  1. Some may laugh....BUT my favorite work out tunes come off the Rocky 4 soundtrack. The training montage gets me moving every time!!!
  2. I know this may sound strange to you, but I was wondering if anybody has ever had a reaction to dental floss? Every time I floss my teeth I end up with the big "D" the next day. I have tried multiple brands including Glide, Johnson&Johnson, Walmart brand, Giant eagle brand.....every time whamo.... I just don't get it? I was going to mention it to my doctor but I am certain they will think I am nuts! I have not introduced new foods and was doing really well for a while. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks to all! Amy

    If you'd like to stick with Almond milk "Pacific" makes a low fat almond milk that does not contain any soy lecithin. I use it to cook and on my cereal.
  4. I was tested for insulin resistance a year ago and the test was normal.
  5. Thank you for all of your replies. I have read articles that state that it is pretty common for those with celiac to have elevated liver enzymes especially in the beginning. I was just curious if it was common for them to go up and down. They also did a high sensitive CRP level which indicates inflammation. This time it was 12.6 (normal is less than 1) 2 months ago is was 8? I am very confused as I thought I was getting better. I feel a lot better than I have in years. Here is hoping I guess.... Thanks again to all! Amy
  6. Just to let you know I started gluten free in July after I got my test results back.
  7. When I first started eating gluten free my liver enzymes were elevated (moderately). My doctor put me on an herbal liver support and told me to continue with the gluten free diet. 4 weeks later a re-check of my enzymes showed they were back to normal. It's been 2 months since and they are now elevated again. I eat a strict gluten free diet but do eat some occasional Fritos or cocoa pebbles which I thought were gluten free... Anyway, if I were getting glutened some how could that raise them? By the way our whole house is gluten free.Is it normal for them to bounce around like that? I don't see the doctor again until the end of the month. I still have the big "d" about once or twice a week but it has improved a lot since going gluten free. Any input would be much appreciated!! Thank you!

    I forgot about the best one....Kathy's creations which is a gluten free bakery in Alliance! Some of the best goodies!
  9. Restaurants In Ohio

    If you are familiar with the Akron/Canton area there are several restaurants that have gluten free menu's. Capone's offers gluten free pizza's and italian fare. Gregory's, Manchu cafe, Don Pablo's, Outback steakhouse, Cheeseburger in paradise, Carraba's, and I know Bravo italian restaurant offers gluten free pasta's etc. but they do not have an official menu...just need to speak with the chef when you arrive they are pretty helpful. Hope this list helps if I think of any more I will let you know!
  10. Hi! I am a double DQ1 and my score was 1480!
  11. Lolabell, I have not been diagnosed with Celiac disease however I am very gluten sensitive. I had my testing completed through Enterolab. I too struggle with weight issues. I had gained about 75 pounds over several years after having my gall bladder out as well. I think there are a lot of people here that are in the same boat. Just read the gluten diet and weight issues forum. I think you will find a lot of support here and many people who can relate to what you are going through. Good luck to you. I am new here myself with much to learn!
  12. Thank you for your replies. I am still trying to convince both my parents, especially my mom to get tested. She doesn't want to believe it. To me most of her problems could be connected to gluten ie: Type 1 diabetes, thyroid disease,osteoporosis, unexplained belly pain, frequent kidney stones, frequent stools (formed though),chronic cough(non-smoker). She is so stubborn, but I honestly believe she just doesn't want to give up her favorite foods. I wish I could convince her somehow....... I have another question for everybody. I tested positive for casein, soy, and egg as well......should I be leary of these products in my shampoo and personal products as well. For example my shampoo contains soy and casein in it? I don't know how strict to take this? What does everyone else do?
  13. Thank you to everybody that has responded! I think we will get our son the blood work as suggested. My question though is do I need to take him to a pediactric GI or can the regular Pediactric doctor do the test? I want to make sure they do the correct panel on him. What is included in a complete blood panel for celiac? Is there somewhere on this website where I can find that information? I appreciate everyone's help thanks again! Sincerely, Amy
  14. Thank you to all for your replies! I appreciate any and all input! I understand I need to eliminate all of the suspect foods. I was unsure of the fecal fat score being so high if I should investigate it further such as get a colonoscopy to check for inflammatory bowel disease etc? I have been waiting for the nurse at Enterolab to call me back.I had posted here hoping that someone might have had their gall bladder removed as well and know how that would have effected that score. Hopefully they will call me back soon. The intrepretation they sent just said that I was borderline very severe malabsorbtion and that gluten could be the reason. We are going to get our son tested as well. Just trying to decide if we should take him to the doctor or do it through enterolab. Again, thanks to all for your help! I have a lot to learn now about my diet and this website has been a great resource! Sincerely, Amy
  15. Micah, I am not sure what happened but thank you so much for your help!! Hopefully I will get better at posting. I have a lot to learn! Thanks again, Amy
