family veggies were doing to people with celiac disease, but the answer was not clear to me.  I'll rest a bit easier now when I eat my breakfast potatoes tomorrow morning. You know, I kind of like potatoes for breakfast!  I had them, peeled and boiled, with some olive oil, salt (non-iodized), freshly ground black pepper (my one spice concession o
    Moleface, I have profound respect and sympathy for you in what you what through with the medical industry (yes, it is an industry). I had two different and unrelated health problems back in the 1970s and 1980s, for which I visited a number of different doctors and hospitals.  Ironically, the one that was gastrointestinal in nature, which I now strongly believe was celiac disease, went completely undiagnosed --- even after spending almost a week in the hospital being subjected to almost ever
    Alaskaguy, the thing with the nightshades is inflammation. I've never heard of nightshades making anyone's dh flare or anything else. Seems like ppl avoid nightshades to stop their body from hurting.
