Hey! My name is Christina and I run the I Heart Paws Pet Community & forums. You can read my dog, Maximus' story here: http://iheartpaws.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1719 ... there is also a link on that page telling Maximus' story from before these problems arose... again! I apologize for there being so much to read, but if you have the time to skim those threads it would be greatly appreciated!

Coincedentally, my fiancee has severe stomach problems (Celiac disease runs in his mother's side of the family) and when he went on the zone diet (gluten free) they disappeared. He refuses to go to the doctor, but I'm working on him. We truly believe he has Celiac disease as well!. However, he is able to manage his symptoms with Lomodil (sp)... now Maximus is on Lomodil as well!! After reviewing Maximus' allergy test from last year with my fiancee's sister (who is a nurse) we came to the conclusion that he may have Celiac disease. He is allergic to EVERY gluten, barley, potato, wheat, corn, etc. He was on Wellness Simple Solutions, a food consisting of Brown Rice, Venison and supplements and was doing wonderful for a year, but after getting sick again I'm suspecting the rice to be a culprit. He's only two, so he was just a puppy when he first got sick and the allergies may have matured as he did. He gets severe Cholitis and IBD as a result of his food allergies.

In a few days we are going to send a stool sample to the lab for an advanced culture. However, in the meantime I want to switch to a homecooked diet and drop the dog food altogether. While I'm homecooking for my dog, I figured I can homecook for my fiancee since they both have the same condition (I guess that can be looked at as a good thing since gluten isn't good for you anyway- so the diets in our household can be consistant). I was hoping I could get some pointers, learn a bit about the disease, get reciepes and support!

Thank you so much for offering a place to get help with Celiac disease, I look forward to meeting all of you!!

Enterolab positive results only June 06:
Me HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0301; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2, 7)
Husband HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0302; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2,8)



The whole family has been soy free since February, gluten free since June 2006.

The whole family went back to a gluten diet October 2011.  We never had official testing done and I decided to give gluten a go again.  At this point I've decided to work on making some gluten free things again, though healthwise everyone seems to be fine.  The decision to add gluten back in was also made based on other things I'd read about the 2nd sequence of genes.  It is my belief that we had a gluten intolerance, but thanks to things I've learned here, I know more what to keep an eye on.  If you have a confirmed case of celiac, please don't go back to gluten, it's a lifelong lifestyle change.

Welcome Christina!

Try searching the recipe forums. There is a huge variety of recipes, most of which your fiance would probably enjoy, and some of which I'm sure he could share with Maximus.

Also, feel free to post any questions you have, undoubtedly someone on the board has had a similar experience and will be able to offer a suggestion.
