  1. It would also be easier to control his diet and get him used to it at a younger age.
  2. They biopsied the lesion itself AND the skin next to it.
  3. I turned 38 yesterday, and was diagnosed with LS about 5 years ago. My mother was just diagnosed with it maybe 2 years ago shorly after she had a hysterectomy. She was fine until her surgery. If I remember correctly, I think I suggested she may have LS.
  4. I was only gluten-free for 2 weeks. I am still in limbo over the whole celiac disease thing. I actually have some allergy testing scheduled for next week. After that, I will work more on diagnosising or ruling out celiac disease.
  5. Puffiness

    Hmmmm. I'm not diagnosed with celiac. At least not yet. Since about May, I have had like a double bag under 1 eye. My eye doctor prescribed some meds that never helped. It is on the side I sleep on. It was really bad and puffy when it first started, but never went away.
  6. They sell those in Wegmans in NJ. Though I haven't seen all those varieties!
  7. It's over a 5 day period. I'd have to go to the doctor Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Not looking forward to the process, but hoping I'll get some answers.
  8. My biopsy for dh came back negative. (I am still questioning my negative celiac disease results, and am planning to further investigate.) I gather many of you have gone through allergy patch testing in search of a reason for your rashes. Just looking for experiences. What things did they test you for and how bad was the process? Were you able to shower at all? It takes 5 days total!!
  9. Again.. Me= undiagnosed and still on a regular diet... with chicken skin. Next week I go for patch testing, then onto further investigation into celiac.
  10. This is kind of weird. I hope no one takes offense to this, but I see the tendency for people to blame EVERYTHING on celiac disease. However, I too have had hip pain for about a year and half. It seemed better for awhile. (Maybe 3 months ?) I am one of those in limbo, undiagnosed, currently on a "regular" diet. I have been having tons of gluten during the holidays, and my hip pain is back in full force. I thought it was from sleeping in on my not-so-comfy bed. Could be anything, but who knows.
  11. Lies?

    Don't buy it. He can't use it as an excuse for everything.
  12. Itchy~ Are you officially diagnosed? According to my derm, my results were negative, but she could not explain my raised ttg Igg. They had also told me before the biopsy that my rash wasn't very active and they weren't sure what the resulst would be. So, I am currently in limbo. I'm going in for patch tests next week. As far as celiac goes, I'm waiting to see what the patch results tell me, then I'll make an appointment with a gastro, as I feel my results weren't accurate. Several things, including this ttg thing, tell me SOMETHING isn't right. The 2 weeks I spend gluten-free, had me feeling better, not ever realizing I was sick aside from lots of itchy rashes.
  13. I agree with what most said about just being gracious. I just wanted to add that if she suddenly realizes and apologizes, please do your best not to make her feel bad. Maybe something like, "Oh, don't give it a 2nd thought. I shared it with my kids/neighbors. They loved it. It was so nice of you to think of me and I couldn't possibly expect everyone remember the details of my diet, especially this busy time of year." Your celiac disease may just suddenly hit her.
