  1. A very caring but insistent friend sent me information about using acupuncture to cure celiac disease. I am doing extremely well on a gluten-free diet and have no interest in pursuing acupuncture as a treatment option. Has anyone heard of or used acupuncture to treat this disease? She also swears that acupunture cured her granddaughter's allergy to corn. Nancy
  2. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  3. Accidental Ingestion Of Gluten

    Nothing new...on the advice of my doctor I am eating only white rice and bananas until tomorrow when I can add applesauce. It has made a huge difference....we'll see what happens when I start adding other foods (gluten-free, of course) to my diet!
  4. Accidental Ingestion Of Gluten

    Thanks for your advice. I chatted with my doctor today and she seems to think I have an infection....labwork to follow!
  5. Thank you so much for your response and valuable information. I plan on calling my doctor tomorrow and also plan on being a regular viewer of this forum. In just one day of joining I have learned so much. Your support is invaluable! Thank you to all!!
  6. I have had blood work done for other reasons since my diagnosis. I know that my iron, D and calcium levels have improved since I changed my diet. Are these some of the items that would be checked on a celiac blood panel?
  7. No, I haven't. Is that something that should be done on a regular basis? I am so new to this.....HELP!
  8. I am new to this list and posted this morning about an accidental ingestion of gluten. I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease about 18 months ago and have since followed a very rigid gluten-free diet. On New Year's Eve I had ate aomething with gluten in it and have had D since despite monitoring my diet. After reading your posts, it seems that the accidental ingestion and severe sensitivity could have triggered something else - like sensitivity to other things like milk or soy. I appreciate anyone's opinion!
  9. I had an accidental ingestion of gluten three weeks ago on New Year's Eve. Despite getting back on my very rigid gluten-free diet, I still have diarrhea. I was diagnosed with celiac disease about 18 months ago and have managed it beautifully until now. Any suggestions or is it normal to take such a long time for my body to tolerate food again?
