Well, I about "clicked' my heels when leaving the Dr's office today! My AST was 111 when I was diagnosed, (normal level is 40) and today the results are 42!! My ALT was 132 (norm is 40) and today its 60!! Wow, what a difference in three months just being gluten free!! Also my LDL Chol went down to 134 and HDL up to 49!! The other good number....although my triglycerides were not overly high, they also went down from 99 to 79!! The only number that is staying the same is my glucose at 113, which of course they consider a bit higher than they would like it to be,(65-99) but really that is not bad.

Now, on my quest to get another Dr. because this one really does not have much of a "clue" when it comes to Celiac Disease.

Need to go eat my gluten-free lunch now!!! :)

      I prepare everything for the holidays in my kitchen.

      If someone wants to help, they can go shopping with me, give me a gift card for food, or even do simple jobs with prep WHILE wearing food service gloves and supervised...

    • So I am in my late fifties and was diagnosed with Celiac disease about 8 months ago.  I travel a lot for work and the other day stopped in at McDonalds to have a Greek Salad, found out after it has couscous which contains wheat.  I find that after digesting gluten I get sick about an hour later and feel terrible for hours.  Does everyone experience this? I have been to 3 weddings and asked for Gluten free and have been sick twice, no more eating at weddings. ...
