  1. I noticed changes right away and 8 weeks of being careful still seeing some changes. I do know when I by accident ingest gluten, It is much worse then when I was eating regularly. Is your son in early intervention? They are a blessing.
  2. Happy birthday!

  3. i was confused at my results and was just one point above normal and people said I wasnt GS and all i know Gluten makes me sick and I am confused too sandi
  4. Tom's Party is over, I'm glad and it seemed to go ok? Everyone liked it I was good too at the dinner, I didnt have time to eat anything lol BUt Some of the respones I received from my test results here and somewhere else, t hey said that I wasnt gluten-free, So they made me think I was not GS and I had some bagels and a hero, now I am sooo sick and in pain. Plus I have my period and its really bad so I am not feeling well. sandi
  5. I get so sick when I eat gluten, and now I am getting rashes from it. what else could it be? if not gluten That high score I think was from a week long cheat and I was having the runs and stuff thats why I think happen there
  6. Your gluten antibody is slightly elevated according to Dr. Fine's reference range. So you are having an immune reaction to gluten. Your anti-tissue transglutaminase antibody is normal, so that's good. This tests for an autoimmune reaction. ok I am just trying to understand but arnt the both condricting each other? I am not sure what they were looking for for the anti-tissue transglutaminase antibody one? If it was Positive - what would that have meant? <<<"Your fecal fat score is really high. It could be the gluten, or it could be something else.">>> Yes i was really sick then, with a accidental gluten <<<"You have gluten sensitive genes but not celiac genes. This distinction doesn't mean much; the diet is the same.">>> I didnt think the test Dx celiac? Just that you are gluten sensitive? Could it turn in to celiac? thank you for responding I just want to understand sandi

  9. I can't beleive how fist I havea reaction now!~!! Without thinking at a after school party I grabed some pretzels and ate them, with in the hour i was sick, rash on top of head and other S+S I still dont feel right Came home to a letter from my mamogram place, got really scared cause they dont send one usually, and I was scared to open it, But its ok, everything is ok Now the other test result and I wont find out about that till Monday Been a crappy week here Hope things get better s
  10. I would love to join too, it seems now that I am gluten free, i am sooo much more hungry and all i can do is think of food. sandi
  11. they told me they perfer it at least 24 hours in the freezer yuck I am on week 2 waiting for the results. Grrr why does it take so long
  12. is Jace's Grad. It is hard to know where all the time went He just started K there and now he is leaving the school as a 9th grader After we are going to Bennihanna, I dont know what I will do there to eat, Its where he wants to go if I cant get anything, I will just order rice! After the grad, they will have cake and drinks, Ill buy water and call it a day there. 2 days ago I cheated (when will I ever learn???) I didnt think it was a big cheat, I had chinese food Pork with veggies, but I guess the sause made me sick, and I had a ice cream. Yesterday I was soooo sick and in pain I was thinking of going to the hospital, it is by far the worse I ever felt. Today Thank Goodness, I am over the worse, just my PMS I am going for tests on wed. I am not looking forward to them at all, I pray nothing is wrong gyn wise. But I will worry about that tomorrow, I just want to feel good enough to enjoy Jaces special day.
  13. yesterday got my blood work from the dr He didnt tell me much, I will edit this when I get a copy from him and add the results. All he said was my chol. was ok 209 FBS was 108 and and I am barely allergic to egg whites and yolk. I wonder if he did the celiac tests too, cause he doesn't beleive me
  14. I am so tired today, being in that school, was too hot But I stuck to my double D diet (Celiac and diet) For b/fast I had 3 eggs and for Lunch, 2 wendy side salads and for supper 2 chicken breasts and veggies. My arms still have that burning feeling and my back hurt a bit today Tomorrow I go for my mamo and that transvaginal I hate the trans one, and scared of what it will find Its taking me longer to bounce back from this last cheat, and I will try to make sure its my last cheat s
  15. I am finally starting to feel better, I am not so bloated now, and Almost not Nausea. I am trying hard to be gluten free and I think I am doing good, But I have to learn to think about it more, Like today I went to subway and just got a salad and didn't ask if the chicken was ok, I think I had some reaction to it A big concern is that my arms are still burning and I still have that left shoulder pain, I think after Toms party I am going to find a new Dr. Dr. R wasn't interested at all. I am still waiting for the gyn tests I am scared to find the results I pray all is ok i have about 2 more weeks for the poop test. I am scared of finding the results, If I am not celiac on "paper" then what's wrong I am so tired of being sick Been pretty good on a diet but haven't lost anything yet grrrrrrrr all i can think of is food sad isn't it
