My First Entry

Okay, I've never done this before, but figured it would be a great outlet for me to be able to talk about all the little things that come up when no one is around to chat with.I am still recovering from an incident that occurred Friday, two weeks ago. I am on the tail end of the recovery from a gluten incident and the irritable intestines are getting back to normal. My standard reaction is 2-4 days of pain, gas, bloating and diarrhea and exhaustion, sometimes with a DH rash. That is followed

Why A New Title For Every Post?

So, I guess the point of blogging is to make an entry every day...like a diary? I'm trying to figure out how to post pics. Finally, after many tries, here's my sweet little pup, Pearlie.   <img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v191/Mosaics/PearlieYr12.jpg" alt="Image hosted by Photobucket.com">

Learning About Blogs

Hi everybody. I'm just learning about blogs and trying to figure it all out. It's funny because my husband and I were talking about blogging last night and he asked me if I'd like for him to set up a blog for me (he's a computer genius ), but I said, "What would I have to talk about?" Then, lo and behold, this morning I got a message from celiac.com telling me that they have a new blog feature. It must be a sign that I need a blog.

First Blog

I have arrived   This is my first blog. Not that you care, or it's keeping you up at night, as pre-diagnosis probably did. I am a writer and dancer and celiac. All three are difficult and delightful.   I thought living without wheat, etc would be devestating. It is not, rather it is illuminating. Until last year I was pasta girl, pizza girl, bisquit girl, cinnamon bun girl. I had no pain from this. For over 40 years. Although I was constipated for most of that time. But I thought that was ju

A Quick Summation Of The Past Year Since The Diag.

*July 2, 2004--my mother's birthday and the day of my bloodwork (IgG)*One week later--tested positive for IgG antibodies. Was told by my Gastro's head nurse, "Here are all the things that you can't have. Are you ready?" *Found this site and support group on the 17th.*Bought rice bread, tasted it for the first time, and hated it. Got used to it eventually, and now enjoy it, except when it crumbles--that sucks.*Talked to the Food Services staff at Thiel and told them about my condition--which they

I'll Bet You Can Relate

Greetings, all, hope this finds you well. The following is my journal entry from the night before I began my new celiac lifestyle. I wrote it to help process my own feelings, and thought it may be beneficial for another struggling "newby" to realize you are truely not alone. Where to Now?I'm angry and lost. Thought I'd found the answer recently with a name to the mysterious symptoms that have consumed me for months; the need for more sleep than a newborn, irritability...okay, b%$@#iness to a

So, Get This...

I shop at a large local grocery store chain (Fred Meyer, for those of you who know it) and they have a wheat free section. They have recently moved this section and first it took them about two weeks to move the sign with it and then the other day I was purusing it, looking for more stuff and they had products right under the wheat free sign where the first ingredient was wheat! I'm not kidding! Literally the product right under the sign says "organic enriched wheat flour" right on the front of

Starting From The Beginning

I'm the lucky one in this crowd, no doubt about it. I had a baby and after three month of diarrhea the Dr. quickly diagnosed me as being allergic to gluten...that was 5 days ago. 3 months of suffering sounds like nothing compared to the other stories out there....I have some liver damage, but that will heal with time! Where do I go from here? Well, I feel incredible. 5 days sans gluten has given me this great energy boost and I didn't take a nap yesterday and I stayed awake until 10:30...I

Hello!

Hi! Welcome to my blog. My screen name is mytummyhurts, but my real name is Abby, I am 26.I was diagnosed with celiac disease last October. I have basically been gluten free for a few months now. But honestly, I'm still getting used to all the ingredients and I think I still make mistakes. I also need to buckle down and research all my beauty products, etc. I had been feeling pretty good up until a few days ago. But the past few days I've started feeling kind of sick again. This morning I felt b

Intro

Welcome to my blog. I will be using this space to bring together information I have gathered about my specific food intolerances so that maybe someone out there who identifies with any of them can make some connections to help them figure out what might be going on with them.A list of food intolerances and allergies I seem to have at this particular point in time (who knows, there may be more?) are as follows:gluten-intolerancenightshade-intolerance (potatoes, bell and spicy peppers, eggplant, t

Intro

So this is my intro post I guess. I actually do have a main blog, dedicated to my 2 1/2 year old daughter at O. Baby! and a main blog (currently on hiatus) at Life and Love in the Desert. But I figured a celiac.com blog might be interesting too.I was diagnosed with celiac disease the first time when I was about one year old, in 1976. I was originally diagnosed with failure to thrive and after changing dozens and dozens of disgusting cloth diapers every day for over a year, my mother took matters

well, had a rough night. I had wheat yesterday and boy, did I pay for it. All night long my stomach ached and cramped. It's also kicked up my ra, could hardly get out of bed this morning. I can't wait to get off prednisone next month!I made myself some scrambled eggs with a little cheese. put a little miracle whip on that and had a glass of orange juice. oj won't help the hypo but i knew I couldn't handle milk and my wrists are too weak to lift a tea kettle this morning and water, well, wa

Getting Started

Well- this is my first entry. I'm actually a journal keeper and a writer so this should come fairly naturally to me although I've never gotten into this whole blogging thing. I was just "diagnosed" with Celiac's back in January (2005) but we'll get into that later. I've got quite a story to tell and I hope that, if nothing else, it makes one more person out there aware of Celiac's. But, all things in good time.By the way, as a starter, my blog's subtitle "Blog of a sick chick" IS supposed to be

Introduction

Greetings, All. I hope this finds you well. I'm halfway into my 2nd year of my Celiac diagnosis. My story is much like yours. I was sick as a dog, dropping weight, and suffered with unrelenting bone pain and fatigue. I was fortunate enough (unlike some of you ) to cross paths with a GI doc who suspected Celiac from the start. From there, I struggled with depression and deprevation regarding the dietary restrictions, ate way too much rice, gained back the weight plus some in a place I NEV

Introduction

Hi. This is about how I fought to get my energy back and live my life again. Before I began a glutin free diet, I was almost incapacitated with fatigue, but now, five years later, I feel strong and am able to live my life. I can't say I'm 100%, and I still have bad days, but nothing like the days I spent lying on the couch, too exhausted to answer the phone. Today, a bad day means I'm tired early in the day and have to pace myself, rather than at the end of the day. I had all the markers for Ch

    • Increased fasting numbers even in a low carb diet is common for a type 2 diabetic who is insulin resistant.   It is called Dawn Phenomenon.  If your post parandial numbers are over 200 or lower than 70 than you should consult a doctor to determine what kind of diabetic you might be.  You could be prediabetic eventually becoming insulin resistant and possibly developing TD2.  

      My neighbor recently had her pancreas removed due to cancer.  She must be on insulin and take enzymes to survive.  She instantly became a diabetic who MUST take insulin.  Your body needs glucose.  If you are Keto, it will still find a way to make glucose.  Too much protein and it turns to glucose.  

      The only way to determine if you are a TD1 or a TD2 is to get tested.  

      It sounds like your Ulcerative Colitis is flaring.

      If someone is diabetic they will need to take insulin in order to keep their blood sugar down. A high blood sugar level can cause damage to tissue and a wide variety of health problems. Nobody can live without insulin. 

      A doctor, if you have access to one, would be able to tell if you are prediabetic or recommend a treatment plan. 

      Yeah I did whole lot of research on it after this on the insulin and glucagon and how you can make glucagon the dominant hormone to have your body use fatty acids for fuel. BUT your liver will still be processing glycogen into glucose as a response to prevent glucose from tanking. All this time insulin is still needed for your bodies cells to utilize the glucose. 
      My pancreas we know is only getting 15% the nerve signals at the T7, I think it is just bogged down and I should keep to a prediabetic diet and taking enzymes to ease the burden on it. Maybe they can get better testing or a better treatment.

    Thanks Posterboy, that was interesting information.  I believe that I had read something elsewhere about tetracycline, at least, being used instead of, or along with, Dapsone for severe or refractory cases of DH. Unfortunately, even if I had medical insurance (which I do not), and had a regular doctor who was even willing to recognize and accept my condition for what it is, I don't know what kind of luck I would have in persuading that hypothetical doctor to give me a particular and non-sta

He's still going to have to eat gluten even for an endoscopic biopsy. 2 weeks minimum. Plus guidelines say no dx on an endoscopic biopsy alone - you have to have the positive blood to go with it. Even that 2 weeks will deposit more antibodies under his skin if he's got dh.  Let me put it this way. The gut damage is the gut damage & if he's celiac & it sounds like he is but we don't have labs to prove it, then there is a treatment for it. Only 1 treatment for it. A very strict gluten
