Guesssss Whatttttt

Thinks she's gluten intolerant also.

My daughters are starting to pay more attention. They are starting to understand why dad steers

clear of the Chinese Food, the Subway Sandwiches and cake. My nearly 18 year old daughter is

showing clear symptoms after a glutenated weekend. My daughter is hard of hearing, and knows sign well. We were at a birthday party this weekend and she was clearly signing what she thought was going to happen (to her) if she ate that big piece of cake....:)

Wife and oldest daughter remain uninterested in the gluten free lifestyle ;)


Dental Enamel Defects

Gastro symptoms

Positive Dietary Response

Enterolab Antigliadin IgA positive 12/06

Transglutaminase IgA Positive

Blood TG IgA Negative 2/07

HLA-DQ 3,1 (Subtype 7,5)

Gluten Intolerant...Likely non Celiac

I am really hoping that explosive D in ASL is something along the lines of spelling out wheat and doing the tummy rub sign.

:)

Glad your daughter's catching onto ya!

Good for your daughter! My 15 yo discovered the same thing and is very dedicated to the diet now. So much better to avoid problems than to try to fix them when you're older.

Started Specific Carbohydrate Diet on 8-16-09 because son was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis and want to give him moral support.

Diagnosed with Minimal Change Nephrotic Syndrome in 2003. Discovered that going completely gluten-free put me in remission.

I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Psalms 27:13

Dear JerryK,

I am not surprised! These things are genetic! It is good she is learning now. The later you find out, the more problems can be caused. That girl is smart!

Sincerely,

It's actually more like making a fist with one hand. Your palm goes flat against the bottom of the fist....

and then you make a motion, indicative of a "valve opening". It's quite descriptive for those in the know :lol:

For greater emphasis, you can hold the "valve" open multiple times and with more vigor!

Your daughter is a very smart and sensible girl to be able and willing to take responsibility for her own health.

HAHAHAHAHA!!! You know, I think I had a deaf guest make that sign at me at work once. I worked in a hotel. I'm pretty sure it was in reference to one of my coworkers... heh heh heh....

On another note, has anyone noticed how RECENT of a disease this is? I honestly think it's only really been around for about 150 years. Funny how it came along with the advent of commercial processed flours and sugars..... Perhaps theres been some genetic breakdown? I think the Weston A Price foundation has it nailed. Start eating food from 500 years ago and your body will thank you. It's quite a hard process, I'm not even there myself yet purely because of the VOLUME of food I require (I'm one those disgusting skinny people that HAS to eat all the time). But I give this whole caveman diet thing a lot of credit.

No, no. It's been around since antiquity.

A Brief History of the Disease

As far back as 250 A.D., Aretaeus of Cappadocia included detailed descriptions of an unnamed disease in his writings. When describing his patients he referred to them as "koiliakos," which meant "suffering in the bowels." Francis Adams translated these observations from Greek to English for the Sydenham Society of England in 1856. He thus gave sufferers the moniker "celiacs."

I'd say go back to eating food from 10,000 years ago, pre-neolithic times. :) The ancient egyptians were about the first to start suffering from modern diseases that we currently have and they ate a lot of grain.

Wheat is pretty new to the human diet and is becoming a larger and larger component of it.

Dear Julie-uk-nz,

Thanks for the link!

Dear Nancym,

Hey, I read about that too! Heart disease did not exist, nor did obesity until people began cultivating grain! I read about it in "ZonePerfect Meals in Minutes" by Dr. Barry Sears. I found that fascinating! Thanks for the info! That just proves Celiacs have been around for a very long time. I am with Dr. Sears, I do not think we were ever supposed to have eaten grain at all.

Sincerely,
