Celiac Board- My Sincere Thank You

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I haven't looked at the message board in months which hopefully means I've been doing mostly better but also is because of extreme busyness! I am now in grad school for my Master's while still working full-time in Special Ed and always working as an actor as well and helping my daughter look at and apply to colleges and my son to navigate High School- you all know how it goes! So... I just want to thank every single person on this board who has helped me and been so supportive during these last 2 years of trying to heal and trying to figure out what to eat that doesn't bother me. You have all been so great. It has taken until last week for my tTg level to go into the normal range- finally! It's still High Normal, but Normal! I really do not mean to take this board for granted or to not to do my part to post in order to help others but currently I've just been in over my head!

I encourage all who are new to hang in there and know there will be light at the end of the proverbial tunnel though it may take considerable time. And I do STILL have mysterious glutenings even with an entirely gluten-free house, never eating out and eating only whole foods we prepare ourselves- go figure. But I have more good days than bad and I really credit this board (and a fabulous Naturopath I found in Portsmouth, NH who knows celiac and gluten intolerance well and thinks the Gastro I saw in Portland, Me. needs his head examined...) with saving me and helping me to get my life back.

Okay, this is too long. THANK YOU ALL!

I just had my kid retested for celiac disease and we are waiting for the results.  Her doctor does not hesitate to test since I have a firm diagnosis.  I can also say that my PCP and GI  never hesitate to check for other AI issues either.  They know that you can develop more than one autoimmune disorder.  Better to catch it early before damage!   If you get an endoscopy, be sure to do a gluten challenge 2 to 4 weeks prior or your result will be negative!
