  1. Our daughter was tested and I just got a call from the doctors office. She said the most sensitive "one" showed negative and the less sensitive"one" was just a little elevated. The doc would explain on our next visit which is over a week away! Does anyone know what this means???? Is she considered to be negative for celiac if the most sensitive showed neg? What does the other one mean? HELP!
  2. Thanks for all your responses. I guess we will keep trying things....overall he seems to be doing great considering that when he was diagnosed he was hospitalized with a low blood count of 5! He had to have blood transfusion of 4 pints....felt like a new man after about a week. All your comments are greatly appreciated!
  3. Hi, my husband has celiac and has been on a gluten-free diet since April. We are still learning but he seems to be doing good. He has gained 20 pounds since his diagnosis and looks so healthy but he is experiencing some diarrhea. We cut out bananas because we heard that they are loaded with acid...something we did not know! That was a bummer cause he loves them! He eats alot of meat and veggies, not much fruit. Could it be that he needs to eat more raw foods like fruit and raw veggies i.e. carrots, broccoli????? I'm confused on what is causing this. It only occurs in the mornings. He goes a few times then he is okay the rest of the day. Please help. Thanks!
  4. Thanks jerseyangel. My husband has recently been diagnosed and this is all new to me. Thank you for the help!
  5. Does anyone know what brand of bacon to buy that is safe? Thanks.
  6. Hi, well my husband was just diagnosed with celiac last week! Our world has been turned upside down as you all know! I am a nervous wreck not to mention his feelings of anger.....he is a tobacco chewer. Recently he has been using Grizzly smokeless. Does anyone know if any of it is safe? Please help me.....I know I will be depending on your responses to very many questions. We have found that in our area it is not well known and we feel like we are on our own with this.... Thanks in advance. kymom
