Happy Birthday Judy!!


Husband has Celiac Disease and

Husband misdiagnosed for 27 yrs -

The misdiagnosis was: IBS or colitis

Mis-diagnosed from 1977 to 2003 by various gastros including one of the largest,

most prestigious medical groups in northern NJ which constantly advertises themselves as

being the "best." This GI told him it was "all in his head."

Serious Depressive state ensued

Finally Diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003

Other food sensitivities: almost all fruits, vegetables, spices, eggs, nuts, yeast, fried foods, roughage, soy.

Needs to gain back at least 25 lbs. of the 40 lbs pounds he lost - lost a great amout of body fat and muscle

Developed neuropathy in 2005

Now has lymphadema 2006It is my opinion that his subsequent disorders could have been avoided had he been diagnosed sooner by any of the dozen or so doctors he saw between 1977 to 2003

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.

GOSH GUYS, HOW SPECIAL .... :) THANKS RACHEL. SO APPRECIATE ALL YOUR KIND THOUGHTS AND WISHES

TODAY WAS A GREAT RELAXING DAY.

GOT UP LATE AND HAD A LONG RELAXING BATH IN ROBBIN'S INCREDIBLE HOME MADE BATH SALTS. IT HAS REALLY BEEN HELPING MY SKIN INFECTION..THANKS ROBBIN..

THEN WENT TO CHIRO AND HAD A GREAT ADJUSTMENT. VERY HEALING..

I GAVE HER THE 'CELIAC BRACELET' THAT "ANGELICA GROVES" MADE FOR ME. I BOUGHT ONE FOR MYSELF FOR MY BIRTHDAY..I'M LEARNING HOW TO ASK FOR WHAT I WANT AND MAKE IT HAPPEN. AFTER 66 YEARS IT'S ABOUT TIME DON'T YA THINK? STILL WORKING AT IT DAILY.

CHIRO LOVED IT AS SHOWED ME THE BRACLETS SHE WAS ALREADY WEARING. sHE PUT IT RIGHT ON.

NEVER TAKES THEM OFF EXCEPT TO SLEEP. I KNEW SHE LIKED BRACLETS BUT DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT THE HISTORY OF THE ONES SHE WEARS.

SHE WAS SO HAPPY TO HAVE THE 'CELIAC ONE' SHE WEARS THE CHRONS ONE FOR HER SON, A FAITH ONE FROM A CHRUCH FRIEND , ONE FROM A YOUNG BONE CANCER PT THAT SHE TREATED AND ANOTHER CANCER ONE WITH ALL THE STONES ON IT FOR ALL THE KINDS OF CANCER ...AND SHE PRAYS WITH HER BRACLETS..SHES AN AMAZING DR, FRIEND AND HEALER OF THE SOUL AND BODY.

I THEN WENT TO THE HEALTH FOOD STORE AND THEY HAD THE COOKBOOK I'D BEEN LOOKING FOR THAT ROBBIN AND PATTI TOLD ME ABOUT. GOT SOME GOOD EATZ CARROT CAKE..AND FLOURS FOR MY BREADMAKER JIM GOT ME.

CAME HOME AND TOOK A 3 HR NAP AND WOKE UP TO A BEAUTIFUL FLORAL ARRANGEMENT FOR THE CHRISTMAS TABLE FROM THE COMPANY THAT JUST CAME FOR A VISIT AND HELPED ME WITH THE HOUSE WHILE I WAS SICK IN BED FOR 2 OF THOSE DAYS. THEN SOME BEAUTIFUL ROSES FROM MY SON WERE DELIVERED AND JIM GOT ME ANOTHER NEAT PLANT I HAVE TO LOOK UP. HE KNOWS I LIKE 'THE DIFFERENT KINDS' OF PLANTS.

HE WASN'T HUNGRY EITHER AT DINNER TIME SO WE NUKED SOUP..IT WAS A PERFECT DAY. EVEN GOT LOTS OF LONG DISTANCE CALLS WISHING ME A HAPPY DAY...WHAT MORE COULD ONE WISH FOR...

THE BEST GIFT OF ALL IS OUR SON COMING HOME LAST NITE. TONITE HE'S IN THE CITY FOR THE NITE MEETING UP WITH OLD FRIENDS WHO ARE IN TOWN FOR THE HOLIDAYS.

VERY RELAXING AND FUN...

THANKS SO MUCH TO ALL OF YOU FOR YOUR 'GIFT OF FRIENDSHIP'.

LOVE JUDY

Judy...I'm so glad you had such a great day.....it sounds really relaxing and perfect! :)

Thats cool about your chiro wearing the Celiac bracelet you gave her....and how great to have your son there with you for your b-day and for Xmas. :D

Yeah.....its about time you learned how to ask for what you want! I just have one question though....are you 66 or 65??? :unsure:

On the board it says you are 65 today. :huh:

Maybe you're a year younger than you thought you were!! Thats a pretty cool gift in itself. :P

Believe it or not....I did that a couple years back...forgot how old I was and made myself a year OLDER. :blink:

I was very pleasantly surprised when I was told that I had added on an extra year. B)

Anyways...I'm really happy you had a wonderful day! :)
