  1. Resturant Chains That Have Gluten Free Options?

    Yes, totally AMAZING! Love the bread that comes out before the meal! Pizza great, pasta too! THANKS BIAGGIS! They also have separate prep area!
  2. It's amazing to me that you went dairy free so quick after your celiac diagnosis. What prompted you to do it? I have been gluten free since Sept 10 but have not omitted anything else from my diet because I think I want to be in denial that I have other intolerances!!! However after 7 months gluten free, I still am not "regular" like I thought I would be. Bloating gone but still other GI problems. I was worried about dairy and corn just because I hear about so many other celiacs that have issues with them!
  3. Please try your best not to stress sweetheart! But as pregnant moms, we constantly worry! I have had 3 pregnancies and probably had full blown celiac disease the whole time but everything went ok. All my kids were small for size (IUGR) and did better out of the womb at the end of the pregnancies so I delivered them 1-2 weeks early. Daughter was 5 lbs, 13 oz, middle son was 6 lbs, 9 oz, and baby boy was 5 lbs, 7 oz. I was diagnosed last year after getting really sick at the end of my pregnancy. AGAIN...I ate gluten the ENTIRE pregnancy cause I had NO clue I had celiac. I was first in my family diagnosed. Now my sons have come back with DQ2 & DQ8 genes so they are gluten free now. Good Luck to you! If I ate gluten EVERY day, you will be ok I'm sure with just a little bit!
  4. Diagnosed with Celiac Disease & Microscopic colitis in September 2010.

    Three year old son with TTG-91 & DQ-2 & DQ-8 genes. Biopsy was negative. Also has lactose intolerance. Been gluten free since Feb 2011.

    One year old son has DQ-2 & DQ-8 genes. Taking him gluten free in April 2011.

  5. Cracked Heels Healed!

    That is so funny because just yesterday I was thinking about how my heels have felt sooooo smooth! I was diagnosed with celiac disease in Sept 10 so 8 months gluten free. Funny coincedence? Who knows? I like it though!
  6. Hi! Last year, I was diagnosed with celiac disease (and microscopic colitis) after a very high TTG antibody and colonscopy and endoscopy. My middle son (3) was also tested and had high antibodies (TTG=91) but endoscopy was negative for celiac (although we did find out he had lactose intolerance...which of course goes hand-in-hand with celiac!). Pediatric GI said let's test him again in 6 months. I really couldn't believe this was the advice I was getting but went with it. In 6 months when we retested, we did the gene test this time. He has the DQ2 and DQ8 which are the major celiac genes. He has been gluten free for almost 2 months now. My youngest son (1 year) had the gene test this month and came back with the DQ2 and DQ8. What would you do? The doctor did not order the antibody test this time for him, only the gene test so I don't know if his antibodies were high. Would you go ahead and take him gluten free since his brother and myself are already gluten free? I really don't see the need to feed him gluten filled foods like poptarts, donuts from the bakery, and regular pizza to have to possibly take it all away one day. I love to bake so I make a lot of "like" gluten-filled foods but they are not the same but he will never know the difference! The only thing that complicates it is that they both go to daycare so it is an ordeal to coordinate what they will eat and it gets expensive and time consuming! Advice???
