  1. There was a study where they checked 2 weeks on a gluten-free diet , and antibodies were still going up . The study wasn't about that, so I think that is why they didn't go any further. So... looks like 2 months gluten free? If we think that antibodies are still being made at least two weeks gluten free.... account for the fact that most people need a few weeks to actually figure out and eat gluten-free...I would say it was a bit soon to re- test antibodies. Edit it to add- if you were tested sept 12 and ate gluten for 6 more weeks before going gluten-free - who knows how high it got. Shame on your doctor for doing the re- test so soon and discouraging you!
  2. Later Diagnosis

    Lots of people are diagnosed after 50 according to this https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3227015/

    Are you saying people posted using your profile? Please report that to Admin. I haven't heard of anyone wanting to steal someone's profile to post on here.... but I guess it could happen.
  4. Dr In Cincinnati/n.ky

    These posts are from 2004. Also - are you saying you have 2 or more profiles? Message Scott/Admin and he can combine them.
  5. Did you have a question? Maybe talk to the doctor about the hernia and if it is actually causing these issues? If it is, ask the doctor about treatment/surgery?
  6. Gluten Exposure for Celiac

    Eating a Dominos pizza with all the possible CC is something I would not do. I don't think having a reaction to it makes you "super sensitive".
  7. No problem with Chex. They are made completely differently. The controversy about Cheerios has to do with using oats that were not grown and harvested to be gluten-free. gluten-free Chex are not made with oats.
  8. Endoscopy

    Probably not. They usually don't go past the stomach if all they are looking for is reflux. they would need to go into the small intestine and take biopsies that will be checked for Celiac disease.
  9. I don't think they currently do medically approved Celiac testing ( last I heard). http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/why-dont-you-recognize-tests-stool-tests-or-otherwise-for-gluten-sensitivity-that-are-currently-available-through-companies-like-enterolab-or-cyrex/
  10. That this not the same thing at all! It’s a rinse in the laundry. Even if it didn’t rinse all the way out, you aren’t trailing flour around the house. There is no reason for people to over react and make life harder. Most of us don’t want to live like that! If this sort of thing was a real Celiac concern, I would expect the Celiac experts would warn us about. However,I have never seen a credible source telling us we must have separate laundry machines and can’t use machines used by “ Gluten eaters”.
  11. i can't imagine why it wouldn't be. but its not really important for a Celiac as you don't eat it
  12. This is still not the place for your politcal feelings. this is not relevaent to the topic.
  13. I have seen info that children's antibodies can drop very quickly. The lucky little guys!
  14. I have an ipad and iphone - so not sure if these exact games are available to you. I like a word game called word crossy. Also "1010" games are good to try. Picross style games can be fun
  15. Previous info on this thread is at least 10 years old. So people reading now, please don't go y that old info
