I applaud you for your work and view on celiac disease. I am in that group also, as well as my sister, and one daughter. Also my mother and many of her cousins have celiac. I would like to read your blog and use many of your recipes. I have friends who have celiac also. Thank you.

My daughter has just been diagnosed with celiac disease. I've started the process of cleaning out our kitchen, but I'm unsure how much I need to get rid of. Does the dishwasher get rid of gluten on metal bowls?

Bigchan, welcome to the forum! Your narrative is not an uncommon one. Many report that after going gluten free they still show inflammatory disease markers in followup testing. I wish it were the case that going gluten free is the magic bullet that we all have expected it to be at the outset...

You could try the gluten free diet for six months then have your antibody levels remeasured. If the tTG IgA goes down, it would suggest that gluten was causing your body to make that antibody. Celiac damage can be missed in an endoscopy.

Be forewarned & print this article out & take it to the doc with you. Many people with DH have no digestive symptoms and only about 40% of them have the positive blood tests (serology) for celiac disease. However, they almost always have the same, gluten-dependent intestinal damage as those ...

Yeah I found "scents" Cologne and artificially overly smell things make me feel nasiuated and sick. I love just baking spices in the oven as it is the only fragrances I can stomach in my house....Heck that one time I spilled Italian seasoning and vacuumed it up....OMG my house smelled like olive ...
