Does everyone remember their last gluten meal before diagnosis. Mine was a ham and cheese on a kaiser roll. 5 mins after eating the GI called with the good/bad news. 5/03/05.

Not exactly sure but during that time I couldn't keep any food down so it was probably pedialyte and possibly a jar or baby food.

I wish I had eaten something wonderful like pizza or take-out chineese! ha

I had absolutely no knowledge of celiac disease and no idea that I was being tested for it (biopsy taken during a follow-up endoscopy for pancreatitis), so it's kind of funny that my "last meal" before diagnosis was a big pancake breakfast from Perkin's. :P I guess that was a good call on my part.

My last meal before starting the gluten free diet was homemade pizza. I will never ever forget that last meal.

Mine was self diagnosed. I was sick all the time. My son had just been diagnosed with celiac. I had had a bagel from Panera. It made me sick the whole day. Nauseated, belching, bloating, yuck. THat was it. THen I decided I had to try gluten-free. Started feeling better in a week. Had borderline blood results after being gluten-free for 5 weeks. THat was enough for me. NOw if I get gluttened, I feel very sick.

It was reccently actually:

My fiance took me to this resturant that is THE BEST resturant in NYC for -shoot, haha, I forgot what's it's called!- well, it was lamb, in this very thick, AMAZING gravy with this creamy rice all around it and delicious bone marrow (hahah sounds gross) mixed with the gravy......I had TONS of bread for an appetizer and a mozzarella cheese plate-the really gourmet, thick moz. cheese! MMMMMMMMMmm! Then for dessert, we got soft batch chocolate chip cookies and EGG NOG (I love that stuff!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) and put the cookies in the microwave so they were melted and soft and tasted like we just baked them from scratch!

:( I'm getting sad thinking about this meal! I can't have any of that anymore! Ever! I got so sick! I never want to be like that again! But that last hour was pure bliss!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for reminding me! :angry:

Haha, j/k :D

My last meal was a week long so that my DH could really shine out. So the very last one was Zorba the Greek Pizza from BP.

I knew that it was going to be my last hurrah, so I went out for mexican. I had a big carnitas burrito on a flour shell with everything. It was delicious.

Then my doctor called me with my lab results about an hour after I ate. But it was good.

Well, my last gluten meal was a bowl of muesli I ate in an attempt to start eating gluten again for blood tests. It made me so sick I went to have blood drawn the same day. Of course the results were negative. :( I can't say I miss muesli, lol.

After my last meal I ended up in the ER. I was already very sick but wasnt thinking about gluten because my bloodtests were negative. The meal was some kind of breaded fish sandwich with fries. I only ate half of it because I got too sick. :(

Too bad I had no idea it would be my last...if I had known I probably would have had pizza or a big Italian spaghetti dinner with meatballs and tons of bread.

I left the hospital after my upper and lower scope, not suppose to eat until the drugs wore off, but insisted that we stop and get a sub from this sub shop (ebert & gerberts in La Crosse, WI) They have the best bread, makes subways taste like crap! I got a foot long turkey sub with tomatoes, lettuce, and extra mayo! Looking back, I could not have picked something I would have enjoyed more, I just wish I wasnt so doped up so I could remember it better! I did cheat once like a week after DX, with some pizza hut pizza, but I knew how sick it was going to make me so I didnt even enjoy it, I think I had like 2 bites before I chickened out, and then tried to make myself puke hopeing that would help. Ahh what fun....
