  1. I started canning for the first time this year did the boiling jar thing don't know what it is called. Since have beed dignosed with celiac and was wondering if canning spices are gluten free what are you doing about that?
  2. Recently I had blood work done and a biopsy of the small intestine. The lab called from the biopsy and said it showed that I have early stages of celiac disease. After waiting a month I called doctors office to find out what the rest of my results were and where I go from here. The nurse called me and told me that because my blood work did not show positive results and the biopsy only shows early stages of celiac disease that it was not nessary to start glutin free diet and they will see me again in 4 years. What about the pain I went to see him for in the first place? If I keep eating glutin won't it get worse and at what stage of the disease do you start a glutin free diet?
  3. Does animals that are grain or oats feed present a problem for gluten contamination?
  4. Interesting, my left finger is at the line of my ring finger and my right pinky is about 1/4 " shorter then the line on my right hand. I have Discoid Lupus, SLE Lupus and Celiac Disease. Hmmmmm
  5. This is something I would like to know the answer to also so please keep us informed if you go for second opinion. (Same blood work always say related to lupus now that been dignoses with celiac probably say due to celiac but they never do anything more) Good Luck
  6. I was told 2 days ago that I had gluten disease by the biopsy of my small instestine but no blood work back yet so I'm not sure where to go from here or if and when to start the Glutin free diet. But my stomach hurts everytime I eat and in bathroom with in 1 to 2 hours. They say I'll probably need more blood test done and from what I've read shouldn't go off gluten until all test are done. This comes after being diagnosed with Lupus last year.
