  1. I am wondering what tests others may have had to diagnose possible other food allergies. I have celiac disease and I am wondering if I have a dairy allergy as well. Any ideas on how to find other food allergies?
  2. Thanks so much for the replies. I did have an upper endoscopy intially to determine if I had celiac disease. But you may be right that I need a repeat test since I have had the latest problem. I feel like I am starting over in trying to determine why my celiac is still active. I felt so much better for a long time but did continue to have a lot of gas over the last few years. It was better but not gone.
  3. Hello! This is my first time to post but I have read many posts from other members and they have proved to be helpful. I was diagnosed with celiac disease in 2009 and have been following a gluten free diet since my initial diagnosis. Right before Christmas, I had an awful week of diarrhea without other symptoms. Now I never had diarrhea before the diagnosis since my predominant problem was constipation. Since the "spell" before Christmas, I have not felt well and my stomach continues to hurt off and on. I had another colonoscopy which was fine and my GI doctor ran some blood tests. My celiac blood panel came back abnormal. He then ordered a prometheus blood test which also confirmed that the celiac was still active. I have been zealous about my gluten free diet and also other issues like lotions and creams and shampoo. Initially I called the drugstore and asked that they flag all my medicines to be checked for gluten. Once learning that my celiac blood panel was still showing activity, I called the drugstore again and had them check all my medicines. I just found out that the prednisone that I had been taking could possibly contain gluten since the company did not test them for gluten. Just wondering if anyone else has this problem. The drugstore was able to run my prescription again (just had one filled) and get me gluten free prednisone. I have to take prednisone for dermatomyositis which was diagnosed in the late 90s.
  4. Thank you, Peter! I will probably be asking more questions as I am still learning. I have been gluten free for 3 weeks and it is getting a little easier.
  5. Hi, I am new to this forum and also to celiac disease. I am wondering if A1 sauce is gluten free. Also I am wondering about Cool whip and Jello. Any answers are very much appreciated.
