  1. Wait, I can get glueten from kissing someone? That is so weird. I definately need to do some research!
  2. I need some advice on degluetenizing my kitchen. Any advice is helpful!
  3. This post is so helpful. I was just diagnosed yesterday. This gives me hope and some ideas of what to do and what not to do. These forums are so helpful. I seriously don't know what I would do without them.
  4. Thanks for the kind words. My results from the blood test came back positive. So i am finally officially diagnosed. The doctor was no help though he just gave me pamplets and said be on a glueten free diet and see ya in a year lol! Thank goodness this forum is so helpful.
  5. I am a new member here. Before posting i have read alot of the post on these boards and they are extremely helpful. I was so frightened when my doctor said the words "celiacs disease". I was going to the doctor originally because i had bloody stools and stomach pain with bloating and constantly having bowel movements after everything i eat. So I had an endoscopy and colonoscopy. Colonoscopy was fine but the biopsies from the endoscopy showed possible celiacs disease. My doctor ordered me to have a capsule endoscopy ( the weirdest but really interesting). The results from that showed my villi were extremely damaged. So the doctor ordered me to have the blood test done. So, now to the point, I go to the doctor today to find out the results from my blood test. I have been doing alot of research on here so i think I have prepared myself a little, but I am still a little nervous. I am 27 and female and have a big, extremely italian family. This will be a lifestyle change for me. I guess I will have to start bringing my own food to family gatherings because i know they will look at me insane if I try to change family recipes. Ok I am rambling on. But my point was that I am new to this and could really use some advice, words of wisdom, and whatever you think would help me out!
